If you’re one of those people that’s having to deal with various cheating scumbags in Uncharted 4 multiplayer, and want to get rid of those lowlifes that use lag-switches and other such tools to augment their lacking skills, Naughty Dog has got you covered with a new section of its website.
If you come across a player in the Uncharted 4 multiplayer that you believe is cheating, all you have to do is pay a visit to the Naughty Dog website, specifically its Report page. Once you’re there, you’ll have to share details on what you think the cheating was (you will require a gif, video, or picture as proof).
Once that’s done, Naughty Dog will look for certain violations. These include: alteration of the game code, modified game software, modified game hardware, manipulation of in-game systems, exploiting environmental geometry, manipulation of connectivity (aka lag switching), and boosting.
Any of these, if you have the right amount of proof for it, will likely cause a banning of that player, or at least a suspension of their ability to play Uncharted 4 multiplayer.
Since cheating both on consoles and PC has become much more widespread across various games that have multiplayer, more and more studios are taking steps to attempt to curtail cheating among their playerbases. Ubisoft’s The Division has instituted an anti-cheating system as players began using aimbots, making themselves invincible, and more.
Blizzard, on the other hand, has undoubtedly been the most successful, with Overwatch’s anti-cheating system not only banning them from Overwatch, but also banning their IP address, their hardware ID, and their Battle.net account (which has caused a great deal of salt from the sort of entitled scumbags the anti-cheating software is designed to target).
Either way, hopefully Naughty Dog’s attempts to curtail cheating on the Uncharted 4 multiplayer will bear fruit, and that soon we’ll be able to see people actually playing fair on the multiplayer.
