Video roundup of videos being removed by Activision on YouTube.
Looks far too fast-paced. One In A Chamber looks more my style.
I kind of agree. I always found the sniper to be the most unrealistic bit about COD. No way anyone is sniping like that in real life. Anyone who has shot a rifle or been in the military knows what I'm talking about.
Was this guy playing bots?
well its not real life its a game...now i see what your saying but call of duty isn't a war simulator like ARMA or some thing. "Cant take the heat?..Then Stay Out Of The Rocket Propulsion Test Chamber!!!"
But it isn't a case of realism, it's a matter of game balance. If one player can use a class (sniper) to force the entire team opposing team to change their tactics or allocate a lot of people to continually taking that player out then the game is out of balance. When a sniper can dominate an entire map for the entire game then there is an issue. It isn't about realism but rather a matter of game balance and play mechanics. Look at MoH. The fact that EA has put up an official page to tell people how to deal with snipers is evidence that there is an issue with them in MoH as well. I expect some balance changes in the short term future.
And we'll get the last word on this since EA now admit's the sniping is out of balance. Here, Patrick Liu has just officially stated that the days of unskilled sniping are over. Prepare to be nerfed: http://twitter.com/#!/potta... "New tweaks for bullet deviation and nerfing snipers are definitely in the works."
It's not just the sniper guns that are all messed up. Game has ZERO recoil, you can hip fire and still be extremely accurate.
uhh obviously. It's call of duty if you havent noticed. Without this pace it wouldnt be cod.
i too used to hate quick scopers and in the end it was the only thing bringing me back. dont knock it until you try it, its atually quite fun once you get the hang of it.
Treyarch said quickscoping for sniper class has been removed in Black Ops.
Quickscoping hasn't been removed, sleight of hand pro has been removed. You can still quickscope, it just takes a lot more skill now. Go look up some CoD4 quickscope montages on youtube. It definitely still can be done, just not as easy as MW2 made it.
Most people fail to realize that CoD is an arcade-styled shooter. Nothing about it should be realistic.
True, socom4 save us.
It wasn't always like this. CoD4 made it like this. CoD1 and 2 were usually 1 hit kills on the guns. And didn't have a sprint button or stupid knife.
Exactly... On every article at any site there's always someone saying about how unrealistic is some element of the game...
the 2nd video IS sped up... then again...meh it looks like MW2: Unreal Tournament 3 with realistic gravity and modern war skins... not that I disliked Unreal Tournament, but at least that made sense...this...=|
where he sits in one spot for half the video really thats intense
the game is looking great. Im sorta hyped about it lol
No offence, but the game looks crap. I used to love COD until every new COD was basically the same as the one before. It felt as though I was spending £45 just to play on some new maps. Im going to give Black Ops a miss. Im liking MOH at the moment. Love sniping but I have to admit they are over powered and too easy to use.
wow no skill needed,auto aim ftw! lol
Like how you control the gun on the helicopter, the rc looks f*ckin pointless, overall same sh*t all over again
Im waiting for the moron to come here and say "stupid campers. Campers ruin the game!" What is it with people expecting snipers to run around and play? It isn't camping when you're using a single shot weapon. It's called............well, sniping. I do think that COD completely ruined sniping though. It's so ridiculously unrealistic. When you put the reticle on a guys chest and get a hit, and he keeps running, it's fucking retarted. What's the point of using a single shot, high velocity round, if one center mass shot doesn't take the target down? I'd understand a leg or arm shot, but C'mon. How many times do we hit a guy in the chest and he keeps running? It's kind of gay how you gotta hit him in the head for a 1 shot kill 80 percent of the time. Just my opinion though.
Ya it's silly complaining about snipers sniping. People gotta justify their weak play somehow. The essence of COD are the rat maze maps, there's always a path to doubleback on camper.
You can still quick scope...
These games make me puke. Its going to be really bad when Sledgehammer games starts to make COD games. Then you can expect a COD game every 6 months.
I was excited about the new gametypes though, but the gameplay still seems far too run and gun and pretend to have some fun not for me.
"but the gameplay still seems far too run and gun" What were you expecting from the a sequel to the most commercially successful ARCADE FPS of recent years?
game looks fun, but is it me or does that smg mp5 looks pretty overpowered? it also has 45 bullet clips.
Yeah, but I am thinking he might have an extended mag attachment or something on that SMG. Also, it looks a lot like the MP5 from CoD4 which was beast. The MP5 in MW2 blew chunks.
that snipping vid was awesome..that guy was good..now i want to play something...
It's MW2 all over again but this game looks like it will be (hopefully) more balanced but it looks incredibly fun, could amuse me for a week or two.
...but for the PC community, Black Ops is the closest we could have had for MW2 (Dedicated Server Support + Admin tools), so Black Ops is creating a lot of excitement on the PC front by that feature alone. Less than four weeks to go and we say goodbye to horrible P2P lag/host advantage! Getting back to topic: Gun sounds in the video are apparently way much better than WaW. They now sound more lethal. Anyone who has played WaW will understand what I'm trying to say.
You should try the Battle Rifles (Semi-Auto Sniper rifles) on MOH multiplayer. Now they sound lethal. MOH has some of the best SFX ive ever heard in a game.
It's suppose to look like MW2 and other COD games, it's a sequel in the series. The game looks fun. I want it to look like MW2, but be balanced without overpowered weapons and nonsense perks. Most of us die hard COD fans don't want them to change the game style completely. All I want is it to be balanced. As long as they do that, it should be a great time.
November NINE! Damn this game will have milions at the same time over XBL. Sadly Ps3 version wont even move 3 units.
Buddy I don't know who you are but it looks as though you have no intention of keeping your bubbles...
"Xbox Live will Crash November NINE! Damn this game will have milions at the same time over XBL. Sadly Ps3 version wont even move 3 units" 13 year old hairy green smelly troll.
its too easy to snipe in this game.
