#2

i so want to play this game on pc. hackers killed it from what i remember. maybe i will reinstall and just check up on that.


#3

I started playing some Battlefront yesterday. Only solo missions though so I can’t comment on the hackers.

I do know that yesterday during a BF1 match someone was banned. Message popped up on-screen saying random guy was given the boot. Not sure if Battlefront has similar mechanics.


#4

Not sure about the hacker situation since I play on PS4. I would imagine most aimbotters have moved on to BF1 or other newer PC shooters though.
