As of 12/12/18:
The scoring event for spawn used to earn points will be disabled today so it will no longer be possible to attain such a high number of points. As such this thread is EoL.

Feel free to message me with any queries related to the topic.


Original Post from the thread creator:
F8rge confirmed that the fix will be in a future update. So we really have to deal with this until you guys come back in mid January

  • In the last few days I’ve been more and more frequently been getting in matches with players blatantly hacking. Usually it’s the same thing of gaining about 100+ score per second till the end of the match, ending with upwards of 150,000 score. I’ve also seen one who circumvented the hero death lockout by getting Rey in about 30 seconds, dying, immediately returning as Rey as many times as they wanted with instant priority over other players. I saw this pretty well being placed in their squad.
    Is there anything being done about this? It’s pretty infuriating to get a cheat or 3 in every other match. The score and BP is meaningless, but locking players out of what they want to play as is not ok. They obviously get boatloads of hate given their PSN accounts are always set to private to block messages.

  • I just saw the same thing in 4 different GA matches on Xbox One, top 3 players had a score of 200,000 - 280,000. ( with 0 to 10 kills i might add )

    Don't know if its a glitch or Hacking
  • I saw exactly the same thing on PS4 Saturday night. Top 3 or 4 players with 150,000+ pts each. I didn't pay attention to what they were doing, but I noticed it for a few games before quitting the lobby.

    Thanks that’s something I forgot to mention is the tiny kill count. Almost always 0-10
    I haven’t seen any glitches promoted that do this so far, I’d have to assume it’s hacking. Especially with the way they circumvent the hero system and take auto priority over players. Pretty sad it’s on Xbox too.

  • I've had this issue on PS4 as well, someone on Kamino got over 200k score points when playing as a hero with under 10 elims. Could be something to do with players spawning on them but really not sure if it's a bug or an actual hack. Devs need to be informed

  • And here I was going to report with a video, but glad this is being noticed. I saw a couple people doing this tonight, 500,000 score.
    Don't click unless you want to know the truth....
  • Its not a hack. I've been trying to recreate it, but no luck thus far. It has something to do with spawns.

    Specifically spawns on heroes?

    Yeah sorry lmao jk
  • On Yavin 4 I just saw a person get 97,000 BP with only 15 kills. Last night saw another person get 70k with about the same amount of kills on Geonosis.
    Has anyone else seen these kind of BP numbers in GA?
    A new way to cheese bp, or just a new bug?
  • PC? Probably hacks

  • I saw this too on PS4. I played 2 rounds of GA on Geonosis and two guys on my team got over 100K score both as the Republic and as the Separatists. I might have a screenshot I can post later.
  • It’s a glitch that is unfortunately becoming known

    Haven’t seen big numbers like that on PS4 but I believe you.
  • I saw it once this week on PS4. It is the only time since December of last year.

    What's the glitch?

  • Apparently “Devs are aware”
  • Well now I know....not surprising the player I messaged did not reply to my question if they were exploiting a glitch....been seeing 150 plus scores in Strike

    .... If you glitch it appropriately, the menu to choose which squad mate you want to spawn on stays up after you've spawned in ...

    I hate when this happens. I respawn to get out of it. Only happens to me in Strike though.
  • Whatever the case is it broke the spawn of the entire server I was just in. Nobody could spawn and the guys were warping all over the map
  • It is quite funny how many things they break in this game

    It isn't, this is replicated on Xbox as well. It is a glitch with spawn system.

    On Xbox hacking is not possible, so it must be the glitch but on PC you encounter hackers a lot so it could be.

    Problem is the people benefiting aren't the ones creating/exploiting the glitch. It's probable that they have a friend helping them, sure. But it could just as easily be you and me on a squad, I accidentally glitch and think it would be neighborly of me to make sure you get an awesome score, even though you have no control over what I'm doing.

    Hope the devs fix it by the December update, just ridiculous.

    is this the thing where it wont let me spawn on anyone and the screen stays up though I am not on the field yet? I had something similar a few times where I was clicking to spawn on someone but the game didnt let. I could follow their view but the spawn screen was still up. after multiple attempts in just had to hit start and respawn to get out of it.

    It happened to me last night as well on Jakku - someone ended the game on 402,000 score - I have the screenshot - and it was on PS4

    Apparently 3 players are required for the glitch to work (in the same squad)
    But it means that 3 players on your team are doing absolutely nothing (subsequently we lost the match) and I got robbed of a higher place on the podium. It is game breaking and annoying as hell in GA - must be fixed ASAP. Like within a couple days!!!
  • I have yet to a DEV response to this issue. Here or on reddit or anywhere.

    All you gotta do is on a,map with a vehicle click said vehicle & immediately click specialist boom spawn glitch

    So you pick to spawn say for example, an ATST then you switch to a trooper then spawn on a squad mate then it spams them with spawn bps?

    Not sure how that breaks the game code.

    More like a speeder. Yes click on it & you gotta click on the specialist quick like really quick & you'll forever be in the spawn menu & can give your mate points
  • Normal screenshot not working so I've posted the attached image
  • How do you test the game for something like this? Seen some weird stuff since Geonosis dropped.
  • I see this once per game at least.

    While ive used it to get my heavy up in strike id never deny someone a hero for the entire game by not playing and exploiting this.

    Its annoying when theyre on your team and you lose like 3 people from the match.

    But ultimately anyone with a lvl 40 hero with that method will still be ****. All the purple star cards in the galaxy cant help alot of people who play heros.

    So ill take killing a level 40 hero that plays like a lvl 1 hero every day.
  • Everyone report every battle point glitch players, the legit top person on the team got 13k, that shows how much these people are getting. These people are also using it to hog heroes.
  • Yeah I saw a guy with 397k BP today. I was in his squad and the next thing I knew I had 10k BP on phase 1. They must have spawned on ne or sonethibg.
  • Was this on pc?

    Sorry for the typo before, stupid phone. No, it was ps4.
  • Pardon my navity but how exactly does that benefit them?
  • I saw it more than once today. Saw like 3 guys have at least 50k+more than anyone else a couple of games, then EORMM kicked in.
  • Saw someone with 145k score and another guy with over 200k on my team as well. So one person each.

    Your name looks familiar I think I was playing with you last night/morning
  • Pardon my navity but how exactly does that benefit them?

    I'm not sure exactly what they are doing, but maybe mashing buttons or something and I benefited somehow by being in their squad.

    It benefits them because they get heaps of score and XP for their troopers/heroes and get a ton of credits for getting a high score without doing anything.
