Reports of Team Fortress 2 crimes spiked over the weekend, with widespread accounts of a “lag bot” invasion ruining casual matchmaking. Malicious bots are not new to TF2, but these bots are especially frustrating because not only do they rack up kills with automated aiming, they also crash servers when legitimate players attempt to kick them.

Based on the state of the TF2 subreddit, which now features a megathread just for discussion about the bots, the problem is not minor. “March was honestly the calm before the storm,” writes user DerpyEinstein. “April is 10x worse than it was two weeks ago.”
