Call of Duty: Vanguard’s final beta weekend is still currently happening, as it was extended until September 22nd across all platforms. Unfortunately, players are already dealing with hackers. This is Call of Duty: Vanguard’s second multiplayer beta weekend, which added cross-play for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. Of course, this brought cheaters with it, who are ruining games for with the typical hacks, like aimbot and wallhacks. A few players have also posted clips of cheaters ending matches early, with a message that states the host ended the game.
Activision continues to work on banning cheaters in Call of Duty, with hardware bans from Warzone leading to a ban in the Vanguard beta. While this does reduce cheating, the encounters with hackers continue in Call of Duty.
The hacking in the Vanguard beta is extremely concerning, because it means this could lead to another year of console players being bottlenecked into lobbies with their own platform. Hopefully, once the new anti-cheat system is put in place with the integration of the new Warzone Pacific map, the cheating will dissipate.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will arrive to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on November 5th. If you’re looking to pick up a copy of the game, you can check out our preorder guide.
