2,500 gamers banned on Modern Warfare 2

The first batch of cheaters in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been banned by Steam and Infinity Ward. Over 2,500 accounts have been blocked from connecting to the games multiplayer service. Infinity Ward’s Rob Bowling dramatically posted on Twitter “the Steam ban hammer is coming down” – and this proved to be not just an idle threat.

New anti cheat abilities were heavily promoted as a massive benefit for the game with a change from Punkbuster to Valve’s inhouse anti-cheat system VAC which offers a hack free experience for the gaming community. While it is nice to see VAC’s automatically banning these people it seems to be slower than alternatives, taking two weeks for example to hit the first batch of cheaters.

Infinity Ward and Steam are also working closely on the code to make it difficult for people to get online with warezed copies of the game, applying regular patches and updates that invalidate access to the iWnet matchmaking service.
