What is Sharkmob’s stance on cheating and misconduct?

We take things seriously!

Sharkmob takes cheating and misconduct very seriously.

We have a team fully committed to go through all player created reports as well as an anti-cheat that is constantly learning and adapting to new ways of cheating.

It is a core value in Sharkmob to have fun and it is a value we want to express through all our games.
For everyone to have fun, we aim to ensure that we have a safe community with fair gameplay.

This means that Sharkmob has zero tolerance for cheating and toxic behavior.
Below is a quick guide to what is currently not acceptable.


What is considered cheating in Bloodhunt?
The list below is a guideline and provides a quick overview. However, the list is not limited to the cheats below – just because a cheat is not mentioned in the list, does not make it legal to use.

  • Using any 3rd party software to gain an unfair advantage
    • Aimbots and triggerbots
    • Artificial lag/lag switch
    • World-hacking
    • Wall hacking
    • External crosshair tools
  • Teaming / secret coteries
    • Teaming up in any type of solo match, by forming ANY secret alliance with any other solo players working together under any circumstances, be it for "good intentions" or with the intention to kill others except your secret alliance. The ramifications for such actions will range from a temporary to a permanent ban depending on the severity, or repeat offenses.
  • Rapid fire modifications
    • Modifying a controller or keyboard to gain the advantage of having a faster firing weapon than the standard.
  • Abusing exploits/bugs
    • Purposely using a bug or exploit in the game, to gain unfair advantage.
      • For example: There’s a bug that prevents you from taking damage by the red gas. Staying in the red gas until the game finish, would be abusing a bug.
  • Modifying game files in order to obtain an advantage
    • Players may modify the .ini or .json files, but only for the purpose of increasing framerate or making changes that can be made inside the game if Bloodhunt cannot be opened or when it is more convenient to do it this way (e.g. changing the language or lowering the quality of the graphics). .ini files may not be changed to gain an unfair, visual advantage (e.g. seeing something that will only be visible after this modification and that others playing the game as intended will not see).
      • For example, if buildings disappear so you can see players behind them or if you change the light settings outside of what the game normally allows.




  • Stream Sniping
    • Watching a streamer and connecting to the same lobby only to kill the streamer, by knowing the streamer’s location from watching the stream.
  • Profanity
    • Inappropriate usernames, curse words, or other uses of offensive language, chat room spam, being impolite, rude, culturally offensive, or similar actions that break the game rules.


How can I report another player for any of the violations above?

We have created a short guide that is broken down into 3 steps.

  • Before you report
  • Creating a report
  • What to include?

You can find this guide here: How can I report another player?

I was banned, but I am innocent – can I appeal against the ban?

No process is perfect - and we understand that sometimes anti-cheat software may show a false positive or sometimes, despite several reviews of a player report, the support team could make a wrong decision.

In these cases, we suggest you submit a request to our support team to appeal against the ban.

To make a good case, we always encourage you to provide as much evidence as possible to prove your innocence.

You can read more about how to create a ban appeal as well as what a good ban appeal should contain right here:
