Jeff - support streaks are overpowered. You can set uav and counter uav then die as many times as possible while playing the objective and easily get 10-15 of them. Very annoying and part of the reason why MW3 is complete ****.

In BO2 you need map awareness and gun skill to succeed. If you currently don't have those and are playing online multiplayer, try combat training or playing against bots. Also, immediately jumping on the B flag on domination is foolish. What you want to do is capture your home flag, then flank around to surprise the enemies. Usually two-three easy kills then proceed to capture B.

I've always been an objective player in all CoD's and I don't have an issue in BO2, but that's because I took the time to play against bots for a little while before jumping into online. I also don't run high streaks because those take too long and you can die easily. I either run uav, hellstorm missile, and the precision strike; or uav, guardian, and sentry gun if I want to play defensively.

The uav is going to reveal enemy positions so I can get a few kills, then the other two are guaranteed to get me 5-15 kills. The sentry gun is surprisingly good, not easily destroyed and amazing if set in the correct area. Like in a house on standoff, people roam the streets so it kills them.

Also, am I the only that finds the hard wired perk useful? There is basically no ghost in this game because it is level 55 unlock so the only counter to UAV is the counter UAV. Hard wired + Orbital VSAT (Or UAV) = Overpowered.

- Hardwired is currently useless; it's dependent on the enemy team getting counter uav and emp, which I rarely see people use
- Prestige and permanently unlock ghost, now you have ghost forever
- Not overpowered at all, people can't see their map so what? You should rely on your map awareness, not your minimap. The blackbird also only lasts for a short time, and it's a high scorestreak

To make hardwired better I think they should make your items unhackable while using it. Like if you call in a care package while using hardwired, people can't use the black hat to hack it.

Assuming you're talking about MP, then there's hardpoint (king of the hill) and multi-team which is 3v3v3 on KH, hardpoint and TDM.

If you're going to hop on flags then you have to weigh up the risk/reward system you have. I run UAV, Hunter killer, Counter UAV.

I wish you could set killstreaks with a class. One of the things mw3 did right.

and permanently unlock ghost,

That's exactly what I'm gonna do with all this uav spam. I can't take it anymore. That's why there isn't much ghost, because no one has it yet.
Speaking of the black hat, that thing is awesome. Pair it with engineer and its even better. I took out a VOTL warship with that thing.

That and specialist. If I really need to change score streaks (Which I don't because I the ones I have are really low) usually I just try and squeeze it in between rounds.

Really? I always see people with counter UAV's. Every time I even get a UAV I always here that there's a counter UAV incoming. With hardwired my UAV still works and while they think I don't know where they are. I find that with a counter UAV up the enemy is more rushing and trying to flank. When I said overpowered I wasn't being serious by the way.

You can play search and destroy. I find that people don't get to UAVs if they don't get the plant/defuse. It also gives you an excess of xp.

UAV spam is annoying but would you rather your UAV be useless or there to always be a UAV against you? If I'm the UAV I find that it doesn't affect rushing as much as it does if you are conservative.

UAVs being OP? Ha! That was funny, oh wait you were being serious, how bazaar. The game is so much harder than I'm used to CoD being hat it's hard to get one for me, and when I do they're usually shot down pretty quickly. You mean none of you guys are having problems with them getting shot down?

Comparing hardwired with cold blooded and toughness, I just don't see why you would use it. Cold blooded keeps you away from several things that can see you, and toughness is less flinch when shot which means more chance of winning gunfights. Scavenger is also a good second tier perk, but you unlock that later on. They balanced it well; it replenishes but you only get packs from people you kill, and packs don't show up if they're killed by explosives, so that tunes down the claymore/betty camp abuse.

I notice that they get shot down pretty quickly, but at the same time almost everyone uses it. It's like the first scorestreak you get and it's very useful.

Something I find very annoying though is when teammates steal tags on kill confirmed. I get a few kills, teammate comes out of nowhere and snags the tags before I do, and he gets all the points (100) while I get a measly 25 (or 50, don't remember)...

But I'm more than halfway through the first prestige (think level 44 or so), should be able to get to second prestige tomorrow. I read once you reach prestige master (10th or 11th) it unlocks everything. Leveling looks easy if you're playing the objective, so I should be able to get there within 4 weeks. At most I only play 2-4 hours, more on the weekends. I've read that some people are already there... that takes some serious play time and dedication.

I find that the type 25 is extremely effective compared to the MTAR. I used to think it was the opposite because I thought it was like the type 95 and burst triggered it. Now that I know it is full auto I've been using it more efficiently. Also, even though the Vector is OP I can't seem to get any kills with it. So I am just going to stick with my MP7 I've already got a few attachments for it anyways.
