Predecessor by Omeda Studios is a frantic, action-packed game combining the intensity of an over-the-shoulder shooter and the tactical gameplay of a MOBA. We were ecstatic to put it through our Black Box penetration testing.

Predecessor is a fast-paced and action driven game that combines the intensity of an over-the-shoulder shooter and the strategic plays of a MOBA. Players take control of their chosen character, filling a role in their team and fighting for superiority alongside four allies. It conforms to the standard roles of any MOBA, with players taking up position as a carry, jungler, solo-laner, and support. Predecessor is currently available to purchase on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

The Cyrex team were contracted by Omeda Studios to conduct Black Box penetration testing on their genre-mixing title. Based on Unreal Engine 5 (utilising Unreal Engine Networking) and releasing on PC only, we tested the live services as well as the gameplay itself.

Core Features

Some of the core features we tested include:

  • Physics and Shooting
  • Character management
  • Rewards system
  • Chat systems and interactions
  • Matchmaking system


The team at Omeda Studios were delighted with our results, especially given the real-world nature of a Black Box approach. We discovered multiple potential security issues and exploits and advised the team on how best to address them. It was a pleasure working alongside the Omeda Studios team and look forward to more collaborations in the future.
