More and more, Battlefield 3 players are beginning to notice an increasing number of cheaters on the leaderboards.
If you were to take a look right now, you’d notice that all top spots on each platform are taken by players with score per minutes between 15k and 20k. Does this seem likely to you? Fortunately, DICE has stated that they are “continuing to crack down on cheaters” and also mentioned that they will be “stepping up [their] punishment of cheaters.” What exactly this entails, we are still unsure, but stay tuned to MP1st for more details as they become available. For now, DICE stresses that to report cheaters, use these methods explained in the Battlelog (below), rather than naming names on the various social network services.

We’d like to hear from you in the comments below. Is DICE doing enough to stop cheaters?
