Call of Duty games has had a rampant amount of cheaters surface in recent years, utilizing online hacks and aimbots to have a competitive edge over players. However, publisher Activision has threatened legal action against cheat selling site CxCheats, resulting in the site removing all Call of Duty related cheats and issuing a statement via Discord. The site announced it would cease the development of CoD cheats following the lawsuit from Activision, and the website is now seemingly inaccessible.
However, a screenshot of the statement has been posted to Reddit:
Although the site is locked, Eurogamer reports that Apex Legends and PUBG cheats are still being sold on the site. This is another move from Activision and developer Infinity Ward to shut down cheaters in its Call of Duty titles, especially Warzone. 50,000 cheaters were previously banned from the battle royale and Infinity Ward has set up lobbies to set cheaters against each other during the matchup. Meanwhile, in Modern Warfare, console players are ditching cross-play to avoid PC players for fear of cheating.
