The recent release of the alpha build of DayZ has caused quite a bit of excitement online. The alpha version of the mod is available for free download, so players can experience the voxel-based gameplay of the PC version of the mod before it’s officially released. However, there is a lot of confusion around the DayZ Hack, as well as the legality of using them. Keep reading to learn more about the reality of the DayZ Hack, as well as how to tell if you’re being hacked.
What is a DayZ Hack?
A DayZ Hack is a third-party program that manipulates the game on an individual level. This can include anything from spawning items to removing enemies, as well as other hacks. A DayZ Hack is typically used to create an unfair advantage during gameplay.
Is Using a Hack Legal?
There has been a lot of confusion about the legality of using DayZ hacks, but the truth is that it’s not illegal. As long as you don’t share the hacked client with anyone else, and you use it for your own personal gameplay, then you are technically not breaking any laws. The developers have also issued a statement about whether or not hacked clients are against the game’s TOS. On the day of release, they tweeted that they “probably won’t be banning players who use hacks.”
How to Tell if You’re Being Hacked
It’s important to know the signs of a hacks attack. Unfortunately, players can be hacked without even realizing it. The most common hack begins with an innocent player asking you to join their game. When you accept, they will automatically teleport you to their location and trap you there so that other hackers can kill you. There are a few ways to tell if someone is hacking, though.
- If the person has a high-quality weapon and wants to trade for your items without any consideration for your risk and safety, then this may be a possible hack
- If the person is using illegal programs like ESP or Kill Aura, then it’s likely that they are hacking
- If the person has a good looking character or gear but they don’t have any items in their inventory, then they have probably hacked
Make sure not to click on links sent by people in chat or in messages. Hackers may send out these links which will infect your computer with malware and cause all sorts of issues that could compromise your security while playing DayZ.
Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee that your DayZ game will remain unhacked. Hackers are able to inject their code into the game even if you have all of the latest patches installed. That means that if you play DayZ with a hacked version of the mod, it’s possible that your account could be compromised or stolen. What’s more, this type of hacking isn’t limited to DayZ– it could happen in any PC game you play. The best way to protect yourself when playing an online multiplayer game is by using a VPN service so you can access the internet anonymously.
