How to get unbanned from Punkbuster – Unban GUID Hardware Ban and Global Ban – PB and evenbalance

If you receive a global hardware ban If you are so unlucky as to get a ban from Punkbuster, a global ban, hardware ban, in your computer game, there is a solution for you. It takes a little knowledge, but most people can do it, or know someone that can help remove the ban. Punkbuster is surely not there for you, nor Evenbalance, that handles the bans for Punkbuster (PB).

Banmessages from PunkBuster

You ban-message could be like one of these:

“You have been permanently banned”
“You have been permanently banned from this Game Server via PunkBuster GLOBAL PunkBuster GUID BAN”

This usually means that: * Punkbuster has scanned your harddrive for a “hardwareserialnumber” and has saved it * Punkbuster has scanned your “MACadress” and saved it (taken from your identifiable networkcard) * Punkbuster has saved your CD-key or DVD-key

How to remove hardwareban

  1. Install a new Harddrive (HD). You need a new Harddrive-serial. The only was is a new harddrive. You could also set the old HD to “RAID 0” in your BIOS.
  2. Disable “LAN” in “BIOS”
  3. Install a new Networkcard, or at first put it in another slot. This is to change your MACadress.
  4. You can also change your MACadress with many freeware tools online
  5. You can try to play the game now. If you get a window/message mentioning a “GUID BAN”, your gameserial is banned. Then you need a new serial for the game also. Buy a new game. Some have the extra hardware needed, but most need to get a new game CD. Make sure you have no cheats installed, and good luck.

  4. Nick_V 11 years ago

    tombstone you also can put your old harddrives into raid, new networkcard and a new guid to unban

  6. Nick_V 11 years ago

    admin why are the other unbanforums deleted?

  7. pendragon_inc 11 years ago

    Hey tombstone, I tried just switching to a secondary HD I had installed but wasn’t using. I wasn’t unbanned until I completely changed drives and removed the old ones.

  8. AA Admin 11 years ago

    Dont cheat in the first place.

  9. Administrator 11 years ago

    Forums closed ? What do you mean Nick ?

  10. Logbat 11 years ago

    Hey,

    AA.Admin: I have to qoute you on this: Dont cheat in the first place.

    I have my entire life never cheated, well maybe with money in Rome total war on hard difficulty.

    I have been in anti cheat alliances and tried to get PB for other games like Swat4. Im 29 years old and will rather stop playing games or anything, if it means i have to win by cheating.

    And I have got this global hardware ban from PB.

  11. Administrator 11 years ago

    Hi Logbat

    Yep, know the feeling. I have cheated in some games, but most were singleplayer og networkgames, installing MODS. I was “caught” cheating, no reason but the usual from http://www.Evenbalance.com.

    I’d love for all games to be free of cheats. Still noone has managed to make games uncheatable 🙁

    But, hey, what do we do ?

    isnt there a way to get unbanned without buying new hardware?

  13. Administrator 11 years ago

    If u read the guide on this site, you should be able to reconfigure your hardware, but I guess you need at least to harddrives for starters.

    jakob

  14. framed 11 years ago

    Someone told the admin that i did something i didn’t so he got me hardware banned from a dc server. How fair is that?
    These admins can just ban anyone they don’t like. They shouldn’t be the only judge.
    Damnit!!!!!!!

  15. Administrator 11 years ago

    Only evenbalance can inforce a hardware ban. Punkbuste has nothing to do with this. Admins can report users, but punkbuster is the SW that scans your computer to check for cheats.

    So don’t blame your admin, he can kick you, and ban your from his server, but not global ban you from all Punkbuster-supported systems.

    🙂

  16. ADDER 11 years ago

    hi guys i have a question i got hardware banned too by punkbuster
    if i put my drive in raid 0 will it work any body tried it and does that work i allready have new lan card

  17. Administrator 11 years ago

    ADDER, you should have two drives, preferable that are unknow to your system. But RAID should take care of this stupid issue of ban. Move your LAN to next port. You read the guide right ?

    Cheers

  18. MriPra 11 years ago

    Hey I have a quick sloution for hardware banned get a hw spoofer.
    you ask whats that , its a smiple program (software) to change your MAC and HDD serial. So next time you try to play online and you get the hw banned from PB your just click away to go back to your game.
    Let me know if anyone intersted:) my email >REMOVED BY ADMIN @ DOMAIN .com<

  19. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    Your HW spoofers will not work. You have been pwned by EvenBalance. Go back to Pacman…

    Hey Dude “kikthth”

  22. paule 11 years ago

    please help my computer just got back from a service and trogens and adware was found on hard drive the took harddrive out did something and fixed it now i cant play on any severs pb is kiking me unpure pkg 3 file or something wrong with guide the point is im banned i wont to be unbanned please help me or shoul i by new hard drive and game i play sof 2

  23. Administrator 11 years ago

    paule – it seems your caught like so many others incl admin here 😉 Start removing malicious software, and consider looking for IP spoofers or the like. A bad road to take, but everyone else here are thinking the same, wtf happened, and how do I get back in the game. If you’ve done the guide on the pages here, I can only suggest start cheating to get back. I quit my BF2 game for a while, hate cheaters, they ruin the games for everyone else. Good players are king, but aimbots, wallhacks, cheats of all kinds ruin every game in time.

    Good luck, report back to me what u do.

    Just buy: TheKernel PB Hardware Spoofer, bought it myself.
    trust me, it works. i can even hack WITH pb detected hacks without getting kicked 😀

  25. Administrator 11 years ago

    Wow, hate that, I’d prefer a spoofer that doesn’t allow hacks 😉 But buying a spoofer ? hmmm, HW spoofer at what price and where ?

  26. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    TheKernel PB Hardware Spoofer is detected. Use at your own risk, losers

  27. The Dutchie 11 years ago

    I was just kidding about the hacks 😛 sorry,

    and to reply to [CLS]_Airborne328 : DETECTED!!!??? WAHAHAHAHAGA! your kidding right!? it is NOT detected noob.

    reply to admin: you can buy it for 25$ at http://www.thekernelspoofer.com/ with paypal or moneybookers

  28. The Dutchie 11 years ago

    [CLS]_Airborne328 is probably a dude from EvenBalance who doesnt want us to buy TheKernel
    lol

  29. The Dutchie 11 years ago

    if your version is detected Airborne, ask one of the 2 two guys at http://www.thekernelspoofer.com for a newer version

  30. bulcrap 11 years ago

    I GOT BANNED!!!! FOR NOTHING!!!! some AA official admin got in a fight with me cos i said he shouldent force class cheat his weapons and not do it for us too…. he siad im gona bann u .. i said do wot u want and the next day im global banned….. he according to my clan – sent a fake shot of my cheating that wasnt even me…

    This is absolute rubbish i payed money for games like BF and now i cant play any of them cos of some gun happy admin.

  31. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    No please buy, I need more punks to ban. And for the record I am a senior member of AASA. I have nothing to hide. Can the same be said for you.? Please, please go buy it. My count to date has been idle at 304 banned punks

  32. The Dutchie 11 years ago

    Too bad for you Airborne, that you can not ban poeple who bought TheKernel.
    It’s impossible dude

  33. The Dutchie 11 years ago

    I have nothing to hide too, i am not a hacker or something like that, i only had the hack on my PC for some Singleplayer fun, and then i was banned.
    Didnt used it online.

  34. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    Too bad for you Airborne, that you can not ban poeple who bought TheKernel.
    It’s impossible dude

    If you think so, good for you

    I mean if people are not hacking btw 😛 srry

  36. punkdead 11 years ago

    Punkbuster nad evenbalance will be hacked in 3 days mark my words… no more pb and eb forever

    Sql injections into the pb server and kabooom no more…. they will have to decrypt a 1080 bit encryption to undo the pb server and therefore will have to buy a new one and re instigate it to work with aa and other games..

    So goodbye pb u mother fukers

  37. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    LOL, said the banned player. Ill be patiently awaiting your attempt

  38. punkdead 11 years ago

    Anyone who belives Airborne is part of AASA crew is as stupid as Airborne himself…

    Why the fuk would someone who is on AASA come to site topic about trying to get unbanned from PB.

    Airborne theres a reason the world has so much unemployment – who the fuck wants u handling machinery, teaching kids or molesting a cow for its juices? nobody

  39. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    Hmmm, maybe because americas army servers run PB servers. It’s easily confirmed. Why are you wasting your time here. You said you was going to shut down PB in a few days, gauranteed. We are waiting.

    Wait your banned on AA servers, no wonder you dont know that game anymore…..:-0

  40. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    Your english/language is original, Ill give you that. Teenager original, but none the least original

  41. Miri-Sarawak 11 years ago

    Hi, First of all im been ban for no good reason .. the admin hate me because i kill a lot of people and then the admin ban me …
    how long the ban last and this bann thing is being abused.. how to counter such act ??

  42. [CLS]_Airborne328 11 years ago

    Being banned by a particular server, doesnt get you banned serverwide. Just play on another server. Or you can always go to their forums, and in a respectful amnner inquire as to why you were banned.

  43. Thats real original and mature, let me guess, mommy and daddy are out of town.

  44. Naxthor 11 years ago

    Yaright… put the NIC into another PCI slot and it changes you MAC…. like, he fell asleep sometine during his computer lessons.
    Ur MAC ID is bound to the NIC and is unique.
    You can mask it or ‘change’ the MAC address with tools yes.

    but still… what’s this post all about??
    Some people wil actualy folluw up the advice and buy new hardware… for what..?

    Most issues wil be gone if you just BUY your game instead of using copy’s. because thats the main reason people get banned.

    Then again, I think Punkbuster is’nt that great…

  45. hanna 10 years ago

    hi there – i made the mistake of cheating months ago – something i sincerely and completely regret – but subsequently played ok afterwards. but now i find i am banned globally by PB even with a brand new (actually refurbished Gateway) laptop on two different accounts. anyone have any suggestions? thanks!

  46. Administrator 10 years ago

    Hi Hannah
    You should have gotten a new EA game and thus serial. They shouldn’t be able to ban your IP ! New laptop is great though.

  47. Hanna 10 years ago

    actually, it was America’s Army – they banned 2 accounts i had but did not tie my new hardware into those accounts, so i was able to get back on by creating a new account.

    moral of the story: don’t cheat (duh!) thanks!

  48. Administrator 10 years ago

    yea, duh… Most people feel a bit silly afterwards. Fun while it lasted, but then total anticlimax 🙂

  49. hyphy 10 years ago

    … im mad. Aparrently alot of noobs hate me cuz i own in Call of Duty.. so they banned me.. ehh how gay?.. they thot i was hacking.. makes me mad cuz that was my fav server.. anyone got any ideas to bypass this ” perm banned” thing? catch me on xfire if u can: uniiqu3xwun

  51. Maler 10 years ago

    Hey there
    You must not use the original harddisk, unless you use RAID. If you just use the old Harddrive Punkbuster will detect your harddrive and the serial on it !

  60. Bummer 10 years ago

    I got a Global BAN for some months ago, but I can play other Punkbuster games, except Battlefield 2.

    Does that mean I am not hardware banned like what you are describing how to bypass here in your article ?

  61. Administrator 10 years ago

    I’ve not experienced that punkbuster on other games ban you due to the one game you’ve been banned on. SO I guess a ban only works for that one game, ie BF 🙂

  62. Bummer 10 years ago

    I see 🙂 I just wish there was any way to see if a ban is just a ban of the serial key or a hardware ban also

  63. Administrator 10 years ago

    You should be able to see it on the message, what does it say ?

  64. Bummer 10 years ago

    It says that I have a Global BAN, but punkbuster works fine in all other games without any problem.

  65. derek2191 10 years ago

    I got a Global BAN for some months ago, but I can play other Punkbuster games, except call of duty 2

  66. mastahboten 10 years ago

    I got a Global BAN for a couple weeks ago. Does that mean I am not able to play my banned game everagain? Even playing it with a single player missions? Because evrytime i launch the game it gives me an error something like “cod2_mp.exe encountered an error and need to be close”. Need your help please! thanx

  67. mastahboten 10 years ago

    does it mean if you got banned your not able to play the game anymore?

  68. Administrator 10 years ago

    sorry to say so, a global hardware ban and guid ban means no more game. You’ll have to spoof your hardware and get a new gamepack 🙁

  69. mastahboten 10 years ago

    thanks Admin. If thats the case i have to uninstall this game.

  70. Administrator 10 years ago

    Yea, but uninstaling doesnt make you able to play 🙂 Sadly there is onley one way, hard cash and a HW spoofer.

  85. Stupid solution 9 years ago

    -Backup players folder
    -Open the game
    -Take note of your key (you will need it if you mess up)
    -Change your Key (use some keygen)
    -Join a cracked server
    -Exit to the main menu
    -Make sure your key is still the same as you typed in
    -Exit the game
    -Open your game

    I’ll say it again—- DO NOT CLOSE YOUR GAME B4 YOU JOIN A SERVER AFTER CHANGING YOUR KEY

    OR YOUR STATS WILL RESET!

    If all went well then you kept your rank and changed your key. If you did smething wrong

    then you will now see a message that says your stats have been reset!
    At that point u need to change back to your old key and replace your players folder that

    you backed up and start all over.

  94. Thomas Villahermosa 9 years ago

    Something is f***ing wrong with punkbuster i spent like 60 bucks for this god d**mn game, I wait like 5 mins to make an account 3 mins to find a good not full server another 3 mins for the f***ing server to finish loading and yet on my first few minutes of playing in a punkbuster server i get kicked out and get permanently banned for no reason whatsoever. And almost all of the good servers are run by punkbuster and they just ruin the fun!!!!!

    I didnt even teamkill 3 guys, and I get kicked. And yet someguy kept teamkilling us and the admin never even bothered to kick and ban him.

    Punkbuster is MORE than unfair!!! Those sons of bit**es
    dont deserve to run servers.

    A word of advice for the PB admins:

    Think BEFORE you BAN!!!! People try to enjoy and yet you ruin everything. A$$HOLES!!!!!

    Have a nice day!!! Sicko Punkbuster

  95. Gizmosis Ghost 9 years ago

    92… just got the same problem. I’ve been playing for 3 years and suddenly i get a ban for a “MD5TOOL” I did notice however that i was getting big game problems prior to this.ie.. BSOD .. lockup and the game just vanished sometimes..
    .
    Now according to the message at the top..”This usually means that: * Punkbuster has scanned your harddrive for a “hardwareserialnumber” and has saved it * Punkbuster has scanned your “MACadress” and saved it (taken from your identifiable networkcard) * Punkbuster has saved your CD-key or DVD-key”
    So Punkbuster has accessed my machine to obtain information.??? If they have they should read .
    http://www.opsi.gov.uk/ACTS/acts1990/Ukpga_19900018_en_2.htm
    .
    Section 17 is intresting…
    .
    17 Interpretation

    (1) The following provisions of this section apply for the interpretation of this Act.

    (2) A person secures access to any program or data held in a computer if by causing a computer to perform any function he—

    (a) alters or erases the program or data;

    (b) copies or moves it to any storage medium other than that in which it is held or to a different location in the storage medium in which it is held;

    (c) uses it; or

    (d) has it output from the computer in which it is held (whether by having it displayed or in any other manner);

    and references to access to a program or data (and to an intent to secure such access) shall be read accordingly.
    .
    So if they have take that information from MY computer and are using it against me errr. who are the hackers ??
    Who Has Broken The Law.??
    (a) They are altering my program to prevent me playing..
    (b) The CD/DVD key is my private property, i purchased that not Punkbuster.
    (c) They are storing my I.P/MAC Address’s
    etc..etc..
    Need we say more….

    ok….this annoying..i installed cod4 to my dads laptop but i used a serial from serials.ws
    then i join a LAN game (yes, a LAN game) that my other pc was hosting then when i start to play vs my dad he got an error saying somehting about [perm ban issued, GUID 1q2w3e4r5t6y7u or whatever]

    and i cant do any of the stuff u said so basically, is it
    a) PBs fault and they are c0ck bags
    b)my fault for using a free serial – in which case ill change it —also will it be unbanned after i change to a ‘real’ one?
    c)possibly a firewall but mcaffee has never had any probs before..

    how i get unbanned?? pls help

  97. Jupilleke 9 years ago

    How to get over this:
    Without me knowing, my son bought (with my credit card number, the punk) and installed a cheat program on my PC, running my COD4, playing with my userid (jupilleke)…. Result: BANNED, what is quite fair, me too, I hate cheaters in game.
    Now the fun part, I contacted evenbalance, explained them what has happened, even did a full reinstall of my system, so totally clean.
    Their answer is very agressive telling me you’re a f***ng cheater and a lot of teenage garbage mouth-sh*t an dthey don’t want to do anything…. Hey, I have been honest…
    I played long and honest to get to the highest level without any cheat.
    I can buy a new copy of COD4 without any problem (although I hate this idea) but some kiddies can decide that someone can or cannot play online without listening to real serious arguments.

    That’s what I call low.

    Does someone know an email address from a boss at evenbalance?

  102. Accidentally Banned 8 years ago

    I used info here and it is good. Picked up a ban when I accidentally had a hack running in background after playing local LAN games with my brother. Was unintentional but EA/Level Field or whatever they are called doesn’t give a toss. No second chances, no appeal just never play a punkbuster enabled game again on the same machine!

    THIS PROCESS WORKS! Thanks to this website I can play again!

    Process for me on Vista 64 was:
    1. Spoof MAC’s using MadMacs MAC spoofer (Freeware)
    2. Reboot (now have new MAC addresses on both NIC’s)
    2. Convert disk array from RAID1 in BIOS to RAID0
    3. Unistall BF2142 and reinstall with new ProductID (I had two copies of game)
    4. Force Router to change internet IP as precaution

    A note here might be that http://www.punkbusted.com tells you when you were banned and for what (which violation).

    I’m not a hacker and I don’t cheat online. Me and my brother were mucking about on our local LAN.

    Punkbuster is so draconian, no warning or even a 7 day ban, to make sure you don’t do it again. Why not warn you so that if it is a geniune mistake you can rectify it. Lets face it you don’t even get a lifetime ban from society for murder!

    Anyways they P1ss3d me off so much I have made a $15 donation to hackers site that specialised in attacking punkbuster!

    Alot of ppl are confusing PB bans w/ server bans. If a server admin bans you that has nothing to do w/ PB. A server admin is a representative of the PPL who PAY to keep that server running. An admin DOE NOT NEED A REASON to ban you. They are paying to run the server and have every rt to kick you b/c they don’t like your name, your face or whatever else. Its their property, stop complaining and play on another server. Now as far as pb goes, yeah, evenbalance is a bunch of dicks that have no appeal process. If you cd key gets stolen they ban you and you’re toast. Sux.

    if you are banned on ET (any server) they can ban a few things… IP—>bad becouse you can change your ip when u reboot your modem
    ETKEY—>bad becouse u have new when u reïnstal ET
    name??^^—> you can gues bad… just change your name

    the last thing they can bann is your mac adress.. thats an unique adress that normally cant be changed so they think you never will play again on that server becouse your banned… but there’s an easy way to change your mac adress… if you want to know how post a reply and i will explain you ^^

    how to change the MACadress?

  111. joran 7 years ago

    well… its not really chaning its spoofing …
    if u got windows… oké…
    u have to delete ET from your PC
    then go to “star”–>”run” and type cmd
    than type in the screen u got : ipconfig /all
    and then something like fysic adress… (write this down on a paper or something else…)

    then go to “network connections” there u see ur internet thing
    right click on that en select : properties
    now get a screen: at the top u see where ur internet connection is going to at the right of that klick configurate
    that at the top click the 2dn button and than search for : locally administrated address
    than at the right click the circle before the text area where stands value above
    and typ ur new mac adress in… (6 characters without the “-” between it… example: 00D9E6PMQ410
