This week kicked off the second round of testing for the upcoming shooter Call of Duty: Vanguard for all platforms. But, judging by the latest information that appeared on the Internet and social networks, not everyone will be able to play it, even with a pre-order.
On the scam Discord servers and forums, some players complain that they cannot play the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta due to a Warzone ban (karma?). The well-known insider CharlieIntel also confirmed that if a user has an account or hardware ID ban for a device (hardware ID) in the “battle royale”, then it makes no sense for him to enter the Vanguard beta, since he will not be able to play it.
If you are currently banned in Call of Duty: Warzone – including hardware or account banned – you are banned from playing Call of Duty: Vanguard.
For those in the cheats Discords/forums etc. asking why, I think it’s pretty obvious why. But thought I’d let you know.

If you can easily create a new one when blocking an account, then with a hardware ID it is not so simple, because such a ban is personally tied to the unique identifier of the PC hardware. However, the market already offers fake hardware IDs, or there is always an option to change the hardware, for example, by buying a new motherboard for a new ID.
@ATVIAssist I am shadow banned on vanguard because I am permanent banned on mw ans warzone, and I might get permanent Ban on it just like a guy that I know, so I just spent 60 euros to get shadow Banned on a fresh game, at least tell people that that’s the case, such a bullshit!!
