You can try. But sometimes even if it looks like they are cheating, they may not be. For this reason, Steam only VAC bans players if Steam detects that hacks are being used.

The last thing you want to do is be mistaken and have an innocent persons account VAC banned just because they have a laggy connection or something. VAC bans can not be reversed, so Steam has to be 100% certain before they ban someone.

There is no where to report it, and there is no point. It can't be stressed enough, VAC is fully automated, and does not accept use reports.

See this thread for more details. (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1385172)

I'm playing Monday Night Combat right now.... and there is one obvious dude that uses aim and wallhack... a lot of people agrees with that (of course those who play on that server).

I direct you to this post in the VAC Discussion Forum.

I contacted Steam Support to ask if you can report cheaters..
They said you CAN report cheaters by using the report violation button on their Steam ID profile pages.

However the stickied info thread and all support FAQs says you can NOT report cheaters.

So which one is true?
And why the mismatched info? Out-dated FAQs and sticky?

Play games with server admins. Report cheaters to them.
