    Combat Arms, as with all F2P games, is famously inflicted by hackers. Most hackers tend to be low-ranking players: these are the ones who use blatant hacks, such as OPKing (one position killing). However, some more advanced players use subtler hacks, like twitching, aimbotting, etc.

    Hacking has picked up lately, as has pressure against Nexon to remedy the problem. Seems that this pressure has payed off. On 31 May, Nexon unleashed a rash of bans—nearly 200—against many high-ranking players. Many captains and majors were banned for hacking, and I even saw a couple of lieutenant colonels on the list.

    It’s a happy day for legit CA players.
