Call of Duty and a Commitment to Their Community


Activision and Call of Duty continue to step up their game with anti-cheat, name filtering, and account banning.




Since Activision’s last Call of Duty community update, their enforcement and anti-toxicity team has scrubbed the global player database to remove toxic users, resulting in:

  • 500,000 accounts banned to-date
  • 300,000 accounts renamed since launching their automated filtering systems
  • Added additional languages for in-game, text-based chat and name creation moderation

Call of Duty employs the use of new automated technology, alongside human moderation, to help filter text chat and account names from offensive language. In part, due to these efforts, they have seen a more than 55% drop in the number of offensive username and clan tags reports from their players in the month of August alone in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Today, Activision is launching a unified Code of Conduct for the Call of Duty franchise, which is supported by three core values to promote a positive gaming experience for all players:

  • Treat everyone with respect
  • Compete with integrity
  • Stay vigilant

As part of this initiative, players will be presented and asked to acknowledge the new Code of Conduct in-game beginning with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Open Beta.
