Bungie Lays Down The Law On 15,000 Halo Reach Cheaters
 
 

If you cheat, you will get caught. That's the message Bungie wants to send to anyone and everyone who plays Halo: Reach.

The developer has just pulled credits from thousands of players who "egregiously" exploited a glitch in the game that artificially inflated the number of credits they had.

"Specifically, we targeted an exploit that allowed players to complete a Challenge 20+ times via itentional [sic] network manipulation (i.e., disconnects)," wrote Bungie on its website.

The company did not specify exactly what the glitch was, but it shows a real crackdown from Bungie on people who manipulate the game in a way that makes it unfair to other players.

This comes just a couple months after Microsoft banned the Xbox Live accounts of people who illegitimately obtained a pre-release copy of the game.

Clearly, the guys behind the scenes at Halo Reach are making game legitimacy a real concern. So if you really want to gain an illegal advantage in a game, go do it on something that has no policing. Like Uno.
