    So, yeah. This is the part of the annual Call of Duty Waiting Game that I love/hate the most: there's a ton of new information hitting the internet, and plenty of new videos up every day ... unfortunately, they're posted by people who have no idea how to play Call of Duty. Case in point (includes a pretty epic javelin fail at about 1:40, by the way):

    Here's some Domination footage from an equally terri-bad player:

    There's a new loadout slot called "Weapon Proficiency". It's not really a Perk, though. Basically, the more you use a weapon, the more proficiency points you gain with it. Once you've reached certain point totals, you can purchase proficiency benefits for that weapon. You can have one Weapon Proficiency on a weapon at a time. They include:

    Proficiency: For Assault Rifles
    Kick: Reduced recoil when firing.
    Impact: Bullets carry more damage through materials.
    Attachments: Two attachments can be added to a weapon.
    Focus: Reduced flinch when hit.
    Breath: Hold breath while aiming down the sights.
    Stability: Reduced weapon sway while aiming down the sights.

    Proficiency: For Sub Machine Guns
    Kick: Reduced recoil when firing.
    Range: Increase the effective weapon range.
    Attachments: Two attachments can be added to a weapon.
    Focus: Reduced flinch when hit.
    Melee: Faster Melee
    Stability: Reduced weapon sway while aiming down the sights.

    Proficiency: For Light Machine Guns
    Kick: Reduced recoil when firing.
    Impact: Bullets carry more damage through materials.
    Attachments: Two attachments can be added to a weapon.
    Focus: Reduced flinch when hit.
    Speed: Increased movement speed when using this weapon
    Stability: Reduced weapon sway while aiming down the sights.

    pfft, I don't care well they play, it's interesting to see the new stuff in action.

    Liking that new announcer (and that sounds like the return of an old announcer in the second vid) and the USAS 12 seems to pack a serious punch.

    That javelin fail was pretty bad though...

    Perhaps it was this person's first time using one.

    Edit: Wat... maybe Sniper Rifle's fall under AR proficiency? Why would I need to hold my breath while ADSing an AR?

    acogs not being total fucking shit?

    In previous games I was always like, oh man this FAL is pretty awesome with this non-swaying iron sight, I bet it would be like twice as awesome if I had some magnification! *one acog install later* Why oh why does it magically sway all over the place for no reason? The snipers sway too but I can hold my breath for 1/4 of a second to steady my aim, why can't I do that with an acog?

    I wasn't even thinking about for MW3. I know that I'm running support all day, erday. Have they shown gun level unlocks? I don't want to have to invest a week to get a G36. Such an awesomely designed AR. I don't know squat about the tech of the real gun, I just love the look of it.

    But didnt they take out acog sway in mw2? Maybe its for thermal scopes.

    But then whats stability for then?

    Having the same clan tag does not create a sense of union or brotherhood - it just keeps your goddamn lobby from filling up.

    "OH SHIT COMPETENT PEOPLE BACK THE FUCK OUT"

    edit: I am guilty of doing this all the time

    That's why the lobby leaderboard is great. If my team are all trash master pros with me being the only good one then I leave. Basically if it goes me at the top (because I'm always at the top) and then 6 guys on the other team I am leaving that lobby. When I play with other people that usually doesn't happen though. Even the people I play with that barely have 1 k/d usually help the team out a bunch because their play style puts the other team off guard.

    and I wonder about my neighbors even though I don't have them

    This is actually something I hadn't thought of.

    Maybe it'll wind up being a certain amount of assist points, because if you can just spam the shit out of tactical grenades like you're saying, then that's also bonkers.

    Now, you have to get an assist, which means they have to be killed after you flash them. So, yea, I guess if all 6 of the enemy team gets flashed by you and then someone kills them all for you, you'll get a 3 kill streak....

    but couldn't you have just chucked a grenade and killed all 6? Or maybe you were being hyperbolic, I can't tell.

    I throw stuns at red dots on the radar all the fucking time. Most of my assists come from them.

    If you build a perk set where you can just toss infinity grenades, then have someone go in and sweep the room, you could make bank.

    oh no that makes call of duty sound tactical, nononononono

    Flashbangs have like 10x the range of a frag.

    Most outdoor maps you can throw a flash bang straight up in the air (literally straight up) and since flash's have a timer instead of waiting till it comes down it'll explode in mid air. This 'flash' doesn't actually blind anyone, but it does give you assists.

    If a (blops) 10 point assist counts as half a kill, you will be able to spam the shit out of secondaries from behind cover and rack up assists.

    Support classes are going to be pretty dang formidable. What with marking targets and getting kills from bitch nades. You can probably rack up the Osprey Gunship withot shooting every single round. Plus your bitch nades will be helping others get kills leading to their own killstreaks, so every enemy killed will be worth 1.5 killstreaks if you have a friend follow you around shooting shit.

    I'll be surprised to not see a bunch of assists whoring with flash, stuns and missed nades. Considering that the maps in MW3 are said to be smaller than those in blops and MW2... at least that's what I heard Woody say. Something about a medium sized map in MW3 being somewhat small compared to a medium sized Blops & MW2 map.

    It's tactical to the point where your assists get you a AC-130 then it's "Fuck you guys! I just won this shit.".

    Aren't Hardline and Scavenger in the same perk list? That is unless you're running Specialist.

    Here, someone talented make the trollface comic:
    -Toss some flash bangs (trollface stickman throws bunches of grenades into a door)
    -bros kill mans (rageface stickmen with guns charge into room)
    -all perks from hardline pro assists (trollface or coolpose stickman with superman cape)

    Nope. They're basing perks off the MW2 model (which also means you can't visually ID people that don't show up on radar, or more annoyingly the ones who don't die to explosions) for some reason.

    My son woke me up at like 3am this morning, and I couldn't fall back asleep, so I stayed up and played a little CoD4 ... because, you know, fuck yeah, CoD4. I've never messed around with the Cheats section, so I'd never even heard of Ragtime Warfare, lol.

    This cracked me the fuck up this morning.

    MW3's possibilities are both intriguing and frustrating.

    I could potentially have a Skorpion and a L86 in the same build.

    But.

    They wouldn't let me dual wield them together at the same time.

    I'm not sure I could live with that sort of seperation anxiety.

    WAIT: if they would let me attach the Skorpion UNDERBARREL to the L86. I'd like that.

    I don't really care how unbalanced and unfun MW3 is to play.

    It looks interesting to make classes. BLOPS didn't have that unless you wanted to grind out the worst pro challenges in the game (tac mask pro, lookin' at you).

    My friend is working on a roguelike game you can play if you want to. (It has free demo)

    TacMask was the easiest perk to pro in the entire game. All you had to do was actually use your tactical grenades in a non-retarded fashion. I had it pro at level 15 on one of my prestiges.

    Marathon Pro, on the other hand...
