If there’s one thing you don’t want to encounter in the cut-and-thrust world of sandbox zombie survival MMOs, it’s pesky hackers. Staying alive is hard enough as it is, without someone cheating their way to endless stacks of first aid and cans of beans.

Unfortunately, The War Z has seen some growing problems with hackers, so developer Hammerpoint is directing all efforts towards trying to lock them out.

In a forums post, Hammerpoint stated “As I’m sure all of you are aware, there’s been a lot of discussion lately surrounding the hackers. Over here we’ve been working round the clock on a solution.”

Bugs like item duplication and the ability to glitch onto roofs are also being addressed. Hammerpoint says it has fixed “Mossberg spawns” and suggests that item spawning should even out in the coming days (meaning you should find a better balance of food and water to weaponry).

As a result of the new focus on hackers, the introduction of Clans is now likely to be delayed until next week.
