Halo Pro Accused Of Using Wall-Hacks Wins $10K Tournament
Having seen the Halo Championship Series be kicked off with resounding success, many teams are now looking towards the second series of the season to prove their worth and etch their names in the Infinite history books.
However, one player has been heavily accused of going too far to gain an advantage, as Built By Gamers' professional "Minds" has been accused of using wall-hack in a match against Kansas City Pioneers - with the opposition providing "evidence" of his cheats in action.
Halo Pro Accused Of 'Cheating' In Online $10k Event
Whilst competing in the 'Magic Mushroom Clubhouse NFT 10K' tournament, Pioneers were bested by BBG who took home the lions share of the prize. Following the result, BBG's "Druk" suspected foul play, and took to Twitter to provide "proof" that the champions were using wall-hacks.
"He just pre-fires me without even seeing me, I haven’t shot, his teammate hasn’t shot me, and he just puts a full burst into the pipe before he even sees me," Druk explained in his break-down.
The match went down to the wire with a deciding map being clutched 50-49, providing the opposition team plenty of material to filter through and continue to incriminate Minds.
Built By Gamers and Minds have enjoyed a positive start to life in competitive Halo Infinite, with their young roster having finished in the top 16 at HCS Raleigh, even knocking out the likes of Nick "NICKMERCS" Kolcheff and Damon "Karma" Barlow in the open qualifiers.
Minds Responds To 'Cheating' Accusations
Following the accusations, the player took to Twitter to deny the claims, claiming that he wouldn't risk his career by using such cheats.
He said, "I'm very saddened by the cheating allegations made against me today. I'm not a cheater and I take this game very seriously and would never jeopardize my career by cheating," before adding, "I'm open to any and all investigations that are necessary."
It's likely that the HCS organisation will launch their own investigations against Minds, and Built By Gamers, after showcasing their zero-tolerance against cheating when they banned Sentinels' "Royal2" just days before HCS Raleigh for a server manipulation.
