Infinity Ward's Robert “fourzerotwo” Bowling has revealed that the Modern Warfare 3 developer issued over 1600 bans to cheaters in the short space of time since the game's release. In a tweet, Bowling, said.
“Any attempt to cheat, hack, or glitch in #MW3 will not be tolerated. 1600+ bans issued. Updates in works. Please cont. to report offenders.”
IGN reports that once a cheater is verified, the banhammer is wielded to bring a proportional ban time, based on the severity of the cheating in question.
"Every ban [is] unique to the level of douchiness of the offense," Bowling said. "The greater the douche the greater the length. PermaDouche [is] possible."
