Being a noob at MW is a massive learning curve. Cover your corners, don't run and try to learn the maps as quickly as possible.

Was hoping for a good session today when I got home but the wife is all over the bleedin telly ! I've heard Spec Ops Survival is a good way to get to grips for multiplayer and learn the maps.

Thanks for the pointers

Played survival mode last nite and found it really addictive, more enjoyable than the campaign tbh.

Had another dabble online and I agree there is a massive learning curve, I was in one match and everyone was level 60+ the map was pretty open, every fckers running round wi sniper rifles, n im carrying a shity sub machine gun, n shotgun. I was in fckin awe at some of the kills on me !

One thing I will say is that more than a few times i've unloaded half my Mag on someone, they turn around, bang, 1 shot dead ! Is this just from me having so few attachments on the guns and no good perks ? Granted I am by no means great at aiming but some of these were dead on !

Completed all the Spec Ops missions earlier today, just need to do the survival missions for the Plat.  Overall they are most definitely easier than MW2, I solo'ed all of them apart from the ones that require two people.  In fact the game actually makes it easier for you to solo them (you can take more damage, less enemies etc.) which makes missions like Smack Town and Server Crash noticeably easier.  Compared with MW2 where it was very, very hard to solo all the missions.  Works out fine for me though, Specs Ops sucks ass anyway and it means I have to spend less time trying to find competent team mates who know what they are doing.  Not looking forwards to this level 15 in all Survival modes though, definitely going to be a grind :(

Popped back to MW3 this week

FMG9's still overpowered.

Matchmaking fecking useless

Spawning just as bad.

Rage quitters increasing and causing lobbies to close

Lag all over the place

Plus continued messages offering infinite prestige tokens and infected lobbies


Skyrim and Saints Row 3 on Christmas list. When these arrive I can't see myself going back to MW3.

I prestiged once and got up to about level 20-odd and then just couldn't be arsed anymore. Even using different guns and perks it feels too samey. Maps are too small and there just isn't enough variety.

It wasn't bad and is very polished but going back to BF3 has been refreshing.

January 24 for first DLC.

Three months after release. So much for monthly DLC for Elite members eh?

I will hopefully be taking an arrow to the knee before that arrives.

Feeling exactly the same as you guys toward this game at the mo. Theres just no interest in it whatsoever. They really have turned CoD into a camp-a-thon these days.
I fully admit I ran with the Scar + silencer the other night and camped it up to see what the fuss was about, got 33-6 by the end. Completely boring and pointless game.

Skyrim however, is flippin brilliant.

I keep buying these games. Then I get molested in MP, again and again and again... and of course get all pissed, because that's obviously not fun.  I'd say I have some modicum of fun playing MP, say 10% of the time.

I wonder why I buy this stuff, but I'm sure they love consumers like me.

This is insane to me. Everything seems to be going at 45744 miles per hour, with no camping chances. Usually camping is my chance to get one or two kills in COD, but this is so cramped and fast there's none of that crap. I go down less than 30 seconds after I've spawned.

I suck at these things...

Yeah I agree that the pace of the game is very quick, you dont have much time to think while moving around the map. What I mean by a camp-a-thon is the silenced weapon / assassin pro / heart beat sensor f**kers that sit in the dark corners pointing their sight at the way in. I think it must be a combination of the maps and perks that make a considerable number of players sit in corners with assault rifles.

And no disrespect toward quick-scopers, but thats not really a viable way to play the game. It really isnt. The other night one quick scoper got the final killcam, the shot impacting almost a full metre to the right of the victim in question.

Ah, I see. Understand what you mean.

With regards to quick-scoping... I don't like it much, seems to make game not fun for both winners and loosers. I played a random team death match where my team was annihilated by one of those guys. The next match I was on his team and he whupped everyone. Neither game was fun.

I don't understand no scoping! Is it skill or some kind of hack?
I also keep noticing people doing the drop shot without any pause. I know there are a few youtube vids where people show how to use a modded joypad to combine shoot and duck into one button. The are also a few jump shot people around! They're probably even more annoying.

edit: I just worked out how to do it! You just sort of do a quick scope and shoot!

It's interesting that all the maps are small, messy, super cramped and incredibly intense. I presume they made it like that to make it fast, avoid too much camping and to keep things crazy and over the top. But then you wonder why would anyone play sniper style in such a crazy bunch of headless chickens scenario...

And suddenly the quick.scoping makes sense. It's the only reason to pick up that type of weapon.

Personally I think it ruins the game (probably because I'm not skilled enough to play like that myself), but I can see why they did it and I'm sure the hardcore crowd find it fun.

Meh. Got a loan of this off a friend just to fly through the campaign. Took me about 9 hours on veteran but you could probably do it in 5 if you want to play on normal just for the story() and the experience. It's ok. It looks great and there are some good tense moments and some really good exciting action sequences. It's just gotten a bit old and boring now and you know what to expect and can pretty much predict everything. If you're not interested in the multiplayer which I'm not then I'd say just rent or get a loan. At least it's a hell of a lot better than Battlefield 3's story mode.

Ahh the typical it's all exactly the same cheap shot bollocks. You do realise Battlefield games have hardly changed at all whilst COD has added Spec Ops, Zombies and now a new survival mode whilst Battlefield has the same old game modes with bugger all new added, oh wait they added a 2 player spec ops mode as well which is apparently utter shit.

Anyway they've added a new game mode today called Infection it's quiet fun legging it as loads of crazy knife wielding dudes are chasing you.

Look, I've played MW3, and while I can see the appeal, it really is cheap of the developers to not make any major inovation (especially with at least 2 separate parties working on it), what's the difference does new guns, graphics, killstreaks make?
You kill people. You earn killstreaks. People kill you. You unlock shit for guns and callsigns. The more "talented" few upload "amazing" kills to Youtube.
This principle has not changed since CoD 4.
Hell, it runs on the same engine.

The changes from Battlefield 2 to 3 have involved building a whole new engine with destructible environments, completely new animations (FYI the CoD character animations haven't changed since CoD 4), stunning graphics with advanced lightning techniques, and a big tweak to the basic MP gameplay (e the inclusion of Rush (a completely different objective based gameplay mode that was developed in BC and BC2), an overhauled class system narrowing down somewhat 6 classes to 4 with some great new devices and gameplay (such as the Javelin/ SOFLAM mechanic), not to mention some great new ideas for maps (bas jumping), not to mention the inclusion of Jets, which were seldom left out of BC1 and 2.

Look, don't mistake me for a totally BF fanboy. I loved CoD 4, and MW2 was... alright. But no major changes are being made to these games, so why should I spend my money on the same thing? Nothing beats some good ol' Call of Duty 4 Team Deathmatch.
Call of Duty started the whole shooter craze (after Halo, of course) but now the competition has caught up and is offering different things like bulletstorm, Rage, etc. Unless CoD changes the formula, I won't be buying another one.

Look, this is just my opinion, I can see why people play it, I respect their opinions (mostly), you challenged me, so there you go.

I agree with most of this (MW2 was the death of CoD, I even thought Black Ops was better! Take that Treyarch haters!) however Bub wins the argument for having a wonderful avatar.

this came through from Lovefilm today, had a quick blast this afternoon, got bored of the campaign in the first mission so flipped over to MP....

MP is just shit - no major change from black Ops or MW2 for that matter - the inclusion of the Kill Streak carrying over once you die is a bit weird (surely once you die your kill streak is over), but quite a good thing none the less - It's just like Homefront that came out last year.

Spec ops is more of the same, I just cannot see any reason why I should move from BF3 to this.

I was playing through the early stages of the campaign today (on normal, I'll go back and have a crack at veteran but I always get too frustrated) and thought it was pretty epic to be honest. I haven't finished BF3's campaign yet but having played both it's only backed up the feeling that MW3 for campaign, BF3 for multiplayer.

I've just been through the 'turbulance' level. Fantastic stuff. The campaign is so fast and ridiculous it makes it great. Missed the achievement for shooting them all though, I knew straight after the 'slow mo' section that if I'd done it right one should have popped, it just had that feel to it.

How is Veteran on this? I'm tempted to use a bit of my outstanding credit to fire through the SP, but just wondering whereabouts it's pitched? About the same as MW2?

I'd say it's a good bit easier than 2 actually. Took me maybe 8 or 9 hours to go through on Vet on my first and only playthrough.

I would. My only regret with MW2 is not getting time to do the Spec Ops properly.

Now don't you go completing all those Spec-Ops without me pal! I will need alittle help too you know.

Glad to hear 'Veteran' doesn't sound too difficult and frustrating......I mean Tal managed it. In my experience I think the hardest 'Call of Duty' on 'Veteran' for me was 'Call of Duty 3'............by far the hardest, especially trying to hold out at the end of the game. What a bitch!
