Call of Duty Vanguard will carry forward bans from Warzone

Analyst for Call of Duty titles, CharlieIntel has come up with reports about the anti-cheat system. It looks like Activision does not wish to repeat the mistakes made with Warzone and other titles.

This free-to-play Battle Royale game has already provided them with all the information they could ever need about hacker activity. The studio has already caught thousands of players, and It seems like cheating in Warzone has just cost them not just their account but also the chance to play Vanguard.

Twitter Reacts to Warzone cheaters being banned from Vanguard

Naturally, fans flock to the thread to talk about the recent update and how things will work in the game. However, this fan pointed to one of the curious ways that hackers can circumvent the ban.

A cheat engine is used to hack into game files and tweak numbers within the title. This amounts to cheating and hacking, which merits a ban even if the app is open on your system. This fan tried to justify the use of the application, which puts him right on the radar of a potential hacker.
