Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters report hardware bans in the game

Over the past few weeks, many cheaters on Call of Duty: Warzone have reported bans to their account. Players can hack the popular Activision title in multiple ways. However, most of them require some hardware or IP spoofing to protect their devices from bans. This prevents the developers to suspend a device and players can then create new accounts on the same device to continue cheating.

But, recently, a viral TikTok showcased a cheater admitting to receiving hardware bans in Call of Duty: Warzone. The video included the cheater revealing his banned account, and later stating that he can’t create new accounts on his device to play on Verdansk. This shows to prove that the developers at Raven Software have hit a major target in their fight against hackers and cheaters.
