Rockstar issues warning to Max Payne 3 cheaters
Rockstar Games has sent a strong message to the "small minority" of players who are ruining the Max Payne 3 multiplayer experience with cheats and hacks.
"We'd like to make it clear that anyone using these nefarious methods will be dealt with," Rockstar warned.
While forthcoming title updates should put an end to this sort of behavior, Rockstar also revealed additional measure they are taking to keep Max Payne 3 a clean and fun game.
Anyone found to have used hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, or to circumvent the leaderboards will be quarantined from all other players into a "Cheaters Pool", where they'll only be able to compete in multiplayer matches with other confirmed miscreants. In the event we decide to absolve any of these cheaters for their past transgressions they may re-enter play with the general public, however a second offense will result in their indefinite banishment. In either case, we will be removing invalid leaderboard entries to ensure that the players at the top of the charts have earned their spots fairly.
The studio is asking players to report any suspected cheats by emailing the following information to email@example.com:
- Platform (PC, PS3 or Xbox 360)
- Cheater's Gamertag/ID
- Description of the violation
- If possible, please include concrete evidence, such as a video or a screenshot
