    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.

    what makes the 74u overpowered is it's high damage over range coupled with the fact that it has the most predictable recoil of all the SMG's. I highly doubt Treyarch can/will recode these things, so their only feasible options to balance it are the ideas they have already put out there (nerfing the grip and/or lessening its ammo).

    either that or put it with the AR's where it belongs so you lose the benefit of the SMG movement speed, but that seems highly unlikely also.

    Making shotguns a primary weapon was a very poor choice, especially when they aren't even good enough to stand up to some SMG's.

    There are some bad weapons, but most of the guns are good. You have to use different guns for different situations. Some are good all-around, like the FAMAS, AUG and Galil, some are more specialized. I think we all wish shotguns had a little more range. For now, we have to

    I really hope Treyarch makes a Black Ops 2 in a couple of years. I read the intel stuff on the wiki and there is a set-up for a sequel, and it sold well, so odds are good. The setting is cool and fairly unique. It is nice to see some different guns, even if half of the players use the Commando or the MP5 or the Aug.

    Yeah, I don't think there is an easy solution. It doesn't have a stock, so it doesn't make sense for it to be the rifles. It shoots a rifle round, so it doesn't make sense for it to be with SMGs. I think they should reduce its range.

    Just picked this up Monday night. Really enjoying the Multi-Player, even if I sorta suck at it.

    Add me and hit me up, think I'll be playing this a lot.

    PSN in sig.

    Edit: I dunno if it's the PS3 or whatever, but I do get the occasional system freeze and random disconnects while playing Multi-Player.
    Probably everyone else gets it too, but I figured I'd mention it.

    I have disconnects and trouble finding servers sometimes. I play on ps3 too. I don't know what the deal is. It doesn't really bother me though.

    What was the Treyarch dev guy's twitter? The one with ak74 discussion. Search is off and I can't find the post linking it.

    edit
    found it
    In the proposed patch notes for v1.06 they were talking about making the 74 + grip less effective.

    AK74u fixes are being debated here.

    I love the shit out of the Uzi. It's so hilarious to use! If you get very lucky or can control the recoil, you WILL get a chopper gunner, I did this. No, stop looking at me like I'm a filthy lying son bitch!

    real life AKS-74u's do have a stock, it just folds up. it shouldn't be listed as an SMG because it is a carbine, same as the Colt Commando. /gun nerd

    in-game, the 74u has the same damage/range stats as the MP5K, it's just that since it has very predictable recoil (even more so with a grip attached) it is more effective at longer ranges. I'm not sure that things like recoil and damage stats are things Treyarch is willing to tinker with in this instance, which is why they are looking at nerfing certain attachments.

    Ah, I forgot to render it.

    I think the solution to the ak74u "problem" is a reduction in range. It doesn't have a shoulder stock, so it should be a short range in your face type weapon, like an SMG.

    Saying "it sold well" is kind of like saying "a few people bought tickets to see Avatar."

    I'd think a sequel is pretty much a slam dunk at this point.

    Hoping to get some play time in this weekend with those of you on PS3. Really loving Sharpshooter right now, even for low stakes.

    I want to know what you mean by "shorter range" since every non-shotgun in the game has bullets that go the same distance.

    I'm not sure exactly. Something needs to be changed so it behaves more like an SMG. More recoil? Wider spread? I don't know.

    I want to know why your tone is always so grumpy. If you are not bitching about something, you are still talking in a curt tone.

    I like the fact that shotguns won't send people into second chance anymore. Once I get tired of running around with akimbo smgs like a moron I might go back to using shotguns for being stupid and getting myself killed in most situations.

    Weakening the RC cars is pretty nice as well, although slowing them down may make them easier to drive and help a little bit.

    I regularly shoot nowhere near an RC and end up killing it anyway.

    Then, when I try to hit them, I absolutely cannot.

    Fire about six inches to a foot in front of it depending on your latency and it'll go down real nice. I can get them easily now.

    Also, the shotgun change? I hope it actually visibly gibs people now when they die to it. Like the W@W shotguns.

    That's cool, but it has nothing to do with Black Ops.

    I want to work on my reflexes and start using the tomahawk. I've seen some hilariously awesome tomahawk montages.

    I will hold out hope that a future patch will increase the range of shotguns. Perhaps reduce the spread of the buckshot pellets.

    I wonder what they did to the ak74u. He didn't say. Hmmm.

    Make a class with the worst guns you can think of, tomahawk, and Scavenger.


    the only way to get really good at the tomahawk is to have Scavenger so you don't feel bad about "wasting" your hawk by throwing it at anything other than a sure-shot.

    Being a devout tomahawk user, I'm obligated to tell you that it is objectively the best way to play and infinitely rewarding.

    My load outs that have been working for me.

    Assault - Aug with reflex/extended mags - Scav pro, warlord pro, tac mask. Refillable flash or nova gas for clearing rooms

    Sniper - L96 with variable zoom / Python with speed loader - Scav pro, Scout pro, Tac Mask with flash bangs. Plenty of ammo to start. Flash bangs when you got to move or hamper the enemy. Strong pistol that can drop in 2 to 3 shots

    LMG - M60 with Extended ammo and Red dot and Strela-3. Hardline pro, warlord pro, Hacker or tac mask. Tac grenade of choice. This is a crowd raper and is built to fuck kill streaks

    As far as kill streaks go I'd recommend to start Spy Plane, SAM turret, Napalm or Care Package

    Sam Turret will get you a TON of points fast. This thing is going to chew Air Planes up and will drop all choppers in 2 shots. Lasts a good amount of time. In objective game types you put it behind you spawn and it will keep the sky clear.
