Suspected cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone to be matched together in cheater-only lobbies

By Sean Carey,
Infinity Ward recently banned over 70,000 thousand cheaters from Call of Duty: Warzone. However, players are still coming across various gamers who are using aimbots and other cheating software. Now the developer has announced additional measures that should further dampen the cheating problem.


Starting this week, players who report suspected cheaters in both Warzone and Modern Warfare will now receive a notification in-game confirming when a cheating player has been banned. Infinity Ward also says additional security updates have been pushed live and that resources for teams in charge of finding cheaters have been increased.

Another notable change that Infinity Ward has made is that suspected cheaters have now been removed from the normal matchmaking pool and will instead be matched with other players who are believed to be cheating.

Reporting players in Warzone is a little long-winded. You have to go to your Recent Players list, find the cheater and report them there. Infinity Ward says a way to report players via the killcam and spectator mode is in development and coming soon.

In other Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone news, a playlist update rolled out last night that brought with it new game modes and the new Operator, Ronin.
