Bans for Modern Warfare 2 PC

PC News | Activision targets cheats.
Cheaters beware, because Robert Bowling has announced via Twitter today that about 2500 players will be banned for abusing game mechanics in Modern Warefare 2 PC.

Bowling, who is Community Relations Manager at Infinity Ward tweeted that Activision were on the task of seeking out cheats. “The Steam ban hammer is coming down on about 2,500 confirmed #MW2 cheaters,” said Bowling, which is a healthy chunk considering the title has been out less than a month.

There has been no word yet about console users potentially abusing the game.

That's actually around 1/10th of the players that I usually see in the online player count in-game (It's usually between 24-30k a day)...

That being said, saw a guy get banned when he joined a game. Pretty hilarious.

That's okay. A dedicated servers app is due on Monday, so we can play how we want.

They wouldn't have had to waste their time if they had dedicated servers and let admins kick cheaters.

External programs such as aimbots. And or modifying dll files is enough to get vac banned.

Very easy to do it. That and VAC is very easy to bypass with an aimbotter.

Makes you wonder why people even bother to play the game if they got some cheat to get them to the top...

To piss other people off would be the first reason that comes to mind..

Most people are cheating because of their dissatisfaction of the game being without dedicated servers. IW pathethically said that VAC would stop cheaters as a reason why we didnt need dedicated servers and the abillity to kick or moderate games ourselves.

I find it funny that every cheat movie that I see has horrendous Nickleback style douche knuckle music.

I find it odd that trying to stop cheats increase the amount of cheaters , or they were just lying to sell some DLC on PC

that hack looks like it would be fun for about 60 seconds... after that it totally destroys the rest of the game

I too wish to know more!

Either way, if this is not endorsed by orginasations like 3fl or Game Arena, Internode etc., unless a good chunk of the community shell out the money for dedicated servers, it may be limited. Especially in the aussie community, where its notable on server lists on CoD4 or on any game with dedicated servers you have played, the high ping servers in the 200-400 region out number the <100 servers vastly.
