Hello everyone,

I am going to teach you how to respond to the infamous "BoutCheetah Hacker" since many of the players have been responding to them in the worst ways possible.

Before we start, it is important that you learn how to take a screenshot which you can learn from this nifty guide right here made by our very own KillerPig: http://boutcheetah.zylongaming.com/index.php?topic=27904.0

Taking screenshots is a very important step to reporting hackers as it is the most trustworthy proof you can provide.  On most occasions you must provide proof before a player is banned or else the player that was reported could have been falsely accused.  If you do not have proof provided you must have a good enough reason for not taking screenshots or else your report could be ignored.

Now that you learned the importance of taking a screenshot we will continue with the guide.

#1: Entering the room
Remember this, the Hacker's room is his territory.  Treat this territory as if you are going into a Lion's Den as it is extremely dangerous and you are vulnerable to getting banned.  Proceed with caution when entering one. When you enter a Hacker's room there are many signs of it being a Hack room such as....

-A low level doing level 239.
-The name "Hack" is in the room.
-S/He is advertising hacks in the room itself.

Here is an example of a hack room.

-A very obvious player placing "hack" in the room.
(click to show/hide)

-A not so obvious player just strategically placing the {h} tag instead of saying "hacks" to hide his hacker ways.
(click to show/hide)

However, just taking a picture of the hacker's room is not enough sometimes as it could be a troll just trying to confuse you.

Example:
(click to show/hide)

In that case, we go to our next step... Playing with the Hacker.

#2: Playing with the Hacker.

This is a dangerous process as you can get banned for hack leeching even though you are trying to be a good player by trying to report the hacker.
However, this can be easily avoided if you follow certain precautions.
One of these precautions is to exit the room before you finish the game.  This is possible because of a simple command that will take you out of the room before you receive the EXP.  
This command is called the "exit" command.  You use the command by typing @exit, (@ being a combination of shift + 2 and exit being the letters e-x-i-t in that order) in the chatbox.  Once you press enter you will immediately be ejected from the room without worries of getting banned.

Example:
(click to show/hide)

Another precaution to avoid getting banned is noticing if a staff member is in the room.
If a staff member is in the room then you know it's okay to just leave and that the staff member will resolve this.  
However, if you believe that the hacker won't play in a game with a staff member then you can use the exit precaution to avoid getting banned when playing.  

Example:
(click to show/hide)

#3: Taking pictures of the right things.

This step is of the utmost importance because if you take a picture of a hacker that's just standing.. He most likely will not get banned.  You want to watch out for the common signs of a hacker...
-Infinite HP
-Extremely Fast Speed
-1 Hit Kills
-One Shot Kills

If you see these actions occurring, make sure to take pictures because it shows proof that he is hacking and that it's not just a player messing around in level 239.

Examples:
-Gun Hacking
(click to show/hide)

-HP Hacking
(click to show/hide)

Now that you have your pictures we can continue on to Step #4 which is "Reporting the Hacker"

#4: Reporting the Hacker
First off, congratulations on getting this far in the guide, we will now talk about getting the Hacker banned.

Remember that guide at the beginning of this guide that talked about screenshots? If so, then that means you probably have taken many pictures that show clear signs of the Hacker hacking.  

On the forums there is a section called "Report a Rule Breaker".  In this section you can report any rule breakers you wish as long as you have proof.  If the staff feel like it is sufficient proof to take action we will talk to the player or ban him depending on how serious the rule broken is.

Remember to post the user's ingame name, the rule that he broke, and your proof in the thread that you make in the section.

Finally I just have to say that if you hack or hack leech in a game you will get banned almost immediately and your membership/items bought in game will not be refunded so be careful when you think about hacking/hack leeching.  One single game isn't worth getting banned, so don't do it.

Special thanks to Mod Angrod and Tzeshuan for allowing me to take ridiculous screenshots of them.

Also if you have suggestions to the guide just post them below and I'll try to edit them in.

Really great guide. Only thing i would change is that u said u something like u can only report rulebreakers if you have proof. Thats not exactly true. You can still report a hacker without proof and an admin can check the logs for anything suspicious. So just because you didnt get any screenshots or any other proof doesnt mean you should not report the player.

True but the Admin's can't check the logs every time so they should have proof nonetheless unless they have a good enough reason for not taking screenshots.  I'll edit the thread with this bit of information, thanks Cooky.

Thanks Selene, I completely forgot about that.

Just reading some old topics but this one might need to be a little edited since you can't use @exit anymore (it became very obvious how to leave but anyways)

And i would like to add 1 thing where i dissagree at and i simply don't do. I never leave the room when a hacker plays. I want to make a screenshot at the end including the time and kills. I actually find that the best proof instead of a weird as picture where u see some1 hitting some1 else but its not completely correct. I might get the xp but idc about that. I am already highest lvl and of leeching 1 game to evide proof in like once a week or w/e isnt that bad ... otherwise i would have gt banned for the 8-9 times i hack leeched when i reported some1 i guess.

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll edit it right now.

It's not entirely necessary to have the win screen as evidence, like I said in the guide a person 1 hit killing a mob is just as good as long as you specify who the hacker is.
However, if you like staying till the end of the map I would recommend using an alternate account dedicated to finding hackers.

Where do i go to report a hacker? I just started playing today and a 172 surge by name "Lodos" took me and my brother through the lvl 256 and was 1 hitting everything. We left the room immediately and dont want to risk getting banned for leeching.
