Infinity Ward has recently addressed the increasingly annoying cheater situations happening in Call of Duty Warzone.
If you play cross-platform play on Warzone, chances are you’ve encountered a hacker or two. On PC, chances are you see a hacker in every other game you play. It’s a growing problem for the community, and Infinity Ward has taken notice.
Earlier this week, Infinity Ward took some measures to prevent the cheating problem from getting any worse. Players in Warzone and Modern Warfare who report cheaters now get an in-game confirmation when players are banned. Players can be confident that their actions of reporting cheaters are actually making a difference now.
Other anti-cheat measures include additional security updates to the game. Infinity Ward is also increasing resources across backend tech, studio, and enforcement teams so they can focus more on catching and dealing with cheaters.
The best update, in my opinion, comes in the form of a matchmaking change that groups suspected cheaters together in the same game. This basically means there are now lobbies full of cheaters who can battle it out and see who has the best cheats.
Some other changes coming soon are a ‘report-a-player’ functionality on killcam and spectate modes. This makes it easier to report players from various points in the game.
Overall, it’s great to see Infinity Ward being proactive against the cheaters. The exclusive cheater matchmaking lobbies is an innovative idea, and it will be interesting to see how it pans out.
