Infinity Ward Going to War with Modern Warfare 3 Cheaters

Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling says that the studio has learned some hard lessons about online cheating from previous Call of Duty games, and is taking extraordinary measures to make sure that there is little (or at least less) of it in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. To that end, Bowling says that MW3 will have dedicated teams monitoring online activity and dealing with anyone foolhardy enough to cheat.

The teams of cheater hunters won't be the game's only line of defense though; Bowling says Modern Warfare 3 will also feature improved code that checks for players using hacks in the game and will take advantage of Steam's VAC  (Valve Anti-Cheat) technology.

"There's been a lot of work put into it. I can't go into specifics," said Bowling. "On a general high level area there's so much more stuff that we've locked down and made less accessible than we had before."

"It's also about our ability to take action when stuff is wrong so we've done a lot of work in our ability to update the game more quickly and efficiently than we have before," he added.

Modern Warfare 3 deploys to PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 on November 8.
