Nowadays, gaming has become pretty complicated with all the new hacks and cheats being introduced in games with each passing day. But, these are frowned upon by game developers and are considered a big infraction. Therefore, they take steps for repudiating the players that engage in the utilization of cheats and hacks.
As such, they have made many attempts towards discouraging cheaters and hackers. The HWID Ban is by far one of the most egregious and detrimental anti-cheat measures initiated by game developers. It has been a thorn in the side of gamers who aspire to use hacks in a game for quite a while now.
The HWID or Hardware ban is the most difficult one to overcome because it doesn’t only affect your IP Address but rather all of your PC’s components as well. These are the ones that evince certain and special identifiers and end up receiving most of the brunt of this ban. Game companies are constantly striving to concoct new and more intricate methods for dissuading players from using cheats.
The HWID Ban is one of the most ambitious and toughest of methods in this regard. This ban has caught many players red-handed during the last several years and banned their IP/MAC addresses, thereby soundly exiling them from their games.
The parts that get affected by an HWID ban include the Motherboard, SSD, HDD, MAC Address, IP Address, Router, MAC Address, etc. Many prominent games are using the HWID Ban as a means of banning players that dabble in the practice of cheats and hacks. Some of them are Warzone, Valorant, Fortnite, PUBG, etc. Needless to say, this ban is becoming more and more common so players should exercise caution when using hacks on a game.
Now, some of you might be experiencing some ambivalence and apprehension when it comes to HWID Bans and the possibility of overcoming it. While it may seem like an insurmountable task, you can however overcome and bypass an HWID Ban. We are here to guide you regarding this process and have elucidated the various steps involved in the process as follows for the sake of your convenience and information.
Before you start, let us remind you that while this process has proven to be effective in the majority of cases, meticulousness is still the key. You must staunchly and fastidiously adhere to these steps if you want to overcome an HWID Ban. So, let’s get on with it then:
Certain steps need to be followed if you are going to overcome an HWID Ban and they are explained as follows:
1. Uninstall the Game Completely:
The most critical of steps that you need to perform first is to remove the game completely from your PC’s hard drive. Don’t just uninstall the game but be thorough about it. Remove all lingering residual files on the game from your PC as well. You don’t want any file remaining on your PC that was originally connected to the HWID ban.
You need to uninstall the game from the PC and for that, you will have to use the Programs and Features option in the Control Panel. Execute the Uninstallation from there and then proceed with the removal of any residual files. You will likely find them in C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), C:\%localappdata%, C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local, C:\%userprofile%\Documents\, etc. Once you have removed all traces of shortcuts or other smaller files, you can then proceed to remove the files in the registry.
To do so, press R and the Windows Key and type “Regedit” into the box. Remove all game files from the registry by right-clicking on the desired files and clicking the “delete” option. You will mostly find these files in, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\, HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\, HKLM\Software\WOW6432Node\, etc.
2. Formatting Windows:
Now comes the hard part. You will have to wipe your Windows by formatting it. You will not be formatting quickly, no but rather consummately. You will have to delete all the data in the Windows and that is why we recommend that you make a backup of all necessary and important data. Once you are done copying, you can then proceed to format your Windows. You can go with the option of reinstalling your Windows and reformat your drive from the Installation Manager. We believe that this option works the best when it comes to performing sterile and thorough formatting of Windows.
2. Running VPN:
You will need a good VPN to get through this step. So, if you don’t have access to one, we suggest that you get it for this step. You will have to start the VPN and keep it on once the Windows has been reinstalled. This is imperative as you don’t want any prying eyes or anti-cheat scrutiny to befall your PC. The VPN makes for excellent camouflage in this case and will ensure that you get the job done without any predicament or obstacle. Remember, you are not to turn the VPN off under any circumstances during this stage.
3. Download an HWID Spoofer:
You will need what many consider to be the best weapon or countermeasure against the HWID Ban. The HWID Spoofer is a tool that alters the hardware identity of your PC and all of its components that bear specific hardware identities. This will ensure that no anti-cheat program or software placed within the game by the developers recognizes your PC or its components.
You will also have to be willing to spring for a good Spoofer in this regard as the better ones cost more. You don’t want to get a subpar one that can’t take the heat or perform the job that is expected of it. So, don’t be stingy and get the HWID Spoofer that can be effective and perform well beyond expectations.
4. Making a New Account:
All right now the bad news is that your previous account is busted irrevocably, end of the story. You now need a new one to proceed. So, if you have any platitudes to spout about sentimentalities or milestones achieved on the previous account; get over them. You are never going back to that account and it isn’t recoverable at all. You will have to log onto the account registration site of the concerned game and make a new one. This will be the account that will allow you to bypass the HWID ban and move forth with using your hacks and cheats with impunity and uninhibited abandon.
5. Disable the Game’s Service Running in the Background:
All games have their respective version of the service that runs in the background while the game is running. The Blizzard app and COD’s Battlenet for instance are examples of these programs. You will have to disable them manually through the Task manager and Startup programs. You can proceed to the next step once you have completed these steps.
6. Restart your Computer:
Now, after ensuring that you have performed all the aforementioned steps, you will have to restart your PC. Just make certain that you didn’t miss any part like leaving the VPN off or forgetting to enable the HWID Spoofer before you restart. The odds of the ban being lifted will be enhanced greatly if you stick to the plan before restarting your computer.
7. Inject the Hacks:
Once you have restarted your computer, you can now proceed to inject the hack into the game that you want.
8. Restart the HWID Spoofer:
The HWID Spoofer is your friend and now is the time that you to use it. Launch it up and wait till the process of spoofing is completed. Most spoofers entail a completion prompt or notification as well so you should wait till you receive one. Once that is done, you can move on to the next phase.
9. Restart the Game App:
Restart the game and its relative application now and proceed to the game with the hacks enabled. If all has gone per procedure, then you will face no difficulty and the HWID Ban will have been lifted. You can use your hacks to the fullest now and combat your opponents without having to worry about getting banned again.
10. Remain Cautious:
