Famous FPS game Call of Duty Publisher, Activision filed a lawsuit against German-based EngineOwning, huge merchandiser of illegal cheats for Call of Duty: Warzone released back in 2020, as summarized in the tweet from CharlieIntel famous data miners of Call of Duty series, Activision is pursuing to end “unlawful conduct ” in their gaming universe, and the company wants to prevent the sale of “suspicious illegal codes and cheats created to allow players of the game to get the inequitable competitive upper hand in the COD: Warzone. 

EngineOwning’s cheats, as per its website, include auto-firing, auto-aiming, and hinting at another player’s location to hunt promptly, for a price varying from €4.49 (Rs.377)(three-day access) to €139.99(Rs.11,777) (90 days). Howbeit the illegal cheats and the lawsuit isn’t summing up at destruction through the call of Duty games. Activision is also reportedly suing the German company EngineOwning to develop the cheat codes for overwatch and some other Activision-published games.

In the Activision lawsuit document summary,  Activision contends that the cheats have created it to “agonize huge and irremediable damages to its goodwill reputation and to lose substantial revenue.” An official tweet from CharlieIntel says that  “The lawsuit also confirms Activision has banned “hundreds of thousands” of players in 2021 and that “tens of thousands” of players have used EngineOwning,” meaning that Activision has been forced to eliminate players who are trying to enter the land with disallowed cheats.

Activision declared last year that the company had issued over 500,000 Warzone permabans since the game launched in March 2020. To avoid such gratuitous occurrence, the publisher rolled out COD Warzone’s anti-cheat kernel-level driver globally last month, aiming to capture all the impostors and eliminate them from the Battle Royale field. The driver will be accessible for Call of Duty: Vanguard players following the out-turn of Warzones.
