Glitching Or Cheating In Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Will Get You A Ban
It appears that Infinity Ward has started to issue ‘First Offense’ bans out to players who took advantage of the exploit that allowed you to get more keys than intended on day 2 of the 12 Days Of Winter promotion.
If you have been caught glitching the system to gain the greater amount of Keys you could be looking at a ‘First Offense’ ban from any were from 48 hours to 2 weeks depending on the severity of the infraction.
Activision has a very clear Security & Enforcement Policy that clearly states what action can be taken against players who try to beat the system and will come down on them hard if need be. Although these initial bans will only be temporary suspensions it will be a mark against those who have been handed and ban and if they are caught doing it again can face the ultimate punishment of not being able to play the game online at all.
Any user who abuses an exploit in game code or other established rule of play is subject to penalty. An example includes, but is not limited to, using a hole in the map geo to intentionally go outside of the map boundary.
- First offense: User will be temporarily suspended from playing the game online, will have their stats, emblems, and paintjobs reset, will have online split-screen privileges revoked, and will have their leaderboard entries deleted.
- Extreme or multiple repeat offenses: User will be permanently suspended from playing the game online, will have their stats, emblems, and paintjobs reset, and will be blocked permanently from appearing in leaderboards.
So be warned cheating and glitching gets you no where in Infinite Warfare and if you are caught punishment can be very harsh depending on the infraction.
