What have they done?

#1 Posted by myslead (923 posts) -

For someone who spent countless hours on MW1 and MW2... I find MW3 multiplayers to be extremely... bizarre.

I found myself in a sea of rushers and SMGers just going around maps shooting stuff ending games in 1-1 ratio all around.

What happened ? My trusty M16 is hardly getting it done anymore.

They fucked up a rebalance.

How the hell do you do that?

3 round burst is worst.

Dude, M16 sucks in this game, don't use it, it's always my go-to weapon in shooters, but it's truly a piece of shit in this game, use the Type 95 if you want a 3 round burst gun, it's been serving me very well. But I know what you mean, bizzare is the right word, I'm not that great at this game yet, I hold a 1.9 K/D primarily using shotguns (the Striker is so much fun on a proper connection!) But I'm almost always the person in the lobby with the highest K/D, it's crazy how much people die in this game, no one ever seem to have more than 15 kills and at the same time they have about 11-20 deaths, it's really weird.

There's always Viagra.

I agree they have definitely changed he tone or something. As you I always went with the trusty M-16, but can't seem to keep pace. I also noticed the obersvation of almost everyone having a 1:1. Wierd thing is I was a pretty decent MW2 player, but I cannot get a positive K?D this time around. Matchmaking seems a bit off.

I was 3.0 KDR in MW2

I don't like this new meta at all

I only find the M4 and UMP useful. I hate every other gun. Or maybe every other gun hates me. I feel like you die pretty fast to because I never see when I'm losing health. I just die out of nowhere.

@awesomeusername: MP7 is pretty beastly

The spawns in this game kill me....literally

Yeah, I'm not a huge CoD fan but I noticed that also. I was like "wtf.. i swear in mw1 there was situations when i was injured and not dead" and then I went back and played it instead and realised I like it so much more because of that. I don't enjoy dieing basically on sight even over long ranges.

Well the def toned down the M16 in this one but buffed the Type 95. The Type 95 is probably the best mid to long range weapon in the game and its even pretty beastly in CQC if you have steady aim on. For the most part this game is so fast paced and frantic with the small maps that it turns into a death trap for everyone. I actually enjoy this one quite a bit.

Maps and spawns are shit in this game. Worst call of duty multiplayer since 3. Glad I didn't buy it.

I haven't tried that gun because I don't own the game. I played it twice since it's been out for several hours straight at my friends house and I've only used a couple guns. 

CM901: I hate this gun
MP5: When I watch people on YouTube use it, it seems godly but when I tried it, I sucked with it.
M4A1: This and red dot sight is what I use even though I don't really like this gun. Not enough damage.
Scar L: An alright gun but I don't like using it.
G36C: I used this at the beginning as the default class and I like it better then it was in CoD4. 
UMP 45: Same as above but it wasn't in CoD4.
P90: I like this one but I hate having to unlock the attachments for it because it sucks, to me, with nothing on it.
PP90M1: Sucks balls
Barrett: It's good but it's hard to snipe because the maps suck. 
 
Those are the guns I used and as you read, I don't really like them. The spawns suck major ass in this game especially that the maps are so small and smushed. I hate it when I kill some dude and I get my ass handed to me from 3 people who spawned out of nowhere.

I don't even like CoD. I just played it because my friend asked me to go to the midnight release with him and I slept over. I was going to watch the story mode on YouTube because that's the only part I was interested in but since my friend got it, I played it instead. Anyways, I also remember in CoD4 that you would know when you were getting shot at. In this game, when you're about to die, that's when the screen turns red. Other then that, if someone kills you, the screen turns red the .50 seconds before you die. <--- That's not fact, that's just my interpretation of it. CoD4 is the best multiplayer game of any of the CoD's. I only played through one prestige in WaW and I hated MW2 and Blops multiplayer. Only thing about Blops multiplayer that I liked were One in the Chamber and Sticks and Stones because I love tomahawking people.
 

LONG LIVE COD4!
