How do Game Hacks work?
The most important think to know about almost every cheating method is that 99% of working game hacks will require a download and the downloaded files are then used to manipulate the game data on your device to enable cheats. This applies to all cheating methods with the exception of glitches / exploits. Data that is stored on your device (Android, iOS, Windows PC, Console) can be manipulated. However, data that is stored elsewhere cannot be manipulated. More about game hacks.
What Game Hacks are Possible / Impossible?
Traditionally powerful cheats, such as unlimited money, god mode or unlimited everything are only possible in offline games that process their game data client-side only. If a game requires an internet connection to work correctly, unlimited money and similarly powerful cheats will be impossible in 99% of cases. However, Bots (learn more about bots) can still be used to get a lot more free resources in online games where money cheats are not possible. Learn more about client-side and server-side processing of money in games.
Game hacks that are always possible will include wallhacks, aimbots, exploits, farming bots, speed hacks, glitches, map hacks, macros and scripts. Cheats that are sometimes possible include invisibility, fast cooldown, teleporting, super jump, walking through walls, flying, damage hacks, god mode, one hit kill, duplication, item hacks, stat hacks ect.
