Halo Infinite fans furious at 343 Industries’ efforts to curb cheating
In their latest blog, Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries outlined their plans to tackle cheaters in the game. There were plenty of details about the actions taken by the developer. However, there didn’t appear to be any plans for a kernel-level anti-cheat for the game, and that pissed off fans.
Anti-cheat measures are essential for any game with active multiplayer to ensure fair gameplay. However, the demand for a good anti-cheat solution in Halo Infinite is more due to its greater accessibility due to the fact that it is a free game.
The same goes for Call of Duty Warzone. Activision continues to regularly update Ricochet to catch and ban users, and fans apparently expected the same with the latest Halo title.
Lack of kernel-level anti-cheat irritated Halo Infinite fans
One user felt that without a proper anti-cheat solution, the game would shut down despite the planned addition of new content in Season 2. The same person also said that Microsoft should follow Activision’s lead and take the bold decision to introduce something along the season. Ricochet lines.
Another player wondered why 343 Industries never opted for Easy Anti-Cheat again. EAC has a reputation as an efficient software that could have reduced the workload of developers.
One player hinted that the developer simply took the easy route by removing the red crosshair instead of working on implementing better anti-cheat software.
A fan felt that the blog was unnecessary and that the developer needed to add something substantial.
The player’s sentiment above was echoed by another who felt he really didn’t find anything worthwhile in the last blog post.
One fan found removing red crosshairs to combat cheaters to be ineffective. On the contrary, he added, it reduced PC gamer satisfaction.
The removal of the red reticle certainly didn’t go down well with some fans who see it as an omission of a quality of life feature.
Whatever 343 Industries plans for the removal of the red crosshairs are quite different from what fans are interpreting.
Finally, some simply voiced a popular complaint asking for new content to be featured so players would be enticed to play Halo Infinite.
Reactions to today’s blog post revealed some displeasure among Halo Infinite fans, with many feeling that 343 Industries needs to create a proper anti-cheat that doesn’t sacrifice quality of life features.
