    Now, I know this is a weird question, but I just want to know what exactly an AntiCheat does. I think that it preforms a series of checks and if it finds something that shouldn't be happening it kicks the player. If this is right then can someone go into more detail (like an example)?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    @iChameleon Well, in most Anti-Cheat plugins, an invisible, fake player will be placed slightly behind your player, and if it is hit multiple times in succession, then it is taken as something like Force-field, or Reach. Obviously this is a very simplified version of what happens, and there are many more checks to make sure it isn't a false positive.

    For things like fast-eat, the plugin will measure the time it takes for you to start eating and finish eating, and compare that to the average that it might take for any given food.

    For anti-xray/obfuscates, the server will tell the client that any block past the initial layer they can see is something that it isn't.
