Call of Duty Black Ops cheaters, in just one day you’ve managed to bring out the worst in the developer’s multiplayer lead. Nobody likes a cheater (except the cheaters themselves), yet somehow they’re running rampant in Call of Duty Black Ops and disrupting all of the above-the-board Call of Duty Black Ops non-cheaters in a big, big way.
How big? Well, big enough to not only get the attention of Treyarch, the company that developed Call of Duty Black Ops, but to get a stern, terse and somewhat non-politically-correct response from the game’s multiplayer director, David Vonderhaar. Here’s what he told Eurogamer:
We are disinterested in making mini-celebrities out of douche-bags. You better think twice before you glitch. You never know who in your game doesn’t like glitchers who reports you and saves the game in their File Share and tells us about it. What many of these people want is to be internet nerd famous. I’m not going to make them famous and you shouldn’t either. Given the opportunity, I’d personally wield the ban hammer for anyone who thinks he is clever by abusing any glitches. Good thing I don’t have the opportunity that often and we actually have a constructive, measured, and well-managed live ops team.
So, if you’re one of the so-called Call of Duty Black Ops cheater “douche bags,” look out. Treyarch is hunting you down like a sniper in the battlefield, they’re going to catch you glitching, and you’re going to be kicked from their servers in a New York minute — if not by them directly, than by their live ops team.
