Just really want this nuke title and considering trapping to get it but can it get you banned? I'm a 753 and it won't be worth it for one calling card.

The Following article may or may not be true. Read with your own precaution. I do not hold responsible for the damages or injuries this may cause, if you continue reading you accept all of the above.

Considering you are level 753. You must be a very bad player.

Trapping is indirect boosting.

Treyarch have started banning people for trapping.

How you get banned for trapping:

1) People report you
2)Your recent games may show your trapping games.

Note: Treyarch have just implemented this rule, and it may have an effect in a couple of weeks.

I seriously doubt that someone will get banned for spawn trapping

I haven't read such bull, I've been using brecci jitter for some time now and have had 100+ messaging me saying there reporting me and I've not had any ban issued, and as for spawn trapping I can't see it a bannable offence as it's a technique a group of friends are using to win a game, the day that strategy becomes a bannable offence is the day any fps games will stop being made

You can be banned for it, yes. I'm not sure how common it is, but it can be considered cheating. It is one thing to know where someone is going to spawn. It is another to take that knowledge and exploit it.

I'm not to sure how many people have been banned doing so (if there is any) but I trap every now and then with my friends and haven't had nothing occur to me. Then again I only do so every now and then while on the other hand my friend does it on a daily basis and nothing has occurred to him. But who knows it may be different for everyone?

If they are banning people for spawn trapping now? Call of duty is getting worse!

Just let people play the game how they want.

Does your profile show any "avoid me" or "needs improvement"?

It depends what type of trapping. Just normal spawn trapping against normal players is allowed. It's their fault for not adding more spawn logic, which will probably be added to nuketown domination in the near future.

However, spawn trapping against people who let you kill them (boosting), but known as 'diers' in the spawn trapping community will put you at risk of ban. Banning is uncommon is BO3 anyway. ATVI banning team are lazy and use an automated system.

To be honest, spawn trapping requires no skill and should be classed as cheating.
