Call of Duty: Vanguard to Introduce Anti-Cheat

It’s a new year, and a new Call of Duty is on the horizon. Ahead of the recent Call of Duty: Vanguard release, news broke throughout the community; COD will enforce anti-cheat measures to the game’s PC version. That’s not all; Call of Duty: Warzone developers have confirmed that their Battle Royale will also get the anti-cheat treatment.

A very vocal majority of Call of Duty lovers have been asking Activision to deploy a potent anti-cheat on all game versions. While the console versions of the FPS game are relatively cheater-free, the PC version is flooded with blatant cheaters which make the game difficult to enjoy. A good quality anti-cheat system will filter out the cheaters and prevent them from playing the game all together.

Call of Duty: Vanguard – Promoting Anti-Cheat

It’s great to see Activision actively promote the new anti-cheat system with every ad and trailer of their new game; Call of Duty: Vanguard. It will be launching alongside the new game on PC and will stop people from using cheats that give them unfair advantages.

The new anti-cheat system will also be integrated into the already existing Call of Duty: Warzone. While opinions vary on how the company is trying to push the new games to current players, one thing every player will agree on is that the Battle Royale is in dire need of anti-cheat.

Call of Duty: Vanguard – Anti-Cheat Is That Important?

As someone who has over 13 days of actual playtime on Call of Duty: Cold War, I can personally say that yes, there is an absolute need for an anti-cheat. Cheaters run around one-shotting people from across the map, they can see through walls apparently, and each of their shots seemingly homes towards my head.

Of course, the problem isn’t as prominent when playing with console players. Hackers on PC have easier access to cheating software; some hacks are also paid content sold by websites. However, I have quite a few friends that play on PC, and cross-play needs to be enabled if you want to party up with them.

Some hackers seemingly have fantastic aim. Some can even shoot homing bullets that always land inside my head even when they shoot somewhere else, and some can see through walls and even shoot across the map; ultimately, making playing with my PC friends a lot less enjoyable.

Console players are already at a slight disadvantage when it comes to aiming; of course, that is subjective, and some would say the aim assist on the console makes them better. However, one thing everyone will agree upon is that cheaters and hackers must go.

Thankfully, Raven Software is completely overhauling the security system for their Battle Royale Call of Duty. They didn’t disclose any details about the new security system during their recent presentation, which is understandable, the less information that’s out there about the system, the harder it will be for the hackers to beat.

A hacker recently revealed that they were hit with a full hardware ban while cheating on Call of Duty: Warzone. As the battle Royale is a free to play title, even if cheaters are banned, they

can easily make a new account and hop back in. Thankfully, a hardware ban will make it a lot harder for them to simply type in a new email and get back to cheating.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is set to launch on November 5, and will contain a single-player mission campaign as well as the usual multiplayer modes. Sledgehammer Games are working on the single-player and multiplayer portion of the game, while Treyarch is developing an all-new zombies game mode.

Call of Duty: Warzone is also said to get a new map made by Raven Games when Call of Duty: Vanguard launches later this year.

The developers have announced a PlayStation exclusive alpha that is set to run from August 27 at 1 PM ET and end on August 29 at 1 PM ET. The alpha will also include a brand-new Champion Hill mode. We will be trying it out this weekend and report back on how it plays.
