20K Overwatch hackers banned in South Korea

Overwatch players can rest easier knowing that they can get a fair shake in their online battles after thousands of hackers have been banned from the game.

Blizzard Entertainment, the game’s developer, announced the company banned more than 20,000 players in South Korea on the grounds of ”unauthorized use of third-party programs,” also known as illegal hacks, according to PC Gamer.

Illegal hacks have reportedly been an issue for Korean players who have reported cheaters to no avail, with gamers, in some cases, launching DDoS attacks against their opponent’s connection in order to cause massive lag. Aimbots, which allow automatic aiming, is another popular exploit used by cheaters.
