Kodystokes was an average player in Closed Beta. However, at one point he made a post in the bugs section of the forums reporting a bug that said his 'kill streak' was not displaying properly. Being a Battlefield game and not Call of Duty, there are no killstreaks. There were also other references to hacks. It was evident that Kodystokes was hacking/had hacked, and had reported himself on the forums (During closed beta, that was acceptable).
The term 'pulling a kodystokes' or suchlike is now used to refer to anyone who unintentionally presents themselves in a negative light on the forums or publically, such as posting a video of noobbashing or a video of themselves hacking and presenting it as legitimate gameplay.
