Big surprise: Modern Warfare 2 already hacked

Big surprise: Modern Warfare 2 already hacked photo



Have you had enough of Modern Warfare 2 coverage yet? Are you a vindictive PC gamer? If you answered "no" to the first question and "yes" to the second, you are now free to have a few quiet "I told you so" chuckles, because reports are coming in that Modern Warfare 2 on PC may already have been hacked wide open. And less than a day after the game has finally unlocked for people who preordered via Steam.

The video, embedded below, was posted on a website selling hacking tools for various games in the series. It shows several cheats in action during a multiplayer game, most of them position detectors and aimbots. 1up raises the possibility that this could all be an elaborate hoax, as some of the feats being performed could probably be done by a very skilled player. 

But if true, one of Infinity Ward's major selling points for IW.net - their console-style matchmaking service - has been more or less annihilated. At least with dedicated servers, admins and players were capable of manually kicking and banning known cheats and even altering code to lock them out.

This is just the first strike in the ongoing arms race. Steam and IW.net will retaliate, hackers will re-hack, and so on.

Any of you still planning to get the game on PC?

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation

Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their...more
