PC cheaters are causing all sorts of trouble in Infinity Ward's free-to-play title Call of Duty: Warzone at the moment. Earlier this week, the developer revealed it had issued over 70,000 bans within the first month and stated how it had "zero tolerance" for these types of players.
According to Eurogamer, even more Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players are now asking Infinity Ward to remove the crossplay feature from the game altogether, rather than "deploy" dedicated security updates. Some console players have become so frustrated with the situation that they've gone to the extent of disabling crossplay.
Although Warzone stops players from finding a lobby when they disable the crossplay function within the in-game settings, Xbox players have apparently had some success cutting ties with PC users via the console's system settings. An Xbox One player over on the CODWarzone subreddit has shared step-by-step instructions. There's a catch, though:
there has to be enough people doing it for it to work. Once enough people have done this, you will be able to find lobbies of only xbox players. All games have to conform to your xbox live settings, which means you can supercede Activisions requirement of keeping crossplay enabled
As the FPS and Call of Duty YouTuber JackFrags noted in a recent video, this problem is likely to keep happening as long as PC players can continue making new accounts and crossplay is enabled.
