Yesterday I got invaded by some guy I could not deal any damage to him at all. He didn't even attempt to dodge or block my attacks. I think he could be a cheater.

I understand that due to game mechanics and number of players, it's almost impossible to be invaded by the same player a second time, but I still want him to be punished.

How can I report cheating?

I'm playing on PC from Steam.

    Wiki says the following: "However, it is also possible to get invaded by a player that is of a lower soul level, but with much better gear (people transfer powerful gear to lower level characters just for this purpose)." Are you sure the guys was exactly cheating, or could it be explained by something like gear twinking? – Orc JMR Apr 14 '16 at 8:17
  • No, I'm not sure. I don't have any video of what happened. His gear really looked like some advanced stuff - set from knight with funny metal hat from trailer. But even in case of advanced gear I expect to deal some damage - like 1 or 10, but I did none at all - numbers with damage never appeared. Anyway, I'm in search for report system, where support guys will investigate case and make a decision. – arghtype Apr 14 '16 at 8:26

    Here's some advice for Souls 2 from the top of Google. steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=438608328 – Orc JMR Apr 14 '16 at 8:45
  • It will make sense if Steam's Report Violation works for DS3 the same way as for DS2! Thanks, please, post it as an answer. – arghtype Apr 14 '16 at 9:03

You can report a player on Steam.

To do this, open Steam overlay in-game (Shift+Tab by default), click "View Players" in the Friends box.

View Players

This will show you all players you've met in Steam games, ordered by time.
If you have already left the game, same list can be accessed from Steam client menu, View -> Players.

From the list, find the suspected cheater and navigate to their profile. You can report the player from there.

    How is this done in Big Picture mode? – seo Apr 26 '16 at 5:22
  • @seo I couldn't properly test (couldn't enter Big Picture Friends screen with a keyboard/mouse), but I guess it should be somewhere around Friends. If not, however, it is entirely possible that this functionality is missing from Big Picture, so you'd have to switch to windowed. – Orc JMR May 4 '16 at 10:59
