More than 70 a thousand cheaters were banned in Call of Duty: Warzone and it seems that Infinity Ward wants to make it even more difficult the life of cheaters. In the past few days, the studio has implemented a new anti-fraud system that has been the subject of complaints in hacker forums.
The feature works as a two-step authentication via text message and forces new PC players to validate their login using a cell phone number. With this, the company hopes to avoid as much as possible the return of banned users to the game.
It is too early to say whether the measure had any effect, but there are interesting reports on the Internet. A Reddit user managed to capture some reports of cheaters on a cheat website.
Cheaters forums are now full of whining people that can’t play anymore. What a wonderful feeling. Thank you, IW. from CODWarzone
A hacker said he had his phone number banned and that now he will only be able to play again if he buys a new number.
Now I can never play Warzone again because the account that had my phone number is banned and you need to have a new phone number to play.
Another frustrated cheater revealed to have created several accounts in the game, but he didn’t even have a chance to join any game.
I did more than 20 Modern Warfare accounts. Half the accounts were banned before I was able to play
One of them even reported the need to buy another computer in order to play Warzone again.
The tricks work, but you’ll never be able to play again. You will have to buy a new computer if you want to play the game without being banned on leaving.
Call of Duty: Warzone is free and available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
