Just a small note to say that all information about the upcoming game Black Ops 3 will be added to my blog over here. The game is being created by Treyarch and it is set to be released in November of 2015.

Buttons in clantag AFTER patch

It looks as if the "buttons in clantag" epidemic that first plagued MW3 after it's release is back, even though the glitch was reportedly patched by Infinity Ward.


The fact that all of this is happening after the initial patch will surely piss people off.

If reports are true, this is happening on both the XBox 360 and the PS3.

How are they doing this?

This time, the hack/glitch isn't achieved via entering special characters into the clantag. Instead, the user downloads an external file gpd file that is injected into the user's XBox profile. My guess is that a similar route is taken on the PS3. My advice is not to try and do this as IW will ban anyone that is found to have buttons in their clantag. Is having an X or an O in your clantag really worth being banned? Also, the fact that an external hack is involved means that you are at risk of being banned by XBox Live, as it clearly breaches their terms of service.

When will Terminal be released for PS3?

UPDATE: Terminal is coming to PS3 Elite members on August the 14th. It will be available to all regular PS3 members on the 15th of August.

Terminal, a popular map from MW2, will be released for MW3 (XBox) on the 17th of July. I'm sure that MW3 players will be happy to hear that the map pack will be completely free for everyone.

On the 17th, the map will be released for Elite subscribers on the XBox 360. On the 18th, it will be released for non-Elite subscribers.

Terminal MW3

From what I've seen so far, the map will have a few minor cosmetic changes. For instance, the bookstore seems to have been turned into some sort of electronics store.

The question now is: When will Terminal be released for PS3 and PC? Does the deal that Microsoft have with Activision affect free DLC? My guess is that the PS3 and PC will get it at the end of July or in mid-August.

Sniper Only Playlist

Last week, CandySlexia from IW setup a poll and asked the community what kind of playlist they would like to see introduced to MW3. The options that were provided:

  • Hardcore Ground War
  • Knife Only
  • 3rd Person
  • Snipers Only / No Snipers
  • Shotguns Only / No Shotguns
  • Hardcore CTF (Capture the flag)
  • MLG Rules
  • Assassin, Support Streak, Deathstreak, Blind Eye Free
  • Barebones FFA

As the time of posting, the Snipers Only playlist / No Snipers playlist was in the lead with 39% of the vote. In second place, the MLG Rules playlist had 32% of the vote. If things remain the same, it looks as if two new playlists will be introduced to MW3. One will only allow sniper rifles. The other will not allow snipers.

If MLG manages to win, there will be a public playlist that will force players to abide by competitive rules (no killstreaks, respawn delays, OP weapons banned, Claymores banned etc).

Face Off Trolling

Here is some Face Off Trolling (MW3's new game mode). In this case, it's 3v3, and they use Riot Shields and Akimbo FMGs.

Terminal coming to MW3 as free DLC

A lot of people have been seeing the error "Terminal disabled! **Gamertag** does not have the map pack." on their lobby dashboard since June's DLC was released for the Face Off game modes on the XBox 360. This immediately led to rumors that Terminal would be released for MW3. These rumors finally led to an official statement from Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin, who tweeted:
@NeptuneAssassin Terminal? it's a tech issue with delivery but yes it will be free.

So there you go. Terminal WILL be released for MW3 and it will be free for everyone to download.
