I'm really not seeing it in the team modes which is all I play. The game is clearly designed around that. Someone 'camping'? Flash or smoke him out and let your teammate kill him. Easy. All the strong buildings have so many entrances. Smoke grenades are really effective. Check your corners. 

 

34 kills 13 deaths on hq in gun runner there with a 13 kill streak (and not camping, just playing the objective well). never thought I'd be getting decent k/d on a cod ever again. The PKM is a beast, reminds me of the RPD in CoD4 in that it's really deadly at all ranges but no one seems to use it.

We are playing search and destroy almost exclusively as a 3-4 man team and it is absolutely fantastic. I really enjoy the one life rounds. It's unbelievably tactical if you want it to be.

 

Still enjoying the standard marksman rifle (up to level 40) and the last shotgun.

 

Tried the riot shield also last night which is quite fun..

I have it on PC :p 

 

Im loving it, I hate run and gun , sort of adapted to it in Blops because I had to, but this is much more like it for me.
 

Trying a hybrid play technique atm with careful movement. Still getting masacred by jumpy twitch shooty lads, don't know what they are all complaining about.

I've been trying just using the M4 and keeping the riot shield on my back so it's harder to get shot in the back.

 

I need to get my sniper upgraded because it's useless at first. 

 

This game is great. Multiplayer is a lot of fun, campaign was great. It's defo worthy of the Modern Warfare title.

Finally got to play this last night. 

 

Played for an hour and a half and realised... this is not fun. Why am i playing this over battlefield. Wait, theres a reason i have not been playing this franchise for years.

Although i will give it a few more hours and see if the other game modes click  and finish the campaign. Its getting sold if it doesnt click.

 

Also, the lag was fucking atrocious when i played my small stint. Players freezing in place and the like. Im playing on X on a 50mbps connection so fuck knows what is going on. Add in that i kept getting put in 6 vs 2 matches (me being in the 2) that were heavily behind. And i dont want to even comment on the fact everyone is camping. I thought people might be over exaggerating, but yup. Whenever i thought i could move i was dead. Whenever i camped i could get high k/d. No cunt plays the objective.

 

I can see some resemblance of fun here but it needs major changes.

39 kills 7 deaths on St Petersburg Domination. Moving around constantly (but smartly) with a shotgun (and some help from two Vtol jets, brilliant killstreak). Playing the objectives too. Best fun I have had in cod in years. Admittedly using the r9-0 shotgun which feels maybe a bit too effective, it's glorious, like I'm playing DOOM haha. 

 

But it's all campers amirite.

 I just played my first few games of CoD since MW2 and I thought it was great fun. I put tons of hours in to the original CoD4 and this feels reminiscent. Obviously its been a long time and I've exclusively played Destiny for the last 5 years so my point of reference is long way from this but it felt like theres a pretty good tactical game here if you can get in the right team.

 

Campaign looks fucking glorious too.

Tried Spec Ops last night.  Man, that shit is difficult / unfair if you're lone wolfing it.  The map in that mode seems so big, I'm wondering why they didn't just use that for a Battle Royale mode.

 

I managed my biggest streak (16) yesterday on Gun Runner Dom - definitely my favourite map so far.  I've also unlocked bouncing betties now - much more fun than claymores.

 

I only hate one map so far - the one with the windmill/warheads/church.  It's the only one I back out of.

I love how this ancient meme is still appropriate. I think I first saw this when I used to play Unreal Tournament over dialup:

So I’ve got some time to play this morning. I boot up the PS4 and it forces a download. Ok it’s only 1.7gb. I wait. Then it spends (so far) 20 minutes ‘copying’. This drives me spare. Why can’t it just do this in the background? Why sit there and wait till I want to play to update the thing. Is there a setting I’m missing? Every option in automatic downloads is switched on.

 

My number one hate about the PS4 is it acting like a computer. Just don’t. I only wanted to shoot some shit for 30 mins. That time is now gone staring at a progress bar.

Well, fuck. How depressing. Fun while it lasted.

 

Why don't all these whining, entitled, man children just play the last BLOPS if that has all the nonsense that they want?

 

Instead of wanting IW to make this, far more interesting, COD exactly like the one they already have? I'll be very, very  disappointed if IW dilute this to make it easier for those dickheads as this is the most fun I've had with a FPS since the Titanfall games...

Played all day again and will be on until midnight, it really is tremendous. Filtered my playlist so I'm only getting objective based games - Domination, Kill Confirmed and CyberAttack are all amazing and make the maps play completely differently.

 

My default loadout is the KILO 141 assault rifle with all five slots filled and a n00b tube on the under-barrel (only one shot but gets refilled with the field upgrade), a perk to use a 725 shotgun as my secondary weapon (currently upgrading this, best range of all the shotguns), Claymores, Heartbeat Sensor, Ghost perk, and a perk that gives you an additional Claymore. Just having so much fucking fun with this build, the shotgun destroys up close and with a decent scope the KILO gets me plenty of long distance kills. Totally doable to lock an area down for the duration of a match, defending on Domination with the shotgun and Claymores is so gnarly and messy. Love it.

It'll be really shit if they bring the red dots back on the map, I'm all for getting rid of the map entirely. Use your ears, the compass, cues from your team and your intuition to get kills. The devs should dig their heels in and ignore feedback from just one week of play, I hate it when any developer loses their cool and gets led by the nose by their playerbase. It dilutes their vision and ends up being this scrappy, messy design by committee on a massive scale. Players should trust the developers to do their jobs and make the game they want to make. I follow bands where they've allowed their fans to direct the album and it always ends up horribly. Same with games.

 

I did think how depressing it must have been for Infinity Ward to be on the receiving end of this madness after they'd spent so much time and effort making this amazing game. Only out for a fucking week and the internet is soaking its collective knickers because they can't get easy killstreaks anymore. Fuck me.

Borrowed the game and spent the past 6 hours or so playing through the campaign. Definitely a return to form, i cant believe how good the graphics/cut scenes are even on a standard ps4.

 

Doubt ill bother with any of the multiplayer stuff though before i give it back..

I'm doing really badly at this (0.72 K/D) but still loving it. More importantly I'm learning the maps, which should make me up my game a bit. I'm still convinced there's some cheating going on, people just seem to know where I'll be and have it scoped in as soon as I turn a corner. You'd almost think they had put the time in and learned the maps.

I'm only like 2 levels away, but I really can't wait to unlock the Pointman perk at level 49.  You are basically rewarded for playing the objectives - capping flags, collecting tags, assists, etc - and scores will now contribute to getting streaks.  Perfect for Dom, Kill Confirmed and Ground War.
