Infinity Ward continues to strengthen computer security measures to keep Battle Royale cheaters at bay.
The fight against cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone continues unabated. The videogame sets records for the saga, it is already being played by more than 60 million users, and from Infinity Ward they are very clear; they are going to do everything in their power to block and prevent cheaters from being able to play in the Battle Royale. The latest news from the company is to add 2-step authentication for PCs now.
The news was given by the company on its own official Twitter account, which reads as follows: “Security update: we have initiated two-step SMS authentication for new Warzone users on PCs logging into the free-to-play to provide an additional layer of security for gamers”.
It’s not the first time there’s been news about cheaters at COD: Warzone. Infinity Ward has been dealing with them since the game’s launch in early March. There have been cases of console players disabling the crossover game to avoid encountering the PC cheaters. The company also doubled its resources for Warzone’s security teams last month and created a measure to bring suspected players together for the same games.
It was confirmed some time ago that there were already more than 70,000 banned Call of Duty: Warzone cheats, players using aimbots, wallhacks and similar tricks. The 2-step authentication via SMS may be able to slow down and control this kind of players who tarnish the Battle Royale shooter experience much better.
