Discussion in 'Call of Duty (COD) PS3' started by Det, Apr 3, 2012.
Thanks to Uzer for providing this info on our site!
sounds promising but what's the source? some of it seems suspect.
If you google "Black Ops 2 leaked" there are any number of sources. But I personally couldn't find the original source, just a bunch of gaming sites and news reporting it.
I wish they had put this one in:
Knifing is now a 2 button action, 1 to arm and 1 to attack. The arming process is not instant and has a very slight delay therefore removing 'panic knifing'.
Shouldn't it be Black Ops info leaked. I started to think people would be playing the game in the next 24hrs.
What about the [-]lag[/-] being able to shooting round corners..surely they left that out, as that's been a staple of most COD games for years.
I hate to pull the common sense card out... but...
Anyways, I'm stoked about the info. Sounds as if they are attempting to fix all the BS yet again and I thought BO was fairly balanced as it was. They are adding Support KS and Specialist so pulling the best bits from MW3 and scrapping the rest. Bon[-]er[/-]us! And their SPM and after game stats were far superior to IW's stat trackers. On top of their map design in BO was a huge step up from MW3 I have high hopes for BO2 and would consider Elite since their map packs for BO were surprisingly really good.
Will never happen as long as tactical layout is around. Would make it so no one would pick the regular layout.
If you're not a panic knifer you should seriously consider swapping to tactical layout yourself.
Knifes should be a 3 swipe kill except from behind.
Players in the same 3 square meters of space for longer than 10 seconds are suicided. Even just a playlist called "On the move. No camping allowed".
Then again if you implemented that no one would play LMAO
Although I agree with your post in the moaning thread, I completely disagree with what you class as camping. In BF3 people regularly 'camp' in buildings but they are defending flags if people do similar in COD do you class this as camping?
It irritates me when people incorrectly call 'camping', I honestly haven't seen much camping in MW3 and I've put in some decent hours on it. Generally it's the poorer players who call out camping when it's not - fact
Give it another couple months and he will switch back to bitching about BF instead of MW3.
The thing with Bf is that if someone is camping a flag in a building your squad can spawn on you and you can blow up the building and the camper is gone. There's no unreachable place. You and your team want to rush a flag? Chance are you'll easily capture the flag - especially with the enemy camping in a building. They'll also not camp at a flag they have captured for long as the action will be elsewhere a great distance away. In bf you don't capture a flag by yourself. So that camper knows if he's sat at a flag he owns. Two things will happen A) He's not getting kills as they own that territory and the action is no where near him. And B) A squad or two is about to run in and dominate that area and he's a dead man without question. He kills someone. That person gets revived and he's dead or the person he killed has revealed his position and he spawns nearby on a squad mate and they all blow him up.
Camping in cod is an entirely different ballgame. It's a tactic that is rewarded all game long. And often the camping isn't even near a flag. It's some other corner gettin people on their way to the objectives. The camping person doesn't care about objectives. He cares about his KDR and lovely kill streaks rewarding him for ignoring objectives and catching actual objective players doing the right thing.
for that insight into BF3 Soundburst.
So .. if this "info" is true, they have ensured that you have to prestige to enable full use of perks and turned the Specialist package (one of the best things about MW3 in my view, a big help to less than stellar players like me) into what is basically a killstreak.
Nothing really new there, they are just tinkering with a tired old formula that is years old. I wont be buying it. Ten quid says they even rehash the MW3 titles and emblems. In a years time we will be back here reading all the bleats from the sheep who lined up to buy it, and probably Elite 2.0 as well, because they thought that this time it would be different.
COD is dead, you cant polish a turd.
Then do me a favor. Scroll up to the very top of the browser on AVF. Click on AVForums dropdown, this Forum List. Tons of other forums you can peruse and post at your leisure.
This thread is for the hype train. Save the moaning for when the game comes out.
The only differences between MW3 and Black Ops 2 specialist is you don't get EVERY perk at 8 kills. You only get 10. But you earn them faster. MW3 at 4th kill you only have 2 extra perks, Blops2 you will have 3 extra perks. On your 6th kill on MW3 you have 3 extra perks, while on Black Ops 2 you will have 6 extra perks.
So really it helps the less then stellar players because you open up more perks faster. If you consistantly run specialist and consistantly go on 8+ killstreaks then yes...this package would cheat you a few perks. But for everyone else it benefits you, and realistically gives them a better chance of going on a longer killstreak because of it.
2 things to note.
The prestige rank thingy sounds daft but will have to wait and see on that.
And this new perk system sounds interesting but kinda daft as well.
I like the branching out of perks but then only being able to select one branch and if you want to change it you have to prestige.
Sounds like alot of trouble.
Other than that some nice things mentioned there that I hope hold true.
Wont believe anything until its all confirmed. We got a load of leaked info about all the previous cod games and most of it was tosh.
I just wish they would sort out the lag(shooting round corners, etc), and add some sort of destruction to maps, with buildings, etc.
Think I'm too looking forward to the cqc on BF3, with Ziba Tower, that just looks amazing.
Buildings don't withstand gunfights, and COD for me, has started to go stale with the low res textures/zero destruction thing, no matter what you throw at them.
I think that part is dumb about prestiging. I think they should allow you to unlock both features and choose which version of it you use on whichever class. So if you want faster gun swap on one class then select that, if you want faster equipment use on another then select that.
I bet this is a prelim list and hoping some will be tweaked with that being one of them (but it may also be a ploy to get people to prestige). But tbh this entire list sounds legit.
The only one I'm really wary of is the specialist unlocks. It's more incentive to use that than any other atm. 6 perks after 6 kills for a total of 9 perks? Too easy, especially if you can pick which ones. For instance whenever I got specialist bonus I could have easily done without extreme conditioning, scavenger, overkill, sitrep, blah blah blah so it will still make you unstoppable at 6 kills versus the 8 in MW3.
Would be really cool if you could destroy building walls and suss out campers that way. But BF3 does it better. Shame they don't have smaller maps designed just for gun on gun though. Like a BF/CoD blend. I prefer the weighty feel of the player in BF over CoD but prefer some of the other more fluid mechanics of CoD over BF. Like when you kill someone in BF it's not as rewarding because of how things pop up and the hitmarkers aren't as evident.
off topic but there is a "close quarters" map pack coming out as mentioned above. Funny thing is though, most of the people posting about it are talking about the fact they think it will be rubbish and how unwelcome it is!!! Personally don't think it will work though, if nothing else I think the visuals will be far too cluttered......
Anyhows, as long as they keep the same map design thinking for blops 2 I will be there. In fact, pretty much any cod apart from mw3! Terrible inconsistency with game play but real killer for me is just getting bored with map dynamics so pleased with any rumours that maps will be more like blops
An attachment that lets you see through walls?
A killstreak. And the motion sensor pretty much does the same thing.
im sad if they remove the underbarrel flamethrower... was a fun troll
Yah, but the framerate drop was horrendous when using that and napalms going off everywhere.
Flamethrower mmm I got a 4 man multikil and straight after a 5th kill which equals contract done.
Love the masterkey too
They were fun contracts
It's a stupid addition really.
Won't be buying this COD anyway, since it's a Treyarch game.
It's another way to suss out campers. I think it's decent, though I'd never use it on a regular basis.
Treyarch puts out better work then the current COD offerings from Infinity Ward and that merry band of 2nd class developers left over when the originals took off.
