The presence of an anti cheat system in a multiplayer video game is a fundamental step to block cheaters, and American video game publisher Riot Games has been very stout on the idea. Their latest free to play tactical FPS Valorant recently implemented an ‘always on’ anti cheat system in the game, aiming to keep the number of cheats to a minimum level. Now, Riot is making improvements to the anti cheat system, and is reportedly hiring hackers for the job via a hidden message!

Back in April, Riot had announced a challenge to hackers to exploit find exploits in Valorant’s anti-cheating system, ‘Vanguard’, and also announced a reward of $100,000 for anyone who is able to find a weakness within the multiplayer FPS.

“Protected by packman, a Riot Games product. Developed with <3 by the Anti-Cheat team. We’re always hiring talented individuals.”

“If you’ve found this message, we implore you to take a look at our jobs page and see if anything catches your interest:”

The message was hidden in a file named Stubs.all, found within the anti hacking system. Its not an easy to reverse engineer and get to the job offer, so those who are able to will fit perfectly for the job at hand.

It was later reported that Riot has actually acknowledged the message, as an employee confirmed that they are hiring individuals who can exploit such systems and create cheats for a video game as a hobby, and will find an interesting career choice with the publisher.

Starting as a closed beta on 7th April, Valorant was fully released on Microsoft Windows on June 2. The beta, which was played by nearly 3 million players, gathered a staggering 470 million viewing hours on the popular streaming platform Twitch.
