How to Turn Off Anti-Cheat in Halo Reach

The first perk that players are getting through the modding community is the feature that allows the players to turn off the Halo: Reach anti-cheat.

Though this feature stops you from playing matchmade game modes, you can play around in campaign matches and custom modes.

It was quoted in the weekly discussion thread of subreddit, “We’re still working to improve this down the road, but for now you will have an option when you launch to bypass anti-cheat. This will allow you to play around with campaign and customs but not allow you to play any matchmade games.”

The process to turn off anti-cheat in Halo MCC on PC is extremely simple and doesn’t require any extensive knowledge of modding or altering files.

You simply have to launch the game! Yes, that is correct. Just launch Halo Reach MCC on PC and you will see the option.


Accessing the game via the Xbox App, you can choose between Halo: The Master Chief Collection or Halo: MCC anti-cheat disabled.

If you are launching it on Steam you are going to be asked if you’d like to run the game with or without anti-cheat.

With the addition of mods, the game is now long term, more fun and exciting with the inclusion of a seasonal battle pass, exactly the way you would want Halo to be.

With mods support, players will be able to set out the limitations accordingly to their preferences.
