Activision is issuing copyright strikes on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare videos on YouTube that show you how to recreate exploits in the game.

The Call of Duty publisher is not letting anyone with a YouTube account propagate exploits and how to recreate them on the service.

YouTube network Machinima has emailed its partners warning them.

"Activision is being particularly vigilant about their Call of Duty videos lately; issuing strikes on videos showing glitches. If you post videos highlighting these glitches, your channel may be liable to receive a copyright strike so please be careful," the email read.

Activision told Eurogamer in a statement that it's business as usual for them.

"We're excited that so many fans are having fun playing the game and posting videos of their gameplay. We love watching the videos ourselves. Occasionally, some folks post videos that promote cheating and unfair exploits. As always, we keep an eye out for these videos - our level of video claims hasn't changed.

"We are appreciative of the community's support in helping to ensure that everyone has the best playing experience possible."
