Treyarch Details What Can Get You Banned In Black Ops 2

Treyarch Details What Can Get You Banned In Black Ops 2

As a courtesy to the less than favorable players that will no doubt pollute the latest title from Treyarch, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, the development studio has released a list of ways that can and will get your banned. For most, this is common sense. Having a horse bent over a dinosaur is not something many of us want to see ; surprise. Along with Swastikas, animals having sex with each other was a huge issue in the original Black Ops and Treyarch is not going to stand for it this time around which is great, but what do you expect from a bunch of kids who see that they’re able to use a pickle in their emblem design?

Treyarch is even going to give the players we don’t like hate in Black Ops 2 multiple chances to get their act together and will have various levels of punishment; ranging from temporary bands to losing the ability to play online all together.

Here’s a list of what they’re going to be doing below. In my opinion, they’re all pretty fair and fit the crime just fine. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
