Radio 1’s Newsbeat is reporting that gamers using cheats to gain XP (experience points) in Red Dead Redemption will be banned from playing the online multiplayer game. Rockstar Games announced the move on August 24th, after receiving complaints from many players.

Rockstar are claiming that any player who cheats to gain XP is breaking their code of conduct, and will be banned indefinitely from the online multiplayer. A statement on their website read: “This will not apply to those people who simply took advantage of temporary exploits to rapidly grind up XP a few weeks ago.” Those found guilty of cheating will also be removed from the game’s leaderboards.
