Hi
I am an ex pc gamer, but I am looking at a possible return. however my main concern is the situation with possible hackers/cheats. Is this a real problem these days, not just on games like bf4 but other fps games out there.
the zombie is alive!!! i bet it is.

Avoid Official servers, TDM with large player count, and Lockers/Metro, and most of the cheat problem will go away.

Yeah. That's all. Just don't play on about 50% of the populated servers out there.

Yeah, take it a step further and play on empty servers. No cheats guaranteed. lol

Stick to the campaign and test range and you'll be fine.

This game never had much of a hacking problem in my eyes, maybe it did, maybe it didn't. CSGO apparently has about 35% of their players cheating. They are unique, though because many people have a "legit" account and then a separate account where they cheat. You can safely assume at least 10% of the active player base is using some type of cheat.

One thing you shouldn't do is think about this while you are playing, it only makes you rage and play worse and it makes it much harder to improve. Assume there are no hackers unless you know without a doubt, and you will have a much better experience.

You sure? I think yesterday was the first day in the last two weeks I haven't seen a blatant aimbotter. I usually see 3 or 4 a day.

If you stay off "Official" servers and play on servers with good admins who take care of business then it usually isn't too bad. However from time to time EA does incredibly dumb things like the Gametime program which brings in a flood of hack users because they aren't risking anything by cheating even if they get caught. Lately EA has been dumping BF4 for five bucks, so guess what, there are a lot of suspicious players who don't care if they lose an account which only cost them five dollars. It all comes down to the servers where you play, and it takes time to figure out which servers are worthwhile.

That's because you only play on Metro, the game timers don't have the DLC's, and don't say "play on DLC maps then" because I shouldn't have to/there aren't many TDM DLC servers.

Not every game is sullied by cheaters. But it's a constant niggling problem. EA gives the game away completely for free via the Gametime program. That lets the cheaters have an unlimited, free supply of accounts to cheat on, and lets them cheat without any fear. They get banned, they get a new userid minutes later and continue. But Gametimers are limited to official servers with vanilla maps.

As well, most cheats seem to prefer TDM maps. Hence why the advice to not play on official or TDM servers, and especially not on official and TDM and vanilla maps. Official vanilla TDM is the holy grail for cheaters.

Ranked, Conquest, DLC maps... stick with those servers and the issue will be hugely reduced.

The reason you see lots of raging about cheaters really is simply because EA is demonstrating they don't give a flying fruitcake about the issue by keeping the Gametime 7-day trial program going continuously, despite knowing full well what it's doing to the game. They are the diametric opposite of Blizzard, who think fair gaming is important.

Most of the hackers play on official servers. I usually play on official servers and if I play for a few hours its almost guaranteed eventually a hacker will come in
