By now you have either heard about the Javelin glitch or have experienced someone using it while playing Modern Warfare 2, whatever the case may be I do have a suggestion for you do not use it yourself. The Microsoft Police are out in full force and are not taking kindly to glitchers as seen in Stephen Toulouse (stepto) Twitter comments about glitching:
While IW works on getting the MW2 glitch fixed, people we catch using it will recieve suspensions from LIVE. Play fair everyone. :>
Microsoft is pulling no punches with this latest unfair advantage people are using in MW2, but I do have one concern and that is the punishment you will receive if caught:
For those asking, cheating suspensions are usually 24 hours for first offense. But egregious cheating can be 2 weeks!
A 24 hour suspension just doesn’t seem fitting for glitching. Maybe it’s because I have been in a couple of matches and got real angry while people where using the glitch or what, but I think they should be suspended just a little longer.
Infinity Ward is aware of the situation and is taking this very serious as they are working on a fix as we speak. Here’s what Robert Bowling (fourzerotwo)had to say on Twitter:
As you can see this does not only affect Xbox 360 players but also PS3. So here’s to Infinity Ward and Microsoft for taking glitching as serious as they are.
