It seems incredible, but it really happened. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was in fact sold with a small bug, which caused one of the cheats to appear most famous in the world of online games, namely the Wallhack. A decidedly absurd situation, which Activision and Infinity Ward have however decided to take in hand immediately, to prevent all this from having repercussions within the games.
As reported online, the glitch allowed the Wallhack to be performed. All this happened simply using the game's ping system, which allows you to report an opponent in a certain position to the team. Unfortunately in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the ping did not remain in the reported position, but allowed to trace the opponent, thus detecting any type of movement. This is the exact same Wallhack system, one of the most used cheats in online games and one of the best-selling.
To run for cover, Infinity Ward has decided to disable the ping system. Currently it is therefore not possible to report the position of an enemy to your opponents. Clearly everything shouldn't last very long: the problem should be being resolved right now and it is very likely that the development team will roll out an internal update to fix it.
Huge Bug: You can Ping an enemy during the death screen and the Ping lasts for the whole game, essentially giving you wallhacks on that one player for the remainder of the game. from ModernWarfareII
