The Cold War beta has a bit of a problem with cheaters.
Aimbots, “wall hacks,” unbelievable lag — this certainly is a beta. But it’s got the makings of a truly great Call of Duty experience, provided the problems can be addressed close to the launch window.
In one recent post, a video clip shows a player whose every round becomes a headshot. All the other players can do is laugh at how blatant and ridiculous it is.
Another upload shows a player virtually surrounded by enemies, but going full John Wick anyway, pivoting and landing on killshot after another.
No one could mistake this for the work of a human player.
“What’s even worse,” a commenter wrote beneath one of the videos, “is that [the cheater’s] nickname appears to be an advertisement for selling hacks.”
“Please tell me they’re going to have a theater system in this game like [Black Ops 4], where we can send sketchy clips to someone to review,” another user said.
In fact, Black Ops Cold War is expected to ship with a theater mode, so this kind of cheating should at least be easy to report once it’s spotted.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13.
