Why So Much Call of Duty: Vanguard Cheating?

There's more from Tom Henderson, as the Call of Duty spy tweets an explanation of why there are so many cheaters to be found in the Call of Duty: Vanguard beta test. Apparently anti-cheat technology works flawlessly enough that it doesn't need to be tested:
For those wondering why there's so many hackers in the #Vanguard Beta, it's because the Beta is using the exact same anti-cheat as Warzone (which has been compromised).

New anti-cheat will be coming once Vanguard releases, but it's definitely concerning seeing so many hackers.

Back in the day, these types of games had private dedicated servers. Which not only had their own custom scripts, gameplay modes etc. they had dedicated admins who perused logs and frequently banned cheaters. It was a pleasure to play on them as the better ones frequently developed whole little communities all unto themselves.

The beta is dull

Any semblance of people trying to actually be good at games legitimately seems to be long gone, especially in the FPS genre.

Good luck with the anti-cheat efforts though! I'm foolishly hoping that BF2042 cheating isn't too bad, but it will probably be ridiculously high.
At least with the new BF there's offline vs. bots if you want to avoid cheaters. Here's to hoping that they're good bots and configurable, a la UT.

Here's to hoping it scratches my AIX2 itch.
Yeah, but bots 'cheat' because all of the actions are scripted, and it analyzes the engine directly.

Same problem with AI cars in offline racing. The humam driver may not have ABS or TC and has to interpret the cars momentum, but AI only works through scripts that avoid traction loss, tire lockups. Worse, often AI drivers squeeze the human by closing the physical gap and maintaining it with uncanny accuracy. In an FPS, thats as unnatural as a bot coming around a corner and is already aiming directly at me because its 'wal hacking'

Offline bots are as uninteresting to me as an online lobby with a cheater.

I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.

This is exactly why I have not bought a CoD of Battlefield game since BF3 like 10 years ago.

Why would people be so stupid as to buy a multiplayer game where there's so much cheating.

Why???
