How do games like Call of Duty keep track of player stats, like xp, unlocks, kills, deaths, etc? I thought their games are hosted by clients, so how do they avoid players fiddling with their stats?

On the Xbox, Microsoft keeps Live! free of cheaters through some combination of hard-to-hack hardware, strong cryptography, and mass device ID banning.
For the PC, the best way to do it is to host servers yourself, and calculate the scores server side. If you don't want to do that, there are various statistical methods you can use to detect cheating, and you can also do things like let all players in a game submit the outcome for all participants to detect discrepancies.
