The ammount of hackers in this game is unbelievable
From people no clipping into the wall to shoot you from behind, to superman jumpers and aimbotters. Not to mention those ESP'rs. Never have I seen so many hackers in a game, it's disgusting... especially a game where dying means losing everything you have on you

I will agree that hackers are starting to get out of control again.

I thought I saw somewhere that they turned punkbuster off? Not 100% sure on that.


But I will say that hackers are back in force.

if you see a hacker / cheater, hack/cheat, report them
http://forums.infestationmmo.com/index.php?/forum/22-hacker-reportdiscussion/

as of this post there is no working pb bypass for this game.

and pb cant be turned off successfully. and i will explain why pb is not just something that runs on the client. you can think that you are turning it off and you can think you are getting away with it, but your not. the pb server side is quietly flagging you trying to bypass pb. do it enough times and you will be warned/kicked. ignore that and you will be banned for bypassing pb.

if you go to pb website/wiki you can learn more how pb works behind the scene and why its very difficult to bypass pb. so even if you do manage to, it will only be temporarily and you will be caught soon enough. here read a little bit about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PunkBuster

just head on over to pbbans/vacbans and even look at ff feeds, not just from this game, but other games as well and you see cheaters getting caught all the time and then having to live with the consequences which for pb can be severe since they can ban you from this game, from every pb game, they can ban your ip, your machine and even the components of your machine. so cheats can have fun while it lasts, but it wont last forever and it may end up being very expensive.

sure i guess people can still download and run hacks, but because there is no working pb bypass they will be flagged, after repeated violations kicked.

and worse many hacks/cheats that they get come with malware, rootkits, trojans, viruses, backdoors and other surprises that they didn't expect. i guess when you get in bed with hackers/crooks and theives what else can you expect.

even the paid hacks are not working so well and being cause. mostly because the game is updated so frequently that they cant keep up and users fail to keep updating the hacks. which is so funny hearing them complain about the requency of updates.

just search the web you will find where the hackers live and how they are all just complaining

and sure there are glitches that people exploit, but fairfight is catching them to.

just keep in mind that pb/ff does delayed bans. that means they may not ban you immediately. they may man you minutes, hours, days, weeks or even month laters.

pb/ff slowly collect information and at some point its unrefutable. so smile for the screenshots , your on candid camera as you play ;)

sure there are bugs that can result in people getting wrongfully banned, but they can appeal it, and as its happened in the past eventually its found to be a bug, the bug is fixed and people are unbanned.

and does pb/ff catch everybody 100% of the time. no, but eventually people make mistakes forget to update the hacks and they get caught and banned. you can see them posting away here and at sites having to do with hacking. and you can see their threads being locked, deleted.

the people who create hacks dont much like hearing from unhappy customers it appears more than game developers like to hear form their unhappy customers... so while members are tolerated here, they are not there, once they have your money who are you going to complain to when minutes, hours, days, weeks, even months later you find that you've been banned... i guess you can come here, since you won't be doing it there... cause they only like happy customers posting... it keeps sales going of their garbage... ;)

but this is not unique to this game same with just about other game that uses pb. ea/dice uses a combination of pb/ff with battlefield 3 series and you see just about the same. so i dont think at this point there is much more they can do with the existing technologies that exist.

The root of this is the cash shop.
hackers have stocked up on $3 accounts, even keys at 20cents some places, and play two or three days before getting banned, many with paid hacks don't get banned at all.
you buy all that stuff in the cash shop for the GC, hackers take it when they aimbot or noclip you, sell it for GC or real $$$ to certain traders who sell it back to legit players for GC or real $$$ and on it goes.
Hackers have run riot in this game since day 1 of alpha last year, long before it was on steam.
All MMOs have hackers, any game with a cash shop attracts hackers. Some make pocket change out of it, some can make decent money.
A lot of these are not just kids cheating because they "cant play", so don't be fooled by that every time.
Its crime. And if you actually think hammerpoint care one iota, they are more than happy to sell hackers another account, and another and another, they always have been, and they always will be.
Hackers spoiling the game is nothing new.
The anti cheat has never been any good, and never will be. You are always going to get hacked in any game, and this game is worse because its a full-loot-loss and there's real $$$ attatched to the loot you lose.

and no, I'm not "hating" against the game. Its the developers and the cash shop and the hacking situation which they perpetuate.
for $3 its probably worh playing if it wasn't for hackers and the ridiculous cash shop.
