Halo Infinite’s multiplayer beta is facing a hacker problem, and a notable anti-cheat security account has shared concerns that this situation will be worse than Warzone’s.

Halo Infinite has a ton of fun content but the game is also facing a few problems. Aside from the glitch that de-ranks players after wins, there is also the issue of cheaters and hackers ruining matches.

Online multiplayer titles often have to deal with this problem, and one popular anti-cheat Twitter account is concerned that the Halo Infinite cheater situation might be worse than the one in Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone players frequently have to deal with cheaters, so the developers will be implementing the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat in the Pacific launch. There are concerns that Halo Infinite might need a similar system.

The Anti-Cheat Police Department Twitter account is known for understanding cheaters well, and they tweeted out that the new Halo title will end up like Warzone but “much worse.” They then proposed a possible solution to the devs.

“Release dedicated server clients to the community and you probably have the next CS:GO and the cheating situation helps solve itself, taking some of your burdens away,” they tweeted.

According to the Anti-Cheat Police Department, Halo Infinite’s detection system takes too long to detect cheaters, so making use of dedicated server clients will greatly reduce the problem.

They explained that the issue of cheaters will remain as long as Halo Infinite continues to use “in-game data detection to combat cheating.”

Halo Infinite devs respond to cheating concerns

While it’s unclear whether or not the developers will listen to this suggestion, 343 Industries are aware of the cheater problem, as Community Manager, John Junyszek responded to this problem on Twitter.

“Unfortunately, cheating is a natural part of supporting a F2P PC game and it’s one we anticipated,” he tweeted. It’ll never go away entirely, but we’re prepared and committed to releasing consistent improvements to our game’s systems and taking action on bad actors.”

He then let the fans know the game currently doesn’t have a “Report Player” feature, they can file reports against cheaters on the game’s support website, preferably with video evidence.

Hopefully, Halo Infinite’s anti-cheat measures will prevent the game’s situation from becoming as bad as Warzone’s. Until then, it remains to be seen if the developers consider giving players dedicated server clients.
