1,600 Modern Warfare 3 cheaters banned, fix coming
Infinity Ward swinging around its ban hammer as players exploit cheats
Infinity Ward has been on a mass-banning spree as numerous glitches are being found and exploited by cheaters in Modern Warfare 3.
Upwards of 1,600 players have been banned so far and we expect many more to come.
Posting on Twitter, IW's community man Robert Bowling said: "Any attempt to cheat, hack, or glitch in #MW3 will not be tolerated. 1600+ bans issued. Updates in works. Please cont. to report offenders."
He later added: "We are doing mass bans on PC as well while we work on updates," and has repeatedly promised a "Hot fix already in the works" for multiple glitches reported by agitated Twitter users.
Despite its issues, Modern Warfare 3 has broken movie box office, book and game sales records for five day worldwide sell-through in dollars.
