Henderson: Seller cheatw to Battlefield 2042 It is crashing its services in this game and it is not by anti-cheat merit. It turns out that the game’s poor performance prevents cheats from working properly (XD).
Alleged hacker with the nickname Panfyero: We stop selling cheats to BF 2042 in our store. All subscriptions will expire as usual without any renewals or availability. You can still use cheats for now. Subscribers with a Lifetime subscription can redeem it for an equivalent subscription in any Call of Duty title. The reasons for this decision are performance issues in the game [Battlefield 2042 dop. red.]that negatively affect the proper functioning of cheats, and the fact that most people do not use their subscription anyway when the game is already dying.
