350,000 Toxic Call Of Duty Players Have Been Banned in The Last Year

A staggering amount of toxic Call of Duty players have been banned!

Toxicity has always been a problem in Call of Duty, all the way back to the Xbox 360 and PS3 era. Whether it’s harassment, hate speech, or toxic behavior, Activision is strongly against it and is taking more measures to combat it as time goes on.

Now, this problem could finally be under control, thanks to Activision’s new anti-toxicity measures.


Toxic Call of Duty Warzone and Cold War Players Banned

Activision has significantly stepped up its anti-toxicity efforts over all of the current Call of Duty games in the past 12 months. This effort against toxic players includes Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty Mobile.

To remove toxic players, Activision has:

  • Banned over 350,000 accounts for racist names or toxic behavior based on player-submitted reports and an extensive review of our player-name database
  • Deployed new in-game filters to catch potentially offensive user names, clan tags, or profiles
  • Implemented new technology to filter potentially offensive text chat
  • Implemented filters across 11 languages

Activision seems fully committed to improving the experience of players as over half a million cheaters have been banned from Warzone alone. These anti-toxicity measures will also go a long way to improving the experience of players worldwide too.

Anti-Toxicity Improvements

However, Activision also realises that there is still plenty of work to do to remove toxic players from Call of Duty.

“Our goal is to give players the tools needed to manage their own gameplay experience, combined with an enforcement approach that addresses hate speech, racism, sexism and harassment.”

Activision says that it will continue to increase its efforts in these areas:

  • More resources to support detection and enforcement
  • Additional monitoring and backend technology
  • Scrubbing databases to bring systems up to current standards
  • Consistent and fair review of enforcement policies
  • Increased communication with the community

Despite Activision’s efforts against toxic Call of Duty players, cheating is still a huge problem in Warzone Season 3 Reloaded.

Do you think Activiison has done enough to combat toxicity or is there still a lot more work to be done?

Meanwhile, the biggest problem with Warzone at the moment isn’t to do with the players. Verdansk ’84’s terrible lighting is still causing major visibility problems. Luckily, Raven Software will at least fix the blinding lens flare in Warzone.

Finally, Warzone and Cold War Season 4 is almost here.
