I sure do, the hit detection made this game unplayable when it was like that!

One day we shall all gather around a campfire and sing the praises of ye olde mw3, the exemplar of perfect hit detection and lag comp.

Was playing blops last night too. Getting pumped for blops 2....forgot how different they feel.

alright, don't kill me for being very late to the game. I just got into Black Ops and just picked up the Escalation pack since it's on sale. So pardon me for my ignorance with this zombie mode. Can you kill the director? Or are you avoiding him while killing the other zombies?

George Romero (the Director) can be killed. Just not very easily; and not for good. However every time you kill him, you get an extra perk (up to 6 I think). Best weapons to kill him with are PnP (Pack n Punched) Ray gun, Scavenger/Hyena (new sniper rifle), or a few Death Machines. biggrin.gif If you shoot him when you do not intend to, lead him to water and he cools down and stops raging. So best to avoid him initially and get your weapons upgraded before taking him on.

It's nonsense like this why I could never get into zombies. They simply don't explain what's going on. What all these tonics do, how the game works, whats the deal with the power being off, what the hell is a pack a punch etc. Then they start adding unique stuff to each map like the director, which only compounds the confusion.

I remember playing the moon map at cod XP with an equally inexperienced friend, and we'd get instantly destroyed by a horde. We eventually figured out something with a teleporter, only to rather quickly choke to death. We got up to leave, and one of the guys explained we needed to grab the spacesuits. How the hell am I supposed to know that? There's no indication towards it, there's never been this mechanic in a cod game before. Same with the director....

So don't feel bad you're confused. The whole design is confusing. You have to have a pretty high tolerance for trial and error and long stretches of monotony before you can enjoy zombie mode anyway.

At least MW3s survival mode had various difficulties so the first five minutes didn't put you directly to sleep. But L4Ds survival mode did it exactly right - the fun part is when you're overwhelmed. Why do we need this agonizingly slow run up to a reasonable difficulty? Just throw us into the fire, at let us do it over and over.

They went WAY overboard on Zombies. It's pretty much designed for the try-hards and jobless now.

I never took the time to look online how to play Zombies so I was pretty lost on how to get to a decent level. Towards the end of last year, I played it with an experienced player and it was a totally different experience. We got much farther and I used alot more equipment then I had ever gotten before.

thanks for the tips, guys! much appreciated!

You'd think after all this time, people would have the horde mode completely solid like in Gears of War. It's hard to get lost in Gears of War like the zombie mode in BLOPS. But yeah, I'll stick with this zombie mode and try to get better. Right now, I'm pretty horrible as I never quite know what to do in terms of strategy.
