Call Of Duty: Warzone Console Players Turning off Crossplay to Avoid PC Cheaters

Call of Duty has a major problem with cheating and console players are suffering too with their cross-play functionality.According to Infinity Ward, the developers behind Call of Duty, at least 70,000 people have already been banned from Call of Duty: Warzone for using aimbots and other cheating tools.

There will always be cheaters in multiplayer games online but it’s never really been a problem on the PlayStation because of the lengths you’d have to go to enabling cheating software.Standard Modern Warfare multiplayer of course has a problem with this, but even the battle royale mode for the online Call of Duty game is suffering.Infinity Ward has acknowledged the cheating and said: “We are watching. We have zero-tolerance for cheaters”.

Cheating has been a real issue in Modern Warfare and Warzone. The latter has been an especially difficult game to police for developer Infinity Ward because it’s free-to-play and those who insist on playing deviously have much less to lose if they’re caught and banned.

As Eurogamer observes, on the PS4, it took a few minutes to get into a Warzone lobby with crossplay disabled, compared to about 30 seconds with the feature turned on. That’s quite a difference, and in fact, on the PlayStation, if matchmaking is slow the game will actually prompt you to turn on crossplay to more speedily find a lobby.

Since crossplay means console players will be more likely to run into this kind of player, the only viable option for many seems to be to disable the feature until a more reliable solution comes along. Clearly this isn’t something the vast majority of players want to have to do, as being able to play with mates who might not own the same platform as you is kind of the whole point of crossplay.
