How To Bypass HWID Ban in Warzone – Detailed Guide 2022

HWID (hardware) bans on Call of Duty Warzone are the hardest to bypass since, apart from your IP address being banned, there are also one or multiple hardware parts with unique identifiers blocked by Call of Duty Warzone. 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, including Call of Duty Warzone, have started banning players based on their hardware ids(HWID BAN) as well as IP/MAC addresses.

While, as I said above, the Call of Duty Warzone hardware id ban mainly applies to cheaters in-game and people who break the rules. But there are some cases when users will get HWID banned without an obvious reason.

Whatever your case may be, in this article, you will find all the information you need to bypass an HWID ban in Call of Duty Warzone.

To bypass the HWID ban on Call of Duty Warzone with 100% success, you should do every step of this guide in the same order as shown below and not skip a single one. If you miss anything you’ll most likely fail to bypass the ban and you will have to redo everything.

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 Call of Duty Warzone.

HWID Bypass Files

The files and the whole guide were updated on May 2022 to keep up with the latest Call of Duty Warzone Updates.

OR

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 Call of Duty Warzone and clear all traces.

The first and most important thing you’ll have to do is to completely uninstall Call of Duty Warzone 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 hardware id 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 Call of Duty Warzone and the launcher, right-click on it, and choose Uninstall.

Now let’s start clearing up all 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 Call of Duty Warzone and the launcher and delete them.

Locations to delete Call of Duty Warzone 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 Call of Duty Warzone 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.

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 Call of Duty Warzone/launcher and delete them.

registry locations
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\
  • 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 Call of Duty Warzone and the Launcher and choose Delete.

Step 2 – Change your Disk’s Serial Number

Hard drives are one of the most common hardware parts that get blacklisted on an Call of Duty Warzone hardware ban. Luckily, changing your hard drives’ serial number is effortless to bypass, and it won’t cause any issues on your hard drives or files if you follow the steps below.

Below you can find how to change the serial numbers 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.

Okay, that’s it, you’ve successfully changed the hard drives’ serial numbers IDs, and you are one step closer to getting unbanned from Call of Duty Warzone. 

Step 3 – Change HWIDs of everything.

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 Call of Duty Warzone flags 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“.

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 Call of Duty Warzone ban. Below you can find step-by-step instructions on how to edit all registry keys that could possibly link you back to the hardware id ban.

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

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

Now let’s move on to the next step!

Step 5 – Mask & Setup 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 Call of Duty Warzone 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 Call of Duty Warzone 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 Call of Duty Warzone.

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 Call of Duty Warzone 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 seen by Call of Duty Warzone:

Step 6 – Change your MAC address.

The next thing that immediately gets banned by Call of Duty Warzone after the IP address on any 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.

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.

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 or some options were missing

There is 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 “Change Now!“.

Step 7 – Create or buy a new game account.

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

Navigate to the Call of Duty Warzone Official Website and create a new account with new details. 

TIPS:

  • 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 free number from the Hushed App, or try to find another app that gives you a trial or cheap phone number.
  • Don’t use Russian Numbers until further notice.

Step 8 – Create a new Windows User.

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; 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, 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 Call of Duty Warzone and install it on your computer.

Please navigate to the official website of Call of Duty Warzone, download it, install it, and log in with your new account.

  1. Do I need to change the serial IDs of hardware every time I launch the game? Or once I do the process once from start to finish, I should be ok until I am banned again and need to re-do these steps? I guess my question is – Once I change the hardware IDs, are they changed permanently regardless of computer restart?

    1. Author

      These changes are permanent and will stick after restarting.
      If you want to revert changes you will have to do it again manually.

  2. Hi, Im having issues with step 3. Everytime i paste cd C:\HWID Bypass\HWID spoof to CMD it says the system cannot find the path specified.

  3. This is very detailed and an excellent guide. Just did everything to a T and I will get back with the results.

    1. Let me know if it works! Made the stupid mistake of using cheats.

  4. I keep getting this when trying to change the C & D Drive

    ‘volumeid’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

  5. Once I’ve done the test, the bit before doing the steps, would I not need to use a different IP if it is confirmed as HWID ban? I’ve just followed all the steps from the test and am pretty sure it is a HWID as my new account now appears to be shadow banned. Does this mean I can no longer use the dedicated IP as this will be linked to my HWID right? Or?

    1. Author

      Just follow all the steps, connect to VPN, get new account, and you should be good.

  6. When trying to run the HWID changer it doesnt seem to be working, it says the system cannot find the path specified..

    any suggestions?

    1. Author

      MOVE THE HWID Bypass FOLDER TO C:/
      I don’t understand why it is so hard for people to pay attention and read. It’s written at least five times that the files should be moved to C drive.

    2. make sure you have copied the whole folder called “HWID Bypass” into C: make sure you are running the tool from within that location “C:\HWID Bypass\STEP 3 – Change HWIDS” the script will only work if the extracted folder is saved to the specified location

  7. Does the MAC address need to be changed for the vEthernet adapter as well?

  8. Do I have to download warzone with the VPN on or can i use my normal internet to download and just use the vpn every time I play the game? VPN is slowing the download significantly.

  9. You can download with your normal internet connection but don’t login to the new account without making sure you are running on VPN.

  10. Slothytech thank you bro I really appreciate the effort in collecting all this information and even making custom scripts to make this stuff work all together lol!
    You save me so much money from buying a new PC!!

  11. i have followed all the steps including moving the extraced file to disk c tho it still sais that its incorrect. any suggestions or anyone that could help me fix that problem ?
