Call Me Hedless (Headless player in SWAT)

#1Devious_tkPosted 12/14/2012 3:46:10 AM(edited)
Just twenty minutes ago, I was playing SWAT and ended up a lobby with a player that had no head, as you can imagine he was hard to kill. We lost. This would happen to me after being awake for 24 hours.

I also added the film to my file share, so feel free to check it out. Gamertag is Devious tk. I also found it odd that Call Me Hedless was playing online with a silver account. Is there a free weekend that I'm not aware of?

This doesn't seem to be an isolated case.

while this is despicable in terms of him being a hacking, cheating douchebag, I would like to be able to play as a Spartan with just the undersuit, no plates. helmet needs to stay though.

I hope you don't mind, I posted this on the Xbox general board. I gave the credit to you too.

There's two videos of that guy Gov from the other topic. You can see how bad he is, missing shots like nobodies business, but if you search him on Halo Tracker, you can see his K/D over time has skyrocketed from barely 1 to nearly 2 over the past week (presumably when he started cheating).

I was skeptical at first, because a friend has had the head and armour-less lobby card before now. It seems to be a glitch in loading the card after changing your gear. But the videos have convinced me of some foul play going on.

Dunno how they're doing it and what exactly it does, but they're definitely harder to get a headshot on (if it's even possible). Might be edited hit boxes, or that the aim assist (the drag you get on your reticule when you move it over an enemy) is somehow associated with the armour (or at least the helmet) making it harder to get headshots. Or maybe it's just a case of messing with the opponents mind, causing them to play worse and not aim for the head.

I know it's a low thing to do, messing with the game like that... But holy hell, does it look cool.

I shot him right where his head should be and every time it passed straight through with no damage taken. My guess is that he nulled out his helmet(and some of his other armor), and assuming the hitboxes for each helmet are different, he wouldn't have one. It is genius, but evil.

I'm thinking this is accomplished by equipping DLC armor, then removing the DLC from your hard drive. Not certain though.
