With anticipation high for Black Ops 2, coders at ilikecheats.com and CallofDutyCheats.com have provided cheats for all the Call of Duty series games in the past. Just hours after Black Ops 2 released both CallofDutyCheats.com and ilikecheats.com had a Black Ops 2 Aimbot working in multiplayer. This cheat allows you to see all players, even when they hide behind objects anywhere on the map. The aimbot allows you to lock onto any enemy player in view and kill them before they have a chance to see you. Steam forums are already talking about the Black Ops 2 hack provided by these two sites and players are upset about the added advantage these cheaters are getting in the game.
As Black Ops 2 is centered around multiplayer competition, along with the rest of the Call of Duty titles, there are many who rely on help to battle others online. Although some disregard hacks and depend only on their skills, Black Ops II cheats have attracted a large number of players due to their variety of features. They provide enhancements and changes to the game that make it easier to locate enemies and lock on targets. The cheats can also make modifications to the Black Ops II engine, which is already one of the most powerful engines ever shipped with a first-person shooter. For example, the speed and consistency of the game can be improved by accelerating the frame rate and removing in-game environments. Removing visuals also makes it easier to see enemies on crowded levels, though some prefer to use their own eyes rather than a Black Ops 2 cheat.
