The lockbox is the key that allows hackers that continue to hack.

Remove Lockbox is removed the ability of the hacker to keep his stock of weapons stolen.

 

The hacker can buy 20 accounts of infection for less than 30 euros.

He can hack without problem thanks to the lockbox and promotion of the game that allowed him to have the least expensive game on other sites.

Or he could drop the weapons to another account with a guy equipped with a Military Ruck?

Removing lockboxes wont mean a thing.

What WOULD mean a thing though, would be tracing the items of any banned account, and taking note if there is a consistent moving of items from banned accounts to another account. 

Then they could either:

a) Rewind the items back to the GI of whatever account the items belonged to before the banned account acquired them, or

B) Just delete any items ever held by a banned account completely from the game.

What about trades? Maybe some innocent player who'd traded with him! Need a thorough investigation

To be honest i'm not too worried about that. They can't implement this with retroactive effect, but if they implemented it from say, tomorrow, it would only mean that you would have to pick the guys you trade with, with even more care than you do now.

 

Meaning, more reason for the trusted trader list and accounts with a certain amount of played time. This would also make it A LOT harder for a hacker to just come to the forum and sell his items within an hour.

PunkBuster is banning players every single minute. Are you not watching the chat? We won't get better AC than what we got now (although i really hope they fix the constant PB kicks). It is time to come up with solutions to avoid the problems that hackers can cause in the short span of time that they are actually in the game.

 

Give us Veteran servers and Item tracing and its pretty much useless to hack in Infestation.

They barely have the backend hardware resources to run the game and forums, there is no way they will shell out the dough to do something like trace weapons. If every item had a unique identifier it would take a massive database and some serious hardware just to track the movements of weapons from one account another. Also the first time one of the kiddies lost a precious gun they got I can only imagine the rage posts that would be popping up everywhere. Its bad enough with someones game crashing and they lose a backpack and mosin and we all have to listen to that.


Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs; deal with it......

I dont always shoot, but when I do I tend to shoot first, just ask Greedo.....

If there is a one off then obviously there is no problem BUT if there is account 999 is TAKING items and ONLY taking items with an account that later got banned and it continues to do this then it's obvious

Well, i'm not sure how items moving between players are handled right now, but i guess we can agree that items are tracked to some extend, as things like lockboxes are bound to players. My two different solutions offer very different demands on the serverside. 

 

I'm not too sure about how much it demands of the server, but i do know that most MMO's have this sort of tracking in place for items.

Hackers can use their global without being in a safezone, so this entire thread is completely incorrect.

Those bans that are coming in chat are FairFight manual bans.  Punkbuster does delayed bans(it detects the hack then some odd days later or after it detects a certain amount of people it bans them all at once).

Lockbox have anything to do, if they hack its because of steam sale .i saw that hacker buy account for only 1$ , also they just ban the account not the ip or the computer(hardware ban).
When they ll start banning like i just said we will see less hacker.

Please post the evidence for that.

I think that both PB and FairFight bans are posted in chat, Right after PB was implemented, we saw a HUGE increase in bans posted in chat and on Twitter.
