MW2 “Rocket Glitch” Gets Players Banned

by on December 3, 2009

Been playing some Modern Warfare 2 lately? Seen any one exploding upon death? If your answer is yes then you may have fallen victim to the first notable glitch in Infinity Wards latest shooter. The glitch involves using a frag or Semtex grenade in conjunction with a rocket launcher which turns players in to “suicide bombers” exploding upon death. I experienced opposing players using the glitch which I have to say is very annoying, you may laugh the first time it happens but it soon gets old when any close range kill equals a death for you.

If you have not yet seen the glitch you can check it out here, we do not advise that you use the glitch as it can get you a 24 hour – 2 week ban on xbox live and more importantly its cheating! Stephen Toulouse aka stepto cleared up the situation with a couple of tweets earlier today;

While IW works on getting the MW2 glitch fixed, people we catch using it will receive suspensions from LIVE. Play fair everyone. :>

For those asking, cheating suspensions are usually 24 hours for first offense. But egregious cheating can be 2 weeks!

So there you have it, Infinity Ward is working on the problem but until then if you are playing online and come across a glitcher reporting them and leaving the game is really the only thing you can do
