'Battlefield 2042' Will Permanently Ban Cheaters With No Warnings Or Suspensions

Battlefield 2042 is a few days away from its long-awaited open beta, and just over a month away from its November 19 release. Ahead of this, developer DICE has shared a frank blog post explaining that cheaters, griefers, and general assholes will not be tolerated in the game and will be dealt with swiftly.

DICE outlined its approach to toxicity and cheating in Battlefield 2042, and also laid out its extensive anti-cheat measures and player behaviour policies - as well as how you can report bad behaviour if/when you spot it.

Take a look at Battlefield 2042 in action below!

Crucially, you'll be able to report players for the following behaviours: Abusive chat via text or voice, cheating or exploiting the game, sabotage, offensive player names, or harassment.

"Ensuring Fair Play for anyone that steps onto the Battlefield is something we take seriously at DICE," the developer wrote. "In short, that means we don't tolerate cheating, and we have teams dedicated to preventing, identifying, and sanctioning cheaters."

DICE confirmed it will continue to use Easy-Anti Cheat (EAC), an anti-cheat tool with a proven track record of identifying and dealing with cheaters in other EA games such as Apex Legends and Star Wars: Squadrons.

Once a cheater has been detected and banned, DICE said that they'll be banned from the game across all platforms.

"When a cheater is sanctioned it will cause them to be instantly disconnected mid-match and permanently banned across all platforms," DICE explained. "As before, we still have the ability to apply IP and hardware bans if necessary. To keep our community a fair place, we have a no tolerance rule in place. There are no warnings and no suspensions when it comes to cheating. If you don't play by the rules, you're out."

We'll find out in November just how successful these tough new measures are, but here's hoping Battlefield 2042 can be a relatively cheater-free zone.
