Im with leesy on this. It's still going on, and pb is open to hacks itself. But basically, if someone is using an aimbot - you'll know about it. If you spec them you will see impossible speed and ridiculous kill-to-death ratio. Aimbots come in 2 shapes: those that lock on to a target; and those that tell the cheater that the shot 'has been acquired'. This last one simply tells them WHEN to shot. The first one, the 'lock on' one, auto targets for them. Its then impossible for the target to shake the lock. All the cheater then has to do it pull the triger. But as for accusations of cheating when not doing so. I get it all the time. I even get kicked for cheating even though Im just being good. But never get kicked by PB. You see the thing is, a lot of people dont know the diff between cheaters and good players. The only way to be sure is to spectate the suspect, and demo them. Then, if your still not sure, ask someone else. But above all - dont accuse or kick someone till your sure.

torotrakman Ive seen some killcams of me dying today, and some of the shots got nowhere near my head but I still died!!! Is this a sign of someone using aimbot???? Thanks Andy

doubt it. they werent aiming at you ie they had bad aim, but bullets can go off target esspecially if they're moving/not using sights. so a bullet (or enough of them) went 'off target' (

The thing to understand is that becase of lag, your bullet doesn't actually hit for at least 1/20th of a second after you click the mouse button. Therefore, you have to aim where your target will be 1/20th of a second in the future. Furthermore, because your computer predicts where you are, you have to aim as if you were shooting from where you were 1/20th of a second ago. It makes it complicated, and it often makes it look like your bullets all went through a guy's chest when they really hit nothing but air.

Also, if your crosshair is exactly on a guy's head when you shoot, you get an automatic headshot, regardless of whether you're aiming down the sight or not. That's why there's a rediculous number of random headshots.

PB is only as good as the hacks they know about.. They appreciate any info on hacks that people can send them so they can work on them..its an ongoing process. new hacks no PB updates etc... I have watched myself tracked from behind on killcam by an enemy in POWcamp everytime he came round a corner I had already gone round the next so he never actually saw me on the screen. The only way you could see I was there was by the white arrow which shows your position.. Funny thing was the guy opened fire as soon as he came round the corners, but I wasnt there and there was nothing else to shoot at.. This went on for about four more corners exactly the same, he would sprint round a croner only to open fire at the arrow's position but I was already behind the next wall.. The first I knew he was chasing me was when I stopped to take aim on a guy in a tower and BANG . . that was the first time I saw my self on his screen... It wasnt that he chased me it was the fact he opened fire on my position with walls in the way..

After playing COD and UO, I have discovered one "server quirk." Apparently, the servers get overloaded or something, because even though I have a ping of 45ms, I run into games where I shoot the guy 6 times with a BAR without killing them(in a straight on run at them) , and some of these guys pop me once and I'm down. I have seen where I am playing crappy with low kill response one game, and when the server switches to the next game, it is like I have armor on and I am flying through a room full of guys killing everyone and no one can touch me. I used to think there was some sort of cheating going on, but I see it on most games I play. I call it the LAG GODS! Sometimes they smile on you, other times they crap on you. If you go to a game where you are getting wiped out by "Miracle" shots and you can't even kill them with a grenade, then switch servers. Sometimes I have to hop about six or more servers to get a game that is responding right to my shots.:mEk:
