Anti-cheat tech is on the way...
A number of Call of Duty Vanguard cheaters have been recorded using cheats to auto-aim against opponents.
Cheaters were running rampant in this past weekend’s Vanguard multiplayer beta; several examples of cheating can be viewed below.
It could be a small comfort to know that Activision Blizzard will soon employ a new anti-cheat system into both Vanguard and Call of Duty Warzone.
“This is not a drill: If you cheat, we are coming for you,” the official Call of Duty account wrote on Twitter earlier this month. “Banwaves are ongoing, and PC anti-cheat is arriving in [Warzone] later this year.
“Over 100,000 [Call of Duty] accounts were banned yesterday – targeting repeat offenders and cheat providers at the source,” Warzone developer Raven Software wrote a week or so earlier.
There’s a small silver lining while we wait for the anti-cheat system to be implemented: it appears as if Activision accounts previously banned in Warzone are automatically banned from Vanguard.
There are only a couple hours left in Vanguard‘s third and final beta.
Call of Duty Vanguard heads to Windows PC, Xbox and PlayStation from 5 November 2021. You can head here to read our hands-on preview.
