I was hopping between random servers on Crime.Net looking for interesting heists. I happened upon a bank heist and joined in. Once we had drilled into the vault, I discovered that every deposit box was already open.

What could have caused this? Was I playing on a hacked server? I doubt it was an accident, since after completing that heist we went to Jewelry Store and all of the safes were open from the start of the mission.

  • It's very possible it was a bug. This game does some really weird stuff sometimes. Were they actually open, or were they visually open? Though the Jewelry Store thing is definitely odd...

  • Actually open. We walked in, filled up our bags, and left.

    Sounds like hackers to me

    Done quite a lot of heisting, but this never happened. Got to be some sort of hack.

  • I'm with 3ventic and 5pike on this one - never seen this happen, sounds like an exploit of some kind

Based on what you have described, you have found a hacker. However, I'm not able to find any videos of what you have described, exactly, however (most hackers focus on giving themselves infinite money and skill points so they become automatically good at the game).

This is a particularly weird case, since most of the hacks I see online affects one player only (the closest I can find to what you describe is instant opening of deposit boxes, safes, and vaults, by one player only). Perhaps the host somehow edited the map data, or something. It's hard to say.
