Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 6 kicked off this week and with it, around 20,000 players were banned for allegedly using cheats.
According to a Vice report, Activision has once again honed in on thousands of players who were found to be using an app which is designed to help people cheat during online games of Modern Warfare and Warzone.
The downloadable software is called EngineOwning and, for a small subscription price, players can use the software while playing online to give them an unfair advantage while playing against others.
It is currently unclear if Infinity Ward and Activision banned everyone using EngineOwning or if this also targetted people using other cheat engines.
Since the ban on Monday, the website for EngineOwning is now saying its Modern Warfare and Warzone cheats are "detected" which means the CoD devs know when people are using them and can crackdown on those who are.
Twitch streamer Nick Wagner was one of the people banned, with it taking place while he was in a game of Warzone.
According to Vice, an error message flashed on his screen while streaming saying his account was "permanently" banned.
On the EngineOwning website, the forums are flooded with complaints from cheaters reacting to the crackdown.
Someone wrote: “this hack was an amazing tool for getting to learn the game in and the maps. And after having stopped using it a little over a month ago, I woke up today to see this. I've noticed the bans going around, and the fact that the software was detected, but seriously?”
This isn't the first time Activision has taken a hard stance on cheaters.
Back in March, the company announced that it had banned 70,000 accounts saying "We are watching. We have zero-tolerance for cheaters"
If you're not a cheater, you'll currently be able to enjoy the launch of Warzone and Modern Warfare Season 6, which kicked off September 29.
This update added two new operators, a brand-new fast-travel system to Warzone and much more. For more details about CoD: Season 6, check out our breakdown of it here
