Yes as you read, Hacks are already available for Call of Duty Black Ops, the glory of dedicated servers is returning for the bans and the kicks of course.
That's definitely the 360 version. You can see the 360 dpad in the corner, and that isn't mouse movement. Either way, the PC version will have a little feature called 'dedicated servers', which are self governed with 'admins', so they can use tools like 'kick', and 'ban'. These sorts of features are useful for ridding your server of cheaters.
I like the summary... "the glory of dedicated servers is returning" Like dedicated servers are a downside.
People forget that dedicated servers have been a staple of PC FPS multiplayer, it was only MW2 that broke that trend. And MW2 being the big production it was, the industry treated it like it was a big deal when only it was one game. One very broken and depressing game. Is Black Ops using PunkBuster or VAC? [EDIT] Derp, it's not Steam only so it'll use PunkBuster. Shame.. VAC is so much better.
Actually Black ops is a steam exclusive from what I've heard. I already know in multiple interviews they have said that they are dropping punkbuster and using VAC instead. Just because you can buy a PC game in the store, doesn't mean it won't force you to download steam to play it.
Ahh well that's news to me. Last I heard it was using PunkBuster. Server browsing through Steam is so much better. I thought I saw it on D2D the other day, not sure why you would be able to get it from there and then have to install Steam.
COD:BO uses Steamworks. D2D and Impulse and all the other major DD sites gave up trying to fight Steam by not selling games that required Steam, but I'm sure that didn't turn out too well for them.
lol...shows tht CoD is still broken even after being fixed and it aint even released yet...
Yes it's the 360 version, but you do realize this is being played on a JTAG which is why he's playing by himself. JTAG Xbox's can make any game do anything they want. Since the new dashboard has been released, which increases MS security, JTAGs will be banned before they even have a chance to start hosting lobbies like this in Black Ops. No game is unhackable, the popular games just get hit first because....well they're popular.
@toaster - BlackOps is using VAC (it requires steamworks)
wow...watching that was so annoying, he just kept bumping into things, and did you see the little grass texture from the top view at around 46 seconds, lol (i know that is how a lot of devs make grass, and leaves on trees in games, just seemed funny seeing it so obvious from that view)
Thats only options that can be changed in server like gravity, speed and other stuff... Thats not hax :)
I'm not one to defend CoD, I don't even like the CoD games anymore, but TONS of games have hacks in them. No doubt this article will be filled with comments like the one above or similar to "LOL Cod got hacked already lololol crap game". This won't be a problem on the PC version as already indicated above as well. Either way, I don't care as I'm not getting the game. Just don't know why people are making such a big deal about it.
Is that the beta though? Cos if the full game has been hacked already, then Treyballs failed harder! The MP servers aren't even online yet.... Edit: Never mind...unlike the author of the article, i actually did some research. These hacks are offline (consoles), and not the retail version.
I thought to wait to see if this game gets hacked. It's already hacked before release. Wow activion you really suck. Well i won't be tricked into buying this broken crap again.
This is why I am glad that BOTS have been included, so I can just play with those and friends instead of these hacker dicks.
This isn't even hacking. Its modding.
Does that really matter?
lol nice one electricshadow on predicting the comments. I bet that most of them dont know what they're talking about. Just cuz an offline hack has been exploited doesnt mean the game sucks...
That is nothing, here's the game-breaker: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
U remember about 1 rank and high 100 killstrike it cheated/hack. Why they don't have Banner yet top rank? COD Black ops Return break code zip back? someone know easy hacker?
WTF? You never really passed the 2nd grade English papers did you?
They're playing on a JTAG, XBL won't let those kind of hacks even reach the surface
Thank you, someone that makes sense.
jtags killed by new dash, thankyou ms at last!!!!! so apart fro ma few glitches that will be in game,least we wont have hardcore modders killin it
Thats just lightweight and marathon.
I dislike cheaters, period. Dedicated servers do hamper cheaters, but they do not stop them. BF2:BC2 has cheaters and so will this game. I wish there was a way to permanently shut these guys down who use these hacks.
This is on system link only on a JTAG console, the public matchmaking servers are not up yet. As of now, there is no way to tell if there will be hacks introduced to public games.
this game will have massive hacks...worse than mw2 the first hack will be prestige rank hack watch this
Am I going to win the lottery? I figured I would ask since you can see the future.
