And I believe they give PS3 users the double XP even without them getting the map pack.

Finished 100 headshots with the M8. Finally, that was a grind and a half.

No perks/attachments is certainly annoying, but I find I usually still lead my team in points when playing that way Should gold that gun tomorrow if I have time. Then only the MTAR, Type25 and AN-94 stand in my way of gold ARs

Wow, never noticed the diference between headshots on a LMG and an assualt rifle. Had 27 on 430 kills with my lsat, not bad i thought.

Had 2 more with my MTAR on 200 less kills. Just got my coco camo too!

I am absolutely shocked that tactical insertion boosting is still running rampant. First time playing a new Call of Duty in a few years and I can't believe they still haven't done anything about it.

Don't get me wrong, booster hunting is fun. But wow, COD must not care at all that it exists.

Why tactical insertions even exist is beyond me.

I think it's only useful for capture the flag. Whenever I know someone is boosting, I watch the theater of the map and upload it, and report the players for boosting. Not sure if anything is done to them though.

This, this, this. Tactical Insertions have only ever been a niche equipment in certain game modes (Demolition, Cap the Flag). I don't see why they exist at all. I also don't understand how players can talk to one another in party chat if on opposite teams. Totally ridiculous, lazing coding - just like the lag/host migration/lag comp BS. It's simply lazy coding and Activision doesn't want to pony up the money to fix certain issues. It's a shame.

Fix lag, tweak chat options, and BO2 is probably the best FPS online multiplayer game of all time.

They definitely have a place in the game. I think it's crucial to have on a couple game modes.

What they need to do is set up some kind of algorithm where if you die immediately after you spawn by the same person 3 times in a row, you get booted or lose your tactical insertion. Some kind of system that can detect boosters.

Simply removing them from the game is cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Tac Insertions have a lot of good use. There has to be a way to fix the entire system regarding boosters but I don't know the best way.

The chicom has by far been my easiest gun to get to 100 head shots. 4 matches and I jumped from 51 to 74. Although since starting I've only gotten bloodthirsty 3 times.

Also I've used tac insert boosters to my advantage. These two guys were boosting their guns by taking turns killing each other on hijacked and I would just wait at their tac insert and boost up my head shots while making them pay for cheating :p

I wish they would only put team vs team. Nothing pisses me off more than doing a random game then facing off against a team. Just asking for a slaughter that way. I hate team players who then brag about their high ass kill count because of this, nothing but cheese.

Depends on the team. The thing about team play, if they aren't excellent players, is they get very predictable and they bunch up. So if you get the jump on them , you'll take out 3 or 4 at a time.

Exactly. It's just like any other player. If you're facing a team of players that know what they're doing, it's a slaughter. If you're facing a team of idiots, it's just an all around fun game to play.

Had one of those last night on Hijacked. A clan of 3 or 4 would spend their entire time sniping from the two rooms and keeping their side "locked down". For whatever reason, they completely ignored the matinence tunnel in the ship's hull, so it was real easy to sneak up on them and get 2-3 kills before they had any clue an enemy was in the room with them.

Then they'd die, spawn on the other side...and still attempt to snipe

How about not letting tac inserts spawn within a certain distance of an enemy insert?

Seems like a pretty simple solution to me.

I haven't used tac inserts once in BO2. I used them in MW3 to complete the challenges and get the emblem. But they are useful in certain objective modes as mentioned before, so I don't think they'll be completely eliminated. I'm fine with people using it properly.

I've only seen a couple of boosters once while I was playing MP. Two easy headshots and reported them immediately after. I just don't see the appeal of getting really good scores by cheating. Where is the satisfaction. You get a freaking emblem. Congrats! I know there are probably millions of players better than me, but at least I achieved my stats honestly. And at the end of the day it's just a game.

That'd be solid, but then they could still find a way around that I'm sure. Just find to hiding spots close together, etc.

Forced to wait 10 seconds after you spawn to put down the tac insert? It'd delay the boosting a bit (though it would be counter-productive to those that actually use the TacInsert properly).

hmmmmm

Made it to round 28 on Tranzit with a buddy. Accidentally got too cocky with one of my chains and tried to run straight through it. Got hit in mid jump so i landed on the fire which slowed me down and then the zombies surrounded me in the next second.

Need 1 more player controlled KS to get the Gold Stinger launcher.

It's a bummer no one uses more dragonfires. Though I do get why. They're incredibly weak.

The lag comp is terrible.

I have to start downloading stuff just so I don't get screwed over by being host.

Go into hardcore. It's used more and a bit better for a scorestreak.
