I never hear anybody. The only time I ever heard anyone else was when a friend of mine and I were already in a private chat and when we signed on to play MP we could hear whomever was in the lobby talking-although it wasn't clear whether they could hear us. But when I go on by myself, it's radio silence. Is there a trick I don't know about?
It depends whether anyone playing has a mic plugged in or not. Outside of SnD / SnR people are pretty quiet. At least until they get annoyed. One of us got a rage message last night whilst playing HCTDM, so we popped into game chat to poke fun at the rager (he was madbr0). He asked for our addresses so he could come and fight us, before telling us it was 'only a game'. I guarantee you Schwapj, your stealth approach is going to attract many screaming NO-SKILL CAMPER messages. Enjoy them. Causing butthurt is one of the most enjoyable facets of this game, nothing puts the finishing touch on a great game like enemy tears
I know this is no longer front burner but for the sake of completeness, here is where I got the information:
And here is the exact quote:
"We have banned countless cheaters and with your help, we will ban countless more."
Snotnose, I have never seen a more relevant post than this. You're right to be suspicious. I don't think the game is QUITE as overrun with hackers than MW3 yet, but it's narrowing close. You see hackers being more successful in BO2 because the maps are smaller, so the hackers get more of a hold on players
- Aiming through walls
- Launching C4's and exploding them in players' faces before they get round the corner (happened to me today..)
- Grenading round corners
- Of course, pinpoint shooting through walls
Philla Killa, TRU11 etc. don't be pathetic - get real. Who gets 50 kills on a regular, consistent basis on Team Deathmatch? It's not impossible, but it is, quite frankly, extremely difficult on TDM, and with so many hackers it's almost impossible. With so many hackers, saying this is easy is being unrealistic, and unfair to normal/skilled players, and dismissing the rarity of such scores is almost supporting hackers, suggesting that hackers are free to roam about, because 'players easily/often get 50 kills'?? Get real.
We should be strong against pathetic players who use hacks.
Too many real players are getting it tough because of weak minds. Do not hide hackers - it's unfair.
Haven't seen a single cheater since Ghosts was released, I'm afraid. In fact, it's almost as if the game has gotten better now that some people have emigrated to Ghosts. You might think people are cheating now, but I suggest that you enjoy the experience while you can, because it won't take long until your favourite mode that isn't TDM is overrun by invisibility modders at 15th prestige in the only lobby you can find with it.
