Call of Duty: Warzone has a huge cheating problem, enough to force popular streamers to quit gaming altogether. Activision has been trying to tackle the problem since last year by en masse banning tens of thousands of cheating gamers – in fact, the video game giant just banned 60,000 accounts for confirmed cases of cheating software use in Warzone. As Vice noted, the bans came a day after popular CoD streamer Vikkstar123 announced he had quit the game because of blatant live hacks with no repercussions.
That’s why I left Warzone: https://t.co/7A18b1Uapp
The fact that players can broadcast themselves live blatantly hacking without any repercussions strikes me. This guy is 2nd prestige and broadcasts hours of hacking.

While Activision did not specify the cheat software used by banned players, sources who spoke to Vice said the wave was targeting EngineOwning customers. The subscription based cheat program offers cheats and hacks not only for CoD games, but also for Battlefield, Fall of the Titans and Star wars securities. Activision also targeted EngineOwning customers when it banned 20,000 accounts in September of last year, and this cycle would have eliminated all users from the game’s program. In April 2020, shortly after the game’s release Battle Royale video, the company also kicked out 70,000 accounts.
