Activision takes legal action against Modern Warfare and Warzone cheat providers

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a cheating problem, and Activision is finally tackling the problem head-on.
Activision takes legal action against Modern Warfare and Warzone cheat providers
Call of Duty fans will be pleased to hear that Activision is actively tackling the cheating problems that are plaguing Modern Warfare and Warzone, as they have filed a lawsuit against CXCheats, one of the game's most well-known cheat developers, effectively forcing them to shut down their Call of Duty operations.

The cheat providers, which both developed and sold wallhacks or aimbots to their customers, announced via their Discord the complete shut down of all services related to Call of Duty titles effective immediately.

"As a result of our lawsuit with Activision, we have agreed to cease development and support for all Call of Duty related products or services sold through the site. These products will not be returning to CXCheats in any form. You also should be aware that using third-party tools in Call of Duty may result in the suspension or banning of your account by Activision Publishing, Inc. or the game’s developers. We apologize for any pain we’ve caused to players of Call of Duty."

Hackers have sadly become a common sight in both Modern Warfare and Warzone since they were released, with fan outrage at an all-time high in the past few months. There have even been instances of Twitch streamers being caught cheating while broadcasting, resulting in the termination of their channels.

While PS4 players can avoid the majority of PC hackers simply by disabling cross-play, Xbox One users aren't as lucky, as they have no option to exclusively play with other console players.

If this is the first of many cheat providers Activision is looking to take down, the days of feeling like every other player in Warzone is hacking could soon be over.
