Following its release a few days ago alongside the bite-sized Nintendo Direct, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy has a security problem. According to ResetEra user Max Payment, online multiplayer matches on Switch servers are easily accessible by PC players, who are taking the opportunity to drop in and obliterate everyone around them with their all-powerful mouse and keyboard. Here’s Max Payment’s account:
I was excited to play this game online, so I picked it up immediately. I joined a game where 1 player was absolutely mopping the floor with us and he had .twitchtv in his username.
Sure enough, I looked him up and he was playing on PC in a switch server absolutely decimating everyone.
Apparently all you have to do is take the server IP from a console match, which is clearly visible on console, and enter it in the PC server browser and join.
The Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy PC invaders have been spotted by Twitter users as well.
The Switch port of Jedi Academy seems to be running on P2P PC servers. Poor unsuspecting buyers are playing on servers with PC players who are totally wrecking matches and cheating. This is a disaster.

Hopefully, whatever the problem is here, it will be patched out in time. Especially for a game like Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, where a mouse gives you a massive advantage in swinging that dastardly saber around, PC players have got to be kept in their own zone.
