ATTN Activision And Infinity Ward: MW3 Might Have Been Hacked

Youtuber iWesTCoastiN has posted a video that, if true, signals a disturbing turn of events for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players. Joining a Team Deathmatch on the Resistance map (Paris, BTW) on XBLA, he noticed that everyone in the lobby, including himself as you see, was running like they were, in his words, “on meth”. I’m willing to speculate that maybe this is some kind of glitch – after all, it isn’t like the launch of MW3 and especially COD Elite hasn’t been glitchtastic – but if it isn’t, then it means that MW3 has been hacked. Here’s the video he uploaded:

Just to put that into perspective, remember what happened to Black Ops after the PS3 hack? That sucked, right? So, Infinity Ward, if you’re listening (er, reading), have a look. Because it would suck if I were to find myself unable to play multiplayer.

UPDATE: It’s also true that this might be a problem of someone jtagging their Xbox and somehow evading detection by XBLA. Either way, lame.

OK, fine, I admit it. I already get completely owned. By my nephew. Who is 8. Years old. Yeah, I kind of suck. But still, hacking MW3 is bad!

You’ve been had…
Look at the time in the lower left hand corner – if this really were a bug or hack the seconds would progress normally. This is just a vid of some dude speeding up his frames after importing his video to a video editor.

Rather bull they will fix exploits like that they can see, but won’t address aimbots, wallhacks, ESP, being sold/subscribed to on PC.

Bullcrap the time in the left corner as Anthony said is going faster than normal. Infinity Ward will take much much longer to hack
