I always knew some players were up to no good, cause their play style was just inhuman/artificial. Last night i confirmed it, i got mixed up with someone really nice which was using hacks. He demonstrated what he was able to do, yeah it felt like a trip back to legacy non-steam version, where everyone had to have JackeD trainer just to be able to compete . He told me he got fed up with player abusing him with hacks, so ended up giving into the darkside :(. He pointed out a few hackers right of the bat to me, since hackers always go a straight path to resources or players with resources . he was able to use his ESP past 400m , he was able to identified what weapon they was holding. Aimbot is not a problem since the program calculate bullet travel time and drop distance, so unless player your shooting avoid a straight path he will be dead. Players can still avoid by not maintaining a straight line path, since we know bullets are not instant hit
I am sure many of you are aware of hacks in rust, the most worst part is the those who hack control and abuse other players that don't use hacks. This hacks are not public, and they are not free , They are sold as membership with hacks for other games as well. They range from $20-$50+ a month, The only way to have a fair game is withing the first few hours of a patch. Since the hacks can take between 3-12 hours to update to current patch. I know what you guys are thinking, but i always see user kicked/banned from serer by anti-cheat. This might filter some hackers, outdated hacks, or even those hackers who abuse to the point where they don't even care about being caught anymore.
How can a regular player compete against someone with hacks?, if they can jump higher, fly, no-clip, run faster, Aim-bot, and have ESP on demand.
i know devs are doing what they can to keep hackers out, but it’s nearly impossible unless every server have active admins 24hrs.
Just in case you guys are getting rekt by a player over and over again , don’t give up or rage quit, just ignore them and have fun cause most likely they are using hacks. I just wish there was a way to filter out this hacks. By all means guys don’t use hacks, don’t give money to those programmers making a living on making codes to destroy a fun game.
