The multiplayer mode of Halo Infinite has been running for exactly two weeks, and despite the great reviews and the growing number of players online, the first problems started to crop up as the days went by. In addition to the difficulties for the level up of the Battle Pass, users have recently started to report an increasing number of cheaters, with frequent cases of aimbots and wallhacks. The lack of a specific setting to report incorrect players and the impossibility to deactivate the cross-play led the community to ask for immediate intervention by the guys of 343 Industries.
Below, you can look at some testimonials, but there are thousands of cases, as evidenced by posts and comments on Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook. Halo infinite, unfortunately, does not allow you to report cheaters on the fly but instead relies on a reporting system based on the sending of tickets on Halo Support. This system is not exactly quick and functional. Pending the introduction of a rapid reporting system, many users have begun to ask for the temporary removal of cross-play, or at least the addition of a setting that allows you to disable the functionality at will.
343 Industries has not responded to fan requests at the moment. Still, disabling cross-play will not completely solve the problem, so direct intervention by the developers will still be required to limit cheat cases. Activision recently announced the introduction of Ricochet, a new anti-cheat system to protect Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone servers, and who knows that 343 Industries and Microsoft may not think of a similar strategy.
