Online video games often suffer from cheating problems. In games like Call of Duty and Counter-Strike, dying from a cheater every round can cause frustration.

The same thing happened with the owner of the esports organization 100 Thieves, Nadeshot. The CoD Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) recently saw the addition of ranked mode. With this, everyone was back on the grind to reach the top ranks.

However, many players opt to cheat their way up, ruining the game for everyone. Like many others, Nadeshot is no stranger to cheaters and has been frustrated by them.

Nadeshot urges for better anti-cheat

After the developers of the game posted an update for the Ricochet anti-cheat, one of the cod news outlets posted an image. Nadeshot expressed his disappointment in the anti-cheat and urged the devs to fix it.

In his reply, Nadeshot said, “Call of Duty, I love you. I love all the bundles and customization that we’ve gotten this year, despite most people's complaints. I buy them all. But for real, Ricochet is absolutely terrible and regardless of data shared with the community, it’s not working.”

He says that he’s happy with the content and other things in the game, however, it is always the cheaters that ruin the fun. Furthermore, he also talks about implementing high tike rate servers. “Fix anti-cheat, this should be the biggest priority you have internally. Then invest in higher tick rate servers,” he further added.

With CoD being one of the yearly franchises, it is not secrete that a new CoD game is coming. Before that, Nadeshot believes that the company should focus on the cheater situation a little more, else everything will be the same for the next release.
