Overwatch 2’s developers are taking a strong stance against cheaters with a new, controversial measure.
Unfortunately, cheating is a common problem in competitive games and Overwatch 2 is no exception. Despite being a highly enjoyable game, Overwatch 2 has faced its fair share of cheating issues.
In response, the developers have imposed severe punishments on over 50,000 players who have been caught using third-party cheating tools. And now, they are taking it a step further by targeting not just the cheaters themselves, but also players who frequently play with them.
This new measure is aimed at reducing the prevalence of cheating, as some players pay cheaters to gain an unfair advantage over others in the game. By penalizing those who play with cheaters, the developers hope to create a fairer and more enjoyable gaming experience for all players.
The Overwatch 2 development team is taking a firm stance against cheating in the game. Players who play with cheaters for the first time will receive a warning, but if they continue to play with them, they will face consequences. The team will not tolerate cheating and will take action against those who participate in it.
In its efforts to combat cheating in Overwatch 2, Activision Blizzard has announced several new in-game controls and measures. The company is developing an automated moderation system for custom game modes, which will not only eliminate these modes but also hold their creators accountable.
Additionally, the Overwatch 2 developers are enhancing the tools for voice chat moderation to better protect streamers and punish cheaters more severely. The developers are also encouraging players to report any cheating they witness, to help ensure a fair and enjoyable gaming experience for all.
