Warzone’s anti-cheat is one of the most aspects of the game, and the community is getting quite impatient about the feature’s arrival.

Released back in 2020, Warzone has grown significantly over the months, consolidating its place as one of the most popular multiplayer shooters out there. Activision has been undertaking a unique approach with the titles and has merged its last title, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War with Warzone as well. In fact, the upcoming title, Vanguard will also be merged with these two games.

Recently, we received the Season 5 update in the game which made some significant changes to the titles. From the release of new guns to perks and a lot more, fans got more than what they could ask for.

However, much to the disappointment of fans, the anti-cheat feature, wasn’t released with the Season 5 update. It was later on revealed that the anti-cheat will be coming along with the new map, which is slated to release later this year.

Warzone’s Anti-Cheat Has Been Released According To Hacker Who Got Hardware Ban

While Raven Software has clarified that anti-cheat will be coming out later this year, it seems like they have significantly ramped up the existing cheating measures they have in place.

According to this TikTok video of a hacker, Raven Software is now issuing hardware bans to people cheating in Warzone. This means that if you cheat in the game, your PC will not be able to play the game again, even if you use a different account.

The hacker states that he has got bans issued on accounts that he hasn’t even played on, which pretty much confirms the fact that the hardware bans are indeed true. While it is less likely that this is the actual anti-cheat, it could be that the feature is being silently rolled out. This is quite an interesting measure by Raven Software, as it would prevent a lot of players from hacking in the game.
