Warzone Bans Will Carry Over To Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer

Call of Duty: Warzone bans will transfer over to Call of Duty: Vanguard, ensuring that cheaters do not get a second chance in the new game.

Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.

Anyone banned from playing Call of Duty: Warzone won’t have the opportunity to enjoy Call of Duty: Vanguard when released this November. It appears there will be no second chances for those that have broken the rules in the past, seeing as Call of Duty: Vanguard is seemingly tightening up its security measures to help keep the game fair, fun, and safe upon launch. In a similar vein, Warzone’s developers have attempted to eliminate cheaters for a while, now.


Activision already confirmed it will implement a brand-new anti-cheat system in Vanguard when it launches later this year, something fans have been demanding for quite some time. After Modern Warfare allowed cross-play with PC users, some players noticed an influx of hackers infiltrating the series. The problem has only worsened over time as hackers realized Activision only banned their accounts; as a result, they could just make a new account and continue playing Warzone with little to no consequences. The bans have been more severe recently, though, with some reporting hardware bans – and it seems the slate won’t be wiped clean anytime soon.

Activision plans to release a new Warzone map alongside Call of Duty: Vanguard, ushering in a small  reboot for the battle royale game. That said, players who have been put on the publisher’s naughty list will not be allowed to participate in the fun. According to Call of Duty news site Charlie INTEL’s Twitter, players who were hardware or account banned will not be able to play Call of Duty: Vanguard or its new map. This is likely a result of players having to sign up for an Activision ID, which links accounts between each individual entry in the series.

This past May, Raven Software tweeted that over 500,000 Warzone players had been banned since the game launched in 2020. Although it’s a solid step forward to kick such players out of the game, the scale of this effort also shows how seemingly commonplace it is to cheat in the game. For one thing, Raven also explained that 30,000 of the half million banned accounts were dealt with in just a single day.

There haven’t been any significant details about this new anti-cheat system coming to Call of Duty: Vanguard, but one can only hope it reduces the amount of cheating happening in the first-person shooter. Cheating will never be completely eradicated, but ideally, this will be a way of making it more of an anomaly. Until then, cheating might be a preexisting expectation when loading a match in Call of Duty: Warzone.
