Publishing powerhouse Activision has begun taking action against cheat software that allows players to score easy kills, which has recently expanded to consoles. We reported on it earlier in the week, using Call of Duty: Warzone as an example of how the software basically does all the donkey work for you.
The software was originally flagged up by ACPD, and has since revealed that Activision is aware of the console version of cheat program and is working to take the down. Here’s a description of what it’s all about in case you missed it:
The cheat uses machine learning and sends input to your controller whenever it sees a valid target. This is aim assist but more amplified without you even needing to do anything all you have to do is aim in the general area and the machine will do the work for you.
Activision has already started shutting down the videos advertising the cheat program on YouTube, although it’s still available to purchase. However, it’s at least confirmation that the company is taking action.
Cheating has obviously been a major problem for PC players for years now, although it’s started to gain a lot more traction on consoles in recent times, too. Games like Call of Duty in particular are full of players resorting to unscrupulous methods to win battles, which ruins the experience for legit gamers.
