Xbox Live's top cop twitter.com/Stepto/status/6282... (AKA Stepto), said earlier today via twitter that anyone caught using the Modern Warfare 2 Javelin glitch may recieve a 24 hour Xbox Live ban at the least.

Infinity Ward are working for a patch which is currently going through testing for both PC, PS3 and on the Xbox, but in the mean time if you do experience anyone doing it, file a complaint and try to wait it out til the patch has been released.

To see what the Javelin glitch is and how to do it (although I am held in no way responsible if you do decide to use it in a public match), watch this youtube video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0-nYVHyQWc

To be honest I am with Sony on this on the fact that you shouldn't ban someone one for using an exploit in-game which is not a result of their own doing (IE they didn't mod or hack)... but I can also sympathize with Xbox on the fact that if a glitch gives you an unfair advantage then surely a ban should act as a deterrent to those who use it...

However this glitch could be classed as anything but an unfair advantage because you actually have to sacrifice a life to get a kill and is sooo boring to run around with a rocket launcher out and not be able to fire it - you have to be extremely lucky to get more than just one kill per use so if anything, you are actually doing yourself no favors.

PS3 update 1.06 is the javelin fix, care package glitch fix, and addresses areas where players could get into geo. Like rocks on Afghan.

For those playing MW2 on Xbox 360. The same fixes that are in 1.06 are coming to you, it's currently in Microsoft cert. Out of my hands.

Minimum, depending on the circumstances (IE if they reoffend) the punishment can be extended.
