Okay so they’re not exactly lining cheaters up to be shot at Rockstar Games but they are doing something about the rampant horde of cheaters found in the game.
“Anyone found to have used hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits to gain an unfair advantage in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, or to circumvent the leaderboards will be quarantined from all other players into a “Cheaters Pool”, where they’ll only be able to compete in multiplayer matches with other confirmed miscreants. In the event we decide to absolve any of these cheaters for their past transgressions they may re-enter play with the general public, however a second offense will result in their indefinite banishment. In either case, we will be removing invalid leaderboard entries to ensure that the players at the top of the charts have earned their spots fairly.”
You can do your part to keep Max Payne 3 a cheat-free environment, by heading out to Rockstar and letting them know.
