Activision have been taking action against a new machine learning cheat that has surfaced online this week.
A new cheat has suddenly surfaced online which could cause major issues for competitive play on consoles.
The Anti-Cheat Police Department Twitter account shone some light on the cheat earlier this week, they claims that the cheat is capable of learning real-time gameplay footage before sending inputs to gamers controllers.
The Tweet read “Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the next generation of cheating now available on console, and has been for a while but lately its been becoming more popular and more of a trend, consoles are no longer a safe space to play your games legit anymore.”
In another post they went on to say “The cheat uses machine learning and sends input to your controller whenever it sees a valid target, this is aim assist but more amplified without you even needing to do anything all you have to do is aim in the general area and the machine will do the work for you.”
They followed up by saying “is this detectable? yes, but it will be a pain for the developers to detect this it will certainly not be an easy job to detect these types of cheats, this already exists on PC but now is available in console.”
The cheat however would need a PC and capture card to be able to use it successfully, this will allow for the capture card to send the players gameplay straight to the PC in realtime.
The cheat was demonstrated in a video uploaded to Youtube which has since been removed although the cheat’s Discord has remained active with the cheats still able to be purchased.
So it seems as though Activision are taking action on this particular cheat so it may not be much longer until we see it removed completely.
