Microsoft surprised us with Halo Infinite just two weeks ago and we are already experiencing hackers running wild in the game.
One of the disadvantages of being F2P and Crossplay with PC
The seriously need to add Crossplay based on input so the cheating PC crowd don’t ruin it for console.
Cross play based on input is an option for ranked I believe, but not for standard matchmaking which I think they should definitely add
maybe a separate server cause PC players could just plug in controller for input.
Toxic PC community
Honestly it feels like only the big games attract the toxic players. I have no issues when playing most games on PC.
@smashman98 They attack a lot of games. An example is Titanfall 2.
PC defense force incoming...
Cheaters really ruin the fun of multiplayer, alot of other players just dick about or just not try once cheaters enter the match.
You really should be able to turn off crossplay so you don't have to suffer the cheaters ruining the fun. They make playing it pointless.
But, isn't "Xbox is PC and PC is Xbox"? 😏
Does it really matter? If you’re good at the game no matter how hard they cheat you still find a way to have fun it’s when you tie down first place with having fun where the problem begins. Just report him/her and move along btw all mmo should have a vote to kick system where you vote to kick someone and if the numbers total more than 3/4 of the players the player get kicked out automatically
Problem is not f2p or Crossplay...community is a problem..to much of no life kids or people that need to cheat in a damn video game to think they are important in society.One of my friend is working at ubisoft Montreal, they invest more than a million dollars/year in Rainbow 6 alone to counter cheater...guess what...we all pay for this when we are buying a game.
Crossplay with PC in shooters is the worst idea. Cheaters. Then there’s the mismatch of mouse vs controller.
Agree. One of the major benefits to playing on a console to begin with is a more secure and less cheat-prone experience. Forced crossplay is eliminating that.
Too bad controllers kinda suck for playing fps tho..
Actually, due to aim assist, controller is far outperforming m&k As in, your average controller player is hitting shots more consistently then the top m&k players. And skilled controllers are outperforming everyone.
halo infinite has the least amount of aim assist in a halo game its actually almost zero.
I can’t tell if this is a troll…they literally put bloom on the sniper so MKB people wouldn’t be no scoping across the map 24/7
Yeah there ain't no aim assist in Halo. It requires actual skill. Not like half those other shooters out there.
@josh Not correct. Plenty of info and complaint out there
The accuracy stats show that console players have a higher amount of experience base behind the game vs PC. The level of difference between accuracy data is less 5~9% depending on top 50% data and top 100 players. It simply shows that long time Halo gamers are currently better on average than the PC best. Many PC best dominating some of the top 100 in this category but not as many as people imagine. The idea experience from other games brings itself to the Halo game is simply a false notion than not. Skill for sure is learned and many high skilled players can quickly pick-up a game but the long time skilled players on Halo mostly reside on console and will likely always fair better. Even the average skill based Halo player on console that has been playing a long time has a better chance at knowing how to use weapons in game than PC players experiencing the game with much less experience behind them. Aiming in CS is not the same as aiming in Halo. And for sure players don't move the same in either game. Nor do the weapons respond the same.
Yeah, I am playing PC but playing with controller. M&K seems to a disadvantage for Halo in my experience.
Actually someone did a guide using halo stats and determined kb/mouse players are actually at a slight disadvantage
"here’s what they’re up to" ...Cheating?
Won't lie, I chuckled at the title and then again at your comment. Like, what else could cheaters be doing in a fps?
Really sad people feel good about doing this in games. Clearly they weren’t raised right.
Why do they even bother to play games? It's a pointless waste of time for the cheaters and it's equally pointless for those being cheated against. It just removes enjoyment all around.
Usually it's children because of their bad parents letting them do anything yea.
Imagine being so pathetic you have to cheat, just quit losers lmao.
I don’t get it either. It wouldn’t feel like a win if you cheated. I don’t do that. Then again i was raised correctly.
Honestly, these guys sell themselves these delusions that cheating takes some kind of skill or it's fun.
Either take PC off altogether imo or make matchmaking input based
I was under the impression matchmaking already was input based
I’m currently playing on pc but I use an Xbox one controller, hate keyboard and mouse.. yeah kinda weird but I’m considering picking up an Xbox for this reason, to play against other controller users only
You would think that with MS being a software company they would know how to handle this unlike Bungie but nope...
This could be fixed for console players with a toggle. It’s unfortunate.
It would be real nice, if just once, a company this seriously. I game on Pc for infinite. I play with my Xbox friends. I don’t want to lose that because Microsoft is too lazy to implement good anti cheat. Come on.
The vocal Xbox community begged for crossplay and here we are. Saw this from a mile away. Cheaters in Halo, cheaters in dead by daylight, cheaters in COD, cheaters in battlefield. Remember when someone would snipe you and you’d be impressed? I remember those days. Now you can’t wait to see the kill cam just to find out you were no scoped from behind a mountain 8 miles away. Ahhh the good old days.
Tbh I think mainly pc players wanted cross play easy bait for keyboard mouse and of course the cheaters
Pc Elite Vs Xbox Sheep let the games begin
You would think with all the money XBOX has, they would have locked this game down pretty good.
err...where were you since last year? there have been lots of incompetence shown with this game since last year
If you think there are no console players cheating you are high. There plenty of products, like the crocus zen, that are absolutely being used to cheat. More cheaters on PC? Yeah, absolutely. But, it happens on ALL of the major platforms. As long as there are people who suck at competitive games, there will be people who cheat at competitive games.
But at least if their Xbox account gets banned then they think twice. Reckon they should start bricking Xboxes like the modern ware fare days
Cronus is, at the moment, undetectable. You run the controller through it then into the console. It appears as genuine inputs from the player. Really quite a smart product. Too bad it's for screwing up people's good times.
it was fun for couple of weeks...oh well
*Shocked Pikachu face*
search, detect, and blanket ban accounts/IP's
Been done before and it doesn't work if they know how to cheat they know how to VPN route and create a new account. Brick the console and force them to get a new one every time they get caught cheating would be a better option.
That is why they need to work alongside ISP's and ban the public IP, or if cheaters are identified, assign them a static Public IP (these are sometimes assigned as a static IP by your ISP and cannot be changed, even with use of a VPN, but more often than not they may be dynamic, but are still not assigned by the end user, but the ISP's) It all comes down to how the ISP assign their public IP's, if cheater's are assigned a static IP by their ISP, they can easily be blocked with the only workaround to swap ISP's. https://www.kaspersky.com/r... "Public IP addresses A public IP address is the primary address associated with your whole network. While each connected device has its own IP address, they are also included within the main IP address for your network. As described above, your public IP address is provided to your router by your ISP. Typically, ISPs have a large pool of IP addresses that they distribute to their customers. Your public IP address is the address that all the devices outside your internet network will use to recognize your network." "Public IP addresses come in two forms – dynamic and static. Dynamic IP addresses Dynamic IP addresses change automatically and regularly. ISPs buy a large pool of IP addresses and assign them automatically to their customers. Periodically, they re-assign them and put the older IP addresses back into the pool to be used for other customers. The rationale for this approach is to generate cost savings for the ISP. Automating the regular movement of IP addresses means they don’t have to carry out specific actions to re-establish a customer's IP address if they move home, for example. There are security benefits, too, because a changing IP address makes it harder for criminals to hack into your network interface. Static IP addresses In contrast to dynamic IP addresses, static addresses remain consistent. Once the network assigns an IP address, it remains the same. Most individuals and businesses do not need a static IP address, but for businesses that plan to host their own server, it is crucial to have one. This is because a static IP address ensures that websites and email addresses tied to it will have a consistent IP address — vital if you want other devices to be able to find them consistently on the web." Edit : i do not think it is the console user's, but more so the PC userbase, so bricking consoles is redundant.
Just a little piece on how implementing IP banning can be utilised https://forum.playhive.com/... "There might be argument that such provision of staff’s handling of cheaters might be difficult to implement, however, the fact remains that it will be way better and more efficient for the server in the long run. The Hive Network already has the ability to collect data like IP, username, and MAC address; therefore, such implementation of access-blocking is perfectly viable and within reach." IP banning is feasible
What happened to PC master race? Haha
They're still playing on their PC?
Article said nothing about the cheats encountered. Disappointing.
Probably didn't want to write a "how to" guide by being too detailed.
Crossplay and PC is a plague
I must be going blind -- can someone explain to me what happened in the video that is cheating? Is it the outline of the opponents when behind a structure?
Is it free to play on PC? If so, that's why. I mean, this doesn't ruin Halo or anything, but oof. At least charge the gamepass amount. Development 101, unless you are going after whales for microtransactions. F2P crossplay multiplayer, for real? Ugh. They should fix this by allowing the option to disallow crossplay, but I doubt they will, it goes hard against their long term planning, even though it would probably be better for the individual game.
Yeah, nothing like someone basically being on a swivel with insta-headshots with a sniper rifle
