Holy crap whats the range on those shotguns cause you were pulling some pretty far away kills with it? Nice videos btw

 

So this explains why I haven't seen you on Halo in awhile, been playing the COD. Got a friend trying to talk me into buying this and watching those vids makes me miss my old COD days (not that much mind you, I never got into multiplayer for BO1 and MW2 turned me away from multiplayer to begin with).

With the long barrel attachment, I'd say its on par with MW's SPAS-12, maybe a little more, but there is no slight of hand, and the fast mag attachment doesn't speed up your pump action so if you run into more than 1 person, you might take them both, 3 you'll die. It's the most handy camper killer in the game.

The game has its issues, like the 1 sniper rifle that you can shoot as fast as a m4 with zero recoil, but it's worth red boxing Strider. Black Ops 1 was pretty good, MW3 was so bad, I wouldn't be playing this game if I didn't get it as a gift. It seems Treyarch makes a better COD now. I'm having a bit of fun. I rarely get kill streaks but I still pull off matches like 23-9, 15-3, etc. in fact there are hardly ever any score streaks spamming the map, unless you play demolition. They set the lowest to the equivalent of 4 kills, and you only get 25 points for score streak kills, so it's really difficult if not impossible for one to lead to another without more kills.

Good kills! I'll definitely get that long barrel attachment. Your shotgun was getting huge distance kills. That FAL looks like it takes ppl down quick. BTW, I noticed you do a lot of crouching while most ppl just stand there getting shot. Are you using a different button setup from the default? I need to see if I can change mine on the ps3. Pushing down on the right analog stick does a melee attack, but on bf3 its for crouching and going prone. I've died so many times on bf3 crouching repeatedly at some guy while he shoots me in the face. -_-;

 

On the ps3 the crouch is the circle button which means you have to stop aiming to hit the damn crouch with your right thumb which screws up any real dodging in the game. So most ppl all just strafe left and right to dodge.

 

Most of the rounds I've played have been decent and mostly balanced, but I've come across a handful of matches where ppl on the opposite team must have been boosting score streaks by having someone on my team constantly spawning a split screen user for them to kill repeatedly. I never watched those matches to confirm my suspicions, but it must have been happening because those matches go ridiculously one sided. Those matches would be so bad that when I spawn I would get instant killed by a lightening strike that was done by the same guy that just killed me moments before by a hellstorm missle.

 

I looked into a bit and even found message boards dedicated to people that want to request boosting partners to meet in game for multiple rounds of bullshitty one sided dominance.

 

Thankfully I've only come across a few rounds like that so far and I usually quit out of them when I've get killed killed 3 or 4 times in a row by streak bonus kills.

 

I need to look at the game to see how to upload some of my own videos. Maybe I'll try that out this weekend.

Go to button layout and switch to Tactical, it will change the crouch to stick and melee to circle... Or it should, that's what it does the equivalent of on Xbox. I hate stick melee. Crouch is vital to taking cover, and lines up a more accurate shot at longer distances since you move at a slower rate. I also reload after every kill if I feel it's safe to do so. Since the slight of hand perk is gone, and fast mag isn't anywhere near as fast I do it a lot less than I used to.

Yeah every cod has boosters. I've only caught them once tact inserting in a room and headshoting each other. Ended up as a free kill for me.

Thanks for the tip. I'll switch it over to tactical layout. Theres been so many times when I went to crouch in the game only to start slashing the air with my knife as some guy sees me standing there like an idiot and kills me. -_-

I've unlocked the SMR and the Skorpion Evo. Both are among the best in the game. The SMR is a much more powerful FAL at the expense of a slightly lower fire rate. The Skorpion Evo has a super high fire rate and can kill very fast. Once you get extended mags for this thing its going to be wild.

Here are 2 more videos. click the quality button to go to HD... even though its not HD. I guess I need to get a HDMI cord for it to upload in good quality. Xbox uses AV cords with 6 jacks, but has a HD setting on it. Dunno how it works, but its just as good as HDMI, and it plays in 720p just fine on my TV.

 

SMR action - I went 16-2 on this map and the game glitched out and gave me another Hunter Killer drones instead of my Hellfire Missile. I was kinda pissed about that.

Nice guns! I look forward to trying them out.

 

I switched my controls to tactical and it definitely feels more natural. I tried the FAL but I sucked with it. lol. Maybe I just need to get a scope with it. The single shot really threw me off because I guess I can't shoot it fast enough in a head on fight. I've been playing the campaign and I'm halfway through it. I figured if I got the campaign done I'll have a better feel for how COD games play.

FAL is def not a close range weapon. If you dont have a fast trigger finger, its going to hurt against the 70% of players that whore out on SMGs. I like iron sights, and have no issue using them if they are good, the ACOG def is an upgrade for it though. You might want to try the overkill wildcard and pair it up with the R870 once you get the long barrel for that. Thats a nice Long Range/Short Range class. Single shot isn't for everyone thought. I see the FAL used a lot, but I dont see the SMR or SWAT-556 used very often. It seems everyone favors the Skopion or MSMC if they arent spamming the SVU-AS sniper. I've seen like 2 people ever using an LMG. I started out liking them, but the damage per shot is just silly weak, short or long.

I'm still trying to get used to knowing what guns ppl are using when they kill me. lol.

 

My brother recommended getting the selective fire unlocked for the FAL because in burst shots its extremely deadly.

If you get selective fire and extended mag (use fast mag til you get there) you'll def take people down fast. If you camp where I was staked out on Slums in that SMR video near the end, you'll pick up kills fast with the FAL... people camp in that room all the time, its a sure thing you get some head shots. If anything they will run out toward you like they were in the vid. Just make sure you have a bouncing betty on the other side of the van to give you some warning in the case that someone is trying to get to you from the other side. Another good place to do this is on Hijacked, on the spawn side with the life boats, If you get between the wall and the boat on the left, and keep ADS down at the door way, you'll pop a few kills before they try to come for you... again, a bouncing betty placed behind you will help greatly. Carrier is the best map for the FAL, you can always head shot snipers up on that ramped platform, or standing on the jets.

Knowing what guy you're being killed with is a bit difficult in this game if you aren't use to COD. Thats one thing the MW line does a bit better. Generally, in the kill cam it will tell you what gun it is plus all attachments they are using on it. I don't think it does in this game, but I don't spend too much time on kill cams anymore.

You're the guy i normally pop in the face with the FAL. :P I rarely go in those rooms, there is always someone with a shotgun or SMG camping it out with shock charges.

lmao. XD I've been shot in the face plenty of times in this game. XD I keep trying out random guns or class setups to get a feel for everything. I mostly use the Type 25 or the MP7 and go exploring the maps to learn them and I keep getting killed everywhere. :P I should probably load up some bot matches to learn the maps, but the bots AI is so weak its no challenge.

I was definitely doing better with the MTAR. I like the fire rate of the type 25 but it really doesn't have any stopping power. I mostly liked stealing other ppl's kills with it. XD

 

btw, are you signed up on COD elite? I tried to find you on the app to see what your stats and classes are but your username isn't showing up.

It works for xbox360 and ps3


https://elite.callofduty.com/

 

Q - What platforms will Call of Duty® Elite be available on for Call of Duty® : Black Ops 2?

A - Call of Duty® Elite will be available at launch on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, on select handheld and tablet devices, and on the Web.

 

There should be an app you can download just like on the ps3. I mostly just use the mobile app or check the website. Once you sign up on the elite app you can edit your classes from your phone and check other players stats that have signed up for elite.

I definitely have a better k/d with the MTAR. I've been using that type 25 way too much. I think once I started getting things unlocked for it I stuck with it.

I have the phone app and the xbox app, but I dont know that it lets you view other players cross platform like BF3 does. Like since you are on PS3, you can only view PS3 players. BF3 can go cross platform because you have an origin ID your soldier is attached to, while your COD profile is only attached to your console's account.

Oh! I see what you're talking about now. I think you are completely right about it. I didn't think it through because I don't see it mentioned anywhere on their site. It definitely looks like I only have access to viewing other PS3 member's profiles. Every random username I looked up all have 'ps3' in the url:

 

https://elite.callofduty.com/player/hq/ps3/9c9ab...

 

That sucks that its limited like that. Battlelog is awesome with its stats tracking on all platforms. Its a shame cod elite isn't that extensive. I actually had no idea what cod elite was until about 3 or 4 weeks ago. XD Has it been around for a while or did it come out with black ops 2? I see you can view stats from previous cod games on it also.

I cant even look at that link, so I guess i cant even hyperlink my profile... well I could, but only Xbox 360 users could view it. Otherwise you get:

 

 

This page has fallen victim to a horde of undead and is completely overrun. Save yourself and try logging in again at elite.callofduty.com

 

I just prestiged, and permanently unlocked ghost. I'll post my classes when i get back to where I want to be. Interestingly enough, you dont lose your camo's or attachments when you prestige. You cant prestige your weapons individually which causes you to lose your attachments, and start over again for the xp bonuses. Here is the main page from the iphone app:

Oops. It would help if I actually posted an entire link. I thought that was just some kind of session id code in the url. Here try this, its a direct link to my profile:

Oh, and I got the long barrel for the m870 shotgun. So I was using that and an MTAR and had fast hands equipped. I shouldn't play when I'm tired. I really sucked last night. I'll give you props on your shotgun use. You must have been getting better shots off than me because 4 out of 5 shots from a medium distance like in your videos were only giving me hit markers. That shotgun definitely kills from the waist up up close. People would drop like flies when I caught them around a corner.

Hmmm, I wonder if they nerfed it on PS3. I will say I've noticed its a tad less more powerful since the last two game playlist updates I was hit with. Do you ADS or hip fire it? I tend to use the "quick scope" method with it, I hit the ADS as I pull the trigger when I see someone. Plus what is your map strategy? I mainly use that class on Drone/Plaza/Turbine/Standoff. I run around the outside of the map, NEVER the middle of the map. I just make a big circle hitting camping hot spots. I wish I could upload a whole match so you could see how I run the class. Standoff is the best example. I always run into the wooden house for snipers upstairs, then I jump out, move to the concrete building for the campers upstairs, then I run along the outside to the other spawn, generally there is someone in that grassy pathway, and people camping next to tanks or on the roof of the buildings adjacent to it. I just run that ciricle. If I hit to much traffic and get killed, I reverse route and run the opposite way eventually coming up behind them.

 

And I still cant see your page. lol It just brings up zombies and says Zombies Ate Your Page.

I screwed myself. Everytime I died I noticed how out in the open I was. I setup my new class like that and jumped into some maps that I shouldn't have used a shotgun on. lol. I need to learn the maps still. I'll be getting on the multiplayer tomorrow morning and I'll try to get a grasp on what maps I should use shotguns on. I hardly ever quick scope because I'm used to bf3. If you shoot in mid scope your shot goes off at that moment to where the scope is pointed. So you have to be careful to not shoot until your scope is completely ADS. Is that how it works on COD? or should I hit scope then fire immediately to give myself a better hit marker/kill?

 

Damn cod elite. They should rip off battlelog and make a better site. :P

COD tends to throw realism out the window. If you pay a little closer attention to the kill cams, you will notice that there are a lot of times people start firing before they transition into ADS. Hip fire is impossible at mid range on BF3, but its not an issue on COD. Try the quick draw grip on your assault rifles, the shotgun might help too. I don't use quickdraw for the R870, because its ADS is pretty quick. You're bullets will fly where your crosshair is at until you go into ADS.. Plus the laser sights also aid hip fire.

In MW1, I use to run the MP5 with the steady aim perk that increased the accuracy even more from hip. I was inspired to do so after watching this guy wreck my face and whole team by running around hip firing the MP5 before people could line up a shot. He always stayed in motion. I adopted the tactic and became very good at it. Due to map design, and the watering down of gun damage, it doesn't work as well, but it still works for me with the shotgun.
