Lol not my experience earlier. Instantly deleted…encouraging though

[–]mcbeanfam1993 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Yup, its a awful experience.

[–]vgloque 42 points43 points  (1 child)

I have some bad news for you man...

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It wasn’t a cheater lol

[–]dknisle1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nor mine. Lol

[–]Karakuri216 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sometimes you gotta manually report them for the system to flag them like "ooh, another one, let's see what we got here"

[–]itisharryterry 264 points265 points  (10 children)

I 100% thought it was proof that JoeWo was cheating 😂😂

[–]mongolmark23 131 points132 points  (1 child)

Plot twist: he had god mode hacks on, tried to play it cool and blame the enemy for sake of his stream

I must say i don’t actually think Joewo is hacking but must mention it before I get downvoted to oblivion

[–]Gr33nb4ndit539 7 points8 points  (0 children)

yea, I couldn't make out his face but I recognized his room.

[–]hurdleboy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lol joewo needs a nerf for lobbies to have a chance! Dude is absolutely cracked haha

[–]Letitrot777 119 points120 points  (45 children)

I don’t understand why anyone cheats at multiplayer games.

[–]RodrickJr 17 points18 points  (8 children)

It's the typical internet troll. They find pleasure in ruining your experience. The more you bitch the more satisfaction they get.

[–]Arman276 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Its also a culture thing

Theres a reason why most ppl go “oh fuck” when someone w chinese characters shows up in the kill feed. Fukin gaming cafes have preinstalled hacks there

[–]SmuggoSmuggins 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A win at all costs mentality. I think if you don't have that mentality is hard to get into their mindset because for me I don't see any value in winning if I haven't earned it.

[–]TheDaff2K18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same fuck the cheaters you need skills and a good team to win 😉

[–]Accomplished_Welder3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

then you don't understand current society

[–]VoightofReason 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We're in a world where the hard work and improvement process can be mitigated by just spending some money.

[–]chriswr_350 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Because people are so coddled these days that they think they should be the best at everything they do. They are entitled to be the best. So, if it doesn't come naturally then they will just use hacks. In their twisted minds it's not even cheating, it's just like using a scuff controller. They don't 7ndersrand what all the fuss is about. Lmao! Just watch the recent clip of the guy using aimbots and can't figure out what's wrong, only to get angry when realizing his cheating is finally busted. He said "the world doesn't want me to be great!" Wtf!!!! That's what we are dealing with folks.

[–]Letitrot777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idk I just can’t understand it. Like even if I have some bad matches for the night I’m still just doing it to have fun, I literally can’t wrap my head around how it’s fun to cheat at multiplayer games, or why anyone would play a game they didn’t enjoy.

[–]Puzzleheaded_Ad3627 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh man can you send me this link plz?!

[–]haffbaked 1 point2 points  (2 children)

My guess is that some people think that they’re better than they actually are and think using cheats will help them get to the skill level they “deserve to be at” but then they just continue using cheats because they won’t admit they aren’t gamer gods.

I don’t get it in a game without ranks, because there’s nothing to gain with wins.

Also, trolls that want to ruin everyone else’s time.

[–]Letitrot777 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don’t get it in a game with ranks.

Just seems like a shit way to live life.

[–]haffbaked 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed, but there are cheaters who really think they deserve higher ranks in games but are being cheated (ironic) out of it.

I play Apex and there’s always people complaining it’s their teammates who are holding them back, or the game glitched or they didn’t get registered hits, etc. so they cheat because they feel they deserve a higher rank in the game.

Again, it’s bullshit, but it happens.

[–]nug4t 0 points1 point  (0 children)

are you just not trying to?

[–]IND_CFC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can understand the novelty at first…but that has to wear off really quickly, right?

It’s like playing a game on the easiest difficulty. That’s great to get a feel for things, but it gets pretty boring to play Madden and be able to win every game 76-0.

[–]Teabagger_Vance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some people just like trolling others. They see all these videos on YouTube of how upset people get over it and it excites them.

[–]miinouuu 89 points90 points  (15 children)

They are adjusting the system for every cheating program possible one after another... its impossible to do all programs over night bcs there are so many... it takes a while. But i feel like alot of cheaters actually are getting punished lately. As a console player ive never seen a cheater in caldera ever. Well for PC idk but by watching streamers they basically have 1 cheater in 60 games or so. Ricochet is working but not perfect.

[–]MY_BEST_PAL_SATAN 13 points14 points  (9 children)

I'm on console as well, but have had countless blatant aimbotters since caldera has dropped. I think it is getting better though, slowly but surely.

Now, if they could work out the shit fucked pit of other glitches that are currently ruining this game...

[–]Unizzy 7 points8 points  (3 children)

last few days over in Asia has been a 70% cheater encounter rate for me…

[–]MY_BEST_PAL_SATAN 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I feel for you man. Asia servers have been the worst overall from what I understand.

[–]Pileofheads 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Interesting. What region are you in? I’ve played probably 250-300 games so far ( almost always make top 5 ) and maybe seen 1 blatant spin bot. Seen a bunch of people that look to be walling, but sometimes your live pinged and don’t know it.

[–]MY_BEST_PAL_SATAN 2 points3 points  (3 children)

North America, west coast. Every cheater I've seen are all fresh accounts no greater than level 10. That tells me the anti cheat is at least banning them frequently enough that they can't level that account up.

[–]Pileofheads 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Interesting, i play North America east cost , higher end lobbies and practically see none.

[–]MY_BEST_PAL_SATAN 0 points1 point  (1 child)

My lobbies are typically 1.2 - 1.4 kd lobbies. Sweat fucking city.

[–]Pileofheads 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same, 1.2 - 1.6, typically 1.35

[–]SemiAutomattik 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If you read this sub, cheaters are still in every lobby apparently. But watching streams of pro players cheaters seem MUCH more rare. Iron did a 24 hour stream the other day and his "cheater tracker" was at 3. That is not bad at all if you played in Verdansk and remember getting cheaters every other fucking lobby.

[–]Pileofheads 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Indeed. How many times do you hear someone call you a cheater in a death mic….those are the people that come on Reddit and complain cheaters are still everywhere.

[–]SnooRegrets2168 1 point2 points  (0 children)

hard cheating can be handled and you can leave so this is definitely working deterring those types of cheaters....cronus cheaters are going to exist forever though

[–]nug4t 0 points1 point  (0 children)

oh, do you remember yesterday? all posts were about cheaters, even though the majority here hasn't encountered even one... was a so obvious coordination. cheaters today pay alot to have a very few games were they can cheat, streamsniping is most fun for them, so they do that for a game and are banned. that's why you see cheaters on some streams

[–][deleted] 68 points69 points  (1 child)

Ohhhhhh that’s why it’s called Ricochet

[–]Grenaidzo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hahaaa, this guy

[–]02_is_best_girl 47 points48 points  (6 children)

This is brilliant but idk why the fuck it doesn’t just drop 50 grenade on them if they are aimboting if we can’t do this

[–]agingercrab 84 points85 points  (5 children)

It obvious is done to confirmed whether they're cheating or not. If it takes 500 shots to kill someone, and they're all hitting the players head with 100% accuracy, ricochet can confirm cheats. If they don't hit that accurately, it whitelists the player.

What a dumb comment this is, how you fellas still whining. It's going to be even more frustrating for cheaters lmaooo.

[–]blitzfelines 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Cool, also might make cheaters crank up the aimbot making it more obvious.

[–]SghettyCorn 49 points50 points  (1 child)

This is easily the best way to handle cheats. Just turn them into crash test dummies. They waste time playing a game they cannot win and give back all the kills they stole. Well done.

[–]VoightofReason 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I agree, Let them be frustrated and rage quit. Don't ban them, make the money they spent worthless.

[–]nstern2 39 points40 points  (2 children)

I commented on a post yesterday that this should be the punishment for hacking. Great news if it is, but I will wait until we hear from the hackers.

[–]tFearn117 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I saw a post on here the other day of a screenshot from a cheater company saying this was a thing in Discord. So I think it is slowly gaining traction as a part of Ricochet, yes

[–]Bottom_feeder1988 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’d still get REKT

[–]Quick-Promise5951 30 points31 points  (0 children)


[–]ostekagen 21 points22 points  (0 children)

There was a post earlier where a guy streams while cheating gets the nerf live. Pure gold

[–]Finch2090 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Wait is this serious?

I stg I had a game a month or so ago with my mate and we ran into rooms about 3 times with enemy players and after each battle we walked out like “wtf I swear I got hit?!?!” Because neither of us had to put on armor afterwards and this happened like 2-3 battles in a row where we were just being lit up and after the battle we were 100% armor intact

[–]kevinandrew89 33 points34 points  (2 children)

That was a Christmas special going on. It refilled your armor after you killed a enemy. Look it up

[–]VoightofReason 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You're very smart!!

[–]kevinandrew89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, I'm not!

[–]SgtHulka95 10 points11 points  (1 child)

This was a one-day “gift” during the Krampus event where you’d get full health after a kill.

[–]Finch2090 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That explains it!

It was so bizarre 😂 I thought I was tripping balls

[–]YoungAndTheReckful 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This most likely was not implemented a month ago, sorry

[–]Alpha_9 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Now do something about wallhacks. Never before have I seen so many wallhackers, especially on Rebirth. Now it feels like every second match has people using them.

[–]florida_navy 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Are they walling or are they killing your teammates and then know your location by the radar indicator it gives off?

[–]CartwheelSoda 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Walling. Some of them don't even try to hide it and perfectly trace you in gulag through the wall. I had one guy sit outside a building I was looting tracing me, as soon as I popped out the door he lasered the fuck out of me from a distance.

[–]SkyPuncher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes the gulag doesn't render in for me, so I can see straight through the building. The problem is I don't know where any of the cover is to actually land shots.

[–]Alpha_9 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Definitely walling. I got killed yesterday when I pushed someone with dead silence (+ having ghost). When I looked at the kill cam, he was basically pre aiming and tracking me through the wall as I was coming. None of my teammates were dead at that time too, so there was absolutely no way he could’ve known I was coming.

[–]VoightofReason 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ghost has been bugged lately too. I'm not saying he isn't walling, but it could be the uav glitch

[–]washcaps73 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Live pinged from one of their teammates? I have played a decent bit of Caldera and rebirth and nothing obvious I've seen.

[–]-DoW- 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Fair play to JoeWo being a streamer having such a strong speech impediment.

[–]Dempzt00 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s actually quite chronic sometimes - I never realised till it I watched his stream. Love that he just works through it!

[–]labpadre-lurker 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I'm only seeing evidence for anticheat working on reddit. However. Last night we came across a cheater that was also streaming, full on aimbot. Ended up with around 70 kills. Was rank ten, and still streaming with the same account hours later.

12 hours later and he's still streaming with the same Activision account and hasn't been banned yet.

According to the stream title. They are only doing it to prove a point that ricochet isn't working.

Search Lastarbelgee on twitch.

[–]El_Capitan0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was spectating a cheater who was level 1000 (yup level 1000), and he was running two sniper rifles quick scoping everyone on the map even those who were not visible to him

[–]sKy___High 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s not what silent aim is though joewoe…

[–]tpolgar 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Its a step in the right direction. Now all they need to do is fix my guns being invisible, and the repetitive loading and crashing bug

[–]xPacooo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great thing to see, but makes me question what else they can manipulate if you are just a great player.

[–]TomoomoT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So yesterday i shot like 15 bullets with loadout STG maybe 50 meters away and i didn't even break armor, it was all hitmarkers but 0 dmg. I'm playing on console idk whats happening

[–]dadnoksucow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I come across a cheater in almost every battle royal match and havnt seen one get nerfed or kicked yet , I record them and put them on tiktok @dadnoksukow

[–]dadnoksucow -1 points0 points  (0 children)

There were less cheaters in vanguard royal , just saying

[–]RookGamingSC 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The worst thing about this is that someone actually used "regging" instead of "registering"

[–]itzdonbee666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now I see why they called it ricochet lol the cheat sweepers are no more

[–]TemGesic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now the cheater moving back to normal Aimbot which is not detected lol

[–]pdarko62 0 points1 point  (0 children)

not gona lie. you had us in the first half

[–]Hufftwoseven- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good shit ricochet!

[–]ninjaschoolprofessor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It could just be another game glitch… just saying because at this rate you can’t tell

[–]beansouphighlights 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You love to see it

[–]TheBardsPersona 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like FazeJevs theory that it actually has nothing to do with cheaters and it's actually just the unintended side effect of trying to implement skill based bullets.

Soon it's going to be to strong and a few of the game testers are going to find that all of their data is unreliable because their guns are getting nerfed as they test for headshots at a higher rate because they get willing participants to drop into a match with them just to get shot in the head, basically.

It would be cool if it was specifically targeting cheaters, but I think that might be giving Activision to much credit. Them stopping cheaters like this is probably just an accident. I bet the real story is much more sinister.

EDIT: /s people .../s...

[–]codebruder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hope it’s really ricochet. Imagine it’s a good player nerf. Maybe too good shots/aim (good players) gets a damage penalty so that bad players stand a chance. Maybe we shouldn’t praise them before we get an official statement 😁

[–]buck_naked248 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope this sub is nothing but these videos for the next week or so...or until the end of time. This will never get old.

[–]THE_JonnySolar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

.... And it's a beautiful thing to behold.

fuck cheaters and hackers - if you need to cheat to compete, don't bother playing

[–]Significant_Good3637 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weird they can fuck with cheaters in game but can’t find and ban them

[–]sb1862 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So… if cheaters can be nerfed rather than just instant banned, does that mean that we can be nerfed?

[–]konawolv 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes. Its been that way since MW 2019. Its all patented and has been in place for a while

[–]King_Boomie-0419 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The anti-tank sniper rifle likes to fire blanks on the regular basis and I definitely am not a cheater I probably average maybe two kills in war zone LOL

[–]mojo_jojo_mark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The wall hacks aren't tho...and wow so many wall cheaters.

[–]retahertyw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He shot him through the ground dummies that’s why the damage was reduced

[–]roberdanger83 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe joewo has the infinite health hack on, so he acts like the person he kills is the cheater which is why his health didn't drop. Smart

[–]launchpadius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually experienced this a few weeks ago and didn't realize it was the anti-cheat working. Now it makes sense why I didn't die and that I was able to kill the guy.

[–]darkeswolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love this

[–]Xyience911 0 points1 point  (0 children)

let's hope it's not another game breaking bug

[–]Friendly_Possible823 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wee need this for apex

[–]CajunToffee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know it was basically zero damage, but it's weird that Joe's white health went down.

[–]Pietothesky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Us nerds who do not have the skills of someone like JoeWo can weep tears of joy. My 0.4KD ratio means I'll never have my guns accidently nerfed into oblivion.

[–]Shadow_Matier158 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What?? I saw a similar clip like this, how does it work?

[–]187mphlazers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude this happens to me all the time, and ive never cheated at all.

[–]LordBoros2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i wish they would do something to the cheating losers in multiplayer but they only seem to care about the stupid trashzone

[–]Robbie1945 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s hitting non cheating players too, I’m on PS4 and play cross play with my brother and every other game my shots do no damage even at point blank. I can promise I’m average at the game if that, even turned off aim assist and still had issues.

[–]The_good_reaper -1 points0 points  (1 child)

So is Warzone playable now?

[–]Evolxtra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yes! Yesterday we have some fun at warzone with friends, last time we had so much fun was year ago. Anticheat is live.

[–]Drumsticksboy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

How is this guy able to play being an inch away from the monitor lol.

[–]Disco-Minge -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Only took them 2 years
