Everyone's favorite bald guy and Creative Strategist, Robert Bowling, has replied to a tweet and confirmed that everyone's least favorite and rage inducing perk "Commando" has been removed from the game.
im so buying this game OMG there is no commando! it's complete new game! /s
Well, people complained about the perk, now it's gone. This is what we (you) asked for.
... but I like going commando. =(
^^On the way to work. A fat, old man... *shudders*
This game is just sounding better and better with every useless piece of information people decide to write a news story on. Just wait and write a full perk list when it's available. That one piece of information is not news worthy.
Commando isn't just any perk though. It was a major flaw that thousands of people complained about. Get off your high horse.
How am I on my high horse? I do care about the perks but are we gonna do this with every single perk that isn't in the game? Just seems a bit of a waste if they can consolidate it into one article detailing full perks and weapons and attachments.
@Kee Probably not every perk. But we're happy to see this, you know? Commando - it put people off, now they have one more reason to come back.
Kee has a point. At this point Bowling could take a massive dump and walk out of the stall with a TP square stuck to his shoe. The result would be two separate headlines on the front page.
yeah, i always keep reading better and better news about mw3 and i always think to myself, this game is going to be so raven
he forgot to add but stopping power and juggernaut are still in though LOL!
I wouldn't mind if stopping power came back. At least more than 1 person will come up on radar when a UAV is up. I just hope they don't use Black Ops Perks=Appearance system. Everyone with ghost looks like a freaking bush.
What did commando do and why did people hate it?
Gave an invincible, inconsistent, exaggerated lunge when knifing resorting to many cheap deaths and panic knifing kills It was buggy and was meant to be tweaked. It never happened
oh yeah. I remember not being able to use it because it was hard to judge the range sometimes. Or sometimes I would jump right past people instead of knifing of them. It was never very useful for me because it was so unreliable.
It increases the melee range, and why people hate it? i don't know because i never care about it.
um k last i checked it was 2011 where gaming is taking strides and have good quality, game play and even graphics but by the sound of this its still 2007
So wait, I can no longer pull the Halo sword trick anymore? Well that just blows, I like flying at some noob with a knife while they hope their shotgun will kill me. Not really, it is a fun perk but it is a pain when you aren't using it.
No halo sword, samurai, machete anymore...
COD still is crap
What about Last Chance or Last Stand or Second chance or WHATEVER THE FUCK ITS CALLED?! This surely has to be the next perk to get rid of seeing that it's one of the most hated perks on Hardcore Teammatches
I have no idea why it hasn't been removed yet. But I have an idea. It seems like IW and Treyarch like to differenciate themselves from one another. So they come up with different perks and features. Even the names of the perks. Treyarch were the ones to implement last stand in CoD3. If enough people bring this up. Surely IW will get pissed and remove the perk. At the same time i'm thinking what horrific new perk would they add to replace Last Stand.
whats wrong with Last Stand? JUst shoot em a lil more when ther on the ground.. there only usin a pistol for crying out loud haha
We have known this for over a month
I get why people hated commando, it was a fairly cheap and senseless perk. However I loved having it on my LMG class, it was really useful because LMG's are crappy up close and it gave me a fighting chance in CQB. I'd rather see it go then stay however, too many noob nuggets running around with Marathon Lightweight Commando and just knifing, that crap gets old.
COD has CQB !!??
What was the perk that gave infinite amount of noob tubes?
One man army
Ah that's the one. That was annoying as hell.
one man army and scavenger
Get rid of lax stand, one man army, danger close and put in a perk to balance out coldblooded/ghost.
You can't really counter act something thats ment as a counter. Cold blooded/ghost is to counter killstreaks so i dont really see how it would be balanced?
The only thing I liked about the commando perk was when it turned pro. I just liked using it for the no fall damage.
it should level the gameplay out a bit.
more like remove the story and sell the online for $30
Everybody has known for a while about this lol
Am I dreaming or are they really listening to us
Strip it back to COD4 tbh up the graphics give mod support and proper coverage on dedi servers and add dedis to the console version and get the ball rolling again, Tbh everything after cod4 has sucked ass. Its been a mess theres reason why cod4 was te last proper competion COD. IW need to look at this and start listening to what gamers need.
i agree black ops and MW2 lost the pc audience.IW would laugh to death at your suggestion and youd be fired for saying that if you were working
WaW was good. Especially the PC version, since they patched the MP40 and it was no longer the end-all railcannon of devastation it was in the console versions. They nerfed various guns in the console versions, but never the MP40, dunno why. Otherwise, WaW was still a great game, same gameplay as CoD4 except in a dark WW2 setting.
thank god commando is for noobs
Personally I never had any problem with commando, all it really did was help develop a certain playstyle just like stopping power, danger close and and scout do for their own respective classes. Sure maybe commando deserves to be nerfed so that there isn't an epic lunge anymore, but personally I thought it was perfect for people (like me) that enjoyed running around with a USP or M1911 and tac knife use that primarily instead of an assault rifle or SMG and use a throwing knife and marathon/lightweight/commando. BO made the game boring for me because it took out these perks that helped define different playstyles and classes and just made assault rifles the class that you need to win and get those high k/d's. So I would like if IW would actually put in commando and those other most hated perks as long as they were extremely nerfed so that they could still make using weapons other than assault rifles enjoyable and still give you a fighting chance and help break up the whole "I HAVE to use the FAMAS to win" mindset so that the game itself is more fun and not just the same over and over. And no I wasn't a noob that ran around JUST knifing and abusing commando. The USP was a decent gun if you know how to use it (like I did) and could be on par against a lot of assault rifles on damage, maybe not range, but it and the M1911 were really good.
Black Ops doesn't have Commando and the melee is still broken...
as long as there is lag the melee will always be broken...
This is a step in the right direction. However, Commando was not the only problem and we also have to see what happens next, as in what perk does it get replaced with? If it gets replaced by a more ridiculous perk or something more balanced.
Good, commando and juggernaut for dickless people. Another horrible perk losers like to use is situational awareness in uncharted 2.
No LAST STAND PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yes! no overpowered noobs! than u infinity ward!
shit double post. wish u could delete comments
get rid of auto aim
Definitely!!!! I notice you got disagrees.... it amazes me that people want to play a game that does half the work for them..... surely playing a FPS online is about testing your skills against other people while having fun.... but although people who are no good at FPS's may consider auto-aim to be fun.... personally I think it is a loser addition to a game.... as it is pretty much like admitting you are not up to the job on your own!
alright!!! no more Halo lunge.
The more I hear aboute MW3, the more I think it might actually be a great game. CoD4 was excellent, and they said they want it to be more like that... time will tell...
i could care less, BATTLEFIELD 3 HERE I COME!
I'm not a COD fan, but if MW3 can be as close as MW1 as possible, it will turn out to be a great game.
Show us the MP footage already.
Something along the lines of Black Ops was great, except for Second Chance, its the most bullshit perk ever. Cold Blooded/Ghost can stay since its always been there but people didn't start bitching about it until the most overpowered perks were gone, then they attacked the next one.
I hear they replaced "Commando" perk with something called "ChuckNorris", is it true?.
i like commando perk it was my favorite perk in MW2.. many people don't see it but there some skill involve using commando perk you just got to know how to use it right..
In MW2 you don't need any skill to knife a person using Commando. All you need are Marathon, LightWeight & Commando with Tactical Knife.
there is skill involve with it you just got to know how to use it right...anyone can run and gun with it but that the simple crappy way. the better way to used it likes Hunting class with hide and seek and with the right Equipments AND GUNS Marathon, LightWeight & Commando (i never used Tactical Knife) is actually a good way to used it but i seen so many players used that combination and fail with it.. you just got to used evasion, precision and tactics and intelligence.. but relying on melee (knife) is bad.. guns are helpful to and never confront the enemy directly...only used knife if are about to get your prey and that the thrill of the hunt..but saying there no skill involve with knifing commando perk is just Human ignorance
@Naruto_Uzumaki.............i disagreed with you because you said you need skill in cod to use commando to knife a guy from a mile away and giving an explanation for and trying to make it sound cool with your "thrill of the hunt" garbage LOL stupidest shit i ever heard. Commando is garbage and cheap and no one uses light weight/marathon/commando for tactics they just race around like chickens with there heads cut off and shoot people with a ump or a shotgun or stab them from a mile away with tactical knife...... ..i agree with you HCG!
If you are "hunting" people by hiding, being evasive so you are not seen till you get the kill then what do you need commando for anyway? if you sneak up on someone the commando or no commando, they are as good as dead !! The problem with commando was that you didn't need to sneak. Commando + lightweight ( throw in a little bullet lag ) and you could run at someone, even if he saw you shot first and put 2 or 3 rounds into you, you would still lag through it all and get the kill. That does NOT take skill!! Thats why it really broke the game. If there was not the problem of being able to lag through close range shots with it, you can be sure you would not get half the kills you think you could. it takes skill to know when to flank and stay unseen by someone to the point that you get the drop on them for a knife kill, but you don't need commando for that. Commando was just cheap and it didn't require any kind of skill. Marathon, lightweight and Commando is the exact setup that all the noobs used to run round the map like the flash on crack and just run through bullets and stab. If you use it any other way, well you could do the same and not use them at all.
then whats the point in telling you when you don't listen.. saying that commando perk is a cheap perk is showing your Human arrogance and ignorance
I think the ignorant person here is you if you really believe that it takes skill. It breaks the game play, if you can't see that you are beyond help. I did listen, loud and clear..
Now they should remove Stopping Power, Akimbo Shotguns and stackable killstreaks. In fact they should follow BO and make shotguns a primary weapon.
The only news MW3 is getting is annoying stuff they're removing, not new and exciting stuff they're adding. Nice lazy strategy there Activision you lazy pricks.
