Get rid of Punkbuster
Get a other anti-cheat, cause the current one is ♥♥♥♥

Whenever i have a bad latency, Punkbuster accuses me of non-existant speed hacking

Many people share this same problem, it doesn't matter how much you update it, you'll always lose the key packets and won't get to finish a single match

So they should end the contract with the existing, most reputable anti cheat system around and spend money switching to another because...your internet isn't good enough?

Yeah seriously, kid. Getting rid of Punkbuster, and going with a lesser company is like dropping a knife on your foot. It would hurt the overall community with a massive flood of exploiters. What you should do instead, is post a Trouble thread with your system spec, internet speeds, whether your going through a family router/direct to modem(DTM) and possibly what software you are using eg ex Windows default firewall, antivirus with realtime scanning.
And possibly remedy you speed problems from the modem to PC.
Oh and rough location/state and serverhost
I've used PunkBuster for years now, and i've only run into that problem once, and it was just it needed updating(actually re-installing from Mainwebsite)

There's no need to call me a kid when my age is clear
And i do want to say that i don't get myself why punkbuster is doing this
Heck, it works fine in most of the Punkbuster games i played so why suddenly not on just 2 games?

I've had this problem too, and I have a very good connection. All of my other steam games work just fine, it's just been this one. I even created a second account just to make sure it wasn't that account and it still showed up

Same here i can't even get into the game because of "connection issues" when my internet speed is the bomb and he wouldnt even let me have my own game so what is the piont?

I did have punkbuster verification issues when I tried installing the game...took me about 3-5 times of opening the game before it let me in entirely...

You've got intermitent packet loss occuring. The game doesn't handle it well and it thinkis you are speed hacking. Its a known bug but that is the cause, I was having trouble with my connection and that issue popped up almost every round. After I got the issue worked out I haven't had the issues in months.

Hello everyone, I’m posting this as an FYI to anyone having problems with Punkbuster and possibly any steam app. My experience deals with:

Punkbuster: V2.315|A1375
Bullet Run: update 1.1.120
Steam: build jan 30 2013 @ 13:05:03, API v012, package version 1359591825/1359591825.

I installed Bullet Run through Steam a few days ago and had played it several times without problem. I had played BR as a stand-alone for several months without issue; however, I use Steam as a portal for most of my games and wanted to add BR to my library as it is directly supported in the Steam environment. Thursday (1/30) when I fired up BR I was kicked from the game with the message “Punkbuster kicked (my_in_game_name) (for 2 minutes) in violation (Aimbot) #50730” after just a few minutes of actual play.

I was on Team Speak with my gaming team, all running BR via Steam and none of them experienced the kick. So, what follows is a list of actions I took to try and resolve the problem:
Ran pbsetup (Punk Buster stand-alone installer), PBSVC (Punk Busters updater), removed BR from Steam (and all user content) and reinstalled. Removed the Team Speak overlay, the Steam overlay, and all antivirus, stopped all resident drivers for my mouse and keyboard, closed down all remaining TSR such as Nvidia, printers, fitbit tracker; all proved to change nothing.

I found an old thread where Battle Field had a conflict with PB in the Steam environment, so I, once again, removed BR from Steam and all of my user content and did a “stand-alone” install. That worked and I was able to join the game without getting kicked.
My conclusion is that there is a conflict when running BR via Steam with PB. I don’t know what caused the false positive, but I will be playing BR outside of Steam from here on out.
