I presume this is a cheat somehow?

This is definitely a cheated score. I believe that 65M is the potential max on MM on NGS MC

If you can, report that score and it should (in theory) be wipes from the leaderboards

I broke 70 million on MM and that was without any serious karma running, the fake scores should definitely be reported but the potential for karma in MM is extremely high due to the equipment so people do need to keep that in mind. The holy gauntlet alone has huge implications on high enemy count missions due to earning double the amount of essence.

I've not checked the leaderboards in a while but I'm not surprised the hack scores are all over the place by now.

Real shame about the hacked scores - alas, it was bound to happen. Least they're as easy to pick out as ever - the OG Sigma leaderboards are plagued by them too. The top 7 places on the vanilla NGS Mission Mode leaderboards are all over one billion, with the top four actually being in the region of -1.7 billion. I don't know what's scarier to be honest - the blatant cheating or the fact that the game leaderboards believe a negative score to be ranked above a positive one :facepalm2: Wish they'd cleanse the OG Sigma boards too... :cry:

Maximum potential karma for the NGS MC MM is obviously considerably higher than either OG NGS or NGB's MMs - given all the equipment and extra starting item bonuses, not to mention there's 50 percent more missions, the total is probably somewhere between 80 and 90 million, depending on how highly those 'extra' missions can score (I'm not familiar with Sigma+/MC MM, but as JTB said, he hasn't gone all-out for karma on every mission and his total score is already 70 million!).

It's super easy to edit your karma on PC. PS4 you prolly need that paid save decryption software but after that easy there too.
No idea why they even included a leader board cause it's worthless.

I mean, the scores people get through cheating are so crazy that it is very easy to tell which ones are real. There will always be losers out there who will try and cheat to get the most niche and obscure honors. Can't be helped. :facepalm:

The bad part is is that most of the uneducated players, when it comes to how the karma system works, think those scores are legit. I'd run across that all the time back in the day.

As this been happening on all 3 platforms?
