Infinity Ward to encourage 'Boosting' with new MW3 Face-off mode

AATG writes: "Infinity Ward and Activision have revealed the addition of a new game mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, called Face Off, which hits the Xbox 360 on 16th May as part of the latest drop of map packs.

However, with the introduction of Face Off, there's a huge concern among the Call of Duty community that this could lead to an influx of 'boosters'. Boosting occurs when players in cahoots with each other, hide in a corner of the map and kill each other repeatedly in order to quickly gain killstreaks, call signs and emblems. Players receive huge XP boosts for performing actions such as firing an entire Assault Rifle magazine into enemy players without a single bullet missing. Now in genuine play this is extremely difficult to pull off, but with co-operating enemy players it's a cake walk."

The maps are tiny, good luck finding a good place to sit things out.

Boosters are gonna take advantage cause no one can report them and because if it's 1 v 1 than they can cooperate.

Well, as much as cheating isn't cool, if they're not messing up games I'm in, it's not that bad.

Hopefully it will only be used for private matches and if IW choose's to put it in the ranked matches then i guess people will boost without being caught which is a bad idea.

I see no point in this mode. 1 vs 1 modes should be left in private matches. In ranked, on a place where nothing is really monitored, it will be abused.

MW2, and COD4 proved that.

COD is for cheaters anyway. Every single game! spawn camping, boosting,modded controllers, lag switches, cheating every single damn game I join! in blops,mw3,cod4. Screw this shit Im going back to battlefield. I hope Blops 2 becomes MEGA popular and all of the cheaters play on that game so I don't have to deal with them.

It's not like higher prestige ranks awards you better weapons or gives you an advantage in any way.

Let them boost.
