Okay, so I was playing a game and this guy used cheats. I hate playing a game with cheats so I left but now my name is no longer white: it is now yellow. When I go to the leaderboards during the game, it is huge. Also, when I go to my classes of guns, instead of it showing my primary guns, it shows this weird-looking grenade that looks like it was hand-drawn, and my secondary gun is a pistol. I am really annoyed by this; can anyone tell me how this might be fixed?

This question detailed the same problems you explained:… – DarkShiva Jan 17 '11 at 17:35

all the forums and news suggest that there is nothing that can be done about the stats etc.

You could start a new profile and play in closed lobbies, or just go to black ops, but this is indeed a very sad thing.

Update: Infinity Ward has released a new patch which claims to fix these problems.

  • Care Package, Emergency Airdrop, and Sentry Gun marker grenades sprint speed normalized.
  • Fix for "infinite care package" exploit.
  • Sentry Guns: Improved placement detection, preventing cases of Sentry Guns inside geometry.
  • Model 1887: Bling using Akimbo and FMJ combination now has same range and damage as non-Bling Model 1887s.
  • Fixes to prevent various XP hacks (including the prevention of negative XP)
