2,500 Players Banned From Cheating in MW2
Ban hammer hits MW2 Steam players.
As is always the case with PC gaming, there's always a greater population that'll be able to find cheats. The latest juggernaut Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 isn't immune to such a population, despite the calls for a boycott, and the folks at Infinity Ward and Valve have worked hard to weed out the first round of cheaters.
According to Ryan Bowling of Infinity Ward's Twitter, a Steam ban hammer has come down on about 2,500 Modern Warfare 2 cheaters.
"Top men are on it. In fact, the Steam ban hammer is coming down on about 2,500 confirmed #MW2 cheaters on PC today," Bowling wrote on his Twitter.
While the first Modern Warfare game used Punkbuster as its anti-cheat software, Modern Warfare 2 latches onto Valve's VAC system. Infinity Ward believes that this will deliver a better, more cheat-free experience for gamers.
For those of you who are playing Modern Warfare 2 on the PC, how's the fairness of play in your neck of the woods?
