ok let me restate this:
santa hack is patched
all clothing hacks are patched
all name hacks are patched.
PATCHED means PATCHED
they do not work anymore or anylonger.
you will not see anyone in game with santa gear nor will you see anyone carrying 7 guns.
not hackshield detects CE, not the addresses changed. PATCHED.
now unless he finds a way to tell the server to NOT cut off his connection because he is hacking (in which case the items would be a clientsided effect and you would see his normal gear) then its a lie.
when you log in to the world server (by starting a game) it checks the bytes for your clothing/gear... if you are wearing anything you dont own then you get kicked to the lobby and get a nice popup that makes me laugh every time i see it.
