Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was just released and players already found an exploit, allowing to abuse game mechanics and gain in-game advantage.

First to notice that was Reddit user Sleeper_ who demonstrated how you can hide behind a low wall and look around using Sitting Bull emote. Here’s how it looks like:
Treyarch were fast to respond, taking the discussion to their sub-Reddit. Describing first launch day in detail, developers took their time to talk about upcoming fixes and changes. The response also touched upon this specific exploit:
We’re aware that players have been able to use Gestures (often referred to by the community as “Emotes”) to peek around corners in modes where that can create an unfair advantage.
The planned fix will introduce a new system that “disables free look and applies different camera settings to prevent using it to see around corners” in competitive mode. The default system “will be used in parts of the game where corner peeking won’t affect gameplay balance (like the staging area of Blackout)” the statement concludes.
