Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare are giving cheaters a taste of their own medicine with its latest update. Infinity Ward has announced that beginning this week, suspected cheaters will be forced to play against each other in a separate match that will pit them against each other. The welcome move comes less than two weeks after the developer banned 70,000 players worldwide.
Furthermore, players who report the suspected cheaters will now be notified in-game when the person they reported gets banned from the game. They are also working on a report-a-player functionality to make it easier for players to report suspected cheating in the game. Infinity Ward also shared the full dedicated update in a tweet, which garnered support and suggestions about crossplay from followers.
Infinity Ward’s move proves that it is serious about maintaining a level playing field for its players. Warzone has zero tolerance for cheaters. We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities. This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly,” the company assured in its April 14 announcement.
