Battlefield 3: "Innocent"
Posted: Wednesday January 25th, 2012 by

Battlefield 3 is awash with hackers and cheaters. So to hear that hackers have now found an exploit (by way of Punkbuster) that allows them to effectively facilitate the banning of folks who are completely innocent doesn't surprise me at all. [more info]

Ultimately, this doesn't impact me because I've never played any of the Battlefield games and probably never will. But I thought it was worth bringing to your collective attentions. Apparently those who can be affected by the hack/ban are limited to the pool of PC users as Punkbuster is not a program associated with the console versions of the game.

Hackers like this are douchebags with a false sense of entitlement. They don't want to be told "you can't hack our game without consequences" so they hack and punish people who just want to enjoy the game too. It's the epitome of asshattery. Anywho, just wanted to shine a little spotlight on it.
