How to stop a hacker with infinite health

37 replies 2682 views Edited Sep 14, 2013

First of, I don't know if this is a well known fact or even if it's been posted before, but it can't hurt letting more people know.  

 

Today in Deathmatch, me and my friend ran into a hacker with infinite health and was spaming endless RPG and Hammer shots, I switched to my Cloaked loadout and managed to snap their neck, I didn't get a kill from it, but what happened was even better, they were stuck and couldn't move/respawn, unable to do anything, they quit.  They were at 19-0 which made it even funnier.   Even better, me and my friend managed to turn the game around, the party they were playing with wasn't even good.  

 

Here a video:

 

So next time you run into a **bleep** like this, try and ruin their day too.   Smiley Very Happy

 

Also, does this work with shiv kills in TLOU?

Pretty much, I guess. Stealth kill animations are a fixed animation where the victim character will ragdoll, regardless of health.

I mean, you can kill spongers this way, so you can kill hackers this way too.

nice, good thing I always make stealthkills, but thanks for letting us know! I haven't played in a while though, so I had a question: how serious is this hacking problem? do you bump into hackers often? I can remember there was a thread about some pathetic hacker a while ago, but I thought he was the only loser that knew how to do that infinate health and ammo hack, but apparently the problem is bigger than I thought, how big?

I've never ran into it in a public game but I've seen about 3 videos of different people doing it. So it's not too bad. Or I'm just really, really lucky.

@Matthijs It's rare to run into it, I believe the guy has shared the hack with some of his friends, so not many people are using it. This was the first time I've witnessed it first hand, but I have four friends who have come across it too. Lag switching is out of hand though, running into it on a weekly basis.

The player in the video was also trash talking on mic while playing, I don't usually send hate mail, but I couldn't resist that time. Smiley Very Happy

I don't run into a ton of lag switching either. Here and there but nothing that is really problematic for me. Once again, might just be luck.

Lol nice work, I don't know if this is on the verge of becoming common though, last week I ran into someone in a FFA match with an endless sas12 and grenades it wasn't so obvious until I watched the cinema back. I sent the video to player report but who knows if they even watch them any more.

If stealth works pull downs and kick offs probably work as well since they are also 1-hit-kill tricks that don't involve weapons.

 

Or DDOS them that works as well Smiley Tongue
