  1. We have partnered with Easy Anti-Cheat to help us find and ban players who use cheat software, hacks, or custom scripts to disrupt our players’ experiences in Insurgency: Sandstorm. We take cheating very seriously, so we appreciate all of our fans who help us in combating this issue. If you come across a player that you suspect is cheating or if you find a cheat available for Sandstorm online, please fill out a Cheat Report for Easy Anti-Cheat to investigate. If you’re reporting a cheat for sale/download, please include a link to the relevant site. If you encounter a player who you think is using hacks or cheats, grab the replay ID of the match from the History section of the main menu and it include it in your report. Be sure to watch the replay first and include the approximate time that the player can be seen using a cheat in the report as well. How to find a replay ID and Steam ID: Go to the Main Menu Select “History” Mouse over the replay, then click “Copy ID” and paste it in your report. Start the replay and go to the scoreboard Click on the suspected player’s name and “Copy Steam ID”. Then paste it in your report. Click here for the EAC Cheat report: EAC Cheat Report For more information about EAC, including bans and appeals, check out our EAC post here: Community Guidelines: EAC & Cheating Exploiting Design Issues Our team has been working very hard to get Insurgency: Sandstorm to where it is today, and we are still developing improvements and new content for the future. That being said, we have seen some players exploiting bugs in design. Examples of this include: Hiding in rocks/walls Exploiting Out of Bounds areas Glitching into unplayable areas Spawn camping If a player is exploiting these mechanics or does something that feels unfair (but they’re not necessarily using hacks), please take a screenshot or video along with an explanation of what is happening, and send it to [email protected] so that our team can recreate and address the issue.

    Useful utility programs.

    Idle Master Extended Useful program for those who want to collect steam cards faster, it idles multiple steam games at once to increase chances of a card drop. WARNING DO NOT play any steam games while this is running. VAC will think you are hacking and will possibly ban you. Steam Cleaner Installing/uninstalling games on steam leaves residual files that are sometimes hidden. This program finds them and deletes them.
