Activision started banning Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters in one of the biggest waves of banning all time.
This time, the company has banned more than 60,000 cheaters, according to the Vice website (via IGN ), which learned of this wave of bans from three sources familiar with Activision. This is the third major wave of bans since the game’s release last year. More than 50,000 players were banned in the first wave in April 2020 and another 20,000 in September.
This ban comes just a day after Warzone’s popular streamer, Vikkstar123, announced that he would no longer play. It echoed feelings found throughout the Warzone streaming community at a time when the game is in the worst state it has ever been due to hackers and cheaters.
Sources close to Vice said that this wave of banning targeted cheaters using EngineOwning, as all account holders who were using the software to cheat, has been “eliminated.” On the EngineOwning website, the cheat developers say they are working on updating the system.
