Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has had its share of cheaters since launch, especially in the free to play Warzone mode. Fortunately, Infinity Ward is catching up to them, with 20,000 accounts banned for using paid cheat software ahead of the Season Six launch yesterday.
A well known cheat subscription service has a lot of unhappy customers this week, as their software is now listed as detected and many paid subscribers have found themselves banned, as confirmed by forum posts, via Vice.
This particular cheat maker has been around since 2014, creating hacks for a slew of Call of Duty games, Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront. These cheats often include ESP, aimbot, triggerbot and tools to make it more difficult to differentiate between legitimate shooting and bot-usage.
Activision has also begun taking legal action against cheat software creators. Following this latest ban wave, we may see more cheat services served with legal complaints.
KitGuru Says: These cheat makers usually find a workaround sooner rather than later. For now at least though, the beginning of Modern Warfare’s sixth season should be well protected. Have many of you encountered issues with cheaters in Modern Warfare recently?
