Treyarch: Black Ops Exploiters Are "Douchebags"

Treyarch's game design director has some colorful words for the exploiters taking advantage of Black Ops glitches.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is evidently not without its share of early bugs that online players are taking advantage of, but Treyarch wants everyone to know it's watching. In a recent post on the Black Ops forums, Treyarch design director David Vonderhaar told exploiters of these bugs to think twice or face possible consequences.

He also called them "douchebags." Vonderhaar's opinion is that the players showing off glitches are just trying to become "internet nerd famous" and that the best thing to do is ignore them. "Internet hysteria from normal people is exactly what they want and that's how many people reacted today," he wrote.

Though he says he'd personally ban exploiters if he could, Vonderhaar points out that Treyarch has a "well-managed" team that is working to take care of the game's issues instead. "We said we would support the game," he continued. "We are going to support it."

Treyarch recently asked gamers to report any Black Ops glitches that are found to help get rid of early issues as soon as possible. Vonderhaar wants players to know that Treyarch cares, but it'd rather fix bugs than talk about them on forums to popularize exploiters. "I'm not going to talk about it publicly," he added. "We are disinterested in making mini-celebrities out of douchebags. You better think twice before you glitch. You never know who in your game doesn't like glitchers who reports you and saves the game in their File Share and tells us about it."

With the ability of players to save screenshots and video of matches, it's less smart than ever to use bugs to get ahead in Black Ops. You don't want to be a "douchebag," right?
