so many of you saying everyone is hacking, how can you see that? just because he have 10-0? well i did that tho a few times, but im not hacking

I look more for something like 112-3. I get accused of hacking when I get 16-0 and that sucks almost as much as having to deal with actual hackers.

Just finished playing a map where Bumblebee_AA_2 and Iloveallruskies had over 200kills between the both of them. No one is that good.

If we had a way to vote/kick players when an admin is not around - the PLAYERS could handle these cheaters in real time. Yes, some innocent player who is having a good round may get kicked... If one or two are complaining of someone cheating... they are just butt hurt - but when the whole server is saying something about it - then we need a tool to handle that...

I look at hackers' kill cam for signs of aimbot.

I got kicked from a game becaue I was 16-2, guarding the m-cons from a near retarted team using a hand gun. So clearly, you look for people with a k/d of 8 or more using simple methods vs a shoddy team

Or if someone is getting more kills then the rest of the players in the game maybe...

I think hackrs are super rare anyways

This is a good thread but woefully under answered. After reading everything I STILL have no idea how to reliably spot a Hacker. I get the idea of ridiculous stats... but I'll be honest in that ANY time I see someone with upwards or 10 kills and ZERO deaths I tend to feel something isn't right.. These servers are just too full of people and it just doesn't SEEM possible to ME that ANYONE regardless of skill could manage that. Still, clearly some people are very fairly doing just that and I just don't wanna start point the finger at people for being better than me. I do however want to start busting peoples' balls for cheating in a meaningful and effective way so... could we get a real answer with explanations on HOW to do the things suggested? I.E... "I look at the hackers' kill cam for signs of aimbot" WHAT Killcam? How does one view this? I have looked and found nothing and would appreciate a bit more explanatory instructions (ie literally step by step on how to do what is suggested).

Giving examples of people that ARE cheaters does NOTHING to explain to someone how to SPOT a cheater (and by SPOT I don't mean SUSPECT, I mean KNOW) aside from the just egregiously obvious.

There was a guy in one of the servers recently who was getting one and two shot kills consistently against our team. I didn't think anything about that until he was still getting those kills with TANK ROUNDS. No, this wasn't splash damage. He was killing players with tank round head shots from a couple hundred meters, one after another.

There really needs to be a way to report suspicious activity like this to DICE/EA.

When you see a guy standing (yes, standing) on top of a roof with a m249 spinning around like a time lapse video of a weather vane, killing someone after every rapid robotic movement ending up with 104-6 that's a dead giveaway.

Elsille - I get that... thus my point that I realize some folks are just better than me. I grasp that my own opinions don't drive the reality of the game. But that also elucidates my other point that it's simply difficult to tell at times. Not EVERY hacker is dumb enough to pull the tricks you guys describe and there HAS to be a better way to use what we have to spot this. Let's go to this Kill Cam that was mentioned... again HOW DOES ONE VIEW THIS!!!!!!?????

I have to be honest.
That happened in Bad Company 2 but the fact that you can sometimes tell by looking at them still applies.
