Max Payne 3 Cheaters Will Be Quarantined

A few bad apples are currently wreaking havoc in Max Payne 3's multiplayer. Today Rockstar acknowledged that cheating is an ongoing issue and promised to handle these offenders roughly.

Rockstar says that anyone using hacked saves, game modes, and other exploits for MP3's multiplayer will be quarantined from the general player population. They'll be restricted to a so-called "Cheaters Pool" with all of the other offenders. Deathmatches composed only of players using invincibility hacks should be fun.

It's possible that they will eventually forgive these cheaters and let them out of the "Cheaters Pool." However, they'll only get one second chance. Any additional cheating will lead to permanent banishing.

Banishment seems like the most player-friendly solution. While cheating is a crappy thing to do, the fact is that these misbehavers are paying customers. Providing them with an alternate way to keep playing online is an unexpected bit of mercy. It accomodates people who happen to share a computer/account with a cheater, too.

Rockstar is also taking steps to clean up the leaderboards. Many of the top spots were attained, naturally, by hackers. Over time the company will be whittling down the invalid leaderboard entries so that the truly best players get their chance to shine.

Should you encounter any MP3 cheaters in your travels, you're encouraged to send an e-mail to maxpayne3.banhammer@rockstargames.com with the following information:
  • Platform (PC, PS3 or Xbox 360)
  • Cheaterís Gamertag / ID
  • Description of the violation
  • If possible, please include concrete evidence, such as a video or a screenshot
Rockstar notes, though, that they're not going to ban campers. Yes, they're boring but they are not cheating.
