The newest Call of duty game isn’t even out yet but it looks like it’s already having issues with cheaters.
According to various reports, some cheat developers have even started posting that they will be selling lifetime access to Vanguard hacks once it launches on November 5.
Call of Duty: Vanguard has hackers already!
Call of duty Vanguard of course is Activision big 2021 first-person shooter being built by sledgehammer games.
The game is set during World War II and it will have full integration with Call of Duty Warzone, introducing its own map and WWII weapons, as well as its own zombies game mode, which is being developed separately by Treyarch.
However, it’s the standard multiplayer game mode where it lays the problem. During the most recent Call of Duty online Beta, which was open during the weekend and ends September 22, many players reported encounter or being killed by cheaters.
Significant amounts of video evidence since then have surfaced on forums and social media supporting the claims of players using a variety of hacks including wallhacks and even the ability to end a match at will.
As you may have heard, cheating has been a big problem for Call of duty for a while now (It started in 2010’s Call of duty Black Ops) but it’s gotten particularly worst over the last year.
Ten of thousands of cheaters were banned in the first half of 2021. And just last month over a hundred thousand accounts were banned in a single day. Just to send a message that does cheating. As well as providing a warning that new anti-cheat PC software is on the way.
Apparently, that new anti-cheat software hasn’t been implemented yet. But it is supposed to be launched with Vanguard on day one. And will be making its way to Warzone and other Call of Duty games as well.
In the meantime websites like Phantom Overlay are advertising Vanguard Hacks for sale. Including wallhacks, always on radar and aimbots. Besides the developer’s post that the cheats cant be found and that they will not hurt your FPS. The going rate is 150 euros or 176 dollars American to preorder a “lifetime” of Vanguard cheats.
But remember they actually don’t have any guarantee that they will be working. Once the new anti-hacking software hits the Call of Duty servers. In addition, the official Call of Duty blog has mentioned that they will be specifically targeting repeat offenders and consequences can include account bans, IP bans, Hardware bans, and potentially even legal action against those who break the rules and their suppliers of cheats.
Buying all the stuff up
It kinda makes you wonder if whoever it’s to there buying all this stuff up. And supposedly it’s a significant amount of people since these cheats are on the market and they have been popping out in the Beta for a game that isn’t even out yet.
But what do you think? Do you have any friends that feel the need to play with cheats enabled? How do you think they do it? Is it that important to appear to be really really good at video games? or do you think that is more of a troll mentality that brings them joy in watching you lose? Let me know in the comments below!
