Max Payne 3 Cheaters – YOU BETTER WATCH OUT!
Rockstar has announced some upcoming methods to deal with those people who are ruining Max Payne for the rest of us. Said methods are only a step below going door-to-door and warning the neighbors you are a sex offender.
While Max Payne 3 isn’t exactly ripe with people using unscrupulous means to achieve max level and advantages over other players, there are a few of them out there. Rockstar has stated, via their blog, that they will be bringing down semi-banhammer sometime in the very near future. Interestingly enough, people who are found to be using hacked or modded saves or any other exploit won’t be banned from online play, they’ll merely be quarantined.
Players who are found to be unfit to play with the rest of us will be quarantined to the “Cheater’s Pool”, and will only be able to play with other people from the pool. Rockstar has also vaguely mentioned absolution from the pool, though once in the cheater zone all bets are, essentially, off.
Anyone found to have used hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, or to circumvent the leaderboards will be quarantined from all other players into a “Cheaters Pool”, where they’ll only be able to compete in multiplayer matches with other confirmed miscreants. In the event we decide to absolve any of these cheaters for their past transgressions they may re-enter play with the general public, however a second offense will result in their indefinite banishment. In either case, we will be removing invalid leaderboard entries to ensure that the players at the top of the charts have earned their spots fairly.
If you suspect someone of cheating or modding their game in any other way, Rockstar has requested you contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include platform information, cheater’s gamertag, description of the violation and, if possible, screen-shots or video evidence.
