Treyarch's Security Enforcement Policy for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is in place for a very good reason, and they're not taking any sh** .
Which is why they'll be coming down hard on glitchers as well. It seems the Black Ops II community is annoyed: Some have found a Prestige glitch that lets players instantly rank up to Lv. 55; apparently, this involves watching a particular video on the in-built CoD TV option. It might be nifty and all sorts of amusing for cheaters, but Treyarch isn't amused in the slightest. The studio recently recently Tweeted :
"Noticed a few 'level 10' guys ruining the party for everyone. Enjoy your new rank while it lasts. Solution (and demotions) incoming."
They added that for the "short term," Edited Films and Emblems will be unavailable, presumably so they can try to fix the issue. It's no fun playing with people who cheat but then again, if it's that easy to cheat your way to a Prestige rank, would you really be able to resist? Wouldn't you want to do it just once ? Okay, I probably wouldn't but I imagine many would.
