It’s pretty evident that regardless of where DougisRaw is, the cheating Halo Infinite player immediately locates him—and others—to insta-click heads. Whether he’s hiding behind cover or not even in the frame at all, the cheater always knows. And this is thanks to both aimbots and wallhacks, mods that help automate target acquisition and alter the properties of walls, respectively.
DougisRaw isn’t the only person showcasing Halo Infinite cheaters in all their unceremonious glory. Over on the game’s subreddit, user KanoxHD posted a video of themselves also getting killed by someone using an aimbot. Just watch how the reticle finds and follows players instantly.
It should be fine to be bad at games. Everyone starts from somewhere, after all. Equally, it should also be fine to learn how to get better at games. That’s often what makes them fun—growing and improving your skills. But resorting to cheats just to get a high K/D ain’t it. And while 343 Industries has said there needs to be anti-cheat in competitive games, especially those like Halo Infinite that are cross-play between PC and Xbox consoles, it’s unclear what steps the developer will take to address these issues.
As Halo Infinite players have cheaters to contend with, fans of the game are pretty pissed about the battle pass’ progression. There have been some improvements, and 343 Industries did give out a bonus gift for all the troubles, but the backlash particularly around cosmetics is still intensifying.
I’ve certainly noticed the last couple days, compared to the first week, running for cover and dying even though I was past the corner already, so I’m a bit skeptical of the netcode or cheaters right now (although more cheaters/aimbots for the reason below).
It’s weird too because last week I played a few hours with someone in Australia and the UK at the same time and it felt great.
