Following the recent news that CxCheats was issued a cease and desist by the legal team at Activision Blizzard, yet another cheat distributor for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone has been taken down.
These efforts are the latest in an on-going battle against the somewhat rampant cheating in Warzone, which is causing problems for a lot of players during matches. The situation has made headlines multiple times since the launch of the battle royale mode.
Activision Blizzard has significant legal resources at their disposal and curbing the use of hacks in Warzone is a primary concern. Especially since things were so bad that at one point that major streamers - a key marketing resource - were having difficulty playing at all.
When one of the biggest game corporations sends the suits, most cheat makers know it is time to pack. CxCheats closed up extremely fast after the cease and desist, but this latest shut down took a bit longer.

GatorCheats, creator and seller of hacks used in Modern Warfare and Warzone, shared the course of events that led to the cessation of "products" related to the games being sold on Discord. Activision first contacted them in May to stop selling Call of Duty hacks, which they chose to ignore. This month, a second letter was sent, and GatorCheats was contacted by private investigators as well, making it clear that the company was aware of GatorCheats' real identity.
Following that, sales of cheats and hacks for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone by GatorCheats have stopped entirely, as well as updates for these programs.
With any luck, Activision will clear out any additional cheat distributors in the near future.
