How to get around a COD: Warzone 3 HWID Ban

Are you looking for a way to get around a Warzone 3 HWID ban? You are in the right place. In this guide, you will find step-by-step how to bypass a Warzone 3 hardware ban and IP Ban and get back to playing in a few minutes.

HWID bans on Warzone 3 are the most challenging type of game ban to fix since it’s hard to identify which hardware parts of your PC have been blacklisted.

Game developers and Anti-cheat companies are looking for better and more effective ways to ban Warzone 3 cheaters. That’s why, apart from IP banning, they’ve also been HWID-banning players based on their hardware parts for the last couple of years.

While, as I said above, the hardware and IP bans mainly apply to cheaters in-game and people who break the Warzone 3 ToS, there are some cases when users get punished without an obvious reason.

If you got HWID banned or your IP address is blocked from Warzone 3 and you don’t know the reason, then this guide is made for you.

Most of the time, when you get HWID banned from Warzone 3, a combination of the following unique identifiers will be blacklisted:

  • Mac address.
  • Motherboard.
  • HDD.
  • SSD.
  • IP Address. (IP BAN)
  • Network Card / MAC.
  • Router.
  • Other HWID keys on your PC.
  • Monitor.
  • Peripherals.
  • Windows unique identifiers.
  • and more.

Can you get hardware banned on Warzone 3?

Yes, Warzone 3 does HWID ban players frequently to keep the rest of the players protected.
If Warzone 3 detects any hacks or third-party software on your PC, you may receive a ban or block message upon login.

Can Warzone 3 IP Ban you?

Warzone 3 frequently uses IP bans to ensure the safety of its players. If the game detects any hacks or unauthorized software on your PC, you may receive an IP ban message when logging in or even be kicked out of the game while playing.

I made this custom HWID spoofer, to make it possible for everyone to follow the guide. Because not everyone knows how to use commands on CMD, edit the registry, or have hours to collect all the files manually.

All files are clean and virus-free, you can check by yourself on Virus Total or with any antivirus software.

The spoofer was updated in July 2024 to keep up with the latest game updates.

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

How To Bypass Warzone 3 HWID and IP Bans

It is crucial to follow each step of the guide in the exact order shown below to bypass the Warzone 3 hardware ban successfully. Skipping a single step may result in failure to spoof and conceal your previous HWIDs, which will require you to repeat the entire process.

Here is a quick overview of how to get around a Warzone 3 hardware ban:

  • Step 1: Uninstall Warzone 3 and clear all traces.
  • Step 2: Change HWID Registry keys.
  • Step 3: Change your IP Address.
  • Step 4: Change your Disk’s Serial Number/ID.
  • Step 5: Change hardware IDs.
  • Step 6: Change MAC address.
  • Step 7: Create or buy a new game account.
  • Step 8: Change Monitor HWID.
  • Step 9: Hide the Mouse, Keyboard, and Controller serial numbers.
  • Step 10: Set up Warzone 3 Correctly.

I highly recommend following the article below, as it is regularly updated. However, if you find yourself stuck at any point, there is a video available that shows all the steps included in the guide.

Step 1 – Uninstall Warzone 3 and clear all traces.

To begin fixing the Warzone 3 HWID ban issue, it is crucial that you completely uninstall the game and remove every related file from your computer. This is essential to avoid any potential traces of files that could be linked to the ban.

Make sure you moved the “HWID Bypass” folder to your C: drive.

Go ahead and download Revo Uninstaller.

Install it on your PC and run the program.

Look for Warzone 3, right-click on it, and choose Uninstall and Continue.

Choose Advanced, and click on the “Scan” button.

Choose Advanced, and click on the "Scan" button.

Now, you should see a list of all the leftovers and registry keys that would have been left on your PC after a normal uninstallation of Warzone 3. You don’t want those files/registry keys to link you back to the HWID ban from Warzone 3.

Click on “Select All” and click the button “Delete“.

Delete all registry leftovers from your PC.

Another window will pop up with more game file leftovers.

Again, click “Select All” and “Delete“.

Delete more leftovers from the game.

That’s it, you can move on to the next step.

Step 2 – Change HWID Registry keys

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

Here are step-by-step instructions to edit registry keys linking to the Warzone 3 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.

How to access registry editor in Windows.

Copy the following path: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography” and paste it into the search bar at the top.

Location of some hardware ids you need to change.

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

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

Double-click on the “HwProfileGuid” key on the right side of the registry window, replace the existing ID with the newly generated one and click OK.

How to change the 2nd GUID to bypass HWID Ban on Warzone 3.

Now, let’s move on to the next step!

Step 3 – Change 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 premium VPN now.

Even HWID Spoofers will require you to buy a VPN. If you were to buy a working HWID Spoofer, 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.

I’ve tried most premium and free VPNs, and the one with the highest success rate and good ping was NordVPN.

Benefits of using NordVPN

  • It works for your purpose of getting unbanned.
  • It has one of the lowest ping you can get from a VPN.
  • If the ping is too high in your location, you can always get a refund or get a dedicated IP address with a better ping.
  • They have a limited time offer: 3 months FREE + up to 74%+ Discount.(<- that link gets you a 🎁)
  • They offer a FREE password manager with the subscription. (Useful for managing and protecting ALT accounts as well as any online account)
  • They won’t sell your data (like most free VPNs).

Create an account, download the app, and connect to a server close to you.

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

In this step, we will use Microsoft’s VolumeID tool to modify the unique identifiers of the disk.

It’s common for hard drives to be blacklisted by Warzone 3’s hardware ID ban. The good news is that you can easily change the unique identifier of your hard drive without any risk to your files or the hard drive’s functionality.

Here are the steps to change the serial numbers of all your hard drives.

Navigate to the folder where you downloaded the files and go to the “Step 4” folder. Look for a file named “Change Disk IDs“. Right-click on it and select “Run as administrator“.

When you open the Command Prompt, all your drives will be listed. Enter the letter of the drive you want to change and press Enter.

Script to change Disk IDs (Volume Serial Numbers)

Press any key to continue and change your HDD/SSD SN. You’ll see a confirmation message.

Once you receive a message indicating that the drive ID has been successfully changed, repeat the same process for your other drives. After completing this step for all your drives, proceed to the next part 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:
    • Save the Volume Serial Number of your disks in a separate text file.
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) For example, if the previous Volume Serial Number was AB98-1233, type the command -> volumeid c: AB98-1211.
  • If you have additional disks, please repeat the same process for each of them.
  • You should receive a message indicating that the Volume ID has been updated.
How to change the serial number of your hard drives.

You’ve successfully changed the hard drive serial numbers, bringing you one step closer to lifting the HWID ban in Warzone 3.

Step 5 – How to Change HWIDs

In this step, you will learn how to change every unique hardware ID on every hardware part of your PC that Warzone 3 bans.

To complete this step, you will need to use AMIWIN64. (An automatic script is included in the files)

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

Run each command to display the current ID of each hardware part. Then, enter the command with a different ID of the same length as the default ID.


If you downloaded the files, do the following:

Navigate to “STEP 5 – Change HWIDs of everything” folder, right-click on the “Change ALL HWIDs.cmd” file and choose “Run as administrator“.

Changing all HWIDs using the free spoofer from SlothyTech.

After completing the hardware parts change, you will be prompted to press any key to continue. The new hardware IDs will be displayed in the command prompt.

How to change all HWIDs using a script.

After pressing any button to continue, your Command Prompt should correspond the example below.

Message in command prompt that all HWIDs have been successfully changed.

You’ve successfully changed all your system hardware IDs and are ready to move on to the next step.

Step 6 – Change your MAC address.

The MAC address is immediately banned by Warzone 3 after an HWID ban, so it’s crucial to ensure that you have a different one.

Here are the step-by-step instructions for changing your MAC address on any Windows computer.

Navigate to Windows Settings.

How to find Windows Settings.

Click on Network & Internet.

Here is an alternative way to spoof your MAC address.

Download Technitium MAC Address Changer, install it on your PC, and follow the instructions below.

Run Technitium MAC Address Changer, select your network Connection, click on the “Random MAC Address” button, and click “Change Now!“.

Change MAC Address to bypass HWID ban on Warzone 3.

Step 7 – Create or buy a new game account.

Now that you have everything ready, it’s time to create a new Warzone 3 account or buy a cheap one from one of these websites: MMOGA, MMOGAH, G2G

To get started, please go to the official website of Warzone 3 and sign up for a new account using fresh and unique details.

Once you have created a new account, refrain from taking any actions and proceed to the next step of this guide.


  • 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 have never used before, and get a cheap one from Tossable Digits, Hushed TextVerified or SMSPVA
  • Don’t use Russian Numbers until further notice.

Step 8 – Change Monitor HWID(Optional)

In rare instances, your monitor’s serial number may be included in the HWID ban. It is advisable to change it since the procedure is simple and fast. To modify your monitor’s ID serial, follow the steps mentioned 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.

It is a rare occurrence for your mouse, keyboard, controller, and other peripherals to be banned or blacklisted. This typically only happens in manual HWID bans by Warzone 3 administrators and moderators. However, as a precautionary measure, I recommend spending a minute or two to hide all your peripheral serial numbers. This will help ensure that you remain safe.

In case something stops working after you carry out this step, it’s recommended that you revert the changes made to ensure that everything works as expected.

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to change the ID or serial number of any computer peripheral device, including mouse, keyboard, and controller:

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 Warzone 3 Correctly.

Please download and install Warzone 3 from the official website, but do not launch the game 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 and no VPN packet loss)
  • Run Warzone 3 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. 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!!

  8. I did all this. Its been almost a month now and I’m still good? Whether I’m banned in the future time will tell, if that is the case I’ll repeat this process and hope it still works.
    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.

  10. Also, if I change my hwid and ip, and then I don’t cheat, than my acc is 100% safe, and won’t be banned, right?
