Battlefield 3 Bans Cheaters, Tactical Light Nerf Incoming

We've got a couple of little news bites involving Battlefield 3 for your attention this morning. First of all, cheaters beware: DICE are gunning for you. The gauntlet has been thrown down on the official twitter feed, which states that "hundreds" of accounts have already been banned and there are plenty more to come.

"This week we've banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting (such as boosting)."

"We are working on banning as many people as we can as quickly as we can. We have a zero tolerance policy for cheating."

In other news, DICE has also confirmed that the outrageous Tactical Light attachment (that can blind players from mid-range in broad daylight) will be nerfed in an upcoming patch. Anti-air fire will also be rebalanced to make for easier flying. [Twitter]
