Treyarch community manager Josh Olin has told NowGamer that Black Ops hackers use "scare tactics", and that most YouTube videos of hacked Black Ops servers are offline mods - which won't work online.
That's good, I'm sad to see old series like SOCOM, which is a tactical shooter relying on teamwork and stealth, are being infested with pre-loaded cheats/mod. I'm all for great home-brews to support our great independent developers, but when you start playing online with infinite health and unlimited ammo then you're crossing the line.
yeah i agree Enzo cheating is for losers
Do gamers tend to believe what they see on YouTube? I don't.
The truth lies in between . There are exagerations , but as expected from any dev , Treyarch is downplaying it too .
I never experienced any of this
It's interesting to see how the hacks might be seen as online when they're actually offline. Doubt the same was true of Modern Warfare 2.
back tracking are we, respect the name
Imagine how different Infinity Ward would have been had they anticipated that kind of problem. The game was literally and figuratively hacked to pieces. It prevented the release of future patches because the issue extended far beyond the "javelin glitch". If there is one thing I can say Treyarch has definitely nailed, it's the prevention of egotistical tards ruining a game for the major community. They have some way to go in making Black Ops the best it can be, but at least some of the major annoyances have been quelled.
" People think ‘Oh a YouTube video has 10,000 hits so there must be 10,000 hackers’, but it’s just a YouTube video they’re spreading around." I'm sorry but I laughed at this. Who are the "people" that think that? :p
