Call of Duty Vanguard Hackers Are Already Appearing and Ruining Games
The Call of Duty Vanguard beta is still going on at the time of this post, but that will likely not last for too much longer. With the end of the beta nearing soon, it is time to reflect on the experience and how even in a test period, there were already Call of Duty Vanguard hackers running rampant.
Call of Duty Vanguard Hackers Have Appeared
That’s right, many players were already experiencing the unfortunate nature of the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers during the open beta test, even though this is a game that has not even fully released yet and will not for the next month and a half or so.
Even still, this did not stop the hacking community from jumping ship for a time from the usual exploits on Warzone and Black Ops Cold War to checking out the next mainline target for them. This is something that quickly became a massive issue and affected the quality of the beta.
After all, there were already issues in the Vanguard beta test, as noted in our preview of the entire first weekend, and this was only compounded by the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers that suddenly appeared, too. This ranged from the standard cheats that they will employ to some crazier stuff, too.
I experienced this, personally, in my games most recently over the past weekend with the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers starting to appear in my matches, too. They would use aimbots and the usual methods to try to look like much better players than they actually were.
Twitter User Shares Clip of Hacking in the Beta
However, there were some instances of the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers that were actually worse than the ones that I and others experienced in the game. In fact, one of the craziest matches was something that the Twitter user EasyStomps shared about over the weekend.
During one of the beta matches that they had for Search & Destroy on the already popular Gatuvu map, the Twitter user is shown fighting against the enemy players on the beach and his team is sitting at three players left in the round while the other team has just a bit more with four.
Quickly into the clip, the enemy team drops to three and then another teammate is able to take someone out to get the advantage three to two. At the same time, the Twitter user in question who shared the video clip was in the midst of a lengthy fight against another user still on the beach.
This eventually ends with the player able to reload and outsmart the opponent to take them out with a nice long shot in the end, leaving the match with three players against just one now and it looking like the round was going to go to EasyStomp’s team.
Hacker Actually Ends the Match Early
But before the end of the round can happen, something wild happens. While all of the action was happening, one of the players on the other team who seems to be the top player who goes by the username “love” is dead and trash-talking EasyStomp’s team through the chat.
The hacking player is stating that EasyStomp’s team is “terrible” and trashing them, with someone coming back with the response that it is because they “don’t cheat”, effectively calling out this player who was likely cheating his way to the top of the leaderboard in this match.
It is at this point that the cheater in question goes “uh oh, alright, ending the game” and then proceeds to instantly end the game. The defeat screen shows the opposing team, with the enemy hacker on there winning the match in the end, despite likely having the less-skilled team.
The message that shows across the screen is that the host chose to end the match and that is it. The team with the Twitter user who posted the clip only had one round win and the other team had three round wins, making them win the match even though S&D is supposed to go until one team reaches six round wins.
What made this whole situation wild and why this video clip went viral is the fact that the player actually said they were going to end the game and then proceeded to do it right then, proving that they were not playing games and was actually capable of doing so.
This Is an Insane Issue Since Vanguard Hasn’t Released
This is not your ordinary case of Call of Duty Vanguard hackers, either, as we now know that there are some hackers out there who are actually capable of controlling when the game ends. If they want a quick victory while they have the lead still, they can just end it right then and there.
This is massively problematic, especially since Vanguard is not even released yet and there are hackers finding new ways to torment the players who just want to play the game the right way. This might have some wondering how the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers were able to exploit the game during the beta.
The possibility is that the third-party software that already exists out there that is easily accessible and allows players to cheat in Call of Duty Warzone is likely compatible with Vanguard. Given that both games use the same engine, it likely does not take much to use that software in Vanguard.
Furthermore, given the beta phase of the game, it is also likely that some of the anti-cheat software may not be available in the beta testing for the title. Here’s hoping that no matter what the case is, that Sledgehammer Games is able to find some way to combat the Call of Duty Vanguard hackers in the time leading up to its launch on November 5, 2021, so that players can actually play their entire matches fairly.
