Cheaters Interrupting CoD: Vanguard Matches is A New Level of Audacity

Call of Duty: Vanguard has only recently become available in open beta, and problems with cheaters have already been reported. It turns out they can use a certain exploit to interrupt matches at any time they wish.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Open beta of Call of Duty: Vanguard is plagued by cheaters;
  2. It turns out that they can not only use traditional methods, but also end a match at a time of their choosingl
  3. The situation was reported by a Twitter user, and a similar case happened to the popular streamer xQc.

We've alreadyreported on the plague of cheaters who didn't want to wait until the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard to spoil the fun for others. It turns out that the list of problems created by the cheaters includes not only the classics like aimbots and wallhacks, but also the disturbing ability to interrupt the game at any time.

The first time this type of situation was noticed by a Twitter by the handle EasyStomps, who had an interesting conversation with one of the cheaters:

A short video shows that the suspected player, immediately after being accused of cheating, said: "I'm ending the game". However, this did not mean that will leave the server ashamed. After the cheater's statement, the match ended early for all players, most likely because of him.

A similar situation occurred during the broadcast of popular Twitch.tv streamer Felix "xQc" Lenyel. The streamer joined the meeting, in which, as it turned out, he came across the same players who cheated in previous games with him. One of the cheaters decided to end the match before it even started for good.

This would mean that some kind of external software or exploit enables them to end matches in CoD: Vanguard at any time. Sledgehammer Games has extended the open beta until September 22, so it's possible that more footage of players having the "power" to end matches will surface during the final days.

The release of Call of Duty: Vanguard is scheduled on November 5 (on PC, PS4, PS5, XOne and XSX|S). Hopefully by then the developers will have found a way to patch up their security measures.
