Call of Duty: Warzone developer Infinity Ward is taking further steps to help stamp out cheaters in the popular battle royale game, at least on PC. The studio has released a new “security update” that adds mandatory two-factor authentication. Without using two-factor or “two-step” verification, you will not be able to log in to your account anymore, and it should stop cheaters from being able to get into others’ accounts so easily, as well.
According to Infinity Ward, this is “another step to provide an additional layer of security for players.” Note that 2FA is only required for people who are playing the free-to-play client, not those who are accessing Warzone through Modern Warfare. This new 2FA update only applies to PC.
With more than 60 million players, there were always going to be some bad eggs in Warzone. For what it’s worth, other popular battle royale games such as PUBG and Fortnite have also acknowledged cheating issues.
Warzone players who have been identified as cheaters are being placed in matches together as a way to combat the issue. Looking ahead, Infinity Ward is planning to add a player-reporting feature to the Warzone kill cams and spectator modes. Not including Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward has already banned more than 70,000 cheaters from Warzone.
