Nice to know there's double XP going on. Will definitely be taking advantage of that through the weekend.

Played some more single player last night, I think I'm close to beating the Benghazi level. Trying to knock achievements out along the way, seems like that's the only way to really get points in this game.

So I built a new M4 build last night and had a silencer. Went positive 6 games in a row. I thought Ghost would remove the need of a silencer (pretty sure it did once upon a time.) but it doesn't.

Try the Kilo and the Oden suppressors too. There's one you can put on the Oden that is hilariously big and funny looking, but really good.

If you want to have some fun too, grab a decoy grenade and you can bait people into an area.

I think with the strong SBMM, you're always against better players, and better players use their radar a lot more. Throw a decoy into a popular camping room and watch the players swarming looking for a kill.

I'll work on those the next 2xXP weekend. I'm currently working on the AK and P90...Really loving the P90.

People fall for the decoy grenade? It doesn't sound like proper gunfire at all.

Well, supposedly if you hear a friendly decoy, it has that artificial sound, but your enemies hear actual gunfire. I haven't seen it proven, but I think that's how it works. I think the firecracker sound is just for friendlies. It definitely makes the red flash on the compass too which attracts players for sure. I used it a ton when leveling up the Fal.

I think the Ram7 is one of the best guns for short to medium range. It is really good once you get some attachments on it. Even on Shipment the thing wrecks.

So season 2 coming with 2 weapons,assault rifle that looks like a Sig 552 and SMG that loos like the UMP 45. New map called Rust, seems to another 6v6 chaosfest like Shhothouse.

There could be a new ground war map.

Very little meaningful content here.They have made BILLIOnS but can't even muster a decent DLC pack per season.

Is it the Rust map from MW2?

We ever getting Battle Royale?

It is most likely Rust from MW2, but they could redesign it. Most likely not though as the community loves XP farms.

No word on BR yet, but they did patch in much more advanced parachute control a few patches ago, so obviously people are speculating it is coming.

I would bet but probably not this season. My guess is later spring when the game starts to wind down. That will keep interest in it. My guess is this season will be the MW2 map remake season, which isn't a bad thing. I just hope they pick better maps. Some of the classic MW2 maps will be a blast though I think.

I’d like to see Bog from MW and Terminal from MW2.

With a new COD coming this year I feel like it would be wrong to keep waiting to release a BR mode in this. The sooner the better.

Bog was a terrible map imo. Great atmosphere, though.

I want Overgrown or Pipeline.

Give me Scrapyard and Invasion (I think that was the smallish city map that was good run and gun but not too small). I always loved Highrise too. That was the map that taught me to run and gun and stop worrying about playing passively so much.

I fear they seem to be abandoning the small-to-midsize maps that used to be so much fun for either the cluster f*** maps like Rust or huge maps that let people snipe.

The problem with some MW2 maps is they were campy back then, and are going to be worse now. Terminal was a fun map, but you're going to see tons of hard scoping. Even in MW2 it was hard to dig out a camping enemy, but in this game with mounted guns it is going to be very hard.

Wasn't Bog COD4? Or did they remake it for MW2 also? I just remember Bog being horrible nade spam, but that might have been COD4.

All I know is i've been grinding XP on Shipment 24/7 and I don't think I am the same person who started. I've seen things... done things... that change a person permanently. Placing mines on the spawns, blind firing RPGs into spawns, using teammates for cover. Completely ignoring objectives (lol @ the Hardpoint in the middle). I've spammed gas grenades just to be a d***. 😉

I played a bunch today. Just not running into the great competition anymore. Game is so much better now. Almost broke 100 kills on Shipment I was in my chopper gunner and had a jet on stand by. Always run out of time lol.

My games are better, but still really tough. My stats for the past week are .99 k/d and 8 wins and 10 losses (I think these are bugged because I played a lot more than that). That's actually not bad considering I only played Shipment.

Season 2 trailer. Strongly hinting at Scrapyard, but it looks to be a part of a much bigger map, but they did that with Vacant.

Anybody know the price of one of Season 2 Pass? I think I'm gonna jump on it this time around since I've been playing so much recently.

Don't know exactly, but these things are usually around $10. If you claim enough enough levels you should earn enough to get the season 3 battlepass for free.

Haven't played this game in like 2 weeks now and honestly don't miss it much. Might even just trade the game in at this point. Story was fun to play through, but coop, which I was looking forward to, is a complete s*** show. Online give or take depending on the night.

I definitely have a love/hate with the game. It is by far the most interesting COD in a long time. I would guess I've played this one more than any of the past games since MW2.

It is also worth checking it out again as they seem to have slightly tweaked the skill based matchmaking. It is still there, but you get a little more variety. It is still very strong though. It still does not play like past games that way. I definitely have more matches where I can at least get some streaks and have more fun.

I still have games where my KD is like -8 or even more, but those are generally objective based games and my points are usually towards the top due to captures/defenses/etc.

Streak wise, if I can get one five kill streak per game I'm having fun.

Yeah I still have games even in TDM where I get wrecked. Sometimes groups get together and just spawn kill and/or farm kills off objectives.

Anyway, patch notes are up and one fairly big change to perks. Moved overkill to perk 2, which means you can't run Ghost and Overkill, you have to pick one. Think this is a nice balance. No more campers with Ghost plus a sniper and an SMG at the same time.

Perks – Rebalancing
  • Perk 1 Slots
    • Overkill: Switched places with Killchain and will now be in Perk 2
    • E.O.D.: Removed hacking ability (added to Spotter perk)
    • Double Time: Double the recharge rate of Tactical Sprint
    • Quick Fix: Reduced health regeneration delay – any kill will immediately start regeneration
  • Perk 2 Slots
    • Ghost: Remove Snapshot grenade immunity (moved to Battle Hardened)
    • Restock: Change the equipment recharge rate from 30 to 25 seconds
    • Killchain: Switched places with Overkill In Perk 1
    • Pointman: Increase the score gain for Scorestreaks across all modes
  • Perk 3 Slots
    • Tune Up: Increase Field Upgrade cost reduction
    • Spotter: Added hacking ability (from E.O.D.); we’re currently working on the ability to hack through walls.
    • Battle Hardened:
      • Added Snapshot grenade immunity (moved from Ghost)
      • Added Gas grenade resistance:
        • Cough is no longer played when a player enters gas
        • Reduced slowdown under gas effect
        • Reduced blur when under gas effect
