Stupid people who don't use the no ban codes that are in the works.

I never really have to deal with cheaters....as I play on PS3. People taking advantage of glitches however, yeah sometimes. 

What I really didnt like was getting home at 12:29AM from midnight release(#223 of 900+ people there btw) to get straight on multiplayer and not seeing a single person below level 60....except me....

Fast forward to summer, and you will see all sorts of cheats and hacks. VAC is just too flawed to be used. The game itself is full of "NOOB-FRIENDLY" spawns and crazy amount of latency... Why bother? The only mode that is not as campy is kill confirm and even that, some maps like mission, carbon... (i am sure there is at least 2 more) is totally stupid. By-the-way, why don't they just copy crysis 2 mp completely? with the carried-on from death killstreaks, dog tags (kill confirm)? Maybe the next Modern Warfare will have dedicated servers? that is actually ranked and way more enjoyable?

Maybe finally no more noobtubes like the stupid semi-auto xm25? Maybe finally showing actual latency (in numbers, instead of 50ms bar?)? Maybe the scoreboard would show how many domination points captured and defend? Maybe less aim-assists on snipers and through the walls? Maybe more shotguns that don't shoot used condoms and tissue paper? (Even the olmypia is better than all the shotguns in MW3, EXCEPT the striker).

There was a glitch for MW3 where you could do unlimited bomber strikes.  Can't blame people for not trying to use it as its part of the game!!

 

Back in MW2, the best games were always the ones where the whole level was hacked and you had super speed, little gravity, unlimited ammo, and aimbots.  Good times...

Yeah, I have seen the unlimited bombs.

One game you had a guy on each side doing that. Hard as hell to do anything.

I'm proud to say that I report every cheater! :)

But its part of the game.  He's not really cheating.

Back in the counterstrike days I'd bring the slay hammer down on people that would glitch maps to get to places that they really shouldn't be able to get to (like walking on the sky or being able to shoot through a wall).  It's not cheating but it's not playing fair.

Cheating is one thing, Glitching is another. If there are glitches in a game, that is IW's fault for not patching out the glitches.

That's what I was thinking too. So if I fall through the ground (hello BF3..) and shoot a bunch of guys I get banned? What was I supposed to do; instantly kill myself the second i happens? How about you fix your damn game instead..? 

What about like in TF2 where you can stack dispensers and people to climb on top of stuff? Is that "illegal"? How am i supposed to know?

Good. Now EA needs to get on the ball and do this for Battlefield 3.

One of the reasons someone told me everyone is going to console gaming is because everyone is using the same hardware and can't cheat. Both of those are false as you can still get peripheral upgrades on a console that give you a advantage and now apparently you can still cheat. Viva la PC Gaming!

MW3. Now with Douchebuster. Can't wait to pick this up!

Well, that kills the console market and their autoaim.

Glad to see companies taking a more aggressive and pro-active stance against hackers and cheaters.  This is one of the reasons I don't care for playing online games.  Don't want to deal with the 14-year old simpleton who via cheats has cranked his character to insane levels with uber equipment just so he can get his jollies by ganking everyone that comes near.

The average 14 year-old doesn't need to cheat to faceroll you all day long.

That's beside the point...  :p
