If I have a friend join in for co-op muliplayer online splitscreen in Modern Warfare 3, and he does badly (as the second player, not the first) does his bad game effect MY stats?

I'm 99% sure that the answer is no, they don't, but I don't have enough data/experience to say for sure. – agent86 Jul 17 '12 at 19:05

No, it does not. If he is not signed in as a separate profile, he will play as 'guest' (Xbox 360). His stats will be tracked for the duration of the session as his own and upon ending the session (Guest signed out), his stats will be lost and be reset to the primary account's stats. The primary account holder's stats will only be affected by his gameplay. If the second player is signed in as a separate profile, his stats will be tracked on that profile.

Is there any way to source this? – Ender Jul 17 '12 at 20:06
This SE Question references it, and in my experience (I used to play Split-screen a lot), my partner never had his stats added to mine. I can't find any authoritative sources confirming this, however. – SSumner Jul 17 '12 at 20:10
@Ender I have over 200 hours across several consoles and never had guest stats added. I have 0 usage on the ACR and always have my guests use it. Still zero usage. – Dustin Jul 31 '12 at 22:08
@Dustin - the ACR is a great weapon - you should try it out (with a silencer and kick) – SSumner Aug 1 '12 at 15:55
@SSumner, I did use it on my old PSN account and you're definitely correct. I just found that, for me, it tended to lead to poor gameplay habits (relying less on tactics/positioning and more on weapon strength). – Dustin Aug 2 '12 at 3:08

I think it does not I mean if the guy that you are playing with is in guest it shouldn't do anything
