I'm having the same issue in BF3 - PunkBuster kicking for Violation #74005.
Started playing BF3 in 2012, but since 2015 I've been very on and off, often going months without even turning on the PC. Been playing a lot over the last couple of weeks, however, and it was the afternoon of 30-12-18 when I was first kicked from a server by PunkBuster.
Hesitant to even bother saying this, as any cheater would say the same, but I have never cheated in any game, and never will.
- No cheats/hacks/exploits have ever been installed or used on any machine I have owed, or any machine which my GUID has come into contact with.
- I am the only person with access to my computer and I do not use the 'Remember Me' function on the Origin Client or Battlelog.
- The various bits of software on my PC have remained basically unchanged since 2015.
- Looking at my recent games on Battlelog, I can't see anything that doesn't look like my activity.
Have been checking out the recent bans on PBBans and it looks like a fair amount of people are getting banned in BF3 for 74005.
@ 1730 on 02-01-19, 37 of the 100 recent official bans on PBBans were for BF3, and were made up of the following:
74005 (Multihack) – 23/37
51161 (Aimbot) – 4/37
60552 (Wallhack) – 1/37
81657 (Game Hack) – 1/37
71555 (Multihack) – 2/37
82010 (Game Hack) – 1/37
71398 (Multihack) – 2/37
130844 (PB Hack) – 1/37
71306 (Multihack) – 1/37
51036 (Aimbot) – 1/37
As you can see, the vast majority are for 74005.
Does anyone have any idea what these violation codes stand for? Does each one represent a specific piece of software / exploit? Or is 74005 just a generic 'catch all' for the average 'multihack'? I have never looked into anything like this before, so it could just be typical for 74005 to come up as a common violation. No idea.
One thing I did notice is that in BF4, there are a lot of violations for 74004. Related somehow?
I have submitted my ticket to EvenBalance, but will be very surprised if I get anything other than the usual copy-paste that they seem to send everyone else...
To be completely honest, I haven't 'lost' anything by getting banned. I pretty much only play inf maps now with M16, and I have an alt account which allows me to play like this. What bothers me is the black mark on my name.
Anyone with more findings / info / updates - please post here. If you know of anyone who is having the same issue, please encourage them to post in this thread.
