Islands of Nyne Hacks & Cheats
A glimpse on Islands of Nyne Cheaters
Even if the game is a relatively new battle royale, are there already Islands of Nyne cheats? And if so, what kind of Islands of Nyne hacks are there and how bad is the situation? Also, what is Define Human Studios, the developer and publisher of IoN doing against aimbots, wallhacks and other cheats?
So, what kind of Islands of Nyne hacks are out there?
Islands of Nyne Aimbot
Automated targeting in some form, usually called aimbot, is common in most Islands of Nyne multi-hacks. But, not every Islands of Nyne cheat provides an integrated aimbot.
Aimbots can be trimmed and setup to be legit, but we also see a high number of reports of rage-hackers and instant-kills in Islands of Nyne right now.
Islands of Nyne Trigger
Trigger or Triggerbots are part of most aimbot-providing hacks. An Islands of Nyne player with an active triggerbot will automatically shoot as soon as the player either aims on the enemy or in a defined field-of-view radius. Common synonyms are "Auto Shoot" or "Auto Fire".
Islands of Nyne Wallhack
"Real wallhacks" (wireframe, transparent walls and similar) are uncommon these days and usually not part of Islands of Nyne Hacks. Really common are ESPs though:
Islands of Nyne ESP
ESP, short for extrasensory perception, is the most common form of wallhacks in games these days. An ESP is an overlay displaying different, most of the times configurable, information on an enemy players position. Common Islands of Nyne ESPs include player and loot ESPs. Player positions can usually be shown by a 2D Box, name or distance. Loot ESPs in Islands of Nyne show loot with 2D boxes, names, type or distance.
Islands of Nyne Speedhack
Is that Flash? No, it's just a speedhack user. If you see a player running with an impossible fast movement speed and probably killing people while doing it, he's cheating. Don't mistake them for lagging players though!
Islands of Nyne Anti-Cheat
Islands of Nyne is using BattlEye as their anti-cheat system. BattlEye is a 3rd party anti-cheat protection service, which works on client- and server-side. It scans the computer for running cheats and if it detects cheating bans the user from the game.
Besides BattlEye, Define Human studios - the developer of Islands of Nyne - relies on a manual report system, which is not integrated int he game yet. Cheating reports have to be manually submitted via google form, with manually produced media, like videos or screenshots.
Islands of Nyne Cheats FAQ
How bad is cheating in Islands of Nyne?
Due to Islands of Nyne's bumpy launch and playerbase drop, the cheating situation is not that bad. Cheat development is a business, so many cheat providers are still waiting to see how the Islands of Nyne player base and the game itself develops.
That still did of course not stop some developers, so that there are Islands of Nyne cheats since day 1 in the wild. Good thing is, there are still close to none public free Islands of Nyne hacks. There are however a couple of paid and private cheats. We expect more cheats to release over the next couple of days.
How to report cheaters in Islands of Nyne
If you have sighted a possible Islands of Nyne cheater, especially if it's something obvious like a speedhack or instant-kill aimbot, you have to report these via an external web form. You find the most recent option to report in the Islands of Nyne discord. There is no option to report cheaters in the game yet.
We hope the developers will implement an in-game report asap.
What is the difference between an Islands of Nyne cack and cheat?
Even though they're used as synonyms these days, you should always use the term cheat. Cheaters are the ones using the cheat-program, by downloading or buying it. Hackers are the people finding the exploit and writing the cheat code itself. So don't compliment them as hacker, call them a cheater.
