‘Splatoon 3’ Hackers Are Being Banned Ahead Of The Game’s Release

Splatoon 3 comes out next month and Nintendo is already banning players who manage to hack the game, gaining access to the trial range earlier this week’s demo. However, it’s unclear if the ban is for Splatoon 3 or for NSO as a whole.

One data miner in particular managed to uncover Splatoon 3’s anti-cheat measures, according to NintendoLife.

They found that the anti-cheat system is also available for demo and that a patch that allows you to get into test rank early serves as the number one reason for bans.

Anti-cheat was first implemented in Splatoon 2 back in 2018 and, as it seems to be doing in 3, it checked for any in-game mods; Mods, no matter how big or small, cosmetic or beneficial to online play, are likely to get you banned.
