Treyarch Permanently Bans Users From Creating Offensive Custom Emblems/Paint Jobs In Black Ops 3

Treyarch Studios is striking down on users who have an offensive emblem design or custom paint jobs and permanently banning them from using this feature ever again.

The offensive part boils down to using a design that relates to a terrorist organization, dicks and designs related to nazis. If you fit the criteria for such a design, you will receive the following error message and permanently get 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 pain 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.

This is not something that Treyarch hasn’t done before, 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 that decided to abuse the system.

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.

Let us know what you think about this permanent ban in the comments below.
