Battle-Eye: An Anti-Cheat

Battle-Eye: An Anti-Cheat

What is Battle-Eye?

Suter, Bastian started developing BattleEye during the Fall of 2004. It gained acknowledgment when BattleEye partnered as a third-party anti-cheat with Vietnam's Battlefield. As early as 2005, professional leagues start incorporating it in tournaments. Due to its garnered popularity, BattleEye continues to get more partnerships with Battlefield games such as Battlefield 1942. A continued breakthrough happened the following months when it was announced that Battlefield 2 will be using BattleEye. After the official release during the summer of 2005, it became more popular. It gets used by many leagues, including major German companies. Even small-time server admins also began using BattleEye to strengthen the security of their public game servers. Early 2006, Battle-Eye was first integrated into a game, Warsow, a free to play first-person shooter game. It was backed up with full official support from the developers. With Battle-Eye built-in into Warsow, it improves its cheat and game hack detection compared to it being just a third party application for games a year before. Later that year, Soldat, a 2D action game, followed Warsow's integration. Battle-Eye finally found success during 2007 and 2008 when associated with ArMA and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., a popular multiplayer game. This marked a significant milestone for the Battle-Eye team. To this date, Battle-Eye continues to improve as it garners more associations with new big games like P.U.B.G. (Player Unknown's Battle Ground) and DayZ.

How does Battle-Eye function?

Battle-Eye starts by inserting a kernel module into the game. The kernel module will significantly impact the game bringing the handle access to near-zero. This means that any third-party application will fail to make changes to the game. Although nothing is really bypass proof, it is challenging to bypass game modification access with Battle-Eye's protection.

Is it possible to bypass Battle-Eye?

It is possible to bypass Battle-eye, but you will need a good overview of how everything about the game, installation O.S., and coding. As a coder, you have to be smart in hiding the cheats. Some of these methods are driver based cheats and lssas.exe. You can get an idea of where you can begin in the bypass.


Drivers will be the more problematic method to start with since you will need it to get signed first. The Windows O.S. does not allow unsigned drivers to operate unless it is in test mode. Unfortunately, Battle-Eye games do not run in test mode.


Lsass.exe is a program associated and built inside Windows 10 itself. Disabling or terminating lsass.exe will crash the computer O.S. itself. It holds the "handles" operation; therefore, Battle-Eye cannot modify this. Recently, Battle-Eye did something about this, so you will have to think of more ways to improve on this idea.

Battle-Eye as a premier anti-cheat

Battle-Eye is arguably one of the best anti-cheat available in the market. It is believed that Battle-Eye runs in ring 0. This indicates that it can strip as many handles as it wants to. It will be complicated to bypass this.
