It's a bummer I'm away for this weekend on a work dive, I get to miss out on another double xp weekend.

Though to be fair, I'm probably going to stop at prestige 6 (currently 5). That trident and tentacles are too rad.

Trying to Gold all the SMGs, but so far I only have Gold Vector. Everything else, I still need to get 100 headshots. I have one MSMC class, and then a really powerful Overkill class with the MP7 and the Chicom, both with a Reflex sight. Then my Anti-Air/Equipment class is a silenced laser sight PDW with the Stinger missiles.

I think I have about 20 headshots with the Chicom, 45 with the MP7, 50ish with the MSMC, and somewhere around 70 with the PDW. I doubt I have any with the Skorpion since I never use it.

I really like the MP7/Chicom class for playing aggressively in Domination. I've put together a couple solo B caps where I take out 5-6 opponents during the capture, using both weapons. Pretty exciting.

Got the Hail Mary challenge earlier today. Threw a combat axe on Drone from the grassy sniper area with trees all the way across the map and hit a sniper laying on the helicopter pad. Feels good man.

Leveled up 10 times today. 3 away from 6th prestige. Golded my Remington. Easily my fastest gold. Might go for diamond shotties after all.

Just doing my first prestige.

Any combos of perks advice you guys like to run?

I am not great at all, usually around a .7 to 1.0 k/d ratio. Post some of your favorite classes for run and gun if you have any advice.

Lag was horrible tonight. So many unfair gunfight deaths. I'm hoping the next patch includes some fixes for the lag.

yeah, I just golded my Remington tonight as well. But when I started, I only needed 1 more bloodthirsty to get it so it didn't take that long. This gun was also my fastest gold gun too.

My favorite run and gun classes are

PDW

Supressor
Reflex

FHJ

Ghost+Flak Jacket
Cold Blooded
Extreme conditioning

Frag grenade

If you can get used to the PDW it's a beast of a gun. 50 rounds per clip is incredible. Multi kills galore

2
Skorpion EVO
Supressor+Extended Clip+reflex/dot sight

Ghost+Flak
Toughness
Tac Mask

Primary Gunfighter

The Skorpion is still a favorite of mine cause it's quicker kills so it's good for run and gun but if you stare down 2 or more other guys, well good luck.

3

Remington
Long Barrel+Fast mags

B23R

Ghost+Lightweight
None
Extreme conditioning+Dexterity

Combat Axe

I don't normally condone shotgun classes, but I've used it when things aren't going my way and once you figure out how to utilize a shotty, it's a beast of a class. Pull out the B23R if you need to make a more ranged kill.

excited to try out this new patch....would love to see other HFBers online today

looks like it'll be a good update, SMG nerfs, AR buffs, reductions in Select Fire and some lethal killstreaks, in theory some connection/server buffs...

Reduced range on silenced SMGs is a pretty big nerf.
