PA Modern Warfare News Bulletin

Twitter update:
@fourzerotwo#MW2 Update in Test now: 1887s Balanced. Public "private" Match fix. Infinite Ammo fix. Prestige Hack on PS3 fix. Texture Hack on PC fix.

BREAKING NEWS: According to fellow PA folk who play on the PS3, 1887s are indeed balanced. Soon dogs everywhere will be able to breath (pant?) a sigh of relief.

Hello and welcome to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 thread! While posting here and playing with other people remember:

a) Have fun.
b) Don’t be a dick, even if doing so accomplishes a) for you.


Ground Rules

I've PM'd Echo about these, since I don't want to come off sounding like I think I have Mod-like powers, but I'll post them in this spoiler and let you guys decide whether they sound reasonable.

We've got a CoD Clan Meta-Tag run by Burtletoy: A PA CoD Clan

A PA CoD Clan is now full! Hit me up on PA MW2
From here, you can view other people on the tag and invite them to your game. I may do the same if the group I join needs more people, but sometimes I just want to pub-stomp, so don't be offended if I ignore you. Also, send the invite to the clan tag. Everybody sending one invite is far more convenient then me sending every invite.

There's also PA CoD4, which is an older account with a lot of names on it, I think it was being run by I King Kong I. It probably isn't being maintained anymore, FYI.

(PS3) Friends List for that console which people seem to laugh out loud about for some reason:

    Why is it that if you're playing with the same group of people over six games they don't learn that killstreak rewards are going to get shot down before they get a single kill?

    This is a rhetorical question. I love getting 500 bonus points just from Stinger missiles.

    If you have just Predators equipped, and get 10 kills, you get 2 predators? in other words you can save up a few?

    you mean like the killstreaks recycling? no

    if you kill 3 guys, save your UAV, then kill three more guys, you won't get a second UAV even if all you have selected is UAV.

    however, if you kill 3 guys, save your UAV, die, then kill 3 guys, i think you do get multiple UAV's.

    So today I think I have one goal. I want to get a precision airstrike, a harrier airstrike and a stealth bomber. Then I want to die without using any of them, and then get another precision airstrike, harrier airstrike and a stealth bomber, and just rain down fire for like 2 minutes straight on the opposite team.

    I went prestige again, such a whore.

    It's just more fun to have a bunch of challenges each game then say "get 250 headshots" which takes forever.

    Also apparently the prestige challenges you unlock the first time carry over, so that's really awesome. (the ones that give you the gold titles and the gun emblems)

    Eureka! I'm finally settling on a general build. I call it "The Egregious Asshole"

    AA-12/Striker with grip
    Claymores
    Flashbangs.

    Scavenger Pro
    Stopping Power Pro
    Ninja Pro
    Spoiler:

    Also, I tried the dog rapist build last night by picking up akimbo 1887s off another offender, and ouch. That build is well and truly fucked up. I'm surprised I died at all, seeing as shit died if I even farted in their general direction.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    WaW had an option to back out with your entire party. Does MW2 have such an option, or is my friend with the insanely fast connection that always insists on being party leader just a dumbass for making us back out the old fashioned way (eg. wait for him to back out then we all back out into the party waiting for us in the lobby).

    If MW2 does not have such an option, uh, why the fuck not?

    It's a mystery to us all that i hope gets solved in a patch soon. About the same time we get unicorn airstrikes.

    Also someone kept trying to party with me from PA last night, at all the worst times, usually the last game I planned on playing for a bit. Thanks for the invites though which I will accept in the future.

    Headshots can be fucked up. I have shot people in the knees, seen the blood spurt out of their head, and get headshot credit. I have also been a victim of it several times. Its either lag or some kind of hit-detection fuck up.

    The FAMAS rises pretty much straight up, as oppose to other weapons which rise to the left/right a bit. I've gotten a ton with it as well.

    I think they made the game a lot more generous with headshots, basically. I'm getting them way more often than I did in COD4, and I'm not going to pretend that I've gotten 50% more accurate.

    With good teamwork, my capping build is great.

    Riot Shield
    Shotgun of choice
    Smoke grenade
    Blast Shield
    Marathon Pro
    Cold-Blooded Pro
    Scrambler Pro

    They usually concentrate fire on you, giving your teammates time to shoot them down, and you're pretty much good against a single well-placed grenade. Too bad you're not very good offensive-wise, but that's why this only works with good teammates, which isn't easy to accomplish.

    Nevertheless; I got good results today on Rundown, I was able to hold B (The one in the bridge) against 4 attackers, with some of my teammates behind me, and then they'd go away, and I'd still be able to hold it on my own.

    If you want to improve your offense, swap the shotgun for a M93 Raffica, and maybe CB for Stopping Power. The Raffica is a pocket FAMAS and will increase your killing reach tremendously.

    Does the ACR just shoot right through the riot shield? Seems like at any distance, that gun can still penetrate. I haven't seen any other guns like that; LMG/shotgun at close range do the same thing, but that is understandable. ACR isn't even the most powerful assault rifle, let alone gun. Doesn't make any sense that a guy with an ACR can kill me through my shield from 50yds, while his buddy with a .50 cal sniper rifle or 7.62mm machine gun cannot.

    They're just shooting your big ol' booty which sticks out from behind the shield unless you are lined up to them perfectly. It just seems to happen more with the ACR since it is laser accurate.

    Yeah, I watched a killcam where some guy with a thermal sight grazed a bullet through my left ass cheek and killed me. In order to be invincible to bullets, you have to be facing directly at the shooter, crouched, and not moving.

    It's difficult, but I force myself to just stop caring about my K/D ratio, as it makes the game a lot less fun.

    I do love domination, because we can be winning and I can feel like I'm doing well, without even caring that my K/D is just hovering around or below 1.00.

    Also, I am ashamed to admit this, but I get a serious urge to teabag when I run straight at a riot shield guy, step to the side, and knife him. Is this bad? I accidentally my Halo 3 etiquette.
