Cheating and hacking have been a major issue in Call of Duty games to the point that Activision decided to include the improved anti-cheat system in their marketing plans. And it is one of the key features of Vanguard.

Right now, the cross-platform beta is only available to those players who have pre-ordered the game. Call of Duty’s biggest weakness is the lack of a strong anti-cheat system.

The recent marketing video for Vanguard also warned all the cheaters.

The official Call of Duty Twitter handle wrote, “We know what you are doing. We’re coming for you. This is not a drill: if you cheat, we will come and get you. Bans are on the way and anti-cheat will arrive in Warzone later this year.

Call of Duty has also claimed that the hackers who get permanently banned from Warzone due to hacking will also be banned completely from Vanguard. The prevalence of unethical activity is ruining the game once again. Hopefully, the situation will get normal soon.
