But yes, the main MP is basically designed to sell CoD points to the impatient. Even the zombie crates replace one drop, with a pack of three one-use cards so it's always better to go to the MP menu and spend keys in there.

Eh, your mileage may vary. If you're chasing variants, yeah, go with the MP. But if you don't have anything to chase for, that's when you consider the Zombie crates.

Also rare Zombie crates give you three TWO-use cards. Even though that just means "you can burn that card over two games instead of one". And each one counts as three in-game, provided you're fine dropping $5k for the second use and $10k for the third use. Chances are, that'll only happen if you're fully perked and loaded with PaP guns, and have gotten the UFOs to move away from the traps.

Those QOS tweaks are just placebo bullshit. I keep lowering my upload speed like that Youtuber did and its not making a difference. The perceived benefit I thought I had was just the host rng. The game has been out almost a month and I haven't Prestiged so I guess I don't like this game as much as I thought.

What. That sounds stupid. ADVANCED usually means "CONSTANT UPDATES", not the same drat sweep as a regular UAV.

It sounds stupid because it is stupid. But then, this is Infinity Ward we're talking about. They thought UAV was so overpowered that they removed it from Ghosts and replaced it with SATCOMs. There's no way they'd include a legit VSAT type scorestreak. Advanced UAV was like this in MW3 as well, but at least it was in the support streak branch in that game (which coincidentally was the last Infinity Ward game with good/fun streaks).

What does Radar mode even do, I wonder. If the answer isn't a free Personal Radar, I'll write off the Vulture as a waste.

It creates a radar pulse (like Warfighter's Ping ability) centered on the Vulture every second or so. But since the Vulture is kind of apathetic about following you, if you're moving it spends a lot of its time pinging where you just were, which is not super helpful.

This games Vulture is just the Ghosts' Vulture and Owl put together. Did IW just copy and paste the code from it?

There best part is how it makes you choose between the two modes, as if IW actually thought it was competent at either.

It's literally worse at following you than real life autonomous drone tracking.

The meta is that in the future the Vulture was actually made by IW, which is why it doesn't work worth a poo poo.

If I have Moderate NAT in this game, I just start up MWR and its open again. I kinda want Raven to make their own COD since they seem to have the technical things down. Their double XP actually worked properly this weekend. Of course I didn't play it at all.

I found the vulture kills dragon calling card really easy. All you need to do is shoot the enemy not enough to kill him, but enough for him to be one shot, then die and let the vulture maybe kill him.

It's good that the vulture is "watching my six" so unless I am fully camping and looking up to watch his useless laser tracker all he does is video dope GoPro action of all my deaths before firing staples at the enemy.

why waste the two bullets when you can wait for a slight breeze or the sound waves from a grenade 40 feet away to do the job for you.

e: i got the vulture calling card third after the warden and thor and that sums up how bad the scorestreaks are in this game. Basically Robot guy, thor and scorchers should be your only setup. robot to get kills, thor to get kills from space and the scorchers to kill yourself when you're a kill away from one of the other two scorestreaks

I too get confused when (insert male protagonist's name) out of the blue says "I love (insert female protagonist's name who is the love interest)" to me while I'm playing (insert currently popular video game name).

I managed to stop a Merc's Steel Dragon by punching him dead tonight. I completely see problems with don't see any problem having a gimmick class where it's just punching people with two seekers and the perks that hide me from scorestreaks.

Agreed. Having played several rounds of Gun Game, knifing feels drat good.

Travel speed in this game is so high, that if you meet coming around a corner, or if you get a good slide in, the enemy is dead.

Its funny how matchmaking solo takes forever in this game for me, but I get more people in my party and suddenly it works fine. I tried playing TDM, Dom, Hardpoint, Defender, Kill Confirmed and Ground War today. I could only find games in TDM. The Ground War matchmaking put me into a Defender lobby. I don't know if glitched lobbies are a thing in this game, but I didn't want to find out.

Stick with Overwatch, this game is obviously a half-finished rushed copy paste, after Ghosts 2 was cancelled out from underneath IW.
My copy was gifted, and it's the newest CoD, so I'll keep playing, but it has serious issues in need of addressing by the developers.

You PC, or console Overwatch?
