Treyarch Studios is striking down on Black Ops 3 users who have an offensive emblem design or custom paint jobs and permanently banning them from using this feature ever again.
The criteria for offensive relates to designs that relate to a terrorist organization, phallic imagery (dicks) and imagery related to Nazis.
If your design fits this criteria, you may receive the following message and find yourself permanently banned from using this feature in the multiplayer mode. This applies to both the emblems and the paint shop in the game.
Keep in mind that this is a permanent ban for the user meaning there won’t be any way to use custom emblems and access the paint shop after this ban. If you want to use this feature, it is best to use them in a way that shows your creativity instead of simply going for something offensive.
Not The First Time
This isn’t the first time Treyarch have used bans to curb their fan’s designs, as it has happened with the past games in the series as well. Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 and 2 also featured similar bans for people who decided to abuse the system.
There has been reports of numerous [ISIS] clan tags in Black Ops 3 though, which could be part of the spate of recent bans.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is available now on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It was developed by Treyarch Studios and published by Activison.
