Nerf dem FMG's! If they get all these guns really properly balanced, it could be one of the best CoDs yet imo.
DARK WITNESS  +   1375d ago
between the bullet lag,shit maps and stupid spawn system, the fmgs are the last thing that needs addressing.

^ This

I cant stand the hit detection and lag. When you die as fast as you do in MW3, it really hurts when the netcoding feels so off.

OMG U 2!!! Lag is the only thing wrong with CoD. Thing is no other game lags that bad but they try to say its our Nat. When I play BF2,3, Socom, any other shooter they die point blank with a decent amout of bullets. But when I put a CoD disc in O.o Lagfest no naked chicz><
frostypants  +   1374d ago
Yeah, ever notice that when someone kills you, you usually only hear the one bullet that takes you out, but the preceding 30 rounds that were apparently fired were completely silent? And sometimes the round you DO hear sounds like a shotgun blast, even if it was fired from a silenced SMG? The netcode for this game is complete shart.

Also they have to address lag in order for MW3 to really shine.
ReservoirDog316  +   1375d ago
My biggest issue is the mic quality. Sounds like a bunch of robots talking. Hope they fix it.
FAGOL  +   1375d ago
Yh I think MW2 was the same. Blops was better when it came to mic quality.
brodychet  +   1374d ago
Issues to me in order of importance:
1. Bulletlag, lag in general.
2. Awful mic system
3. Overpowered FMGs haha.
4. Spawns. Not so bad, but it's clearly noticeable.
5. Most maps are really small. But i assume in the future there'll be bigger maps that come out.
farhad2k8  +   1375d ago
I haven't really come across these FMG's.. but then again I just play Hardcore.
I also never come across lag.. hmm.. must be one of the lucky few.
xstreetsweeperx  +   1375d ago
There are a lot more things wrong then just guns though.
Mister_V  +   1375d ago
Contradictory to what I said earlier, I definitely do have parts of me that still miss Black Ops. Especially when it comes to balance.
lorianguy  +   1375d ago
Haha THANK YOU!! Those FMG's are ridiculously overpowered.

But I can forgive them for the cool way you bring them out.
JeffGUNZ  +   1375d ago
haha was thinking the same thing bro.
PshycoNinja  +   1375d ago
Noooooo! Not my FMG's! Oh well, time to divize a new strategy.
xxmatrix1xx  +   1375d ago
I guess people haven't found out about the akimbo Skorpions lol their waaaaaay more cheap. You could basically snipe with them...THERES SO MUCH WRONG WITH THIS GAME
DARK WITNESS  +   1375d ago
snipe is an understatement. I took out a choppa with the skorpions. I mean spraying at it all the way up in the air and if felt like 90% of my bullets were hitting it bang on.
dcortz2027  +   1375d ago
I've already tried them, not even close to being cheap. It takes as much bullets as it takes any gun in this game to kill someone with the skorps. Now the akimbo FMG's, those things are cheap! One little spray with those things and I'm dead, bull sh*t!

FAGOL  +   1375d ago
No they're not. Their clip size are way too small. I mean you can maybe get a double once in a while but anyhting higher would be incredibly hard.

You have to be in close quarters to use them effectively.

There are quite a few things wrong with this game but akimbo scorpions are not.
DARK WITNESS  +   1374d ago
if you put the perk on that reduces hip fire, no joke, you really can take people out at quite a good distance quite accurately.
Cosmit  +   1374d ago
I tried them out yesterday because of what matrix stated. There not as good as the dual FMG. Like you said, the clip isn't big enough. And the FMGs are more accurate at longer ranges.
Cosmit  +   1375d ago
I, shamefully use them. Ha.
They are indeed freaking overpowered! I prefer they get nerfed.
BenCrazy424  +   1375d ago
Never heard of Mr. Blowing before...
Loadedklip  +   1375d ago
Awwww ... I love these things ... here we go again with nerfing anything that is good. Hopefully they don't make them useless like they did to the Akimbo 1887.
brodychet  +   1374d ago
^The comment of a lame player. Acquire skills man.
saoco  +   1375d ago
it seems like they tried to combine mw1 and mw2. but they fucked up. my main problem is that they almost completely got rid of the run and gun but they made the camping more common and the damn quick scope easier. there is way more of that going on now. ahh i had such high hopes.

And what tha funk is up with the damn lag? i have the fastest internet available in pensacola and damn near every kill cam i either dont hit them or my gun dont even come up. that didnt happen to me on BO, well rarely. any who im prestiege 4 and still have 2.06 kd.
Lex Luthor  +   1375d ago
Get rid of quickscoping.
FAGOL  +   1375d ago
Quickscoping + Lag = Ridiculous killcams
brodychet  +   1374d ago
iMpuTeD  +   1375d ago
fmgs are dang fun to use though im not gonna lie lol but ya thats good and qs does need to be more difficult they need to make it like mw.
Buzz7S  +   1375d ago
You all complain, yet you have no problem with paying $60 for a rehashed game, which you will do next year.
brettyd  +   1375d ago
blah blah blah...
Shackdaddy836  +   1375d ago
FMGs aren't the only secondary machine gun weapon that needs to be nerfed. I'm able to get a pretty good killstreak with just about all of them...
DARK WITNESS  +   1375d ago
the problem is the way the game plays now it's totally suited to people running and spraying, if they are going to nerf the fmgs to make things more balance why not also neft the snipers? I mean if they are going to allow people to run around quickscoping one shot kills, well that ruins the game just as much.

these guys have got their heads screwed on backwards. sort out the spawns, sort out the lag, get rid of quickscoping then maybe it will be a better game.
LakerGamerEnthusiast  +   1375d ago
all in good time hopefully man, if they do, then this could truly turn into something better than expected
tsn  +   1375d ago
Oh wow not bad Activision I would of thought we would have to pay for this patch.
LakerGamerEnthusiast  +   1375d ago
nice 2 hear of the FMG's getting nerfed, everytime im online and get killed by them in search i get pissed especially when i have rapid fire and they dont, they always say shit that all it is is skill and im a noob... Good thing on your part IW...
flyinrhyno  +   1375d ago
I love that they actually follow up on cheaters hopefully theyll ban this guy for glitchin under outpost JOSHY427 on psn he is a cheater
hotskys  +   1375d ago
Honestly, does infinity ward not know that the Type 95 is Overpowered? Fix that shit!
FAGOL  +   1375d ago
It's not. In close quarters it gets demolished by any other full auto or shotty.

I don't use it because it's a pretty boring gun to use but I can usually destroy anyone using it.
hotskys  +   1375d ago
Lol @ you for thinking it's not OP.
"In close quarters" lol most kids who use it camp with it, but it can still own in close quarters.

The gun-

*No recoil
*extremely powerful
*fires fast
*can have rapid fire

It's a bitch gun. I'm actually surprised you don't use it, because everyone who defends it, uses it.
SNEEKZ0NER  +   1375d ago
I agree too many people use this gun because it's so over powered they really should patch this gun not even the m16 kills someone with one burst.
FAGOL  +   1375d ago
One big balance issue that will certainly arise soon is the use of Recon Pro perk. It allows flashes/grenades/concussion grenades and bullets to mark enemies on the map for 10 seconds. Which is ridiculous in Search and Destroy.

The fact that it shows which way you're facing with no time delay and that your whole team can benefit from it is way too overpowered. There is no counter to this perk.
ambientFLIER  +   1375d ago
It would be also great if they patched quick-scoping. Really annoying when people run around on tight maps and get easy kills. I don't want to go down to their level and use it myself...
SNEEKZ0NER  +   1375d ago
They should fix scavenger pro to be something usefull what's the point of scavenger pro if you can't even get extra stuns or flash bangs? Scavenger and scavenger pro are the same thing. Also make the Type 95 take two bursts to kill someone one burst is ridiculous.
KontryBoy706  +   1374d ago
They would rather nerf the FMG9 than fix their broken spawn system, the commando still somehow being in the game, the snipers which are better than the SMGs up close and the wack maps with too many buildings to camp in making the kill streaks pointless (oh wait they have a fix for that it's call buy the new dlc for $15 with old maps). I'm trading this in and buying skyrim quick.
Pentumsmart  +   1374d ago
There hasn't been a signle COD game yet that didn't suffer from lagg. It will never be fixed.
WetN00dle69  +   1374d ago
I love using the Dual FMG's.
And for them to nerf them is blasphemy!
DAMN YOU!!!!!!!
Guess to many crybabies complained!
Guess they got tired of getting shot to high hell out of their camping spots.
