The July wave of bans have come through to Warzone as Raven Software removed over 50,000 hackers. But players are still not happy and are not being shy about their feelings. 

There has been quite the buzz around the Warzone community lately with games being ruined by hackers. Whether it’s going invisible, walling, or just aim-botting, the community has been asking for action to be taken against these cheaters.

Warzone players received some good news regarding hackers, but it still isn’t the answer the community is looking for.

While around 50,000 hackers were banned on July 16 by Raven Software, the community seems not to think this will help the free-to-play game’s cheater problem.

Warzone ban waves not enough, fans want anti-cheat

According to Activision, Warzone has over 100 million players so the community feels that banning less than 1% of the player base will not fix the issue of hackers running through Verdansk.

People took their frustration to the Twitter replies, with one by the name of ‘internalcnflct’ laughing at the devs because the hackers will be able to make new accounts.

Other players were all asking the same question: when will there be a proper anti-cheat in the game?

‘DeltaKila’ is tired of hackers and wants to know if the devs are ready to get serious about it.

Warzone streamer Stukawaki was permanently banned live on stream in the middle of a tournament. Turns out someone hacked into his account and was cheating in Warzone lobbies. Warzone does have a two-factor authentication system and when players set it up they’ll receive two Double Battle Pass XP Tokens.

Banned for being too good?

Brett Hayes along with other people are claiming that the devs are banning people that are not even hacking. So it raises attention to what Raven Software’s “anti-cheat” system consists of.

Other replies include people posting their Activision IDs claiming they were wrongfully banned while playing the game.

Raven Software have not made it public what goes into their banning process or their plans for a proper anti-cheat, but the community will not let them hear the end of it until it happens. Ban waves don’t seem to be cutting it anymore.
