- According to recent news, Warzone developers Activision and Infinity Ward aim to put cheaters into the same lobbies starting this week.
Call of Duty has been out for one and a half months, the game was successful, and the numbers are showing that with Activision announcing 50 million registered accounts in the game. Warzone has been an expected game and it is living up to its expectations. However, Warzone has a cheating problem. This problem is so severe that players from all over the world are rioting against the anti-cheat engine of Call of Duty Warzone. It is a problematic thing for the game and will result in a loss of player base. However, Infinity Ward recently announced a new way to reduce cheating in order to prevent it.
According to this news, Infinity Ward aims to put cheaters into lobbies with each other. Suspected cheaters will have to fight with each other and Activision will monitor the situation. This was asked by the community for some time now, and finally, they are adding this into the game.
However, there is a fine line here, suspected cheaters naming might mean some good players also might be sent to these lobbies and this might make the game insufferable for them. More info about it will come later from Infinity Ward developers. Another new feature is for players to report cheaters and get an in-game notification if the suspected cheater is banned.

Currently, cheating is an epidemic in the gaming world. When we are taking a look we can see that games that have been out for years such as Overwatch still have a cheating problem. These problems are unlikely to be solved in the near future as we need much better anti-cheat measures in place for multiplayer games. Cheaters today use not only aimbots, but they have also improved and there are hacks like speed hack, staying alive with 1 health hack, etc. This makes it complicated and hard to solve.
