Default What's the Deal With Cheaters?!?

Ever been playing on xbox live,specifically first person shooters, going in for a kill then some how you're facing the sky? What about been shot from a glitch point? What's the point of playing a game if you are so lacking in skill that you have to resort to cheap tricks and lag switches? Anyone agree, or am I the last surviving gamer who relies on pure skill and tactics?

You are not... I totally agree with you, but its not just in FPS games, but even in games like H.A.W.X... In that game, people relying on lag are all but unbeatable, as their planes keep jumping around, so they cant almost be targeted by missiles, and lets not even talk about the machine gun... Damn... Those sons of bitches should be banned...

It's dumb. What's the point? I know that if I'm not good at a game online I'm just not going to play it. I know it takes time to get use to maps, and gain skill, but if you gotta cheat just give up. Atleast there aren't people with modded controlers around any more, atleast I've not seen any. It's still bullshit though. You go out buy a game for sixty plus dollars, get it home, go online and instantly regret your purchase.

People cheat for a multitude of reasons. Some do it because they enjoy greifing the other players, others because they wouldn't be able to win without cheats or because they enjoy finding such exploits. The list goes on. I, for one, look down upon cheating in multiplayer. It's just a douchebag thing to do.

If you're playing against people who are using glitchs to win, blame the game studio for not patching the game. Games that have a large online community (CoD, MoH, Battlefeild, ect) should be patched for bugs on a regular basis.

Modded controlers go against the User agreement for my online services, so users of them should be banned.

This is one of the reasons I never play any competitive multiplayer.

Couldn't agree more with Stella. I play Modern Warfare 2 an obscene amount and nothing gets me riled like the obvious wallhackers and aimboters. I would like to drop a real life predator missile on them for sure.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
