And I've definitely had the experience where I got slaughtered 3 or 4 games in a row. Games where it felt like I'd spawn and be dead in 5 steps every time. Then suddenly on the next game I'd be blasting around the map dropping enemies seemingly before they could react.

I always assumed that was just the effect of random network latency, but it seemed so lopsided where I'd have one or two good games, then several extremely poor ones. And that imbalance didn't feel random.

gonna wreck my self 5 games in a row so I can go drop a nuke on some kiddos that have never played an fps game before

Some additional observations...one I was hoping would be addressed in the update. Maybe the 1.11 update?

The Dragonov is underpowered for a sniper. It's obviously intended for the no-scopers that run around shooting at medium or close range.

At medium to long ranges, its no better than one of the Marksman rifles equipped with a sniper scope.

The 725 is still ridiculous. There was a guy running around with it hilariously equipped with a sniper scope. I think he was doing it mostly to make a point, but several of the kills he got were at respectable rifle ranges.

Euphrates Bridge: Domination has a fundamental flaw that needs to be fixed. If you team spawns at C flag, you will lose.

From the A flag side, you can directly defend B almost immediately upon spawning, and do so from a variety of covered positions inside buildings.

From the C side, the bus on the bridge blocks all line of sight to B flag from anywhere on that entire side of the bridge. The only options are to brute force assault from your end of the bridge or run to the A flag side where you can cover B. Both of those options expose you to direct fire from the enemy who can fire on you from several covered positions.

Still troubleshooting crashing issues, though I haven't bhad a chance to play since reinstalling Sunday.

Dragunov has always sucked. In all of history for every game.

Agree on Euphrates and 725.

I'd add that the sniper rifles are ridiculously useless in all but the largest of maps. Accuracy of 725, stubby assault rifles and smgs on large maps is also pretty lame and in need of nerfing.

Shoothouse was fun to upgrade weapons for sure. I prefer these OG maps over shoothouse. The nostalgia is real....

I am not giving this game one more ****ing cent.

I'll be surprised if it keeps my interest until February when Last of Us 2 drops.

I'm not paying for that ****.

I'm still playing though. It's got issues that hopefully get fixed, but I don't care about the shiny stuff that they are peddling.

Same. I still find the game enjoyable but have decided against the random splattering of skins and whatnot that comes with the BP.

How long has spawn killing been a thing?

Makes me glad I left a while ago.

I have not personally seen anything as bad as that post a few up from reddit.

It happened to me like the first day I played. On the hazmat building map. I was spawning in that courtyard area at the end of the map near the hazmat building and some dude was on top of something shooting over the wall into my head as I spawned - happened several times in a row.

Yeah, spawning is unbelievably bad still. I realize the need to tweak it, but wow.

I have, on several occasions, spawned directly in front of an enemy who happened to be firing at something else at the time.

I'm talking I appeared just outside melee distance. It should never let that happen.

And likewise, on several occasions I've rounded a corner, seen an enemy, and fired my shotgun only to have another enemy spawn directly in front of the barrel of my gun and immediately take a round to the center of their back.

Given that, its no surprise that spawn trapping is so severe. If it allows spawning to happen with enemies that close, it's almost unavoidable.

Hope you get the crashing fixed. I don't think I've experienced a single crash yet.

And I agree, all but about 3, maybe 4 of the maps are too small for a sniper to be much use.

I'm also terrible with a sniper. Lots of others are way better with them. But I have found that the PKM with the Mono Silencer and long range barrel with a sniper scope is as good or better at long range and still very usable at medium ranges. And still has the option to spray hipfire.

I'm also still pissed thermals don't see thru smoke.

sniper is good for Ground War but it just sucks that theres MASSIVE glint from the scopes and OP tanks wandering around. still. i'm able to generally find some little hide spots and keep the K/D from taking massive hit in GW with the HDR or AX50. one thing ive been having difficulty with is too much recoil to even see the bullet drop trajectory. i spent like 14 shots at so many different holds on this one target. never could get the one hit i needed for a kill before my pos was obviously blown and i got hit by a tank round.

You are going to be happy...eventually.

Infinity Ward has confirmed that a fan-favorite mode is returning to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. When the mode will return precisely, isn't divulged, but Infinity Ward promises it will in a future update. The mode is the Shoot House 24/7 playlist, which was a favorite mode of many when the game launched. However, this week when Season 1 and the game's first Battle Pass hit, it was removed, angering many fans in the process.

This COD has its own type of play style compared to the other cods where you're used to running out and killing. I understand it is a camping game unfortunately but i'll play the game but do it better. Currently at 2.05 k/d and 1.55% win ratio

Uh huh. And let's hope this is never repeated because it's a terrible execution.

Anyone else play FFA? The past two weeks I've noticed 80% of games will finish with just 4 people, if that. Is there some new trend/reason that people are dropping out early? Or is it bad connections?

I stopped playing just because my friends stopped playing and got bored lol...

Playing this game by yourself is really tough because of all the BS you encounter. The fact that they brought back some older maps does entice me to play this weekend.

I'm grinding through one of the challenges where I had to capture 20 flags in Ground War. It made me realize how much I hate that game mode. Idk how many times I got sniped by someone across the map watching a flag. If I wasn't getting sniped, I was getting shot in the back immediately after spawning. After 4 long matches I finally got 20 flags and will hopefully never play GW again.

In other news, I have found that the M4 with the 32 round 9mm mags, corvis barrel and aim op sight is an incredible combination. I can pick people off at stupid distances for 9mm without fighting any recoil and still destroy at close range.

I had the 725 as secondary but I switched to the 357 after seeing the results of one leveled up.

I think my favorite thing to do is use the JOKR on domination maps. Fire, run to the objective and by the time I get there, it's just about to rain down on the flag as support. Sometimes I'll just launch a hail Mary across the map to piss people off. 30 seconds after launch, double kill? Sweet.
