Holy crap the AGR one was hysterical. I may have to try that just for the fun of it, LOL.

And how in the hell does the C4 planted on a Dragonfire not destroy the Dragonfire when it is detonated - WTFBBQ?

Is the Iron Sights challenge broken? Mine says 0 kills on the progress yet I've done the no attachments, no perks challenges on other weapons. I know for sure I shot at least 1 person aiming down iron sights doing those challenges. WTF?

Which gun? I know some have an iron sight attachment. At least the Ballista does so gotta attach the iron sight attachment for that challenge.

The "iron sight" for the challenge is actually an attachment for one of the sniper rifles. I think only one has it...maybe two.

It's listed under the Prestige challenges not under a specific gun and doesn't say anything about a specific gun in the challenge description though which is rather dumb.

I agree that it is rather dumb, but that's how it is.

I don't have Nuketown 2025 DLC because I didn't pre-order my copy. I thought I get that with season pass though?

Nope, season pass just gives you nuketown zombies, which was collectors edition exclusive. No other way to get nuketown 2025 but preorder (so far).

I've got an hour or so before work, I'm gonna toss it on right now.

Some good stuff in those videos, most notably:

From a usefulness standpoint:
- negating an enemy EMP grenade's effects by EMPing yourself
- using trophy system to get rid of a grenade stuck on you


From a humor standpoing:
- Attaching C4 to dragonfire/RC Car/AGR/Express Train
- Throwing a grenade down the chimney on Nuketown
- Launching the AGR across the map

Peacekeeper is pretty cool. Imagine they took an m27's power and fire rate, matched it with the recoil and iron sights of the type 25, and gave it SMG mobility. It's a little weak up close, and its not as accurate as the m27, but its pretty good for an all purpose weapon with good mobility. Reload is very quick, but only a 30 round clip, so you have to reload constantly.

Grind (the skatepark) reminds me a lot of stockpile. There's a central area indoors with B and a ring around it. Only one side is actually half pipes, the other side is just standard squarish walls. Also it took us until 2013, but we've finally got realistic wavy man physics.

Downhill is a lot like discovery, both in look and layout. B has so many windows and perches around it, that its going to be crazy hard to take.

Mirage seems like the most standard layout, its doesnt really compare to anything in particular, its so generic. B is off to the side of A and C though, so you get a lot of crossover from A to C, the spawns are difficult to control.

Hydro is a really long map, like convoy or boardwalk. It's the biggest one and pretty complex, so it'll take the longest to really figure out.

Overall a really solid pack, no one is going to hate any of these maps.

Lol true. I'm already hearing a couple of crybabies in game chat, cause they're getting killed from random spots. One guy already declared them the worst maps ever.

BD, If people are saying that, they have really short memories. Just looking at these maps I can tell they aren't going to be bad.

JITU, i may have a code if you are interested. I have to go check when I get home and see if I can find the card. I bought 2 copies of blops 2 and sold one to amazon and didn't send the codes in. If I can find it I can probably hook you up.

Has anyone else seen a lot more boosting these past few days. I guess it's because of the double XP but just about every day I have played since friday I have had matches with some guys boosting. I was partied up with 3 other people and we made it a point to seek them out one Hijacked. the guy on our team was puttinig down guardians and we would shoot his gardians and keep killing the two guys on the other team that he was boosing with. We couldn't hear them complain but I am sure they were not having the time that they were expecting.biggrin.gif

Yes I have noticed that, plus, I have noticed more "Master Prestige" level players to this point in the games release than in any other CoD. I know not all of them are boosting, but I do get the feeling some people either know some tricks to ranking quickly (or skipping it altogether), are boosting, or more and more people are playing the game for longer periods of time than before. One thing is for sure, Master Prestige doesn't equal skill, my 12 year old son and I were on a team playing against a team that had three people of that level, and our team smoked 'em.

It just takes a lot less to get there than it did in past games. I've played about half the time of what I've played MW3 so far, and I'm already at prestige 7. (Vs 5 in mw3). There's a lot more challenges, and double XP applies to those too now....this will prob be the first cod I ever max out on (until they raise it).

played TDM on all the new maps this AM.
they are the usual Treyarch maps.
nothing as cool as Hazard, Hotel or Convoy from BO, but nothing as potentially frustrating as Kowloon either.
plenty of action everywhere for all play styles.
