It's not even hacking, it's simple cheating. Hacking is more like the circumvention of server-side settings, whereas in Crysis, all of the settings are client-side except for how much weapons, vehicles, and ammo costs, and how much you earn. You can even use a special tool to change the map to have it without any buildings, so when you shoot, your bullets "go through walls". It's actually very easy, so many people have been doing it. They aren't even downloading anything, they just do it themselves.
I blame the idiots at Crytek for this. How can you throw together a game without any sort of security? There aren't many servers that I can go into without someone, at some time, playing with edited files. What's more annoying is the fact that there is no permaban option. When they get banned, they just have to wait for the next round to start and they rejoin.
