Halo: Reach Cheaters (Abusive Farmers) Pay the Price

In most newly released games, players find ways to exploit the game for their own benefit, and Halo: Reach is no exception.

These cheaters had been boosting for in game currency, or credits, by completing in game daily challenges and disconnecting from Xbox Live, which resulted in the cheaters getting credits but not completing the challenge. Thus, they could keep earning the credits.
