While it may remain somewhat of a niche, that doesn’t make it immune to cheaters looking to get their own quick fix of domination. However, it’s not always a safe bet for hackers as they’ll sometimes make themselves a bit more obvious than they would like - just like this one found on Twitch.
During a June 24 broadcast, streamer Str8Villians had been dabbling in Rainbow Six Siege when their team acquired a new member after one player had exited the game. Seconds into the third round of the match on Yacht, the new player - Datrocze - had an immediate impact, claiming a squad wipe in less than five seconds.
Of course, this raised some suspicion from the streamer, who mused: "Wait, what?” as the round came to a close. He got his answer in the post-round replay as Datrocze went flying into the sky, located the enemy, and gunned them down from a considerable distance.
“Are you kidding me?” asked Str8Villians, behind a ton of laughter. However, the hacker had a perfectly reasonable excuse for what had happened. “It’s my gaming chair,” they stated in a message, as they waited for the next round.
However, that one moment didn’t lead to an instant exit from the game for Datrocze, as they claimed they were going to turn the speed down for the next round.
Yet, the non-hacking members of the team decided to turn on the hacker and eliminate them from the round. Their attempts to force Datrocze to leave the game were ultimately futile as they stuck around.
As the hacker had made their impact, the game was quickly drawn to a close before everyone else dispersed into other matches.
It’s unknown if Ubisoft have been made aware of the hacker or any of their cheating methods, but it probably won’t take too long before their account is struck down following Str8Villians viral clip.
