Call of Duty has been affected by hackers for a very long time now, especially within Warzone. However, with the latest updates to the anti-cheat system, it seems the developers have finally got some positive results.

With the announcement of Call of Duty: Vanguard and its integration into Warzone, players were also told that the game would receive a brand new PC anti-cheat system to fend off the hackers who have been causing a great deal of frustration in the community.

Although the developers had been fairly quiet about the hacking situation and issues in Warzone, it seems they have finally got some revenge on cheaters creating as many accounts as they wanted to bypass ban waves.

Over on Call of Duty’s Twitter, the fan-favorite franchise posted a video of a hacker explaining just how effective the recent upgrades to their anti-cheat system have been.

Originally, hackers have just been able to create new accounts after being banned, allowing them to continue cheating and ruining the game for others. However, a recent video by a player showed that he had been hardware banned and could not play on any accounts on his PC.

This is shown in the video posted by Call of Duty, where a hacker is showing how they are unable to create a new account and use it to cheat: “I’ve been cheating for a little bit, it’s been fun…but every one of my accounts are banned, every single one with even me playing it.”

Although this video was a troll, it is a great way of advertising their anti-cheat strategy to entice players like NICKMERCS back to the game. In recent weeks, many streamers and content creators had been switching over to Apex Legends due to the abundance of hackers in Warzone.

Luckily, it seems the developers have the situation more under control than they have in the past and will be looking to squash the hacking problem completely when the new PC anti-cheat system arrives during the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard cycle.

This is a great step for the developers at Call of Duty, as it adds another tool to the list when it comes to preventing cheaters and hackers in Warzone and Multiplayer.
