Call of Duty: Warzone has banned over 60,000 accounts in one day for cheating on the video game.
Publisher Activision revealed the game had its own “internal anti-cheat software,” which it was now enhancing following demands from players.
Several high-profile streamers criticised the battle-royal game for being “saturated with hackers.”
Over 300,000 permanent bans had been issued since the game’s release last March.
Other popular games such as Fortnite and Fall Guys outsource their anti-cheat code.
Activision said in a blog post, “We are committed to delivering a fair and fun experience for all players. This is a dedicated focus for our security, enforcement and technology teams.”
It comes after UK-based Youtuber Vikkstar – whose real name is Vikram Singh Barn – announced he was quitting Warzone because of its cheating problem.
He told his seven million subscribers, “This needs to be fixed. Otherwise, it truly will be the death of the game.”
