The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War beta is now live, and players can access some of the content in the upcoming game. However, there are a lot of issues with the game, and most of it is caused by other players.
Cheating is still pretty rampant in many online games. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War isn’t safe from these issues. Players want to enjoy the beta experience completely, but it seems like that cheaters are preventing that. Will the developers be able to fix this before the game’s full launch?
A lot of players in the beta are spotting blatant hacking online. The cheats that’s most common is aimhacking which essentially allow the cheaters to make successful headshots without effort. As this is a shooter, those without the same advantage are getting no chances at winning.
As usual, the cheaters are isolated on the PC version of the game. Those playing on consoles will not be able to face these cheaters. The problem those is that cross-play is allowed in the game. As such, console players are advised to shut off cross-play because of the rampant cheating.
Apart from aimbotters, there are also players using wallhacks. This cheat allows players to see others through walls.
Of course, the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War community is angry at the cheaters. However, they are disappointed in the developers as well. The game is a multi-million dollar AAA title and players had expected better anti-cheat measures.
While this is just a beta version, players are still concerned about what would happen to the cheaters at launch. Various footages reveal that the aimbotters are not even trying to hide the fact that they are cheating. Despite this, the game allows them to play.
The developers are asked to add more anti-cheat measures before the game’s launch. With only a few more weeks to wait, players are concerned that there won’t be enough time to remedy the issues.
Those on consoles at least have a temporary solution to the problem. PC players on the other hand, have to hope and pray that they don’t get into a lobby with at least one cheater.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War launches this Nov. 13 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Players have higher expectations for this game.
