Killers with bad connection manipulate the hit registration

Platform: PC (Probably consoles too?)

Description of the issue:

I already made a ticket to, but they said I should rather post it here. So here we go.

I have a technical background and a good understanding on how dedicated servers work. I'm pretty sure - based on my observation - that dead by daylights hit registration is client sided. This is a big No-No when it comes to dedicated servers. With client sided hit registration the servers preferring people, especially killers with a bad connection. The hit registration should always be server sided, killers can manipulate their connection to exploit the client side hit registration.

I've encountered a killer with a bad connection and recorded a video of it, luckily the round got canceled but damage on the game play experience was done.

Please have a visit on the recording I've made: - 0:00 to 4:13

Please make the hit registration server sided. If your hit registration is already server sided (but I really doubting it), then I don't know where and how you [BAD WORD] that up.

Steps to reproduce (if possible): Killer's having a bad connection.

How often does this occur: Very often.

PS: also fix Hitboxes.

    I'm gonna bump this, because the devs don't seem to be very interested in this issue so far.

    bump. Killers can still hit survivors 10 meters away if they have a bad connection or manipulating their speed with external programs (like netlimiter) in order to manipulate the hit registration.

    Make the hit registration server sided!
