Guilty Gear Strive May Become Unplayable Due To An R-Code Exploit! [VIDEO]

It could particularly affect those who stream the fighting game online (as it is common practice in both the West and Japan for professional gamers to practice as such), and Arc System Works will have to act soon.


Guilty Gear Strive is the latest installment in the franchise, and Arc System Works (from now on, we’ll abbreviate it to ArcSys) style is unmistakably present. The brawler, however, can be unplayable due to a data-related exploit, which uses the game’s R-Code system to collect data about players, prevents them from connecting to other players (i.e., stops online multiplayer…), can change a user’s details during the game and even allows the perpetrator to send messages on their behalf via the game’s text chat. The worst? The PC version can crash, as memory leaks can occur, and once it does, you’ll have to restart.

“Whoever is using this R-Code exploit can now use this vulnerability to cause the Guilty Gear Strive client to have some sort of leak, slowing the game to an unplayable crawl. It occurs even in training mode and doesn’t happen with Steam in offline mode,” a professional gamer, Hotashi, wrote on Twitter. And no, it’s not just the PC version affected, as the R-Code system is also used on the other two platforms, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

ArcSys producer Zack “Shini” Tan is “back in the office“, back at work. He is already working on getting the Japanese developers to fix the vulnerability as soon as possible because the fact that the more popular players might be targeted by malicious people exploiting the vulnerability affects everyone and needs to be fixed. Last year, FromSoftware’s Dark Souls games were involved, and they had to shut down servers because of the RCE (Remote Code Execution) vulnerability…
