Cheating on consoles used to be a rarity, and then crossplay came along.
I mean it's just Activision's fault. all that money and still no Anticheat. they are just doing manual bans. and the poor communication. They have been getting better at it, but I mean they went from 0 communication to minimal communication. they are now losing streamers rapidly, some will be switching to other games like apex and new world. battlefield is on the horizon (although they have to prove themselves as well) but if they don't do something fast people will be gone. I only play warzone because of my gaming Bro`s if not for them wouldn't even started playing it.
Anti cheat doesn't really work they crack those in like the first month. The hackers are using AI now so unless the publishers start building an AI to counter then it's going to get worse.
One man's ai is another man's fancy if statement.
C'mon it's a small family business...
I think the craziest thing about this, is how much individuals pay for the cheats, to cheat. Willing to risk malware and everything just to put some night vision goggles on in a F2P game. WTF is wrong with people?
You must not now how people create these cheats. Even with anti cheat they find newer ways to implement them.
I've started seeing cheater compilation and Top10 videos on Youtube. Surely this is just giving them notoriety, it's not helping the cause at all.
Speak for yourself. Some of us want their paywall time online to be an amusing living hell.
Be nice if console players could only choose other console players to play against, leave PC cheaters to their own playground!
Tons of games you can and I uncheck that box all the time.
stopped playing warzone coz of the pc cheaters....and yes you can turn off crossplay, but you have to sit there for 10-15 minutes to find enough players...no thanks!
I think he means that there should be an option for console only. as far as i know, games only have the option to play with Playstation only and XBOX only. but it would be nice for a console-only lobby. but they probaly dont want that because more people will choose for the console-only option then. now they force people that want to play with their cross console buddy to play in PC lobbies. and well pc lobbies just have more hackers. The worst thing I encounter in console lobbies is the Chronos bullshit which is harder to prove.
I think the new battlefield has a option where you can include pc players into your search as a option. This for me will be getting turned off. I was going to get the game on pc. But get it for ps5 now so I don't get stuck with the cheaters lol. Call of duty warzone on PS4/ps5 allows you to turn off crossplay and it works. I don't think it works on Xbox though unfortunately for them.
No problem i'm good. I mostly keep crossplay with other platforms deactivated anyways and rather play within the ps community, so i don't have to deal with masterrace cheaters and green elite cultists
Console only players can keep crying. The amazing thing about PC is that it is open. You can do whatever you want. On console, you need to do as you're told. I don't seem to run into this rampant cheating all the same. Yet I can still say I know that consoles are also hit with cheating and botting.
Just because you are in complete denial about the cheater situation on PC doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
It certainly exists, there is no denying that, but it isn't anywhere near as much of a proplem as people make it out to be. It's mainly a problem in games that don't have any kind of anti cheat software.
It's true its a load of shit. The only and only positive about cross play is there's a larger pool of players to matchmaker into. Tbh best just turn it off Games like cod Battlefield etc pc player base is painfully low
Being you claim to be a PC gamer, you should know just how BS your statement is. PC almost always keeps a playerbase alive years after console leaves a game behind.
Banned 2,086 players early this morning for abuse of an RP loss forgiveness exploit (dashboarding) and abuse of a matchmaking exploit allowing high-rank players into Bronze lobby to farm. Breakdown is as follows: PC-44 PS4- 1,965 Switch- 15 Xbox- 62
Who didn’t see that coming though? Lol. That’s why I was always a closed platform person.
"That’s why I was always a closed platform person" All of these closed platforms have had problems with cheating. GTA 4 and 5 were unplayable at times because of it.
Not to that extent. I’ve never had a problem. There were a few but they were easy to spot.
thing is its not just the PC owners cheating... just watch the so called "Best Player" footage at the end of the game (Cold War)... crossplay disabled, gamepad only... look in the top right for the words "customised" - yep, just cheating with a auto aim, no recoil, etc on a console also spot players account is offline (most times) and mouse icon (most times)...
I don't understand cheating in multiplayer games, how is it even fun? If you win, you know you didn't do it fairly, so where does the satisfaction come from?
So that’s how you become part of the master race, you cheat. Jokes aside, when I left pc gaming iIn 2007, I was pleased to find so much less cheating on XBL.
It really is bad but honestly companies should have better anti-cheat in 2021
Hate to break it to you but ai machine learning is already here for consoles and it’s hardly PCs fault there are hackers in your games. This falls solely on game companies failing to provide anti cheats. If you think cheating solely exists on pc you’re woefully naive and misinformed
