Call of Duty game developer Activision has banned over 50,000 cheaters since the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone on March 10. The banned players include those who used programs to let them shoot impossible shots, known as aimbots and wall hacks that can let some shoot through walls. “We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities. This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly,” the company said in a statement.

Call of Duty: Warzone has hit 30 million players milestone within 10 days of the game’s release across various platforms. The game announced the arrival of a solo mode to its battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone. It is available for free on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The free-to-play and cross platform experience, Call of Duty: Warzone, is available to download for free.
