Max Payne 3 cheater’s pool now live

Wednesday, 11th July 2012 02:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Noticed a sudden decrease in available Max Payne 3 players? Son, you’re locked up with the rest of the dirty cheats.

“We’ve taken steps to quarantine confirmed cheaters in Max Payne 3 Multiplayer. Starting today, anyone we’ve found using hacked saves, modded games, or other exploits has officially been cordoned off in a dedicated cheater pool, confined to wallow with other unscrupulous reprobates,” Rockstar announced earlier today.

The cheater’s pool probably has a fairly hefty population as the publisher revealed its plans almost a month ago, and asked players to submit offenders for consideration.

As a reminder, you can dob in cheaters by sending an email to with the following information:

  • platform (PC, PS3 or Xbox 360)
  • cheater’s Gamertag / ID
  • description of the violation
  • if possible, concrete evidence, such as a video or a screenshot

If you’re in the pool and unsure why, you can also email the same address to plead your case. Good luck with that, hey.

    why can they still play?

    just ban them from XBL or PSN and be done with it.
    MS and Sony also dont take lightly with cheaters, at least i thought so
