Here is some interesting news for those who love spending their time killing lots of soldiers in Call of Duty: Black Ops. This week a video on YouTube became hugely popular amongst gaming fans and the gaming world.
As reported by The Red Dragon at Battle Strats, the video is of a ridiculous massacre during an online Demolition game on the Havana map. The player had managed to get 501 kills by the end of the game with only 8 deaths. The actual game lasted a lot longer but is sped up for the sake of viewing.
From the video you can see that the player’s team seemed to have the spawn points of the opposing team on lock-down, and the players being massacred only had time to die when they re-spawned. It also appears there were a few players helping on the other team.
The new found fame for the players involved was short lived however, as Activision have now banned their accounts for now and taken away their ranks after seeing this video. They argue that what they did is a form of boosting, therefore not allowed.
Check out the video for yourself. What do you think? Did Activision do the right thing banning them? What else should be done about this? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
