Psyonix unleashes ‘banwave’ against the Rocket League bot menace

A few weeks ago we reported on a new trend in Rocket League: A bot that had been built for fun and learning, Nexto, had been reconfigured by bad actors and used in widespread cheating (opens in new tab). Player clips of the bots in action abound, and all show a preternatural command of the ball, as well as a suspicious tendency to stay on the ground most of the time.

At the time, Psyonix told us it was “actively investigating solutions” and now it looks like Nexto’s time is up. In an update posted to the Rocket League subreddit, the studio posted a statement (opens in new tab) acknowledging that this was “a very active topic” around the community, and what it’s done about it.
