Ok, I just bought a USED copy of CoD and attempted to play it online, got informed about this punkbuster thing, blah blah blah, right? Okay, i try to play on a punkbuster server, I get logged on and like 2 seconds later, iv'e been perma-banned by punkbuster. Am I pretty much screwed becuase I bought a used copy and now cannot play online because someone probably traded in their copy after they got banned for cheating or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

To the staff of this site it is impossible to find out whether you were banned for the right or wrong reasons.

The only solution for you if you feel you were treated unjust is to file a complaint with punkbuster.

Support links for several games can be found here:
http://www.punkbuste...age=support.php

You will not receive any help to circumvent or undo a ban.

Thanks for your understanding,

when it kicks you it will tell you why. you might havt to use the ~ key to bring down the console to read the message. If it says duplicate cd key then there isn't much you can do except by a new version.

if you buy a used copy it comes with zero support.

again if its a global gui id ban... well you can appeal via metallica's link, but don't expect a quick response. also I would suggested looking at http:\\punksbusted.com\ for additional info on appeals and how these things are handeled.

thanks,

no reason for it to be closed. no one has asked for help in circumventing it. just help in knowing what to do about it or what the error messages mean.

no problem. metallica set the ground rules. there isn't anyway to circumvent a global guid ban by punkbuster. they will very occasionally process an appeal, but most often all you can do is to buy another copy (full retail, aka new).
