What was your moment when you got accused of cheating...?

WampiritaWampirita Member Posts: 556

What was your funniest moment when you got accused of cheating, but it came out to be just the opposite side not understanding a perk/game mechanic. Also if you can, explain your misunderstanding too, so future people who will read it, may get a chance to learn something new.

I'll start:

I got accused of cheats, because when playing Doctor, I found multiple people hiding in lockers that my illusionary Doctors were staring at.

Illusionary Doctors look your way, and Doctor can see them. So if you're trying to hide from Doc, try to avoid the line of sight of his clones too. It's not Hag's clone, they don't follow your position :D

Also Mad Grit. People remember this perk only for fast attacking. Please read full perk description before you throw your salt at the killer for cheating your wiggle bar ;-;

    Leprose Lichen gets me called a wallhacker a lot. "How did you just know where I was???"

    Been accused many times of wall hacks thanks to aura reading perks, etc. I stream rarely, so was able to capture the moment on one occasion when someone was convinced there was no way I should know where they were, and no amount of explaining how BBQ works would satisfy them

    okay, that was entertaining LMAO.

    Sad thing is that i would probably fall for Head on too, since it's Jane lmao. But DC over it, that's a first

    Was accused a few weeks ago of using an automatic dead hard hack.

    Otherwise I was accused of wall hacks before as killer because I heard someone throw a wall (heard the grass move).

    M&A + Nurses Calling on Nurse = Good old wallhacks :P

    one perk, spies from the shadows... lol

  • FFirebranddFFirebrandd Member Posts: 2,076

    I don't know if it was a full on accusation of hacking... but I had a Survivor questioning how I knew they were hidden behind a rock... and I was Legion in Frenzy after a hit. Killer Instinct bro.

    believe it or not I've been called a cheater before just because I predicted a killers mindgames

    I have lost track of the number of times I was accused of hacking because I was using Lightborn.

    No, I am cheating. I just hate your stupid beamers and I love the look of panic when I run right at you and clobber you in the face as you wonder why it is not working.

    Found super faint scratch marks and a crow flying just as I saw the marks as legion. Found them in a locker and they accused me right after the game ended. They were FURIOUS.

    SBMM gave me a 70 hour killer (I'm at 1.6k) playing Bubba, that I managed to loop for the last 3 gens and stun quite a few times since he was very inexperienced. He accused me of cheating "because you hit me with every pallet!".

    I also played against a killer recently that got hit validated three times and accused me of hacking, even though on my screen, they were simply greedy swings that missed. Also, funnily enough they downed me once, so they should have known better.

  • WampiritaWampirita Member Posts: 556

    I never thought I would see a need to explain a BBQ for anyone :v It's like the most common aura perk in existence

  • WampiritaWampirita Member Posts: 556

    Hard to admit, but I'm guilty of that XD I didn't know about it for a long time

  • StarrseedStarrseed Member Posts: 950

    Most recently I had people that didn't know that distortion doesn't block legions killer instinct.

    And my all time favorite is playing Demogorgon. So many people really think bhvr took them from when the license endet

  • danielmaster87danielmaster87 Member Posts: 6,666

    I got accused of having aimbot on Huntress because I did a good shot, while being on console btw.

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 2,211

    I got called a wallhacker for finding someone 5 seconds into the match

    I was using Lethal Pursuer and was playing Artist

  • XerraFoxXerraFox Member Posts: 157

    When I walked out of the exit gate with a bear trap on my head (which wasn't active)

  • humanbeing1704humanbeing1704 Member Posts: 7,426

    There's been 3 instances where I've been accused of hacking on legion because I found them with killer instinct keep in mind these people had 1000+ hours so I don't know if they were trolling or genuinely had no idea how it works

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 10,087

    Had retribution on my huntress and found him hiding behind a tree as blendette

  • CybilCybil Member Posts: 633

    Iron Will w/ Lucky Break but I think it was just a contributing factor. My friend was the one who was explicitly called out. Funny thing is my friend was brand spanking new to the game.

  • GentlemanFridgeGentlemanFridge Member Posts: 2,593

    I got accused with non-descript “hacking” because I heard and smacked a Meg behind me when I picked up a Jane.

    ”Dont need to say anything, we know”

    Me: “?”


    ”How did you know I (Meg) was there?”

    Me: “Your feet. They make noise.”

    And then they went on to Megsplain that Meg is one of the quietest survivors.

    Was accused to being a Cheater when playing as Billy because I knew where one Survivor was. He just was on BBQ and was pretty new to the game (SWF with two viewers, at least one of them probably brought him into my game, this was with Rank-based Matchmaking).

    And I got accused of being a Hacker by a Blight, because I had 0 Friends on my Steam Profile, 0 Games on Steam, no profile picture and a Level 0-Steam Account and yet had a full Perk Loadout on my Survivor. Telling him that my Steam Profile is private and that this is the reason he cannot see my games etc. did not help...

  • AlkaloidssOPAlkaloidssOP Member Posts: 154

    I got called a hacker when using Lightborn against 4 man SWF with flashlights. They kept trying to blind me, their Kate even ran directly into me and tried to flashlight me from point blank range as I was picking up her friend. And got downed because of that.

    They just couldn't comprehend that it was a perk.

    Agitation and Mad Grit both seems to have a tendency to cause confusion.

  • WampiritaWampirita Member Posts: 556

    I've seen legions being screamed at for that so many times XD Their power isn't THAT hard to understand

  • PepsidotPepsidot Member Posts: 1,484

    My brother gets accused of cheating a lot, probably enhanced by the fact that he usually uses his L3 meg. He is simply a Hope enjoyer and there have been countless killers telling him he is using subtle speed cheats in end game chat which is always funny.

  • Chaos999Chaos999 Member Posts: 532

    I got accused of hacking by a new player (I assume) who went around the map cleansing my hex totems, but apparently they kept "regenerating"

    Had to explain that's how plaything and pentimento work.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 5,296

    Anytime I win I get accused of cheating.
