One of these aspects is the influx of cheaters, bug exploiters and hackers that have been diminishing the mode’s success. However, the Doc expressed the urgency of addressing this matter recently on social media before Halo Infinite ends up like Warzone.
Dr Disrespect believes Halo Infinite is a good game, but worries about cheating
In light of Halo Infinite’s successful open-beta launch, which has received critical praise from the community, the game is more than likely to encounter a few problems as such. However, when those issues include hacking and cheating, it should become a high-priority problem that needs to be fixed.
The game has certainly impressed Dr Disrespect; however, past experiences of bumping into cheaters and hackers in the battle royale game, Call of Duty: Warzone is a sight that all are familiar with. The Doc may not be the only streamer that has faced this problem head-on; he worries that if 343 Industries aren’t careful about the game, it could potentially get out of control quite similarly to Warzone.
He expressed this concern on Twitter, pleading for Microsoft to pay attention to the cheating problem in Halo Infinite before it’s too late. “Cheating in Halo is a scary thing to think about,” the Doc wrote.

If it gets out of control like Warzone, everyone is gonna question everything and then it turns into this huge hackusation movement nobody wants.
Microsoft.... give us some relief. It's such a good game.
“If it gets out of control like Warzone, everyone is gonna question everything, and then it turns into this huge hackusation movement nobody wants,” he continues to elaborate.
Whether the developers and Microsoft have taken note of the Doc’s concerns has yet to be determined; however, the problem needs to be addressed at least before Halo Infinite’s campaign mode that launches next month.
The reputation of the series remains at risk due to the surge of cheating and hacking in Halo Infinite. The developers must resolve the problem if they wish for its competitive esports scene to return soon.
