Just a few hours in, the Modern Warfare 3 PS4 open beta has been flooded with cheaters.

Modern Warfare 3 is in the middle of an open beta exclusive to PlayStation players. The beta covers plenty of ground, showing fans what comes next in the storied Call of Duty franchise.

“And cod players blamed PC crossplay for cheats. PS was the issue all along” responded one Twitter user.

Another player commented in defense of PlayStation players “Nah for Warzone and ranked play it’s only the pc players this is the first time I’ve seen ps4 actually doing something.”
