How To Bypass HWID Ban in any Game – Complete Guide 2022

HWID (hardware) bans are the hardest to bypass since, apart from your IP address being banned, there are also one or multiple hardware parts with unique identifiers that are banned. Game companies are looking for better and more effective ways to punish cheaters in-game that’s why the last few years, a lot of them have started banning players based on their hardware serial numbers(HWID BAN) and IP/MAC addresses.

Depending on the game you got banned from, the hardware parts that got blacklisted may be different. Most of the time, one, few, or a combination of the following will be banned:

  • Mac address 
  • Motherboard
  • HDD 
  • SSD
  • IP Adress
  • Network Card / MAC
  • Router
  • Other HWID keys on your PC

Which games do HWID Ban players?

Some of the most famous online games that HWID bans users are the following:

  • Fortnite
  • Warzone
  • Valorant
  • League of Legends
  • Roblox 
  • Rust
  • PubG
  • CS: GO
  • Escape from Tarkov
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • more…

While reading this information, it might seem unlikely to you to bypass the HWID bans, but the truth is it’s not that hard to do so. Below you’ll find a step-by-step guide on exactly what you have to do to bypass the HWID ban on any game.

To bypass the HWID ban on any game with 100% success, you should do every step of this guide in the same exact order as shown below and not skip a single one. If you skip or change the order, you will most likely get banned instantly again!!

How To Bypass HWID Ban in any Game - Complete Guide 2022

I’ve collected into a folder all the files and tools you will need to change your HWIDs, IP / MAC addresses, and bypass the HWID ban on any game.

HWID Bypass Files



The files were updated in September 2022 to keep up with the latest Updates.


Receive the files on your E-mail

(You will also receive emails when there is a new patch/update)

Download the files, extract them, and move the HWID Bypass folder to your C: drive.

Step 1 – Uninstall the game and clear all traces.

The first and most important thing you’ll have to do is to completely uninstall the game and the launcher and make sure to clear every single file related to them. We want to ensure that no files are left on the PC that could link you back to the HWID ban.

Navigate to the Control Panel and choose the option Programs.

Programs option on Control Panel.

Next, click on Programs & Features option.

Programs & Features

Locate the game and the launcher, right-click on them, and choose Uninstall.

Now let’s start clearing up any trace files left on your PC. Please double click on each shortcut on the first folder of the files and look for Folders/Files related to the game and launcher and delete them.

Locations to delete game and launcher leftovers after uninstalling it.

These are the locations you will find in the shortcuts:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)
  • C:\Program Files
  • C:\%userprofile%\Documents\
  • C:\%localappdata%
  • C:\%programdata%
  • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local
  • + more every time they get updated.

Once you delete everything related to the game from all these locations, the next thing you will have to do is to delete some leftovers in the registry.

Press Windows Key + R, and type Regedit.


A window should pop up. You will have to do now to copy each of the locations below, paste them into the registry search bar, and then look for any folders related to the game and launcher and delete them.

registry locations
  • HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\
  • + more locations on the files.

At each location, you will see a lot of folders on the left side.

Right-click on any folder related to the game & launcher and choose Delete.

delete registries

Step 2 – Change your Disk’s Serial IDs.

VolumeID by Microsoft is used to change the disk’s serial number/ID.

Hard drives are one of the most common hardware parts that get blacklisted on any hardware id(HWID) ban. Luckily, changing your hard drives’ unique identifier is effortless to bypass, and it won’t cause any issues on your hard drives or files. 

Below you can find how to change the serial number ids of all of your hard drives.

Navigate to the folder with the files you previously downloaded and go to step 2. You should see a file named “Change Disk IDs“. Right-click on it, and choose “Run as administrator“.

It will open a command prompt with all your drives, and it will ask you which drive ID you would like to change. Type just the letter of the Drive and hit enter.

Script to change Disk IDs (Volume Serial Numbers)

Press any key to continue, and your drives SN should be changed(you will see the confirmation message).

Do the same thing for the other drives once you get a message that the drive ID has been changed successfully. Once you’ve changed all of your drive ids, move on to the next step of the guide.

If you want to change the Drive ID manually or revert the changes, follow the steps below:

Run the “Change Disk IDs.cmd” file as administrator and close it directly. We are doing this only to move the required files on the C drive.

Run CMD as administrator and type the following commands: 

  • cd c:/
  • Now for every disk that you have, type -> vol (Disk letter): for example, if you have two disks, let’s say, C & D. You will have to type the following commands: 
    • vol c:
    • vol d:
    • Copy the Volume Serial Number of your disks in a separate text file and save it.
How to find out the serial number of your hard drives.
  • volumeid c: (type the Volume Serial Number you saved before, and change the last two digits to whatever you want) Example: If the previous Volume Serial Number was AB98-1233 , type the command -> volumeid c: AB98-1211
  • Do the same for the rest of the disks(if you have any)
  • You should get a message the volume id is updated.
How to change the serial number of your hard drivers to bypass the HWID ban on any game.

Okay, that’s it, you’ve successfully changed the hard drives’ serial numbers IDs, and you are one step closer to getting unbanned from your favorite game. 

Step 3 – Change HWIDs of everything.

AMIWIN64 is used in this step.

Now it’s time to change the system UUID, Baseboard serial number, System Serial, Chassis serial, etc. This is where all the magic happens. We are going to change every single hardware identifier that games flag on an HWID ban.

Navigate to “STEP 3 – Change HWIDS” folder, right-click on the “Change ALL HWIDs.cmd” file and choose “Run as administrator“.

HWID Bypass Script, spoofer, cleaner to bypass any HWID ban.

Then you will be asked to press any key to continue changing your HWIDs and the command prompt will show you upfront your new HWIDs for every hardware part.

How to change all HWIDs and bypass the HWID Ban(Step 1)

Once you press any button to continue, your Command Prompt should look something like the one below.

How to change all HWIDs and bypass the HWID Ban(Step 2)

You’ve successfully changed all your systems HWIDs, and you are ready to move on to the next step.

Step 4 – Edit HWID Registry keys

Next, you will need to edit a few registry keys that could link you back to the game you got HWID banned. It’s pretty easy to do. Below you can find the step-by-step instructions on how to do that.

Press Win Key + R on your keyboard, and a small window on the bottom left should appear. Type “Regedit” and hit enter.

How to access registry editor in Windows.

Now copy this path -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography and paste it into the search bar on the top side.

Location of an HWID value.

Go to the GUID Generator website, click on the button to generate a new GUID, and copy it.

GUID Generator

On the right side of the registry window, you should see the “MachineGuid” key. Double click on it, replace the GUID with the generated one and click OK.

Again, copy this path -> Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\IDConfigDB\Hardware Profiles\0001 and paste it into the search bar on the top side.

Go to the GUID Generator website, click on the button to generate a new GUID, and copy it.

On the right side of the registry window, you should see the “HwProfileGuid” key. Double click on it, replace the id with the generated one, and click OK.

Now let’s move on to the next step!

Step 5 – Mask your IP Address.

Your IP address is the most crucial security step that will even make or break everything you did above to bypass the HWID ban. The best way to change your IP address is to use a VPN service or a proxy server(Proxys need an excellent setup to avoid disconnections and unhiding your IP, so let’s stick with the VPN).

This is the most commonly asked question. Do I need a VPN? YES! You do. If you don’t use a new IP, your new account will get linked to your HWID ban, and it will be blocked, sometimes instantly or after a few hours/days.

Do I need to play the game with a VPN connection at all times? Yes, that’s one of the reasons I recommend getting NordVPN because you will have the lowest ping possible on any online game.

Why not use a Free VPN? Slow speed, high ping, and disconnections all the time which can leak your IP and get you banned instantly again. Don’t believe me? Go ahead and try yourself.

I can’t find a completely free method because you will need a VPN 100% to play your favorite game again, but you can get NordVPN for 3.29$ per month, which is the best possible solution I can think of.

How to correctly set up the VPN to protect you from getting your actual IP address leaked:

Step 6 – Change your MAC address.

The next thing that immediately gets banned by any game after the IP address on any HWID Ban is the MAC address, so you have to make sure you have a different one. Below you can find step-by-step instructions on how to change your MAC address on any Windows machine.

Navigate to Settings.

Settings Windows

Click on Network & Internet.

Network & Internet Windows

Click on “Change adapter options“.

How to change adapter settings in Windows

Right-click on your primary internet adapter and click on “Properties“.

Adapter Properties

Choose Client for Microsoft Networks, and click Configure.

Client for Microsoft Networks configuration

Navigate to the Advanced tab and choose Network Address.

Now go to this website, generate a new mac address, copy it, and paste it to the Network address box.

How to change MAC address on network adapter in Windows to bypass HWID Ban in any game.

Click OK, and you will be disconnected for a few seconds/minutes from the internet. No worries, it will get back up.

Now do the same thing for the NordVPN adapter. Right-Click on the NordVPN adapter and choose Properties.

Configuring the NordVPN adapter.

Choose “Client for Microsoft Networks” and click “Configure“. Navigate to the Advanced tab, choose MAC Address, and paste a newly generated MAC address from the generator.

How to change MAC address of NordVPN adapter in Windows to bypass HWID Ban on any game.

Once you’ve changed your ethernet/wifi adapter and the NordVPN’s adapter, MAC Address, proceed to the next step.

If the above method didn’t work for you

You will easily find a program to change your MAC address in the previously downloaded files. Select your Network Connections, click on the “Random MAC Address” button, and click on “Change Now!“.

Change MAC Address to bypass HWID ban on any game.

Step 7 – Create or buy a new game account.

Now that you got everything ready, it’s time to create a new account or buy a cheap one from one of these websites: MMOGA, MMOGAH.


  • Use the most commonly used email providers ( Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, Protonmail, etc.) Avoid temporary emails.
  • The same goes for the phone number. Don’t use the free numbers you’ll find on websites on the internet. Instead, use a phone number you never used before, get a cheap number from Tossable Digits or Hushed.
  • Don’t use Russian Numbers until further notice.

Step 8 – Create a new Windows User. (Recommended but required)

Recently I updated this guide to avoid reinstalling Windows from scratch, but instead of that, you will have to create a new Windows user. Pretty easy to do so; just follow the steps shown in the video below.

Step 9 – Change Monitor HWID

In some rare cases, your monitor serial might get banned as well. I would say that it’s worth changing it since the process is straightforward and quick. To change your Monitors ID Serial, follow the steps below:

Navigate to the folder -> STEP 9 – Change Monitor HWID, right-click on CRU.exe, and choose “Run as Administrator“.

Run CRU as Administrator

On the top side of the Custom Resolution Utility app, choose your Monitor/s and click on the “Edit” button.

How to edit your monitor's properties, settings, resolution, and hwids from Windows.

Change the value of the ID Serial and click OK.

Change Monitor ID Serial Number - HWID

Step 10 – Hide Mouse, Keyboard, and Controller serial numbers.

Getting your mouse, keyboard, controller, and other peripherals banned or flagged is rare, and it mostly happens in manual HWID bans. Since it will only take you one to two minutes to hide all your peripheral serial numbers, I recommend doing it to be safe.

I never needed to hide any of my peripherals ID to bypass the hardware id ban on all the tests I’ve done on different games. Still, many people have been sending me messages to include it as part of the solution since it helped many of them.

Below you can find step-by-step instructions on how to hide your mouse, keyboard, controller, and any computer peripheral serial number:

Navigate to the “STEP 10 – Change Mouse, Keyboard, Controller, SNs” folder or download USBDeview,, right-click on USBDeview.exe , and choose “Run as administrator“.

Showing how to: Right-click on USBDeview.exe , and choose "Run as administrator"

Locate your Mouse, right-click on it, and select “Open In RegEdit“.

Change controller, mouse, keyboard, and peripherals IDs and HWIDs.

Right-click on the marked folder on Registry Editor and choose “Permissions“. A window will pop up, and you should find the “Read” column and tick the “Deny” option. Once you do that, click Apply and OK.

Deny Reading Peripherals Serial ID

Repeat the same steps for your keyboard and controller(if you have one).

Step 11 – Download and Install the game.

Now it’s time to go ahead and download the game and install it on your computer.

Please navigate to the official website of the game you got banned, download it, install it, and log in with your new account.



  1. I did not even format my pc. I just reset and updated BIOS, got the vpn running on my dedicated ip, cleared warzone cache, got a new account and boom!!! BACK TO WARZONE :))))


      1. Yes i was HWID banned and yes since then i am using the VPN and everything is working perfectly fine!

    1. if u didnt format, what do u mean by reset then? please answer me

      and is there anyway i can do, without using vpn?

  2. Hello, I made a lot of choosing your tutorial except windows the router and VPN and I made myself Ban again. My question is as I had already put my bios in the latest version. Is it a black list file in the hwid? Do I need to reset and reinstall the latest version?

    1. Which of these steps do I have to do every single time I boot my computer and open the game? Other than the VPN ofc

      1. so this actually works? the thing im most worried about is downloading stuff from this site. just wondering if it can be trusted

        1. Author

          You can either scan files on VirusTotal or do everything manually(You don’t really have to download the files).

        2. This actually works, I got banned on Apex multiple times and have used this process and the files included to be unbanned.

  3. im so annoyed i got banned on fortnite because i had a warzone cheat on my pc like how does that work?

        1. whats your discord because i got banned on r6 and i need help

    1. hi there is there another way to change my IP instead of VPN because I cant use VPN every time i want to go inside the game for example can i change my network adapter?

  4. Any luck with this on escape from tarkov? Got banned for no reason, then got gifted a new account loaded into a scav for 30 seconds and automatically got banned again.

  5. Appreciate this thread.
    I am currently trying to figure out how to get past this hardware ban. I will try this. My only question is if I already have a usb with windows can I just use that instead of downloading a great version with rufus ??
    Thank you

  6. Platform checking……
    e3 – Error: System doesn’t support.
    after AMIDEWINx64.EXE /SU /BS /CS /SS

  7. Really good guide, however for some reason didn’t worked for me.
    Warframe is tough one to crack

  8. Is it mandatory to use a new windows profile since i did everything execpt new profile on windows for r6 and got insta banned. Dont wanna use more money for it to get banned again. So was that the reason i got banned?

    1. Author

      Yes, every single step is mandatory.
      Spend money on what? Everything is free, and even the VPN has a free 30 days trial.
      The only thing that you need to spend is your time.

  9. When i put in cd C:\HWID Bypass\HWID spoof it says that the path couldnt be found. Anyone knows the Problem?

        1. Author

          The best would be to reinstall Windows but creating a new user will work as well if you cleared all traces.

          1. dont need to make new user either thats just a extra step for ppl that think they know everything but you dont need to do it

  10. Hi,

    Is this a permanent way? or will i have to repeat this ever time i restart my pc?

  11. Hello,

    is this permanently or will i have to repeat all the steps again after a restart?

  12. Hope it works on valorant, i finished all step and gonna try it now after restarting my PC

  13. I’ve tried twice entering a email to get the program and have not received email yet, and yes I checked spam and all other folders

    1. Yes it sucks because you will get a little higher ping but on the other hand is worth it because you get to play the game again 😛

  14. hei, after i updated the volumeid, and do vol c: it’s still back to normal one? is it doing right?

  15. hei, yeah my question before just need to restart.
    once again.
    i’am using usb wireless adapter, and it can’t changing the mac address from windows. what should i do?

  16. hi there can I change my network adaptor instead of masking my IP and changing mac address?
    and if I use VPN I need to have VPN, on every time I play for example Fortnite ?

  17. Hi mate. Thanks for this. .I used this from October 2021. All was fine until week ago. I do this every week so I kno what I’m doing. But this last week method won’t work. Shadowban after 1 game. Warzone…
    I do that after fresh install…
    I don’t know what is detected right now.

    1. Author

      Check new files everything should be working now.
      I recommend entering your EMAIL so you can get all new locations/files instantly on email once I work on them.

      1. Question, a if I do this and make another steam account for the game, can I log into my old account for my other games as long as I don’t open the game I’ve been banned on?

  18. It worked the first time but I got hit with a ban again so quickly because of cheats.

    I did it again, and now I cant load into a game as if I was still banned, what do I do now, just repeat the steps?

    1. Author

      Repeat steps; make sure VPN is connected at all times before you log in and while playing.
      You can close the VPN when you are done playing.

  19. Yeah… Question, I did this before for Warzone. I was only able to play for 4 days. Then, I got banned again. I followed all steps and everything. I’m going to try it again with the updated version. But, any idea why it didn’t work completely the first time?

    1. Author

      You have to use VPN at all times when playing.
      Even if you forget to run the VPN once and try to open the game, you will be linked instantly and banned.


      1. Thanks for the quick response..
        I used the new files, I enabled the kill switch option on nordvpn so I get disconnected from the internet entirely if something goes wrong and it seems to be working pretty well till now. It’s been 6 days and still going, hopefully it stays like this

  20. CMD keeps on saying that ‘volumeid’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file. How do I fix it

    1. Author

      There was a mistake in the script.
      Just updated it, should be working now!

  21. Guys just follow every single step and it will work.
    I know for sure it works for valorant, eft, gta, and apex from my self and friends but should work for most if not all games.
    thanks again for this you’ve helped me so much the last few months i just came back here to possibly help some people in the comments !

  22. found this post because someone suggested following on some forums saying it worked and i am going to try for apex legends now and will let you know the results

    1. Its been a little over a motnth that i tried this and i came to say that it really worked for Apex!
      You da boss bro , cant thank you enough!!

  23. If you are thinking does this still work I did it and I got unbanned on fortnite after over 8 months of being HWID banned

    1. Can confirm as well that it works for Fortnite, Warzone, and Valorant.
      Did this before 4 months, and came back today to do it again. Worked both times flawlessly

  24. I can’t believe you’re posting this for free. you are a legend. Although the steps are difficult but you made it look easy by organizing it for us. These instructions couldn’t be made easier & simpler. Thank you very much. Worked with me on Ranked Gaming client (RGC)

  25. hello is there any way to change monitor ( display) hwid serials? because eac games like rust bans monitor serials aswell

  26. i extracted the folder to c drive but after i try step 3 it says The system cannot find the path specified. what i’m doing wrong?

    1. Put the entire “HWID Bypass” folder into your c drive directory, lookin at the command it tries to access
      cd C:\HWID Bypass\STEP 3 – Change HWIDS\_

  27. ive changed my drive ID and it worked but the problem was on step 3 change HWIDS. It keep telling me even though i did manual or auto, it tells me e3 – Error: System doesn’t support.

    what should I do as i am lost

  28. Welcome!
    For now, it seems very useful to read what you wrote.

    If you undertake to completely reinstall Windows, what steps can you omit from this guide?
    Obviously no file cleaning is required.

    HWIDs are created during Windows installation, as far as I know.
    If you install a new system on the same hardware, will the exact same HWIDs be created?

  29. Does changing your internet provider changes your ip? It also comes with a new router

  30. I have an error with the cmd changing ALL HWIDs, the specified path could not be found for “AMIDEWIN64.exe

  31. It took me 3 times to make it work because i messed up the first two times , but it finally is working lol.. thank you so much bro you are literally a life saver!!!!

  32. I did all of this and seemed to Un ban my pc on warzone. My question is… Instead of always using a VPN in the future can I just change my IP address? Would that work?

    1. Author

      Yes, that’s the point of the VPN to change your IP.
      If you can change it in a different way, then do that.

    1. how u could change ur ip address ? i saw some ppl saying restart ur router will give u new ip is that right?

  33. tried to do this for dead by daylight on steam and it didnt work, not sure if i did it wrong or it doesnt work for that game.

  34. step 3 doesnt work for me it says AMIDEWINx64.EXE’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file. How do i fix this?

  35. Might be a stupid question but the game needs to be installed on the new windows user correct?

  36. keeps sayinCMD keeps on saying that ‘volumeid’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file. How do I fix itg

  37. When I try to run volumeid on my C drive, it gives me a “Error reading drive: The parameter is incorrect.” error. I tried running sfc /scannow and chkdsk on my C drive, and it still gives me this error. Any tips?

  38. Will this interfere with any other game don’t want to change everything for one game and then get banned from another

  39. I receive this when attempting to change my drive id’s “volumeid’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
