LIPSTICK ON A PIGS ASS STILL MAKES IT JUST A PIGS ASS!

Lets pretend k2 and their pet gamersfirst has a positive track record against hacking/aimbots in their other games AND apb...

and then lets come back to the real world.

A thousand times this. Everything he said is true. There isn't a hacker issue - but G1 never got around to much of that promised content sadly.

I think people think hacking is out of control because the game is very cheap :x

@(Unverified) ived played the game, a TON unfortunately until i just threw my hands up in the air and gave up on it. i bought and played RTW's version back then, played G1s version right when it came out. i quit the game as a high gold threat level player. 99% of the playerbase DOES INFACT hack. if you are too dumb to realize this, then i feel sorry for you. they are not only hackers, they are BLATANT hackers. people on that game do not care at all if you catch them hacking.

So please, actually play the game and open your freaking eyes before you come on here and defend the atrocity of a game that is APB. then maybe youll realize people quitting APB left and right isnt because of the "lack of content" its because people are realizing, "hey everyones hacking, this is just stupid" and uninstalling the game.

if u want to really laugh, install the wallhack that everyone uses and just stare at peoples characters and see that 99.9% of them are staring right back at you through those walls. hacker infested game is fun.

by the way, awful APB players usually are the ones that think most of the people arent hackers, they are just REALLY good players. lmao.

@R3nZiO I see the complaint all the time. APB isn't some uber challenging game. It's point and shoot with no body part targeting. It's a basic game. So obviously, something is up with the system.

@Tizmah. This is where you are wrong. This is not CoD and is not a simple point, aim and click game. There is recoil, cone of fire, accuracy and optimum range to consider. It is for this reason that people think everyone else is hacking because they get killed and cannot seem to kill opponents or win missions but what is actually happening is people are expecting to sprint while firing an NTEC (aka AK47) at people 100m away and are moaning when they do not kill them. People need to realise that whilst there are hackers in the game, the people that are winning are doing so because they have mastered the dynamics of the game and have played through the learning curve rather than getting all angry and coming on the internet to complain that the person who just beat them was hacking. I am an average player, nowhere near good and do not purchase weapons in the cash shop and only use the weapons I earn in the game but I have played since RTW beta so I know the game inside out and I still beat others just because I know the limitations and advantages of certain weapons and circumstances.

APB is a diamond in the rough... covered in ofal buried under a pile of camel dung, but a diamond none the less.

The character customization options SHOULD BE THE INDUSTRY STANDARD they are that deep. If you have even the slightest bit of skill with graphics you can create some amazing stuff. To have the ability to customize you characters skin, clothes, cars and spray (your symbol you can spray in spots around the city) is without equal.

The combats fun (in groups of friends, less so if you solo) but the game does auto group you for missions and backup. The car chases are fun (if you have a good connection and awesome video card, otherwise you car moves like a oil tanker on dry land).

That being said, the game does have a serious aimbot/wall hack problem. Sure, players that are cheating are getting caught and banned, but in a free game with no other form of authentication needed than an valid e-mail, those banned players are quickly back and even more outright in their hacking.

My last straw was when I was obviously aimbotted and when I accused my opponent he whispered me the link to the livestream of him hacking and tried to sell me his hacks. Two weeks after multiple players reporting this D-bag, he was still playing and opening hacking.

@Quarlo

Yup, there is a lot of aimbotting and hacking in the game. It was the last straw that made myself and my friends quit the game for good.

Bullets flying through the wall? Yup, happens.

Sniper getting perfect shots every single time? Sniper shooting three, four perfect shots every single second without missing? Get this: The sniper doesn't spend time looking for a shot. He just turns and shoot as if HE ALREADY KNOWS THE TARGET IS THERE.

That happens all the time in the game.

Character with a starter rifle shooting perfect shots from long range? Yes, happens in the game.

Let's not forget the weapons that are sold in the store. This game is very much a pay to win game. If you don't spend money on the permanent weapons, you won't get far in the game. The temporary weapons are nice and all but to keep affording them you have to continually do missions to get in-game cash.

Or... you can spend extra money for a 30-day Premium membership where you can get extra EXP and in-game money bonus to missions you do.

This game is flawed in every respect. It's fun the first time but gets old fast after a while. And, don't expect to win solo missions against a Premium or higher ranked member unless you too have a cash shop weapon or get very damn lucky.

Also, the game lacks new areas and the two districts in the game can be repetitive after a while.

@octoberasian. lol there is no such hack that makes bullets fly through walls, and it is extremely easy for a sniper to hit its target every time. Your assumption that these circumstances are as a result of hacking renders your other comments irrelevant as you appear to be just another player who hasn't taken the time to learn the game and assumes cheat every time you lose.

True, the game has issues and is not perfect. Occasional instances of hacking, lack of content, matchmaking is still not right and whoever designed Fight Club needs a serious talking to but if people have the patience to learn the game, its not as bad as everyone makes out.
