If you feel like you may have encountered a cheater in Halo Infinite multiplayer, then you might want to read on.
In its latest developer blog, 343 has gone into detail about the anti-cheat system in place for its latest release - outlining many of the strategies it has taken to minimise cheaters in-game. If you don't have time to read up on it all - in short, the developer remains "committed" to the cause and won't wait to deliver updates that put a stop to cheating:
"We are committed to continuously improving our anti-cheat systems and strategies. We added a few improvements in our mid-season update and we will drop updates to address cheating as soon as they become available (rather than waiting for another large patch to ship with)."
Something else 343 is looking into is a requirement to play a certain number of multiplayer games before players can queue for ranked games - stopping cheaters from simply creating new accounts to evade enforcement actions:
"One way that we’re adding additional friction to people creating new accounts is introducing a requirement to play a certain number of multiplayer games before you can queue for ranked games. We’re currently planning to set this number at 25 games – though that may change before we enable this – as we think this not only to keeps the player out of ranked for a while but also gives our other systems a chance to detect them as a current or recurring cheater. We expect this will also help new players find their footing in social playlists before they jump right into the more challenging Ranked experience."
Players of Halo Infinite's multiplayer are encouraged to continue reporting cheaters via the Halo Support site at aka.ms/HaloReportAPlayer.
