The game has been out for just over a month, releasing as a free-to-play, standalone Battle Royale title on 10th March 2020. With the third season releasing last week, Infinity Ward has taken a strong stance against Warzone cheaters.

We've now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters. We're continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We'll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.— Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) April 13, 2020
It is great to see Infinity Ward stepping up, and banning Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters. These cheaters can primarily be found on PC, where it is obviously the easiest to cheat.
With a no-nonsense, zero-tolerance stance on Warzone cheaters, things can only get better. However, since the game is free-to-play, cheaters can easily create new accounts, and keep on cheating.
Infinity Ward has a big task ahead of them, and as the developer explains, they are continuing to deploy security updates. Call of Duty: Warzone players can, of course, help out by reporting those they suspect of cheating.
It will be interesting to see which other methods Infinity Ward deploy to combat cheaters in Warzone, and how the developer will overcome the hurdle of cheaters simply creating new accounts, over and over again.
It is, however, a good sign that the developer is attempting to clean up the game.
