Call of Duty: Warzone fans are unhappy with the level of cheating that is going on in the game, so much so they are now calling for the PC cross-play option to be removed completely.
Cross play has always sparked concerns with players and now it seems that the mixing of PC and console users is getting out of hand.
When cross play was first introduced to games, there was an obvious concern that PC users may have the upper hand when playing while using a mouse and keyboard however it seems that the main concern today is cheating.
Cheating is much easier to carry out on PC rather than console, so much so that fans are now calling for a console only cross play option as players have branded Warzone ‘unplayable’.
Reddit user ‘Sec0nd’ took to the platform to share their concerns and suggest that a console only cross play option e temporarily added tot he game.
The post read “The hacking is currently so bad. Every other game is just infested with cheaters, both obvious and people trying to hide it.”
Sec0nd went on to say “Apparently getting an anti-cheat is hard, so at least enable some sort of console-only cross-play. As just a temporary solution. The game is literally unplayable at the moment. We’ve seen moments in Warzone where cheating was rampant, but this time it feels like we’re just outnumbered.”
“I’ve pretty much played the game daily since launch, yet now I’m looking to play something else until it’s fixed.”
The post was soon met with hundred of comments from other player with many being quick to agree however others didn’t think this acton would be such a good idea.
One user said “Cheating on consoles would be such a hassle and cumbersome for a larger majority that it’s really not an issue atm. Security is always about impeding, because it’s a constant cat and mouse game where no foolproof solution exists. Instead, you then opt to make it as much of a hassle as possible for threat actors to gain access.”
Another said “Yep, it’s like people think everyone with a PC cheats. Nah, most of us don’t all of us pc players who don’t cheat fucking despise cheaters.”
While a third said “But 90% of cheaters are on PC so disabling cross-play with PC would benefit consoles, i play on both but it’s annoying playing against cheaters in most pc lobbies, when i’m on my ps5 there’s none since i can just turn cross play off, xbox vs ps would be better for the game, people can always just connect their mouse and keyboard if they want.”
Of course if there was a no PC cross play option, the number of available players for PC users would significantly decrease which would ruin the game for genuine fans.
It is unclear if Activision plan on taking an action on this, it looks like fans will just have to wait and see.
