    I do much better at Hardcore, everyone is more careful and it's not so run n gun. Also are the challenges broken? Like today my challenge was 50 kills with a weapon with 3 attachments 75 shotgun kills and they are counting, anyone else have this problem?

    Usually have to log out and log back in.

    I refused to play HC until they fix the footstep sounds. Camping is so bad because of them.

    This is true about the footsteps I just take it slow and try to hold down a certain area, like an entire building or I will try and cover a running lane that leads multiple places. I call it zone camping.

    I am just not enjoying this game. There’s too many issues to count at this point. The footsteps, the 725, the matchmaking, the claymore blast radius, etc.
    Every day I try it again thinking it’s just a learning curve thing but it’s obvious there are some serious flaws in this game that need to be remedied quickly for it to succeed. Back to BO4 for me until they fix all this crap.

    It’s fun, but also rage inducing at times. The footsteps being loud bothers me much less than the characters yelling out that there is an enemy and that enemy being able to hear them yelling.

    So some twitch streamers have figured out that there is some glitch in the game that at times will cause players to see opponents before they can see them. So if you feel you’ve been getting shot by people you can’t even see that’s why.

    COD is not what it used be when some of us started playing. It's almost pure chaos, there are so many ways guys come at you or the objective it's hard to get on a roll game in and game out. I think it all started way back when they introduced the Nuke and guys were just camping for the nuke and they wanted to make sure that didn't happen again. This is why I play hardcore, no mini maps unless you earn a UAV or personal radar. It's not just random 16 year olds running around jumping up and down with a 725.

    I want them to fix the 725, footsteps, climbing onto objects glitch, and add some more maps, it seems that I'm only playing 4 maps.

    The maps are so bad. Most of the issues with the game (725, claymores, mini-map red dot, SBMM, footsteps, I am sure I am missing more) can be addressed but if they don't add new maps, the game will be dead very soon. The game has a lot of positives but I am not sure I can remember a COD coming out this broke.

    I have no idea what this 725 is that everyone is complaining about. Big fan of switching it up and going Gunfight mode

    The model 725 shotgun. It’s the double barrel. It’s pretty much a one tap with crazy range for a shotgun. Gun game is fun.

    Totally agree, I would play way more i they would just add 2-3 more maps. In the modes I play, it's always piccadilly sq, Ramaza, Gun Runner, and the one with the trains down the one side of the map. They are all CQB maps that are just pure chaos most of the time. They need some maps that spread out the action and punish the run and gunners and are in long rang players favor. I don't mind taking a beating in the small maps if I know we are going to a long range map where I excel.

    Also I just noticed this the other day, is it platform cross play all the time? That would make sense on how some of the shots these guys pull off work.

    Yes to the last question. The lobby should have the emblem in their player bar of what console or whatever they’re using. And if you use KB/M and enable all types then it shows what type controller as well.

    Although the controller icon just shows what type their console thinks they’re using. Any KB/M USB adapter that isn’t native (IIRC COD supports the native XB/PS KB/M) will bypass and show up as using a controller

    I've heard that connections are a really big advantage in this one. If you have low latency, you'll almost always get the first shot/appear to get a kill around a corner.

    The game has an angle problem. A couple youtubers have made videos on it, basically one player thinks he is behind cover but in actuality half of his body is poking out from the other view.

    ETA I am sure there is also a connection issue given how many things are currently wrong.

    I love that they "nerfed" the 725 only to realize it was still OP and now have nerfed it again 3 days later... the devs for this one are clueless. These are very simple fixes.

    is there a FPS in the past 5 years that hasn’t had incessant bitching from armchair developers on the internet about a game not being “fixed” the their liking?

    I’m 15 hours into online play and wouldn’t even know 725s were OP if I hadn’t checked this thread. I’m no professional but at 34 rank and 1.15 ratio it’s not a case of noob ignorance either.

    I like the game and think it could be great. There is nothing wrong with pointing out things that need to be fixed.

    If you don't think the 725 is (was) a problem then we will never agree about anything with this game.

    My view on the 725 is that it’s understandable to make it semi op. Otherwise there is about no reason to use a shotgun, let alone a shotgun that needs reloaded after 2 shots.

    My theory on balance is if 99% of the base is using 1-2 specific things, those are probably OP. Things are a META for a reason, because they're the best in the game during that time. Sure you can "adapt" but that also gives developers a pass for not QA well enough. The shotgun was mega OP, as well as claymores.

    I really like the campaign. I want to finish it so I can try the co-op stuff.

    If as many people are running around with 725s as it’s made to sound like ITT then that META has a losing record against my tried and true old reliable M4.

    Claymores do make me want to break shit though.

    got a party of 6 up last night and ran some Search and Destroy. Took me back to the CounterStrike days.

    The problem with the 725 wasnt that it was a one shot kill it was that it was one shot kill from halfway across the map. I remember I picked one up one time and nailed some dude way far away and he died. I thought I picked up a marksmen rifle but then realized it was a shotty

    Shotguns are fun and they usually start out a little OP but the community backlash always fucking destroys them.

    Co-op is a disaster right now. I don’t play the wave survival mode (though reviews are that’s a disaster too) but the spec ops missions are borderline impossible. Among other things, enemies spawn 360 degrees around you, there are hundreds of them, they don’t miss and they get progressively harder to kill to the point of running out of ammo, which happens basically every time if you don’t die first. Also, Juggenauts take entire mini gun clips and don’t die. That’s before discussing the respawn system that’s broken and the killstreak/power ups that are broken.

    I am assuming they will patch it all at a later date and eventually it will become a fun game mode, but right now, unless you are playing with 3 other people who have mics and will work together, it’s an exercise in futility.

    Beat the first spec ops mission this week. Starting to understand it better. The challenge is getting more fun if you are playing with a group who wants to play it as a team. Have to be prepared to camp on rooftops so that when teammates die you are in a safe position to give them time to respawn.

    have to use overkill/two primaries, an AR and a LMG. Have to stay tight as a team in order to revive unless one player can get to a protected area of the map to stay alive so when players get downed they can respawn.
