Okay cheaters, Rockstar would like to have a word with you.
Some players have complained about cheating in the Max Payne 3 multiplayer experience, and the developer has responded . Essentially, those utilizing "nefarious methods" to gain the edge are going to be in big trouble…and they deserve it.
The official statement reads as follows:
"Anyone found to have used hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, or to circumvent the leaderboards will be quarantined from all other players into a 'Cheaters Pool', where they'll only be able to compete in multiplayer matches with other confirmed miscreants. In the event we decide to absolve any of these cheaters for their past transgressions they may re-enter play with the general public, however a second offense will result in their indefinite banishment. In either case, we will be removing invalid leaderboard entries to ensure that the players at the top of the charts have earned their spots fairly."
Gotta love that part about a second offense meaning immediate and permanent banishment. If you come into contact with any MP3 cheaters, follow the instructions through the link above, and make sure you provide Rockstar with the platform, the offender's Gamertag/ID, a description of what happened and if you can, concrete evidence of the transgression by way of video or screen capture.
