Gun Game in the original Call of Duty: Black Ops has a crucial flaw which hopefully will be remedied if the mode is included in the upcoming Black Ops II.
I've play a LOT of gungame in CS:S and Arms race in CS:GO and I tend to agree with the author, starting with pistols only aids the better players as they're quick to progress which in turn rewards them with the more powerful weapons while facing the less skilled still stuck on pistols. A simple fix is to allow servers/games to be customised, much like in CS. Starting with the most powerful weapons allows for a more even playing field. It's also useful to up the kills required per weapon as the games can be over before you know it with single kills. They ripped off CS with the original idea, hopefully they can rip off some of the customisation and options.
