Call of Duty Vanguard, the upcoming Call of Duty FPS game underwent an online multiplayer beta mode test. Even though this was a beta run of the game, hackers seemed to have already found their way into the multiplayer mode, ruining the experience for other players.
The issue was reported by several players over Call of Duty Vanguard’s weekend cross-platform beta testing. Several players uploaded clips of their game being overtaken by hackers, who have found their way into the game along with curious cats who wanted a sneak peek at next year’s Call of Duty.
Cheaters are already an issue in Call of Duty Vanguard
Of late however, Call of Duty games have been overly plagued with cheaters. Now, it seems that the situation has turned dire, as several players took to Twitter to upload not just a one or two games, but several which were plagued by cheaters. Even in its infancy, Call of Duty Vanguard has to deal with such issues- which can only get worse with time.
Vanguard’s cross platform beta testing over the weekend began on 10 Sept for PlayStation users and came to a close on 18 Sept, 2021. During this time, players noted a gradual increase in the number of cheaters in a match.
Monthly updates to help combat cheating in Call of Duty Vanguard
The developers at Activision are hard at work trying to battle out the cheaters and also bring the game up to speed so that it is ready to play at launch. This is asking quite a lot from the developers and they are locked in a long battle with cheaters in their games.
With monthly updates and frequent ban waves, the developers try to keep the community and casual players safe from the threat of cheaters. Call of Duty: Warzone especially was known for many ban waves over short time periods. Incidentally, many developers at Raven Software have gone to say that cheaters have ruined some of their best work.
