    Anyone else out there experience hackers? I was just on a server where a guy was using an aimbot. It was incredibly obvious too like I would spawn and the guy would start shooting me from across the map. He ended up with a score of 11-0 in the first 30 seconds of a rush map when the next highest score on his team had 1-0. Can anyone recommend any good servers on the PC where this kind of thing doesn't happen? I only have one favorite server but it's down like half the time I check.

    Are you making sure that the server has punkbuster enabled?

    @SeriouslyNow: Does that mean you should check or uncheck the box in the server browser? I've left it unchecked so far.

    This, I'm pretty sure it would take a lot more time for hackers to get passed Punkbuster.

    @Leptok: Haha yeah I see that so much, I always avoid joining squads with those people because I think they're rank boosting or something.

    @ Leptok, yeah it happened to me too, it's a bug.. a random bug. I even had it happen to me. but as for hackers i have yet to encounter any, make sure you click on punkbuster enabled servers to make sure.

    Yes. Make sure the servers are punkbuster enabled.

    I've experienced this once in BC2. I tend to uncheck PB because there are aren't always hardcore conquest games with more than 27 players but less than 32 players and under 100 browser ping using PB.
     
    @Alberto777: @Dark_Jon:@Ryax:@The_Laughing_Man:
    The rank where the icon goes nuts is only rank 10. It's not a random bug since you never see a rank 10 user on the scoreboard or squad screen without it flipping out and scrolling through all the icons. There's no reason to avoid it. That's just silly.

    I saw my first one last night.  Standing in the middle of nowhere doing full 180 degree turns and opening full automatic on people there was no way he could have seen that fast.  Luckily, I know the admins of the server I play on.
