Splatoon 2 Hacking Measures Further Enforced By Nintendo

Actually, they’ve been around since June.

Cheaters beware: according to “researchers” from the Splatoon Modding Hub, Nintendo has implemented anti-cheating measures that detect various edits in game data. While the exact specifics remain unknown, these measures have been in place since June’s Version 3.1.0 update, where offending players are banned one day after being flagged. While relatively harmless mods such as model edits and music replacements are reported as “probably safe,” as they always say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Still, these flags probably aren’t enough for some players — as some fans may recall, one player tiring of the game’s consistent weapon/ink meter hacking took it upon himself to hack the game’s X-Rank Leaderboards, all for the sake of sending a message for Nintendo. Thing is, that took place a month after the 3.1.0 update, so clearly Nintendo’s emphasis on players policing the game isn’t entirely working out.
