20,000 Call of Duty: Warzone cheaters were banned on Monday null

Call of Duty: Warzone’s sixth Season has started today. Approximately 20,000 players will miss it. Vice reports that Activision has taken a strong stance against cheaters after it was discovered they were using a popular cheat. Twitch streamer Nick Wagner was banned from the game for using EngineOwning which is a subscription-based cheating service. Although it is not clear if other cheaters were caught in the banwave, EngineOwning now lists the cheat for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 as “detected.” This means that Infinity Ward, the developer, can see when it’s being used, and possibly take action.

EngineOwning was the same cheat streamer MrGolds used in August to cheat in Warzone. He was later banned from Twitch and lost his channel. It has been returned. Infinity Ward dropped the banhammer against roughly 70,000 Warzone cheaters back in April. In July, it warned that “more banwaves were coming” which was met with some ridicule from players who thought it was toothless. Activision’s August weight increased when it brought legal action against CxCheats, a cheat maker. It was forced to cease selling its software and apologize for any inconvenience caused. A rep for Activision confirmed Monday that the company had started issuing bans. EngineOwning, however, sounds like it’s not ready yet. AimBRoT, the site administrator, said that the developers would continue to “work towards detection.”
