Since its release, Activision has banned over 475,000 Call of Duty: Warzone accounts due to cheating. This massive figure was revealed today during their anti-cheat progress report. This total comes right as the studio issued another big ban wave just yesterday, their seventh largest ban wave since February.

Activision also notes that their security and enforcement teams issue daily bans to individual offenses or repeat offenders. The same team seems to be looking at the cheat makers themselves, specifically cheat providers and resellers. They say that they recently banned 45,000 "fraudulent, black market accounts used by repeat offenders."

Removing cheaters and taking away their ability to move to alternate accounts is a key focus for the security teams.

As we’ve mentioned previously, we’ve increased our efforts in several key areas:
  • Utilizing 2-factor authentication to make it harder to access new accounts simply to cheat
  • Ramping-up additional resources to support our security and enforcement teams
  • Increased frequency of high-volume banwaves in addition to our daily banning of repeat offending accounts
  • Improving regular communications and updates
