Arc System Works Releases Official Statement On Guilty Gear Strive Hack Exploit, Says They Are Investigating Urgently










Guilty Gear Strive players have been struggling with an exploit that hackers are reportedly using to render the game unplayable. Last week, the issues came to a head when streamers and specifically targeted players spoke about how they were affected.





Arc System Works made an official statement on the matter early this morning. The company behind Guilty Gear stated that they are investigating the situation with full urgency and seriousness.









“Note on the recent exploit attacks in Guilty Gear -Strive-” wrote the game’s official Twitter account. Accompanying the tweet was an image that provided the statement that begins by assuring fans that ArcSys is aware of the exploit.


“We have become aware of a number of attacks from an exploit targeting players in the game, where the exploit has been reported to cause unwanted player messages, game freezes and crashes,” the statement begins. After informing the public that the company is moving towards a quick fix, they recommend that players affected by these attacks exit the online game modes and let their support team know what happened immediately.


ArcSys also notes that if you are affected by this exploit and use external programs or tools (such as mods) for Guilty Gear Strive, it may affect how quickly their support team can identify your problems and fix them. It’s probably a good idea to disable any mods you have for the game until the exploit is patched.

The main use of this exploit is to instantly freeze the game for both players involved in the match. To get out of the freeze, players must perform a hard reset.


Those using this exploit target players’ R-codes and by manipulating it can cause unwanted behavior. According to pro gamer Moist|Hotashi, hacking the R code can also result in a memory leak in the Strive client that slows down the game so much that it severely reduces the frame rate, making it unplayable even in training mode.


Others have reported that hackers are using other players’ R codes to impersonate them and send messages, opening the door for said players to be banned.


The best way for you to avoid being affected by the exploit is to not engage in any of Guilty Gear Strive’s online modes until it is fully patched. Your safest bet right now is to play the game in offline mode until an update arrives.
