Crazy Ways People Are Cheating In Video Games

Crazy Ways People Are Cheating In Video Games


Since the moment the human race started playing
games, we’ve had cheaters, and video games
are no different.
Whether it’s using simple life-hacks, or actual,
literal hacks, gamers have found all sorts
of innovative ways to bend the rules.
Here’s a look at some super creative ways
people have cheated in video games.
The red dot
The simplest way to cheat in modern first-person
shooting games is by actually adding a dot
to your TV to assist with hip-fire or quick-scoping.
It sounds too easy to be true, but something
as simple as sticking a red light to your
screen, can help you know where to aim your
gun without actually aiming.
If you want to become a master at hip-firing,
this trick might be exactly what you need.
Breaking the world
Dark Souls 3 has broken a lot of spirits,
so it’s only fitting that someone broke the
game in return.
A speedrunner going by the name Distortion2
discovered this glitch, using it to beat the
entire game in only 36 minutes and 43 seconds.
The game-breaking exploit involved the player
casting the Tears of Denial spell to survive
dying, bringing them back to 1 HP.
This was done while traveling through a gap
in the world’s geometry, so the player essentially
fell through the world.
The bug has since been patched, so if you’re
looking to bypass a month’s worth of agony,
you’ll have to figure out your own clever
way to do it.
Fearing the Reaper
The Blue Öyster Cult told you not to fear
the Reaper, but as this little cheat in Overwatch
proves, a little fear can’t hurt — especially
if the Reaper’s hidden in the walls of the
Temple of Anubis and can kill you unseen.
This masked assassin has a nifty little move
that allows him to teleport from place to
place, and in the Temple of Anubis map, there
are spots he could use to teleport past walls
or ceilings, dropping him into a spot at the
last capture point.
A Reaper player could remain hidden behind
the walls, able to attack everything in sight
while staying completely protected.
The Overwatch overlords at Blizzard eventually
fixed this exploit, but it’s just a matter
of time until someone figures out another
way to game the system.
Sword-flying
The art of sword-flying is a Halo 2 technique
that sends players hurtling through the air
thanks to some fancy trigger-work and weapon-switching.
Essentially, when you switch weapons while
lunging with a sword, the game will continue
the lunge motion no matter how far away you
were to begin with.
You’ll fly great distances and can position
yourself up high, taking potshots from your
very own sniper’s nest.
Buckethead
Do you like stealing from NPCs in Skyrim without
getting caught?
Then there’s one word you need to know: buckets.
One bizarre trick in The Elder Scrolls 5:
Skyrim involves placing a bucket or kettle
or basket on an NPC’s head.
Not only does it look ridiculous, it also
prevents them from seeing you stealing all
their stuff.
This cheat is hilariously easy to pull off,
turning even the most bumbling adventurer
into a master thief.
The Rainbow Road
Remember the Rainbow Road track in Mario Kart
64?
Remember how annoyed you’d get when your buddies
beat you?
They probably did it using this little shortcut,
which involves jumping off the side just before
that large drop.
If your aim is on target, you land smack-dab
in the middle of the track way up ahead, having
bypassed about a third of the course.
The same sort of trick was possible on the
Wario’s Stadium course, where you could use
one of the jumps to vault over the barrier
and onto another segment of the track, landing
close to the finish line.
It was a dirty move…but it was also pretty
awesome.

  1. Just about every COD has had some of the worst cheaters and glitches. Not to mention all the aim bots and lag switchers…

  2. While messing around with files for minecraft PE to change the gamemode before they made it something you could do easily, I somehow broke my main world I used. Portions of the map rendered different terrain for other players joining my world from what my screen showed. None of the broken areas affected me as the host, but the way they behaved for players varied. When the players walked into areas where there were no blocks on their screen, but there were on mine, the game let them go there, but they took suffocation damage, and could not understand why they were dying. Meanwhile I would appear to be flying while walking on blocks they could not see. On the other hand, I could enter areas where there were no blocks on my screen but there were for other players. I remember my friend trying to kill me, and then from his perspective I just phased into the side of a cliff. From there I shot him with arrows until he died. I hid my valuables in a portion of the map other players could not enter without dying of ghost damage, so only I could ever get them. At another point my friend tried to mine some iron and it dropped a block of bedrock. He traded it to me in exchange for peace and I used a duplication glitch to get stacks of bedrock, and trapped people in eternal prisons. Oh yeah, minecraft PE used to have a huge duplication glitch. All you had to do was have two people take an item from a chest at the same time and they would each get one. Once you had a stack of items you could duplicate the entire stack at a time. We abused the hell out of that one.

  3. How does putting a dot on your fucking screen help? That's exactly where the in game cursor will be… unless you're blind, that shit helps nobody.

  4. Wow, I remember that Halo 'glitch'. Was annoying and awesome at the same time. ANDDD that Mario Kart cheat, I only discovered it, I think by accident towards the end of my time playing it, after like 1000 hours smh. And it wasnt easy to pull off

  5. Best cheat i found out myself by accident was when i was little and played Death Track. When buying/selling weapons, you would scroll the shop, but the selected item would scroll with the selection, making it possible to be offscreen. By pressing the "sell" button, even you didnt have the weapon, it would give you the sell money. Basically making it possible to have all guns and upgrades the first time you entered the shop. Good times 😀

  6. The question is should cheating be allowed in video games? And if so does it really take the fun out of it? Yes and no depending on what game you're playing. Now not too long ago I started my own channel I got a couple gameplay videos on there, some are PlayStation 4 games others are retro games from Nintendo and Super Nintendo. I've beaten all those games at one time or another And many more. I never use a cheat device, I never use the game genie to beat the games but after I beat it I went and got a Game Genie and I played them and to me I felt like they were a lot more fun playing it that way I mean it was fun beating it without one but it was just more enjoyable in my opinion. Also I felt that it was cheaper because if you have played any of the games back in the day or any of these recent games, you will see how frustrating it is to beat and I'm pretty sure that many people on YouTube have been known to break a controller or two just trying to get a game complete it. So getting the game genie was cheaper or getting any cheating device with cheaper because you would rather pay what $39.99 or maybe $49.99 toupee what $60 to $70 for controller multiple times? So in my opinion I think there is nothing wrong with cheating in video games when it's video games like that, when it's video games that you're playing by yourself. I however do think that it's wrong to cheat when you're playing online and you're trying to get on the leaderboard expressions for games like Call of Duty,Battlefield, Destiny or even OverWatch. When it comes to those games I may not be the best players but if I'm ranked 9,973 out of 10,000 people then I'm happy because I earned what I got. So yeah I believe that some games should have cheating and some shouldn't that's just my opinion.

  7. In Mario Kart, wario course, you could not only jump over at that point, but also to jump back and finish the lap. My record was 6 seconds.
