Call of Duty anti cheat is finally getting an update. Since the release of Call of Duty: Warzone, hacking and cheating have been a frustrating part for players. However, Raven Software is creating an entirely new anti-cheat system to try to fix some issues with cheaters in their latest title update.
Activision, Sledgehammer Games, and Raven Software unveiled their new game Call of Duty: Vanguard. The video further explained the events that lead up to World War II as well as how it will be played out in the game. Black Ops Cold War also got a prominent place which showed off its features like zombies mode much more than last year’s title did at E3 2018’s presentation.
Raven will continue to lead development of Warzone, starting with a new map and integrating WWII-era weapons into the game.
Rumor has it that the next update is coming soon. It’s supposed to come out around November 5th, which is when Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released!
Call of Duty Anti Cheat Still Needs A Lot of Work
Last week, a Tiktok user posted to the internet with an incredulous tone about his newly found hardware banned status from Call of Duty: Warzone. His entire machine was locked out and he couldn’t just create another account for himself as it would be useless without being able to access that specific game mode.
Activision is coming for cheaters. They used rushman360’s Tiktok story of woe as a warning that they are serious about hunting down cheats and punishing players by taking away their games, platforms, accounts; all with no refunds.
According to Activision, they are currently “evolving” Call of Duty anti cheat capabilities after rushman360 revealed his ban. However, some speculate that he wasn’t caught because of an increase in the intensity and accuracy of their anti-cheating team but rather due to a malfunction with his cheats/programs.
Rushman360, who claimed there was no more cheating in Warzone last week, is caught again. He has posted multiple clips of dubious gameplay on Tiktok and two more claims about being banned from the game and Battle.net since then.
In his most recent Warzone video, posted on August 30th this week, the player and partner both acknowledge using aimbots. Details from a previous weekend show him activating cheats over two hours of gameplay in which you can clearly see them being used too.
At this point, it’s not clear whether rushman360 was actually hardware banned in the first place. If he were to replace all of his CPU components with new ones then he would be able to get back into the game by getting a new ID. After that, it’s simply a matter of signing up for another account and being careful so as not to bring attention to himself – even if they have access to their old accounts again!
There has been a lot of talk about cheating lately, especially since it really takes away from the fun. Activision is planning on implementing a better Call of Duty anticheat system for Warzone this year to hopefully minimize cheaters and improve player experience.
