How To Bypass HWID/Hardware Ban in COD: Warzone 2

HWID (hardware) bans on Call of Duty: Warzone 2 are the hardest to bypass since, apart from your IP address being banned, there are also one or multiple hardware parts with unique identifiers(IDs) blocked by Warzone 2. Game companies are looking for better and more effective ways to ban cheaters in-game that’s why a lot of them, including Call Of Duty: Warzone 2, have started HWID banning players based on their hardware parts permanently in the last few years.

While, as I said above, the Call Of Duty: Warzone 2 hardware ID ban mainly applies to cheaters in-game and people who break the rules, there are some cases when users get hardware banned without an obvious reason.

Whatever your case may be, in this article, you will find all the information you need to spoof and change your hardware IDs to bypass an HWID ban in Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.

How To Get Unbanned From Call Of Duty: Warzone 2 HWID Ban

To get unbanned from the hardware ban on Warzone 2 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 spoof your hardware IDs and get unbanned on Warzone 2, and you will have to redo everything.

Step 1 – Uninstall Call Of Duty: Warzone 2 and clear all traces.

The first and most important thing you’ll have to do when you are hardware banned on Warzone 2 is to completely uninstall COD: Warzone 2 and make sure to clear every single file related to it. We want to ensure that no files are left on the PC that could link you back to the COD: Warzone 2 hardware 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 Warzone 2, right-click on it, and choose Uninstall.

Now let’s start clearing up all trace files left on your PC.

Double-click each shortcut on the first folder of the files, look for folders/files related to Warzone 2, and delete them.

Locations to delete Warzone 2 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 Warzone 2 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 copy each of the locations below, paste them into the registry search bar, and then look for any folders related to Warzone 2 and delete them.

registry locations
  • HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\

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

Right-click on any folder related to Warzone 2 and choose Delete.

Step 2 – Edit HWID Registry keys

Next, you will need to edit a few registry keys that could link you back to the Warzone 2 HWID ban.

Below you can find step-by-step instructions on editing all registry keys that could link you back to the hardware ID ban and get you in trouble again.

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 3 – Mask your IP Address

We see this all the time in the comments and on the emails we receive that people don’t want to pay for a VPN or want to make this work with a free VPN. Unfortunately, that will not be sustainable, and you will actually spend more money on new accounts and countless hours thinking about why you are getting banned again than just getting a good VPN now.

Even HWID Spoofers will require you to buy a VPN. If you were to buy a working HWID Spoofer for Warzone 2, you would have to pay around 500$-1000$ per year for the spoofer + VPN. By following this guide, you only need the VPN(3$-4$ per month) and 15 minutes of your time to follow the steps.

Click here to get NordVPN (<- that link gets you a discount + 🎁), create an account, download the app, and follow the steps in the video below.

I can’t find a completely free working method to go around the ban, but this is the cheapest it can get.

How to correctly set up NordVPN to protect you from getting your actual IP address seen by Warzone 2:

Step 4 – Change your Disk’s Serial Number/ID.

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 an Warzone 2 hardware ban. Luckily, changing your hard drives’ serial number is effortless to do, 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 all your hard drives’ serial numbers.

Navigate to the folder with the previously downloaded files and go to “Step 4 Folder“. 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 you will be asked which drive ID you want 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 HDD/SSD 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 your HDD/SSD 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 Warzone 2.

Okay, that’s it, you’ve successfully changed the hard drives’ serial numbers IDs, and you are one step closer to getting permanently unbanned from Warzone 2. 

Step 5 – Change the HWIDs of everything.

In this step, you will learn how to change your hardware ID(HWID) on every hardware part of your PC that Warzone 2 bans.

AMIWIN64 is used in this step.

If you didn’t download the files, these are the commands you need to use when you run AMIWIN64:

Run each command to see the current ID of each hardware part, and then type the command with the same number of characters as the default ID. (Make sure they are different.)


If you downloaded the files, do the following:

We will change every hardware ID that Warzone 2 flags on an HWID ban.

Navigate to “STEP 5 – Change HWIDs of everything” 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 hardware parts IDs and the command prompt will show you upfront your new hardware IDs for every hardware part that was banned from Warzone 2.

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

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

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

You’ve successfully changed all your system hardware IDs, and you are ready to move on to the next step to permanently fix the ban on Warzone 2.

Step 6 – Change your MAC address.

The next thing that immediately gets banned by Warzone 2 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“.

Click OK, and you will be disconnected from the internet for a few seconds/minutes. 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

Download Technitium MAC Address Changer and follow the instructions below.

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!“.

Change MAC Address to bypass HWID ban on Warzone 2.

Step 7 – Create or buy a new game account.

It’s time to create a new Warzone 2 account or buy a cheap one from one of these websites: MMOGA, MMOGAH.

Navigate to the Warzone 2 Official Website and create a new account with new details. 


  • 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. Instead, use a phone number you never used before, and get a cheap one from Tossable Digits, Hushed or TextVerified(One-time verification).
  • Don’t use Russian Numbers until further notice.

Step 8 – Change Monitor HWID.(Optional)

In some rare cases, your monitor serial might also be a part of the HWID ban. 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 8 – 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 9 – Hide Mouse, Keyboard, and Controller serial numbers.(Optional)

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 one to two minutes to hide all your peripheral serial numbers, I recommend doing it to be safe.

Below you can find step-by-step instructions on how to spoof and change your mouse, keyboard, controller, and any computer peripheral ID/Serial Number:

Navigate to the “STEP 9 – Hide Mouse, Keyboard, and Controller serial numbers.” 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 10 – Set up Everything Correctly.

Please navigate to the official website of Warzone 2, download it, install it, and don’t run the game just yet.

  • Open NordVPN, go to “Settings” and make sure “Kill Switch” is enabled.
  • Connect to a server in your preferred country. (Servers closer to you will get you better ping)
  • Run Warzone 2 and log in with your new account.
  • Enjoy the game, and leave a comment below to let me know if it worked for you!

  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. 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.

  4. 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. 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

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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!!

    Thank you anyways for this guide it helped a ton!!! Highly recommend.

    1. If I changed my computer, motherboard, SSD, apperative memory, as well as the processor. I need to change the IP address and MAC address after that

  9. Does this still work after the latest update? Did everything to a T and was going to make an account and give it a whirl but wasn’t sure if it’s still viable.
