maybe they are using cheap non-working nvg's to hunt hackers.
Do I detect a hint of sarcasm or a whole lotta truth?
Cause I theres a lot of that going on still.
Can they detect that pretty much everywhere, it's gonna be hot?
i like your avatar.
This is nice to hear and all, but I spent the afternoon playing COD4 yesterday and people are hacking/cheating/glitching like there's no tomorrow. It's just crazy! I want to see results! I still enjoy some "Modern Warfare" once in a while, but right now it looks more like the "Wild West".
Ive been sending the hackers a message just saying: "ban???" They either leave the game which is good for the players in that game, or they send me a message back. I then tell them how i will report them to infinity ward and that they ban ip addresses not accounts so they wont be able to make any more accounts. Then they either stop it or leave. Works for me!
What the hell is up with that video you have linked? It's funny as hell, but where did that come from?
@DarkHawken hmm thx for the suggestion .. bubbles as well.. gonna be doing the same :).. so well annoying you know.. it only recently became so bad.. before it didnt use to be like that hmm
Meh, if the game is popular people will find faults and take advantage of it.
True, but the fact they are fixing it, instead of leaving it as they move onto Modern Warfare 2, is good.
Yeah exactly. Infinity Ward could have EASILY abandoned the CoD4 audience in a way so that if you're tired of the hackers in CoD4, you would be forced to buy MW2. Instead of completely ignoring the issue they still show support for CoD4 which could make some possibly players continue to play CoD4 and not really need to get MW2.
I'm just pleased the hackers didn't pick a good game to spoil ;)
...you're good at?
A bubble for that funny. =p
where does all the modern warfare hate come from. is it just so you can seem cool. like when people hate on apple. like if something gets popular it's time to start hating on it? i don't get it. i like cod4, i like killzone2, i'm gonna like modern warfare2, hell i liked [email protected], it wasn't the best but it was playable. i just think it's weak how everybody all the sudden hates on cod4, i think it makes you look like a tool.
Alot of people I know went off it since playing killzone 2
i havn't played it much sense killzone2 as well. but i wouldn't say it sucked. i know killzone is better. but just cause a game comes out thats better doesn't mean it sucks. i just think you guys are way too picky.
opinions, man. opinions.
You're right, man. Can you imagine what would've happened if the hackers decided to pick on Hello Kitty Online Adventure instead of COD4? /end-of-sarcasm ".....embrace the over-priced Modern Warfare 2." NEVERRRRR!!!
I had an hours session of CoD4 just there. I hadn't played it for a long time because I got bored with it a while back. Turns out theres a hacker in almost every game I enter. It actually puts MGO to shame for glitching now.
I encountered a serious hacker the other day. He couldn't die, no matter how much bullet, frag or knife he ate. That was the first time i've seen a god-mode hack used in an online game.
I've jotted a few names down, wonder if i should send them in or give them the benifit of the doubt? Nah i think i'll stitch them up :)
nobody likes a rat.
They show you no mercy djreplay. Do it...do it now!
photo evidence not just a name, I think you can post it on the IW forums.
Personally I think anyone found cheating more than once should get a permanent PSN and Xbox Live ban. Every cheater you come across in a forum complains how patches to fix a game and weekly bans are unfair, then they brag about how once their ban is over they go right back to cheating.
what is a headhunter hacker. what is headhunting. i don't get it.
To look for. They are actively seeking out hackers.
headhunting is military jargon meaning they're going for headshots, taking out the problem/opposition permanently. usually a sniper would do head hunting. i'm sure it can be used for other meanings like tracking someone down or whatever, but i know i've heard it before in the marines and such. kind of like how cluster F*** is technically a military idiom, but it can be used outside of it's natural usage for things in general that end up going really bad. or like how resistance 2's 60 player online can be a real "cluster F***" sorry got off topic.
how are people cheating at the game on consoles? like getting under the map? thats all i've seen.
You're not too familiar with the dark side of console gaming are you? It's quite easy to hack in CoD4 especially since it's easy to mod the 360. It's also kind of easy to hack CoD4 on the PS3 since IW seems to hate patching and updating CoD4 properly *cough*rumbletrophy*cough.
Go go go IF, COD4 on the PS3 is becoming unplayable by the cheaters... XBL I haven't had any problems.
Just because you haven't experienced them (which you probably have but just not big enough t say so because you love your Xbox Lulz) doesn't mean they don't exist. You only have to look around the forums related to the game to see the glitches are ruining both PS3 and 360 versions. Hell, many of the tutorial videos that can be seen on Youtube have been done via the Xbox360. Infact, to my annoyance, i had one last night on the Backlot map and the guy literally killed about 50 people and didn't die. Seriously, whats the point? Surely its better to win properly and prove you actually are good at the game, than cheat your way through it. If anyone out there plays COD4 without reverting to retarded glitches, please add me on Xbox live - Dazlfc5 and PSN - dazzalfc , would make a refreshing change to play against people who don't choose to play in a retarded manner :-D
I wonder if the once very strong playlists will soon be replaced by legit players duking it out in private matches.
@dazzalfc Me, friends and people from IW forums are palying private matches. We play S&D, domination, TDM, Tag, Mike Mayers, Snipers only, Quickscope matches, No-scope, knives only etc. If you want to play with us, messege me back. PS. No hackers :).
I'm guessing the Mike MYERS is referring to people just stabbing others without dying...? I only ask because I haven't played COD4 since before these hacks went rampant on the PS3 (and I capped Myers since Halloween is my all-time favorite movie and am just picky when people spell it wrong, not trying to be a d!ck.)
I actually popped in MW last night and couldn't believe all the cheating, flying around the screen, jumping up to roof tops, etc. It ruined the whole game for me. MW2 better be fixed and that **** better be monitered. I wanted to get away from [email protected] but MW is out of control.
i hit the disagreebutton instead of the agreebutton. there's definately a lot of cheating going on at the moment...hope that stops
it's a bloody nightmare, iv'e reported around 50 so far to sony for using the "ufo hack". hope something gets done about it soon
I'm not able to play my 360 at the moment, but that sounds terrible. Are you playing the PS3 version or the 360 version?
playing the ps3 version
Ive nort actually noticed this yet but then I only play 3 or so times a week on COD4 online... But thats sounds terrible. Imo these cheaters should just be kicked off COD4 for good and should be watched closely in any future COD game...
@dazzalfc He didn't say it never happens. I think we all know it happens for both systems. I'm glad that they are getting rid of these cheaters. The other day I was playing on overgrown and someone glitched under the map between grandmas house and the depression to get to the other side. I report them every time. Especially modded controllers. That is my biggest hate about online gaming now.
you're wrong this all started on the 360 (Console wise) it got patch but more came out and now its on PS3...although you dont see a lot on 360 atm
So whats Treyarch doing?
they propbably sitting there wanking on MW2. Notice how they have not even posted on the latest news when you enter multiplayer (PS3 or xbox) If they are working on a patch, shouldnt they be able to add new maps, trophy support and of course rumble? They have the biggest excuse to say that the PS3 updates came late when infact the 360 has had rumble from the start.why the hell cant they put it in now...
You don't see it on the 360 as much and more on the PS3 becuase it's easier to access the save files on the PS3.
Yeah...IW are looking for them, finding them, & laughing at the chaos whilst touching themselves at the thoughts of how much money they're gonna make with MW2. Let me take this opportunity to call them SOBs for being bias to PS3 owners over the course of COD4 aswell.
I hope they ban everyone doing it.
Yeah, I mean it's bad enough that people get under the maps and cheat that way, but flying and "God Mode?" That's stupid as hell. What's the point, aside from getting a huge score? But, at the same time, telling everyone you play with that you suck at games like this and the only way for them to win is cheat.
cheater should be banned for life from gaming. people who cheat in Vegas don't get to pass go and collect money they go straight to jail. so gamers should feel lucky i am just suggesting they be banned from playing online forever. its lame and unfair to honest players and it about time something is done about it.
this sh*t been going on to long . i sold mine copy a long time ago , its sad to see this going on with any game . hacker=game over
i cant play a single game without someone cheating, it makes the game almost unplayable.
I heard from a friend of mine that when he got in to one match that he was the only one that wasn't cheating everyone was underground or way up in the sky on both teams.Thank god i sold my copy back in Nov 08 when [email protected] came out.
I suppose.I haven't played COD4 for over a year.Has it really become a haven for hackers and glitchers? MGO was taken over by the hacks for a period and then 'cleaned out'.In time they returned however..... Good luck IW.
I've played COD4 on the 360 for two years now, and have never seen a hacker. Ever. How is it on the ps3 version? I'm asking a serious question, btw.
