SOE Vows Planetside 2 Aimbot Crackdown

Yesterday, PCGamesN brought us the news that some dicks have managed to hack Planetside 2 and insert aimbots into the game. The aimbot snaps your reticule to enemies as soon as they appear on your screen, giving you a huge, and hugely dickish advantage of players who play fair. PCGamesN reached out to SOE for comment, and received this response from senior public relations manager Taina Rodriguez:

We are aware of the issue. SOE takes player use of in-game cheats very seriously. Players who use cheats ruin the gameplay experience for the entire community and SOE will continue to be extremely aggressive in detecting and banning players who use cheats.

Hopefully, this means the Aimbot is removed soon. What about you, Game Fronters? Have you been playing Planetside 2 and found yourself a victim of the cheat?

I haven’t noticed any aimbots personally, I imagine the EU server is full of em though.

I have noticed four speedhackers in the last two days.
