First reported cheats started to emerge online for The Division. Gamers are now furious!
I knew this was going to happen lol
Weapon and ammo manipulation happened the in the beta on the pc, so it's not surprising. Consoles didn't have the problem.
I'm sure we all did. Realistically, I don't understand a person's motivation to cheat. What are they getting out of it and how does it make the game fun? Cheaters on this site, feel free to respond because I'd love to know
they got nothing better to do with there lives pretty much it. I hate it as much as you do but what can you do about it besides report them
They are losers in the real world, probably have no life or job. They leach off their parents, living at home rent free with no real responsibilities and spend the little money they have on gaming. It transitions to how they play games too. It's sad really. Bad genetics and unfortunately they will probably have kids that will be trolls just like them. This has always been something that has existed, though with the current generation of gamers that range in age from 20-30 it has become extremely prevalent.
People only cheat to grief others. There is no point to it.
I don't have The Division but I've cheated in games before. I think it isn't fair to say someone is either this or that. It isn't all black and white (like most things in life). I'll find exploits sometimes for SP games because maybe currency or a material is too time consuming to get. And for MP, I'll try out spots that people tell me that give you an advantage like a spot no one knows you can get to or maybe you "head glitch" meaning you see them but they barely see your head. In terms of hacks I remember trying one for Call of Duty 4 YEARS ago on PC. I had the downloaded free version (lol you know) and I was bored. I had bought it and done 100% everything in MP on PS3 and wanted to try mods on PC and found a hack that allowed me to fly around and see enemies across the map. I would troll just shoot once and watch them go crazy trying to find me. That lasted a week and never played again. Other than that, I usually avoid cheating online. I hate when it's done on me so I play legit. But the point is it can be fun when you're bored. It's not like some of us spend days researching and looking for ways to cheat. I'm sure there are people like that. Then there's those who find out through a friend and just wanna try it or maybe they suck so bad they wanna have an advantage and see how it feels to be #1, I don't know. I'm assuming. Like I said, I'll "cheat" in games like Fallout or something if it means less time wasted farming shit.
Yeah, this was a given on PC. Just memory hacking happening here. Pretty simple stuff. Cheat Engine, find memory markers and elements, force them to always show for enemies or to stay the same for ammo. This is why people like MP on consoles more typically. Hopefully they do a good job of policing this stuff on PC.
Is this through Steam? I thought hacking on Steam was near impossible or you would at least get caught fast. I know people will hack on Non-Steam games and it can be easier by-passing anti-cheat stuff on older games. Btw, I don't consider myself a PC gamer. I use to be like 10 years ago before I fully switched to consoles around 2005. But back then it was easy to download games and hack. I only hacked once on CoD4 but then again many were hacking since it was the unofficial servers and it was as easy as downloading some software and instantly having all the hacks you can imagine. And unless the admin kicked you, you could hack all you wanted. It got boring within a week. I would just shoot them once and watch them go crazy trying to find me. I never hacked again.
@IceKoldKilla: memory hacking can't be stopped, only detected. It reads memory, then you find where in the memory data is stored and manipulate it so it to what you want. It can require a ton of work to get data like NPC locations, but it's completely possible by narrowing elements down over time.
That didn't take long.
Who could have predicted this shocking turn of events?
Cheaters ruin online games. Gta suffered from heavy cheaters. Do whatever you want offline, but it shouldn't be permitted online.
I'd catch them and make them clean up garbage.
100% agreed. I'm guilty of using in-game exploits for singleplayer games if it makes it faster for grindy stuff or if I can avoid boring parts of the game. Obviously I wouldn't do something like skip to the last mission or something. That's stupid. Beats the purpose of playing. But duplicating items so I don't have to farm for hours, I do that.
cheater will be cheaters, if there is any shortcut they will use it, and these are the ones you buy that mc meal from everyday more or less.
Jeez wtf was that? Lol
How is that fun? Taking all the challenge out of the game, just running and gunning..
While I do agree with you. Cheaters don't really care, just so long as they can dominate. Of course they are usually the first to scream if they themselves are cheated on or they are found out and banned/shunned by the gaming community. These same cheaters will even cheat in a single player game where the only one they are cheating is themselves, however they don't see it that way and as far as they are concerned that have the right to beat the game by any means. Rather sad really.
You mean CoD?
For the most part, but I will say that realistic difficulty is some bs sometimes lol
hey look the sky is blue wow
Wow theres some clever people out there, this game hasnt been out long and they already able to manipulate the game.
I don't know about clever since a cheat is a cheat. I hope they get banned although this would only be a minor annoyance to some of these people. I do hope the developers come out with a patch very soon otherwise genuine gamers will start to avoid this game.
He clearly meant those that created this so fast. They're the clever ones. There is nothing clever about following a video guide or clicking on a link to download software that only requires you to install and run before starting the game.
you gotta have a lot of cheaters.
What is hilarious about this is despite that obvious cheat advantage... this fool still died.
Cheaters are really annoying! when I'm struggling in the game and they have all the weapons and gears, I really lose my mind! I hate them really bad!!!!
Typical German kid hacker listening to garbage black metal and he still sucks. Too bad we didn't get a keyboard smashing in with this after he died. Kill yourself.
Wow. Another reason why I personally prefer console gaming. You will see hacking eventually and it might stay active on old games like the first CoD games on PS3 but I haven't seen hackers affect me on PS4 yet. I'm sure there are some. Nothing in the world is unhackable. All you need is time until it can be hacked. The real question is whether the developer cares enough to patch it after its first year of being out or just leave the game to rot.
