'COD: Warzone' Players Call For Console-Only Crossplay As PC Cheaters Make Game "Unplayable"

Call Of Duty: Warzone players are once again demanding console-only crossplay as the battle royale experiences yet another surge in PC cheaters.

Activision's free-to-play shooter launched last year with a built-in crossplay feature that allowed PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC users to play together. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series owners have since been able to get in on the fun too. This is a great idea on paper, bringing players together regardless of platform. The reality, unfortunately, has been rather less successful.

Since launch, console players have been choosing to disable the crossplay function because of the alarming number of cheaters on PC. PC tends to be the best platform for hackers, as cheating software is typically much easier to track and fight on consoles. Despite Activision's best efforts (and hundreds of thousands of banned accounts), PC cheaters just keep coming - and console players are sick of it.

While turning off crossplay on console is a solution for PlayStation and Xbox fans who don't want to risk running into hackers, that also blocks the possibility of cross-console play. That's why the community is now calling for Activision to "save the console community" by introducing console-only crossplay, although they stress this should be a "temporary fix" so as not to alienate the many, many PC players who don't cheat.

"The hacking is currently so bad," wrote Reddit user Sec0nd in a post that has already attracted nearly 3k upvotes. "Every other game is just infested with cheaters, both obvious and people trying to hide it.

"Apparently getting an anti-cheat is hard, so at least enable some sort of console-only cross-play. As just a temporary solution. The game is literally unplayable at the moment. We've seen moments in Warzone where cheating was rampant, but this time it feels like we're just outnumbered."

While many players absolutely agree that this should be a temporary solution, others fear it could kill off the Warzone community on PC. Blocking all PC players from playing with their friends on console would be a bit much, and is essentially locking thousands of innocents players in with the hackers. That's not so much fixing the problem as it is ignoring it. But as Sec0nd argued, this would be a temporary solution until Activision can do something more permanent with the hackers.

The only real issue there is that Warzone has been out for nearly a year and a half, and those cheaters just aren't going away.
