Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is set to hit retail shelves tomorrow (November 13). In order to make sure everyone plays nice, Treyarch has released a list of offenses that could get you banned.
According to Now Gamer, most of the stuff that can get you booted from online play is fairly routine. Hacking the game is going to get you in serious trouble, as will glitching or boosting. In short, play the game as the developers intended and you should stay out of trouble.
However, playing Black Op 2 by the rules won’t keep you from getting banned if you let the expletives fly when things get tough. In fact, Treyarch says that “any user who is found to use aggressive, offensive, derogatory or racially charged language is subject to penalty.”
When creating your in-game Emblem, it’s best to err on the side of caution. According to PSX Extreme, crafting something offense, vulgar, or racially insensitive will get you banned.
If you find yourself getting in trouble while playing Black Ops 2 online, then you could wind up getting booted from multiplayer servers for a length of time. How long you’re gone depends greatly upon your offense; those who hack the game probably are’t going to get banned for the same period of time as someone who accidentally drops the F-bomb one too many times.
This is how Treyarch explains the banning system:
“A minor offense is one in which no quantifiable damage has been done to another user or the game community at large. An extreme offense is one in which a player has caused detriment to other users or has organized large groups of users to commit additional offenses.”
The company’s “Security & Enforcement Police” can be found on the official website. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will arrive on shelves tomorrow. Are you currently waiting in line to get the next installment of the popular first person shooter?
