Propnight: Patch 1.0.17 Implements BattlEye Anti-Cheat System

Propnight Steam

To prevent cheaters from ruining the game, developers at Fntastic Games have released Patch 1.0.17 for Propnight to implement the BattlEye anti-cheat system.

For those who do not know, BattlEye is a popular anti-cheat system used by some popular titles, such as Destiny 2 and Rainbow Six Siege. That said, while some people criticize its effectiveness in Rainbow Six Siege, for example, it still might be better compared to the game’s previous security mechanism, Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC).

EAC has a lot of issues of its own. For instance, some people have encountered a problem where the game would not launch at all. Others have also reported that some players were still able to use hacks even though EAC was in place. Hopefully, the shift to BattlEye would improve things somehow.

This update has brought various improvements as well. Some notable ones include voice commands for Killers and updated music playing on the radio on all maps, among other things.

Update Highlights

  • Removed the possibility of being pushed back while the Survivor was trying to wiggle out
  • Fixed that a Killer or a Survivor could get stuck after the Killer puts down the Survivor, or after the Survivor gets out of the Killer’s hands
