Treyarch’s list of no-nos for Call of Duty: Black Ops II was posted on the Call of Duty forums. The post noted that temporary bans can last between 48 hours to 2 weeks, and that permanent bans are, uh, PERMANENT. Here’s the basic gist of the list of things that can get you banned:

  • Modding/Hacking – running a modified version of game code or using a modified game profile
  • Pirated Content – acquiring Black Ops II illegally
  • Unsupported Peripheral Devices and Applications – using unsupported external hardware device or application with the game, such as lag switches, modded controllers, and IP flooders.
  • Boosting – colluding with others to exploit the game to gain XP, unlock items, and more.
  • Glitching – abusing an exploit in game code
  • Offensive Behavior – using offensive language or derogatory language
  • Offensive Emblems – creating an emblem with sexual images, foul language, racially offensive material, etc.
  • Offensive Live Streams or Unauthorized Live Stream Content – having offensive language or nudity in your live stream, unlicensed logos, music, movies, etc.

Steer clear of these offenses and you should be okay.
