Bethesda responds to Fallout 76’s PC hacking
As of late, Bethesda issued a response on IGN about the recent rumors with Fallout 76. Apparently, a thread on Reddit claimed that Fallout 76’s PC port has “no server checks to verify models or file integrity”. Additionally, players would be able to edit files without the game checking for errors. Not to mention, hackers could use Wireshark to track down players and kick them out of the game.
Also, other hacking methods could have players walk through walls and manipulate the server to obeying them falling under the client disguise. However, the only evidence to back this up is a post made on NexuxMods.
Therefore, Bethesda has responded to the issues with the following message:
“The community has however called to attention several issues that our teams are already actively tracking and planning to roll out fixes for,” Bethesda’s statement to IGN reads. “Our goal is always to deliver a great experience for all our players. Cheating or hacking will not be tolerated.”
Honestly, we’ll have to see how this will work when the game comes out on November 14th, Besides, developers these days tend to tolerate with hackers in clever ways if they have the nerve to do things like that.
