- They’ll use them knowing nothing will happen, wish there was a way for Respawn to stop these players.
Hey im sorry I haven't played apex in months. What's a strike pack?ID: hlii1ut
It makes a single fire gun like the 301 or Flatline shoot like laser beam with practically no recoil. Its a device you plug at the back of your controller with built in mods. Picture your trigger finger maximizing shots as fast as the game allows you, a Strike pack does this for you by simply pressing down on the trigger.ID: hlijs7g
That's total cheating. Plus smurfing? What a D bagID: hliwxvw
I thought strikepack was just like the additional paddles from sony for play station. It just adds two additional configurable buttons, and saves you trouble of fucking your fingers by playing claw. I didn't know it had ability to mod the game.
Solving Strike pack issue is more on the Sony/Microsoft end, as they are the only ones that can detect and update controllers/consoles.ID: hlijpia
Makes sense, questioning why Respawn said they had a way to know for ALGS tho.ID: hlik21f
Yh but they can monitor ALGS closely, whole different ball game when it's not competitionID: hljq5po
ALGS is a private server and organisation where they can inspect hardware used prior if they wish.ID: hlj3rmk
One of two things. Due to the low playersize they can monitor them individually or they just said so to scare people away from using them since its not worth risking it.ID: hlirfik
They absolutely should, but in the meantime, devs could be scanning controller input to watch for patterns that match known mods. They could also use heuristics for detect unknown ones by looking for precisely timed patterns that are exactly replicated beyond the abilities of a human.ID: hliw9mz
Ya see, the only issue I see with this is the patterns won’t be exactly the same every time. Not only do values change based on different attachments, especially sights and barrels, but the recoil patterns are obviously coded on zero right stick input. So naturally you see the issue here is no one who is using these devices would ever straight up not be touching their right stick, thus on the input side it wouldn’t look exactly the same every time and the player stick input actually serves as the ‘human error’ rather than it looking exactly perfect/the same every time.
Not to mention that becomes a very very slippery slope if you start to accuse players based on input data because the game’s recoil patterns are in fact master-able since they are the same every time and not random. I see what your saying by looking at the input data of those who seem to get it ‘perfect’ every time but as I said before even that can be hard to pin down.
I do know that there is a way to tell on the input side of things if you look at dead zone-activity especially for those who xim or play kbm thru controller.. but like I said I don’t believe that alone is sufficient evidence to go around mass banning players
I swear every one of these posts about strike packs just teach other people they exist and they go get one for themselves.ID: hljadrt
This is exactly what happens. What’s that I can get flawless aim that won’t get me banned and brag to my friends about my rank and KD for like $30?ID: hljrpwb
I think you have to pay monthly for the mods on top of the initial $30 for controller, but yeah, people still pay for that shit.ID: hlk29js
I still think that's better than keeping them in the underground.
The more acknowledged their existence and the more they're used, the most probable that any of the big players do something about it.ID: hljleuh
yeah I had never even heard of them until this postID: hljorwp
They've been around for a few years now and sell them at Walmart
The amount of people here asking what is a Strike Pack worries me, I fear many of them will buy it once they know what it is.ID: hljq32o
What is strike pack and where do I get it from ? And can I use it for all the games such as fortnite and warzone ?? Can I use it on girls ? Will it make me alpha man ?m Also am not asking for myself. Am asking for my friend.ID: hljumxw
Yes for all of the above
practicing recoil pregame in arenas this guy goes "yo chill why tf you shooting so much". tell his as much and he goes "pff recoil, I got that strikepack" then tried to explain that it's not cheating because you "gotta know how to use it" some people just really think it's OK to play with no recoilID: hljqdih
Everyone who admits to using one downplays it. Seen loads of people on reddit saying they don't even make a difference, I'm like why use it then?!
I love the immediate justification of cheating "I'm masters on my main," as if that should make any sense. As a guy that solo queues to masters, there is no end of hardstuck d4's that say the same exact line.ID: hljgnog
It's the same in overwatch. Its meant to be a bell curve but everyone I meet is a main gm top 500 player even though none of them look anywhere past low masters - mid masters after spectating. It's so easy to lie on the internet
People like this just love to have all the advantages possible to cover for their lack of skill
Im not too familiar with it so could someone please explain to me why strikepacks are cheating? Aren't they just those things that add paddles on the back or something?ID: hliv34i
They are exploited to get anti recoil and very fast firing on single mode weapons. I have encountered them on PC, shit is getting bad.ID: hlj91tf
Singlefire hemlok go brrrrrID: hliqwpy
You can program them to make anti recoils cheatsID: hliy8lg
That's only of you use them like someone with a proper conscience, they have mods for anti recoil and rapidfire
one of the tech guys at Microsoft confirmed a while ago that they can easily detect if someone uses a strike pack/Chronus. they said they will not do a system wide ban of players using it and it is up to developers of each game to decide if they want to ban them or not
if that is true I think Respawn is to blame that they are still used (at least on Xbox)
Lol the day I saw gamestop selling strike packs I knew it was overID: hljade8
Whaaaaaaaat!? That's fucking awful. I wish there was something sony and Microsoft could do about that. Can't they go after them for selling TOS breaking equipment or something
I've lost to people running strike packs in RANKED. This is gold and I'm absolutely pissed off. They are firing those weapons way too fast. Unless Respawn forces people to go to next gen consoles then sony and Microsoft can control itID: hlixdzw
I got into a fight earlier and went from full shield to downed in practically a second or two. Do you think I ran into someone using one of those packs?ID: hlj2ovm
If you watch the gameplay of the person who killed you, you can pretty fast tell if they're using a strike pack watching their next fight
It’s really sad how the cycle goes. If your bad you’re not having fun because your losing, if you’re good your having fun until sbmm kicks in and then you’re losing.ID: hlkdbo9
No wonder so many brs add bots. Though it instantly losses authenticity once you know/notice. Bots works for kids for sure though
A lot of people are about to get worse at this game when the next gen updates launch and they can’t use their old controller anymore. I’m sure they’ll just keep the previous gen version of the game in that case though, since they crutch so hard on their rapid fire and recoil control.
"I'm masters on my main"
Sure you are, bud.
The amount of people who are commenting "get gud" and excusing cheating is very toxic. It's freaking apex. Just a game. It isn't that serious. If you have to buy stuff just to have an advantage over someone else in a video game is pathetic.
These strike packs are device mods from Cronus that players connect to their controllers, and allow them to modify their gaming equipment to give them an inherent and unfair advantage in-game.
Players attach scripts which give them benefits including aim assistance, rapid-fire and no-recoil mods. It's cheating, and its gotten to such a diseased lvl that solutions need to be implemented all-around. Hardware, software, everywhere.
I hate smurfers. I’m a casual player and I’m not very good, but I get decent lobbies so I still have fun. Recently a smurfer was in my team. We dropped and they went straight into a fight alone and died. My teammate went to get her banner, got attacked by both sides, died and then she called us noobs. They were only level 2 so they were probably smurfing
The problem is insanely bad at the moment if people don’t realize.
Respawn needs to go full COD with their cheat software. They also need to start making algorithms that analyze these super players, and then literally start matching them with other like cheaters.
Be cool if they'd ban systems or ips. Even if just temporary. It'd prevent people from using their main for a while.
Respawn banned a shit load of players just a few months ago, I believe. Most of the trouble makers are on PlayStation.
The best way to stop them is report them in-game. You might not think it's effective because respawn doesn't share the results of reports, but posting online is next to doing nothing because it's highly unlikely the team responsible for reports looks online, where things can be exaggerated or faked easily. Also you're on Xbox, so report them on the console as well, it's likely against Xbox tos to use 3rd party software at all.ID: hljdstg
Theres no ingame way to report people on the same console as you, which basically is asking the playerbase to post names and which hunt. Not everyone knows about hidoutsID: hljf0ellol
