The 6 Ways Modern Warfare 2 Cheaters Cheat

Modern Warfare 2 is fun. No point trying to deny it; the joy of ‘pwning’ some ‘noobs’ across the ether is brilliantly addictive. But, you’ve got to take the good with the bad. And just like how the vibrant streets of Rio De Janeiro paint a pretty picture, underneath there lies a dark and seedy underworld; the world of the cheaters. Here are 5 non-console specific, non-hacks that you’re likely to encounter in a random game:

5. Dual Account Stabbing:

You may not have come across this one. But we did. Picture the scene – 10 players slugging in out in Hardcore HQ Ricochet Pro, fighting through the narrow streets and tiny buildings in Rundown. But, where are the other two players? Well, one player who’s name we’ll call Player X was on the militia’s side with 25 kills and no deaths, while the Rangers’ bottom player Player X was on 0 kills and 25 deaths. Something was fishy. Sure enough, we poked our head round the door of an out of sight building to find one player spawning, throwing down a Tactical Insertion, then getting stabbed by the other, and repeating. The nuke came within a minute. You might not see this in every match, but the fact you either have the same guy on two different consoles or a friend who’s so devoted he allows himself to be killed for an entire match means that rather than being annoying; this is just a little bit sad. Ragequit Level: 5/10

4. Camping:

“Oh, nice work, man; you got two fast kills – maybe you want to take a rest in the quiet spot over there, regroup your thoughts and reload. Good work, now on you jog.” That’s how it’s meant to be. Obviously, everyone camps to an extent, but it’s usually just half a minute or so, and a cheap kill or two. But some people just can’t let go. Spending 10 minutes looking at exactly the same spot, never moving, might not sound like fun to you and us, but for these freaks, they get their kicks from being static, slowly snatching cheap kills until they get a nice little killstreak. If you get shot in the back by one of these fools, don’t give them the satisfaction of going back for more. Ragequit Level: 7/10

3: Riot Shield Groups:

Riot Shields aren’t very fun. Sure, you’ll use them once or twice, and if you’ve got a friend online, you can pair up and become quite a team with one. Unfortunately, they carry a darker side. Two players on the same team find a quiet spot in the middle of nowhere, one gets out a riot shield, and the other plugs 200 rounds from an LMG into it. Using One Man Army, they swap classes and the other player takes the other role. Those with the riot shield will gain a hefty bonus in post-match bonuses, without one single death. Once again, you can usually leave these cheaters to themselves, but it’s sill infuriating to think that they’ll reach Level 67 much earlier than you and unlock Model 1887s… Ragequit Level: 6/10

2: Akimbo FMJ Model 1887s:

It’s amazing to think that this is still a problem even after a patch that was devoted to stopping it. The Model 1887 is a good, if a little cumbersome, secondary shotgun unlocked at level 67. With Akimbo, they become incredibly powerful, but still kinda ‘legal’ close-range killers. Add the FMJ, and you’ve got quick-fire, quick-reload double powered medium range unstoppable über tubes capable of killing someone one-shot through a solid wall. Every time you see one cheater scamper around the map random-firing everywhere and getting a shed-load of kills, you’ll be incandescent with rage. The worst bit, however, is that the scum who use these are really bad with them, slow to fire and a little bit thick. Figures. Ragequit Level: 10/10

1: Danger Close Pro + One Man Army:

Kudos to those who get 120 kills with Danger Close on. It took a while, but you stuck at it, so well done. Have a cookie. However, death is the only suitable punishment for those who combine their new-found perk of choice with One Man Army. This means that the player has grenade launchers that kill people from miles away, and when they run out of that, they can just swap classes and do it again. Then, when they get 7 kills, the incredibly overpowered Harrier Airstrike guarantees them 3+ kills, meaning in no time they’ve got a Chopper Gunner. They might as well cover our screen in actual, physical puke than spray grenades about and kill players who are perfectly distanced from it’s explosion. Maybe IW will create a patch to solve this. Most likely, it’ll do as much use as calming down a bull with the Chinese flag. Ragequit Level: Over 9000/10

BONUS ROUND!  Care Package Stealing:

Listen, buddy. We worked hard for our care packages. We killed 4 people, and we want our reward. So don’t hover like an over-eager raven and try steal it when it lands. It’s even worse when your Emergency Airdrop hits the floor – trying to soak up all those green boxes without team-mates raiding them is almost more trouble than it’s worth.

    While I was playing Free For All the other day, i came across #5. Two players were taking turns throwing knives at each other while throwing down the tactical insertion.. 1 of them kept getting harriers, pavelow, etc every minute! Such a shame that people have to play like that.

  2. I was playin ground war TD on high rise and this dude managed to kill me from one building to the other, WITHOUT even looking at me, AND shot me with intervention whilst looking at a monitor in one of the offices!!! that dude was the top player and i know why, i just left the game.

    Well I play mw2 a lot and people camp so much. I mean yea I camp for maybe 30seconds or something but never for more than a min. It gets so anoying when people camp up on the roof of the building by the barber shop and knife you. Then your in the upstairs of the laundry place and they take out there intervention and snipe you. So all I’m saying is that if you camp your a noob and you SUCK!!!!!!!

  4. Just got online with MW2 this weekend and the speed stabbing is unbelievably annoying. They run so fast the claymores don’t even work. Plus, they stab me from across the room. Just takes all the fun out of the game. I wish they had a room with zero extra abilities and just the weapons. No harriers, no marathon, no fast running, no extra damage, etc. Unfortunately, all they have is one room without killstreaks, which does help…a little.

  5. I hate it when people hack the game. I actually got on a map taday, i think it was highrise, where we were jumping like 100 ft in the air. And the whole other team had fireballs comeing out of their guns. I couldn’t take two steps without dying. I was getting snipped by people on the other side of the map who weren’t even looking in my direction. It is really annoying.

    • I was playing the other day and the same thing happened to me it was terrible everyone was lumping 100ft in the air. who finds this entertaining they should be banned from playing online. one guy had A MP5 and was firing from inside a building through a wall and everyone was getting hit this is not fair all you hackers should just f*£k off.

  7. Yeah, I took a long break from MW2 hoping the cheaters would get bored. Nope, still dog f-ers running around knifing or double fisted shotty. This really screws up the realism the makers tried to build into the game. And I swear people are still using target bots or aim bots. I mean if someone randomly runs into you once in a while fine but when someone tracks you down like you have a screaming come kill me beacon on your head over and over again it’s pretty obvious bot hacks are still in use. Ban em all and get rid of some of the less real perks for the next one.

    i play mw2 and to say that its not right to set and snipe off a few guys is a bad thing i dont care who you are nood vet whatever youve done it and as far as i can tell none of you guys have a problem finding the guys that do it as far as the other cheats on this page well if you see them kill them dont let them set and cheat you and your team like that

  9. redwolf1st Says:

    i agree cheats make game not worth playing 1 game someone got 48 kills 10 mins only 16 players in game 8 each side something needs to be done

  10. I got 2 grenades and about 20shots on a guy y-day and he just turned around 1 shotted me with a gun… i mean seriously nobody can suck that bad that they need to cheat.. Its not that hard.. u aim and u shoot..

  11. randomperson Says:

    i think that only 2 of these r really cheats like the 1 stabbing someone they use ti then stabbing them again for killstreak rewards and the 2 riot sheild ppl taking turns getting exp but camping is not bad because how r snipers gonna snipe if there in the open and also its really not bad for akimbo plus shotguns because if mw2 put it in its fair and so wat if u get a stolen care package its better to share but im not sayingu shouldnt have any im saying let ur teamates have 1 or 2 as long as u get some too unless its only 1 care package and not airdrop now if think danger close 1 plus 1 man army is cheating its more like just slightly unfair and if u really think the fast ppl stabbing is heating its called a tactic that u need to just accept

    • randompersontheII Says:

      Just shut up,this game is really fucked up with noob tubers….like you!!!

    • kiddofmortem Says:

      dude seriously, the only thing i can stand on here at all is camping, but if your for ex: one man army 1 go out and use it 2 dont get a sniper and camp for the entire game, its anoying as f*#}ing he\\ and if you do all anyones got 2 do is get a RPG and bomb your a$s. my origanal shotgun is better than the double akimbo crap, and i havent ran across the roit shield possi catz yet, + dont bi+<h on other ppl ho comment
