FACEIT Client Anti-Cheat is the official anti-cheating game software of the FACEIT esports platform that has attracted over 22 million players across the world.

You can also download the FACEIT Client.

Originally established in 2012 as an e-Sport and Tournament friendly destination with a wide array of tools that cater to both professional gamers and fans of the e-Sport scene, this platform has evolved into a fully-featured ecosystem for fair and sportsman online competition in a wide array of popular competitive titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, Rocket League, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. After eight years on the market, FACEIT was purchased and merged into a new company ESL FaceIt Group.

One of the core pillars of the entire FACEIT platform is its reliance on FACEIT Client Anti-Cheat, a client-base application that actively scans for a wide array of telltale signs of cheating software, thus ensuring a level playing field for all players.

The app was developed in such a way that can detect not only previously recognized hacks and cheats but can also detect signs of newly developed cheating software that was not yet formally scanned by any anti-cheat services. The cheats for popular e-Sport titles come in numerous forms and can help players illegally gain an advantage in the form of auto-targeting, seeing through walls, adding radar overlays, removing run recoil, modifying rendering of games to easily detect opponents, modifying drivers, attempting to shut down active anti-cheat detection, use deceptive means to evade previous bans, and more.

FACEIT Client Anti-Cheat is a required application for the FACEIT gaming platform. It is used not only as a method of guaranteeing the sportsmanship of all participants in online matches but also as an account identity authenticator.

In addition to offering all players access to its advanced matchmaking service, the FACEIT platform also offers players extensive tracking of their stats which can be used to gain valuable insights and more easily climb through ranks. The platform is also home to a thriving community that is managing its own chat rooms and custom servers that can have user-defined rules, map pools, and more.

FACEIT Client Anti-Cheat is 100% FREE and can be used on all modern versions of Windows OS.
