Riot Games, the creators of League of Lends, Legends of Runeterra, and Valorant hides a special recruitment message in its video game. Within the files of Valorant, there is an anti-cheat and anti-tamper system in place that is entitled 'packman.' When opened, it shows the hidden ASCII art of the company's logo and a recruiting message with the goal of looking for ambitious hackers who are able to reverse engineer the game.
They must find vulnerabilities in the code to create cheats in the game. Riot Games is looking for talented individuals who are able to use their skills to make the existing games safe and free of cheaters. An employee at Riot Games states, "the hope is that people who are doing it as a hobby or because they're curious might want a chance to do it as a career.”
