Call of Duty fans have called on Modern Warfare developers to take action against players using mods in Warzone that give extra aim assist, no recoil, rapid-fire, and more.

Following the latest wave of player bans on July 7, which also seemed to have an effect on innocent players, fans of the popular title have been voicing their concerns on the number of hackers in Warzone.

While Infinity Ward has previously provided updates on the number of bans they have dished out, players are now calling on the developers to address the root of this recurring issue.

Warzone players call for cheaters to be banned

Although there has been claims of cheaters in almost every Warzone match, the tools that are allowing players to install these mods have seemingly gone unchecked.

One Warzone player u/Gulaglive explained that there the “XIM, Cronus Zen and Strike packs” would all have to be assessed for the unfair advantages that they can potentially give in-game.

After highlighting the differences with each mod, which are available for both console and PC players, they called for Infinity Ward to find ways of detecting those who use these cheats.

“I hate thinking I got wrecked by a computer instead of raw talent. There’s no pride in these people. Why doesn’t IW ban them?” Gulaglive added.

The post received a lot of support from other players, who had also encountered their fair share of cheaters, with many calling for Warzone’s competitive integrity to be restored.

The outcry comes not long after clips started to surface of the Cronus’ no recoil mods, revealing just how powerful these mods can be in Warzone and Modern Warfare, with even pro players voicing their concerns.

However, despite players calling for ways to detect these cheats, it is unclear just what Infinity Ward has planned to counter these unfair mods.

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
