While searching for TDM lobbies yesterday i was taken to a hacked lobby. Three things happened...
1. I got promoted to Level 60
2. Everytime i get a kill i earn a squad point
3. My score in FFA is ridiculously high
I dont want all this and want to get my profile reset please. How do i do that?
Will only get banned if he/she deliberately took advantage of glitch. Bans are investigated to sort out the perps from the innocent. .
At the moment there is no way to have your stats reset. All the relevant security teams would be looking into the matter of modded lobbies. I'm sure at some stage there will be a pathway for your stats to be reset. Activision might put out a fill-in reset form. In the mean time - just be patient.
** Remember - if you realize that you have entered a modded lobby - leave immediately!!! Turn off your console.
The last thing you want is to have your account banned for taking advantage of a glitch.
You might want to try different game modes out. From what Ive heard Dom and TDM are most affected.
How do you know you've entered a modded lobby? I've also read somewhere you should not leave the lobby because changes to your profile will be saved permanently. You should just turn off your console.
If you notice high jumping
if you notice a couple of gamers with brigh/different coloured gamertags
if you notice too many points being awarded per kill
if you notice anything suspicious ..... Full stop.... Bug out of game
Turning off your console instead of exiting lobby normally is probably best bet,,, but not a guarantee unfortunately.
Do not engage with the lobby, do not engage with any messages from modders/hackers.
Please do not accept game invites from gamers you don't know.
deja vu... high jumping and gamers with coloured gamertags. This is exactly what I experienced back in the days of MW2. Then my account was hacked & prestiged (which I had to create a new account since sony could not do anything about it) as well as adding [C**T] at the start of my gamertag (sounds familiar to anyone?). So why are these problems coming up again? 400 + hours on BO2 i never seen any hacked lobbies. It all makes me think this game is still based on old code.
Any plans to use dedicated servers? They might be using some dedicated servers for matchmaking but it looks like the game is still running on traditional p2p architecture. Am I wrong?
Create a new PSN user account and play on that until "fixed"... 7 days on and I'm still waiting so it will take ages IMO... contact Activision its all you can do right now.
What is the coincidence of joining a "hacked" lobby in the games searching criteria?
