    Rampart with high caliber 1 and 2 is amazing. Never cared for the ICR.

    I've found my best groove with the vapr with rapid fire and stock. Haven't unlocked the maddox yet though

    Add stock 2 as well. I really like it. When I go with the Vapr I’ve been adding an acoustic sensor. Really nice.

    Most people playing MP? I’m still playing blackout and with my lack of shooting skill try and find an AR and a silencer + a sensor dart and head towards where the circle is going to end up and try and pick people off as they come in or sit tight for the final 10-15. Still have no chance in a 1 v 2 fight even with high ground and element of surprise if the second guy gets a sight of me. Had a good teammate the other night in duos and just flanked people when he engaged it was like ohh, this is how it’s supposed to work.

    This game might have the worst sound of any major video game I've ever played. I love the game but the sound is just brutal

    I had to get the launcher camo for direct hits so I popped in hc. Had one game in first place with no primary, and got booted the next for inadvertent friendly fire :eatit:

    honestly the current call of duty paradigm is just poor game design all around. is it activision? is it treyarch? this game is just pure shit in terms of mechanics. at least on pc.

    i still like zombies though

    Why do you say that?

    What are we comparing it to?

    I think it’s pretty great especially compared to what’s been out in the past decade wrt CoD. Mechanically speaking it’s CoD but I enjoy the way they’ve found a balance between the boots on the ground and advanced movement system. Feels good.

    Cod does gunplay better than anyone
    Cod does physics better than anyone
    Except Destiny
    Both are activision properties, so its probably them

    However, both game suffer from horrible multiplayer design. Tiny ass map with shit spawns. Running head first into gunfire no matter what. Its too arcadey for me these days.

    Still streets ahead of CS

    I forgot that you guys are playing the version of the game that aims for you. Its total spray and pray on pc. Watching the "play of the game" just be total luck over and over gets tiring.

    Also saying "gunplay" over and over for years doesn't make it mean something. Comparing it to counter strike is a bad joke.

    I'll give an example of bad mechanics

    It appears to be faster to go from sprinting to looking down the sights than sprinting to hip firing, even without the grip perk.

    It means plenty. The guns feel like guns. Each one feels different than the next. Its smooth.

    Whereas cs feels closer to bioshock than a competitive mp game.

    But i can understand not being able to tell a diffference on pc. All guns in all games feel the same. Like nothing. You just point and click. You dobt have to feel the guns. You dont have to fight recoil. You just shoot.

    Youre arguing a game designed for console doesnt play as well on pc. Cool. No one disagrees.

    Yeah, the regular multiplayer on this COD is terrible to me. I feel like the spawns are so far out from the main part of the maps that a lot of times you have to sprint for like 5 seconds on spawn just to get back to the actual map. Then you get shot in the back by someone spawning where you just sprinted out from. Sweet. I love blackout though.

    got suckered into buying this to play with friends over the weekend. how have half my games resulted in the opponent having choppers nearly the entire game? killstreaks are so annoying, especially when you're a level 3.

    Did they nerf the spitfire or do I just suck with it now? Been using it after I prestiged and getting some good killstreaks but now it seems like I can barely drop someone with it face to face.

    The one in the cemetary? I landed right next to a helicopter at the start of the match. Choppered over there immediately and wasted tons of ammo and explosives to get him down and right after I did I tooled around for a second and then the border collapsed around me.

    I didn't actually open the chest because it took me too long. I've opened it at the one near the river and its not bad. I had the ray gun pop up after I killed a zombie in the mansion but I got killed by another player before I could grab it.

    Yeah killed it in squads twice. You get the normal chest, plus theres a loot explosion that comes out of the zombie. In total probably 3 or 4 level 3 armors and 6 or 7 decked out guns

    The new armor system in Blackout is atrocious. Game feels like some kind of mech shooter now since every hitmarker is an armor shot because armor almost never gets destroyed now. And everyone in the top 10 or so of every game has level 3 so that's fun. Mid-game engagements take forever as people duck behind stuff not just to heal now but to repair their armor to 100%. In one update they nerfed the strongest guns (SDM and Spitfire), made armor last longer and made armor repairable. The guns needed to be nerfed and I've wanted some kind of armor repair system since the game launched and I saw broken armor plates in people's death stashes but introducing a brand new item to achieve that, making armor pretty much indestructible and allowing it to be repaired to 100% is just overkill.

    Odin covered my thoughts exactly. There are still things to improve on, and I'm sure they'll adjust the armor repair thing even more, but I think it's a phenomenal first effort. Does the armor repair stuff repair armor the same % no matter the armor lvl? If so, I think that's your fix. Maybe something like 20% (lvl 1), 10% (lvl 2), and 5% (lvl 3). Not a fan of how much sway/recoil the SDM has now, so I hope that gets dialed back a tiny bit. Spitfire is definitely weaker, but I think it's for the better. A fully decked out one was steady and did solid damage from some ridiculous ranges. Elevators/bridge covering at hydro is a nice sign that they'll be actively tweaking the map, and not just adding/removing places. Other than that, the diving/parachuting is a whole lot smoother and there are a few other QoL improvements that keep me excited for the longevity of this mode.

    I like it too, but it feels like everybody in the top 20 has level 3 armor and it takes a million shots from my beloved spitfire to kill them now.

    They will adjust the armor thing more, Vonderhaar has already addressed some of the complaints, but I just think it was such a bad starting point. There's no way armor should be repairable to 100% and armor shouldn't be outlasting players at about a 99.9% rate.
