Here are a number frequently asked questions about cheating and banning:
Yes. Ghost Recon Breakpoint includes an anti-cheat solution because we strongly believe in providing a fair and welcoming environment to everyone.
Where can I find the Code of Conduct of the game?
Impact of a sanction in Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Depending on the severity of the sanction, you might get a mute from voice chat and text chat, a ban from public matchmaking services or both.
When a mute is applied, you will no longer be able to speak via voice chat or text chat in game, temporary or permanently.
When a ban is applied, it means you are temporary or permanently banned from using public matchmaking services, either in Player versus Enemy (PvE), Player versus Player (PvP), or both. Public matchmaking services include:
• Public coop mode, social hub access and raids in PvE.
• Custom and quickplay in pvp.
You will still be able to play in coop with your friends from your Uplay friends list. Only public matchmaking will be affected by a ban.
Can a player be banned on the first offence?
We take cheating, exploiting bugs and trying to gain an unfair advantage by circumventing game mechanics very seriously. We will take immediate disciplinary action against any account involved in such activities, up to and including a permanent ban for the first offence.
On other offenses (outside of cheating), you might get a fair warning first. If we notice any other breach of our code of conduct
, we will follow up with taking actions.
We consider all modifications or software allowing you to benefit from an unfair advantage towards other players unacceptable and subject to banning.
This includes but is not limited to:
• Cheats or Hacking
• Aimbots and triggerbots
• Attempts to modify client, saves or BattlEye software
• Data Mining
• Stream manipulation
You can appeal a ban by contacting us
. Our agents will carefully review your case and notify you of the decision. Depending on the result of this analysis, the sanction will be either lifted or maintained.
How do you detect cheating? What is BattlEye?
In Ghost Recon Breakpoint, we set up a variety of solutions to detect cheats or unauthorised modifications of the game, BattlEye being the primary one.
This non-intrusive solution operates in real time to block the usage of third party software or changes that could provide an unfair advantage to the player.
BattlEye will be installed along with Ghost Recon Breakpoint and will not share any personal or commercial information.
How can I make sure not to be banned?
To avoid a ban while playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint or any other game, we highly recommend you to play only on trusted machines. Use caution when installing any 3rd party software that could have an impact on the game or the BattlEye client.
For violations of the code of conduct that are not related to cheating you may receive a temporary ban preventing you from accessing public matchmaking services for a period up to 14 days. Any subsequent offence might lead to stricter consequences, e.g. a longer or permanent ban.
