Call of Duty 4 PC Multiplayer Wide Open to Cheaters


The PC version of Call of Duty 4 is easily susceptible to game-breaking exploits, its developer confirmed.

An Infinity Ward community forum moderator acknowledged the existence of a multiplayer exploit in a posting earlier this week.

The exploit allows any individual player to enter any available cheat through a console command, “sv_cheats,” lending an overwhelming advantage against other players.

Some of the cheats include enabling a third-person view, seeing all players on the map, and choosing any weapons configuration.

A temporary solution involves manually entering values into PunkBuster, but the developer is working on a patch to correct the issue.
