    I used the default sniper class on Nuketown Domination and went like 30-10 with default killstreaks, right after I prestiged.

    So at this moment, I'd pretty sure Nuketown is the best sniping map.

    I dunno, Hanoi seems to have good LOS for snipers. So does the map with the beach, whatever that's called.

    EDIT: Hah, AK-74u is my new best friend. Not great from a distance, but it can get the job done.

    Scat is basically wrong again. Array, WMD, Radiation, Jungle, and Havana all have room for sniping. But it's pretty limited on everything but Array, WMD, and Jungle.

    Honestly, I agree with Scat. All those maps you're talking about have room to snipe, but few of them have places where sniping is more effective than just using an AR.

    Also, my newest complaint about this game.

    I dislike that there are only three guns in the game.

    The AK-74u
    The Assult Rifle
    And the What the fuck are you using, quit doing it wrong.

    You can use any gun you want that's not a sniper rifle and kill people fine in this game.

    My dual wielded PM63 class rips people up

    That's what I mean when I say all the guns are exactly the same.

    Shotguns.

    Man, you're just trying to find problems with this game.

    All of the guns in this game use bullets to kill people. Would it kill them to put some variety in there?

    I wish killstreaks were tied to class. It's annoying to be using hardline pro most of the time and then switching to a different class and suddenly have bad killstreaks.

    there, hidden under the fold so anyone who really wants to continue the loop can still see if they really want to be subjected to the horror.

    Also, watched woody's subguns video and I'm saddened by him not calling the 74s a broken overpowered weapon and how he said it'd be used "by competitive" gamers when he really meant to say "by tryhard bitches."

    edit: I find 50% of the time, the russian announcer guy calls Bravo "Brava" and then I think about the beer of summer.

    After the past week I've realized that I'm only ever using Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package. Probably because my performance is so spotty that I'm lucky to get even a 5 kill streak combined with the absence of the "oh, got my Harrier, now it'll get me my Pavelow" factor.

    But the planes and the crate are always useful, and I can get them pretty regularly. I've got a team class with Hardline that's entire job is to get both planes up as much as possible.

    And please, no mention of that damn car. I really, really hate that thing for some unfathomable reason.

    Digging the new thread title, lol.

    As for gun flavor...I totally disagree. There's a ton of flavor, and while I have my preferences, sometimes I'll jump from the AK47 to the AUG to the Commando because they're all fun. I love both the FAL and M14. I've used all the SMG's and while some really don't fit me, none of them are "unusable."

    People need to get out of their comfort zones and risk going 5-15 for a round with a gun they hate. Also, play Sharpshooter, that'll let you try a bunch of different guns. I got the mastery/1000 kill challenge for every primary and most secondaries in MW2....you just have to play a bit with everything to see the difference.

    For all my bitching about this game, you guys (360 people I play with + too many posters in here) sure have sticks up your butts about the RC-XD.

    You know it is really easy to hear coming and it explodes from one bullet or any explosion?

    I probably explode 3 time's as many RC-XD's as RC-XD's that explode me. I mean, it is like 500 times less infuriating than a Pred, because you can't shoot down a pred.

    Edit: Plus, last night I got two double kills from my tube blowing up an RC someone dropped before entering a doorway, including one game winner.

    The 74 doesn't need a grip either.

    Actually I put a grenade launcher on it because I find having one on a SMG hilarious.

    As for the Mac11, it is good...wish it had a better magazine size.

    I just bitch about it when it kills me because I need a reason for me to retain my glorious superiority at the game. I do feel that it shouldn't be matched with the spy plane killstreak simply because there's never anything for me to shoot at when doing the ghost and/or hardened pro challenges.

    edit: Also, I went back to an old free-to-play MMOFPS recently just to give me a taste of something else without having to spend forever having steam retrieve a game. The game was called Combat Arms. Anyone who feels the need to rage and/or complain about balance in BLOPS should give Combat Arms and evening of play. It makes me so grateful to be playing BLOPS again.

    Allthough it probably doesn't help if I freak right the fuck out if I see an RC coming at me. Also, did not know RC's could drive up stairs.

    Saw one headed towards me on Hanoi so I ran up a staircase.

    Honestly...I just don't like the RC-XD because I mean.

    I just compare it to the Spy Plane

    - You're basically giving away a 3-KS for 1 more kill unless you're lucky, a kill you can probably get yourself
    - Spy plane has much greater recon ability
    - Spy plane helps out your entire team and has a much higher kill potential than the RC.

    I mean at least with the predator missile it counted towards the next KS so it was a "safe" way to get another point, but RC doesn't even have that.

    The problem is that it's got really fucking wonky hit detection so that even if you manage to hit it, it won't explode.

    Protip, you can tomahawk a Valkyrie to make it blow up midair.

    Of course you could shoot it and have the same effect but its nowhere near as badass.

    Whoever said it before was right; you're trying to hate parts of this game.

    You yourself even said that all the guns are the same. Thus, there can't be many "bad" guns. I only said 5-15 because some guns just don't suit the way you play, damage statistics aside. Think recoil, fire rate, damage dropoff, etc. You just have to experiment to find what will work for you, a process during which you will occasionally go like 5-15.

    More than anything I really meant "a single tube will destroy one" cause that's pretty much what I always do.

    Cause the only class I used is still the first gun and first attachment I bought when I was rank 5 or whatever.

    M16 + tube.
