Hello! My name is Nikoshka and I will be doing a guide to show some of the common hacks players use on Minecraft due to the fact that some players don't really understand what hacks are. Hopefully this post might get pinned so more people would see it and understand what hacking is and how to spot a hacker . @Mac First of all, what is hacking? Hacking is when you download or create a client which can give advantages towards yourself such as being able to fly to other islands in Eggwars when other players can't or being able to not take knockback meaning you can cross a bridge in Skywars without having to worry about getting shot off the bridge. On Cubecaft, hacking is NOT allowed and if you see a hacker in a game then you should immediately gather video evidence and report it on the forums in this section: https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/report-a-player.24/ Why do people hack? People hack because they believe it is "cool" or "fun". In all honesty, it just spoils the game for others. There are many other reasons players do hack but I won't go into this for more detail. Hacks that can you might see being used on CubeCraft Red = Hard to spot and record Orange = Not too hard to spot and record but it can sometimes be difficult Green = Easy to spot and record Italics = Game which hack used in ( [Red = Rarely] [Orange = Sometimes] [Green = Often] ) (Abbreviations used. [SW = Sky Wars, SG = Survival Games etc..] ) Movement Hacking Fly Hacking - This is basically where a hacker can fly to another island using his client. Here are some videos to show what it is. (SW, EW, Lobby, BW) For video, click HERE At the beginning of this video, the player is using fly hacks to get across to the other island. It gives an unfair advantage to him as he can fly but others cannot. Glide Hacking - Glide hacking is basically like being able to use an elytra and not take fall damage when you are gliding off a high place. For video, click HERE Spider Hacking - Spider hacking is when you can climb up walls without the use of any sort of ladder, just like a spider. (SW, PvP) For video, click HERE Speed Hacking - This is when you run faster than normal vanilla minecraft. (SW, EW, As, PvP, LI, BW, SG) For video, click HERE Bhops (Bunny Hops)/ Lowhops Hacking - This is where you jump faster/more often than you can with normal vanilla minecraft meaning you can move faster. (SW, EW, As, PvP, BW, SG) For video, click HERE Sneak Hack - This is when you sneak faster than normal. (SW, EW) For video, click HERE Jesus Hack - This is when you can move across water. (SG) For video, click HERE NoSlowdown- This is when you can move across water without slowing down an not needing enchanted boots. (SG) For video, click HERE Anti-Knockback Hacking If a player is using Anti-Knockback hacks then he cannot take knockback from anything. This means you won't be able to shoot this player off the bridge fight OR hit him off the edge of an island when you melee fighting the player on an island. Some clients also reduce the amount of knockback you take so it may be harder to spot the fact that the player is hacking. For video, click HERE As you can see, this player is not taking any knockback from my punch bow. This means they are hacking JUST TO NOTE: Lag is when you are frozen and you don't move and you are taking no knockback. Anti-knockback still means you jump up / move a little bit and down when you are hit, as shown in the video. Also, with lag, if the player suddenly then starts to move after being frozen and they start taking knockback then they aren't hacking. (SW, EW) Fast-Place Hacking This is basically when you place faster than normal, as shown in the video below: For video, click HERE (SW, EW) Kill Aura + Melee Combat Hacking This is easier to detect if you are in spectator mode. Kill aura is a lot more complicated to explain but there are five main aspects to detect if a player is using Kill Aura or not. 1) If he constantly keeps hitting armour stands or other entities - Animals, villagers, anything which is considered as an "entity". 2) Frequent head snaps - If he snaps his head like in the video below. He hits the closest player to him as shown in the video where he is AFK but tries to hit whoever is closest to him. 3) Reach - If he can reach further than normal minecraft punching reach. 4) Criticals (HACK on it's own but sometimes comes with KA) - If he makes critical hits when he isn't even jumping in the air. 5) Hitting while eating or in a menu - If the player is eating whilst hitting then that is Kill aura. If he is also looking in a chest (FOR EXAMPLE) whilst hitting then he is using Kill aura. For video, click HERE This player was AFK in the lobby with Kill Aura on. You can see that he is making frequent head snaps to try hit the player that is closest towards him. For another video, click HERE You can also see more videos of Kill Aura by youtubers who hack, such as xTurtle.. (SW, EW, As, PvP, BW, SG,LI) Fast Eat This is basically when you eat faster than normal, as shown in the video below: For video, click HERE At first I was eating without any hacks on and when I switched FastEat on, I immediately started to eat the potatoes rapidly. (HG, SW) Bow Hacking Aimbot - Very difficult to spot. You can spot this if the player is making snappy movements with his head when trying to shoot his target with a bow. (SW, EW) For video, click HERE Watch the snappy head movements when he tries to go for one target but aimbot switches to the other target. Fastbow - This is when you shoot arrows at a rapid speed. (Rarely seen) For video, click HERE Thank you for reading my thread and I hope you have learnt something about how to detect hackers . Of course, if you wish to find out more then you could download a hacked client and use them on a single player world to see what they do and how it is unfair when playing on multiplayer servers which don't allow hacking on them. This thread is not showing you how to hack and by reading this thread you must understand the consequences of getting BANNED if you hack. If you DO see a hacker using any one of these hacks then record them and report them over here: https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/report-a-player.24/ - Nikoshka Please comment on this thread or PM me if you think there should be any more hacks that I should add to this thread.
