If you’re hoping to escape the Warzone cheaters by moving over to Battlefield 2042, you might want to think again. At least, thats what a cheat seller reckons anyway.
Cheaters have been plaguing many of the top FPS games recently. Cheat websites have made it even easier for players to get their hands on cheats by offering a simple subscription style service causing a huge surge in the amount of people using them.
Now, before the game is even released, hacks have already been made available for Battlefield 2042, and people are allegedly lining up to be the first to get their hands on wall hacks, aim bots, and radar cheats.
Industry insider Tom Henderson spoke with a cheat seller who shared their thoughts on some of the cheats already on offer on cheat websites.
“Yeah, that game is f**ked,” he said. “We have seen a 400% rise in website traffic and sign-ups in August over July, with a large amount of that coming from BF 2042 searches.”
There has been no word from EA regarding any type of anti-cheat system to combat the wave of cheaters set to cause havoc in Battlefield upon its release.
This news comes at the same time as Activision’s announcement that the next Call of Duty game will arrive with anti-cheat which will also be implemented in Warzone. News so big that Activision are actually using anti-cheat to promote the next Call of Duty: Warzone map.
Tom Henderson isn’t the only one raising the alarm, Watchdog group Anti-Cheat Police Department have also voiced their concern over on Twitter. Writing the game “will just end up like COD Warzone”
Battlefield 2042 is set for release on October 22, which doesn’t allow much time for EA to figure out how they’re going to combat this.
Luckily for console players, they will have the option to disable cross-platform play to avoid the cheaters on PC. Xbox Series and PS5 players will have the option to play against each other as well as against players on PC, whereas players on the older consoles, PS4 and Xbox One will only be able to play with other players on the same generation of console.
Thankfully, another game by EA is taking combating cheating seriously as Apex Legends have announced more measures to combat cheaters in the game. Hopefully we will see the same with Battlefield, but for now we’ll have to wait and see.
