Call of Duty Hackers Show How Warzone Aided Them To Cheat In Vanguard
Sledgehammer Games confirmed that it will fix numerous bugs and issues in Call of Duty before the full launch. The beta was extended and lasted for just a few days to allow developers to get as much feedback as possible before the full game launches on November 5.
The community was thrilled to get into the battleground, but the Vanguard beta cheaters came out of nowhere. A multitude of matches was lost to aim botters on the very same day that the beta was released. To their dismay, players began to question the cheating and a report by Vice revealed how easy it was to cheat.
Vanguard uses a similar engine as Modern Warfare and Warzone, so it is not surprising that cheats from those games will be carried over to Vanguard. An anonymous source has confirmed that Vanguard’s code is almost identical to Warzone’s, meaning cheaters have always had an easy time gaining the upper hand.
Hackers were clearly visible using wallhacks, aimbots, and exploits to stop matches. Twitter user BennyLongStroke shared an incredibly short clip of the best play in a game. The clip shows the player locking onto players hiding behind walls with an unnatural level of accuracy.
Are Vanguard Players to Be Worried?
Although hackers were present in the Vanguard beta, it was discovered that the anti-cheat which was expected to arrive with the Warzone map was not activated. This is good news for players who hope for a decrease of hackers across both titles.
We have less than two months to go before Vanguard’s final release. Sledgehammer Games will soon reveal more information about the new game. Check out all we know so far about the single-player campaign and the all-new zombie’s story.
