"Call of Duty Warzone has been out for more than two weeks, and cheating reports are mounting as the game continues to grow. Will Warzone be another battle royale game plagued with cheaters?" Dante of Game Life
This is inevitable in any game. What else are these low lives going to do? Play the game like everyone else?
You would think that their lack of skill would encourage them to get better at the game, but no. They gotta ruin the experience for everyone else
Totally agree, but tbh not everyone does or will ever get better. I've seen it in other games with people. They did not resort to cheating but they never got any better.
Consoles are a lot harder to hack but it's still possible, I've seen a few aim bots on console. Either that or they're playing keyboard and mouse to make it really easy.
Free to play PC games, do you mean, isn't it? Because when you pay for an online service, it is more difficult to have these problems.
I quit playing PC 20 years ago because it was already plagued by cheaters. The main reason why I switched to console. Look at cod on console only vs when you play cross platform: day and night.
Agreed. That’s why console should never have crossplay with PC. The cheaters are all over the place and ruin the experience.
When I said this when they announced that there will be crossplay, everyone voted me down. I knew it was just a matter of time before people actually experience PC gamers ruining o line games by either using some sort of cheat or by the superior precision of K/M. Well everyone cheered and wanted crossplay. Here you go guys.
In the standard multiplayer it's really not that prevalent.
Crossplay isn't a bad thing. Poor anti-cheat is. Console players have methods of BS too.
My cross play is turns off I wish I could play only with people who use controllers
Cheaters or not, KB/Mouse players should not be in the same lobbies as console players, the advantage is simply too much.
I remember Unreal Tournament 3 had crossplay with pc and you had an option to play with mouse and keyboard and to you could choose if you wanted to play with kb/mouse players. thats fine with me
Surely it is an advantage, but it's still playable. But when someone auto headshot or see/fire through walls, it isn't.
Ground War also forces you to play crossplay, weird seeing as you're never going to be short of a full lobby.
Call of Duty has been Dead on Arrival on PC since Ghosts anyway (except Black Ops III).
So how has inexpensive lag switches and modded controllers worked for you? Or did you forget those are so rampant they have dedicated communities for popular titles? It's naive to think switching platforms makes a difference. Warzone's problem is that 1. It's extremely popular and 2. it's anti-cheat method is by default garbage.
3, its free to play
There's cheating on console too, lol
exact same reason I left pc gaming after the half life 2 era. Great times for pc gaming then but the cheating became more and more of an issue for the fps games I would play. Absolutely no interest in pc gaming anymore now that most games don’t support mods either. Rather an even playing field on consoles but even they’re getting bad with bs like Xim and Chronus being used by absolute scrubs.
I switched for that exact reason.
There are cheaters on console as well my buddy from work just got banned for cheating.
Angry Trashnite player 😂
What does Fortnite have to do with this?
I am assuming there is a deep heated rivalry or something lol
Thank you to all the cry babies who demanded cross-play for the last couple years. I always turn that crap off on PS4
Yep, even though the devs constantly shove the 'turn crossplay on' nonsense for a better chance of filling the lobby. Devs, on PS4, there will always be enough players to fill the lobby, i turned it off for a reason, stop with the message.
Yeah they keep trying to force you to put it back on like come on you guys had no problems filling a lobby in Cod before cross play especially on PS4.
It's great to have the option. It shouldn't be forced though.
I play on PC so the only way for me to actually have any kind of challenge is to not play with console players. They should have never allowed cross play with PC.
The Crossplay is already based on input method.
It's based on game mode as well. You can only play plunder,br, warzone on crossplatform
You must be the best gamer in the world. That's why everybody know you. Congratulations, you living legend
Thanks bro. I got tired of destroying console players even with their aim assist on high. Its just not fun.
let's see them stats
COD hasn't been a strong PC title since COD2. It is very much a console game these days and without the console playerbase I could see PC lobbies bleeding out soon after the hype fizzles. PC COD playerbase is easily the smallest of the 3 and needs crossplay for longevity.
You are absolutely right. With Warzone being free it will maintain a huge playerbase. I think on PC the regular multiplayer will die soon. I play with PC players only and it takes a while to fill lobbies now that Warzone is out.
Let me touch you.
This is why you don't do free to play, it makes it where cheaters can just make a new account if they get banned.
honestly I quit the game 3 days ago because it was unplayable.
I always have crossplay off, it's a shame but these kind of PC players were always going to infect the game at some point. Personally, I would love to see aim assist removed for consoles (no PC/Mouse players), just because it would make the gun fights better, more skilled and more hilarious because COD hides a lot of crap players behind aim assist. I mean some of the SMG kills from distance are laughable with aim assist on.
I turned it off because it screws me over more times than it helps
That didn't take long, I cant stand people who ruined the game for others just cause they suck and have to resort to cheating.
I wish there was an option to have cross play between xbox and ps4 only since I seem to come across quite a few aim bots
Damn. That was pretty much the reason why I paid for xbox live from the og xbox and 360 days. What would be the point now?
Always said cross play was a bad idea, but people wanted it so they whined and complained. Now they have it, they're whining and complaining. Maybe cross play should be behind a paywall, that way those that truly want it will go that extra step. Those that don't would not have to put up with cheaters on the different platforms.
Honestly, the best mode in MW is cyber attack. Short tense games where teams and lives matter. Turn Crossplay off and play that. Or 10v10 shuffle.
Cross-play should be between consoles only.
I tend to avoid almost all Multiplayer FPS maybe I'm getting old and no longer as fast with my fingers and reflexes. And then there's the people who cheated on older games that I used to be a regular like BF4 and BF Hardline. BFH was almost unplayable to me TTK is way too low and then you take into account that many of these players are now just resort to cheating to scrape the bottom of barrel fun then it made sense why I stopped playing and caring,COD Warzone being Free to play is tempting but then it reminded me of BFH but now with twice the players,PC K/M and cheaters included then I have to pass,had enough of all that BS.
It was already unplayable by being a garbage battle royale game.
Have you played it? I've never played BR before, but it's actually good fun.
Played three matches with friends. Took two to learn the system, and the third time we won. Too easy and boring.
This game is absoulte garbage with terrible graphics. Clunky controls that clearly copied Fornite ideas from years ago.
Why are we forced into cross platform???
You aren't. There's an option to turn it on or off.
To play warzone, plunder you are
I just dont get the cheating.... Who are you fooling? I am a horrible MP gamer I finish 12-10 15-12 12-17 but I try and its fun , how are you stroking your ego knowing your freaking CHEATING to be at the top?? or why do you try to ruin someone elses good time??? I dont get the mentality of some people....gaming was a good time , now its become a haven for D-bags and losers, it sucks but thats what its been reduced to
Having played it on PC abit there is only one time i encountered a cheater where i can be certain they where cheating, i have friends who are consistently good who can get between 10-20 kills a game, they get flagged for cheating constantly even though they don't your chances of meeting a cheater are a lot small than people make out, alot are false flags by people who just got killed by a much better play. I play quake champions on and off when i do i get accused of cheating all the time yet i have never cheated in any multiplayer game ever. It much easier to accuse people of cheating because they play PC yet the vast majority don't
