Over 1,600 Modern Warfare 3 players receive bans for cheating

Saturday, 19th November 2011 14:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Infinity Ward has started laying the ban hammer down on those who “cheat, hack, or glitch” in Modern Warfare 3, with over 1,600 already banned from the game’s multiplayer. According to a tweet from Robert Bowling, attempts to cheat “will not be tolerated” and he asked that folks continue to report offenders until a patch, currently in the works, is released. Bans from the leaderboards and playing were issued on launch day as well, with Bowling stating that anyone “attempting to play unfairly or boost rank” would be culled. Thanks, VentureBeat.

    I kinda fear that EA are too busy with the stability on BF3 to do something like this. And it is becoming pretty badly needed.
