Escape from Tarkov has banned 10k cheaters, and real-money traders are next

BattleState chief operations officer Nikita Buyanov says the studio has plans to address real-money trading and high pings as well.

Taking to the Tarkov subreddit, Buyanov provided players with an update on BattleState’s plan for addressing cheating in the game.

BattlEye, the anti-cheat solution Tarkov uses, has been responsible for nearly 10,000 bans, and Buyanov says BattleState is working with BattlEye to refine that system to make bans process as quickly as possible.

The studio also plans on adding an in-game player report system – although Buyanov writes that reports will be used alongside BattlEye data to make a determination on whether a ban is appropriate.

Buyanov went on to say that BattleState is banning anyone caught trading with real money in the Tarkov flea market – and that policy covers buyers and sellers both.
