Gitting gud in Battlefield 2042 may not actually matter.

As discovered by competitive gaming outlet Charlie Intel, cheaters have already begun offering hacks for EA and DICE’s heavily anticipated multiplayer-only shooter.

A website called iwantcheats has published an advertisement for a Battlefield 2042 hack months before the game’s release on October 22, 2021. It comprises Aimbot, ESP, Cheat Radar, and other benefits for players who want to ruin the experience for everyone else.

Aimbot will allow users to easily hit targets even when moving, while ESP offers insight on other players ranging from their names (making it easier to harass people, apparently) to how far away they are on a map. Cheat Radar is also available as a means of locating others much more effectively.

The people behind the Battlefield 2042 hack claim that it can’t be detected, either.

“Safety and undetectability are top priorities for IWantCheats,” the cheaters wrote. “Our Battlefield 2042 Hack is confirmed to be undetected, as we always update the second a new patch comes out from the developer.”

This could be a major problem, especially when one considers that iWantCheats has over 1.2 million registered users. The website claims that none of its users have ever been caught and/or banned in any Battlefield game “for years.”

Further, they state on the website that game developers don’t have access to the “advanced features like safety shields or proxy IPs” to be able to ban players and catch them. The website also claims that they update their hacks “the second a new patch comes out from the developer.”
