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

Easy way to know someone is hacking is if they are spotting people right at the begining of the game when the timer is still running. How the hell can you spot someone in their base waiting for timer to run down unless they are cheating? If you hear someone spotting right off the get go, someone is hacking.

Leaderboards. The first few pages have people with more than 1k spm. Look I know some people are good. I get that, but nobody averages 81k per minute. I mean seriously, how have these guys not been removed from the game yet?

If you get suspicions look up the players profile and look at K/D, total kills, total Deaths time played and headshots these should give you a good idea if something is not right. Then look at the Platoons the player is a member of and the official websites for those platoons. I've seen some on here like TheDefaced or YouHack which link directly to Hacking websites and forums where they have hacks for all the Battlefield games. Make sure you report the player and platoon using the little warning triangle button on the top right section of profiles, may be eventually EA will do something about them.

Another trick is to just randomly shout hacker in to chat and see if anyone is stupid to reply...how do they know your talking about them???

ive given up on crying HACKER on some people with huge KDR.

but if u look at the scoreboard and somebody's WAAAAY ahead of everyone's else in terms of points, but he doesn't have that many kill, and that score is steadily rising for the last minute?

yeah, exploit.

OMG, thanks. I was hoping there was something like that. It's so freaking tiny on the user profile page that it's nigh invisible.

REkAB_01... that one was actually pretty clever :) As for the others... FOLKS... we GET it... look at profile... unrealistic stats... but this has specifically been put aside as a valid answer already. We are talking in game real time. Further... at some point those stats that look unrealistic to you and me come down to a point where it's not always obvious so then who gets to decide. I don't want to GUESS and ACCUSE I want to KNOW and to PROVE and see BANNED.

One thing I did just learn - Not what I wanted but it does make the advice of speccing profiles out more useful... when you check their battlelogs and ALL their servers that they play on are always PB:Off... that's probably a pretty sure bet. On a side note... since I am new to BF in general... why do they even ALLOW servers with PB off? I don't get it... it's ok to cheat on some servers but not others? Makes no sense to me.

You are an idiot. Have you ever seen a aimbot in use before? I don't think you have.

Sniper often get accused as hacker when they made to the top of MVP with headshot bonus + killspree bonus. This score made a lot people so jelly and rage because they dont get MVP ribbon with 40-60+ kills while sniper get MVP with only10-20 kill. It has always been like this.

If the rounds are way shorter than normal rounds, if a person who has insane stats only stays for 1 round after they kicked the ever living shit out of everyone, or believe it or not...for reasons unknown to me, a lot of hackers bitch a lot and make arrogant comments while they are doing all this. What I liked about COD was that I could observe other players through their eyes while they played. As an admin I used that a lot to catch hax. It was a very effective weapon against them. I don't know why they don't keep that option for all other games.
But its generally very easy to spot a hack in a server. There is a difference between an annyoingly good player and a shitty player who hacks.

Just got off a server the administrator had 87-0 k/d what a joke. He would spawn on the tallest build in the map that had no way to get to him. Plus using aimbot I every time I would spawn at my base I would get shot in the head.After 15 head shots I decided it is time to leave. BF3 is a fun game but if dice does not do something about this I really think this game is going to die.

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.
i wouldn't call you a hacker.... more like a camper

Aye that all fine and dandy, but when a player like xbadkiller100x gets over 190 kills no deaths then you see he is hacking, like his gun flying all over the shop, and in the uncap red zones, no way is that skill its just lame and very very low, also those on here that defend them are just as lame, they just can resist flaming folk down, with one line replies, really does show there mental retard state.

take apeek and see for yourself

Have a happy new year one and all.
Furthermore, senior executives are also being accused of cashing in on the misleading statements by dumping thousands of stocks, “selling more than $13.2 million of stock at fraud-inflated prices.”

Hacker don't always have retarded score some of them actually turn their hack on and off. On e a side note today I was on this server and I was in a tank....I melted the other team on Karkand finised 80-10 and this guys on the other side was on foot the whole game and got 93-4....maybe he was THAT good but I doubt it.
Not interested.

How to spot a cheater?

Quite easy:

Find someone who has never seen a cheater:

elsille said:
hm jeah that "you are a cheater" thing is everywhere.... a lot of people think low rank = low skill .... and because of i got a k/d ratio of 3 .... (playing sniper all the time) , they call you cheater.....

Check his stats:

62% headshots with M16A3
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/elsille/iteminfo/m16a3/212935845/pc/ [battlelog.battlefield.com]

66% headshots with AK74
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/elsille/iteminfo/ak-74m/212935845/pc/ [battlelog.battlefield.com]

Additionally he hides his Battlelogs and has a stellar KDR of 2.8.

Done, spotted a cheater!

Only call hack if it's blatantly obvious (no 2.8 KDR and good headshot rate doesn't cut it)

something along these lines however....

You really believe 60% headshots don't provide enough evidence? ^^

Jeez, most cheaters try to hide their artificial assistance so you have to look carefully. There is no way to get 60% headshots with automatic rifles by legit playing. Just look at some stats and then learn something about the mighty powers of statistics and Gaussian distribution. After that you may come back to reevaluate your statement.

And what's the bet that EA/DICE do NOTHING at all.
