The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta is already being plagued by cheaters

History is also repeating itself in the case of cheaters in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta.

The beta, now open to all platforms, is being plagued by cheaters, while console players are starting to turn off crossplay again to avoid ending up in a matchmaking pool with PC.

A similar thing happened before with the Call of Duty Vanguard and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War betas.

As can be seen from clips on Twitter, cheaters are already using wallhacks and aimbots, so they can see through walls or hit with every shot.

There are also clips circulating on platforms like TikTok that direct players to platforms where they can buy such hacks.

What about Ricochet?

The fact that all of this is happening before the official launch of Modern Warfare 2 doesn’t exactly bode well, especially since the anti-cheat software Ricochet has been further improved.

Introduced to Warzone and Vanguard, Ricochet uses server-side tools to identify cheaters. Ricochet also looks for cheaters at the kernel level.

Just two weeks ago, Activision emphasized that Ricochet was “upgraded and improved” for Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0.

Ultimately, as it currently appears, not that much should change if hacks and cheats are already available quickly in the beta. Hopefully Infinity Ward gets the situation under control.
