A few days ago we reported that there was already an aimbot and wall hack cheat for Star Citizen’s FPS mode Star Marine. CIG are now looking to address the problem.
Cheat prevention in Star Citizen and Squadron 42 is a priority for us, and we have gathered lots of feedback from internal and external sources since the initial release of Star Marine. Rest assured, we have already begun banning violators as well as working on short-term, and long-term solutions for preventing the use of 3rd party programs.
Requesting video evidence helps us achieve a few things – It substantiates claims made by players, which we compare with our internal data, and it helps us improve the functionality of our tools to better combat cheaters proactively.
I’ve collected some feedback from this thread and will send it to the appropriate party so that our messaging is more clear going forward.
It’s a bit strange CIG is asking for video evidence to be sent over indicating that there is really nothing in place at all to tackle this right now. Hopefully this will be sorted as development progresses because cheating in shooters can be a real problem.
