With every hot, new FPS that comes out, a new group of cheaters is spawned. On Friday, Electronic Arts tweeted that they’ve been busy banning accounts that have been taking advantage of Battlefield 3 glitches.
Here’s a related statement from EA: “We’ve banned hundreds of hackers this week alone, and we are determined to punish the players who play without integrity. A patch is just around the corner, and we will continue to ban cheaters. We take it seriously. That is our attitude here at Battlefield. We have zero tolerance for cheating players and are banning more all of the time.”
Meanwhile, a separate patch is being released soon in order to mitigate the effects of a certain weapon add-on. The new patch will weaken the flashlight attachment at distances, which has been used to blind opponents even in broad daylight.
