Why are these even in the game? The following perks have made the list either for their lack of usefulness or have made it because they ruin the already ruined game known as Modern Warfare 2.
commando pro #1 worst attachment: heartbeat sensor. worst killstreak: everything past pave low.
Agreed the killstreaks are absolutely over powered and very unnecessary. Why couldn't they stick to simple killstreaks that required skill? Why should someone get awarded free kills by an overpowering chopper gunner for example.
Yeah, they went way too far. The original MW was well balanced and was just fine the way it was. Now you have aircraft over the battlefield for the majority of every game.
I don't think either of you guys realize how simple and easy it is to take out air support. It takes teamwork, but that's precisely how it should work. I have a class dedicated to taking out air support. Also, if you don't like air support, play the Bare Bones mode. It takes away all killstreak rewards. Also while I don't think the Nuke or EMP are necessary the AC-130 and Chopper Gunner killstreaks I'm fine with. I get them regularly and it's not because I'm camping, but because I'm pretty decent at the game and usually have a good team (when I'm playing with my friends and not random people that is.) I agree that Commando, OMA, and Danger Close are cheap and shouldn't exist, but the killstreaks are rewards for doing good in the game. They are something that has to be earned (granted people online find ways to exploit them, but that's with everything and not just killstreaks,) and just because other people are better at the game then others, that's no reason to take that kinda stuff away (which is exactly the reason for the Bare Bones modes.) I'm much more concerned with Grenade Launchers, Knifing and Shotguns then killstreaks. Shotguns should be a primary weapon, knifing is far too focused in a 'shooter' and grenade launchers are cheap. However, that doesn't mean any of those things can't be countered, nor does it mean that the player still can't be good when not using them or them being used against the player.
Thank them for helping to ruin the Resistance franchise with trash Berserks. If you're good enough to get a streak, then continue it on your own.. not with the assistance of free-kill bonuses.
Scrambler is completely useless! Best perk is deep impact(stopping power)! It's fair and useful.
One Man Army perk isn't that bad. It's made so you can be, well, a one MAN army. If you're sniping, but want to be a Light Machine gun guy or an assault guy, you can. Just by switching classes. Don't freaking abuse it and use it with danger close and noobtube. That's the #1 problem in MW2. The COMMUNITY ABUSES THE GAME!!!!!
The EMP is too high on the list and the Stealth Bomber as well. If anything they need to change them around a little. The placement of some of the kill streaks make no sense.
The real question here is, why the hell are you still playing?
@Blackbeld Stopping power has no counter, it is not fair, nor is it useful. Especially when it makes 3 shot guns 2 shot kills.
The perks aren't the main problem ,its how you can combine them. You no longer need a lag switch to jump all over the map, when you got marathon and lightweight to do it for you. Also, I think the tactical spawn was the worst idea, didn't they think that could cause big problems with cheating, and to make it worst, they refuse to fix it
Isn't it a sad world we live on? Everyone uses Heartbeats in Search, fly across the map with cammando in demo, and much more. I say screw it, play one round, and if I get noob toobed, or ripped off by a heartbeat, I show em how its done their way.
Fight fire with fire, lol I do the same thing if they piss me off enough.
Me too if they use noob tube ill use it.
I can tube with the best of 'em, they quickly regret it when they get me - my last tubes were in wasteland - hit a guy that killed me from the cars/turret when I respawned back at point B.
To be honest, if you're going to talk about mw2 in terms of why the hell did they put that in the game, you could almost write up a 200 page essay of the amount of unbalanced crap things that people abuse. For me, mw2 could have easily been the greatest fps of all time but the balancing issues completely ruined it. I got noobtubed for the last time about two months ago and a mix of bc2, halo and RDR, haven't looked back since.
I sold my copy like a month after released. It was fun and I was camping like a pro getting nukes every game.But I was becoming a low life by the way I was playing the game and the developers refused to patch it so I finally stopped. Now I laugh at the millions of idiots that still play and purchased $15 DLCs, that are only worth $5-8. MW was a way better game, and all they needed to add was more weapons,accessories,and maps.
only thing good about modern warfare 2 is the way it looks 60 fps bright colors cinematic feel main things wrong with mw2 commando explosive radius scavenger - one man army low health - guns do to much damage everything stems from those problems it lost the some waht militaristic feel of modern warfare where i actually had time when i got shot to get behind cover where once you were out of ammo you used youre knife or picked up another person gun where knives only had the normal range of some one with a knife @bloody we are discussing about a game
I lost you at "guns do too much damage". If you think guns do too much damage in MW2 then try getting shot in OpFlash2, or make a wrong move in an R6 game.
m4a1 one of the the least amount of damage most accurate high fire rate guns in the game kills in 1/3 of a second if all bullets hit the m4a1 is not the best gun in the game the tar kills in less time if all bullets hit
I love how idiots trash on a game and how they sold it and blah blah. But they insist coming to articles about said game they was trashing. And actually i am glad its trash like you guys that have sold your game and do not play it anymore. Cause i would not like have to whiners and rage quitters on my team. I understand people suck at games and the refuse to see it, but they think they game should work how they see it, to fit how they want to play. And it doesn't work that way. If you can not adjust to how the game is being played then you need to go play with your barbie dolls. For everything in the game there is a counter.
When a knife is more lethal than 4 bullets to the chest, you just know something is broken.
I'd like to see anyone who get shot by M4A1(half clip) or get shot by SPAS 12 twice can still running towards the shooter and Knife him in real life.
what if the guy with the knife is falling from a height right above you and even though you have decorated the ceiling above with his entrails, he still manages to land a knife in your eye ball? Tell me you would survive that sh*t. But i get what your on about... i hate the fact that someone can knife you while dual-wielding another gun.... it defies all logic, and i hate lack of logic in all respects. How insanely fast do your reactions speeds need to be so that you can have enough time to lower 1 weapon pull out a knife and then stab someone with a knife, while still having enough time to put it away get your weapon back out and shoot the next bastard within 2 seconds??? im willing to test this out in real life if anyway is after it... infact im so confident i will be the guinea pig.
He's an assassin, durrrrr..woops wrong thread
dont forget how a throwing knife that hits youre pants can still kill you
Man people like you crack me up. The is a game it is not real life, it is solely for pleasure. And IW does not claim for it to be a real life experience. If you are comparing games to real life then you might want to take a break from games for a bit. I am sorry you guys suck at the game and have to complain cause you are getting owned. But enough with the constant crying. If you actually didn't care about MW2 you would not be in this article posting.
This game is far from realistic, it's a real arcadey shooter.. If you want to get a more realistic feel for this game, just play hardcore search and destroy or headquarters, the commando perk is useless you get caught every time. There isn't any realistic shooters on consoles with the exception of maybe rainbow six, that one is about as good as it gets.
We all know this is just a video game, but that doesn't mean you can't be accurate at detail of the game. If being accurate or realism is not important, what's the point of making a military shooter? Is it ok to have North Korea's falg on American solider's uniform instead of USA flag? or is it ok for people to pistol someone cross the whole map? why don't we just all playing si-fi shooter since we could jump down from 3 floor high and not dying or snipe someone in the midair etc... Like you said if we don't really care we wouldn't be here post our thought and share our experience. That's why we talk about it, You don't need act like you are better than rest of us and you never had any problem playing video game. I don't know what system you play on, but if you play on PS3 and you are that good I would like to play with you or against you.(My PSN FFXI101)
Commando pro is absolute garbage. Having someone jump the distance of an entire room while you are unloading on them only to get stuck with thier knife is pure BS. I mean in real life i'm sure it works like that... /s
Please, anyone who reads this and is asking questions about whether COD is "teh pwnage", buy Bad Company 2. It's the best online shooter you'll ever play. Nothing like this mess.....
Ya BFBC2 is definitely a lot better imo.
Did they fix the lag for the 360? I might pick it up again!
lol the MW2 fanboys disagreeing on everyone who says Bad Company 2 is better
Why is it so low in the weekly played games for Xbox 360? Its currently 9th on the played on Xbox Live.... So that means it not good :(
It's lower on the played list because camping babies have sub-1 K/D ratio, and they piss and moan, throw their controllers and go back to MW2 because it's got auto-aim that they can't live without instead of learning how to play a REAL shooter. BFBC:2 takes skill to become good at, and that's something the MW2 campers and glitchers just don't have.
The people that claim BC2 is better is the people that camp in MW2 and gets owned. So they trickle to BC2 where they can sit and use mortar over and over and snipe. And lol to campers, Bc2 has more campers in it than MW2. Have you not played TDM?
But BBC2 IS better... lol
last stand is useful its useful for pissing me off and stealing my kill and wasting my bullets to kill the other dude twice. most unfair perk ever.
why do you all bitch about killstreaks seriously i see people bitch about chopper gunners and ac130s all day long on xbl,just pick up a stinger and get rid of it instead of getting killed 10 times in a row if your sorryass team gets killed 25 times by the same guy you deserve to get nuked period.
What about in Terminal? The spawn system is so fucking broken, that you will keep getting spawned into that same little room, with NO way to even aim your stinger at the chopper gunner, yet they can aim it to shoot through the door/window easily as hell. Stingers aren't instant, it takes about 4 seconds to lock on and shoot, which is not enough time when some asshole is spamming that room with a danger close pro powered chopper gunner. That is reason #547 of why people bitch about killstreaks.
then stay in that room so you dont get shot at seriously if a real chopper gunner flies around my house and starts shooting at it i wouldn't go outside and say HEY LOOK AT ME! besides shopper gunners dont last more than 40 seconds so just chill inside, or better yet make a anti chopper gunner class with cold-blooded
My god you people make my F$#king sick with this crying sh1t. for everything in the game there is a counter. Tired of dying by chopper gunner, how about use the cold blooded perk? Tired of putting 20 bullets in to someones belly and chest cause you cant aim for the head? Go play hardcore. Tired of "Noobtubers"? Equip Blastshield and they have to hit you twice. Tired of Killstreaks? Then go play Barebones. The only people that cry about this stuff is people that actually suck at the game.
I dont see why I should NEED to counter it 5 bullets to the chest and I get knifed? No, not happening This idiot died 4 times in a row hes now invincible to my shotgun blast in the face? No I snipe somebody and only get an assist since they drop behind a desk in last stand? BS I plant 2 claymores on a single door and some dick with marathon and lightweight runs straight through both? No, thats retarded
A cold blooded class doesn't protect you in terminal if you KEEP FUCKING SPAWNING in the same room. I don't think you realize, that the blast radius of a chopper gunner with danger close pro takes up the whole room when it's at the right angle. There is NO escape, you just have to wait it out, being killed multiple times in the process, and by that time, some asshole already has ANOTHER chopper gunner out. And BloodyNapkin, that Barebones shit only recently came out, so it isn't really an option for those of us that have moved on and play OTHER GAMES. It should have been in there from the beginning, we shouldn't have had to wait. And no, I don't suck at the game, I have like 1,000-3,000 more kills than I do deaths. The game is broken, and they need to remove a couple of killstreaks and perks, or at the very f*cking least, make the majority of the maps bigger. Battlefield big, so some asshole doesn't have the access to the entire map to explode at will.
The worst perk is easily Commando - its actual description should be "Invincible to bullets whilst knifing", i mean how often do i shoot some guy in the face with a shotgun but get stabbed by him coz the bullets go straight thru him! Also stopping power is stupid since it effectively removes the need to look at the damage stats on the guns - SP basically makes them all the same. Also they should remove: tactical insertions - are these ever used properly?; harrier, pave low, chopper, ac130 and nuke - IMO the strongest killstreak should be something which cannot get 10+ kills eg the stealth plane. PS has anyone played the new "Barebones Pro" game type?; they disabled killstreaks so that people wouldnt boost; but unbelievably i see more people boosting in that game type than in regular FFA! i only play this game to hunt boosters so i had a good time pissing everyone off.
"Top Five Worst Modern Warfare Two Perks Ever" He says that like the perks are ever changing and the devs are taking some away and adding new ones. Maybe that's why I suck at MW2. I think the only one I've unlocked is Scrambler lol. That's probably because I'm always killed by fuckers using those and get fed up and turn it off.
I make my classes to counter the cheaters in this game. Realy thats how i come up with my classes i think about an annoying perk or killstreak and how i can counteract it, but some you just cant do anything about (nuke)
Commando pro ruined MW2 for me, hope it's not in Black Ops.
I dont know how to tell you this guys because the delusions ur having may cause an episode if the truth is heard but here goes .... everyone can use the perks you cant call it unfair or cheating or anything like that because you can use them too, It seems like noone likes anything they get killed by if you dont like perks play the barebones mode and have fun , there are plenty of ppl on it so you will get matches and leave the perk modes to the ppl with strategic thought and skills that know how to overcome certain players mmkay.
Yeah because teleporting knife attacks are strategic, thoughtful and require skill.... If you think it is, then you have some nerve to call anyone delusioned.
I couldn't get into BFBC2, thought it is a lot better then MW2. Can't wait till Reach comes out.
ALL OF THEM bare bones ftw.
Commando is not that bad of a perk. But the the thing is I hate that one army and scavenger reloads noobtubes.
"Commando is not that bad of a perk" oh reeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaallyyyyyyy yyyyyy? O_o
Why is this in the wii section? Ad revenue from site traffic?
...hints to me. I didn't understand you could utilize 'One Man Army' in that way... whatever game has already been sold. Got so freaking tired of it!
All these MW2 articles help me justify my petition against Activision, and my firm stance on not paying or buying it. i told you all not to buy it but you didn't listen!
to PSN if you still play COD4.
Commando is by far the worst that and last stand. THE WORST OF ALL IS PAIN KILLER THAT CRAP IS RETARTED DUMB CUZ IT TAKES 2 clips to kill the other player
as long in black ops theres no commando or danger close im happy as hell i dotn mind killstreaks since their are easy to takedown, shotguns i mind much but just sometimes should be a primary weapon.
F***KING HATE MARATHON LIGHTWEIGHT COMMANDO!!! AAARRRGGHHHHH!!!!!!
I still don't understand the commando hate... whenever I use marathon/lightweight/commando I get a WORSE KPD. So come on haters, explain how when I use something "overpowered" I get fewer kills and more deaths than when I don't. Now I understand danger close/one man army complaints because I've used that combo and it's very effective. Scrambler/last stand are both useless. But commando? Explain to me how something that makes me play worse is "overpowered".
You get a worst KD cause you can't play it as well, that's all... They move too fast so if you/they lag just a bit you'll miss most of your shots and if they get close enough so that you can hit, you're at knifing range... *Not saying you're a noob, just that you're not used to playing the class*
Yeah but this is exactly my point. I can't play so well with commando because I'm not as skilled with it. Meaning, when someone kills you with commando, it's not because it's a noob tactic and an unfair advantage, it's because they are skilled at using it. Next time when someone knifes you, think "wow that guy's skilled, how did he manage to get past all my teammates without getting shot?" not "damn another noob using a noob tactic."
These types of games should rely more on a players true skill. As far as I'm concerned Perks are nothing more than a handicap for those who don't possess such skills.
well call of duty over uses it and battlefield bad company the knifing is broken to the point where i dont go for knife kills unless it is a sniper and his back is turned and i have 3 to 4 trys at it. otherwise i just shoot him in the back of the head becuase you can stick the knife in there head/ back/ side and they are still alive. knifing is broken. but that makes for a better game though. guns trump knife
commando pro is just BS i pop a guy 3 times with an AA12 and he styll gets the knife kill like WTF? scrambler pro is exactly like the article says LOL.heartbeat sensor and thermal is for noobs.noobtubes are disgusting no scoping with a sniper is just somin....No words
I hate the game...
