Tips on how to spot and avoid cheaters
While Overkill recently added a few in game checks that trigger alerting everyone in game that a user is cheating (like placing an ammo bag down when they have sentry gun)

Cheaters can be just sneaky enough to avoid these triggers.



Long story short: I was in a game where I started to notice a few unusual events and upon looking into further found that a cheater was present in the game.


Ways to spot cheaters

Avoid games that have players with the following names
SMELLY PIRATE CAPTAIN
I DIDNT RTFM
Mike Hunt
Spongebob
Jack Kanoff
Harry Wang
Hugh Janus
Moe Lester
Long ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Silver
Buster Hyman
Pirate Captain
Mike Literoius
Rusty ♥♥♥♥z
Jack Goff
Sam Fischer
Spiderman
Seymore Butts
Harry P. Ness
shiver me timbers

Why these names? Well cheaters can spoof a fake username that makes it harder to identify them and basically one of the cheating programs has a multpage list of AOL-era immature names that a cheater can use.


While one would think using a spoof name would make them harder to detect what the spoof name unable to do is spoof what gets sent to the steamworks backend (aka recent players list in the View Players menu)

If you suspect a cheater is in your game, open up steam overlay and click "View Players" in the friends section. In the View Players dialog box select Recent Games.

This will show the actual usernames of every player you've encountered, including players in the current game. If there are any players names that do not match what the newest entries, there is a high chance that a cheater is in the game (or at least spoofing their name which would mean they are using hacks)


Games that have the map/heist/job name "Loading...."

High level players that don't know what they are doing (ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE V-100)





Long story:
I was just in a random pub game of the bank heist cash and I joined about 6 minutes into the heist and things were going pretty normal, everyone was doing what they were supposed to post tripping the alarm but it wasn't until another another player and I were waiting at the van to escape having secured all the bags of cash that was laid out in open in the vault.

It wasn't until I went to check on the vault (as another assault was about to begin and a new swarm of police were about rush the place) to discover all the deposit boxes had to been completely opened in no one had a saw and everyone was too low of level to have the faster locking picking perk, of which there was no legit method the two heisters that were hanging in the vault could have opened all the deposit boxes in the time between open the vault door and grabbing and securing the money and then checking in on what they were doing in the vault still. After closely monitoring the inventory of the other players to see if there was any unusual paterns, I noticed a particular player expend about 75-100 rounds in one their guns and instantly gain back 100+ bullets without an ammo bag or picking up dropped ammo from enemies.

After seeing this I popped open steam overlay and opened up view players dialog box and checked the recent players tab, of which there was all but 1 player missing from the list that was in the game. Checking his profile/achievements also showed clear signs of using hacks as I don't believe there is a way to put 10 points into each skill tree BEFORE reaching level 5.
