This is not because I want to cheat, but because i want to know if it is even possible to cheat in this game. Now i'm talking like typing some sort of code into the console giving you some advantages. Reason it that I was accused of cheating in a game earlier this day, which I wasn't. I was merc, confronting these two spies who was going totally aggro on me having inf. lives. I was alone and had about ten lives i think. Now at first I was doing kinda bad but then I got warmed up and started to beat them a bit. In the end, they won and then in the lobby the one who wasn't host acussed me of cheating. Shot him through a wall or something he said. Then he kicked me. What a jerk. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

unfortunately, it is most definately possible to cheat. most of the cheats I've heard about were before 1.2 so I don't know of some of them were fixed in the patch or not. I can't believe the patch would get all of them though.

Here's a couple things I've personally encountered:

Permanent SpyBullet/SpyTrap active the entire game on both opposing team members

Spies with frag grenades

Stuff I've heard about from people I trust but not personally witnessed:

Mercs running at spy speed
Mercs being able to mantle ledges
Spies not showing up on EMF even with goggles on
Spies not showing up on motion sensor even when running

I was playing on a game with a friend (it was his server) the other day and this guy kept accusing him of "lag cheating" apparently, there's some way to lag the server at will (although I can't imagine how laggin everyone helps you or how you could just lag the opposing team and not your own but that's beside the point).

A couple hours later, someone else said the same thing. My friend was having ISP problems that day and every once and a while, there would be some packet loss which would result in a couple seconds of lag... but it was only every few minutes so it was no big deal.

Nevertheless, there must be some way people are using this to their advantage because how else would these two different people have heard of it?


I really hope they get these all stamped out of existence soon.

np. if you're interested in the perma spy trap story...

-hospital
-partner and I are next to each other and get killed by the same grenade. I'd been suspicious of the opponents (one of which was the server host btw) and I said to my partner, immediately after respawning in the sewer: "man I hate to say it but I think these guys might be cheating"
-"NO WE'RE NOT" was typed across my screen from one of them
-I said "how did you hear me?"
-he said "you're on spy trap, I've got you hacked"
-I said "dude, you just killed both of us and we haven't moved from the spawn point.. how is it that you have us hacked?"
-***the host has ended the session***

I've seen mercs running at spy speed. I'll back it up as a possible cheat or bug.

There have been many inconsistancies with the game and the players in the game. I've pretty much given up on SC:PT for now. I'll play a game or two once in awhile, but I'm not even going to bother being competitive.

i hope this game doesn't get ruined by cheats.

one thing that happened to me was:

a merc had his laser on and could see me through boxes with it.

WOW REALLY?

Yea, I heard about those guys.

They can also see you in the ceiling if they use EM vision and your using your gun.

and can shoot through the wall-divider in the siderooms of 202 on hospital

and can shoot through ceilings!


Yea, its not called cheating, its just part of the game.

I played against a cheater once. One of those people that changed something to give spies frag grenades. I ended up killin him and his partner alone and they quit http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

before 1.2 it would glitch and leave the hack on after the spy was dead for the full length of the spytrap. might still do it sometimes after the patch, glitchy game and all.

Before 1.2 it was an easy gltich. Simply hold down the hack comms and don't let go. Whether they die or not they'll be tagged to the full length of the trap. Thats how it used to work at lest. Not anymore thank goodness.
