CC: A Modern Warfare 2 hack which allows the gamer to go straight to tenth prestige is flying around the multiplayer part of the game.
A friend of mine did this. It just ruins the competition. Losers.
completely fed up of glitchers!
This will be really easy for developers to find out who did this. When you prestige, your XP does NOT reset. Anyone with prestige 5+ without having gazillions of XP will easily stand out like a sore thumb.
This makes no kind of sense.
If I had a legit MW2 I would rank hack. I'm more old fashioned in thinking that the guns in the game should be available at the start. I hear it's like rank 68 or 70 to unlock the ak....seriously I would rank hack this game in a heartbeat.
It should be ranked based on skill. I suprised more games don't do that. The only game i know that does that is SOCOM 2 where if you suck you are an ensign but if you're good you are a captain.
MGO is another game based on skill, I'm hoping MAG will be the same.
Yes i'm tired of this xp bullshit. I mean earning xp to get new things is good but to pick up rank is stupid. It's not an RPG.
glad i don't play mw2 on ps3!
there are also hackers on xbox as well so i don't see what your trying to say...
I understand why they didn't psn ban for the javelin glitch...it was annoying but just a glitch. This is a hack...and I'm going to be lmao when everyone who did this gets banned. Hope you people didn't do this on your primary account with all of your hard earned trophies......or do i?
Why do you people even care? It's just rank, it's not effecting you.
it would feel good to own a "tenth prestige" that ultimately sucks at the game and used this hack to be more intimidating. good luck with ur online reputation...
I'm with you evrfighter, the young players don't play for sport/competition today, they prefer arcade games with that kind of system. We have to understand that more people are gamers today, and not everyone is good, for that reason they prefer games where everyone can win, everyone can have a high rank with time, etc. By the way, in killzone only the players with high skill finish allways first (not in call of duty)
@Pillage05: So, you wouldn't ban people for exploiting the game online and ruining everyone else's good time, but you would ban for glitching a totally meaningless rank system, perhaps for trophies? I think protecting the people playing the game is more important than protecting the experience system.
^agree. This holds no basis for banning or anything. So what if someone has a tenth prestige icon? Their XP or score will not reflect that achievement in the slightest. Also, I'm pretty sure matchmaking will place them with players that acutally worked for the rank and they will be out classed making it that much harder for them to play the game.
Does it unlock anything?
You have a good point, but I still stand behind what I say. The javelin glitch was in the game to start off with. It's just like a wall glitch. Yes they are very annoying, (I don't use them, unless its to kill someone who's already using the wall glitch. I had to do that in [email protected] numerous times) It's ethically wrong(IMO) though to ban a player for something that was left in the game. The second though a player starts to alter(hack) the game in manner unintended though. good-bye and I also feel that if players want to be 10th prestige they should earn it like the rest of us. This also brings up a fault in free online play....hackers can really just start a new account whenever they want to use the hack and get away without much/any damage to themselves. I would recommend sony set up a one time fee for setting up psn accounts. That would help cut down on cheating, and would be much better than a monthly fee.
this hack is means nothing to me. i take the same stance with COD rank, as I do with Halo and Gear---you play long enough, you'll get a high ranking. Or if your good at the game, you'll get a high ranking. But there is nothing to distinguish the two. **Ofcourse once you play someone, you can obviously see how well they play, but I still think there should be something that shows how long you've been playing, to show how much time its taken you to amass that amount of exp. Please let me know if you guys find a flaw in this idea. *i know ive already said this on a diff comment.
Is I don't think IW can really do anything about this, could they? I mean what can they do about copying someones Game Save onto another PS3, there only option would be to try and pull it off whatever site it originiated from I think, and I doubt they would do it. Same for bans for people who use it. I doubt they'll go through the entire leaderboard list and scroll to every user, then compare XP. Not that I care anyway, it doesn't really give anyone an advantage, except new titles, emblems, and 9 more classes. Doesn't help there gun skill.
all of this stuff does suck but doesnt really affect us. i remember in gears 2 everyone that was level 100 sucked. it was almost funny how u think there good cause the rank but then fight em and they were horrible. they really need to start perma banning consoles from specific games cause if its psn account theyll just make a new one.
I did the Javelin glitch on my PS3. I know i shouldn;t of though. Definetely not doing this though. Pointless.
I don't know how people can play online with this type of thing going on. They can't compete against the proper gamers.
It was getting old. Glad they fixed it.
....lol...i did it couple times too. just to see if i could. needless to say, it was hilarious, and I think thats why kids do it. just for the hilarity of it all. not to try and win thru any means necessary. but this hack is means nothing to me. i take the same stance with COD rank, as I do with Halo and Gear---you play long enough, you'll get a high ranking. Or if your good at the game, you'll get a high ranking. But there is nothing to distinguish the two. **Ofcourse once you play someone, you can obviously see how well they play, but I still think there should be something that shows how long you've been playing, to show how much time its taken you to amass that amount of exp. Please let me know if you guys find a flaw in this idea.
il say it before and il say it again. sure is cOLD in here
I think it's true that "It only does everything." ...
Everything but piracy.
Well yeah, but they don't have any strings to fix a "broken" game though.
that's why this game did not win GOTY.. no server for pc, a lot of glitches on the ps3, and slow p2p on the xbox.. oh wait, the slow p2p is just what live is.
this vids been out on youtube for a while now. I believe the hack only works same day. Meaning if you turn off your PS3 or quit game the hack causes PS3's to freeze. So it is a short term hack to get your name in the rosters, whatev. Infinity Ward will have yet another patch out and prolly a ranking reset to make sure the hacked high scores will not remain.
So many loop holes.
Cod 4 had a lot of glitches and hacks also. That I would say most of us can let slide. Not patching it, pushing it. MW2 glitch and hack fest, now most of us should be able to confirm that IW are either lazy or not as good of a dev as we all were lead to believe. Honestly those who use the argument that there are only hacks because it's popular are too far lost. If that's the case, so many PS3 games would have hack saves but so far it's just Cod4 and MW2.
Funny how people don't seem to get it. This software development stuff. MW2 is a very popular game, so there are MILLIONS of people analyzing the game, looking for any cheat. I might grant that many of these glitches could have been avoided, but come on. Do you really think a public "beta" would have helped? You know people who get into betas are more interested in bragging about that fact than they are about helping test the game. And who's to say an enterprising young glitcher is going to share all his tricks with the world?
the thing is its so easy to detect too, prestige lvl 10 but 50 kills in total and 1 hours game time lol. come on IW and sony pull ya fingers out and ban em
And the disappointment continues.
because when you play online and see the tenth prestiga badge its obvious theyve glitched when they get owned lol if you were a real 10th prestige you would be decent at the game :)
as long as you play long enough you will eventually get to 10th prestige, even if you suck. This is a problem I have with most online games, you should be penalized for dieing. If I get 10 kills and 3 deaths I should be rewarded more than the guy who gets 25 kills and 30 deaths. It's the kill-death spread that really matters, if it's negative then you've given points away to the other team. But then that would annoy all the idiots who seem to enjoy running solo straight into a room full of enemies hoping to pick one or two off before they die.
Then you will like MGO for that, you can level up and you can level down depending on how you perform.
IW is so shi++y, i mean really? It's as simple as not allowing the save data to be copied over.. I am never buying a cod game again, MOH for me now.
Or if I buy a new PS3 do I not get to keep all my progress in 10+ games? Or do I have to spend 100+ hours to get back to where I was? Killzone 2 blocked the saves and now I can upgrade my HDD because I don't want have to play threw more than half the games on elite again.
Guntrol... thats what backups are for. How else do you plan on getting all your stuff to the new HD? Thumb-drive a few saves and call it good?
thats why i dont like playing this game anymore. too many cheaters
Why does everyone care so much about a leveling gltich? Rank doesn't really affect gameplay that much... Just play the game for the gameplay and have fun owning the noob pretiges... duH?
I totally agree. Some people treat the symbol next to their name as this all important thing. They wear it like their identity. The game is the same no matter what sysmbol is there. I think that if you're so concerned about the prestige symbol that it means you play entirely too much MW2. Comon guys. Its only a meaningless symbol. The object of the game is the same (dont die), and its still fun. If the hackers have made your honest prestige lv 10 seem worthless....... that's because it was to begin with.
it's funny how i get disagree's net no reply's stating why? i guess people accidently pressed it and meant to press agree xD
Since you seem clueless as well. I'll take a couple second to talk about it. What may look just like some symbol to you. Is really a feat of superior accomplishment to fellow players. It is a "earned" right to carry the rank next to your name. You cheat the system there, then you also cheat elsewhere. Also, with this hack it truly devalues the efforts of those who have done the time. Remember it's not just "noob" player's doing this. But say good player's that don't want to sit there and put in the time. Now they too get the instant rank 10 as well. Sure makes the whole rank system pointless. Yes, the rank won't match the EXP points the player has. This is where they will get busted left and right. Hopefully banned as well. But the real issue at the end of the day is. Player's are tired of seeing new hacks and glitches every single day on the game the love to play legit. I know I would if I played this game, which I don't. But I can sure understand the concern for those that do.
the real reward of prestige is owning noobs
was going to say that. If they suck, they'll still suck, even with prestige 2000
I'm not sure what's sadder. The people who use this, or IW and Sony for not giving a crap.
Why should SONY give a crap? It has nothing to do with them. Why do you give a crap? What is it doing to negatively affect your gameplay? Does seeing a kid with 5 hours and lv 10 prestige ruin your day? lol
sony should give a crap because it's one more thing people can use as a negative on the psn community imo. Personally no I don't give a crap since I rarely play MP unless it's with friends. I'm more of a spec ops guy. It was simply an observation on my part and my opinion; if either of which offended you I apologize.
well obviously Sony doesn't consider this their problem as it has given more negative rep to infinity ward and call of duty. no need to call sony sad when all IW needs to do is lock the save data.
maybe sad was a poor choice of word. I just personaly feel sony should put some presure on IW to fix this issue with people glitching the game. Of course this is just my speculation as Sony could very well be doing that. I know all these 'issues' rest on IW's shoulders but it seems to me at this point they don't give a crap where the ps3 is concerned and the big wigs at sony should be a voice for the ps3 owners when they are not being given the same treatment other gamers are. now of course this prestige glitch affects no one as a gamer still needs skill to be succesful but I'm just speaking collectively here javelin glitch, etc,. Once again I'm only speculating as I don't know what goes on behind the doors at sony. I have no issues with the game, my ps3, or the community. My comment was simply an observation on my part.
What makes you think Sony doesn't care? Would you prefer they shut down PSN until this gets fixed??? Thats like saying that your mom doesn't care if you skip school because she didn't kill you so you wont do it again!?!?! WTF You can't say IW doesn't care either. They have release...6-7 patches on the playstation, and obviously Sony cares enough to let them do it. Do you know that Xbox has only gotten 1 update. They had (for the most part) the same issues but M$ wouldn't allow the patch. There is a company that doesn't care. And no, I dont work for either of them.. You're stupid and pissed me off!
What's the point? Badge or not, if you haven't put in the time, you'll still get steamrolled.
I'm gonna do this because I can :D
Does this increase points? If not, I think Ill try it. I want the extra character slots and I dont have a billion hours to invest into the game If it gives "fake" score though, nevermind. Other people work for theirs, I dont want to be a douche and get cheap points
With open architecture (which I love btw) hardware is cheaper, upgradable, and choice is just better. But the down side is, files can be got at easier than proprietary crap like the 360 hardware and that opens games up to hacks.
Uhh, I don't think you know what you're talking about. The hack involves editing the savedata, nothing to do with the actual console. I don't understand why IW just doesn't lock the savedata, at least the multiplayer savedata anyway..
But I don't think the 360 (or the Wii for that matter) allow you to take your save data off the console? @freelancerx8 below me, I have the PC version too, but the wall-hacking is out of control on the PC version, and aimbotting. VAC is worthless. I actually want to get the ps3 version even though controllers are retarded. The hacking in the PC version is annoying the hell out of me.
got the game for PC looks a billion times better on pc than consoles, having played it on both the 360 and ps3 but on that note i wish i had it for one of the consoles so i could do all these ridiculous glitches and hacks that seem to show up every week on here. lol this is supposed to be one of the best multi-player games out there?! hahaha.....
imo, aim-botting and wall hacking are worse than the glitches found in the ps3 version.
oh well i don't even play online since there are no dedicated servers. infinity ward just cares about getting money...not creating a game that pc players will truly enjoy. i mean just look at their development cost for the game what was it like 50 million? thats a crazy high number seeing as how this is just a rehash of the same engine, i bet all that extra money went right into all those developers pockets, they knew they were gonna make a ton of money on this and were smart enough to probably tell activision "pay us whatever we want caus this game is gonna get bought by all the sheep out there like nobody's business"
*opens thread* *sees people trying to spin this against Sony* ...-_-
you sure use the word "competitive" loosely because there is nothing competitive about MW2, nor is their anything competitive about grinding prestiges, it's all about who has the most free time
Once again another hack found by www.nextgenupdate.com Im sure they're be new stuff coming soon. Enjoy
so like.. what does this do besides giving u all the weapons and perks which, if u bought the game at launch, u most likely aleady have?
