Halo Infinite players are calling on 343 Industries to allow them to disable crossplay after aimbots arrive in Multiplayer.
It’s been an exciting week for Halo fans, after the surprise launch of Infinite’s Multiplayer allowed everyone to play the game early. Despite the Campaign not launching until December 8, Halo Infinite features Free-to-Play Multiplayer that hits new highs for the franchise.
That is, until cheaters began to enter online lobbies. It seems that it didn’t take long for malicious users to bypass Infinite’s security and begin to cheat in matchmaking.
Now, fans want an option to disable crossplay between Halo Infinite’s console and PC versions.
Halo Infinite Needs Option to Disable Crossplay Between Xbox and PC
Fans are calling for an option to disable crossplay between Halo Infinite’s Xbox and PC versions.
The unfortunate nature of Free-to-Play games is that they often attract cheaters in large numbers. We’re still seeing this with Warzone, as players can simply make a new account easily whenever they get a ban.
And while 343 Industries prides itself on an excellent PC port for Halo Infinite, there’s one issue it perhaps didn’t account for.
It appears that malicious Halo players are already using aimbots in Infinite’s matchmaking, and console players aren’t happy.
It’s true that the vast majority of cheaters in Halo will be using PCs, yet Xbox players are unable to choose not to play with PC players.
In a popular new post on the XboxSeriesX subreddit, players call on 343 Industries to give console users the option to disable crossplay. And it’s already getting some traction from the game’s community.
It’d be unfortunate to see the brand-new title hindered by disabled crossplay. However, 343 Industries might have bigger issues to deal with in Halo Infinite for the time being.
On top of that, this new Halo Infinite Doubleshot exploit allows players to fire twice as fast, even without cheating!
But PC players have even more issues than just being grouped together with cheaters. It appears that some PC players are encountering input lad and aim assist issues.
