343 'Prepared and Committed' to Deal With Halo Infinite Cheating

343 'Prepared and Committed' to Deal With Halo Infinite Cheating - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 December 2021 / 782 Views

Community Manager at 343 Industries John Junyszek via Twitter said the developer is "prepared and committed" to cheating issues with Halo Infinite.

"Unfortunately, cheating is a natural part of supporting a [free-to-play] PC game and it's one we anticipated," said Junyszek. "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."

The developer wants people to report cheaters to the Halo Waypoint Support site and said including video evidence will make it easier on the Halo Safety team. Junyszek did say the team is aware people want a "Report Player" feature in-game.

Halo Infinite free-to-play multiplayer is now available on the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC, while the campaign will release on December 8.

Really glad to see 343 is already tackling the issue before the "official" launch. Many developers take months to years (*cough Bungie) to really address cheating lol only time will tell how well 343 handles it though.

In the meantime, they should immediately enable a toggle off option for crossplay on console. I also thought 343 could implement reporting a player through theater. Like, you're watching a theater clip, go to the viewpoint of the player you thought was cheating, and have there be a "submit clip for potential cheater" option from the viewpoint of the player you were watching, and the clip goes directly to 343's security team. Just a thought since they seem to be inviting video evidence.

I think that submit clip idea of yours would be great as Bungie can then see for themselfs if the person is really cheating etc and not have people who are really just good getting accused of cheating as we have seen in other games.

You mean 343? lol idk if Bungie has a theater mode where you can watch previous PvP matches in Destiny 2. I feel like any competitive PvP game should have a feature like this, though. At least the PC versions of competitive games because the developers can only do so much themselves.

Just add the ability for Xbox gamers to play with only Xbox gamers. I think most would be happy with that.
