Chopper gunner is a bloody beast of a reward, especially on small maps like firing range. I swear I got killed about 6 times over without so much as moving last night. Also, my reactions are way too slow for running round close quarters, i just get slaughtered.

i suck at this too. little disappointed you cant choose much in the way of secondary weapons. i cant shoot a pistol worth a shit.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Thursday, 11 November 2010 14:02 (nine years ago) link

i actually get nervous playing these types of games, like im actually going to get shot and it throws off my accuracy. ALso it could be the fact that im 36 and my reaction times aren't what they used to be.

haven't and likely won't ever play this game (mac user) but wtf at the Jeep cross-promotion going on????

BIG MUFFIN (gbx), Thursday, 11 November 2010 15:18 (nine years ago) link

I've been holding my own. I dont feel as griefed as much as I did playing MW2 which is a nice change.

I got the attack dogs yesterday as part of a care package which led to a so far black ops career best 17-7 performance.

mayor jingleberries, Thursday, 11 November 2010 18:35 (nine years ago) link

Those dogs are a right bunch of buggers. Chris, exactly, at 37 I'm definitely feeling that this is a young mans game. Still enjoy it though, have mainly been playing domination where you can get some decent points. Only played one wager match so far, may have to go and have some more of a go in a minute.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Thursday, 11 November 2010 20:41 (nine years ago) link

just saw that jeep ad. what the hell.

goole, Friday, 12 November 2010 01:55 (nine years ago) link

I am terrible at this game. It took me a long time to regularly get my K/D ratio above 1 in MW2, though, so I look forward to not sucking in six weeks or so.

I really wish someone would bring out another Rainbow Six: Vegas-style game with the multiplayer quality of MW2/Black Ops. Camping is boring and running and gunning gets frustrated when you keep getting nailed in the back. I'd like a game that rewards moving deliberately with some basic tactical thinking.

I was doing well last night and all of a sudden I am getting absolutely destroyed. Been experimenting with some of the intro guns like the 2x shot gun, the mp5 and the lmgs and they are fucking horrible. Guess I should just stick with the girl who brought me.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 03:40 (nine years ago) link

...and I switch to the enfeld and then go a decent 10-5 and get a bunch of killstreaks.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 03:50 (nine years ago) link

... and then I go 6-17. awesome.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 04:00 (nine years ago) link

Ha, sounds familiar. Got hit by the chopper gunner on jungle last night, 5 spawns, 5 immediate deaths. Tried waiting to auto-spawn rather than hitting x, no good, still cut down straight away. Is very frustrating. Is a shame too as jungle is the map I most feel like I've worked out, along with Havana. Had a lovely game of domination on there.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 05:55 (nine years ago) link

Ive played a ton of matches and feel like half of them have been crisis

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 07:25 (nine years ago) link

Weird, think I've only played crisis twice, same with nuketown (which is cool but no place to up your ratio)

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 09:31 (nine years ago) link

you all got gamertag names? we should do an old nerd clan.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 16:02 (nine years ago) link

ILX clan. NERDO.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 16:05 (nine years ago) link

i also hate that damn dragunov...its like firing a piece of wood. Sniping is definately harder in this game and thats my specialty. I have a hard time with the automatic weapons. more bolt action please.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 16:10 (nine years ago) link

I already have iLX as my tag, nerd that I am. Will be on later if I can stay awake. Possibly testing out my newly squire wazoo (come on, you can't call it owt else) rifle

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 17:56 (nine years ago) link

First time I used the sniper rifle I had a decent run. Got like 8-9 kills. I do feel that the key is to get your kill and then move on and try to get a killstreak that will help you get more than just the handful of kills you can get with the rifle.

mayor jingleberries, Friday, 12 November 2010 18:05 (nine years ago) link

im chrisv1918, if you nerds want to be my friend?

yeah i had a great run with the dragonov from a tower in one of the large snowy maps, picking off dudes left and right. then it was all downhill from there.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:15 (nine years ago) link

ive never had a high kill ratio in any of the previous games., my average is 8-12. i think once i got 17 and was so proud of myself.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:17 (nine years ago) link

16 kill streak :)

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Friday, 12 November 2010 18:52 (nine years ago) link

That big tower on the snowy level, I've had that once, and just sat there picking two guys off who just kept climbing up for more.

problem chimp (Porkpie), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:21 (nine years ago) link

haha. someone sent me a message that read "look behind you" and then he killed me.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:26 (nine years ago) link

dudes if you're gonna snipe like that u need claymores cmon

fwiw: lol iirc sb'd u tbqh (dan m), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:45 (nine years ago) link

i know, i didnt have enough COD points to buy them.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Friday, 12 November 2010 19:53 (nine years ago) link

well ive made it to level 17. whoopee. i live the FAMAS in this game but it blows through ammo instantly. I'm having incredible success with the M14 though...my gun of choice right now.

yeah man, and refrain from spending too much time looking through the scope.

F-Unit (Ste), Monday, 15 November 2010 16:18 (nine years ago) link

meh i never get on maps that are good for sniping. seem to be playing in firing range constantly....

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 16:26 (nine years ago) link

I get annoyed when dudes who are obsessed with racking up kills keep forcing votes to play on nuketown over and over and over.

strongly recommend. unless you're a bitch (mayor jingleberries), Monday, 15 November 2010 17:24 (nine years ago) link

yep, that happened to me while playing demolition. Nuketown over and over. That map seems like a complete waste.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 17:26 (nine years ago) link

meh i never get on maps that are good for sniping. seem to be playing in firing range constantly....

There really aren't any maps good for sniping in this - I think I've been sniped three times in over ten hours of game time. Plus they nerfed the sniper. Claymores are god tier though.

forcing votes to play on nuketown

No voting on PC thankfully. They've said they're going to patch out the ability to vote for maps you just played to fix this on consoles BTW.

Jeff LeVine, Monday, 15 November 2010 18:13 (nine years ago) link

array i had a nice run of sniping from the tower, 10 kills. and cracked i've done fairly well too.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 18:34 (nine years ago) link

yeah - yeah - there are a few spots, but nothing like previous games. Maybe in the DLC packs.

Jeff LeVine, Monday, 15 November 2010 18:41 (nine years ago) link

yeah agreed. which sort of sucks for a player like me who loves to snipe, and im not talking camping. Thankfully Black Ops has toned down the sniping to the point that there are no more of those quick scoping shitheads. A sniper rifle needs to be used like a sniper rifle...

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 18:46 (nine years ago) link

It didnt help that hit detection with quick scoping was completely ludicrious and resulted in a bunch of generous kills for the scopee

strongly recommend. unless you're a bitch (mayor jingleberries), Monday, 15 November 2010 19:29 (nine years ago) link

I watched my friend play a little of the single player. I was blown away by how incomprehensible the cutscenes are.

macaroni rascal (polyphonic), Monday, 15 November 2010 19:32 (nine years ago) link

agreed. that was one thing that always turned me off from playing, quick scoping and the run and stab dudes.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 19:32 (nine years ago) link

i think i hated those runners more than the quick scopers.

Str8 Drapin It (chrisv2010), Monday, 15 November 2010 19:33 (nine years ago) link

the single player 'plot' at least makes some semblance of sense. I barely knew who half the characters were in MW2

strongly recommend. unless you're a bitch (mayor jingleberries), Monday, 15 November 2010 19:45 (nine years ago) link

And Sam Worthington is fucking awful

using crossbow on hardcore is quite daft, the initial impact always kills, so you're always exploding corpses.

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Sunday, 21 November 2010 15:17 (nine years ago) link

if exploding corpses in a video game is wrong, i don't want to be right

antexit, Sunday, 21 November 2010 15:39 (nine years ago) link

yeah but the coolest thing is seeing someone be stuck, having the moment of "fuck" and then getting blown up.

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Sunday, 21 November 2010 15:43 (nine years ago) link

I don't know why they give you that "stuck" icon if there's nothing that can be done about it. it seems to be adding insult to injury. Also i wish it weren't in the sticks and stones game. That game would be more fun with just ballistic knife and tomahawk.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:cpqcVBrny0Q-bM:http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y113/im52xmax/my-two-cents.jpg&t=1

antexit, Sunday, 21 November 2010 16:04 (nine years ago) link

sticks and stones is kind of silly since imo it's as easy to hit with the tomahawk as it is to hit with the other too. playing it i "humiliated" a lot more often than i stuck.

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Sunday, 21 November 2010 16:18 (nine years ago) link

the other two gah

rappa ternt sagna (jim in glasgow), Sunday, 21 November 2010 16:19 (nine years ago) link

I love the tomahawk and ballistic knife combo and use them often in the regular game. I find tomahawk a better distance weapon, as you can try for ricochet and you can predict the drop more naturally over a distance. or so it seems to me.

antexit, Sunday, 21 November 2010 16:33 (nine years ago) link

i'm a little but curious i guess; will it be realist-ish darpa stuff like i read about on the wired danger room blog, or, like, halo

they are sort of running out of assault rifles to model tho

have we talked about oliver north being somehow involved with this game? also apparently the villain is some sort of demagogue trying to incite a revolution against the rich/powerful? skeeves me out, codblops 1 was clancy fascist enough. remember cod4 and the half-assed "anti-war" quotes that would pop up when you died? that was some subversive shit in comparison
