It’s no secret that Warzone has got a big hacker problem going on right now, and while Activision and Raven Software are enforcing huge ban waves it just doesn’t seem to be enough. So, CouRageJD decided to take matters into his own hands and get two Warzone hackers banned himself.

The moment the hackers were banned was caught live on CouRageJD’s stream and it was incredibly satisfying to watch. But as satisfying as the situation was, does Activision really have the hacking issue under control in Warzone?

Call of Duty Warzone Hackers

Unfortunately, hackers aren’t just an issue in Warzone. Every Multiplayer game since the dawn of the internet has been riddled with people ruining the fun for others.

But with Warzone currently being one of the biggest games on the planet, the hacking issue is a little bit all over the place.

The issue started to get out of hand at the beginning of 2021 and the Call of Duty team was forced to address the issue following streamers quitting the game because of it. On the 2nd of February, 2021, Call of Duty released an update regarding their anti-cheat program, and what measures they would be taking to eliminate hackers in Warzone.

You can read the full post on the Call of Duty Website, where the developers state they have banned over 300,000 accounts since launch (As of February 2021).

Raven Software regularly update players via their Twitter account regarding ban waves, with the last one being on April 12 and saw 30,000 more accounts receive a ban.

However, a lot of the replies on their Twitter account claim to have been banned unlawfully. So are Raven and Activision really doing enough to stop hackers?

Players continue to call for a proper anti-cheat system to be put in place to stop hackers from simply creating new accounts once they are banned. Doing so would mean Raven wouldn’t be required to ban individual accounts, as an anti-cheat system would simply make it much more difficult for players to hack in the first place.

Since the release of Verdansk ’84, Activision has had a whole other problem on their hands. Players are repeatedly finding various map exploits around Verdansk and although the developers have been actively patching the various exploits, more seem to occur.

The exploits allow players to get under the map and go undetected at points of interest such as Train Station, Stadium, and more. Group both of these issues with the constantly recurring stim-glitch and you’ve just got one big mess.

CouRageJD Gets Hackers Banned Live On Stream

If Activision and Raven Software aren’t going to take the Warzone hacking issue seriously, you can bet everyone’s favourite Call of Duty streamer CouRageJD will!

During a live stream on May 13, CouRage had teamed up with friends and fellow streamers TimTheTatman and Cloakzy to get some Warzone dubs.

The trio was well on their way to getting a victory when they were taken out rather suspiciously whilst in a battle at Airport. CouRage took it upon himself to send a clip to Raven Software and Activision on Twitter immediately after, and what followed was truly magical.

Check out CouRageJD’s perspective below to see the hackers get banned live on stream.

As to be expected, the Warzone streamers were ecstatic with the outcome and CouRageJD even took to Twitter hours later to express his happiness with the ban.
