Multiplayer games are an easy target for cheating players. Video game developers have a difficult time trying to prevent this situation from happening, and to be honest; it looks like an impossible job. However, there are few solutions that they can count on when it comes to players breaking the rules. Developers have come out with anti-cheating solutions that work in most of the cases.
But, when it comes to free-to-play games, players get banned for cheating; however, they can just create a new account and continue with their vendetta. Infinity Ward, the developer of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone video game, has adopted a new solution against the cheating players.
The solutions are actually one of the fans’ favorite, and it makes the gameplay a little harder for people who like to take shortcuts. The solution has been introduced this week in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone, the standalone free-to-play battle royale video game.
A new anti-cheating solution in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone
All cheating player suspects will be placed into the same match, which means they will fight against other script users. They won’t even know what hit them.
This solution gives the anti-cheat developers enough time to analyze the situation and come up with a defenses move to combat the scripts being used. That also means that creating a new account won’t be that easy. The process of creating a new account will be slowed down because they won’t know they are playing against other script users.
If Modern Warfare and Warzone users suspect a player of cheating and files a report against them to the video game developers, they will receive a confirmation via the game. That if they were right about the possible cheating player. Infinity Ward is serious about this topic and made some upgrades in terms of the backend tech, studio, and resources, as well as the security system. The company will create a way to discover the cheating players via kill cams and while spectating.
The current situation looks dreadful for the Warzone game, with over 50,000 accounts banned for cheating, which is only by April 1. The number of cheating players raised up to 70,000 by April 14. It’s time for them to get played.
