Call of Duty: Warzone has long been besieged by hacks, cheats and exploits. So it’s probably no surprise that the series’ next mainline installation, Vanguard, is already suffering a similar fate in its recent open beta.
According to a report by Waypoint, cheaters have already begun hawking their wares in the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta. Taking advantage of the fact the beta doesn’t feature Call of Duty’s much-vaunted new anti-cheat system, hackers have been able to instantly end matches.
But as with Battlefield 2042, cheat developers are already preparing for the game’s full launch. Listings viewed by Waypoint advertise “lifetime” access to Vanguard hacks. Reportedly, these cheats have sprung up so quickly because much of Vanguard’s code is similar to 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot, making it easier for developers to create hacks for the unreleased title.
