Why do I have an Activision ban?

Usually, the reasons for suspending an account are individual for each user. But often you can get a ban for violating the main rules:

  • You used third-party software while playing the game. So the system decides that you want to cheat and will block you.
  • If you're trying to spoof using Spoofing, you're breaking community rules.
  • If you commit minor infractions very often or repeat the same infraction several times after warnings, the account can be suspended.
  • If you find bugs within the program and use them to your advantage, you may get banned.
  • If you use griefing and other players catch you in it, you can't avoid the ban.
