Basically what the name asks, how many are there as compared to earlier? I played for a week a few months ago and enjoyed the game as much as i could but there were just too many hackers and i quit, really wanna jump back in if its gotten better.

No worse than any other game out there. At least GM's log in daily to look for hackers. But if you had issues months ago, then you will have issues now as PS2 has not really ever had a serious hacker issue.

I hear this all the time. I would guess most of the time people are just getting out played and taking it personal. Does PS2 have hackers, aim botters, etc? I am sure they do, but I can count on one hand the number of cheaters I have personally seen, and I have been playing off and on since tech test.

So good luck.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

You will hardly find any hacker by now really.

Totally agree. 

Can not tell you how many times I had people scream at me calling me a hacker or cheater just because I killed them. 

 

Granted I've run in to some players that made some insanely lucky or skillful kills that made me arch an eyebrow in disbelief, but never seen anyone obviously exploiting.

For sure. I played quite a while a long time ago. Been killed a lot of odd ways, have killed in a lot of odd ways. Maybe two or three times I've seen someone hack. I find people use that excuse as a easy out. Just today some kid (Not calling a man a kid, it was a legit kid. Had a mic on...) started cussing my name up and down a street on Grand Theft Auto online accusing me of hacking. I was hovering above him in a helicopter. 

For anyone who has not yet played GTA5O, players show up on the mini-map as a white dot. Most players, when seeing a white dot, like to try and  get a kill when they see it. Might get a good chunk of change or a new weapon off them. I just like to hover above them to annoy them. It's oddly entertaining.

LOL kinda interesting that the account that had posted that aimbot video has been banned.

Well duh, only idiots post videos of themselves using aimbots lol, i'm sure most aren't THAT stupid xD but there are always some people who think they are unbannable, anyways you guys are right, at least on the west server...i don't see anyone "nuking" everyone and getting 30+ kills in a few seconds anymore, also haven't run into any people i'd suspect of aimbotting...yet

Edit: Oh you meant the youtube account, huh that is strange...didn't think youtube banned people for videos of aimbots, or maybe the owner was frightened and decided to take down his entire account.

Much much MUCH better than it was at the start of the year. I won't say it never happens, but they've tipped past the point where false accusations well outnumber actual cases.

Hackers are few and far between nowadays. I think that many of them probably just got bored although the PS2 team did do a great job at knocking down a lot of them.

I've seen more C-4 spawn room team-killers (just 1 in the last 2 weeks) than hackers now that I think about it. And they usually get dealt with pretty swiftly when half a platoon /reports them.

There was never much hacking to start off with...

 

The problem of Planetside 2 has always been the overwhelming power of armor and air vs infantry. People get killed soon as they spawned because their spawn was bombarded by tanks and planes, and explosive effects can easily go around corners or windows.

 

That has improved somewhat now so that why the complaint wasn't as rampant.

This is true. Cheaters are really uncommon. I guess their lazieness to get better at the game was the same laziness they made them quit after cheating and shortly after, getting caught was too much trouble to try again.

Only issue you will have now is the population imbalance and dealing with massive zergz.

Hackers are still rampant, and hacking has always been an issue in this game. I dunno what the previous posters are playing but it's not PS2. Wallhacks, no recoil hacks, aimbot, you name it there are hundreds of players using multiple hacks in PS2.

Don't believe me, just google it. For example, there are currently 105 people viewing the planetside 2 hacks forums on Unknowncheats. That's 1 website alone.

Well the PS2 bot now allows full character controls so all you have to do is move character around and it'll do the shooting for you so it makes sense that you wouldn't notice the hackers anymore, they've gotten good with their software.

Its probably safe now,  most games that are hacked bad are either really popular or new and PS2 is neither.  plus im sure all the scum bag cheaters are getting geared up for battlefield 4 and the new CoD coming out soon.

I wouldn't think so. BF4 is more of a game to experience and enjoy same with CoD.

 

PS2 (since it's F2P) is often considered a throw away game where you come for a bit of pvp and then head out.  No real decent progression of any sort in that game. So, the best one could do is...well just hope to get a few kills in before you logout.

Been playing since aprox. January and have not seen cases of hackers or cheaters. Although 2 weeks ago I saw something weird. I was in a Bio Lab and I could have swarn I saw shots coming in from the outside through the galss wall at 20 feet above floor.

 

Other then that, I do not recall seeing anything weird other then lucky shots.
