The launch version of Call of Duty: WW2 on PC will have a “suite of anti-cheat/hacking” tech

Call of Duty: WW2 developers Sledgehammer, and Raven are working to act on the feedback players submitted during the PC beta, and chief among the concerns was cheating.

During the Call of Duty: WW2 PC beta, reports of rampant hacking and cheating made the rounds online. I didn’t personally run into any cheaters, and greatly enjoyed my time with the beta.

That said, Call of Duty PC ports have a long history of cheating and hacking problems, especially whenever peer-to-peer is used. In response to the feedback, Sledgehammer penned a blog post detailing some of the items that will be changed come launch.

According to the post, the beta didn’t actually have the anti-cheat measures that will be used in the release version. Hopefully this means the company is sitting on a proper solution for the problem, though their absence could explain why cheaters appeared quickly after the beta went live.

Some of the other minor points raised concern the game menus and a few options players like to see. As a result, the release version should have scroll bars in menus long enough to support it, an easier way of exiting the game, improvements to the party UI and more.


Here’s the full list:

  • Scroll bars on options that scroll.
  • Allow numerical entry to mouse and controller sensitivity options (in addition to slider).
  • Streamline the exit of the game.
  • Clearly indicate being in Party status in UI.
  • Making the resolution options more clear and consistent.
  • Video option video memory indicator.
  • Warnings about video memory over-commitment.
  • Option to bind lean left/right keys in multiplayer.

Call of Duty: WW2 is out November 3 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
