In response to the claims, developer Jon Shiring can be quoted as saying “we have anti-cheat but it is not enabled yet – it will be soon. This is important to us” and we are starting to [ Catch the cheaters] now. It’s useful to watch them a bit without revealing your hand.

This fix could not seem to come at a better time, as many users are reporting wide spread cheating.The most common seeming to be aimbots, aimbots for those who dont know, redirect the users aim to lock on to a foe, giving them a godlike advantage when it comes to CQC and long distance shootouts.
Users are devided over the method that the team is using to catch the cheaters, with one saying ” That approach turns non-cheaters off from the game. If I can’t play when it comes out I won’t come back.” while another states “think of it like valves approach; let them be free a few months, then catch them all at once. Good in the long run.”
