Battlefield 4 hackers already spotted
Battlefield 4 launched just days ago, and it didn’t take long before the first hackers and cheaters appeared in the game. According to Punkbuster and PBBans, several hackers have already been spotted, and luckily, banned from the game. Punkbuster even provided screenshots of the new hacks in action.
It’s not a big surprise that we’re seeing hackers this early — the same thing happened with BF3, and there are still hackers present in that game, two years after it launched. But it’s good to see that at the anti-cheat systems are at least capturing some of the hackers.
It’s not as easy as it seems though, to find and ban hackers in a game. “Smart hackers” rarely stand out too much. They make sure to get killed by the enemy once in a while to keep up appearance.
These sort of hackers and cheaters are of course most prevalent on PCs — we haven’t heard any reports of Battlefield 4 hackers on consoles.
What’s worse, every once in a while, we come across a web advertisement promoting Battlefield 4 hacks and cheats. We feel sorry for the poor souls who have to spend money on these hacks…
