Since the Battlefield 3 beta isn’t using any anti-cheat software (like PunkBuster), it didn’t take long before cheaters managed to cook up some hacks for the game, including the ever-popular wall-hacks (as seen on the image above). Over the past few days, cheating has been rampant in the beta, and the guys at DICE have taken notice.
DICE community manager Ian Tornay created an official thread on Battlelog where users can report cheaters they encounter in the Battlefield 3 beta. DICE will take a look at all reports and ban anyone found guilty of cheating. It’s unknown whether it’s only their access to the beta that will be banned, or their entire Origin account.
DICE has also pointed out that all their efforts are now geared towards finishing and polishing the final product, and not the beta. Which there will be no updates in the beta, but many of the issues you see in the beta — including bugs, hacks etc. — will be fixed in the final game.
