D) How to cheat in XBOX Games
When it comes to XBOX game hacking and console game hacking in general there is one crucial thing: You will need a cooked/hacked console or some pretty sophisticated hardware to do it yourself, which is why most people rely on the services of other people that do have the know-how and hardware required to actually get hacks going for the latest XBOX consoles.
If you think it is as easy as plugging a USB stick into your console and “hacking it”, then you are sadly mistaken. To get execution of unsigned code and therefore cheating software, custom firmware, hardware or other techniques need to be applied. Even packet editing will require you to set up a proxy through a PC. On XBOX cheats are hard to come by and you either work for it or pay someone else to do it for you.

D1) How to cheat in XBOX Single Player offline Games
These days it has become increasingly difficult to cheat in Xbox games. Older versions of the Xbox allow for emulation, rom modding, cheat codes coded into the games, hacked consoles that allow for memory editing and code injection into the actual game, but on the Xbox One and Xbox One X and later versions, it has gotten a lot harder.
The good thing is that a lot of single player games allow you to play offline without having to install updates, which often allows you to use exploits in the game to get unlimited money / health ect through bugs that have not been fixed in the actual version of the game that you have on your physical disc copy of the game. Aside from that the methods used are not that dissimilar from the online game cheating procedures, which you can find below.
D2) How to cheat in XBOX Online / Multiplayer Games
Modded controllers are one of the more popular methods used to cheat on the new Xbox consoles, such as the Xbox One and Xbox One X. Modded controllers allow the user to basically use scripts, such as auto fire, recoil correction, drop shotting, dolphin dive shooting ect mapped to their gamepad buttons. These hacked Xbox controllers come with custom hardware and custom software that allow the user to configure whast exactly they would like to macro and allow for the player to choose between a lot of different profiles. – This is mostly used in online shooters, such as CoD or Halo, Destiny ect.
The other way to hack online Xbox games is to either have a hacked console or emulator, which is possible with older consoles, but incredibly hard with the newer Xbox versions. The default Xbox (out of the box) does not allow the user to run unsigned code (aka custom applications and processes), and getting around that limitation is very hard. Certainly nothing that someone without some very advanced hardware and some advanced IT degrees would never even be able to think to attempt.
