Can anything be done about hackers on Official?

In official mode, you can do almost nothing to control the server. You are essentially providing a server for EA to use -- for free -- according to EA's wishes.

Here is my entire post:

BF4 Official Kick


There are multiple ways to kick a player from a BF4 official server, once you send a command, the player will be kicked till Punkbuster server get restarted.


You can kick players by using these punkbuster commands(on console):


PB_SV_ProtectName (A player with a protected name can't stay on server)

PB_SV_ProtectTag (A player with a protected tag can't stay on server)

PB_SV_CVAR (any CVAR rule to trigger a punkbuster violation)


PB_SV_ProtectName Player_name


PB_SV_ProtectTag Player_tag


PB_SV_CVAR name EXCLUDE Player_name

(This will kick any player that has a cvar "name == player_name", if you find others CVARs you can use, "player/server" must have a CVAR)

From the 3 options to kick, the "best" one to do is PB_SV_CVAR, because you can make custom kicks, but it need a little bit of scripting.

Bu it's possible to do on console as well, for instance you can do like this:


PB_SV_CVAR "name: Auto-kick by anticheat plugin etc..." EXCLUDE Player_name


The player will be kicked but it may take 10 seconds to 1 minute and 14 seconds to kick.

PB_SV_ProtectName may take more, but always work.


To speed up CVAR Kick, you need to do a few others commands before the one that does the kick, don't ask me why, it just work like that:


PB_SV_CVARVAL name Player_name

PB_SV_CVAR "name: " EXCLUDE Player_name

PB_SV_CVARVAL name Player_name


When you do PB_SV_CvarEmpty, it clear any cvar rule, so you need to wait for the player get kicked, if you try to do 2 kicks using this method, only the last player will be kicked.

if you want to do more, just remove PB_SV_CvarEmpty command.

You can do PB_SV_ProtectName as many as you want.


If a player that got kicked, rejoin, then if you try to kick again, it will take 1 minute and 14 seconds for the kick to take effect.

If you send the command before the player spawn, it will take 1 minute and 14 seconds for the kick to take effect.


This does not prevent a server crash, as soon as the cheater spawn, he can crash it under 10 seconds, if there was a way to speed up these commands, then it could work.

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.

      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.

      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.

      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.

      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.

      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.

      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.

      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 

      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.

      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.

      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month

      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.

      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
