Players have started to report aimbot cheaters in Halo Infinite, just a week after the launch of multiplayer beta.

Halo Infinite multiplayer beta has been a great experience on all platforms since its surprise launch last week. 

Players have been praising the optimisation and polish that is on a superb level, which is especially important when the game's main competitors Battlefield 2042 and Call of Duty: Vanguard received such disappointing reviews from both outlets and players.

However, it seems that the honeymoon period with Halo Infinite multiplayer is over as cheaters have already made their way into the game on PC. 

Since Halo Infinite has cross-play between Xbox and PC, this affects players on consoles too and in a big way.

As you can see in one of the short clips posted by Redditor KanoxHD , an alleged cheater is using aimbot cheat, which basically locks his aim to the nearby player a couple of times, giving him an unfair advantage.

Such cheating is, of course, terrible in every game but it's especially bad in a high skill-based game like Halo, where players with better aim and movement have a huge advantage thanks to high TTK. 

Since the game is not officially out yet, we are hopeful that 343 Industries will have some additional anti-cheat ready for launch or at least ban cheaters on a regular basis.

Halo Infinite multiplayer is available now on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
