COD Black Ops: 15th Prestige Hack – Game Ruined Already?

We have some shocking news to bring you now, as although Call of Duty: Black Ops has only just been officially released a few hours ago, it looks like hackers have already found a way to hack into the game. We have a video which shows some solid evidence of this.

Judging by the video we’ve just seen, it looks like the guys over at TheTechGame.com are responsible for the hacks, or at least they know the person who has done it.

What you are about to see in the video, strong language aside, is hackers bypassing the game’s security and unlocking 15th prestige mode instantly, as well as unlocking and completing all of the challenges within Black Ops. They have also managed to gain access to a 15th prestige-only multiplayer lobby, which of course ruins the whole concept of levelling up in the first place.

It looks like Activision and Treyarch are already aware of the video, as they have removed the main clip from YouTube, although it has since been uploaded again.

Take a look at the video and let us know your thoughts on this. Are you disappointed that the hackers have exposed this, or annoyed with Treyarch for making the game so ‘easy’ to hack? It looks like Treyarch may now face a task similar to what Infinity Ward faced with Modern Warfare 2 when hacks started to emerge.

We’re disappointed about this, what about you? Check out some screenshots of the hack below, in case the video goes down.

I’ve been looking for a ‘Stige hack that works and so far can’t find squat. I am actually alright at the game but I don’t have whole weeks to spend trying to prestige the legit way. Anyone know of any working hack that I can download, for theoretical reasons.

Why do you ppl give a damn if some ppl decide to 15th prestige the "non-legit" way? What so they're instantly "cheaters" and "hackers" who have no life and should be banned? Srsly, all you get from prestiging is more titles/custom classes, it doesnt actually effect the game. (rank does not trump skill!!) If they were actually hacking it like infinite ammo/health just for themselves/their team I'd understand, but really all you haters (including Activision) have to pull ur heads out of your asses and just enjoy the game. Personally, I'm a PROUD 10th lobby prestigist in MW2/WaW, it doesnt… Read more »

Cheaters get bored with the game fast cause all they do is completely dominate, and constant winning gives no challenge so they get bored and stop playing sooner. The people who dont cheat get pissed off cause they keep getting their asses kicked. So, there are 2 groups of people, the bored dominating cheaters and the pissed off skilled players and neither one wants to play.

Like many people have said before me, hacking just takes the entire purpose out of Call of Duty: Black Ops online. All the people who hacked this game just so they could have all the guns, face paints, and other assorted things have taken all the fun out of earning the title of the 15th prestige. I think that hacking is pointless. I've only had Black Ops for about a week or 2 and I am 1st prestige level 6. I didn't sit in front of my ps3 the whole time. No, I went to school, did my chores, and… Read more »

For those who think that it doesn't make the game less fun, because it's a skill vs. wanker pit-off, I say don't forget that hacking can be done against you as well as to improve the hacker's personal stats. Case in point: I was working hard at my 6th prestige the legitimate way on MW2. A hacker started asking people if they wanted to get ranked. I voiced over "no thanks". To which the hacker said, "you'll take what I give you." He then ranked me 15th prestige and unlocked everything for me. I was irate and went off on… Read more »

When all is said and done I really don’t care if someone hacks, except when it affects MY profile-i started playing MW2 about a month ago. I had gotten to level 34 and got into a lobby where someone changed all of my weapons classes. I could do nothing to fix it, and had to create a whole new profile. Again, after getting to level 32 someone hacked my profile again and when I got out of the lobby I was level 70 and all weapons were available to me.I got BO a week ago and have only been in… Read more »

Come on everyone lets all clap for this no life person who lives in his mothers basement. I have a legit 15th prestige friend who has a life. He goes to work for 10 hours a day and still got leveled up very fast. If you are the one who made this hack, go get your own place, go to the gym, and GET A GF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what it was about yesterday but evergame i was in i ran into hackers on black opps and MW2. There were guys trying to sell me the hacks. I had a kd ratio of 2.29 and it went to a 2.23 in one day. I am disgusted at this i build my player up the way i am supposed to and some hackers come along and just destroy it. And to those that think 15th prestige is the only hack you are wrong. There are aimbot and many other hacks they use. I have ran into guys… Read more »

i honestly dont think this ruins the game so what when a 15th prestige gets owned it will be just that much more fun and really hacking it for the wepons isnt a big deal because come on we all know that leveling up in COD games doesnt take skill its just time consuming so if some one wants to do that and then play to get better than who really cares its not like it effects others in the least so everyone stop complaining and play the game.

As an avid COD player I have come up against people in matches that are boosting/hacking. A super sprint jump of a 3 story building, 8 shots to the chest and he doesn't drop against my commando at point blank range is ridiculous. Personally I could care less what level your combat record says, because when you play against me i am guaranteed to come find your camping a$$ sooner or later. A 101 killstreak just equals lame and those are the ones I am coming after every time I get on the sticks. As stated before your level does… Read more »

You people need to stop crying about hacking! Really? How in the world is this ruining the game? Do they get some sort of super powers that makes them invincible? Please! All they get is extra classes and emblems. There is no unfair advantage. If you're good then you're good regardless of which prestige you are. Prestige hacks are not unfair, what is unfair are glitches that are exploited by people. Like the invisibility glitch in MW2 where you can go outside of the map, run back in and be invisible. Now that is unfair! So are the elevator glitches… Read more »

Ok so it is a Game…Like all games they (Hackers) will find away to hack a game just to cheat or get the advantage. I suggest that like DVDs or Music CDs you put a lock on the hacking or if they hack it you can find out all the hackers and cancel there game play! Just saying!

Don't forget, a lot of cheaters are just paying to cheat. And they are doing more than leveling up. Remember that chopper mowing you down over and over again as you spawn? He's up there watching you, what direction your looking and everything. autoaim, easily shoot through stuff, etc. Those are the hackers that suck. But just quit and jump to another server. quit whining. Can't do anything about it.

Personally I don't care about people hacking Prestiges. They gain nothing really but extra classes. Sure your Ak can be golden, but hell my plain one can still pwn the shit out of yours. Hackers do this to either gain attention or do it for a challenge. This is why i'm not one of those whiners who cuss at the hackers. I know they just feed off of the attention. Though it's still not fair or justified to people who are hardcore gamers. I like the idea of auto-banning anyone who jumps prestiges it makes it alot easier to keep… Read more »

Personally, hacking prestiges does not bother me very much. What exactly do they gain from hacking there prestige? Extra clases is the only positive thing in my opinoin. Sure you can have a golden Ak, Dosen't mean my plain one cant pwn the shit out of you. People that hack generally either do it for a challenge or for attention. So don't bitch and cuss at them in the lobby when you see them, they live off of that. They just want to be the center of attention and have people ask them to hack for them or say WOW… Read more »

hackers think they have done well and achieved something in the game by getting 15 prestige in 1 day, but they are clearly useless at the game. I dont understand why people hack, if you dont play the game that often, just dont prestige. Hackers are much more sad than the legit as they spend all there time looking to download the latest hacks. If you buy a game to have completed in 1 hour. and not go on it again. I suppose they do it to try and prove something. But Owell let them get on with it, It… Read more »

well my concern is that they are not doing anything about it.. Its like they are ok with it.. Look at the leader board at black ops..hackers are all in top and they are still playing.. Seriously. they have failed so pissed that i wasted my money! I gotta tell you this.. that i will never buy treyarch game again.. their sound, graphics and the game itself is not good.. I liked MW2 lot better so much smoother ! You could play with your clan! Our clan still plays MW2!

If it was an aim bot hack or see enemies through walls hack I would understand but a prestige hack? I mean come on, seriously? Your a bunch of whiners if you ask me. You see, some people don't have the time or patience to get that far without getting frustrated, bored, or both. Besides, all there doing is unlocking stuff, in no way does it effect gameplay whatsoever.

HEY AWSOME i LoVe the HACK BUT THE GAME SUCKS anyway you can only use one claymore and the warlord perk doesn't let you use 2 atachments when you use granade launcher with anything else and also the SERVERS are CRAPY they screwed up the CALL OF DUTY FRANCHiSE. PS IT'S THE WORST CALL OF DUTY VERSION ACTIVISION HAS MADE IT'S NOT FUN PLUS GRAFICS & SOUNDS ARE TERRiBLE SO THE ONLY GOOD THING IT HAS IS THIS HACK MAYBE if you could use 2 claymores and SCAVENGER PERK could reload and better server maybe people wouldn't look for hacks

Sometimes i am sad i quit playing FPS online at arround 2002…
… and then i get reminded why i quit in the first place.

If people would simply boycott any games that are this easily hacked, i am sure companies would start using *serious* security measures to prevent it.

What happens, though, is games getting 9.0/10 scores in reviews for their "online experience".

Okay guys, to the people who are gonna complain, this hack has only been split screen tested. According to special people I know, they will not release the patch modifier .ff's until at least 6-8 months after the game has come out. Reason being, 1. Hackers enjoy the game too and don't want to get fucked over by their own work. 2. They do not want Treyarch to try to patch this and know that it will take months before they "slacken" on their community support because they are working on the next game. I do not provoke or support… Read more »

So I have a question? Why does everyone saids it ruins it for everyone, if some one hacks there account it doesn’t make them better players or anything like that, it just gives them cool emblems and titles ect… But in no way it ruins the fun for all the rest of us, like I said hacking the game for prestige 15 doesn’t make them better players.

"What's the point", "why do that", etc.
Don't you realize that for some people its a challenge. A new and widely expected game comes out and within a few hours they crack it. Its self-satisfying. I'm not defending the hacker(s) who did it, I'm just saying that there are different reasons for doing that. Maybe it was done from competition. Who knows.

Personally, I don't give a rats a$$ about it. Even with Prestige 15, you can get insanely penetrated by a Level 1 Player.

It's text-book attention seeking behaviour. Look at all of you, enabling them. They LIKE this attention, it is part of a ritualistic need to gain status. Stop elevating them. Like the IT Security guy mentioned, if they were any good they wouldn't be wasting their efforts on new code (or maybe they are honing their skills in preparation but that's conjecture and I won't stand for it). In what way have they ruined the game? They haven't suggested that YOU do it as well…besides, maybe they can't be bothered boosting when this shortcut presented itself so nicely?

I think hacking is cool so you actually have a life instead of coming home from school and playing it all night or skipping school to becom 15th prestige

thats a fact but :

People that DID the hack will have a life for fucking sure cuz after some time they'll get bored 😀

YES I LOVE HACK 😀

neatgamer117
neatgamer117

surely the whole point of the game though is to play and enjoy. Not to get 15 prestige and wank over it. Your ranking and prestige level is just a reflection of how much you play the game. It doesn’t reflect how good you are as a player. Take a trueskill system like reach or fifa. That is based on skill not length of time played. So there is no point hacking cod apart from to kill off your account on that game. No more challenges to earn and such. Sad bastards i say.
