Halo Infinite’s console players are calling for crossplay to be disabled, with a number of players reporting that cheaters are becoming increasingly common in the game’s multiplayer modes.

Over on the halo subreddit, some players have commented on the current state of cheating in Halo Infinite’s multiplayer mode, which seems to have quickly become a problem since its release on November 15th. While the game is currently still running as a beta, some fans have already become concerned about the state of hacking and ask 343 to do more about it.

A plethora of videos similar to the one posted above has been shared on social media by fans apparently showing players using common FPS hacks like aimbots and wall hacks to get an edge over others in their games.

Reddit users Dull Caterpillar3153 notes that cheat vendors are currently listing everything from infinite ammo modifiers to the ability to unlock paid cosmetics. Some report that hackers are even Block repetitions in theater mode to prevent video-based fraud reports – an even bigger problem as Halo Infinite does not include Killcam reruns, which is often used as evidence in other titles.

Lots of those on Reddit asked 343 to include a cross-play switch that would give players more freedom to interact, and similar views were shared by the Infinite community on Twitter. Currently, the game defaults to putting players on PC and console in the same pool – since cheats are easier to enable on PC, many players on Xbox consoles prefer an easy way to disable this crossover.

While disabling crossplay console players might provide some relief when cheating in-game, it certainly won’t fix the problem entirely. With that in mind, some players have targeted other limitations that are currently present in Infinite, such as the lack of a report button during a game. “It sucks that there is no report button in the game,” said one user Reddit.

While others have pointed out that gamers using the Xbox app can report those cheating through their gamertag, it doesn’t necessarily help the gamers accessing the game through Steam and should be streamlined anyway.

Cheating is a problem that has plagued a number of free-to-play shooters lately. Perhaps worst hit was Activision’s free battle royale Call of Duty Warzone. The game had prominent hacking issues for long periods of 2021.

While Halo Infinite certainly hasn’t reached a level of notoriety on cheaters like Warzone’s, both 343 and Microsoft are hoping to get things under control sooner rather than later.
