Invincibility in New World; Devs Work to Remove Malicious Exploit

New World players started to use a specific exploit during company wars. It enables them to become temporarily immortal.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  • Players have found a way to gain temporary invincibility in New World;
  • They started using it during wars with other companies;
  • The developers of the game are working on a solution to the problem.

New World continues to enjoy immense popularity, which also brings some specific problems to the title, which are no longer limited to problems with servers. Some time ago players began to use the automatic ban system for their own purposes. Now they found a way to become invincible during PvP fights.

As you can expect, this doesn't have a positive impact on gameplay during company wars. Some players started to use a simple exploit, which enables them become temporarily invinvible. While using this tactic it is impossible to move or use any skills. However, standing still is enough to hold key points on the map during a clash with another company.

This became more common during wars, so the problem was quickly reported to the developers at Amazon Games. We didn't have to wait long for an answer to be provided on the official forum by one of the community managers.

"Thank you for reporting this issue, I want to confirm the team is aware and investigating.

Our top priority with any bugs or exploits that come up is to solve the problem as quickly as possible. If there are folks abusing a bug/exploit we will make sure they are handled by moderation."

Unfortunately, this was the only response from Amazon Games in the thread regarding the issue in question, s it's unclear how long it will take for it to be resolved. For some members of the community, however, the problem has become so acute that they have called for a temporary ban on company wars. Among these people were also well-known creators such as Gothalion.

Although the exploit remains present in the game and can be used easily, it is better not to use it. According to the moderator's warning on the forums it can mean a penalty, most likely in the form of a ban.
