Cheating on video games is a bit of fun, refreshing the experience of play in the eyes of many.
After all, single-player games of old used to reward cheat codes on completion of the game, such as in PS2’s The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, for example. PC Mag fittingly described cheat codes as “a sacred right to break a game completely”, so with that notion in mind, the whole culture around cheating on video games is worth exploring further.
Cheating on online games is a riskier ordeal than in the single-player realm, as your actions will affect other’s experiences. There are things to keep in mind here if you are going to cheat, and we explore what they are down below.
Use the Right Services
As with all things that help you get ahead in life (and in games), the services you use make a big difference between success and failure.
For your best shot at cheating elusively, check out this website from IWantCheats. They provide aim bots for games like Apex Legends that lock onto your enemies and annihilate them before they even become aware of your presence. They can even remove things like weapon sway and recoil too. Better yet, all their hacks get round game’s anti-cheat systems without any problems, which means you are never at risk of being discovered and banned.
If you are going to do something, do it properly. Services such as these will ensure that your exploits never come to light, delivering a slick service without any bumps in the road. See through objects, have enemies and allies glow in distinct colors, and have complete dominance over any match at all times quietly and sophisticatedly.
Online games can be chaotic, often riddled with glitches at release or after a live service update.
Some YouTube channels might feature map exploits, game-breaking techniques, and other little quirks for you to exploit in the game, so utilizing those will enhance your play through less honorable means. The more you research, the more you will become aware of the weak points in each online arena.
Because all this information is widely available, these cheats are often common knowledge among the player base, which means numerous almost everyone openly engage with them. Other players are likely to be more lenient and let these exploits go too, seen as a bit of one-off fun before the glitches are patched out. The developers are mostly at fault in these circumstances, so you can exploit these little workarounds until they are removed, and no in-game punishments or consequences should feasibly come your way.
Do Not Gloat
Cheaters on online games have been bestowed with powers untold, and to gloat about that fact will only tempt karma and fate.
It is tempting to trash talk to a degree, especially if your opponents kicked it all off. Even online chess players engage in some gentle ribbing online, and for many people, the banter is part of the fun. However, if you get overly cocky during all your cheating escapades, you are only leaving yourself open to discovery and further ridicule.
It is best to simply remain shtum around your cheating, and around trash talking in general while you are cheating. That way, you will appear to have some dignity about you, all while you are mercilessly gaining the upper hand on your opponents. Respecting your fellow players vocally will also ease suspicions that you could be a cheater, so kill them with kindness first and your cheats second.
Sticking with the theme of blending in, sometimes feigning a few losses is a good way to go in your cheating escapade.
The trick is to blend in with the other players in your match not only through your behavior, but also through your gameplay. If you have pasted an opponent three times in a row, letting them destroy you on the fourth encounter might just help them be satisfied instead of suspicious.
The boom in video game interest is here to stay according to many analysts, which means you will potentially be matched up with more players than ever before in your online gaming. Even bored non-gamers have taken up controllers, mice, and keyboards during all the lockdown restrictions, and all will be equipped with their own finely tuned perceptions over what is fair and what is not. Therefore, it is incredibly important to die a few times in your games to sell your ‘average player’ deception.
Conversely, if you are flying around the map, launching yourself through walls, and soaking up enough bullets to down your entire team, then you will become the star of recorded footage and report filings. The level to which you want to take things is up to you, but it is safest to cheat via a few subtler perks (i.e. enhanced radar, seeing through walls) than essentially becoming the love child of Keanu Reeves and Liam Neeson.
