Activision, Ubisoft And Bungie Opposing Use of keyboard and Mouse On Console

Expert Verified By

Trio Started Crackdown Against Third Party Attachments

Cheating in a ranked game is one of the worst experiences for gamers; however, anti-cheat systems are usually adequate. But you can still have a competitive advantage using a mouse and keyboard with a console.

This is quite common and counts as cheating. Activision, Ubisoft, and Bungie have announced that they will toughen their measures and be wholly opposed to ending this type of player.

Faced with this problem, the Call of Duty RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team announced their new update earlier this month. The anti-Cheat system can detect third-party hardware devices that alter the Call of Duty experience and ban these players.

Player Using 3rd Party Device To Use Mouse Keyboard

Ubisoft announced a similar system; however, rather than expelling like activation, it will increase input lag and latency if they detect the use of a mouse and keyboard instead of a controller. 

Bungie also joins Activision and Ubisoft as they published their position against using third-party peripherals this week. In this case, the affected game is Destiny 2, where players use the mouse and keyboard along with the aiming aids that we find on the console to take advantage.

One of many Devices To Connect the Mouse Keyboard With the Console

Like Activision and Ubisoft, Bungie also mentions that it is against using devices such as the Cronus Zen or MAX, considering that using them is cheating. The company argues that it is in favor of the use of external assistive devices, especially for those players who cannot use the standard controller.

Here we can give examples of players with some disability or problem, but this is not the case. It has been observed that using these devices, in the end, is to win games more easily.

Bungie will join the other two developers and impose measures to end its use. Among these, there will be prohibitions, temporary suspensions, and expulsions.

They indicate these devices allow PvP rank scaling much faster than a standard player. Unlike Activision and Ubisoft, Bugnie has not yet used any measures against cheating, but they are expected to be announced soon.
