We are all sick of hackers in Counter-Strike: Global Offensives but hackers have recently been attacked with hack that works against them when they try to use it. Team killing.
The video which can be found further down on this page shows some great insight into the location of the people who downloaded the fake cheat. It shows that Poland, Germany and Brazil are the highest offenders each with over one hundred downloads. ScriptKid does mention that he used Adsense which is an ad network by Google to get traffic but doesn’t specify which regions he targeted.
The fake hack did the following:
- Drops grenades under players when they try to throw them and disables the movement keys. This includes both HE and incendiary grenades.
- Fires weapons when a team mate is in front of the player’s crosshair.
- Turns the player sensitivity to 100 and forcing them to jump for a set amount of time.
- Push the crosshair off the enemy team when aiming at them.
- Throws the players weapons away when they try to aim at an enemy.
ScriptKid has not only done this for CS:GO though, he has also targeted hackers who play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) by making them jump out of moving vehicles when they are moving above a certain speed. Downing or killing the player in the act, removing them from the game.
This is not the first time someone has done something similar to mess with people who download public hacks of the internet to ruin the game for others. AndroidL from Reddit created a hack that would get players banned on purpose after a certain amount of time by running code it knew Valve Anti-Cheat (also known as VAC) would detect and act upon right away. They state that they have banned over 3,000 accounts with his fake cheat.
Now you should know not to trust anything you download online, especially cheats for an online game as they could be working against you in an attempt to get you banned. So while you have your account safe why not check out the top CS:GO trading websites where you can trade your skins for others without the hassle of paying the 15% Steam fee and do it instantly.
