Several professional players are now abandoning Call of Duty: Warzone after the battle royale action game was invaded by cheaters, reports The Verge. Unauthorized tools such as automatic aiming aimbots, wallhacks that let you see through the walls and more have now become commonplace in the popular game.
Cheaters have also started broadcasting themselves live and making money from it, which has led to prominent Call of Duty: Warzone streamers now saying they will abandon the game. Last month, even the participants in a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, with as much as $ 250,000 in the prize pool, accused each other of cheating during the tournament.
Call of Duty: Warzone’s player base of several million users has expressed their frustration over the situation and many say they do not think either the publisher Activision or the developer Infinity Ward do enough for it. Activision has previously said that they have zero tolerance for cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone. On September 30, 2020, the publisher said that they have so far banned over 200,000 accounts for cheating in either Call of Duty: Warzone or Call of Duty Modern Warfare.
