On BF3 Cheating

There's an interesting article on Kotaku on cheating in multiplayer games, focusing on malfeasance in Battlefield 3, DICE's military shooter sequel. Well, malfeasance is our term, the article takes an almost sympathetic tone, characterizing the cheaters it specifically portrays as regular players, and relating their complex rationalizations of how they are somehow more justified than garden-variety cheaters. The article also takes a surprisingly informative approach to details on this, choosing to provide links to cheat providers, prices of various exploits, and even de facto reviews of their effectiveness.

I've never seen cheating, though it may be I'm just not attentive enough (and I haven't been playing a lot of BF3). I noticed it all the time in COD:MW2; at least one aimbot and/or wall hack every time played.

From what I read the problem with BF3 cheating is that it's not on your face, it's actually quite subtle. It's rare for cheaters to have a 300K-0D sessions but rather a 40K-5D kind of sessions. Verno here read the same article in reddit I did about that self-confessed cheater and what he saw when he used the cheat.

I've actually never seen a cheater either, except on non-punkbuster servers, where my whole team was killed in a loop at our spawn for 10 minutes. I've seen a bunch of people with 50-0 and stuff like that, and it does sound almost impossible, but I used to be pretty good at Farcry and I could manage things like that. Everyone called me a cheater. I have yet to actually see a clear cheat in BF3 tho.
