Rockstar to Banish Max Payne 3 Cheaters to the “Cheaters Pool”

Tired of playing with cheaters in multiplayer games? Well, so are the guys over at Rockstar Games.

Their goal is to separate those who cheat from the legit users by placing them in a quarantined lobbies known as the “Cheaters Pool”, where they’ll be able to play only with other cheaters. Though it is possible to exit the cheater pool, a second offense will result in an “indefinite banishment”. As for those hacked leaderboard spots, Rockstar has said that they will be removed.

  • Platform (PC, PS3 or Xbox 360)
  • Cheater’s Gamertag / ID
  • Description of the violation
  • If possible, please include concrete evidence, such as a video or a screenshot
