Through the Outriders demo period, developer Folks Can Fly has up to now recognized 200 cheaters out of round 2 million whole individuals. Whereas the quantity is comparatively small, the devs do not plan to go straightforward on them, or any future gamers who assume they’ll get across the sport’s anti-cheat system. As reported by PC Gamer, the studio has introduced that cheaters will obtain a everlasting on-screen “model” for even one infringement.
The potential punishment is described as a “discreet however seen” watermark that will probably be overlayed on cheater’s screens, completely marking them as untrustworthy. The watermark concept is probably going aimed toward YouTubers and streamers who could be tempted to make use of hacks to build up click-worthy quantities of high-level loot, like one demo participant who was known as out by the workforce after they “gave themself 600 Legendary Weapons.”
In addition to being branded, cheaters will not have the ability to matchmake with law-abiding gamers, just like Fall Guys’ method of letting cheaters play together on their own “Cheater Island.” For many who are anxious about unintentionally being branded a cheater, these guidelines solely apply to these actively making an attempt to get round Outriders’ anti-cheat software program or utilizing third-party instruments to tamper with the sport. Particularly, dishonest in Outriders is outlined as:

- Externally modifying sport time to cut back time-dependent options akin to distributors and challenges
- Utilizing a coach program or just like achieve benefits throughout the sport
- Utilizing gameplay altering packages akin to aimbots or wallhacks
Those that already cheated within the demo model will mechanically obtain the cheater model going into the sport, although Folks Can Fly is providing a brief amnesty to gamers who remorse this selection. “Should you cheated throughout the demo ‘simply to strive it out’ however want to go into the primary sport unbranded, you will need to DELETE ALL CHARACTERS AND ITEMS ON YOUR ENTIRE ACCOUNT so as to wipe the slate clear,” the developer acknowledged.
