Activision Blizzard have put a stop to yet another cheat maker who peddled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone cheats, albeit the manner in which they did it is a bit creepy.
Now, this has been a somewhat protracted removal of a Call of Duty cheat maker, who received the company's first Cease and Desist letter back in May 2020.
At the time, GatorCheats complied and closed all sales to new customers who wanted to get ahead in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and/or Warzone. However, the support for existing customers apparently continued, which prompted Activision Blizzard to follow it up with another one.
Anyone who's found themselves on the wrong side of Activision Blizzard's copyright strikes knows they take no prisoners when their IP is involved, and this time it's no different. It's actually a bit creepy how he received the second letter, but we'll let you be the judge.
"In September 2020, Activision Blizzard’s attorneys had another Cease and Desist letter hand-delivered to me by who I assume was a PI, considering he knew my family members by name and made a point to showcase that he did. Also in September 2020, I received very clear communication in a follow up from Activision Blizzard’s attorneys communicating that they would litigate (file a lawsuit against me) if I didn’t comply with continuation of stopped sales as well as a complete stoppage of interaction with and updating of any products related to their client’s products."
On the brighter side, though, GatorCheats vowed to never create, test or update any products related to Activision Blizzard's IP, which means less trouble for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone players. They also urged their customers to not look for alternative places to download them, especially since those places are probably next.
