Sorry if this has already been post but I couldn't see it in any of the threads.

Has anyone check the leaderboard recently? I'm looking at the top of the list for scores and I think someone has hacked it somehow.

Some guy called QuantumForce has a score of 1723826928 after just over 3 minutes of play! Unless this a massive **** up on IW's part or a glitch I think he has actually hacked the game somehow.

Anyone care to explain? :confused:

Boosting / hacking, whatever it is exactly, it's going on. I personally think the return of the Cage Match game mode was a bad idea, however in terms of kill streaks the Cage Match game mode doesn't make much of a difference. Also domination is a key source of boosting. However I haven't played Domination yet, so whether or not the Domination game mode has a time limit or not is unknown to me at this time. If there is no time limit, however, boosting is most likely occurring in that game mode among all others [based on how things were in past Call of Duty titles].

I'd suggest doing like I've began to do: Ignore the first few pages of the leaderboards. Though you may find a few legit players up there, a majority of them have either boosted, hacked, or cheated in some way or another.

I'm actually quite proud that only one person has messed with the accuracy stat so far. Giving them a 400% or so accuracy. Modern Warfare [1]'s accuracy leaderboards were a mess by the time Modern Warfare 2 released.

This has happened on COD4, WaW, and now MW2. I don't think they will fix it either because they didn't on any of the other games. It's really stupid that they just leave it there.

Justice at last. :D Glad Infinity Ward is taking action. Even though there are still plenty of cheaters, that one was just plain obvious.

That's just plain out ridiculous. Infinity Ward can't even keep him at the bottom? :bang:

What do those suckers do to hack the leaderboard? IMO it is quite pathetic to do that in order to be on top. Don't they have some dignity? I guess not...

@Schaffin

What do you mean by "boosting"? BTW, there is a time limit in Domination.
