I am by no means a COD or MW or CODMW2 or whatever you call it ,but my 12 brother sits on I yoga ball all god damn day gettting a tactical nuke and thinking he's hot shit for it. The tactical nuke is by far the dumbest weapons in games. OMG lets make a weapon that ruins all the other players experince by ending the game. The nuke is stupid.

It happens so rarely that it is a fun addition I think.  I roll around with an EMP instead, they are quite underrated.  Plus I've heard they cancel nukes if you feel like someone is going to get one.

I see a nuke in almost 1/2 the games I play.  Feels good to get one but it's getting old fast.  Harrier > Chopper Gunner/AC130 > nuke is not that difficult....

If the opposing team has let a player on the opposition get 25 (or 24 with Hardline) kills then the game is pretty much over anyway. Just by the average K/D ratio of a player  being around 1.2  if you let a team get 10 kills (100 points) ahead it's very unlikely - short of getting a lucky carepackage - to come back from.
 
Rather than ruin it for the other team, it's pointing out that they're doing something wrong, E.g. Not communicating efficiently as a team or camping rather than actively seeking this guy out on the map to end his streak.
 
If anything it adds risk to the better players to try and get a few extra kills for the prestige of a nuke rather than camp in a corner (or a roof) which is more likely to get them killed then end the game. I've personally clocked up over 8 days playtime on multiplayer so far reaching the 3rd prestige and I've only seen one player (in a domination match where kill streaks carry over) get a nuke legit without using a ringer on the opposing team.
 
If you're 12 year old brother managed it without using the tactical insertion spawn cheat then hats off to him he can boast he is the 'hot shit'. Though without evidence calling his bluff on the tactical insertion cheat will most likely piss him off big time.

IT IS TERRIBLE!!
 
IT has absolutely ruined objective games.  If you want to use it on deathmatch, okay, but to say that when someon gets 25 kills in a row their team is winning in an objective game is stupid.  I have played WAY too many games where people sit there and obsess over getting a nuke and their KD ratio, while the bomb just sits there untouched by anyone but me.  I would imagine my KD ratio is not very good, but my win ratio has to be at like 95%+ because I actually try to complete the objective of the game, when everyone else is camping a random corner or some BS like that.

People only get nukes because;
 
A. you are playing ground war
B. you are playing with/against bad players that;
don't shoot down harriers, ac130s/choppers.
don't have cold blooded on.
run around like morons when ac130s/chopper gunners are out.
attempt to get payback kills against players clearly leagues better than them.
 
Also if he has only played 7 games and has nuked unlocked; you are clearly full of shit. Also nukes are rewarding, if you can get 25 killstreaks without dying then good for you. I've pulled off one in Ground War but don't play that mode regularly anymore.
 
HC DM and HC HQ Pro; people don't go for nukes in these games and really have no chance of getting em off. Lastly i've seen 4 or 5 nukes after 88 hours of MP (on PC). 2 were back to back games from the same person, shit was insane. 1 was from me, 1 was when I was level 35 or so. And I believe thats all of em, might of been another but wasn't memorable.
 
And no you cannot EMP a Nuke.

The Nuke is fair. Honestly, if you let someone on the other team kill your team 25 straight times, you deserve to lose. I personally have never been nuked (I'm level 60 on prestige 1), but I can imagine being like "shit, we really fucked up" when it happens.
 
However, I have had someone on my team get the nuke. That's pretty lame, especially when you are having a good game.   =P

dude, if your team can't stop a dude from getting 25 kills in a row, then your team really sucks. it's not that hard to shoot down a helicopter or 2 or 3 dudes to take down one guy.

I have only been nuked once in my 24+ hours of play.  This is because I primarly play TDM.  The nuke I did see was some random insane dude on a FFA.  Crazy stuff.

I kind of hate it because it makes assholes want to boost in FFA to get a Nuke, but in modes such as TDM it's not that big of a deal.

The nuke only sucks when you're playing a game like domination and the other team drops it while you're in the lead.  Also I went almost 20 hours without seeing a single nuke and then saw 3 in a single day just recently.

If the other team lets your Harrier get 4 kills (barring a well-placed initial strike) they deserve to get nuked. A hovering Harrier shouldn't stay in the air longer than two seconds against a competent team. Chopper Gunner lasts a bit longer, but one person with a full Stinger should still be able to take it down. No need for that shit to run rampant.

Dude I get like 30 nukes a day with my yoga balls
 
But really on a serious note.. I nuke on average maybe 1-3 daily and when the conditions are right you can get them multiple games in a row. What pisses me off is these guys who can't get killstreaks and nukes legitimately so they play glitched xp matches to boost that stuff. The only people who find that spawn-kill-fest satisfying are people who can't wrap their head around the concept of earning a nuke in a regular game. 
 
Its all been said here before.. anyone can nuke really. You aren't hot shit for doing it and your friends don't care. 
-Play Ground War (fuck you boosters/glitchers)
-If everyone has the same clan tag, leave
-Harrier or Pave Low to taste + C.Gunner/Nuke 
-Intelligently camp (moving/sticking with your team)
-Loadout isn't very important, just Scavenger + Claymore
-Have a little patience + luck
 
Find the happy medium between camping and being that guy who runs around knifing with shotguns and thinks he is good because he went 40-32.

It can't stop the nuke after it has been fired, however it can stop someone from firing a nuke (ie if you EMP before they start the nuke countdown). The EMP stops all killstreaks from being called in while the EMP is active.
 
As far as the OT is concerned, if this does become widespread then IW will just take it out and replace it with something that doesn't spoil the game for everyone else.

The worst part about it for me, is you'll always get one person, be it on your team or the oppositions, going for it but on stupid modes such as HQ and Sabotage, just because you know effectively where abouts everyone is going. But you'll never actually see that person because they'll be tucked away in a little corner, and everyone else is of doing the actual objective of securing stuff.
 
Whether it's on my team or the oppositions it's always annoying.

I play almost only FFA. By design, there should be one nuke in every few dozen games, at the most, but I see it every three or four, because someone can't get one by himself and has to go hide in a corner with a friend. This is the one think IW should fix - when you can join a public free for all game with friends, it isn't exactly "free for all."
