Halo Infinite Dev Responds To Concerns About Cheating
343 says it anticipated cheating being a problem for Halo Infinite.
As instances of cheating and hacking continue to grow in Halo Infinite's multiplayer beta, the developer has released a statement explaining what it's doing to combat bad behavior. Community manager John Junyszek said 343 cannot eradicate cheating completely--no game can do this--but promised that the studio is committed to doing everything it can to keep the battlefield clean.
"Unfortunately, cheating is a natural part of supporting a F2P PC game and it's one we anticipated," he said on Twitter. "It'll never go away entirely, but we're prepared and committed to releasing consistent improvements to our game’s systems and taking action on bad actors."
Junyszek said players can report suspected cheaters using this website. Halo Infinite doesn't currently have a "report player" button in the game, but Junyszek said the studio understands that this is something people want. He also advised players who report bad actors to include video evidence to help the enforcement team. Whether or not Halo Infinite ever adds an in-game player-reporting feature remains to be seen.
Halo Infinite players have called on 343 to allow them to opt out of cross-play to help avoid cheaters, but as of yet, this has not happened.
