Cheaters: Online Gaming Scum




Posted by Oscar M. Cantu Categories: Corporate News, Internet, Xbox,

Halo 2Anyone who has played Halo 2 on Xbox Live has surely come across at least one cheater and knows how annoying they can be. Cheaters ruin the game play for everyone in general, not just in the game but overall all. How so? By way of auto updates. Every time some punk finds a “hack” for the game and starts ruining the experience for the rest of us, Bungie releases one of these famed auto updates. As you can imagine or experienced, this is highly annoying – so what’s Bungie’s stance on cheaters? Aside from banning every single cheater they see and rolling out updates, Bungie is also working with the Xbox Live Team to enforce the Code of Conduct and also track in-game feedback. This means that a simple banning from Halo 2 for that account is not the only thing in their arsenal of tools against cheaters. Currently more than 2,600 “gamers” have been banned by Bungie – which seems like a small number compared to the over half-million Halo 2 gamers today. The cheating seems to be bigger than ever and with the current new map released, we are sure to see this even more – good news is that Bungie will be releasing a new update in the second week of July, one week after the new maps being released. The good thing about this timing is that the new maps can only be played on Custom game types via Xbox Live – meaning the only cheaters you’ll see are the ones you know and are on your “friends” list.

I say ban their Live account as well…from all games!

I was playing Halo 2 today for the first time in a long time and it wasn’t very long until I found some these cheaters you talk of. The guys moved at the speed of light and were flying all over the place killing me and my teammate almost instantly after we respawned. I still can’t believe the idiots weren’t banned. They’re handles were I cheat a lot 1 and I cheat a lot 2 if you play against them leave as much Cheating feedback as you can.
