Warzone Bans Apparently Carried Over to Call of Duty Vanguard

Reports have surfaced that Call of Duty Warzone cheaters who have had their accounts or hardware banned are also banned from the upcoming Call of Duty Vanguard.

Screenshots circulating on various forums and social media purportedly show that players who are banned from Warzone receive a “connection failed” message when trying to log into Vanguard‘s beta. “You have been permanently banned from playing on the Call of Duty Vanguard servers,” the message continues.

The reliable folks over at Charlie INTEL independently verified this, and confirmed the reports.

Good one, Sledgehammer Games!

While this little anti-cheat measure isn’t entirely foolproof, it does make creating new accounts significantly harder because it bans hardware tied to the offending account.

Activision has not yet commented on this report or confirmed anything officially, and it’s this very silence that’s evidently making banned players angry.

“I am shadow banned on Vanguard because I am permanent banned on Modern Warfare and Warzone,” complained Twitter user owais. “And I might get permanent ban on it just like a guy that I know, so I just spent 60 Euros to get shadow banned on a fresh game, at least tell people that that’s the case, such a bullshit!!”

Im banned on warzone but have no issue on getting on Vanguard


I'm surprised they don't want the extra money seeing how stingy they get. I guess activision does care to some extent about the impact it has on their titles.


Seems like they want to link all these games together in some way shape or form. It's interesting. I've never seen this before.
