Wow. Hackers?
One person in game. Named Mewget was clearly hacking. A hack that enabled her to see everyone everywhere. What annoys me is that she is not the first. I also encountered one KandB using some sort of "see through walls" hack. Plus the amount of laggers is horrendous. Anyone else seen this idioticy or is it just me?

The multiplayer is absolute garbage. Just played a few games and it seriously needs fixing. It feels like something they used to just ♥♥♥♥ about with the characters, jumping, firing weapons etc and whacked it in as "multiplayer".

A downed player becomes invincible from 3 clips of any weapon and fire... UNLESS you run up to him (suicide run, because they can just gun you down in 2-3 shots) and hack at his body with the action key. I'm so glad the singleplayer was as fun as it is.

Yep. Plus with the hacks runnin around now. Whats the point...

On some maps there is actually a feature that will allow you to see everyone on the map with their names highlighted (Big Bell at the Chasm etc.). Just throwing this out there before you accuse people of cheating.

Well it was not such. It was some sort of always. even without the big bell on chasm.

you can unlock a flare gun at lvl 50 which unveils the position of oppenents at target area, but i don´t say it could´t be a cheat, ppl shot me trough walls already or spawned next to me, if i would be in their team. Maybe its a bug, but suspicious also. Saw a lvl1 dude who killed everyone with oneshot too, doesn´t matter how far away his targets are, with the standart Ak offcourse.

I've played with Mewget quite a bit, I don't think he hacks. He's pretty good, but I'm learning his tricks :)

I've played about 11 hours of MP so far (level 35). Haven't noticed anyone cheating.

Although sometimes wondered if people thought I was - a few rounds I've been at 12 or so kills and zero or one deaths. Including one fantastic moment where someone sneaked up on me with a shottie from behind, somehow didn't kill me and i turned round and killed them with a pistol.

I'm not cheating, nor intending to show off (people kick my ♥♥♥ a lot too). But point is, people much better than you can look like they're cheating, even if they aren't.

Being shot behind walls...perhaps you (or they) are lagging - so you actually got hit when they could see you and only felt it when behind a wall. This does happen.

Point being; I expect some people are cheating, they do in pretty much every game. Just wanted to point out some experience I've had, which didn't include anyone [at all] cheating.

Also, I'm really quite enjoying it...

im lvl 52 and playing mp all day, im high ranked also (played more then 50 hours mp already)
it was no lag, they shot trough walls. If it would be a lag they couldnt do it all of the time at the same position, but they did. You could see the bullets flying trough the walls either.

@linn4you - fair enough, possibly a map glitch they discovered, but that seems less likely than hacking in your case. hopefully they get banned, but unlikel as (afaik) there's no VAC and no dedicated servers (we host games, with host migration if we quit - i know you know this already, but in case anyone else is reading).

hopefully the hackers remain few and far between...

Saw suspicious person yesterday too. Idk if you get Lara for mp if you buy the collectors edition for 130$ but there was a lvl 29 dude hwo played with lara or was it a dev? Player profile said 2100 kills but only 300k exp. Maybe his exp got a reset, but after 6 matches with him i figured out that he dont have much experince in playing mp, i cant believe that he was 60 already. He didnt played with high lvl equip either, used lvl 20 items.He got a coronal around his name , never saw that before. He got less achievements trials and survival feats then me too. What do you guys think about that?
I only saw 3 ppl hwo definatly used hacks yet, not many so.

There is Prestige, which resets level and upgrades/etc. I don't know if it also nukes all the XP - so it could be valid...

Oh - and if you're going for the Shopaholic achievement its best NOT to buy upgrades until you've prestiged twice (so, twice to lvl 60) as they get lost - save the salvage for the 3rd run.

it could be he's just not good, but has far far far too much time on his hands...

or cheating...
linn4you Mar 12, 2013 @ 5:18am 
He played 82 hours so far, its prestige then, i guess. It would match with all of his player stats.

also in case anyone didn't see it in game; Lara for MP is an unlock at level 60, for 10,000 salvage.
Nate Mc Bow Mar 12, 2013 @ 9:11am 
Well hacks are not so easy to find. but there are alot of times where the gap between lag and hacks is so thin. Laggers act like hackers sumtimes. like this one guy. I shot the living hell out of him, (like 10 arrows and two pistol mags) in him while he was AFK or something. NO DAMAGE. not sure what that was all about.

This games weapon balance is terrible. Solarii weapons are infinitely better. Also pistols are the best weapons in the game, the magnum is a 1 hit kill if headshot. I've played plenty of games where i butchered multiple people in a single firefight with a pistol. Most people run around with an AR and spray expecting to get kills.
