Cheaters Are Already Ruining Call Of Duty: Vanguard

We should have seen this coming.

Vanguard’s closed beta has just ended to make way for a new open one, and the word out of the limited playtime is that the new Call of Duty World War II shooter is a good time. Given how incredibly modern the franchise has been lately (despite that being what many are looking for), it’s meant to be a refreshing change.

But, there’s a problem. And it’s a problem that appears to have plagued the last few years of the Call of Duty experience.

Cheaters Have Already Infiltrated Vanguard

Oh, good.

Warzone seems to have given its bug to Vanguard before it’s even been able to leave its first tests, as some cheaters have already been spotted in its closed beta. Video evidence has arisen on Twitter, proving that some players are already making use of wallhacks - a cheating technique that’s sadly very familiar to Warzone players.

It’s not even subtle, either. The final killcam of one player’s game shows a cheater’s aim hopping around the screen in perhaps the least natural-looking final kill we’ve seen yet.

Fans are deeply frustrated by the hack’s appearance in the new game before it’s even out, not only because it’s so reminiscent of their battle royale experiences, but because this was meant to be a departure from unfair gameplay.

But this bears the question - where on earth is that anti-cheat?

Why Haven’t These Hacks Been Stopped By Vanguard’s Anti-Cheat?

Many fans have theorised that the game’s anti-cheat just hasn’t been activated - but if this isn’t actually the case, then it’s very clear that the promised anti-cheat that is set to come to Warzone too simply isn’t good enough.

If this comes to be true, it’s a depressing indicator that Call of Duty could be too far gone, and better left to the hackers. It’s upsetting after Raven Software’s promises, and the expectations left on Sledgehammer Games in their production of Vanguard, but we’ll have to wait and see how the game looks upon launch before exacting judgement. Which is easier said than done, in all fairness.

Vanguard could be in trouble here, but so long as the anti-cheat hasn’t been deployed yet, and it’s as effective as we’ve been promised, then we don’t have anything to worry about.
