The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta is now live for PlayStation 4 players with early access. A lot can change before the game's November 13th release date, but there's one part of the beta that isn't sitting right with players: its use of skill-based matchmaking. A number of players have taken to social media to share their unhappiness with the feature, leading to "SBMM" trending on social media. Whether or not these matchmaking issues will exist in the final build of the game remains to be seen, but it's clear that a number of players are not happy with the current setup.
