When a game is made, some fans make a point to find every single way to play as dishonestly as possible, and ultimately get hold of some way to implement them. Now it seems that the latest first-person shooter title ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’ is no different.
Per reports, it seems some people are even buying accounts with high Prestige ranks, impressive K/D (Kill to Death) ratios and more.
A Gamingbolt report describes the situation very clearly.
“Let’s say you’re a Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fan (we know what the follow-up question is but will show restraint on the matter). Let’s say you log into a match with your buddies and spot a Prestige Class player with a kill-death ratio of 5-0. Naturally, you get a little concerned but hell, screw that right? So you charge in and raise hell only to find said Prestige players dying repeatedly. After a while, and zero kills, he simply logs off. Hot shot prodigy having a bad day perhaps? It’s more likely that you just encountered some one who bought their way into Prestige,” stated the Gamingbolt report.
Users have been discussing the problem on Reddit. A Reddit user wrote that people “are basically paying others for altering their accounts to give them higher KD's, different titles, all weapon unlocks, etc. Kinda silly as the accounts are being banned, but I was wondering why we were running into so many MP's last night and guys with 4+ KD's dying 30+ times in a game.”
While there is no obligation to describe how people actually end up spending their money, there’s no point of achieving a high skill if the player clearly doesn’t know how to live up to that certain level.
So if anyone has encountered a high-level Prestige player with an upwards of 2.00 K/D but plays like a newbie, chances are they are not really good at the game and just paid someone else to buy the high level account, as opposed to chances of experiencing a bad day on the multiplayer map.
“Based on my experience, I've come across a few players like these. Just the past few days, I've met a Prestige Master online with a K/D of 5. Yep, you read that right; his K/D ratio was more than 5:1. But when we played, he can't do jack,” a Gameranx post states. “After a few minutes of struggling and going 0-5 or 0-7, he just left and quit. I'm not sure, but chances are that person is one of those people who bought their Prestige Master rank.”
