Okay here's some stats on how much I neglect the ones I love.

Just maxed our my 4th and final (until we get DLC) team.

Got my dragon master card from, I'm almost certain, destroying a vulture. This isn't the first time I've thought they counted.

I'm prestige 5, level 37.

I only use 2 guns as of today: specialist style legendary NV4 and specialist style legendary RAW. So glad to use all that salvage on essentially nothing.

I have run out of things to prestige unlock as you can't do the weapon attachments so fletchette grenade, you're next!

Did they ever add weapons past the October update for blops 3?

Also I bought it on the sale this week because I will return to that game. I like its multiplayer way better than IW.

they added a new SMG and AR in December - the SMG has a weird rechambering thing, the AR has a spin up time, neither are "great" guns

The AR is essentially an AR version of the P03 sniper right? Charged delay but then kills without mercy. Basically how everyone played with the P03 anyway.

Someone do the math on how much money you need to get everything.

Because I'm guessing the camos for each individual weapon (lol who loving came up with this), calling cards, and emblems are a big loving chunk of what you can get.

Then there's the dozens of gestures for each specialist. And their armors.

Then after all that, you'll see some weapons.

Oh and the no dupe rule is for rare and up so you can still get dupe commons.

It was like 600+ boxes as the camos really fatten up the pool.

It's 2 dollars per rare box, so that'd make it $1200+ (ignoring the bonus coins for bulk purchases)

They have a special 100 box bundle for 5000CP ($40.00) which you can buy multiple times, i believe.

How do I aim well with the THOR? Do I zoom in after firing? The default mode is really far and its tricky to aim into buildings and windows with it.

Turn off thermal (on a lot of maps). Helps you aim where the buildings aren't. I prefer the single fire mode for more kills, but tracking can be useful depending on the map.

Got a little over 4000 salvage now. So if I were going to craft an Epic weapon, should I go with the NV4 or the R3KT? The Epic LMGs and snipers are locked at the moment.

Chaos is supposed to be really good. Flatline is by and large worse than the stock NV4. R3KT is basically what the Volk should have been.

Invective is a good choice if available. Butcher definitely ain't worth it, and I haven't heard good things about Goliath.

Sorry for leaving earlier tonight, I got kicked out of the game and the ps4 refused to let me send messages to any of you in the party, saying "can't connect to the server".

Had a decent night but dear god ground war is filled with the sweatiest of little shits I've ever played in this. Whole teams of nv4 fallout hoping for a nuke. It was beyond unfun.

Props to the guy who took the ball in defender so he could hide in a tiny corner while his 8 stream buddies formed defensive lines for him, really brought that arcadey shooter feel that CoD has.

reduced ADS fire rate is still higher than the Flatline fire rate and people still thought that was OD

which btw it isn't because lord almighty do I wish I had saved the scrap to just get the chaos. NV4 with double stack laser benefits is psycho, they should have named it the NV4 Game Genie

Ahh the hip fire does make sense. Doesn't it slow the fire rate ADSING though?

Got my master killer card. Thank you vulture-bombardment-scorchers. Now back to frontline to gold my RAW and then...umm...not sure.

E: just saw DAY DAY'S reply. I golded the NV4 using the frontline so I guess I'd have no problems with the fire rate. I'll try and pick one up in a match.

It's lucky that infinity ward gifted us with the best epic essentially for free, once you get through the second lamest team. Go Gemini!

in what galaxy are dual hailstorms a good idea. i had to go to HC to grind out the 100 kills for the dog in space calling card and even that was painful, i couldn't imagine trying to kill regular level health enemies without ADSing that gun

maybe it becomes magical non-space garbage with laser but I highly doubt that

Don't buy it. Play TF2 or BF1 instead. It's technically gotten better since launch, but BLOPS 3 has the better classes/Rigs, and Scavenger actually works with deployables and launchers, which isn't the case in IW.

IW does have Hotdog (Dome?) and and Terminal (MW2) though. Not worth it if you don't live in a server city, if you ask me. No Theatre mode either. Parties can enter Gun Game/Infected though. And Frontier is what Hijacked and Nuketown always should have been.

I went back to Advanced Warfare. I just love the loosey-goosey movement of being able to short-hop dash forward right into a slide and then immediately go prone at the end of slide and kill dudes. AW's multiplayer content also just looks nicer in general. all the player models in IW are just hard to read and frankly the game's just too strict in MP.

Yeah the game's not got many players now but it's still fun as gently caress when you get a group going.
