I asked this question earlier and the answers informed me of cheating on the 360!

I was doing some PVP in the Luna Belltower last night and I was completely baffled. Every time I hit this person, I lost a quarter of my health to what looked like lightning. I got a backstab, and died from it.

This is kind of a big question, so I'll break it up into parts.

  1. What benefits can this confer to the cheater? This would be useful to know for the next part.

  2. How can a legitimate player counter this? Is it possible to defeat these people, or is it just better to try and get as close to a bonfire as possible to minimize losses?


  • You should invite @5Pike to this question, as he was the one to make the claim on your other thread that cheating is possible on the 360.

    Number 4 is explicitly off-topic; we don't handle questions about finding information from devs. The rest...is going to be iffy. Cheating in multiplayer is something we don't help with, but perhaps we can help with remedies to said cheating.

  • For #4 you would be better off looking at their official forums. If you do not find a post that matches your experience, then you can be the one to mention it.

Cheaters can be handled by leaving That's all you can do, save your game and leave

Report them on Xbox, file a complaint and give them bad player rep File a complaint - Xbox actually have to look into these but the user will have to have several complaints for action to be taken(by different users for the same reason.)

Bad player rep - Starts on their Xbox profile decrease and they get connected to other players who have rep like they do, this also stops them finding you in matchmaking. (This apply's globally, not just to the Dark Souls 2.)

Try not let them get to you that's the main thing, if you get annoyed then the modifier has done what he wanted to do.

Benefit to the modifier is, he gets to have power over you, because basically you are powerless to them, this is what drives them.
