i have played a little over 30 hours so far and i have yet to meet or at least notice a hacker. i haven't encountered a single obvious hacker and if there was a non-obvois one he at least wasn't a problem or even affected my experience negatively. i have seen a youtube video of a very obvious aimbotter though, so hacks seem to exist.

Thanks guys...looks like i'll be buying it then :)

Hackers happen, Ive certainly had my run ins with them, but they are not terribly common unless the hackers are deliberately following you. Ruining the game? Not at all. At the end of the day, they are a bunch of sadly obsessed, guileless schmucks.

I haven't seen many, just a couple notable ones.

I have 29 hours played. I haven't seen anything suspicious yet.

I must've been playing a different game then.

Just buy it mate, this is one hell of a game. Like in any other online game, some people just cry "hacks" whenever they're killed.

I remember seeing a youtube vid but that was for the insurgency mod.

I have encountered none, myself.
By the way, don't always take somebody's word for it if they claim somebody's cheating. More often than not, the player is simply skillful and the person who called it is just buttflustered that they got mowed down by someone more proficient at the game than they.

That said, people are always more likely to be vocal about something or someone's shortcomings, whether they be actual or a figment of one's own delusion, than they are to praise them for their good attributes. Take any and all subject matter with a grain of salt.

25 hours played here and no hackers at all.

Luckily cod kids haven't already discovered the potential of this game.

Hackers exist, have measures taken against them, and then move on to more open pastures.

If you need proof, well, search my Steam name in Youtube sometime. If you must.

There were a few blatant ones early-on. Either Steam or NWI has resolved the problem as I haven't seen one in weeks.

I'm not sure what kind of point you're trying to prove with my post but okay.

I have encountered 3 hackers. 2 were using the namechange hack and killing everyone by spamming LMGs through walls getting headshots. A recent patch addressed that situation. The most recent hacker I encountered was simply using an aimbot. He was on my team and 1 shot headshotting enemies with no effort at all. Other than that, the game's integrity is pretty intact.

Haven't noticed any. all I play is co-Op though.

I imagine they'd get weeded out pretty fast since when people die they are able to spectate other players on their team.
