Warzone just banned 90,000 cheaters, but players are demanding more banwaves

The Call of Duty: Warzone developers have once again waved the banhammer in a big way, with more than 90,000 accounts banned in a series of waves of bans.

It’s been over two years since Warzone was first released to the game world, and in that time it has had more than a fair share of issues with cheaters and suspicious accounts.

Because hackers have sometimes taken over the battle royale, the developers are constantly in a firefight to avoid completely ruining things for others. That has led to numerous ban waves and the introduction of the Ricochet anti-cheat software – although some players are still skeptical of its capabilities.

Well, in response to those skeptics, Raven Software has added another insane amount of accounts to its banned games list as they continue to clean up.

RICOCHET was first introduced in December, but players have had their doubts about whether it works.

After announcing some of the changes coming to Rebirth Island in the near future with the “Reinforced” map update, the developers also noted that they had wiped out some of the most suspicious accounts in Warzone.

“#TeamRICOCHET update: 90,000 accounts were deleted in waves this week. Happy Friday,” they said, immediately sparking some celebrations from players.

“I noticed less cheaters tbh. Keep it up!” said one impressed player. “I haven’t come across a hacker in a while, GG,” added another.

Of course, not everyone shared the excitement of the ban wave, with many arguing that the anti-cheat should be “tuned” if they only ban 90,000 accounts per week.

Others questioned the developers how many “innocent” accounts were also in the crossfire, with some claiming they were banned despite being a low K/D player.

Players who believe they have a plea for being unfairly banned can submit a support ticket to the developers. But for those legitimate cheaters who have been banned, it can be hard to get back to the fight.
