Anti-cheat is the bane of cheaters and hackers the world over, but thankfully, there are a few different strategies that you can use to get around it. Over the course of this guide, we’re going to explore some of the most effective ways to avoid getting caught by anti-cheat while you’re playing Warzone.
One of the most important things that you need to do so that you don’t end up getting caught by COD anti-cheat is having some restraint when you use your hacks. While it may be a shame not to use your most powerful hacks all the time, you may lose a whole lot more if your account ends up getting banned from Warzone.
To this end, you’ll want to avoid using cheats that will tip off other players that you’re hacking. This is because manual reports tend to get people banned more than the automated anti-cheat, especially if you’re using hacks that haven’t been detected and added to databases yet.
For example, if you have an aimbot that allows you to change the aim bone, you may not necessarily want to go for the headshot each time. If you get a headshot with every kill, then you may end up arousing suspicion because it’s almost impossible that every one of your kills is a headshot if you’re a legitimate player.
You may be a little dismissive when you’re installing your cheats because you’re in a rush to get started using them, but this isn’t necessarily a good idea. In fact, failing to follow the proper steps when you install your cheats may end up getting you banned by the automated anti-cheat system.
A common example is people failing to disable their anti-virus before they start installing their cheats. This can lead to a situation where your anti-virus quarantines or deletes a crucial file in the cheat package and this leads to you getting banned from the game because the anti-cheat detected your malfunctioning hacks.
Yet another thing that can get you caught when installing your cheats is failing to disable the secure boot feature in your computer’s BIOS before you start using your cheats. In many cheat packs, disabling this feature is what allows your hacks to circumvent the anti-cheat system in Warzone.
Failing to keep your cheats updated or still using a cheat a long time after it was released are common ways to get yourself caught. While we understand that it can be hard to part with a cheat pack after you spent your hard-earned money on it, you may also end up losing money if you get banned from Warzone and you had purchased COD Points previously.
The longer a cheat is out there, the more likely it is to get caught by anti-cheat because this gives anti-cheat developers a longer time to reverse engineer the cheat and add it to their databases. If you doubt an older cheat, it’s a safe bet to avoid it.
