Stranger things are happening in Elden Ring multiplayer. If a few weeks ago we talked about how hackers were destroying their opponents’ games, today we have something much more bizarre. And it is that pick up a certain object it can isolate you online.
Inside the Elden Ring there is an item that cannot be obtained by playing normally called Deathbed Smalls. This is a set of underwear that has to do with Fia, consort of the deceased and that From decided do not include in the game. Total, as I said, it can not be obtained by playing normally, but it can be obtained through hacks, and that is where this problem begins.
If you go online, other players may drop items on the ground for you to pick up, and some seem to have worse intentions than others. Some hackers are making their session partners pick up the aforementioned underwear, making the cheat detection system of the game, Easy Anti-Cheat, triggers.
The consequences of this is not as bad as it might seem, but it can cause problems if you want to play with your friends. Far from banning you from online as such, what it does is exclude you of the online experience of all players except those who have also been detected as cheaters. Bad, yes, but it could be worse. Also, if you email Bandai Namco customer support and explain exactly what happened, they will most likely revert these changes.
Of course, if, after this, it happens again, the punishment will be permanent unless you delete your game. Obviously, this will leave you without your character, which is not ideal. For now, it is recommended that don’t pick up no object that gives you a stranger in the online game.
