Who Is Shooting Me?
Activision has just announced a new anti-cheat measure that will turn regular players invisible and undetectable to all cheaters in both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone.
The new technique is known as “Cloaking” and will only affect those who the game detects as cheaters while regular players will continue to see their cheating enemies normally.
“With Cloaking, players that are detected to be cheating can find themselves unable to see opposing players in the game world. Characters, bullets, even sound from legitimate players will be undetectable to cheaters. Legitimate players, however, can see cheaters impacted by cloaking (generally, they’ll be the players you see spinning in circles hollering, “Who is shooting me?!”) and can dole out in-game punishment.” said Activision in a recent blog.
Call of Duty has now effectively banned 54,000 accounts as a punishment for cheating in addition to the previous 90,000 accounts in another ban wave. They have also clarified that these ban waves are consistently occurring on a daily basis.
Finally, Activision acknowledges that new cheating methods are developing to circumvent the current anti-cheating measures, and it encourages players to actively use the in-game reporting tools in order to ensure that the fight continues against unfair play.
In related news, Call of Duty: Warzone has finally released Pacific Season 3 of the game featuring Operation Monarch, a time-limited event that features King Kong and Godzilla. It also introduces several new points of interest as well as two new Vanguard weapons.
Call of Duty: Warzone is now available for free download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as PC.
