Infinity Ward a averti Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: WarzonThe cheats of a looming banwave in light of ongoing complaints, especially from console gamers whose experience has been marred by cross-play.

In a note on Twitter, the developer outlined their next steps and consequences for unauthorized activity as follows:

  1. Cheating will not be tolerated. Other banwaves are coming. If you receive a ban, it is for unauthorized manipulation of game data. Do not fall for unscrupulous services offering tips and modifications, there are fraudsters.

  2. Please do not use unauthorized third-party software to modify the hack. This includes tools like hex editors, which equip items you haven’t acquired properly. We define this as cheating and there is no place for it in our game. This is a banned offense and you may lose your account.
  3. Unauthorized third party software includes, but is not limited to aimbots, wallhacks, trainers, stat hacks, texture hacks, ranking hacks, injectors, hex editors, or any software used to modify deliberately game data or memory. Don’t do that. This may result in a ban.
  4. Avoid tutorials and services that offer ways to change your camouflage. Anything that suggests modifying your console or PC memory in order to acquire new gear, items, or loadouts beyond what is offered in the game is hacking and is considered cheating. We will apply accordingly, which may result in a ban.

Infinity Ward has been criticized several times for what many see as its mild warnings. The developer claims to have banned thousands of cheaters so far, but players say the anti-cheat measures have had little impact.

It remains to be seen whether or not the aforementioned steps will improve the multiplayer experience.
