Modern Warfare’s Care Package Glitch

Just want to put it out there that I’m so, so happy that Infinity Ward finally released a patch for this.  For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, there was a little exploit in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 where you could call in multiple care packages (extra ammo, heavy weapons, etc.) without breaking a sweat, whereas you would normally have to get a kill streak to earn just one package.  Thus, when playing multiplayer on Live, you could use the glitch to bombard the other team with endless missiles, harriers, helicopters and crap until you win. 

It sucked. You would have the upper hand in a riveting match of Demolition and then suddenly it’s raining bullets and your entire team can’t take a single step without getting gunned down.  Of course, this is followed by some 12-year-old trash talking you when the match ends.

I know this isn’t the first game to bring out the cheaters.  Halo was notorious for modders trying to level up.  So, I’d like to know if…

A) You’ve used exploits like these before (Halo modding, almost anything in Gears of War 2, etc).  Hey, they’re in the game.  It’s the developers’ fault, so why not?

B) You just don’t care.  Whatever.  Gamers on Live always suck.  Cheaters are just another thing you have to deal with.

C) You wish every Xbox came with a hidden explosive that triggers the moment anyone cheats.  Play the friggin’ game like it’s meant to be played.  It’s no fun stumbling into a match that you’ll lose unless you out-cheat the other guys.
