Battlefield 2042 Will Permanently Ban Cheaters Without Warning Them

Cheaters and FPS titles go hand in hand in 2021. Maybe it’s an upgrade from the screeching slurs and toxicity of the lobbies of yesteryear, but still, cheating is no doubt a problem for the modern shooter.

Just look at Warzone - few games have been dominated by cheaters and hackers like it, and its presence in the gaming community is tainted.

Many have been nervous about the arrival of Battlefield 2042 - imagining that the FPS competitor could suffer a similar fate. Thankfully, it looks like DICE isn’t willing to take any chances.

Battlefield Will Be Ruthless With Cheaters

DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to cheating, but that it will be resting on the services of Easy Anti-Cheat (commonly regarded as EAC) to catch out its hackers.

This means that if players are caught cheating, there’s no messing about and they’ll be axed from the game permanently. Sometimes there will be no warning whatsoever. Blimey.

Banned players will be able to appeal their bans later on EA Help, but the ban is pretty expansive, blacklisting the cheaters from every platform of the game.

Which begs the question - how serious do DICE think cheating is going to be?

How Bad Will Battlefield 2042’s Cheating Problem Be?

Battlefield 2042 is at risk of being infiltrated by hackers, but if DICE is prepared to silence cheaters even before launch, chances are they’ll be able to keep it at bay for the most part. The trouble with Warzone only truly arose because they only started to meaningfully deal with cheaters after it was too late, and the problem was too widespread to make an actual dent in their numbers.

Battlefield is learning from Call of Duty’s mistakes, it would seem, and it's cracking down hard before the cheaters have a chance to get through the gate.

It’s good news for fans of the franchise, and it’s a good sign of things to come from Battlefield. Now here’s hoping the cheater hunters don’t drop the ball.
