  1. Aimbot

    An aimbot is a type of computer game bot used in first-person shooter games to provide varying levels of target acquisition assistance to the player. It is sometimes incorporated as a feature of a game. However, making the aim-bot more powerful in multiplayer games is considered cheating, as it gives the user an advantage over unaided players. Aimbots have varying levels of effectiveness. Some aimbots can do all of the aiming and shooting, requiring the user to move into a position where the opponents are visible; this level of automation usually makes it difficult to hide an aimbot—for example, the player might make inhumanly fast turns that always end with his or her crosshairs targeting an opponent's head. Numerous anti-cheat mechanisms have been employed by companies such as Valve to prevent their use and avoid the accusations. Some games have "auto-aim" or "aim assist" as an option in the game. This is usually a weaker aimbot, as its purpose is to make a game more accessible for less skilled players rather than to cheat in an online game. Auto aim also sometimes helps the user to aim by slowing the movement of 'looking/aiming' while the crosshair is on or near a target or slightly helping the player by moving the aiming to the player for a better shot. This is not to be confused with "bullet magnetism", which curves bullets in mid-air towards a target as opposed to moving the crosshair towards one.
