The Factgun would be a badass weapon in the game.

StanLee2195d ago

The truth about those balanced guns is, they're all the same. All the guns in the game look, feel and sound, the same! Treyarch always seems to have to most balanced, and well thought out and supported Call of Duty games but their games are also the most boring games in the series!

Treyarchs are the most boring? I can tell you haven't bought this one. Lightning fast multiplayer, and Multi-Team objective play is one of the more fun experiences I've had on any FPS. Let alone any COD. The campaign is crazy, as the campaign doesn't seem to take itself serious. Zombie mode is actually my least favorite out of the three, and it's still fun as hell. Which is saying a lot. I feel sorry for anyone who is having problems on the PS3, because this is probably my favorite cod ever.

those devs are laughing how they break records every year with same shit lol

Tonester9252195d ago

Did you play the game? Or are you just talking like the rest of the people on here?

Thatlalala2195d ago

I played Blops 2 last year, and the year before, oh yeah and the year before that.

This game is the least like the others. If you think this is the same, then you haven't played it. I'm happy Treyarch doesn't think they're perfect in every way like IW does. It gives them the drive to be better, which they have been.

Everyone uses weapon x, therefore weapon x is overpowered.

The Meerkat2195d ago

I've looked and I can't find this weapon x you speak of.

But seriously, other than being killed by quickscopers I haven't found any particular gun that's upset me.

extermin8or2195d ago

just for once everyone isn't using the same weapon, witht he exception of bloody bouncing bettys in S and D they are EVERYWHERE drives me nuts how many im having to avoid etc, i think the duck time should be lengthened a tiny amount that's all..

XB1_PS42195d ago

Haha, quickscoping is so much fun. lol

SilentNegotiator2195d ago

In that case, Weapon X is absolutely overpowered.

Honest_gamer2195d ago

im sorry what? everyone runs around with an MP5 and gets kills from one end of the map to the other
ex sas and mcnab, says its only reliable from 1 to 20 metes on a single fire, doesnt mention burst fire so i guess by the developers logic full fire means the whole map

CerebralAssassin2195d ago

But there isn't a mp5 on black ops 2...

extermin8or2195d ago

yeah thats not been happening on BO2 but on previous CODs such things drove me mad lol

Honest_gamer2195d ago

aw i got my guns mixed up :'( ah well the same thing holds true wih the 1st smg you start of with, thats what i thought wast the mp5 ;-)

XB1_PS42195d ago

It's called the MP7, and it's decently good. I wouldn't say overpowered. I do better the the new SCAR, and the 4 round burst assault rifle. I forget the name of it.

Honest_gamer2195d ago

i thin the most op gun is by far one of the hand guns, that shoots faster than the sparks come out of it :/ think its the last one maybe 2nd last but not to sure, hell i just run around with the mtar :/ i wish thye would put the g36c back in, loved that gun in my cod4 days, surpisingly i am liking black ops2 so far, and i ahvent liked a single one since waw

the_eddster2195d ago

One of the main problem is that unlike most COD games the worst perks are unlocked first. Ghost should be one of the first unlocks as everyone uses UAV nowadays due to the new scorestreak system, its unfair when a high rank player racks up a load of kills because he is the only to have ghost.
I appreciate that this issue will disappear in time but for the early days its devastating.

Rubberlegs2195d ago

Its not unfair though since Ghost isn't the same as was before. You always have to be on the move using Ghost with a UAV in the air, if you stop you will show up on the radar. It helps against those that camp/snipe with it.

Also more people need to start using Black Hat to take down UAV's. No one ever seems to use it and it helps out a lot for those that don't use rocket launchers. You can hack care packages with it too.

rezzah2195d ago

What are the chances of hacking care packages? Unless you play in that specific game mode, I forgot what it was called cause I dont play it.

Dropdeadll2195d ago

I wonder if ghost still works if you just shuffle in one spot.
