COD developers give stark warning to Warzone cheaters: "We are coming for you"
Call of Duty: Warzone has been plagued with cheaters ever since it released back in March 2020, with developers Infinity Ward and Raven Software trying to target them with massive banwaves, hitting over 500k suspended accounts as of May 2021. 

Despite their constant efforts, many content creators state that the game continues to be riddled with cheaters, like JGOD, who claims Warzone is still "unplayable," forcing some of the most influential streamers, such as NICKMERCS, switch to other battle royales like Apex Legends as a result. 

After finally announcing an anti-cheat system for Warzone, set to release in November alongside the brand-new Call of Duty: Vanguard, Raven Software has issued a warning to those that keep garnering an unfair advantage in the free-to-play battle royale.

Via social media, the Call of Duty Twitter account shared a quick ad for their upcoming efforts against cheaters, highlighting the new anti-cheat system coming at the end of the year.

The quick ad even features a real cheater who documented its gameplay via TikTok and their reaction to getting hardware banned. "You guys finally got your sh*t together."

Despite the developers' constant efforts, cheaters are sadly still rampant in Warzone, with hundreds of players complaining in the comments of the video about the urgency of the anti-cheat system. 

Even beyond cheating, other issues are currently hampering Warzone, with a "broken aim assist" putting controller players at an unfair advantage versus mouse and keyboard users, with JGOD pleading developers to rework it.

Still, there is plenty to enjoy in the battle against cheaters currently, with a new feature made specifically to name and shame them now live in Warzone.
