    I've definitely been killed less by the knife since the patch, and have killed more people who were flailing wildly with it.
    They borked the goddamn knife. :x

    I r not happy about this.

    The knife has been borked since day 1. I'm going to come out and say it: I miss commando. At least Commando was predictable. Now, I have no idea whether my knife is going to work or not. The answer is usually "probably not."

    That's good - maybe people will actually use bullets instead of trying to knife someone.
    Uhhhhhh, people use bullets all the time in this game. Maybe you've noticed all of those little things shooting at you all the time. I bet if you look at the things you're most frequently killed by, the kinfe's not really all that high up on the list.

    I don't know about you, but knives are third on my list after the AK74 and FAMAS.

    Yeah, netcode issues are about 99% of my frustration with the game right now. It causes all sorts of wacky hijinks.

    Wacky hijinks? The 2nd and 6th kills in my sniping clip would disagree.

    What does second chance pro do?

    Because I just got so weirded out and I can only assume that it's due to second chance pro

    Shot a guy, put him into second chance, like the correct animation, guy pulls out his pistol and everything but while I'm reloading he gets back up and shoots me, there didn't seem to be anyone around to revive him either.

    Second Chance Pro lets others revive you and lets you live longer while downed. There's no autorevive like in MW2.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    Blech. Messed around with every SMG in the game, and only one of them doesn't suck monkey nuts in one way or another when silenced, and its the gun I refuse to use: the 74u. I really wish developers would stop making guns that are good at everything. The Famas, Commando and 74u in particular can all suck dicks.

    Why would Activision put up servers?

    They sold a metric shit-ton of copies of BlOps, and before that MW2 sold an assload of copies, and W@W sold an assload of copies, and CoD4 sold an assload of copies. All were P2P-based on consoles, right? So they're making a lot of money on this franchise. Servers cost money to purchase and maintain (ohgod the maintenance on servers like this), which lessens profit on the game. What incentive do they have to put that kind of cash down?

    Waiting to hit level 27 so I can get the L96 and PSG1 so I can try some different guns. The WA2000 just feels a bit weak to me.

    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.

    I recently discovered Spectre and it's my current go to SMG(I forgot who recommended from this thread but thanks). Only down side is that I suck at aiming and that gun is bullet hose so I run dry often. At the same time, I am not good enough to survive long enough for Scav perk to be useful.

    My top 5 killed by stats:
    1. FAMA
    2. Commando
    3. AK74u
    4. GALIL
    5. Knife

    2, 3, and 4 are very close to each other, like within 5%.

    Went 35-0 on Firing Range today: 27 of those 35 were weapon kills; the other 8 were from Kill Streaks. That's a personal best for me.

    So attachments on the PSG1 essentially detract from its damage and shouldn't be used?

    I did it, but I play on PS3. It definitely took a really long time though and it sends you through an apparent circle of links that do nothing. I think it just takes some time to work itself out because I went and checked the next day and I was all linked up.

    Dammit.

    I don't know if it is this most recent patch or what, but this game is completely broken for me. I pull up the server browser, and all I see are foreign servers or US servers with 2k+ pings. I've tried restarting and verifying the local cache with no luck. I suppose the next step would be reinstalling, but I'd rather not go through the hassle if I have no reason to think it'd fix anything.

    Anyone else run into this?

    Game now hardlocks on the server browser after patch

    Pretty much resolved myself to the fact that I'm never going to be able to play this

    Are you immediately clicking the favourites tab after opening the browser? That'll crash blops, so just refresh the ranked servers tab once before switching to favourites.

    I consider this a kinda weird 'advanced' technique I'm starting to develop. This only works in hardcore:

    Basically I'm running:
    Hardline
    SoH
    Marathon

    M16 w/ ACOG
    Colt w/ extended mags

    Most of this is switchable, but the marathon and soh are the lynchpins in it. Basically you can use the colt as your run and gun weapon, for ducking in and out of cover and being in cqc. The speed boost you get from your pistol being out in addition to the marathon run boost means you can clear a shit ton of ground fast and pretty quickly engage guys. The M16 w/ ACOG handles pretty much everything else and with SoH you lose the long wind up time the ADS on the ACOG has. I use this with a Tac Insert to further fuck with people.

    This works better in maps like launch or array where having that m16 can be a real life saver.

    I'm thinking for smaller maps to switch the colt with the c75 auto, but I feel like the auto is an all or nothing deal, where as the colt can drop a lot of guys with 14 bullets, even if it means dealing with bullets vanishing.

    Normal CZ75 maybe, full auto damage dropoff is probably too fast.

    Also reduces the damage from 40-20 to 30-20, but it wouldn't matter much in Shitcore. I'd just use the Python with a speed loader or snub nose, since it's 50-30 (40-30).

    Umm, I'm actually enjoying the PSG1 with the new 1-shot kill multiplier sans attachments. Even pulling slightly better than 1/1. Does this make me a horrible person?

    Also, I actually prefer bolt-actions but the PSG1 feels a tad bit more accurate than the L96 and the re-center is so much better. It's actually let me take out a group of 3 at the proper distance.

    Also. Hacker pro, I love you. CP bomb that takes out 4 dudes? Yes please.
