Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software has offered an anti-cheat update via Twitter. According to the developer, two ban waves were executed last week that banned over 50,000 Warzone accounts for cheating.
Has been a while since our last anti-cheat update!
Two #Warzone ban waves this week. Over 50,000 accounts banned combined. 🚫
Targeting repeat offenders, and much more.

Raven Software has also said that the ban waves targeted repeat offenders. The developer has been consistently working on reducing cheating and hacking in the game. Since the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone, the dev team has banned over 5,00,000 suspicious accounts. The developer has previously revealed its plans to combat cheaters by banning accounts every day, taking strict actions against the commercial market of cheat providers, and restricting cheaters from moving to alternate accounts.
Publisher Activision has recently blocked the release of an undetectable cheat system called User Vision Pro, after seeing footage of the system working in Call of Duty: Warzone. User Vision Pro offered aim assist and auto-fire and it could run in any game on PC as well as console. The cheat system was claimed to undetectable as its script ran on a different computer, suggesting that it won’t alter any game files and allow it to stay undetected from anti-cheat software. After Activision reached out to User Vision Pro creator User101, they shared a statement:
“At the request of Activision Publishing, Inc (“Activision”), I will no longer be developing or providing access to software that could be used to exploit their games. My intent was never to do anything illegal. At the end of the video that brought so much attention to this project, it stated ‘coming soon’. The software was never published. This type of technology has other actual assistive benefits, for example, by pointing a webcam at yourself you could control movement without the use of limbs. Unfortunately, because of its potential negative impact I will not be developing it further.”
