The patch has some fixes that aren't for DLC. I don't see why they wouldn't get it. At some point anyway.

Does this patch fix quick scoping????? I hope so.

Wii u sucks.

I understand all the patches but making the AN-94 weaker is a bummer. Plus I saw no patch for when players can make themselves look like the sports cars on Raid.

Sniper rifles rate of fire been nerfed ? they're probably after the quick scopers which is good. imo they should have nerfed the ak's hipfire instead of it's damage. aside from that what they should really fix is the god damn camera angles, where someone can see you in his screen while you cant see him in yours at the same time, that is ridiculous. also they should nerf the penetration of all weapons, blops 2 walls feel like they're all made out paper ffs.

That has NOTHING to do with camera angles and everything to do with net code/lag compensation. It ruined the game for me. People with super low pings (30-50) or high pings(120 and higher) will be able to see you before you see them and their bullets register properly. The whole thing is FUBAR.

I honestly don't know what it is but it happens frequently and leaves you with frustration, i remember lag from previous COD's (specially Bo1) but nothing like this, i mean this even happens when i'm playing offline locally .
just like in this video and countless others http://www.youtube.com/watc...

The broken camera isn't part of the net code, it's an issue with the camera that cannot be fixed. I see they still neglect to patch the 870 shotgun that rules this game too.

@Veni Vidi Vici
You like complaining about net code don't you?

@Master-H lowering the RoF of sniper rifles has no effect on quick scoping only slowing the speed of ADS would effect that. Also considering it was only reduce by something like 0.01 seconds it probably won't be a noticeable difference.
Master-H  +   808d ago
No , the rate of fire decrease makes it take longer to shoot with the sniper , making quick scoping a lil slower, they also nerfed the sprint in-out time, which increases increases sprint-recovery time which slows down ADS making quick scopig slower as well.

Aim for the head and any gun is deadly

Then why do people get hitmarkers from hitting someone in the head doing a head glitch? I have put 2 3burst from a M8 into someones head, head glitching and they did not die. Hitmarkers in a head glitch is something that should not happen.

not in BO2, head shots are like the lottery.
jjb1981  +   806d ago
It's their wacky NET code and lag compensation that screws up the collision detection.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   808d ago
No wonder when I was using the An94 earlier I was like "man this gun fucking sucks did they nerf it?"
famoussasjohn  +   808d ago
lol exactly how I felt about the PDW after they nerfed it.
IIC0mPLeXII  +   808d ago
Man seriously what is the deal? The last few CoDs have ruined the AK series for me and that was my go to AR since MW1.

Hopefully Ghosts brings it back.
famoussasjohn  +   808d ago
lol I know right? Mw2 AK was god awful, BO1 ak had bad sights and kicked everywhere too, now the AN94 which was great is getting ruined. Ghost better not be an SMG and shotgun cluster.
jjb1981  +   806d ago
That's why I use the SCAR now
Skate-AK  +   808d ago
I play Hardcore if I play so I don't really notice nerfs.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   807d ago
Hard Core Search&Destroy.
Kidmyst  +   807d ago
I used to hate hardcore but BO2 I love it, so tired of putting rounds into a guys head/chest area to have them turn around with one shot and kill me. Hardcore is much better and I hope Ghosts is the same or fix non-hardcore. But that probably won't happen.
