I remember back in the day (2012-2013) there was hacking in old CoD games (MW trilogy, BO1) that would permanently mess up your progress - either resetting your progress back to rank 1 or ranking you all the way up to maximum and unlocking everything for you.

I haven't played any of them since around that time (primarily through fear of this) and was wondering if it was still around, perhaps even worse than before now that the games are so old. If not, I was hoping to jump into a game or two for old time's sake.

Black Ops 1 seemed pretty fine to me.

Modern warfares are still hacked, though 3 seems to be less so.

Black ops 2 is still amazing, I've only ran into one hacker in about 200 or so games(he wasnt really hacking, he was doing a perk glitch)

Your account? None that I've heard off (Legit complaint that is). Beware that some people will also automatically unlock all trophies for you without your consent and if you care about your trophies and tracking in trophy hunt websites, that may get you screwed a big time, so there's that.

They can do that?! Unlock all trophies for you I mean? That's crazy, never heard of anything like that before!

Yes, they can do that and it's pretty easy for them, they just bring a menu and select an option to unlock trophies for everyone in the room. Some find that good, for others that's pretty nasty.

Can confirm; actually had that happen for my Blops 2 progress. Bit indifferent since I had most of them (the only ones I didn't have were the TranZit zombies trophies, which I was never going to get because I never play TranZit - awful zombies map imo) but still, that was my "first" platinum.

At any rate, Blops 2 was infested with hackers and those people who run that awful "zombies" modded gametype when I last left it. I intermittently play Advanced Warfare still (not sure why, presumably a fondness for loot systems) and even though it's pretty much dead outside of TDM or days when a lot of people have the Supply Drop Challenge for another gametype you still get games and although hackers exist they're not super prevalent.
