A Battlefield V developer was banned from Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 4 for being too good at the game. So good in fact Black Ops 4’s inbuilt cheat detection system thought he was using an aim bot after countless head shots and god like targeting.
Said developer, Florian Le Bihan, is a gameplay designer at DICE’s Stockholm studio and is working on the upcoming Battlefield V. He’s also a former Battlefield pro going by the name DRUNKKZ3, which may explain his uncommonly high skill set when it comes to first person shooters.
He voiced his outrage via a tweet declaiming his innocence, saying ‘So i got banned from #BlackOps4 LOL. Could you please not @Treyarch ??? @TreyarchPC’ along with the screenshot above.
As is the case with most bans in Black Ops 4, Le Bihan wasn’t given a reason for his sentence to gaming purgatory, though he suspected his strong showing in multiplayer matches may have had something to do with it, triggering the game’s automated cheat detecting software. He tweeted, ‘My best guess is more based on stats and patterns like HS Ratio, kills per minute, head shot sequences and drastic performance trend changes over time. Combine multiple suspicious factors and a few alarms ring until the ban’.
His initial tweet was soon followed by a gameplay clip, which is for all intents and purposes a masterclass in FPS prowess, and a straight up blood bath for the opposing enemies. In what is a veritable flurry of head shots, split second cursor adjustments, and all with a plethora of weapons, the video will dampen the spirits of even the most seasoned Call of Duty player. This guy is a beast and pretty much a human aim bot. Here it is below.
Fortunately, Le Bihan story spread quickly and came to the attention of Treyarch who swiftly unbanned him in the early hours of yesterday. Ever since, multiple players with out of the ordinary skills have voiced their concerns that Treyarch’s anti-cheat measures may be tuned to be a little too draconian, citing bans on their own respective accounts.
