    From time to time i run into players, that killl my Infiltrator with like 5 hits from their neutron assault rifle, or otherwise their Titan is still standing after 7-8 hits from my path blaster.

    Only explanation for me is, that they modified their damage output an health.

    But how is that possible?
    I'm on PS3.
    Does anyone know?
    Do they connect their PS with their PC, or what?

    Aside from the usual:

    -Latency of Peer 2 peer
    -Their modified weapon builds present in the game.

    It's incredibly hard now to modify PS3 games for a variety of reasons. Connecting your PS3 to PC isn't "hacking." If they did manage to do it I don't know why they would spend their time messing with FoC when they have much larger games to fry.

    Probably just an off game.

    What level were they? A titan that's maxed out can take a guy out with two hits of whirlwind and they can really take a pounding from infiltrator weapons.

    They're usually level 25 but i'm not the worst player myself and know what
    classes can do.

    That Titan was in robot form, no recharger, no energon cube nearby.
    Usually that takes 5 hits from the path blaster.
    He survived one time 7 and another time 8 hits...

    I'm not sure how they do it either but I know consoles CAN be hacked.

    I've run across Titans without the health upgrade who I'll unload on with MY Titan... goo-gun, scrapmaker, whatever - after I EMPTY the weapon at them, they casually just whirlwind and kill me. And that's not like DURING my attack, with the "take less damage during a whirlwind" gimmick. Doesn't happen often but it HAS happened. I know the Titans can take a beating, but not like that. Something was fishy there.

    That reminds me... I still haven't tried replicating the ability swap glitch in this game.

    I play on the eggsbox and i've been taken out as a titan in just a couple of hits by infiltrators. I always just chalked it up to them being higher level with better stuff though. I'm getting up in level though and at 23 as a titan it still happens a bit but it might just be my skill. I don't bunny hop a lot.

    Sometimes it's just lag, and your shots aren't registering. In addition, you could be getting fired at by multiple opponents. I'll score hits from across the board sometimes and get an assist to someone that kills them up close. But, if you want to take players out quicker the head shot is the way to go. I really doubt anyone is hacking the console.

    Was he using the flak shield? One of the enhancements on that converts damage to health.

    You'l probably find that most of these 'Hackers' aren't hackers. The games multiplayer is just really bad. And stupid.

    Or people are just better then you at multiplayer.

    People might just be getting you in the head sometimes this will give more damage.

    Because hacking is extremely easy to learn.
    Most hackers are some of the worst players around and without their hacks they are nothing and they know it.
    It's not bad but it is stupid because it doesn't take a lot of skills to master the gameplay.
    Really, FOC is basically MW3 with Transformers.

    But I can look past the easy gameplay because it is whether you like it or not, this is the best Transformers game we have ever got.
    I do hope in the future we can have gameplay that does more then what we have at the moment.

    They are not too far apart.
    I mean, HMS is trying to balance the game but they keep digging the balancing issues in to a deeper hole and to be honest.... It should of been fixed when the game was released, the demo should of been where they fix up the issues.

    Well, considering that CoD multiplayer is absolute BS (I've played it before people say I'm bad, which I'm not) that proves my point.
    I'm not even bad at this game, the multiplayer is just unbalanced, broken and generally really bad for anyone who isn't a biased transformers fan. I mean really, what they heck were they thinking when they put in a deployable shield that your opponent can't shoot through but the deployer can. That is the complete opposite of balanced.
    Honestly though, whilst playing WFC and FoC I've never once encountered one of these so called hackers. It reminds of when I'm playing Halo and people accuse me of using an aimbot when I no scope them continuously...
    Also, the Armada tranformers game is still the best. Damn I love that game.

    In the head "sometimes" is fine for me. I killed a lot of others with a few shots of my Subsonic Repeater to the head myself.

    But that scientist always killed me with 5-6 hits from his Assault Rifle...

    Oh, and the titans:
    One was shooting at a teammate of mine, so I shot him in the back.
    A full clip of the Subsonic Repeater AND meleed him (= death to every titan),
    he turns around an one-shots me with his slime cannon....

    If they were not cheating, the MP has severe problems!!!!
