Call of Duty: Vanguard has a few months until release, but that hasn't stopped hackers from already taking advantage of the notoriously easy to bypass anti-cheat software in Call of Duty games. From blatant wall hacks to aimbot, cheating is already rampant in Vanguard.
Cheaters Already Found in Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta
Vanguard promised to launch with an all new and improved anti-cheat system, but the new parameters to catch cheaters has not been put in the game yet, allowing potential cheaters to easily input new hacks into their game.
Rightfully so, players in the beta are not happy with how it has been run so far. The trial for the new game has been marred by technical issues including some maps not loading correctly, and now cheaters are abusing in a beta for a game where the stats accumulated don't even carry over to the base game. Many are left to wonder why anyone would risk cheating in a game they had to pre-order, let alone in a beta.
Whatever the reasons may be, players are for set another title at the mercy of cheaters in Call of Duty. This is currently the single biggest issue facing the franchise, and if not fixed with the launch of the new anti-cheat system when Vanguard fully launches, there may be some long term losses in terms of player base for Call of Duty.
