    What is best and why? I really cant make my mind up.

    I think for the fun factor then specialist but for KDR then killstreaks.

    It probably has a lot to do with what gamemode you play.

    What do you think?

    I like calling in killstreaks so I choose that one mostly.

    Specialist is awesome though, getting all the perks make you feel like a boss.

    Map Dependant for me

    Village, Mission & Dome I'll use Pred / Heli / Reaper as that can cause a lot of damage

    Others mostly specialist

    Specialist is better for ranking up and makes you play more aggressively imo

    Not got an Assualt MOAB yet

    thought you didn't like playing MW3?

    but anyway, Specialist for Pros, Assault for (proper) Noobs, Support for Gays.

    I wouldnt say I don't like playing it, it's very fustrating, the maps are crap, it's no where near as good as mw2 but it's still addictive.

    Nothing wrong with Assault, you just need to try a bit harder to get enough kills ;):D

    Agree about Support (stealth bomber / emp :nono:)

    OUCH! :nono:

    You must admit my Adv UAV and Recon Drone helps team play.

    When I use assault or specialist (which I never use anyhow) I tend to huddle around the camp-fire a bit more.

    Assault isn't really a noob killstreak setup, the same cannot be said for support though.

    Support annoys me, no way should people be getting stealth bombers for constantly dying.

    I think Assault is Noob cos you're getting a bunch of kills that are not from you shooting people.
    Great for KD, but noob and lame... IMVHO :D

    Agree it is map dependant would add Interchange to the list already provided as air support can be pretty tasty on that map. Problem is I find air support gets shot down before it even gets a kill so I have diverted over to speciliast more now.

    Not sure I agree with the KDR comment my most kills with Assualt is 63 and if I recall I had 5/6 helis in that game (was running pred, airstrike, heli). Think my most with specilist is 61 both had around the same amount of deaths so nothing in it really. You have to remember with speciliast you are always in the game a number of kill streaks take you out of the game for periods even something simple like the pred means running off to find a safe spot and then calling it in and then averaging one kill with it, where as in that time you probably could have got two or three kills with your gun if you stayed in the action.

    I have no problem with the concept of support I think it's good to give people who can't put streaks together something that allows them to help the team out. I think it's important that we get new blood playing the game and going 3 and 25 over and over again can put people off at the start. What I do have a problem with is things like the stealth bomber being in there, should easily be a assualt kill streak. I hate getting tagged by a recon drone but love it when someone on my team has one. I think it wouldn't be hated as much if it wore off as opposed to being permenently on until you die.

    Skellz - You crack me up I remember when we first started doing clan challeneges on HC you were running around like a mad man trying to get your hands on the vests I was throwing down :D

    *Removes Skellz from FL...

    Find I hit the bridges too much on interchange so usually run Specialist

    Really like the idea of Support, but they should all be non-lethal, espcially when they are already benefiting from death streaks :facepalm:

    Specialist all the way for me, I'd be happy if they removed all the other killstreaks from the game, they make way too much noise. :)

    Big question is will Blops 2 continue with the specialist system?

    Given the new class set-up system they are brining in which from I can gather will allow you to select more than three perks I suspect possibly not.

    I really hope they do though.

    I hope they have specialist, but I doubt they will if the create a class system they are looking to use will be rolled out. Can't see it working.

    Depends on what game type you play and if you play in a party in all honesty. I play a lot of HC Dom and Support is the way to go IMO. It helps team mates as well.

    I'm hating care packages more and more in Assault. You have to stop playing and call them in. Such a faff on.

    Specialist is great when you go all pro. But I usually get killed 1 or 2 kills after getting it :(

    I hate support in HC S&D.

    Support and Specialist are two of the best things to come out of MW3. I play DOM probably 99% of the time and I run Recon Drone / Stealth Bomber / EMP, this is a really good set up to help the team. Also I have no chance of racking up kills for Assault Strike packages :blush:

    I recentty took some abuse from someone regarding using the support strike package, he said it was pathetic. I just thought…bad loser. He was actually on my team :eek:.…what a clown

    Don't select them then :)

    Waste of time selecting the SAM turret because knob team mates destroy them.

    I LOVE people that use assault, especially all the ones I shoot out the sky before they fire off a shot. Great for ranking up LMG's really ****ing quick at 200 a pop or 400 for double xp weekend or 800 if its with token + dxp and dont even get me started on Double XP Weekend, Token AND Clan XP.

    I swear I **** everyone off in a game especially the poor bastard that keeps calling in the same chopper that I shoot down before it gets on the map and fires a shot of.

    When I hear a Pave Low coming in I whip out the LMG because that takes it out quicker than 2 stingers.

    Also the escort airdrop goes down so easy when u got blind eye pro :devil:

    When im on a map your better of not using assault kill streaks cause you wont be getting any kills from them.

    Edit
    I think I got a video actually, ill see if I can trak it down.

    Edit 2
    Cant seem to find it :(

    Within 1m of joining a game with a pavelow and a chopper up I took both of them down and then shot down the further 5 choppers called in most by the same person and I was just sitting here grinning knowing that he must have really been getting annoyed.

    Edit 3
    Its still in my vault, nearly 5m long so unfortunately cannot youtube it :( But if you wanna take a look its under "THIS IS MY AIRSPACE"
