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.
