Multiplayer shooters such as Call of Duty, Apex Legends, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive are popular with many players because all players have the same requirements and usually their own skills decide whether to win or lose. Unfortunately, this premise is often spoiled by players who use cheats to gain an unfair advantage.
The developers of such titles are of course working hard to do something about the high number of cheaters. For example, Raven Software recently blocked over 50,000 Call of Duty: Warzone accounts and are probably working behind the scenes on a new anti-cheat measure.
For the new Battlefield 2042 (buy now € 56.99) DICE is now rumored to be using Easy AntiCheat in their fight against cheaters. This was explained by the well-known “insider” Tom Henderson on Twitter. According to him, the Technical Play Test for Battlefield 2042 has a visible anti-cheat. A day later, Henderson confirmed that this was Easy AntiCheat.
Easy AntiCheat is definitely one of the better known programs when it comes to fighting cheaters. The program is of course not perfect and many games that use Easy AntiCheat still have to deal with cheaters from time to time. However, it is definitely better than not having any anti-cheat measure at all.
Neither EA nor DICE have yet confirmed that Easy AntiCheat will be used for their new title. We will probably find out by October 22, 2021 at the latest, when the title is officially released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC.
