If you've been cheating in Battlefield 3 then you're in for a rude awakening.

If you're one of the "hundreds of offending" Battlefield 3 cheaters then don't expect to hop online for a quick game this evening. Chances are your account has been blocked and all your statistics with it.

EA has said it has "zero tolerance" for those exploiting the game, and is "determined to punish the players who play without integrity".

Unfortunately, despite EA's hard-line, cheating in Battlefield 3 is unlikely to stop until the publisher patches a glitch which allows Engineers to scoop up thousands of points in a single game. See, this is why we can't have nice things.
