As soon as the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War PC Beta came out, cheaters began to dominate the entire game. The players that participate in the Beta start to get angry about it.
Console players turn off cross-play to escape the Cold War Beta cheaters
As most of you know, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is now on a Beta phase across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this week, with cross-play enabled. And cheaters already start to ruin the game for the players. Even the cheaters start to advertise their cheating/hacking programs.
This is actually not a surprise, as Activision is dealing with this issue since the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone. Since then, not a specific solution has been found for the cheaters out there, except Activision banning the cheaters. But it looks like console players have found their own solution about this cheating situation in Cold War Beta. The solution is simple: They disable the cross-play feature in order to not play with PC gamers around there.
However, disabling the cross-play solution is a temporary solution and it affects the gameplay experience. Many console players claim that when they turn off the cross-play feature, they won’t be able to find players to play with. It is not certain what Activision will do about this situation, but we are sure that players are not happy with it.
There are many players in the game that activate the cheats/hacks while they play the Cold War Open Beta. And there are even some footages recorded by other players that play the game. As you can clearly see on the video above, a player is using an aimbot program. Players grant themselves some kills with these cheating programs called aimbots. And it definitely ruins the gameplay.
