Speed Hacks

I have seen a lot of players moving a bit faster than normal without buffs. If I have superspeed, a necro outruns me. If I use shadowstep and shortbow 5, 5, 5 (with swiftness)... a guardian hawks me down.
Some players without signets or buffs (non-wars or rangers) seems to be moving faster than 25% speed buff.

Its not always a max out warp around the map buff, just nough so you cant keep up with them.

Am I crazy, or is this a thing?

    Its a thing, and its more useful than flat out warping because its harder to detect. Just report them when you catch someone doing it. As soon as Anet finds the cause and patches it, expect a wave of bans

    Eyyyy I unlocked signatures

  • I am pretty sure I just saw exactly that happening! This person consistently went into stealth and appeared again miles away. Unfortunately, I am always hopelessly overwhelmed in sPvP so I didn't get the chance to remember the account name. :/

    without buffs but in combat and still faster than you moving forward with said buffs or with leaps n whatnot could b spammin leaps too
    in stealth its probably just shadowsteps n blinks
    but if they have swiftness and you just didnt notice it, speed runes exist to allow them to b fast
    if they're really just walking across half the map with no skills or buffs in two miliseconds then yeah report asap

    I love that whenever I record such events and send it on support they ask me to use only the Report option in-game while there is no option in the Report drop-down menu to report hackers...

    1. This thread was "brought back to life with a resurrection signet".
    2. When I posted the original, it was about 9 months before that rune got boosted to 66%.

    There are hackers in spvp, still not banned and still no repercussions. I havent experienced hacks in spvp in a while but the hackers are still playing.
