Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the best battle royale games you can play at the moment but it can also be a pretty frustrating experience due to cheating/hacking. Luckily, you can turn off the cross-play on your Xbox and PS4.

In the last couple of days, Call of Duty: Warzone players have noticed a growing number of cheaters and hackers, who are ruining the fun for those who want to play the game fair and as intended. Of course, the majority of hackers and cheaters play on PC as cheating on consoles is extremely rare.

Luckily, you can avoid cheaters by simply turning off crossplay on your Xbox One or PS4 console. Yes, this will mean that you won't be able to play with Xbox One/PlayStation 4 players either but it is a small price to pay for fair gameplay experience. 

Here is how you can turn off cross-play on Xbox One:

  1. Go to your Xbox settings
  2. Scroll to Account and click on Privacy and Online Safety
  3. Click on Xbox Live Privacy
  4. Click on View Details and Customise
  5. Click on Communications and Multiplayer
  6. Change "You can play with people outside of Xbox Live" to block.

Here is how to turn it off on PS4:

  1. Go to in-game Options
  2. Find the Account tab
  3. Under Account tab find Crossplay and simply disable it

After this change, your lobbies will be filled with Xbox/PS4 players and you won't have to deal with PC hackers anymore.

However, this is not a perfect solution since sometimes, the game will ask you to enable crossplay in order to start matchmaking. Whether Activision and Infinity Ward fix this in the future, it remains to be seen, but for now, we will have to deal with it and hope that the issue does not occur that often.
