Stat resets and player bans? Don’t cheat in Call of Duty, warn enforcers

Written by: / / No Comments

Call of Duty Senior Community Manager Tina Palacios and the game’s online enforcers have reminded players that any cheating, glitching, boosting, hacking, offensive behaviour or the use of an offensive gamertag are all grounds for punishment in the game.

What kind of punishment? Harsh stuff.

On a first offence, a majority of the prohibited actions will earn you a 48 hour ban from the game as well as a reset of your online stats. Say goodbye to all of those lovely Prestiges.

As the number of offences go up, the more severe the punishment going all the way up to a console ban, but if you’re caught hacking the game, even once, you’ll suffer the same fate (i.e. a console ban).

Here’s a list of illegal activities in Call of Duty – check out the post on CallOfDuty.com to see the consequences.
