The world of gaming is a competitive one and in order to excel players have to log lots of hours and often spend quite a bit of money. To gain an edge over competitors some gamers turn to game cheats, which a lot of people consider unethical and cheesy. One of the most popular cheats that are used in multiplayer games are aimbots, software that automate aiming for a player to make it easier to kill opponents.
Aim bots for PC are most commonly used in online shooters like Fortnite and many people are concerned that this type of game hack is unethical as it takes a lot, if not all, of the skill out of playing the game. However, the fact is that if an aimbot is used correctly it will be virtually impossible to tell the difference between the software and a skilled player. If a player is abusing the software and using it to ruin other players’ games however, this will be very obvious and these kinds of players will often get reported and banned quickly.
Simple Computer Hacks That Are Legitimately Useful
Aimbots can be installed in a variety of ways, from dedicated hardware that enables keyboard and mouse use on consoles (like the Cronus Zen or XIM Apex) to software that installs directly onto a PC. Typically, the more sophisticated aimbots are able to take advantage of the way graphics are processed on a PC, scanning and analyzing pixel data in order to determine an enemy’s position. This allows the software to detect and automatically ‘lock on’ to an enemy even when they are far away or behind walls and then fire at them at very high accuracy.
