But last night, I played HC to try to level up my shield and decided to run the crossbow with it and I actually had quite a few laughs and even a couple good games doing it.

Yes it can be fun to stop the grind and have fun with the game.

Ahh nothing like me and meow shielding the bomb sites in Demo while you ran around knifing everyone.

I didn't think weapon xp had anything to do with getting gold. No?

To get the camos no it doesn't that is solely based on the challenges for the weapon (headshots, double kills, bloodthirsty, long shot etc).

If you want to MAX prestige a weapon that is based on weapon XP. For example I had completed all the SMAW challenges and had it gold several weeks ago but the weapon was not MAX prestiged up until about a week ago when I realized it and started using it again.

Lately what I had done on the weapons is to not prestige them until I have completed the headshots challenge for that weapon. Once I do and its time to do the dreaded No Perks/No Attachments challenge I prestige the weapon (thus losing all the attachments) and start the NP/NA challenge. Usually by the time I am done with that the majority of the attachments are back for that weapon.

Gotcha - and then when I hit prestige 2, I can put my emblem of Connie's mom on my gun, right?

I got gold on the shield but gave up on the crossbow at around 150 kills. It's just too painful, maybe I'll reserve those tasks for the weekends when I've had a few drinks and don't care. I've been having fun running around with the tac45 though. That this is crazy powerful and accurate. It's actually a very effective class to use on small maps with lots of QCB since it can be raised and fired sooo fast. I run it with lightweight, scavenger/fasthands, dexterity/engineer, frag, blackhat.

I totaly hear you on the cross bow. What i did to enjoy myself with it was to use tri-bolt and scavanger and use it like a shotgun. if you hit somone up close with all three bolts you kill them with a direct impact. then you can pick up a pack from the scavanger and rinse/repeat.

I think I may have to try it like that, basically clone my tac45 class so I can be speedy on foot and dump the primary. I unlocked the tribolt but after a couple matches going 4-16 I said screw it.

tribolt is handy but you only get 2 shots total so hit somone or your going to have a knife class to load up on packs again.

That's the trouble I've been having. Also I'm getting lots of disappearing bolts that are shot, then I get killed and the bolt never detonates. I've had this issue with the RPG and SMAW as well, good ol lag I guess. Good news is I'm already up to 226 kills with it after a few matches today. Hopefully I can bust out the remaining challenges and be done with it in a couple days.

You're all free to enjoy what you want but I doubt I'll buy another CoD game again, gameplay, graphics.. nothing has evolved at all.

Question for anyone with some networking/IT type knowledge:

My brother in law's NAT suddenly changed from Open to Moderate a couple months ago without him changing anything within the network. Any ideas as to why this would happen? Recommendations to possibly fix? I did notice the other night that it took a while to matchmake with him in my party.

This is an ongoing issue with BO2. All the other CoD games display NAT Type: Open while with BO2, it switches between Open and Moderate. I have been meaning to look into a workaround but haven't found the time to do so.

Set up a static IP for the 360 and then do port forwarding or put the 360 in the DMZ. That's the ONLY way I can get a consistent open connection. Otherwise it stays moderate. It never did this in the previous games but there's something about BO2 that does that.

I agree with your statement and this is what I had setup (for my p3s..) in MW3. I personally went back to non-DMZ and relying on UPNP to setup the ports. It ha been working fine (had an open NAT) until one day after a patch I had an moderate type. I played despite and my connection was seriously suffering. But before setting up the DMZ again I decided to try out an old wives tale I kept hearing in past COD's. I dusted off the old MW2 disc. Popped it in. Sure enough had open NAT in that game. Played a couple games. Realized why I am not still playing MW2... Quit and put BLOPS2 back in.

Voila Open NAT again.

SO if you have MW2 sitting around try to load it up and see if it helps. I have not had NAT other than open since.

FWIW YMMV biggrin.gif
