Halo Infinite cheaters emerge on PC; console players want cross-play toggle

Aimbots have arrived...

Halo Infinite cheaters are becoming more apparent on PC, causing console players to ask for the option to disable cross-play until a fix for manipulation is found.

The internet is awash with clips of PC players using both wallhacks and aimbots to deliver crushing defeats to those playing without such cheats.

The video embedded above shows both — the blue outlines (wallhacks) around players make it extremely easy for the cheater to see where opponents are at all times, while the aimbots take care of the no scope sniping.

The Halo Subreddit has started to detail experiences as well.

“Played against these earlier today,” said Hugh_Jankles. “It’s painfully obvious when someone is cheating… [and] honestly quite pathetic.”

While players do not have the ability to toggle cross-play at present, you can report players using cheating tools using Halo Infinite‘s social menu — we’ve detailed how to get into that area as part of our guide on how to mute specific players. It’s a bit tricky to figure out who’s cheating on the fly though, as Infinite doesn’t offer up killcams to see how you died last. Worse yet, there are reports that some cheaters are blocking Theatre replays to hide their tracks.

Thankfully, some cheaters are a little bit stupid and have decided to stream at the same time they’re manipulating the game. Case in point: a Twitch streamer by the name of Ethanoill.

At the time of writing, Ethanoill has been banned from Twitch.

We’ll report back as we learn more on Infinite cheaters and 343’s response to them.

Halo Infinite multiplayer is now live on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Single-player heads to the title on 8 December. Check out our Halo Infinite review in progress right here.
