Modern Warfare 2 Wackiness

Posted by HumanityPlague (251 posts) -

So, I like to play Modern Warfare 2 on PC.  It's not perfect, but is still fun.  I am (well...was...) only level 17, noob-toobing my way up the rankings.  I'm really not good at the game, and I usually average a 1:1 kill ratio.  So, I may kill 7 guys in a match, but get killed 7 times.  Some maps are different, but my ratio is fairly consistent, dipping when I get frusterated, or dealing with good players.

So, I got into a match a little while ago, with a group of people.  Selected my class, and spawned.  A curious thing popped up on the screen, "PRESS F5 FOR MENU", with it flashing.  Having never seen that option before, I hit F5, and it popped up this menu:

Level 70
All skills unlocked
AIM BOT
Accolade unlocked
Kill modifier

....yeah...that's new.

I scrolled (as much as I could) down to the "Accolade unlocked" and pressed it.  The guy running the map/server, was literally killing everyone within moments of spawning.  He had infinite airstrikes, bombs, ammo, etc.  So after about 3 minutes, the match ended, because his team one.  Got back to the lobby, and saw I had 4,000 of each accolade added.  Huh....

So, got into another match, and selected level 70.  Well, got out of the match again, after 2 minutes, then the guy nuked us, which was a first for me.  And..yeah, now I'm level 70.  It's funny how I selected a normal match, and got thrown in a match with a hacked server/cheat menu.  I would never have gotten to level 70 normally, but now that "I am", it's decent.  I missed having Claymore mines at least.

That happened in my second match during that free weekend of MW2 on steam a long time ago.  Well, it was a little different.  You just got trillions of xp for your first kill, so you automatically got 70.

No dedicated servers = pile of crap. I skipped it entirely on the PC for that reason alone.

@loopy_101: It's still fine, or at least playable. I didn't like Black Ops though, it ran like garbage on my PC.

Black Ops is a HORRIBLE console to PC port. The amount of memory it chews at is absolutely ludicrous. Before I made my ram expansion, I had to play the game without shadows to avoid the game stuttering on me too much while online. Even with my 3GB boosted DDR2 Ram it struggles to play without chugging every now and then. All worth it for dedicated servers and mod support though, I wouldn't have it any other way.
