CoD Modern Warfare 3

And this weekend MW3 Double XP for all platforms, starts Friday at 2 am PST.

 

Update on the MW3 “De-Rank” Hacking Exploit

CoD Modern Warfare 3

An Infinity Ward gamedeveloper has given an update, via the official Activision forums, on the current status of combating the malicious attacks on the Modern Warfare 3 online servers; which was causing gamers to lose their rank.

Update on the MW3 “De-Rank” Hacking Exploit

“The emergency Title Update that went live a few days ago was to combat the recent wave of hack and mod attacks. We previously already released a hot-fix that prevented the spread of these virally through joining public matches. However, malicious individuals were sadly still using other propagation vectors to disseminate hacks, including one that could reset a player’s rank.

This TU #11 has tightened our security on these vectors. To be safe, while we monitor the situation, please continue to IGNORE friend invites from anyone you do not know !

Anyone who has suffered from a rank reset please contact Activision with your GamerTag. We shall be reverting all victims to the rank they attained pre-attack.

We are taking all available measures to prevent future hacks of this nature. We take the sanctity of the game experience very seriously."

So the Xbox 360 version of MW3 has been under attack by modded lobbies to derank players and such; you can read all about that here. The Xbox patch 1.11 removed the infected lobbies which were using theater mode exploits...

When you fire up Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox 360, you’ll be greeted to a 5MB mandatory update to install. Off course (!) the official patch notes haven’t been released, but this Xbox TU update is not similar to the 1.11 patch which the PlayStation 3 gamers received on March 27th. The PS3 patch was intended to integrate the platform’s newest MW3 Elite map, Overwatch, with the MW3 game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Community - April 20 > BLACKOUT !

Hacking in Modern Warfare 3 is getting worse.... Infected lobbies

Hacking in Modern Warfare 3 is getting worse. Infected Lobbies

A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer from Infinity Ward made this announcement :

A modding group created a viral mod, which we prevented from spreading within twelve hours yesterday. Sadly, in ‘protest’ at our ability to disable this they are now inviting player’s to private matches where they reset their stats. We have a fix for this in the works and are backing up player’s stats so that we can restore them if needed next week. In the meantime avoid friend invites from ANYONE not on your friend list.

So some smart bad dudes hacked Modern Warfare 3 and now the MW3 gamers have to deal with infected or hacked lobbies.

The hacked lobbies are trying to decrease players’ ranks. Most MW3 infected lobbies are also “slow-mo” infected, so basically time is slowed down to be about 3 real-time seconds for 1 in-game second (similar to right before a M.O.A.B. goes off or the final second of the game winning killcam). Everything you do is in slow motion expect for when you turn around. 

If you get into an infected lobby, then your game is carrying the infection after you leave. After being infected, the only way to get others infected is to host a game in  private matches. (Matchmaking got already "fixed" during the weekend.)

Lucky for all : Once you run into a hacked lobby, all you have to do is to back out of the lobby and turn off your xbox. This will reset the infection and clear you of it. You can back out and try to find a new game but if you are infected and you become the host you infect others and by then it is, off course, too late.

The IW developers have stated that they ”are working actively on fixing this issue and also backing up player stats so that they can reset those affected by this malicious behaviour.” 

Although only the Xbox is mentioned in above article; same hack is used for PC version of MW3.

Update on the MW3 “De-Rank” Hacking Exploit

There's a glitch in MW3 Black Box & this weekend Double XP

There's a glitch in MW3 Black Box & this weekend Double XP

So a glitch found in the Modern Warfare 3 Black Box map. (MP map from the third content drop... )

A fix is on the way and a BAN for all XBOX ELITE PREMIUM SUBSCRIBERS when exploiting this glitch.

But this weekend it will be Double XP for everyone !  So on ALL gaming platforms. Enjoy !

Update :

On the moment the Double XP weekend started the Xbox Modern Warfare 3 servers went down, spoiling the Friday night entertainment plans for millions of fans. But the service is now back up and game publisher Activision Blizzard made a peace offering to those who are angry about this. So Double XP going for a bit longer than just the weekend to make up for lost time.
