Watching theater mode might help you answer your questions.
There have been times I've suspected cheaters as seemingly impossible acts were taking place. I watch the game in theater and have always been disproved. Also learned some really helpful tactics.
Every COD I've played lags. Future titles will also lag.
Question: What do you classify as cheating in BO2?
Crazy thing is I only got my PS3 in October 2011 and I was given MW2 and Black Ops. Black Ops 2 was bought for me although I did say I didn't want it but out of politeness I play it. I have only ever bought 1 CoD game and that was MW3 which is total ass waste. Anyway I still think MW2 was the best and ran better than the other CoD games.
Back on topic:
So if I can get 10-16 kills 5 out of 12 games with a Ballistic Knife in Core TDM ( I have once got 23 kills) then why can't someone that lives, breathes, poops and sleeps CoD with good map and game knowledge get 50+ kills with a gun?
The tracking is just Auto Aim. I played it with Auto Aim off for 3 weeks and it was a good laugh because once I turned Auto Aim back on I was blitzing around owning like a God if there is one.
I've got around 30k kills in this game with a 1.39 K/D ratio and have NEVER seen ANYONE get anything close to 50 kills in a TDM game. Usually anything over 20 is a good game and over 30 is pretty rare. I don't know what you guys are playing, but we're having very different experiences.
I play Ground war quite offen, or something like that anyway. It is a great game mode since you get a fair amount of XP from it even if you lose. He was going on about how everybody cheats at the game, which I beg to differ.
He plays Kill Confirmed, not TDM. If the match is one-sided, its not uncommon to see someone hit the 50+ kills mark.
My all-time TDM high is 54 kills in BO2. Just today I had a 40 kill game in Turbine. It's a matter of outsmarting your enemies and clever map maneuvering. Yes, it's rare but it's not that rare.
You have to understand that the people who are responding here may very well be the cream of the crop. After all, one who truly is a cheater is not going to risk being exposed, and when exposed, truly exposed as a lying hypocrite, by refuting your assertions in this forum and then going online and cheating, hacking, and boosting it up. On the other hand, you also have to consider how condescending a lot of these answers are--how dare you question the very questionable veracity of a 50-1 KDR in a game where cheating is so utterly rampant? With over 25 million games in circulation, even if only 1% of the players cheat, that's a whopping quarter of a million people. And since cheaters are likely to play more than an average amount of time--as their results are so much more positive and, to their way of thinking, "fun"--than the merely casual player, the odds of getting at least one cheater in a 12-player lobby are substantial. But again, maybe you just stink, as these respondents claim (and, by implication, you should just stop playing, because unless you too can go 50-1, you don't belong in the rarefied atmosphere of overgrown children who have amassed their skills by basically wasting their time/doing absolutely nothing actually productive with their lives. Of course, they also fail to recognize that if you are going 50-1, they no longer are, since someone has to die 50 times for you to achieve such a score).
Since September I'm assuming you've logged a decent number of hours playing, but here are some clues that you may want to consider. If you watch the killcam and your opponent gets a headshot on one of your teammates and then his gun instantaneously (i.e., no transitional movement between players) locks onto your own head and he kills you, that is an aimbot. If you are running Assassin and Silencer, and your opponent waltzes around a corner--where you know there is no other line of site from another place on the map including a rooftop--and kills you without surveying his surroundings, that's a wallhack. When the score is 0-0 in a game and you die under an Advanced UAV, that's boosting. Those are just examples, there are many more instances of cheating going on.
Also, if your problems seem to multiply on the weekends, you are not imagining things. The people who responded to you on this board have responded like adults and probably are to some degree or another. The animals you are likely worried about are the teenagers who are actually too young to be playing this game but whose parents can not be bothered to supervise their gaming habits. I've reported over 400 people for cheating and most of them have come on weekends and holidays, when no one has any homework.
Oddly enough, when you empty a full clip into someone's back and they don't die, that's usually a lag issue and not a God mode hack (which would be very difficult to hide). You can hardly blame the other player for that, although I'm sure plenty of players out there are manipulating their connection latency as well. All in all, I'm totally with you. This game has had the crap hacked out of it. I know, I've looked. I've tried to download both wallhacks and aimbots, with no success. But I got in late and there's also no way I'm going to authorize any software downloads or take any surveys where I enter personal information to people whom I already know are, by definition, cheaters. But for some people humiliation is the goal, not a fun time, and they'll do anything, including take a chance on ruining their parents' computer, to get an edge. They're also not making six figure salaries or getting laid, so this is what they have. You can always hope that Karma, as well as a steady diet of Doritos and Coca-Cola, will cause them the carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, and heart disease that they deserve.
I'm not the cream of the crop by any means, yet with the right scorestreak setup, a good dose of luck and a bad enough lobby its really not difficult to hit 50+. I hit a 50+ game on Drone running UAV/AGR/Stealth Chopper. The enemy team was too dumb to take out any of the scorestreak rewards. I've had monster Swarm games where no-one put on Blind Eye, games where the UAV/VSAT/Escort Drone cycled itself violently, games where I was up in a Lodestar and the enemy team ran around outside without cold blooded. Its really not outlandish at all to get a 50 kill game in KC on BO2, not at all.
I must also add that your post comes off as, well, rather salty. Just because someone can put up a 50 KDR game every now and again makes them a no-life? Ok mate
