I feel sorry for people who have to cheat.. You have to start walking before you run... Just practice !!

Lol hacking/cheating takes the fun out of the game. Eventually they will get bored and leave but so lame lol.
KidBroSweets2  +   512d ago
Your first sentence, I completely agree with. The second one, I highly doubt. If they do get bored, they'll just make a new account and just hack/cheat all over again.

There are plenty of cowards and weaklings that will cheat for a long time.

We need to make new laws to deal with scum like this, at the very least I'd like to see them punished by having to do many hours of community service cleaning up trash along streets etc.

This is why Devs should release private servers so we can deal with these people. Leaving hackers up to the Devs is garbage. The amount of times i have reported hackers and nothing happens to them.

We will Find You!!!... And we will Kill you... Well kinda. Maybe shame up your PC!!!

Although there are those who cheat for the "lols" of trolling, many cheat to get an edge - think of it like using steroids in professional sports. Competition, or the "high" that comes from winning, is very self destructive and can be very addictive.

That is one of the advantages to play in consoles, on Pc give you the advantage of the mods, but the hacking is way to easy and way too popular
Codey47  +   512d ago
Consoles have hackers too.
sigfredod  +   512d ago
Yes but way less than pc
AnteCash  +   512d ago
Its much much worse on PC, loved the sniper 50 to 1 KD in BF3 in the middle of Op. firestorm map
SlapHappyJesus  +   512d ago

Of course it does.
Let's not marginalize its affect on console gaming though. You almost present it as a non-issue, which is far from the case.
Elit3Nick  +   512d ago
it's much more limited on console though. On PC people can run programs that enable things not possible by the game itself, where consoles would not allow those programs to run.
Codey47  +   512d ago
No they just modify save/profile data instead. Or buy "hardware"

Anybody remember GT5 Users getting banned from online portions of the game for Illicitly modified "data"

Robert Bowling blaming Sony's "security" for mw3 hacks

Next Gen consoles IMO need to implement some anti cheating counter measures IE: like Punkbuster but Sony or Microsoft's version if they don't want to pay the large fee's.

Good call Codey. You can buy modded controllers on Amazon that come with some of the most bizarre cheats.

How is it even fun?

And yes, PC has them, that is why I love Valve's Anticheat servers.

You'll never notice it. Unlike your shit pc.
SlapHappyJesus  +   512d ago
I don't recall coming across a lot of hackers when playing on console /s

They ruined World at War for me.
The only one I ever put time into. :/

Flying, invisible god peopple
Are_The_MaDNess  +   512d ago
yeah yeah, hacking happens more on the PC than other places. but we atleast have good admin support in our servers
Section8  +   511d ago
I guess pc always needs support. Since when does a console need it. Not enough to have a support network.
Are_The_MaDNess  +   511d ago
admins on game servers are great.
with hacking or no hacking.
much better game and server when they are there watching out for us.

hacking a video game to cheat is one of the saddest things anyone can do...
Naughty__Boy  +   512d ago
sometimes when i play bf3 on ps3 i think some players have some sort of cheat going on.
IVanSpinal  +   512d ago
its called Natural Skills XP
FITgamer  +   512d ago
I've never ran into any hackers on BF, at least i never noticed it, but I have on every COD game. MW2 was the worst.

I have never run into any hackers on BF3 for consoles. However I have run into people using glitches in the game to cheat. Like Conquest on Kharg Island. There is a glitch that lets you get under the map on a boat. You can take flags and kill people with c4 and they cant even see you.
JasonKCK  +   512d ago
If it's online people find a way to cheat no matter what platform you game on.
Thepharaoh  +   512d ago
What took them so long
BLAKHOODe  +   512d ago
They shouldn't just ban them from BF4, but make it a 10 year ban on ALL future Battlefield games, as well. Swift and severe punishment is the way to go dealing with these a-holes.
clmstr  +   512d ago
Am I the only one who thinks that cheating in online games IS NOT a fun thing to do at all?
jriquelme_paraguay  +   512d ago
Cernunnos  +   512d ago
I have never seen the point of it, and even if it was fun, I still wouldn't do it. I got more self-respect than that.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   512d ago
Cheaters never win.. Skill always does.
joe90  +   512d ago
Say that to the guy with god mode. Your skill is no match for Mr Bullet Proof. He always wins.

The only way to defeat these guys is leave the game.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   512d ago
Then have the guy with God mode, use no Cheats... he won't beat me.. I'd put a wager on it.
Gozer  +   512d ago
Maybe if he wasn't cheating, but the point is he is cheating and there is nothing you could do about it. Just because you hate cheaters doesn't change the fact that a cheater in God Mode with auto headshots is going to beat you in a game. I hate cheating too, but that doesn't mean I can win just because I want to.
memots  +   512d ago
Or you could use us as 12g frag round lol
And could control day and night !!!

Good thing about my community is its been up seen CODv1 released in 2004.

We have a good set off admins on all are servers we have preordered BF4 servers already and them spectate slots will be put to good use.

When playing on PC join a community get friendly and be part off the community you will get a much cleaner experience all round.

With mature gamers and not a bunch off whiny kids. That's been the way its always been on PC of course there's the servers run by idiots that don't know what it means to run a server proper.

But that's will always be the way. But if we can bag a hacker we always do. Been doing it for years. Skill is earnt not brought.

Tsk tsk... Shame on these people!
The_Truth_24_7  +   512d ago
LMFAO @ pc.
memots  +   512d ago
They should ban the account and the game code from being used ever, costing them 60$ a pop when they get caught would teach them a lesson
Section8  +   511d ago
This is why pc gaming is garbage.
