Max Payne 3 cheater's pool now live

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 maxpayne3.banhammer@rockstargames.com 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.
