PSA: How To Get Banned From Black Ops 2
Congratulations, shooter fans. You’ve just shelled out a ton of money for your copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, or at least if you did it officially, you’re either going home, or are about to do so. Prepare for awesomeness (or at least, a good version of the same old, same old.) But what if you want to get banned from the game? That’s a skill, right?
Luckily, we’re here to help. Treyarch has published the full range of reasons you might be banned from BLOPS2, and because we know how badly you want to be at the top of your game, we’ve reposted it in full. Please make a note of the following:
Modding / Hacking: Any user who runs a modified version of game code or uses a modified game profile is subject to penalty.
Pirated Content: Any user who illegally acquires Call of Duty: Black Ops II content is subject to penalty.
Unsupported Peripheral Devices and Applications: Any user who utilizes an unsupported external hardware device or application to interact with the game is subject to penalty. Unsupported peripheral devices and applications include but are not limited to modded controllers, IP flooders and lag switches.
Boosting: Any user who colludes with another user to exploit the game for the purpose of gaining XP, prestige, game score, weapon level, or in-game unlock is subject to penalty.
Glitching: Any user who abuses an exploit in game code or other established rule of play is subject to penalty. An example includes but is not limited to using a hole in the map geo to intentionally go outside of the map boundary.
Offensive Behavior: Any user who is found to use aggressive, offensive, derogatory or racially charged language is subject to penalty.
Offensive Emblems: Any user who creates an emblem with sexually gratuitous images, racially offensive material or foul language is subject to penalty.
Offensive Live Streams or Unauthorized Live Stream Content: Any user who is found to have offensive or unauthorized content in their live stream is subject to penalty. Offensive content includes but is not limited to foul language, racially charged language, and nudity. Unauthorized content includes but is not limited to unlicensed music, TV shows, movies and brand logos.
So yeah, don’t do any of this stuff, unless, of course, you want to find yourself banhammered. Hell, there’s probably an achievement for that, right?
