This patch just for PC, or are they fixing the models (again) on consoles too?
Government Cheese  +   1745d ago
Probably won't be patched for another 2 weeks because of certification.

Great a patch...
...Too bad this patch should be unnecessary in the first place. Response be damned, each patch only certifies the broken mess that Infinity Ward has made.

This is so dumb, whats the point of equipping fmj if u dont get more damage. I tried the duel 1887s and the dual rangers now shoot farther, has more damage, and can fire 4 shots compared to the 1887s 2. They could atleast update the weapon stats as its showing the 1887s on the screen with double the range of the rangers. The stupid small minority had to complain about the 1887s. Any decent player knows how to defeat it.

Any decent player doesn't use them. So stop whining that you can't one-shot people from a mile away anymore.

@ Milo Garret

they should just take the whole akimbo out and be done with it.

as the other guy pointed out, now the rangers are more powerful and all the noobs will just be running around with them.

there is not much point having them in the game if they are going to be so gimped they are useless all together.

true any good player had no need to use them and that still stands. but it was still fun seeing noobs run around with them and then picking them up and owning them with their own weapon then listening them cry about you owning with them.

anyway, it's not a problem now, everyone has taken up running around with commando which i think is even worse.

@Lord

I don't know anyone who doesn't think those weapons are lame and OP (at least since before the patch). Also, not only does running around dual wielding those not make any sense whatsoever, but why should a freaking shotgun from 1887 be better than the modern ones? (specifically the AA-12 because a ton of research and design went into making it)

And yes, you can kill people using them. But look at before the patch, everyone was using them. That's a clear indication that something was a bit, well, lame.

Edit: I know not everyone was using them, but a large portion of people were.

Akimbo 87s are just straight up garbage. I can understand if you use it sparingly, but if you start the game using it, you shouldn't still be using it by the end.

MWF2 is a true testament of how stupid mass gamers are nowdays.
neonlight45  +   1745d ago
that now I have to disagree with, just cause someone isn't praising Killzone 2 over MW2 or any PS3 exclusive for that matter doesn't mean they can't enjoy they play style they like.
Anorexorcist  +   1745d ago
Stupidity can come in large numbers, but I don't think MW2 is a case of this.
MW2 is a really fun game and it's massive success is proof of the longevity the game has (I am obviously referring only to the online portion of the game.)

The exploits and glitches that have been witnessed since launch have shown some degree of carelessness on Infinity Ward's part, but hey the game continues to improve.

It is a great game...when everyone is playing straight, but when they aren't, hey I got Killzone 2 right at my fingertips!

Your comment is a testament to how stupid people as a whole have gotten.

Blah blah, you hate MW2. We all know. I would bet that at least 90% of this site hates it as well. No one gives a sh*t about your worthless opinion though. The reason I keep playing the game, is because I very very rarely run into glitchers, and when I do, it's not that bad to me. It doesn't make me want to leave the match in a childish anger pouting my way back to the main menu like a little b****.
madjedi  +   1745d ago
if it takes a internet site, to show you how stupid people can be, you don't deal with the general public much do you
@2.3 A puncuation error and a semi-rude statement not targeted at anyone in particular, while alot less rude than yours, but didn't see anything stupid with his post.

Now your statement, about no one gives a sh^t about his worthless opinion, thats funny i could have easily said the same about your opinion, do you ever wonder why you only have 1 bubble.

You know all you needed to post was despite the glitches/glitcher you still enjoy the game, and not start with personal attacks, it only makes you look like a jackass.

So are the people getting frustrated and quitting to the main menu children pouting or are they b^tches, thats 2 entirely different definitions? So i guess your the type of guy likes to trash talk the people he beats at games, and likes to pwn the noobs hard to.

Judging by your post i guess your an annoying alpha male type, but i could be mistaken, it's unfortunate that you cannot post again to either confirm or refute that.

In some cases this is true. Heck, look at all the folks that bought Halo 3...

totally agree, some people really believe Gran Turismo is a driving simulator lol.
Guido  +   1744d ago
^^ I know!
Even the developers think so! But at least the sales of Gran Turismo are not a testament of how stupid mass gamers are nowdays since we all know it is in fact, a great game.

just goes to show the power of mind over matter.

it's even more hilarious that the devs believe it.
BigKev45  +   1745d ago
We need a new patch for the 360!
Ausknight  +   1745d ago
I agree
The Xbox 360 version of the game has some severe limitations and shortcomings which are slowly but surely breaking the gameplay and turning away even the most hardened gamers from this title.

* Akimbo Shotguns (of any sort) need to be nerfed.
* Knifing needs to be toned down
* 203/Nade spam needs to be nerfed.

Why? Because these three tactical options are being used more than conventional weaponry to play the game. It's fkn MODERN WARFARE and annoying as HELL to have some idiot Marathon/Lightweight around the map with these weapons scoring top kills over and over and over.

* Live hosting outside the US needs to be fixed. Lag for anyone not in the US is bad and the server stability is utter crap.
* Running without a perk is silly. What, a fully trained modern combat soldier can't run 20 feet without running out of breath?!
* Kill stealing SUCKS! You shoot someone first and they drop into Final Stand mode - someone else finishes them off and YOU get the assist?! LAME!
* The Kill Steaks need refinement and adjustment. The gameplay is promoting selfish/camping styles with no consideration to tactical objectives or team based work.

With Bad Company 2 nearly here, Infinity doesn't have much time to fix these glaring faults before people flock to a new banner.

MW2 is a really polished late generation FPS, but the competition is almost here and like many, once Bad Company 2 hits the scene I think it's going to make the gameplay issues with MW2 stand out like a sore thumb...

Wow, that was a great comment. Bubbles to you.
blahblah123  +   1745d ago
Infinity Ward loves campers. The game is designed around hiding spots.

I wouldn't nerf the tac knife commando, lightweight package. It is a good loadout to swap to when there is a house full of campers. You can run in there and clean house.

What I don't like is when there are two Harriers and a Chopper Gunner or Pave Low out at once. By that point, the nuke isn't far behind.

when r we going to see this for the consels, probably never cause IW is garbage at supporting the community
phantomshadow  +   1745d ago
Oh shut up already.
QQcrybaby  +   1745d ago
no dedicated servers, nothing to see here.
ThePostalDudeX  +   1745d ago
Dedicated servers haven't been bothering me that much, I RARELY get into a game higher then 110 ms, Mine usually is 50 or 70. I loved dedicated servers because they offered the chance to be a part of a community. Lets face it Dedicated servers won't really be missed by common people.
bozebo  +   1744d ago
No, they will. There aren't many pc gamers who don't know what a server is. And those who don't learn quickly - it also enlightens them more about the technology and engineering of the infrastructure; which can't be a bad thing.

But iwnet could have hooked into the server application and still allowed matchmaking features and control over the game - at the same time getting rid of cheaters. The server would have to be a signed app and well monitored as of course it is just as hackable (variable changers etc) as a p2p host application. But when connected more adaptably to iwnet it would be easier for iw to monitor and handle (ie, blocking ips from being servers, and flagging well-known server companies as pure servers; when control measures are met by the host - ie restricted ftp etc. so the admin can't abuse things). Not only that but games without rules could have no exp. The options are far greater with a dedicated server system, p2p could coincide easily.
bozebo  +   1744d ago
It also broke the game. There is now a strong chance the host's machine will crash after changing map on the PC version.
ThePostalDudeX  +   1744d ago
I'm trying my hardest to hate IWnet but after giving it a fair try I've come to like it, Although I will always miss Deticated servers In the COD series and I hope they don't continue the IWnet trend in the next COD. I do however love how the matchmaking system changes up the maps as opposed to one server that you have really good ping too playing the same boring old map you've played a million times.
bozebo  +   1744d ago
Join a non-24/7 server then lol.
I have to admit most games have like 99.9% badly managed servers, and the owners of the good ones eventually break up/fall apart so they go down the drain too :( but it's way better than matchmaking while it lasts.

Plus, there is no reason matchmaking can't exist with dedicated servers too.
yourgodisdead  +   1744d ago
Akimbo..
is for noobs and boy scouts. And the boyscouts love to camp =]
ThePostalDudeX  +   1744d ago
I agree, nothing makes me angrier then a couple of retards with Akimbo sitting in a corner, IF I do manage to kill him I'll pick them up and use them and I feel like a GOD with those things in close combat situations. But on the topic of people using them it's just a fact that some people just don't know better then to play fair, It's IW's fault for making them as overpowered as they are.
Kemicalbeliefs  +   1744d ago
Surprisingly I've found that its the top and bottom of the rankings who camp. I'm matched up with prestige people these days and a very high percentage of them seem to have got there by camping.
You see it in their play, they are rubbish and sit in a building all game. Wooh! really exciting.
The last couple of days I've been on games with each team camped in separate buildings waiting for each other.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zz

Oh and to the guys who do infinite run with commando knifing....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Each to their own I guess.......
B00M  +   1744d ago
Akimbo 1887's was so fun, so easy. But thats what made the game borin, especially gettin killed by them. Havent played MW2 in ages, was dissapointed.
AEtherbane  +   1744d ago
So..
I'll give it a week before all these problems begin to happen again. there are the most random glitches int he game.... its getting problematic. many of the times ive played the game online, i've run into a glitch somewhere or another...
Kemicalbeliefs  +   1744d ago
I give it about a month mate, then it will be Bad Company 2 and bye bye MW2.
360hasnogamesfor2010  +   1744d ago
mark my words.. in one week another patch for more and more glitchs.. ;)
Scotty056  +   1744d ago
I honestly don't care anymore. Infinity Ward dug their own grave on this one, with all the glitches and stuff. I'm so sick of the excessive camping, noob tubing, and tactical knifing, that I've moved on from MW2. It is honestly the worst game ever.
