The cheaters
So, is anything actively being done to prevent this?

Just had 2 games in a row where a guy called Panty_Pink would join up and teleport around the place killing people in melee or with magnum fire from 200 yards away - while floating around in the air.. :(

I wouldn't go as far as to call it broken. It was fine until he joined..

I have only been messing around with multiplayer for a couple of days, not that far into the level system either but I have seen too much lag, warping, people who do not die and warp around the map and kill you, could be lag but walking around a corner and instant headshotted from some people with weapons, I have burst fired the assault rifle into people who just shoot me 3 times with the pistol and kill me from stupid distances.

I do not think this game has any anti cheat protection not even VAC, considering how terrible the P2P netcode of the game is I shall not be buying the MP map packs I may buy some of the single player skins since I enjoy playing it (third time through higher difficulties each time)

@Sneaky
Pistol WILL kill you with a headshot, especially Solarii "Magnum". Takes one shot only. And even, as you put it, "from stupid distances". That has nothing to do with cheating.
Lags, on the other hand, can be horrible at times.

Lag causes some weird "invincibility" issues. Not sure exactly how it happens something about being disconnected from a previous game or something. But sometimes its not always cheating, but majority of the time it probably is.

But yeah people have been cheating since day 1. And as far as I know they aren't really doing anything against it. Sadly a lot of other games that have such multiplayer systems that aren't the main game don't get moderated as much as they could.

The fact that high level players can play with lower level players makes one shotting and other things even more common though.

I feel that a majority of the rulesets in this game is almost too loose. But if its not this way then it would be even harder to get multiplayer games. Even if you leave games with cheaters chances are they'll end up in your next game.

A user called Mothra has unlimited granades. Some good players worked together and got this cheater a few times though

I just started multiplayer last night, just to get a feel for it. I usually don't play multiplayer games because you're stuck either with cheaters or being constantly blown away by people 20 or 30 levels above you, and last night was no exception. I'll never understand the satisfaction a person gets by winning a match when he's level 40 and most everybody else is in the single digits - what exactly did he just prove to anyone?

I also don't understand why developers haven't figured out that a lot of people are driven away by this, especially when the fix is so simple - just set up some servers dedicated to level groups. You could have some servers that only allow up to level 10, and others just for levels 10-30, then 30-60, then servers for all levels, or however you want to break it down. Then inexperienced people could comfortably play the low-level servers until they get enough experience to actually compete against higher-level people. After that just address the cheating and I think you'd fix most of the problems.

Lag in the game makes some people invincible eventually the whole match breaks nobody can kill each other and you are forced to quit....

I saw Mothra in the Multi player again. He can teleport to you and kill you with melee attack. I am getting out of the game as soon as I see that name in a session.

Maybe these people are trying to raise their self-esteem?

Anti cheat needed

I thought VAC was supposed to take care of this? Have you reported the guy to Steam?

You won't BELIEVE the pain he has caused EVERYONE in the matches. He's got the 14th worldwide rank! I've reported him twice though but I don't think anything is being done about it.
