With over 475,00 permaban accounts in Call of Duty: Warzone®, they said that the ‘large banwave’ on Sunday (11th April) was their 7th high-volume set of ban since Feb 2021. In addition, they have also marked their eyes on cheat providers and re-sellers in commercial markets which led to 45,000 fraudulent and black market accounts used by repeat offenders.
They also said, “Some have asked if we issue hardware bans. We do issue hardware bans against repeat, or serial, cheaters. This is an important part of our effort to combat repeat offenders.”

Developers also said:
‘’ Removing cheaters and taking away their ability to move to alternate accounts is a key focus for the security teams.
As we’ve mentioned previously, we’ve increased our efforts in several key areas:
- Utilizing 2-factor authentication to make it harder to access new accounts simply to cheat
- Ramping-up additional resources to support our security and enforcement teams
- Increased frequency of high-volume banwaves in addition to our daily banning of repeat offending accounts
- Improving regular communications and updates ‘’
