Battlefield 3 bans bring the pain to cheaters

Hackers beware.

EA has banned hundreds of Battlefield 3 cheaters across all platforms.

And it has issued a stark warning to hackers: more bans are coming.

"This week we've banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting (such as boosting)," said a Tweet on the Battlefield Twitter page.

Then, "We are working on banning as many people as we can as quickly as we can. We have a zero tolerance policy for cheating."

One exploit cheaters are currently enjoying is a glitch that enables them to rank up tens of thousands of points in a single game as an engineer.

A patch is expected soon. In a series of Tweets EA said squads and communications are a "top priority" and will be "taken care of".

Developer DICE has already discussed the features it may tweak in the patch.
