SCUM Patch Adds Anti-Cheat After Hackers Run Riot
SCUM's barely been in Early Access for long and it's already had to clamp down on hackers with anti-cheat.
SCUM is many things, one of them being a survival game in Early Access with plenty of promise but just as many customary issues. A previous patch tried to fix the “teleporting” in PVP and has helped somewhat, though it’s still not brilliant. The next item on Gamespires itinerary is handling the loveless swines who are hacking to gain an advantage.
They’ve just rolled a patch out to (hopefully) put an end to it with EAC, alongside plenty of other fixes and improvements. Cheaters will always try to find a way to prosper, so some may still leak through, though not quite to the extent we’ve seen at this early point in the game’s life. Baby steps, and all that.
