Bungie and Ubisoft are taking action against cheat maker Ring-1 by filing a lawsuit for destroying the online experience of these games.
This isn’t the first time a Rainbow Six Siege cheat maker got sued. See, multiplayer games have to encounter a cheater or hacker problem sooner or later. It’s just what happens when competitive games become slightly popular. Someone will try to become really good really fast, which doesn’t happen all that often. But, that’s where cheats come in.
Yet, devs of these games take these problems seriously. That’s why Bungie and Ubisoft teamed up to take down Ring-1. These guys had an interesting business model. For 25 euros a week, you got an aimbot, the option to see the health and distance of other players, a special “Long Knife” that lets you stab players from the other side of the map, the ability to change your weapon’s spread and recoil, and there’s also a hardware ID spoofer to prevent bans. That’s for Rainbow Six Siege.
Similarly, for 25 euros a week, a Destiny 2 player can get a PvP aimbot, infinite ammo, ESP, and a HWID spoofer. Other games like Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Rust, PUBG, and more had similar options.
However, Bungie and Ubisoft filed a lawsuit in the California state district on July 23rd to take down these cheat makers. They’re suing several users (Overpowered, Berserker, Krypto) believed to be behind Ring-1. The estimation of this damage may amount to millions of dollars. I think this is reason enough to not sell cheats.
