Infamous Dark Souls Hacker Is Now in Elden Ring, Says He Wants to Be Caught
An infamous hacker invades Elden Ring players and softly bans them due to sports.
Malcolm Reynolds, who has been hacking FromSoftware games since Dark Souls 3. Is invading worlds before killing players with hacked, nearly invincible spells. However, overwhelming power is not a problem. Because It is reported by Kotaku. These spells also add “illegal” items to the defending player’s inventory. That was only meant to be used during the development process. When the defeated player comes back to life. Elden Ring detects they have these illegal items and soft-locks them. Meaning they can only play online with other cheaters in the future.
Reynolds said he’s forcing players to leave for a digital link to claim FromSoftware. After telling Kotaku that he wants to be caught, he refers to himself as a “necessary evil” that a developer should use as a lesson to implement better anti-cheat software.
However, despite claiming to be a noble cause,
Reynolds uploaded a YouTube video about his scams, murders, and soft bans when he played pranks on his victims. If Reynolds invades the game, it’s best, according to Dark Souls 3 Reddit post six years ago, disable or close the software or commit suicide so as not to be killed by it. It’s no surprise that Reynolds has resurfaced given his history with other FromSoftware games and the huge popularity of Elden Ring. It’s proven to be some sort of cultural phenomenon: crazy ads, a Twitch streamer’s chat playing while sweeping, and someone using a Ring Fit Nintendo Switch controller to take down a boss. He even has his own candy.
