It’s a somewhat familiar story, with a similar issue during Battlefield 2042’s launch in 2021. Unfortunately, it seems like the issue has still not been resolved in Battlefield 2042, but here’s hoping a change can be made for Call of Duty.

According to emails from Activision, most of these bans have been because of users using “unauthorized software” and “manipulation of game data.”

It’s first worth noting that nobody, including myself, can determine if someone is cheating or not by looking from the outside in. However, the vast number of replies I’ve received suggest something wrong with Call of Duty’s current anti-cheat system.
