One Splatoon 2 user who goes by the name OatmealDome has knowledge of the inner workings of the game, like not yet revealed content or game modes. They were one of the first to know about the anti-cheat system and spoke out about it after the whistle was blown by Khangaroo from the Splatoon Modding Hub.
“Nintendo has introduced integrity checks in Splatoon 2 since version 3.1.0. I’ve known about this for several months, but have kept silent about it since Nintendo did not seem to be actively banning people.”
Nintendo’s anti-cheat system can even flag players when they are not online. Just starting up the game with mods on can get players flagged and ultimately banned the next day.
