Console players of Call of Duty: Warzone are opting out of Crossplay with PC users in an effort to avoid growing numbers of cheaters.

Earlier this week, game developer Infinity Ward confirmed it has issued over 70,000 bans worldwide as part of its “zero tolerance” policy against users employing cheat tactics.

“We’ve now issued over 70,000 bans worldwide to protect #Warzone from cheaters,” the studio said in a tweet. “We’re continuing to deploy dedicated security updates and work continues on improving in-game reporting. We’ll share more details soon. We are watching. We have zero tolerance for cheaters.”

However, as Eurogamer reports, players are still complaining about PC users who can automatically headshot, shoot through walls, and play without recoil. Over on Reddit, Warzone players have uploaded clips exposing a few of these cheats via Modern Warfare’s killcam and Warzone’s spectate mode.
