Electronic Arts has decided to ban "hundreds" of Battlefield 3 gamers who have been cheating from the game's online modes.
The company took to Twitter to say that it has wiped the stats of accounts that have been found to be "boosting" or using "exploits."
The publisher wrote: "This week we've banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting."
A glitch in the game enables people to earn tens of thousands of points as an engineer by misusing the repair tool, although EA has promised to issue a patch addressing this issue.
EA then sent out further Tweets explaining that it has a "zero tolerance" policy on "players who play without integrity", and encouraged users to report accounts that violated the laws of the game.
Battlefield 3 is available on XBox 360, PS3 and PC.
Classic first person shooters...
