If you think you keep dying in Call of Duty: MW3 because everyone else cheats, and not because you aren’t any good, then we have some good news for you. Infinity Ward announced via Twitter that it has started to ban cheaters from Modern Warfare 3. The ban is focusing on people who attempt to hack, cheap, or exploit glitches in multiplayer matches.
Infinity Ward says the best way for honest players to keep people from cheating is to report people they believe to be cheating. To report someone you can use the post-match report function and let them know what happened. Infinity Ward will then verify your report with in-game stats and video from the match in question.
When asked who will be banned and how long the bans will be Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward creative strategist, said via Twitter, “Every ban unique to the level of douchiness of the offense. The greater the douche the greater the length. PermaDouche possible.” While the language in the Tweet might not be overly enlightening for some people, but for players who have been victim to cheaters it most likely sums up how they feel about these people.
As of right now around 1,600 people have been banned so far, but expect more bans in the future. Seeing as MW3 almost made a billion dollars after only five days on the market that there are probably several more people who will continue to cheat. If you are cheating stop, and if you aren’t cheating Infinity Ward did not explain how people are cheating so you can’t try to copy them.
