Modern Warfare 2019 players are frustrated with hackers ruining matches with DDoS attacks and are urging the developers to improve the game’s anti-cheat measures.

Despite being two years old and CoD: Vanguard releasing during that time, Modern Warfare continues to remain extremely popular with a strong player base. However, the game has its fair share of issues.

One major problem that plagues Call of Duty titles is cheaters. Modern Warfare players are frustrated with hackers ruining matches and are calling for the developers to improve their anti-cheat measures.

Reddit user ‘AngryWack’ claimed that they’re quitting Modern Warfare 2019 because of the game’s cheater problem. They encountered multiple hackers who proceeded to ruin different matches.

Two hackers aim-botted the player and another one hit the server with a DDoS attack just for fun. This led to the Redditor becoming fed up with the state of the game and another commenter shared this sentiment:

“Wait for MW2 and uninstall MW 2019 if you don’t want to play it anymore. Trust me, I did the same and I am VERY happy that I did because this game took my sanity, patience, and good times.”

DDoS attacks can make a game impossible to enjoy, so it’s completely understandable why Modern Warfare 2019 players are calling for the developers to counter this with improved anti-cheat measures.

Players are so frustrated with the hacker problem in Modern Warfare that some of the commenters suggested trying out other Call of Duty titles like Black Ops Cold War as an alternative.

The issue of cheaters and hackers is something that the CoD devs take seriously. Warzone’s RICOCHET anti-cheat system was implemented in response to this problem, and it has helped improve the game.
