Odds are that some of you have encountered a toxic player online, but it seems that one of the biggest names in gaming is addressing this issue. Half a million users have now been banned from Call of Duty for toxic behavior. The latest Call of Duty blog sheds more insight on the studio’s dedication to combating the toxicity within its community’s ranks in the hopes of creating a more positive online space for players.
New Call of Duty Code of Conduct Leads the Way of New Ban Wave
The new Call of Duty Code of Conduct invokes the ethical code for treating fellow players with respect and integrity, whilst outlining the game reporting procedure and other measures for security should this conduct be broken. New automated technology has also been employed, which filters text chat and account names for offensive language. As a result, more than 500,000 accounts have been banned.

The studio is actively encouraging its community to make use of these tools to remove offenders from the game and hopefully put an end to toxic behavior. The Call of Duty team has also expressed that players need to acknowledge this code of conduct if they want to participate in the open beta for Modern Warfare II, showcasing that Call of Duty‘s developing studios will be taking online misconduct very seriously for all future titles.
