5 of the Most Brutally Hacked Video Games
The year 2016 saw an upswing in significant data breaches being unveiled – the hacks aren’t set to stop in 2017 either.
2017 is set to be a year dominated by just as many data breaches, putting those with the world’s most popular password at a greater risk than ever before.
So when we come across Game Hacking, it’s a million dollar question. So why are so many people going online hacking games? How does online game hacking work? What is the appeal of game hacking on the Internet?
The Drive to Hack
While the gaming industry may have caught up, with the likes of server side authentication that is commonplace among MMORPG’s, hackers too have evolved; diversifying into in-game currencies and rewards.
Let’s take a look at the few popular games that were hacked in recent times.
The countdown goes from 5 to 1, let’s get started:
H1Z1 is a zombie survival game with an average of 50k concurrent players in recent times. H1Z1 has different game modes and play styles, such as Battle Royal (BR), which is basically a run-and-gun Deathmatch mode on a timer.
H1Z1 has a very large community of hackers. We can call them a community because they all work and improve together in some sort of way. The most popular third party program in H1Z1 right now is TMcheats. For 15 dollars a month, a user can get access to these cheats and gain the power to basically do what they want, and how they want to do it.
Call of Duty is a series of game which became popular and a big hit since the year 2003. And now (later year, 2016) they have developed a new instalment for this first person shooter game, the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.
Along with the new instalment, the cheat tool is also available. A cheat tool that was designed and developed to unlock weapons and other items in the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare. This tool is created and thoroughly undergone testing to ensure that it works in all platforms such as your PC, XBOX One, and/or PS4. The tool was also proven to be true and effective. As well as being safe from any trace of virus. Security features was added to the tool so it becomes untraceable for any game banns. All of these features and add-ons just for you to be able to maximize playing the Infinite Warfare without breaking your bank. And this is what we call the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Hack tool.
Grand Theft Auto V (also known as Grand Theft Auto Five, GTA 5 or GTA V) is a video game developed by Rockstar North. It is the fifteenth instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series and the successor of Grand Theft Auto IV.
The amount of people exploiting and cheating at GTA V is breaking new heights. Breaking records, perhaps, if there was such a record. But cheating is becoming a cheap thrill, and is frustrating legitimate players just trying to make their own way.
GTA V cheaters and exploiters might be ruining the game for other more legitimate users.
The most prolific cheats that you can find with GTA V don’t seem to be terribly malicious, just personal ways to gain money and in-game items. Still other cheats are for single player mode only and don’t affect anyone else’s experience. Who wouldn’t want to have a tremendous amount of money at their disposal to drop on the fastest most armoured vehicle, biggest guns and the best looking place in-game? Most people would love the opportunity, but sometimes it’s at odds with the philosophy of other players, and it can also turn rather mischievous in nature, crossing that socially acceptable boundary.
League of Legends is a game that will test both your skill and mind. Become a powerful Summoner and call forth brave Champions to fight on your behalf on the Fields of Justice. Prepare to experience the best elements of session-based games combined with persistent elements of MMORPG’s.
As the game continued to grow, so did the value of a user account. Players would spend hours unlocking new characters and in-game enhancements called “runes.” They’d also spend real money customizing accounts with things like cosmetic enhancements for their favourite champions. This gave a League of Legends account real value, which in turn spawned a rapidly growing side-line in hacking and selling.
Cheats for League of Legends in essence include any and all methods, techniques or software that can help you to perform better in ranked matches, level up faster, grind more IP or play more efficiently. Cheats can either be achieved manually or using software, such as hacks, jungle timers, counter tools or even bots. The most commonly used kind of cheat in League of Legends are Zoom Hacks that allow you to customize your camera view and Jungle Timers that allow you to accurately keep track of the spawn time on jungle creeps. Less popular, but more effective: Key combo bots are used to unleash spell combinations, aiming skill shots, automatically smite and ignite an a lot more. Keystroke bots are probably the most effective kind of cheating software for LOL out there at the moment when it comes to performing better in ranked games.
The most talked Hacks in the recent years was Sony PlayStation Hack. Six years ago, PlayStation Network was hacked and the personal details of 77m users accessed. It was the largest security breach of its kind to ever hit console gamers, and an event with huge repercussions for PlayStation – both in the short term for its users, left for weeks without access to online services, and longer term as Sony sought to win back customer trust.
Gamers weren’t the only ones affected. Sony was forced to apologise to developers whose game launches were disrupted by the attack, or whose online services were rendered unavailable.
An anonymous individual or group calling itself Lizard Squad had even claimed responsibility with a tweet reading “PSN Login #offline #LizardSquad”.
With no real reason or cause revealed for the latest PSN disruption, a DDoS attack is only speculative. Still, gamers around the world will be hoping that Sony is only engaging in some unscheduled maintenance, rather than being the target of yet another DDoS attack.
