US Army To Shock And Awe Game Cheaters

from the look-at-who-you're-messing-with dept

It’s been a few years, now, since the US Army released a video game as a recruiting tool. Of course, along with becoming a video game company, the Army has now discovered that this can require more than just producing a game. Broadband Reports has the story of how the Army is now threatening to crack down on game cheaters — and they’re making it clear that you’re not just messing with some gaming company, but the US Army and US Army computers, which makes cheating a cybercrime. The threats from the development team aren’t specific, but they’re clearly designed to “shock & awe” the griefers and cheaters who are trying to cause trouble.
