Treyarch Bans Users For Offensive Custom Emblems 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. It was developed by Treyarch Studios and published by Activison.

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

  4. Chill3will says:

    well might as well not even make an emblem, cause its known that literally everything offends SOMEONE now. Its the internet. Not

  5. Chill3will says:

    a damn safe haven from all the bad things people do that may offend you. Quit trying to make it that way. It will never work.

  6. Shadow tec says:

    Bans for silly pictures but not for modded controllers etc. This makes no sense as the picture doesnt have any impact on the game

  7. @TheWeIshScot why dont people grow a pair and not get so fucking offended over every fucking thing… oh no it say dick oh no…
