I definitely saw this coming. Infinity Ward fought tooth and nail to keep Modern Warfare 3 free of exploits and to allow for fair play, even going so far as to ask hackers how they do their thing, apparently. However, hackers have gotten a hold of their mods.
The known exploits include walking AC-130s, infinite ammo and health, and outright violation of the laws of physics. The usual kind of hacking you would expect in an online game. Of course none of these are the least bit subtle (except maybe infinite ammo), and are definitely not “whitehat” hacks people can laugh at as they don’t ruin the gameplay.
I’m certain Infinity Ward will be on the ball in short order, dishing out some very hefty bans and filling in the loopholes that allow them to do this. Infinity Ward’s banning policy prohibits just about anything that gives yourself or others an unfair advantage, including boosting, mechanics exploit, bug abuse, and offensive behavior. Virtually every punishment they dole out also includes a stat reset which can really ruin your day if your earnings were legit for a month and illicit for an hour.
People just can’t play fair, I bet they’re also sad and lonely people with severe entitlement complexes in real life, wanting their hands held through everything and are incapable of doing anything for themselves at that!
