Among Us devs are fixing those Trump 2020 hacks, but you’ll need to be patient

Among Us has been plagued by hacks of late, bots that spam the chat with right-wing propaganda, and despawning that breaks the game. Developer InnerSloth is working on solutions for the social deduction game, but the fixes are taking time. The hacks began earlier this week, when players started seeing the in-game chat fill up with messages of "Trump 2020", and links with the threat of hacking your device if you don't click-through. The bots responsible have infected a huge amount of rounds of the multiplayer game, leading to a lot of pressure on the developers, a team of three, to try and sort out a hotfix. Solutions are happening, with two waves of fixes having been released thus far. "Alright, wave two of anti-hacks are going out. Wave one did fix impersonation, this is why the prominent hack now is just chat spam and mass despawn," one of the devs tweeted. "Wave two should fix both of these. We'll see where we need to go from there." The replies are a steady mix of those who're now playing bot-free, and many that aren't, so it's clear the studio still has a climb ahead of it.
