Earlier on this week we spoke about Activision’s efforts to clamp down on the amount of cheating that is going on in game at the moment, but now we have confirmation from Infinity Ward that a serious new glitch has been found in the new Black Box DLC map.
Community manager Robert Bowling has mentioned one glitch, but we’ve seen on YouTube that there are actually a few glitches on the Black Box map. You would have thought that since the days of COD4, Infinity Ward would work harder to make sure these glitches don’t appear in the first place, but you’ll see in the videos below that glitches are still ever present, with users more than happy to take advantage of them.
If you have been using the glitches, it probably isn’t a good idea to keep using them as Robert Bowling has confirmed that they will be banning users for using the glitches if they catch you. For those that aren’t aware, the two we’ve spotted both allow players to get out of the map and still kill people freely. One requires the osprey gunner and a teammate, while the other can even be done with a single player.
The tweet by Robert Bowling has been met with some criticism, as players argue that Infinity Ward shouldn’t be banning players straight away for taking advantage of a problem that the developers should have tested properly before releasing. Having said that, glitches are still glitches and Infinity Ward has always taken a strict approach with those found abusing the leaderboards.
Have you spotted players going outside of the map on Black Box? On the plus side for PS3 owners waiting for this to arrive, at least Xbox 360 Elite owners are essentially beta testing the map for you.
