Defense against the Glitchers

**Okay guys, here’s the deal.
As Admins, and **legitimate **players, we all need to seriously work together to fend of the “glitchers” and cheaters of the game.

**I think one of the first steps, is that we should share and combine ALL of our Banned SteamIDs. ** To me, this feels like one of the first lines of defense we can throw out there since nothing is being done yet and the problem is growing exponentially worse. The second step, is having every player possible, and yourself, report those SteamID/Profiles for cheating.

Start listing them in this thread, AS MANY AS YOU WANT. This will very well heavily prevent the “glitchers” from Steamrolling through servers causing pathetic and silly chaos and prevent them from ever playing the game again once it’s more stable and the Devs of the game actually decide to show some thought/care about their creation and playerbase.

Also, I HIGHLY recommend any of you Admins or Server Owners seek a Third Party Anti-Cheat to be put into your Rust server - As it would be useful even years down the road. I’ve asked HFB Servers to do the same, and I am waiting on an answer.

My list so far:

banid 76561198113377131
banid 76561198121710462

Copied straight from my cfg\bans.cfg file.

Also, please do not refer to the Glitchers as Hackers, they are nowhere near “hacking” and do not deserve that title.

I fully support this. For now it seems a reasonable defense, especially for those of us who have rather small servers that are very easily overrun by just a couple cheaters.
Here is my current ban-list: (some of these are just assholes who got banned just for being assholes, or people who used special characters and refused to change them)
banid 76561197978134915

banid 76561197971914015
banid 76561198105462038

I’ll leave my list up for now… but I just had a thought that could make this whole thread go downhill fast.
Ppl can get anyone’s steamid64, meaning someone could potentially troll this thread and post legitimate players’ steamids.
Thoughts? I guess if an admin gets banned it’s not a big deal since it can easily be reversed… but i dunno.

EDIT #2:
I think this thread started off with good intentions, however it did quickly roll downhill and is no longer viable, imo.

I’m with you on this one, here is my share:

Because you can trust everyone on Facepunch to list only valid hacker steam ids.

Case in point.

I agree, hence my edit after the fact xD

this is a bad idea lol, i’ve been banned from servers just because the admins were dickheads ( i wasted a ton of ammo on some asshole in godmode, then complained about it, so i was banned), and that wasn’t the server owner, so an owner could easily post a list with such bans like that from their admins without knowing

Definitely don’t do this. I’ve never been banned, so I don’t really have to worry, but this could so easily be abused. Sounds like a recipe for having someone slip in an ID of someone they don’t like and getting them banned to a lot of servers.

Please don’t use this. The reason something like VAC ban lists is that VAC bans them only if they’re being hackers, with this the admin could have banned someone that they just didn’t like.

Too bad VAC takes 1 week to 4 months to do that. VAC may not detect people corrupting their game files either, as opposed to easily detecting a third party program like an aimbot.

Hopefully you are 100% about the guys on the list you’ve provided considering this post,

Well we know at least that it detects hacks, but only the people that developed it and the people that implement it into their game know what it doesn’t look for.

Here’s my list:

The Ugly, could you just copy it out of your bans.cfg file?

Thanks for this thread, this will help me alot with my server :slight_smile: but im wondering, what type of glitch’s are there right now? so i know what to look out for.

Eleganze, right now there are certain .dll, data files of rust, and framework items that people can delete, move, alter, or otherwise corrupt, that causes glitches in their game(like super speed or clipping through walls/doors) and carries over to whatever server they log on to. There are also of course, third party applications, that show you data(location of people/minerals/structures) on everything, act as an aimbot, duplicating items, etc.

That’s all I know of atm.

I would not use other admins ban lists that I do not know cause I have no idea if maybe someone just banned people cause they THOUGHT they were hacking. I am not really keen on using OTHER admins banlists but I will share mine with you guys.

I check all players that have reports of hacks with invis gear and make sure I have seen them my self either glitching into a base or headshooting me from across a field while I am invis before I ban anyone. MOST of the bans are glitchers though that I just caught going thru peoples walls.

Great advice Teamvortex.

Ok, I’m thinking on one thing…

I will make a website for admins, like a page where admins can add their bans info (Steamid, Nick, Reason).

What do you think about?

That will still get abused in the same way the list that’s been created here in this thread will be abused. It’s just a bad idea all around.
