Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 - Catch All (Oliver North Approved)

Interesting approach there. I wonder if it would make sense to try that plus wildcard & second primary instead of the launcher, but of course then you would only have 5 perks, and I guess also no attachments on the primary, but it would be less suicidal and still almost the same thing.

It's not really suicidal though. I hang back behind the initial firefight (yes, this means at the start of the match my team has to pick up my slack) until there are some guns on the ground. Then I snag the most appealing one (or the closest one) and go to town.

After that initial skirmish, any time I respawned there were generally weapons lying around close enough for me to rearm myself quickly.

The reason I pick the rocket launcher is because it seems like most of the time I'm one of the only people who bothers swatting down UAV's, counter-UAV's, and other air support.

I have never unlocked a gold camo/skin for any weapon in a Call of Duty game before, but last night I unlocked the gold one for the 870. I'm sure they made it less of a grind than in the past, because I could swear there are other guns I used more in previous games (hello, my beloved MW2 ACR!), but it still felt like a heck of an accomplishment regardless. I almost have the Surface-to-Air lock-on rocket launcher's gold camo unlocked too (finally nailed an AGR with it the other day, now just need to get a few more player-controlled scorestreaks and it's complete).

Not sure which shotgun to do next. Probably the KSG.

I just noticed last night that, when playing without a headset even plugged in, I get this brief little snippet of voicechat from players I just killed at close range. It usually doesn't last more than a second, but it's long enough to hear them shout swear words or yell "IT'S THAT SAME GUY" or whatever other complaint they might issue.

At times it's pretty funny. Borderline hilarious even.

It was funny yesterday until my last game where it was a kid that sounded like he was about 8 years old yelling f*ck every time I killed him.

Stopped playing after that.

I got the gold M8. It was quite a pain in the a$$. You need 150 kills withou using any perks and 150 without any attachments. I also have the SAM rocket launcher which was substantially easier.

Hmm. I've never seen that. I wonder if there is a title update or patch.

Ya there's a brief reverse (maybe it's both ways?) open comms when you kill someone like in L4D. Some folks get angry when you kill them over/over.

The KSG is a complete pain in the f*cking ass to gold. Gun is so damn annoying.

Yeah I heard people play CoD on the Wii, I think I even know someone who owns it for that system. You, sir, are a brave man Sorry, I don't own a Wii, or I would add you.

When did the PDW become the gun everybody uses? For me it's usually just a stopgap until I unlock the MSMC again, but it very suddenly seems like *everybody* is using it all the time.

large clip, and you may just be hitting a cycle where everyone is trying to go gold at the same time. I actually like it over the MSMC btw, but prefer the skorpion over all teh SMGs.

I have never bought a map pack for Call of Duty in the past but this one has me interested from the multi-player map designs to the new Zombie stuff.

I'll definitely be picking it up for the PC

I'll be playing on 360 tonight. If anyone wants to party up, shoot me a message.

I'll be on a bit later.

Double Xp this weekend. I won't be around at all on Saturday and a good chunk of Sunday, but I'll be on tonight to try and reap some benefits.

I play at least a little almost every day anyway. Sounds like I'll play a little extra this weekend.

Funny trailer for teh new map pack

Im jealous of you 360 folks!

Yeah, I saw you on last night but wasn't able to get on right then.

It's just a pity we won't get the new map pack until next week.

I didn't understand where they were going with it a minute in. Glad I kept watching, that was hilarious. I haven't played CoD in a few weeks, but some great reviews might get me to pick this up. I'll probably play a bit this weekend for the x2 XP.

I'll be on all weekend. Trying to get that 5th prestige.

Looking forward to the maps next week.

Hey, that's the guy in Fargo who put the other guy in the chipper and he's putting things in the chipper in this advert. Is that what he is doing to his career by doing this ad too?

I'm a bit burned out on CoD and more maps looks like just more of the same to me at the minute. The good ad definitely helps but i'll see if CoD pals get embrace it before deciding.

Well, I did it. I got to 5th prestige. I started out on Friday at 3rd prestige, level 50 or so. So, I did the whole 4th this weekend and finished tonight in 5th level 5. That was quite the binge.

Yeah, I'm pretty burnt on it now. I'll go back to PC and finish some other stuff up now...until next weekend when I'll jump into the new maps.

Had some fun games with Obirano last night, the best part was when I first realized he was in a game with me: because he sniped me!

Then we had some back-and-forth sniping, which had me rolling. Afterward I joined his party and we actually played on the same team for a while.

Fun games as always. I did max out the sniper rifle last night. The double xp when added to those challenges was ridiculous.

Since the update I have noticed allot of people whoring the C4. I'm not sure if they tinkered with it or not but it seems like the new thing to exploit. In Core mode you can throw and detonate it faster then most guns can kill you.

The new maps are nice though.

People are still playing this?
