It seems like some people have never heard the saying “a cheater never wins” and the over the previous weekend 4,621 people wish they had, for they have been banned from Rust.
Being completely fed-up with cheaters, FacePunch Studios tested out a new anti-cheating system entitled CheatPunch on the PC game and while it’s still in the testing phase, its safe to say it was so successful that Developer Garry Newman couldn’t help but express his delight,
If you get kicked from the official servers with the message that you’ve been banned then you have been caught. You’re a naughty boy. You know what you have done. You won’t get unbanned. We know it was your 9 year old cousin. We know your computer got hijacked. We know that the CIA is getting you banned from all your games on Steam so you will join them in the hunt for aliens.
Not only will cheaters be banned but they will also be public shamed. Newman went onto explain that the developers are “aiming to get a site set up for people that have been banned so they can go and see proof that they’ve been caught.”
While Newman knows this doesn’t put an end to cheating, he does have faith in the system and is looking forward to it being officially up and running.
