Known Weapon Glitches:

Akimbo FMG9s kill everything on the screen, always.
LMGs + Grip & Thermal = a goddam laser rifle
CM901 + Tube OR Masterkey = Increased rate of fire
Shotgun(s) + Extended Mags = More Pellets per round and more rounds per reload
If you drop prone while scoped in with a sniper rifle, then switch to your secondary weapon, almost all recoil will be removed from your secondary weapon.

Also; once you get to 8 kills in Specalist (7 with hardline) you not only get all the perks, but also all the weapon proficiencies

Modern Warfare 3's New Strike Packages and Pointstreaks
Before I get into the meat of what Strike Packages mean for Modern Warfare 3, say goodbye to the killstreak. And say hello to pointstreaks, all 28 of them. No longer will player kills be the only way to build up streaks. Sure, kills still count, but in MW3, completing objectives in gametypes like Capture the Flag and Seek and Destroy will reward players with points they can cash in to call in recon drones, attack helicopters, sentries and other power-ups. Kill assists count toward pointstreak numbers too, letting supporting players, not just the dominant virtual marksman have all the fun.

Full sizeInfinity Ward's Robert Bowling explained the change at Call of Duty XP, saying "the killstreak system was optimized for one game type: Team Deathmatch." Now, players will be rewarded more handsomely for actually completing each gametype's objectives.

Modern Warfare 3's pointstreaks come in three groups, dubbed Strike Packages. Players can customize their classes with one of three Strike Packages, adding a new layer of personalization to COD multiplayer. The three types are Assault, Support and Specialist. Each has its own list of 'streaks. Here they are.

If you like "big body counts, the Assault package is for you. With Assault, you can call in UAVs and care package drops, naturally, but this is also where the big guns live: assault helicopters, AC130, Predator missiles, mortar strikes, Juggernaut suits. Assault brings the pain. Your streak count will reset every time you die, if you go for the Assault Strike Package.

Support is about "helping the team win," not just stacking your body count. Sounds nice, doesn't it? For the less aggressive team player, Support deals in 'streaks that lean more defensive. This includes the option to drop a remote gun turret, call in a hacked airdrop, deploy ballistic vests to your team, drop an EMP or, ultimately, call in an Osprey gunship that also delivers five airdrop packages (one of them hacked). With Support, your streak count will not reset upon death.

Finally, Specialist is all about perks. Become a super soldier with Specialist, which lets players stack on additional perks. You'll get up to six perks—including Sleight of Hand, Hardline, Recon, et al—as the 'streaks pile up. After your eighth kill, however, you get every perk available to you. You become a monster.

With thanks to Jaunty, Dietary, plus everyone else for the old OP. Alas, due to new forum post limit constraints, I've had to chop it all off. We needed a new OP anyways! Old one's linked below.

    yay i prestiged in blops! i was so frustrated by that game, my last match before prestige i literally ran around on jungle, not even trying to shoot people unless that were prone or sitting in a bush. then i played one match after prestige and of course it was nuketown and i used the stock olympia class because why the fuck not im never playing this game again, and i went like 20-5 in TDM with it. O_o

    in other news, BF3 makes me rage just as much because every other match it gets chuggy as fuck and i cant seem to kill anyone because im constantly spawning in front of dudes (this is TDM) or teleporting across the map as im trying to run. BUT the first shotgun (not the DOA or DAO or whatever the hell) is pretty awesome on small maps and the M88(?) LMG is fucking beast mode with extended mags. also im drunk. halloween!

    MW3 HYYYYPE! also Uncharted 3 and Lord of the Rings: War in the North come out tomorrow so it looks like I won't be playing BF3 again until i get pissed off at MW3 around next Wednesday at 7 PM.

    and for those that are interested: IGN is doing a MW3 livestream tomorrow afternoon on some new maps, and they get to use guns that have only been shown in trailers thus far, like the FAD and shit. I think its starts at like 12 PM eastern time (I'm making this up, I have no idea what time it starts) and I'm sure it'll go for a few hours (but maybe not, I really put no effort at all into bringing you this information). I know I'll be neglecting my girlfriend to watch it, AND YOU SHOULD TOO. im rambling ahhhhhhh but hey i said i was drunk and I ain't lyin'.

    So in light of the game having been pirated, have there been any initial impressions about the campaign/multiplayer?

    I've pretty much been convinced that if I'm going to nab MW3, it would be the Hardened Edition, since the Elite status means free DLC for the whole year.

    But I don't want another repeat of Blops, so this is a wait-and-see situation for me.

    Didn't read any of that, but wasn't the debate mostly in regards to PA members giving their impressions? I figured quotes from outside sources would be okay.

    If people want to pirate it for whatever reason, that's their business, but as a potentially paying consumer, if there's information out there that can shed some light on the supposed quality (or lack of) of MW3, I'd like to know about it.

    In the meantime, how much DLC has been revealed thus far? If possible, I'd like to do the math and see if a year of Elite ends up being a worthwhile value versus individual purchases.

    The game lacks a zombie mode, so the majority of DLC should be extra maps, right?

    Didn't the entire plot get leaked something like 6 months ago anyway.

    I read the synopsis but I remember nothing besides the fact that it was pretty standard for a CoD campaign.

    I assume if you pick up an enemy's weapon you'll get know proficiency bonus, like Kick or Hold Breath.

    Edit: Also, any more info released on Point Streaks yet? Milk Ducks mentioned that, while running Hardline, he could capture the first two points on Domination and be only two points away from a Predator Missile. Using the missile to get Air Strike which would lead to a Helicopter. If streaks resets (which I believe they do), he could easily start the whole process over if the Helicopter adds to the start of a new chain.

    5/6/7 -> 5/6/7?! Guns? Who needs those? :D

    That's ... a good question. I'm not sure how that'll work.

    My initial reaction would be to say you don't get any proficiency bonus on a weapon you pick up off the ground.

    Also, any word yet on how Care Packages will work in Modern Warfare 3? They're a part of the Assault Strike package (4 kills, or 3 with Hardline), so will they only produce streaks from Assault? Or will Support streaks show up in boxes, too? Also, the 18-point Support streak, Escort Airdrop, summons in an Osprey that drops 4 Care Packages (plus one trap), too; will it be dropping only Support pacakges, only Assault packages, or both? Very interested in hearing how that's going to play out.

    Come to think of it, anyone getting a controlled vehicle (Chopper Gunner/Helicopter) could easily earn enough kills to reset their streak (probably earning another CG/Heli in the process) so I can't imagine IW would let that slide. I'm going to pray that someone took notice and your final streak doesn't count towards a new one or we are all in for a world of BROKENESS!

    Sounds like MW1 and 2 tbh. One of the things BlOps got right was not allowing players to chain kill streaks off of kill streaks. Here's hopping that "IW" took notice and kept that in place. I'd hate for a good idea to be killed just because it was Treyarch that put it in.

    Oh, no. It counts. It's all based on points. It doesn't matter HOW you get the points.

    Streaks stack again, and streaks reset, so you don't have to die anymore to get your streaks out. Which is precisely why my Assault setup right now looks like Predator Missile (5, 4 with Hardline), Precision Airstrike (6, 5 with Hardline), and Attack Helicopter (7, 6 with Hardline). That's so easy to get. So, you get your streaks out at 5,6,7 (or 4,5,6) and when you get up to 12 (or 10 with Hardline), you get your Predator Missile out again. And the whole fucking thing happens once more.

    Look at how fucking consistent that is: Predator WILL get you one (or more) kills, which WILL get you your Airstrike, which WILL get you one (or more) kills, which WILL get you your Attack Helicopter. If you happen to get doubles on the Predator and Airstrike, your Attack Helicopter only has to get you like two kills before you get your Predator out again.

    So consistent!

    The neat thing is, now that streaks are based on points instead of kills, the stuff you get out of Care Packages SHOULD grant you additional streaks.

    Nope. Kill streaks stack. Confirmed months and months ago. Well, "kills" don't really stack, exactly, but you get your streaks based upon points. So they do kind of stack, since kills net you points.

    To be fair, though, Blind Eye straight-up protects you from being seen by kill streaks. So if you're afraid that the game will be broken by all the bullshit stacking air support, just run Blind Eye. They might be getting heaps of shit out, but it won't be firing at you. And, come to think of it, they can't stack shit up in the first place if their streaks can't SEE you in the first place. So, whatever.
