Modded weapon worked in MP


Recommended Posts

I made a couple minor changes to my SCAR H just for fun. I added 5rds to the magazine and 3 round burst to the gun.

I was suprised to find out that the changes I made to the gun took affect, even during multiplayer.

This was completely unintentional and did not mean to "cheat", but this could potentially be seriously misused. I could have, for instance, given my self magazines filled with 99 rds and no recoil.

I could also potentially change the bullets that the M8 shoots from 5.56mm to 12.7mm.

Hopefully this will be addressed in a patch in the future, or maybe correct me if I am out of line here...

Security through obscurity is never a good thing.

Sorry you feel that a public revelation of this would 'ruin the game' for you. Some seem to feel that it's better that the game be ruined by those who exploit flaws privately, than to have those flaws pointed out publically, so others can be aware and take appropriate measures.

Whatever dude. I didn't post a do-it-yourself guide to cheating. If nothing was said, would it be better? People would eventually figure it out.

At least this way, GRIN definitively knows that it has to be fixed.

But to the mods, by all means, delete this thread if you feel it comprimises the game. I intended this in no way to encourage cheaters, only to raise awareness.

were you running a server or were you a client? If server did everyone have the changes our just you?

just me...client side.

Yeah, so I guess if you see somebody doing wierd things with their guns like shooting through concrete walls on full auto with an M8, they're probably cheating.

Lol thanks for the insight :rofl:

I had wondered if that would work, but I figured it would, and didnt want to earn a reputation as a cheater. In some ways thats nice to know, but doesnt that also mean that if I go modding my guns then play mp, I am always going to be 'cheating'?

I guess I am more concerned about the 'unintentional cheating' I would be doing by modding than I am about the fact that people can do it intentionally, just because the anticheat should help do away with the intentional cheaters, either taking us with them, or.... something, now I'm rambling.

Um, this game, via the MP, is not being ruined by cheats. Grin bears to blame for destroying the MP side. I too agree that SP looks great and is fine, but the MP, wow.

talk about lipstick on pig!!!

This is a modding forum. The "Bash GRIN with every post regardless of relevance" forum is that way --->

100% with you on this point, keeping things in the shade does nothing to weed out the potential cheats.... this way we all know what needs to be addressed.... and like "scuba" says.... It will be discovered sooner or later by others.... The scripting of this game is not rocket science. :thumbsup:

to those afraid of cheating by accident, you could install GRAW twice,

1 for modding 2nd for gaming. no harm done

this is a war game right ?? (listening to drowning pool..love and war)

good job posting this scubbaman, now everyone knows that this is possible, and grin does too, they will fix this for MP

the more is known, the more one learns,
