The fight against toxicity continues in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. It is the first in the franchise to introduce everyone to an overhauled in-game reporting system. With this, players should have more ways to report offensive behavior. It also allows for new features that can assist the moderation teams in fighting toxicity.

Indeed, the upgraded system allows the game's moderation teams to restrict player features in response to confirmed player reports. This is part of the security and enforcement policy. For example, when a player has been verified to be engaging in offensive voice chat, the moderation team can now mute that player globally from all in-game voice chat features. In the same manner, the upgraded system can also restrict text chat features for those found to have been abusing in-game global chat.

In-Game Reporting

In a post, the development team admitted that there's no such thing as one-size fits all when it comes to in-game situations. To address this gap, the reporting system allows players to give context to their reports.

To do this, players can discuss more about the situation being reported through the optional dialog box. This is part of the third pillar of the Call of Duty universe Code of Conduct known as "Stay Vigilant." Hopefully, players should now have more tools when reporting anything offensive or inappropriate. You can learn more about the Call of Duty Security and Enforcement Policy here.
