Over 16,600 Cheaters Banned from Escape From Tarkov in a Month Thanks to BattlEye

Battlestate Games has announced a significant victory for its popular title, Escape From Tarkov. From July 28 to August 31, with the unwavering support of the BattlEye anti-cheat system, the game’s developers have banned a staggering 16,600 cheaters.

This news is a sigh of relief for any dedicated Escape From Tarkov player. Cheating disrupts the genuine gaming experience, making it less enjoyable for honest players. Recognizing this, Battlestate Games has relentlessly pursued to ensure a level playing field for all.

The developers’ commitment to transparency is evident. Not only have they announced the number of bans, but they’ve also taken a bold step by publishing the names of the banned cheaters. Termed the ‘list of shame’, this move serves as a deterrent, sending a clear message to would-be cheaters about the consequences of their actions.

For those curious about the offenders, the list is publicly accessible on this Google Spreadsheet.

BattlEye’s role in this massive crackdown cannot be understated. As one of the leading anti-cheat systems in the world, its integration with Escape From Tarkov has undoubtedly been a game-changer.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
