COD 4 - online multiplayer blocked. Help!!

Found 8th Jun 2011
Can anybody help, my son was playing COD4 online last night , he came off it for a bit and when he went back on there was an offensive message in the message of the day box.

He now cant get online to play live COD 4 matches and has lost all his rank and XP. He was involved in what he called a "hacked lobby" which appears to have infected his XBox when playing COD4.

Have tried XBox live support and Activision but they can't help. Any of you guys come across this or have a solution??

To restore rankings/score/online access msg gamertag - bravotwozero

yup i dont think theres much you can do.... my son leaves hacked lobbies however since recent patch the online multiplayer seems more stable.
Are you not able to delete all the cod4 files that are on your xbox? This is what i'd suggest if you had the problem on a pc.

Tried deleting from hard drive, made no difference!
Yeah i've seen that happen to people before.

The solution is to send a message via xbox live to fourzerotwo saying Rank Restore and he will sort it

"We are aware of an issue with users being de-ranked. If this has happened to you and you would like your rank adjusted or reset to rank 1, please send me an Xbox Live message with "Rank Restore" to this gamertag (fourzerotwo). Please specify if you want to be completely reset, otherwise we will simply revert your rank to Level 55 of the prestige you are currently on. We will not change your prestige (up or down). "
buy what i've got............a PS3, sounds just as good although it has added extras of all your details being stolen and on-line gaming being down for as long as it take's the stupid ***** to get it fixed.......

rant over.
Surely if you clear the cache and all the files on the hard drive it might fix it, unless the data is stores on their server.
Data is stored on their server.

At a guess what has happened is he was in a hacked lobby and when he killed someone he got a massive amount of negative XP which has put him at minus a couple of million.

This stops him joining games and only way around this is to have rank reset as set out above.

In future if this happens best thing to do is just dashboard without exiting game as the stats are not stored then
his friends thing is full what now?
ummmm delete a friend

And maybe this will be a lesson not to partake in hacked lobbies

ummmm delete a friend



The person they are trying to message has a full friends list.
A day late, and a dollar short.


You don't need to be a friend to send a message on XBL
A day late, more than a dollar short

To be honest i wouldnt know a hacked lobby from my bathroom or even a non hacked lobby. That is probably why it has taken me 3 months of trying to get the right answer. ' More than a fist full of dollars no good in europe'
Information regarding this has been posted numerous times, to fix you need to msg an xboxlive gamertag who will restore the old rankings/score while will reenable playing online. Search misc for similar posts and you shall find.

Thanks Found the info and when i tried to message him it came back as his message box was full. Just waiting to see if a message i sent two days ago will be actioned. That was bravotwozero - dont know of anyone else who can amend my rank
would love to know how it works

i have been sending messages for a week now with no joy or reply. Anyone have any other ideas please?
thank you
Buy him Modern Warfare 2, or Black Ops.

We looked mw2 - Too violent im afraid. I know some people are going to say something to this. But trust me looked into other games and this is the only one with a limited amount of 'acceptable' gore.
He is desperate though which is why i am trying.
Um well MW2 is the sequel to COD4 by the same developer so are basically similar in content.... i.e. you shoot people they die, you shoot them in the head, they die faster. So if you find MW2's gore unacceptable I don't understand how you think COD4 is ok.

Just get him Gears of War 2.

Am i right in thinking that the opening sequence sees someone shout m.....f..... and then slit someones throat? Havent seen that in mw4. We have checked out some games and havent found a shooting one that is semi-acceptable ie no throat cutting/slicing people open/ using the mf phrase. Old fashioned idea maybe but in no hurry for either of mine to learn from me.

Is gears of war in this bracket?

thanks for your help by the way appreciated. I wish bravo tow zero would sort out for us but no reply yet
Gears of war has swearing, headhots, blood, probably not your ideal game.

That sounds like COD5 - World at War.

Thanks will look at that
Hoping for a war thing though is sims2 that sort of think

Peer pressure is amazing i had no idea. I feel such a rubbish dad for saying no...but it is fior his own good.
Over a month since i posted this and still no reply from bravotwozero.......anyone knoe why
Afraid not thats the only resolution ive heard of.

Afraid not thats the only resolution ive heard of.


Doesnt matter how hard i try with this there seems no way of concluding. Son only has this shooting game (we checked it was ok befor we brought) Doing my head in every day. Might have to break/lose/run over etc. That should stop the pester power:)
Hi .
I have the same problem. I cant join online games on MW through a Find Match and my XP is always moving down on minus a couple of millions. I can play only when some friend will invite me to the game. What shall I do?
