Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta Already Has Cheaters On PC
The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta is currently underway, and cheaters have already begun showing up in the PC version.
The Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta went live on PC earlier today on September 22, 2022 for those with Early Access privileges, and it didn’t take long for cheaters to show up and ruin the fun for others. Video footage has emerged showing a player running a wallhack mod, giving them the ability to spot enemy silhouettes from behind walls and environmental objects that otherwise obstruct visibility.
With Call of Duty Vanguard, Activision had introduced a new anti-cheat system, known as ricochet, to tackle the growing issue of cheaters, but it seems like the system has yet to be incorporated into Call of Duty Modern Warfare II. It’s likely that the feature will be available at the game’s launch on October 28, 2022. Until then, however, the beta is a safe haven for cheaters, as can be seen in the video above.
Other well-known cheats that have been used in earlier entries of Call of Duty titles on PC include the aimbot mod, which automatically positions the reticle on an enemy player’s head, allowing you to take them out easily. Players are advised to play their part and report any of these cases of cheating.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is the sequel to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which was released in 2019. On October 25, 2019, the latter was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is the sixteenth installment in the Call of Duty series and a reboot of the Modern Warfare sub-series.
The previous game took place in a realistic modern-day setting. The campaign featured a CIA officer and British SAS soldiers as they fought Russian invaders and Al-Qatala terrorists alongside rebels from the fictitious country of Urzikstan. The game’s Special Ops mode provided cooperative play missions that followed the plot.
The multiplayer mode allowed for cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform progression for the first time in the series. It was designed to make the gameplay more tactical, and it contained additional features such as a Realism mode that turned off the HUD and a 64-player version of the Ground War mode. As a post-launch upgrade, Warzone, a free-to-play battle royale mode, was also added to the game.
