Admin Abuse/ Hacking
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was playing on a server ( when my friend told me he was killed by a bandit near Prigo. I was located in Electro with my friend so we ran over to hopefully avenge him. While we were running over our other friend spawned in Prigo ran over to try to find them and while hiding in a bush over 100m away one of the admins runs out of the house turns directly towards him and kills him. While possible i highly doubt they knew he was there just by normal awareness.

At this point my spotter an I are climbing the large white mountain that over looks the area and to try to kill these guys while my two friends are attempting to re spawn nearby. As i get into position and am scoping out the area one of my dead friends re spawns in Prigo and runs over to play bait. Its at this point I see one of the admins in the house get shot and fall over dead. we are all quite confused as to how he died but we keep watching when my fresh spawn friend rushes the house. Once inside he sees around 20-30 protector cases scattered around the floor. He get one punch in before he gets killed.

I then see some movement in the house the guy is looking up the mountain at my spotter and me. So i fired i killed one of the admins when suddenly my freshspawn friend gets "Admin Kick (Hacking)". Then my spotter who hasn't fired a shot gets kicked as well and then i get kicked. We are now all banned from the server.

Personally I know this may seem like admin abuse but there are a few things here that stick out to me as hacking. One thing is how did they know m one friend is laying prone behind a bush watching the house? to come out turn directly at the him and just fire? (he was near the ocean the last place i would look for a threat.) Second, i was about 200m away up a mountain. how did he know me and my spotter were up there? third and honestly most damning thing i can deduce is how did they know to kick my spotter? yea the killed my fresh spawn friend and i got the one guy so i know they can view the kill logs but my spotter didnt shoot. i feel that the only way they could have known was with an ESP hack.

Also if you need more proof my friend recorded coming into the house and seeing all of these cases. he was the first guy killed and was unable to get back until we were all kicked. Ill gladly send it your way.

well if it is a private server, since the newest update, they receive logs about kills totally legal. If you got banned from their server (so it is private) they know exaxctly who killed them, and who they killed, so they banned you

You can't ban people on Private shards only private hives iirc. You can kick people. The only suspicious thing I read here is the 20+ protector cases. But they could be duping. Many bandits go hunting at the coast and are intimately familiar with the area so they could have known where to look. Thumbs down for me, many many people think they are getting killed by a hacker when intact they are not.

Hi Privat3Ry4n,

Thanks for sending in your feedback regarding this issue. If you were banned/kicked from a private server (as the guys mention) then they are in their right to do so according to the server hosting rules.

If it was not a private server, then you can always report abusive servers directly to the server hosts:

Fragnet: or submit a ticket to their abuse department

If you don't know which GSP the offending server is rented from, just send the report to all of them and they'll sort it out themselves.

  • Remember to include the IP and port numbers, the server name is not enough*

You find these numbers by highlighting the server in the server browser, then selecting 'Detail' at the lower right. If you can't remember which server you were playing on, you can find it under the 'History' tab.

For future reference regarding reporting of servers, please feel free to use the information in the following post from the DayZ forums:
