Developers of an auto-aim, machine-learning cheat tool have halted development and taken down their website “at the request of Activision.” This is according to a message posted to the User Vision (the developer in question) website. One developer, who goes by USER101 promises the group ““will no longer be developing or providing access to software that could be used to exploit [Activision]‘s games. My intent was never to do anything illegal.”
User Vision’s software used to offer far more basic functions like “recoil adjustments” and a “trigger bot” that automatically shoots when an enemy enters the crosshairs. However, last week was the breaking point. User Vision started promoting a future version that would provide “full auto-aim [and] full auto-shots” on any game for PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.
This auto-aim cheat was designed to work without any changes to the hardware or software; and instead using a capture card, machine-leaning algorithms, and a PC.
User Vision also added in their statement that their technology has other benefits, but despite this it won’t be further developed.
“This type of technology [has] other actual assistive benefits; for example, by pointing a webcam at yourself, you could control movement without the use of limbs. Unfortunately, because of its potential negative impact, I will not be developing it further.”
User Vision claims that its statement was not required, but since revealing its software the User Vision Discord and YouTube channels have been taken down. All of the promotional videos showing the tool being used were also taken offline.
This is far from the first time Activision has taken up arms against developers of these cheat engines. Last year, Activision filed a lawsuit against CxCheats to protect Call of Duty: Warzone. However, cheating has still been a persistent issue in Warzone and Raven Software continues to ban offenders.
