COD Cold War scoffs at dataminers with the internet's oldest trick

COD Cold War scoffs at dataminers with the internet's oldest trick
Datamining has long been an established reality within the videogame world. Many players, possessing the relevant knowledge and technical skills, go in search of information hidden in game codes. It happens for example with Fortnite, practically on a weekly basis, and now it is also happening with COD Cold War, available in beta format. However, the developers have decided to scoff at dataminers with the internet's oldest trick. What are we talking about?

As you can see below, in the Nova tweet, the developers of COD Cold War have included a series of links to the classic “Rick Roll”, which they sent us to “never give up”. The links are linked to a series of files that mention "seasonal configurations", "God Mod", "configuration of loot boxes" (very serious topic, which we talked about today) and "configurations of microtransactions".

Fun fact: looking through the COD Cold War .exe, you will find a couple Rick Roll links 🙂

This is a very fun way to tell COD Cold War dataminers that the development team knows they are investigating the files and won't always find what they want.

Dataminin is a more than effective practice and has recently also brought out a zombie mode in Call of Duty Warzone, for example. Furthermore, in the case of Fortnite, datamining becomes an almost obligatory practice, given that Epic Games has stopped releasing an official patch notes for some time now.

Activision and Treyarch have also been very clever to make this joke to the dataminer: the news is in fact making the rounds of the internet and slowly everyone will talk about it, advertising the game even more.

We remind you that COD Cold War will be available from November 13 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. An upgrade version will also be released for Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5.

You can pre-order Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War on Amazon Italy.
