I guess I should put the target finder on every gun.

Yes the Target Finder is rather atrocious but it really works well. Too well. I don't get why you drop the baby monitor (cause it's terrible too) but then add the Target Finder which is a pretty similar concept. Bizarre. Get rid of both.

Why does everyone hate the target finder? I don't get it.

Still some massive faults in this game that will prevent it from having the lifespan that Black Ops 1 had.

Unfortunately/fortunately most of them can be fixed. What's unfortunate is that they probably won't.

1. Makes no sense that a guy can jump onto a window ledge or crouch on stairs and have a full view of the room/playing field and can aim at anything, yet all you see is 2-3 inches of the top of his head. No gun barrel, no shoulder... just the tip of his hat.

2. Haven't checked since the update but the autosniper with no recoil is laughably unbalanced.

3. FMJ is slightly overpowered, however it's completely illogical that I can shoot through foot thick cement yet some select WOOD crates are invincible to any type of FMJ rounds. And back to point 1, of course the people that hide behind these crates have a full view of the playing field yet only have half of their head exposed.

4. Lag seems to be worse now than during launch week.

5. This is by far the worst. The game is pretty much unplayable if you aren't in a party and want to play ground war or anything that doesn't have a mercenary option. The game puts zero effort into matchmaking fair teams. No Treyarch, it's not a brilliant idea to put all the mic players on one team. Players with mics tend to be better, and tend to be in parties more often than not. Rather than split two 4-man parties, the matchmaking system will just put them together. I shouldn't have to turn on my mic or party up just to be on a reasonable team, and even then it's not fun to dominate round after round without a close game for hours when you do get on stacked teams. I tried it out again this morning, partied up with another 2.0+ player and we kept being put on dominant teams even when the game easily could have balanced out the teams. One lobby our team had 5 players with kdr's over 1.75 (my party of 2 + random party of 3) and the other teams best was 1.08. Pathetic.

6. Does domination game mode even exist anymore? When I play GroundWar it's at most played 15-20% of the time. Is it that hard to make a separate playlist for GW Domination? Especially given how smallish the maps are and Treyarch's spawn "system", kill confirmed and TDM are **** at 9v9.

the head-glitching and cover system is probably the worst thing about this game, it lends so well to camping/sniping...

and yes, there is a Domination mode...its called Domination

My primary issue is still the lag comp issues. I know lag is a reality with every online game, but BO2 seems like the worst I've ever played in terms of lag struggles. Putting almost half a clip into a guy without getting a single hit marker is absolutely unacceptable. Latency will always be an issue - I get that - but this degree of latency is outright ruining the game. It's absurd I can maintain host status for 10+ games, racking up 3+ KDR game after game, then find a lobby in which I'm not host and struggle to maintain a 2.00 KDR. That's bad.

My overall KDR finally dipped below 2.00 again last night. Fairly frustrating. It's not the end of the world - I'm still at 1.99 - but it's still extremely frustrating. Going for long stretches of dominating everything you see to long stretches of total suck = frustrating.

And yeah, target finder. Noob status. There are MAYBE two maps it's acceptable on: Turbine and Carrier. Everything else is too small or maze like for it to be effective. It's terrible at rushing any kind of objective and encourages camping and ADSing.

I don't mind the patch at all. Hadn't realized it was in effect. Went 29-10 on Kill Confirmed and the score could've been better if not for my ****** connection. Yeah the betties are a little slower but not by too much.

Did notice the increased hip fire recoil and that annoyed me at times.

Ahhh, I loved the Lightning Strike, but to be fair, a low scorestreak like that either had to be nerfed or they had to increase the point requirement. Now you just have to play a guessing game (kind of).

I actually got good at dodging Bouncing Bettys. This only helps. Didn't use the concussion grenade too much. Didn't use Shotguns either.

They increased recoil on the MSMC, which is fair for everyone, but it's my favorite SMG

Lately I haven't had too much trouble with spawn traps. It's annoying spawning on the other side of the map when playing hardpoint though. But again, it's fair.

At least Treyarch fixed some stuff. The connection issue needs to be fixed though. Although I haven't had a game freeze in ages which is a good thing I guess.

It may weaken that shotgun, but considering it was OP in the first place, that's not a big deal. And they only weakened the Remington. The rest of the shotguns were uneffected by the patch (I believe).

So shotguns still have their use. It's a very limited use compared to ARs and SMGs, but they're still fun.

Had myself my first bad day in BLOPS 2 after prestiging my Vector. Found out just how much out of my comfort zone I am without my default class. That and my connection to the servers was awful, I'd put half a clip into a guy and suddenly I'm dead. Check the kill cam and he had been shooting me for a good 4 seconds before I saw him shooting in real time. Ridiculous.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. Why the community isn't more up in arms about the latency issues in this game is beyond me.

Reduced lethal range of 3-hit kills from 250 to 50 inches and increased recoil when using select fire.

This new patch will change things up quite a bit. I really don't like the delay being put on the lightning strike. It was good the way it was. The UAV is now 425 pts. Good and bad. I wonder if more people will run RCXD kind of like BO1. Also looks like all SMG's got nerfed esp the MSMC and PDW.

This update benefits me, because all I use is AR's

I use UAV's and Lightning Strikes, but oh well.

They need to fix the bullet following that going on. I legit run behind a wall, and it seems that the bullets follow me.
