Treyarch says it will tackle teamkill looting in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode has been out for a week now (check out impressions here), and Treyarch continues to update not just the game but the community. This time, it's announced plans to tackle teamkill looting.

The battle royale mode, which is currently in beta, has friendly fire enabled, which means your teammates can kill you. In Blackout, like in other battle royale games, you can loot dead players, including your teammates. While this is a valid strategy, some people are deliberately killing their teammates in order to loot their corpses. You can play Blackout solo, in teams of two or in teams of four, and while Treyarch encourages you to play with friends, it's not always possible. And so, griefing can and does occur.

In a post on r/BlackOps4, Treyarch pointed to the "report player" function in the game's social menu, and insisted it is banning players for intentional teamkilling. But it also agreed with the community's call to prevent teammates from looting their dead teammates.

"We agree with this approach and are adding this, or something similar, to our 'To Do' list," Treyarch said.

"We have a zero-tolerance policy for intentional teamkillers. Be sure to report them so we can bring the banhammer down."

And how the heck can they determine if it was intentional or not? Just because someone complained, doesn't mean it wasn't agreed to in advance, or that it wasn't accidental.

Why not just disallow the ability to team kill/loot unless you're linked as friends? Or turn it off altogether? SMDH.

This just doesn't make much sense. Why allow teamkilling and looting your own team if you are going to ban people for doing it? People only do what you allow them to do.

Yes, Treyarch still sucks.
