Raven Software subsequently announced a sweep of the game's servers and purged over 500,000 players found to be using hacks or cheats in May this year. Clearly, this was not enough because the infamous “God Mode” hack has returned and it’s even worse than it was before.

The current version of the hack has players literally shooting bullets through the target, dealing no damage whatsoever to the cheater. There is also no hitmarker, making the latest version of the hack a lot worse than before.
In the past, players could at least shoot the cheater using the “god mode” hack, although it didn’t really do any damage.
Warzone content and competitor for NRG, “IceManIsaac”, recently shared a video of his encounter with a hacker on Twitter.

Isaac later commented that “not even the assassination could kill him”. In a follow-up tweet, Isaac suggested that Raven Software introduce a temporary paywall in an attempt to deter curb cheating in Warzone, “until Warzone gets an active anti-cheat”.
In his tweet, he suggested that Raven Software charge players $59.99 to create a new account and require two-factor authentication to be enabled on all current accounts to prevent account theft.
He further added:

Yes, this may discourage new players from playing Warzone, but I think Raven should be more concerned with hemorrhaging their current base. Thoughts?
Other players have also voiced their concerns on Reddit, with one user commenting: “I have not dropped an extra dime on this game since the Cold War update to [Warzone], and I will not because I keep seeing how rampant the cheating is”.
Another user said: “Isn't this just an exploit though and not hacking? I remember there was an invincibility exploit a while ago as well, but they patched it. Either way, the state of the game is s*** and Activision doesn't care”.
These concerns are totally valid and the Warzone community appear to have had enough. It’s clear that Activision and Raven Software have a lot of work to do. Cheating is a sure way to kill a game and we're curious to see whether Activision will action a response.
The reality is that cheating has been a problem in Warzone for a long time now and it’s only a matter of time before players give up on the game altogether.
