Last week, Eurogamer revealed how Call of Duty players on console were disabling crossplay in order to escape cheaters on PC. But it turns out not all console players have this option.
Much was made of Call of Duty’s new crossplay feature when it was confirmed – and with good reason. For the first time friends could play Activision’s blockbuster shooter across platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players all matchmaking together. Crossplay means a larger playerbase, quicker matchmaking and full lobbies. It’s fantastic – in principle.
Every game has some element of cheating, of course, and no publisher or developer can eradicate it from their game. But with the launch of the standalone and free battle royale Warzone, cheating in Call of Duty ramped up – especially on PC. And so console players looked for answers.
