Developer Raven Software confirmed they have successfully banned more than 30,000 Call of Duty Warzone accounts in the latest ban wave. This ban wave comes in less than a week since more than 15,000 accounts got purged.

Call of Duty Warzone is perhaps in its worst state since launching thanks to cheaters and other issues and players have been pretty vocal about that over the last couple of weeks. Many point out Activision's incompetence to solve the cheating issue, which is perhaps one of the biggest problems in the game right now. And the worst thing about it? The cross-play allows cheaters to play against PlayStation and Xbox players.

Last week, one of the developers of Call of Duty Warzone - Raven Software - announced that they have banned more than 15,000 accounts that have been proved to be cheating in the game. Today, Raven have confirmed that another ban wave has been successfully completed over the last week, purging more than 30,000 accounts. So that's 45,000 cheaters gone from Warzone in less than a week.

And while this is good news it's far from an ideal solution. Since Warzone is a free game, cheaters can simply register a new account and do the cheating again until banned. Activision should really start exploring stronger anti-cheat systems instead of mass banning.

All in all, we really hope that the cheating issue will soon be purged from otherwise a fantastic battle royale game that is Call of Duty Warzone.
