Call of Duty Vanguard: Hackers spotted during beta test

Call of Duty Vanguard Beta

The developers of Call of Duty Vanguard ran their open beta over the weekend and the issues of hackers in the series have surfaced once more.

Sledgehammer Games have pledged to introduce anti-cheating software into the game later this year to combat some of the issues that have arisen in Warzone over the past 12 months, which has caused a number of social media influencers to speak out about this.

One of those was VikkStar, who could not understand why these individuals were still allowed to participate after he was trying to run an online tournament with a lucrative cash prize.

Last month, Raven Software had announced that they had banned over 100,000 CoD accounts in their combat against cheaters and their providers.

That being said, this appears to have not been enough - even when it comes to the latest title in the hugely successful franchise.

While a number of people across social media were naming and shaming hackers during the Vanguard beta, compilations were even being on the platform TikTok to showcase just how shocking some of the clips are.

One of which was shared by Wicked Good Gaming on Twitter - with seven kills being accumulated in just 13 seconds thanks to his assisted aiming software.

The video speaks for itself.

While this may be funny to some, it is severely hampering the gaming experience for others and is causing even more gamers to complain about the alleged lack of effort that the developers are making to fight this issue. 

Let's hope that these anti-cheat implementations are brought forward so that cheaters are absent in Vanguard and Warzone permanently going forward. While it appears it has not been introduced at this time, it is worrying that hackers are even appearing during a beta test.
