Ban Hammer Coming for Red Dead Redemption Cheaters Next Week

August 20, 2010 -

Players fond of using hacked save games to gain benefits in multiplayer probably feel like cattle rustlers in the sights of Matt Dillon from Gun Smoke today. Rockstar is getting ready to ban as many accounts as it has to to clean up this “Wild West” of a multiplayer community, but it wants to give players a chance to repent by deleting those hacked save games.

There are other negatives to getting banned besides not being able to play the game online; banned accounts will also be removed from leaderboards, but those smart enough to erase those "bad save files" will still get to keep their achievements and trophies, pre-order items and cheats earned through the "Social Club" after creating a new save game and logging in.

"Next week, starting on Tuesday, August 24th – we will be swiftly and indefinitely banishing from the world of 'Red Dead Redemption' multiplayer all Gamertags and PSN IDs we’ve detected with hacked game saves," a company representative wrote on the Rockstar Games blog. "Such cheating is a clear violation of our code of conduct, and punishable at our sole discretion."

The message is pretty clear: clean your act up or be prepared to face the consequences, I guess.

oh good, cheaters have no place in multiplayer game.

Let´s hope that they don´t start to ban players who don´t use cheats by accident.

I've seen some of these cheats and most of them can't be used by accident. Just to be clear, the ban hammer won't swing just from the entered in cheats in single player.

Kind of glad that they will clear off all the 0 second scores on Social Club though.

The cheaters have it coming to them.

Matthew WilsonI know its not directly related to games, but are you going to tak about the fcc raising the definition of broadband to 25/3?01/31/2015 - 8:33pm
Wonderkarpwell we had to christen it some way01/31/2015 - 7:13pm
Andrew EisenThank goodness the Shout box now goes back 100 shouts, eh folks?01/31/2015 - 7:10pm
Wonderkarpyouve said youre stuff. I gave you a point on one thing.01/31/2015 - 7:04pm
Andrew EisenNo, they're facts. Not beliefs. Not opinions. Facts. Do I need to list them all for you again? I'm happy to oblige.01/31/2015 - 7:02pm
Andrew EisenAnd I have seen no evidence (and would find it very hard to believe) that her fans and funders, even the most radical, would be the ones perpetuating that nonsense.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Wonderkarpabout as right as Glenn Beck is about the gays, man. Its all your beliefs and opinions.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenI didn't say you did. And this talking head is still right about everything he's said so far.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
Andrew EisenAlso, considering the number of non profits that merchandise, I'm going to guess you're wrong on that one too but I don't really know as it's not my area of expertise.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
WonderkarpYou can keep saying that all you want. Its just a talking head, man. there's all the proof in the pudding. I never said she was trying to take away games, or get rid of male protagonists, or any of the BS thats perpetraited by her more radicalfans/funders01/31/2015 - 6:56pm
Andrew EisenNo, as I've spelled out throughout this discussion, you're wrong.01/31/2015 - 6:53pm
Wonderkarpok. that one I am wrong. I'll give you that one. That was one I didnt research properly. BUT I'm right on the others.01/31/2015 - 6:53pm
Andrew EisenFact: It makes no difference whether she recorded the footage or not. Fact: yes she does have a Section 107 'fair use' disclaimer at the end of every video and in the video description.01/31/2015 - 6:47pm
Wonderkarpsaying otherwise. I've presented a video with cited sources combined with opinion. Youre presenting just your opinion. 01/31/2015 - 6:43pm
Wonderkarpits still important information brought up on the original video. and by not saying anything, the casual observer thinks its her footage. there's no "section 107 Fair use" disclaimer. Its as if she's showing star wars and saying "look what I made" without01/31/2015 - 6:43pm
Andrew EisenIf that's true, maybe she's willing to lose her tax exempt status by merchandising. So? Also not a problem with her Kickstarter. And no, I don't have to be a rep of FemFreq to point out how nonsensical, irrelevant and untrue all this nonsense is.01/31/2015 - 6:43pm
Andrew EisenShe doesn't say it's not her footage and she never said she'd record all her own footage. So this isn't a problem. I doubt she's said anything like "no women or non white people are critics of mine." Regardless, nothing to do with her Kickstarter.01/31/2015 - 6:41pm
Wonderkarpvalet about parking info01/31/2015 - 6:41pm
Wonderkarpyour glenn beck to her republican party. you can refut all you want, but its not going to matter until femfreq comes out and disputes these claims because you are not a member of fem freq. you are a second party. I dont ask the man standing next to the01/31/2015 - 6:39pm
