Another webcaster on justin.tv has gotten hold to a early copy of Modern Warfare 2 and he decided to show off some split screen mutliplayer
thats hard to believe cause a man like me, Mr T wants cold blooded evidence Nuke? drop me outta an airplane and I'll show em
OH MAHH GAWD!!
That headline's quite the spoiler mine. Anyway, in my 2 years of playing COD4, with my 4.09 K/D ratio, I never reached above a 20 Killstreak, so if some guy on the other team was able to survive till he got his 25th kill, then dude, you and your team SHOULD get nuked.
This will urge the SNIPERS and CAMPERS to play the game like it was MEANT to be played. Lots a people ill try ta get this. Offering incentives for people to be more agressive online, genius move by IW!! "Anyway, in my 2 years of playing COD4, with my 4.09 K/D ratio, I never reached above a 20 Killstreak, so if some guy on the other team was able to survive till he got his 25th kill, then dude, you and your team SHOULD get nuked." My thoughts exactly. Anyone who doesn't like it should quit whining and not buy the game. Very simple.
No it won't. It will urge them to snipe and camp more, since that is the way to avoid dying. If you snipe for the whole match and peek out only occasionally, or you camp the whole match and kill people occasionally (but they never get you because you're not out in the open), it may be possible to rack up 25 kills in a row. In any online game, being more aggressive = more deaths = hard to keep a long killstreak. Sniping and being cautious = fewer deaths = long killstreaks.
You're so right... that's why its a pass for me! With all these perks that get you easy kills, it's way too much of an easy game to play. I'll rent it to play the single player story, then I'll give it back. I'm more interested in BFBC2, it's looks like you have some shooting skill and earn your kills in that game.
@Winter. I got a 25kill streak once when I was playing COD4. It was on broadcast (Free for all) and I started sniping in the building across the way, then I headed in the door to the right to continue my merking session. Not gonna lie my hands started sweating after kill 19. At that point in my head I was thinking of pulling off the 25 and 0 on Free for all. It's hard to do in Free for all especially with all the campers.
Reminds me of the Cruiser firing on the ground in that one Flash and Thunder pack map for Killzone 2.
if this is unavoidable and just kills everyone then ends the game....well thats super [email protected] I might just stick to WaW after all...
Dude the main problem with COD4 was that you couldn't snipe on there. You were forced to run around wildly shooting anything you saw. That's annoying and repetitive so I'm not going to spend 1,000's of hours trying to get the highlest rank of prestige while doing the same boring run and gun style. I like bigger/open maps because it's more realistic then dropping a bunch of people in a little box and making them run into each other. That takes no skill other than pure aim. When you have more than 1 playing style you have to be truly cautious and observant which makes an all around balanced soldier.
Didn't Half life had the same nuke thing? Crossfire level.
I don't see how you can say that it's easy to play - when it's one team against another so it's fair and therefore the difficulty depends on who you're playing with. Any game where it's fair on both sides can't be easy or hard, because if you find it easy, that means you should be playing with more skillful players.
You had a 4.0 kdr? and never got above a 20 kill streak? Sad.
It's hard to get 25. I played Resistance 1 for months and only managed to get 20 kills twice.
should of done it like Killzone 2 where there's a big explosion and if you not covered by a building you die but whatever floats the boat at IW
yep, it was in HL1 Deathmatch,i love that map. All i can say is "VALVE DID IT." SUCK IT IW.
Was that 30 second intro and 25 second ending really necessary for 35 seconds of actual footage? Also, I hope these long kill streaks don't motivate people to camp so they can get high kill streaks. I don't want to play a match where everybody's camping in some building or an alley waiting for someone to pop out.
Couldnt agree with you more, these super long intros are useless and annoying...Just pop the logo if you want then move on and show us the dang clip...
@ 1.14 They ripped that idea from half life 1
That's a bit overkill isn't it?
If you have any sort of skill, you play Search & Destroy. When you only have one life to live is when the knowledge and tactics come into play.
25 kill streaks are more common than your making them out to be. All the people i know in RL that play COD4 have 20+ kill streaks and a lot of them have 25+. I've had two 31 killstreaks on different accounts for the PS3 and a 30 killstreak when i had my 360 (subsequently traded in). But anyway back to the nuke. Depends what it does. 25 Killstreaks are very hard to get and deserve something. If the nuke just kills everyone on the other team then i suppose that might work might not. If its anything more overpowered than that, it'll just kill the game.
@1.20 - If by "knowledge and tactics" you mean "camping", then yes, it certainly does come into play in single-death games.
Now that COD has supply drops, I can see the 25+ kill streak coming into play even more. The biggest problem I had with COD was the lack of earning more ammo, especially when you had a nice streak going. Plus, who knows how good the Predator and C-130 will allow players to get their bonus kills. If people are able to rack up the kills with those two, we will all have to look out.
@1.22 - "If by "knowledge and tactics" you mean "camping", then yes, it certainly does come into play in single-death games." Hey it's nobody's problem if you don't know how to take out newbies that camp. It's not like Search and Destroy is in 3rd person or you have some sort of a cover system. Everyone sees what's in front of them. You're even given things like UAV - and not too many people wear jammers in S&D.
it gets u a nuka cola
Well that's like... your opinion man. I love that movie
Yes it has Tactical Nukes at 25 kill streak. It ends the game there and then!!!!! It also takes the pi55 out of Trey Arch with the Sniper Fi level, lame. A video of the Tactical Nuke and a couple of screenies here http://www.vgwatchdog.com/?...
How does it take the piss out of Treyarch?
Hows it gonna end the game there and then? For example if you get this in team deathmatch, then you will respawn wont you? But in search nd destory i can see the game being over, but no1 really gonna get 25 kill streak in S&D are they now?
It says defeat.. it seems the site switched off today lol read it here instead http://www.playstationwiki....
after clocking around 12 days (250 hours) in MP. i don't think that's going to happen again.
I got a 34 kill streak sniping once.
There's no trophies or achievements in multiplayer.
theres no multiplayer trophys
the highest i got was something in the 40's (i think 42) but now a days i can occasionally get 15-25 kill streaks on a regular basis (15's by actually playing, 25's by camping or spawn killing) this will become a huge sniping and camping game now and i can see many ppl getting pissed off cause of it im prolly planning on getting the game, but not immediately at release, im going to wait for either a price drop or after i get bored of the other games im planning on playing
Wouldn't the nuke also take out YOUR own team as well? Also, I think the whole idea of killstreaks is retarded. Reward the people who are already awesome, with things that will make them even more awesome. I know they have deathstreaks, but I don't see how any deathstreak can compete with a freakin' nuke.
"Also, I think the whole idea of killstreaks is retarded. Reward the people who are already awesome, with things that will make them even more awesome." exactly how i feel tbh it's why at the end of a tdm on cod you usually get 1 or 2 v poor scores, mostly average scores and then ridiculous k/d's by the first person to get a bit of a streak going cus they just keep being rewarded lol it's like in cod4 if some1 is good enough to get 7 kills without dying then they don't really need an ai controlled chopper to get the kills for them ffs!
Why the hell would you get rewarded for sucking? Although a game-ending all-killing nuke is a bit much, kill streaks are a great idea
The killstreaks makes the game even more enjoyable. It teachers players to not just run and gun because that causes your team to lose. You have to be smart about it. I always hated playing on teams with players that did not want to work as a team. They would do whatever they wanted just running out and getting whacked.
A 25 kill streak ends the game? That's retarded, I've gotten plenty of 30+ kill streaks in COD4 and the last thing I want is for the game to end there... Well, I guess there's still the option of using it or not, but still...
I hope it's not just insta-kill, let them have to set it up like a ghost in starcraft. They have to stand still while deploying the nuke and it takes 30 seconds to activate.
one word for this....stupid
this is quite stupid ...i agree ..i guess they wanted to "improve " or to "change" the multiplayer ... whatever that was ...but it failed ...now it's confirmed you won't see me in multiplayer ... ( that is if i ever buy the game )
ok so thats like ridiclous and should probably be illegal lol
PC hackers = 100000000000000000 nukes omg
You get 25 kills + more with nuke 15 kills :D
look's cool also last stand and ...Martyrdom are back
Anyone else picking up on the "Sniper Fi" level? I commented about in the Game Zone but its lost amongst others. Semper Fi in COD [email protected] Sniper Fi in COD MW2 A deliberate snipe at Treyarch?
Semper Fi is short for Semper fidelis, which is Latin for "Always Faithful". It is the motto of the U.S Marine Corps. So I don't think Infinity Ward meant it as a jab to CoD:WaW.
See what you did there with the "snipe" bit ;)
Shouldn't be set at 25 killstreak. That's extremely hard to get.
Not that hard, actually. I got a 27 kill streak running around on Shipment with an auto-shotgun.
That's the point... Btw, video has been removed :(
That's kind of the point.
Justin.tv is nothing but pirates racing to show off games and be bragtards about it. They need to police their own site.
but its not impossible if your not a noob. In COD4 I got up to about a 23 kill streak in Old-School and a 19 kill streak once in KZ2. This is a cool, yet somewhat novel addition to COD, but this for sure is going to motivate some intensive camping in the game, and OHHHH I F'n Hate Campers!!! Especially the people, whom I refer to as the "Stupid little emo kids" sitting in a corner next to a door, staring at the wall looking all sad, and waiting to pop you in the back as you enter a room. With too many campers, there will only be chaos (and chaos I mean all my neighbors hearing perpetual F bombs coming from my house.)
its not impossible but it just happens, i have gotten 25 kill streaks at least 6 or 7 times. But this kill streak seems stupid. It will be a rare occurrence, and i don't see why the game needs to end because of this. 25 is too many and this is too powerful, this seems as stupid an idea as death streaks.
i got a 50 + kill streak on COD4 no lies here, thier was many noobs
I think it's cool that you get awarded the nuke thing when you achieve 25 uninterrupted kills, but what's the point? I mean really... you call the nuke, and your team magically wins while killing everyone, including teammates, and not to forget, it destroys whatever it was you WERE trying to prtect like in Search and Destroy... It's utterly pointless and will probably be the platinum trophy for us on the PS3, just watch.
oh really u know there are NO multiplayer TROPHIES and a search and destroy is 6v6
I know Search and Destroy is 6v6, I was using it as an example but since you don't like that one how about Sabotage or Domination? Better now?... Anyways I'm glad if there are no multiplayer trophies. This nuke thing is useless and I know that I'll just keep playing the same way I always play, altering between careful and agressive playing at the best time for each.
XD Brilliant If you get 25 kills in a game everyones going to hate you. Its just 100% insta kill for everyone. Just imagine your 3 kills from getting your own nuke sniping, then you see a bright light at a distance... "****!!!"
wrong story reply
Wait, so which stupid soldier in their right mind would order in a nuke within a couple hundred metres of himself and his team? And which dumb commander would give the go-ahead for that? It just makes no sense
This video will be dead soon, had it on my youtube channel then "Activision" got rid of it. >.> gayness...
ok this is getting stupid
25 kills is hard to do with out cheating. So as long as they stay on top of the glitchers I'm cool with it.
that there was a kill streak doubler perk so if that is in there than its not so hard getting that nuke.And i dont think it will end the game we will just have to wait and see.
Reason not to buy this game.
