    True. Sadly the shotguns are less effective (his SPAS stuff was the best) and I've literally only come across TI boosters once.

    Yup, scanning through his comments it seems like the weaker shotguns and non-stacking killstreaks are the main reasons he doesn't play anymore. I know it's been said in this thread before, but both nerfing the shotguns to hell AND making them primaries was the wrong move. Should have picked one or the other.

    Regarding the AK74u, picking through Vonderhaar's Twitter it seems that in addition to nerfing the grip, they are also toying with the idea of also shortening both starting and Ext Mags ammo count. IMO it seems like the real issue with the 74u is that it has the most predictable recoil, which is coupled with its very good damage over range characteristic (also why does the 74u, which has an 8" barrel and fires an assault rifle round, have the exact same damage stats as the MP5K which has half the barrel length and uses 9x19mm ammunition?).

    This is of course ignoring the fact that the AK74u should never have been listed as an SMG in the first place.

    In real life, the AK74u is used in place of submachineguns. It is a submachinegun sized rifle. It shoots a round similar to the .223 round used in the M16/car(commando) and many other guns. It is a cool gun, but this is why it has problems in multiplayer videogames.

    A friend and I were debating Ghost while having a few games tonight. He thought it wasn't a problem; I disagreed. Then, as if on cue, the next few games are filled with Ghost. At one point UAVs only showed us one guy from a team of 6. It wasn't always that bad, but by the end he was agreeing with me.

    When it's a team of people who use it as a crutch throwing on your own Ghost class will get you out of a jam. I did that last night where I was struggling with my fun classes against a bunch of camping ghosts so I went Ghost suppressed 74u and fucked those guys going 26-10 at the end. I get great enjoyment out of killing Ghost users and shit talking them afterward. Not even in the lobby where they can hear, just to my team or myself.

    I run Ghost on a couple of my load outs. It makes it easier to kill aircraft.

    And it is in the game, and people are using it, so I consider it part of the game and just deal with it.

    The "solution" to Ghost is to stop relying on your radar.

    The "solution" to Second Chance is to engage enemies from a distance. Yeah, it does get screwy with lag, but so do a lot of things.

    Dover: I read your thread, the game is still getting traded. I'm not into slow, stealthy games with floaty controls. I play FPS/arcade-style racing games almost exclusively because anything else just bores me. You have no idea how many people can't believe I hate the Final Fantasy franchise.

    Anyone hopping on for Blops this morning/afternoon? I'm debating whether to put AC's credit towards Bulletstorm or CoD4.

    You guys would've hated me in MW2. Cold-blooded Pro, Bling Pro, and Ninja Pro with a silenced AK-47 with heartbeat sensor and silenced akimbo Rafficas. I took great delight in pissing people off with that build and directing traffic using my HBS to help my teammates get the drop on people.

    Yes, like I said it fires an assault rifle round. It's a carbine, not a subgun, and at least in the Russian military is used in the same manner the US military developed the M4 carbine for (special forces, vehicle crews, airborne infantry). You're correct that it is used to supplant subguns in certain instances, but it is largely used to augment them, not replace them. For example on urban ops in FSB strike teams, one or two guys will carry 74u's or Grozas and the rest of the team will be outfitted with submachine guns.

    Anyway this doesn't really effect anything in the game aside from annoy gun nerds, the bigger round the AK-74u fires still has the exact same damage stats as the MP5K.

    I have no problem with that build. Ninja countered HBS. To silence your weapons you suffered faster damage drop-off. And to take CB you sacrificed the best perk in the game: SP. Sure you were a stealth ninja, but your class was built so that you had to be: in a fair fight against an equally good player you would have been slaughtered. Ghost isn't a sacrifice like CB was.

    Edit: And I also wouldn't have minded because you would have been the exception. One Ghost player in a match is fine. Two, maybe when I'm in the mood. Three? Bugger off.
    You can't watch all the angles that many Ghost players could be coming from.

    Yeah, true. I mean, I usually could take someone one-on-one just due to the element of surprise, but if I encountered three people or more, I was completely fucked.

    I use Ghost on one class in Blops, but I rarely encounter anyone running it. And the ones who do usually aren't running a silenced weapon.

    So, I really want to move on from the Ak-74 for my SMG build, but I dont want to spend a fortune trying out every damn gun in the list until if find something I like. Anyone care to recomend me something good? I tend to lean towards accuracy first then rate of fire on SMG's.

    No. Heartbeat sensor is still bullshit since it forces you into using one perk, that one perk not being the extremely overpowered SitRep Pro.

    This is why I dislike running around with shotguns in this game. I lose any battles that aren't within 10'. I know the Skorpion has better range than the darn shotguns, but still. Akimbo? You crazy, Vyngaard.

    I would have made the AK47 available early on and maybe had the ak74u as the last smg. Adding grip would give a stock, the same as the Scorpion and Uzi.

    I don't know how they will fix it without nerfing it. Maybe reduce its range.

    I know want to make a clan tag DEAL or maybe make a deal with it emblem. Tiger with sunglasses? Skull with sunglasses? Maybe just a stack of sunglasses?

    My question there is why are you getting into a battle with a shotgun at more than 10'? The Skorpion is awesome. It is just horribly under appreciated. A great gun? No, but it will give you a good game and make that fun as well. Can't ask for much more.

    Burtle: Stop hating the MP5 and use it. It is a great gun. Stop hating everything that as slightly more kick than off balance washing machine or requires more than two bullets to put someone down.

    Not so crazy as you might think! The Skorpion when used akimbo pours out very high damage at close range and there's a sweet spot in the fields of fire between the two guns that can almost ensure a headshot. The only problem that is constant (outside of the obvious range issue) is that you'll run out of bullets rather quickly. Learning to balance the use of that sweet spot effectively is absolutely critical to surviving against multiple opponents, because if you haven't managed to kill the first two with initial bursts, you're going to be looking at two very nice but empty guns.

    This is where having a single scoped python is handy. Taking advantage of steady aim to fan it unsighted against surprise attacks or while aiming in to snipe targets who you get the drop on but are outside of your Skorpions' range works well too.

    Until you unlock the crossbow, but that's a glorious device in and of itself. <3 Xbow.

    I don't hate the MP5. It is just, objectivly, worse than other guns. And I pointed this out.

    It is a starting weapon. I have used it numerous times.

    Then I switch to something good.

    Or the Spectre, Kiparis, PM63 and maybe a couple others I am forgetting. Here though I will give you that you can't snipe with the MP5. Great gun but it does kick to much to snipe with. And in case you think I am hating on things you like, WRONG! Nothing better than running around with a MAC11. Warms my heart and soul. Same goes for the Olympia too. Those guns just look like they don't stand a chance. Then you kill someone with it. *Insert giggly noise here*

    I had a good run on Nuketown with the SPAS and Python+ speedloader. I got a headshot on a sniper in one of the windows with the Python. I think this is my load out for small maps. I could easily replace the shotgun with a SMG and probably get more kills, but this set-up forces me to learn and it is fun, just like my M14+flamer.

    And I had a good game on Array. I used Scav, I think Steady Aim and Hacker. I killed eight guys before I died the first time! :)

    And my clan tag is now DEAL, emblem is a skull with a biohazard symbol on the forehead wearing shades. 8-)
