PlanetSide 2 beta play is currently ongoing, and developer Sony Online Entertainment has issued a warning shot to aimbot hackers, threatening a banhammer attack if the nonsense doesn’t stop.

PCGames N reports that PlanetSide 2 has been hit by aimbot hackers, and that the developer is keen to put an end to it.

Speaking with the site, SOE’s senior public relations manager Taina Rodriguez said, “We are aware of the issue. SOE takes player use of in-game cheats very seriously. Players who use cheats ruin the gameplay experience for the entire community and SOE will continue to be extremely aggressive in detecting and banning players who use cheats.”
