Call of Duty: Black Ops 500 kills-spree video on YouTube gets Activision’s Attention: Players get banned for boosting

March 1, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

Have you seen the video of players making 501 kills in the Call of Duty Black Ops game with only 8 deaths on YouTube? Well, if you have and are interested in following the same path, the best to do right now is to drop the idea! That is because even the guys at Activision have seen the video and have banned the players involved in it as it is deemed as a form of boosting.

If you take a look at the video, that has been quickened for your viewing comfort, the player’s team seemed to have the spawn points of the opposing team on a complete lock-down, and the players being killed only had time to die after being re-spawned. This and the players also seemed to have got considerable help from the guys on the other team as well.

Now, this seems like obvious advantage and Activision sees it as a clear case of boosting. Hence they have banned the accounts of the players involved in an effort to stop others from attempting the same in the future. Seems like a fair call to us. Disagree? Can Activision do something to ensure that this problem does not reoccur?
