A number of gamers who manage to reach high rounds while fighting off the undead hordes have reported receiving a message, without warning, that they've been permanently banned.
As documented by Reddit user Korlesa over at r/CODZombies community, a number of PC gamers have seemingly been completely blocked from all Black Ops Cold War game modes, specifically after getting to high rounds during Zombies.
"I and many other people since April 2, are being falsely perma-banned without reason when going for high rounds in Zombies on PC," Korlesa wrote. "After going 50+ rounds people are receiving a 'Sail 630 Nuclear Bug' Error. Upon exiting to battle.net we see that we have been permanently banned."
Korslea's post was accompanied by a robust selection of screenshots and accounts from other PC players who have been banned, despite their insistence they've done nothing wrong. This wouldn't be the first time innocent players have been caught up in one of Activision's banwaves, but this issue does seem alarmingly widespread.
Activision's support forums are currently filled with dozens upon dozens of users all reporting this exact ban, and there hasn't been any real word on the problem for the publisher. At the time of writing, the only official response has come from Treyarch community manager Josh Torres, who received a ton of downvotes on Reddit for writing "I am unable to assist with this issue. All infractions undergo a thorough review process by the security team before enforcement."
Yikes. Not what any of the banned players wanted to hear, obviously, but there's not much Torres can do on this front other than try and get some kind of statement from Treyarch. We've also reached out to Activision and will update this story if we hear back.
