Activision is taking extra steps to prevent scammers by shutting down another top-selling Warzone cheat before their anti-cheating system RICOCHET goes live.
Cheaters have been running rampant in Warzone lobbies since the early days of the game with cheap hacks and even free trials offered by various cheat vendors.
However, the end of the cheating crisis that led many to fall in love with Warzone is potentially not far off.
While Activision is making its final preparations to introduce next year’s Warzone content, which includes the release of a brand new map and the launch of RICOCHET anti-cheat, they have taken down another top-cheating seller.
On November 19, the moderators on the popular Golden Gun Discord server – known for its cheat sales – revealed that Activision had contacted them.
Activision claims that Golden Gun is in violation of their ToS. As a result, cheat vendors will no longer support and develop cheat codes for any Activision game in the future.
“Activision has contacted Golden Gun Admins and has claimed that Golden Gun is in breach of their Terms of Service. As a result, Golden Gun will no longer support any Activision product and will stop all development,” the cheat sellers revealed.
The announcement also added that the reasoning has nothing to do with the upcoming release of RICOCHET anti-cheat and it is only a legal issue. “For those who are wondering, this has nothing to do with Activision’s anti-cheating and is entirely a legal matter.”
From the Golden Gun announcement, Activision will apparently seek to take legal action against them, similar to what they have done with other sellers.
In October, the French site X22 received a legal notice from Activision, which effectively forced them to stop operating.
The Golden Gun website is now already inactive and displays the message: “Golden Gun has discontinued all development and operation due to ongoing legal issues with Activision.”
