Colored Gamertags?

See pics to see what I mean... I have never seen this in my entire life of playing Xboxlive... wonder how they do that, let alone allow a cuss word? lol

I took the pics with my blackberry really quick.

That's nice. Rank 66 and he hasn't been banned yet.

And I've seen this WAY too many times to count in CoD4. Had to have been spotted in MW2 sooner or later. I'm sure there will be many YouTube tutorial videos on how to do this very soon.

EDIT: And don't forget, 8+6=thebluebanana

I remember doing this on the PS3 COD 4. Thought it was a specific system glitch...

I saw one the other night, his name was Microsoft, and there were all the buttons next to his name like above. Thought it was weird, but didn't give it much thought.

There won't be a "tutorial on youtube" because most of this is done by modding. Like many of these namehacks, you have to have the right hardware (usually the same thing people use for gamesaving and other mods - XSATA). There are tutorials all over modding sites for name hacks, but if you go online, you will get your system banned eventually.

Its not really detectable because its not a permanent change and when you look at the game stats their original GT shows. You have to HEX edit to do that.

Those would be hacked accounts. It is a simple hack, still a hack however!

My first multiplayer match of the night and all I see is the Xbox 360 controller buttons in a name....... I miss the old Xbox with the modded Halo 2 it was quite fun having Master Chief jump 500 trillion feet in the air with a SMG shooting out Energy Swords..... Good memories....

I think that it is just as in the PC version. You have to put '^x' behind what you want to color and 'x' is the number ranging from 0 to 9. Each number gives different color. I think they did this with their gamertags.

In this case i dont think filing a complaint will do anything, except maybe threaten to ban them if they don't change it back. But hey, i'm not stopping you from doing it anyway

(and yes, that was serious)

If this is all the guy is doing, I don't see the harm in it. If he's messing with his leaderboard stats, messing with gameplay, etc. that's one thing, but he doesn't appear to be negatively affecting anyone by changing how his name displays.

Most WaW players will be able to remember seeing at least one guy with a name alternating colours or with these symbols in their gamertag at one point... Especially if you played a lot. I remember I was up against a team on Makin and each member of my team except me and a friend had a different coloured name...

Yh I did that once or twice it was a pain to do it though and no that one didn't involve a hack just a really easy trick to make your name appear colourful.

Don't be so quick to judge. This thread (through what people posted in it) is evidence that not everyone who does these little tag hacks is always doing some other sort of hack as well. All I'm saying is, don't be such a pessimist
