Moderating MW3 cheaters remains a struggle for Activision

While console versions appear to be hack free for the moment, the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 is still very much prone to some sophisticated methods of cheating, which some users are only too happy to oblige.

Activision has this week spoke about their ongoing efforts to reduce the amount of cheating that has been going on in the game, but has admitted that it remains a struggle for them to keep up with the sheer amount of shenanigans that is going on in online servers at the moment.

For those of you who are oblivious to what has been going on in the PC version of the game, just check out the clip we have added below which shows the game being played with an aimbot and a wallhack. What’s even more amusing is that most of the cheats available for the PC version are even being sold online to others who want to join in.

Activision is well aware of what’s going on though, and producer Noah Heller has spoken to Eurogamer in a recent interview, reiterating that when cheaters are caught, they will get their stats reset or in some cases be banned from playing multiplayer for a period of time.

However, Heller has also revealed that the company only ban players when it is completely necessary and that they don’t want to use ‘too heavy a hand’ when it comes to dealing with cheaters. After watching that video below though, we say dish out the maximum punishment possible and just remove them from multiplayer permanently. If they go to all the trouble in creating the hacks, why not suffer a lengthy exile from the game to reflect this as well? – Makes sense to us anyway.

Have you seen any cheating in the game, either on PC or the console versions of the game? We know that boosting goes on all the time on console, but we’re yet to see any major hacks like aimbot or wallhack on console.
