I mean I'd still play it, but lobbies destroyed with mountains of emergency air drops, trying to cap B during the javelin glitch or care package knifers skipping around not to mention the infinite tubes really only made the game fun when you're the one doing all the fuckery, and we've already done that. I'd really like to see MW2 with all the exploits and glitches removed. And no infinate tubes. I don't even care about the extreme knifing range of commando or stuff like the range on the 1887's.

Maybe. Like, play it until you realize that MP is by and large the weakest its ever been in a loving CoD game.

Unrelated, but I'mma just hop on Zombos because I like that mode. If for some reason other people want to shoot Zombos, play Killing Floor 2 instead lol find WidespreadFrick on the ol' networks.

I'm developing a serious appreciation for Cryo Mines. They have a wide trigger radius, a wide blast radius, stop jetpacks, and can guard almost any lane approach, which changes a lot of places from 'shot in the rear end constantly' to 'pretty easily defensible'.

Doesn't hurt that using Resupply means you can run Combat Focus for more Thor/RC8/Apex hunting fun.

fe: Ace did some testing on the health regen on the FHR Windfall epic, it's better than I thought it was. If you're low health (<45 or so), it only heals a small amount per kill, maybe 10-15. But if you're above that mid level health mark, a single kill fully heals you.

Basically if you only get hit by one or two bullets, you'll heal to full with the kill. Likewise, if you get dropped just under the mid health mark but then go on a spree and kill 2-3 dudes, you'll bounce above the half health mark from one of the kills then heal to full instantly on the next kill.

I'm enjoying the campaign, at least.

Titanfall 2 has kinda ruined IW for me. The lag is garbage, and the gameplay just feels so heavy by comparison. And before I played either I was so done with jetpacking around levels and running on walls, but Titanfall 2 is just that good.

Shame EA put it out to die in the middle of shooter season.

There's a RAW and an NV4 nerf coming.

I think the weapon balance is pretty good overall, so I'm not thrilled about these changes. The Volk is useless now.

I was hoping IW wouldn't do the weapon tweaking like Treyarch did in BO3.

This is surprising because the ESPORTS community doesn't know about the RAW because they don't use LMGs, and the KBAR outclasses the NV4 in short range. I'd rather IW buff other weapons because there are a lot of weapons that have no reason to be used (no unique fun factor, duplicate roles.)

I will also second Titanfall 2 and I hope the rest of you will join me this weekend during the free weekend.

There is one called the s-ravage. It's a cool name.

Don't worry about killing or poo poo, look at that dope name. (Stands for poo poo ravage.)

The best shotgun is the reaver machete because you explode people with melee and it helped me max out my Wraith mission team thing early on. I don't think I ever fired it though...

I like the SPAS (or the S-Ravage if you would prefer that) simply for style points. That's why I always ran around like an idiot with the Model 1887 in MW3.

loving good

Silenced NV4 and RAW's are all well and good when I'm playing a 5 perk pick-up class but man there's really no need to use anything else unless your mission team demands you akimbo some pistols like a goddamed man.

A few long shot/point blank combo medals and 3 more quad feeds and I have the killer calling card, earning me the respect of the few children on IW that have found how to view the calling cards they don't have. Sorry dragon card, but gently caress your ground scorestreaks killed by aerial scorestreaks challenge.

After that I'll probably just run around with the Ripper or akimbo auto epic Kendell pistols until I reach nirvana.

Oh, sure if you're going by "wanting to look baller as gently caress and annoy people when you land that kill" then the Savage Ravage is the way forward. It's the only shotgun I use when mission teams ask for shotty kills but man it can be infuriating.

I got the other epic Reaver in a crate last night but can't remember what it does and I will never use it.

I have more point blank kills off the RAW then I do off any SMG or akimbo pistols. It really does not like missing.

Leveling up in Modern Warfare Remastered seems much slower than I'm used to in a COD game. They're locking some challenges behind level ups which might be an explanation.

And I wonder who thought Shipment was a good idea.

I actually used it as my main weapon for a while. the recoil is hilarious but I love it. Quite fun when you don't want your "get energy weapon kills" challenge to be "oh well I have this RAW/erad and a rudimentary understanding of aiming."

tbh even with AUAV knocking ghosts it's still prohibitively high to be considered as an actual utility. 150 above a warden and 50 less than a THOR, unless you're a Top Tier Player running those three (or higher) as a chain it's pretty goofy.

doubly so if you're playing with pubbies who don't understand how to utilize an active UAV to ensure kills/caps
