The Call of Duty: Warzone developers have once again swung the ban hammer vigorously, with over 90,000 accounts banned in a series of waves of bans.
It’s been over two years since Warzone was first released to the gaming world, and in that time it’s had more than enough problems with scammers and suspicious accounts.
With hackers taking over the battle royale at times, the developers have been in a constant firefight to keep from completely ruining things for others. This led to countless waves of bans and the introduction of anti-cheat software Ricochet – although some players are still skeptical of its abilities.
Well, in response to these skeptics, Raven Software has added another insane number of accounts to the game’s blacklist as they continue the cleanup.
After announcing some of the changes coming to Rebirth Island in the near future with the Reinforced map update, the developers also realized that they had rooted out some of the most suspicious accounts in Warzone.
“#TeamRICOCHET update: 90,000 accounts were removed in lockdown waves this week. Happy Friday,” they said, which immediately sparked some celebration among players.
“I’ve honestly noticed fewer scammers. Keep going!” said one impressed player. “Haven’t encountered a hacker in a while GG,” added another.

Of course, not everyone shared the excitement about the lockdown, with many saying that if they’re only locking 90,000 accounts a week, the anti-cheat needs “adjusting”.
Others questioned the developers how many “innocent” accounts were also caught in the crossfire, with some stating that they were hit by the ban wave despite being a low K/D player.
Players who believe they have been unfairly banned can submit a support ticket to the developers. However, it might be difficult for the legitimate scammers who have been banned to get back to the fight.
