Thought stopping power, final stand, and martyrdom were gone? Not quite. They do return in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but in the form of deathstreaks.
Painkiller, already. ;)
"Deathstreaks: Juiced: 4 deaths – move faster for a few seconds after spawning. Revenge: 5 deaths – see position of last enemy that killed you on your mini-map. Final Stand: 4 deaths – unlocks at lvl 32, most likely similar to last stand but with a primary weapon. Martyrdom: 4 deaths – unlocks at lvl 51, drop a live grenade after dying. Dead Man’s Hand: 6 deaths – unlocks at lvl 57, fall into last stand after dying with C4 equipped in your hand. Hollow Points: 5 deaths – unlocks at lvl 71, bullets cause more damage for one kill (stopping power)." At least it gets unlocked at level 71 instead of 10-20 or something.
i guess I'm gonna be committing suicide a lot just to earn that martyrdom lol
Isn't the point of death streaks suppose to be that it gives noob players a fighting chance? How are the noobs going to unlock it at level 71 when they keep dying? Furthermore, doesn't that mean only l33t COD players will unlock the extra benefits of dying multiple times? Aren't they good enough to make a come back without the aid of a death streak? This smells of hypocrisy and short sightedness to me. One of their designers should be sacked.
I kind of agree with Hayabusa's comment but leveling up in Call Of Duty games isn't hard at all. You just need to have a dedication and some luck. Keep playing modes like Headquarters Pro or Domination and you'll reach level 70 in no time. If you're really dedicated, you might get there in days or maybe in over a week. But still, they should've made it available at 40 if you ask me. Like Martyrdom in MW 2 (if I'm not mistaken). It's not that big of a deal anyway, you'll just have some extra power to kill 1 guy and then it'll return to normal.
Deathstreaks should never have been put in CoD. It's BS that people get unfair help just because they suck. They should just learn to get better.
Lol okay so they get rid of some and bring back others?
I've always hated Deathstreaks, but at least they're not bring back Painkiller.
I thought I saw the painkiller emblem in one of the multiplayer trailers :S hopefully not.
Final stand is WAY worse than painkiller. Final stand last as long as you can survive after you spawn.
Gives me more reason to suck at this game
Gotta earn that martyrdom son!
Wtf dead mans hand was suppose to be originally in mw2 my bro has this mw2 guide and it shows it in there.
actual pic or it didn't happen
I believe the last stand pro allowed you to use equipment in last stand, so you could equip c4 and detonate it but it wouldn't be really quick like this deathstreak.
Juiced seems pointless, especially for big maps
It's what I thought until I realized if someone is getting spawn trapped, it might come in handy.
A better solution would be to change the spawn system to help prevent spawn-trapping in the first place.
Minimum of 4 deaths in a row balances it out a little more. There are no painkiller annoyances at least and Martyrdom was fairly well handled in MW2 (aside from most things). Juiced sounds like fun. The Machinima director Hutch said it's like Lightweight x2 for 7 seconds. I know after I have a few deaths I really want to get straight back into the battle. Sounds like the best way to do so.
whats the problem with martyrdom, i thought it added a bit of excitement to the game, id personally love to drop multiple grenades if they wanted to tone it down a bit, you could pick up the fallen grenade and it gets added to your arsenal or the fallen grenade only has the abilty to kill the person how shot you
Seems much, MUCH more balanced. Thanks for listening to the people IW.
i thought robert bowling said there would be no last stand???
Wow. Kinda sucky perks to be relying on...
Why am I not surprised Infinity Ward can't make a balanced game anymore? -____-
I wish people would stop crying about games being balanced because what they mean is they want everything to work in their favor or the game must be broken. If you are running across deathstreaks a lot, then you are already beating the crap out of the other team. And these things are so minor that if they are a hinderance to you then you need to improve your game.
So u can die a million times and get super strong? GTFOOH. thats dumb
jeez more of a reason to get battlefield 3 over cod,just read this crap i don't want any of these things in my game,why the hell do we even need death streaks!!.
Yeah reward crap players. What joke. No wonder so many play this faeces.
Since when did it make sense to reward players who are bad at the game?!?!
What happen to just having a gun and grenade, and duking it out with each other?
Hmmm well theres something new, there are now deathstreaks, interesting, I wonder if people will die on purpose to get these deathstreaks lol
good ol' COD... rewarding players for playing bad.
yea i hate death streaks "hey you suck, heres your reward!"
you'd think they got enough feedback from people in MW2... guess not
Battlefield 3 Hardcore and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive No Call for Noobies for me!!!
hell yeah counter-strike and battlefield ftw :D
