24, 837 players have been banned from H1Z1’s servers, under accusations of cheating.
John Smedley, president of Daybreak Game Company, confirmed the massive crackdown on Twitter, stating that the team focused on players using “ESP,” or extrasensory perception, hacks. This particular cheat allows the user to view other players’ health and location, which would normally remain unknown.
Smedley promised there would be more bans to come in the future, and that the team was keeping a very close eye on cheating in all shapes and sizes. In Smedley’s own words, “if you’re really psychic, you know your f’ed. Keep using it, Please.”
