The community always figures this stuff out and through 41+ hours I have been killed by all pistols combined a total of 70 times. I don't think it's that easy to dominate with them.
Well I don't mean to pretend that everyone is going to get 60+ kills with them, my point though is that the pistols are TOO POWERFUL and Fist's video shows a good example of how and he explains why. I'm seeing a lot of people run them as primary weapons when we all can probably agree, they shouldn't WANT to run them as primary weapons because pistols shouldn't even be competitive that way. None of us here are "Fist good", the guy is a God at CoD, but when people like him show things like this and people like him call for nerfs and show just how insanely overpowered some of these things can be, I pay attention, especially after encountering a shitload of KAP40's recently, online.
I personally think this "balance" many people were trumpeting early on with BLOPS II, is a mirage. I might be in the minority, but I think the weapons are balanced terribly and a lot of that has to do with the map design. Snipers have it made in this game due to some remarkable sight lines on high traffic areas....BUT, a lot of the combat benefits people that run with Shotguns or those god damn knifers, so what do you see a lot of in TDM and Domination? Snipers and Shotgunners. I thought the SMG guys really had it made in BLOPS, but I was wrong, it's the Shotgunners that win a lot of 1v1 fights. People like me that use LMG's and AR's are just afterthoughts in BLOPS II, the game designers are almost penalizing you for using them. For me to maintain my BLOPS I KDR which was 1.70 - 1.80 I would have to snipe in this game, but in BLOPS I, I was almost exclusively an AR player. I'm currently at a 1.47 on my GiantM0nkeyman account and that is dropping FAST from a high of 1.64 around Thanksgiving because I'm at such a remarkable disadvantage in 1v1 fights with the SCAR or QBB LSW, PLUS, in spite of an Internet connection that is probably faster than 90% of US households, and as rock solid as it gets, I know and can tell, that the lag compensation is costing me at least 20% in kills. The game is just full of warts and flaws right now! The best way of describing it would be that it's a supermodel with severe mental problems. On the outside, it looks perfect, but the more you're around it/her, the more issues you see and experience.
