A major hack has been discovered in Genshin Impact’s co-op mode that allows hackers to delete important objects from other players’ worlds. The hack reportedly uses the Sumeru four-star character Kaveh and third-party hacking software.
The hack works by exploiting a bug in the game’s code that allows the hackers to change the properties of Kaveh’s elemental skill, which normally creates a small area of wind that lifts objects into the air. By changing the properties of the skill, the hackers can make it so that it deletes objects instead of lifting them.
Once the hackers have deleted an object, it is permanently gone and cannot be recovered. This includes important objects such as Statues of the Seven, puzzle mechanisms, and even entire domains.
The hack is currently only known to be working on the Chinese servers, but it is possible that it could be used on other servers as well. HoYoverse, the developer of Genshin Impact, is aware of the hack and is investigating it.
In the meantime, there are a few things that players can do to protect themselves from the hack:
- Do not allow random people to join your co-op world. Only allow people you trust to join your world.
- Change your world permission settings so that only friends can join your world.
- Be careful about what objects you interact with in co-op mode. If you see a hacker trying to delete an object, kick them from your world immediately.
If you believe that you have been hacked, you should contact HoYoverse support immediately. They will be able to help you recover your account.
Here are some additional tips for staying safe in Genshin Impact:
- Do not share your account information with anyone, not even your friends.
- Use a strong password and enable two-factor authentication for your account.
- Be careful about what links you click on, especially if they come from unknown senders.
- Keep your game client up to date.
By following these tips, you can help protect your Genshin Impact account from hackers.
