Been loving my MA81 and Tac-45 combo. One burst round can take out guys at long range, and it doesn't have a big recoil. Easily my favorite assault rifle.
I think its the matchmaking they do. I'll get in and get a few 25-13 rounds, then go to 13-17, and last night had a couple 6-20. Very frustrating. Just when I think I can be close to 1.0, I get destroyed.

Without Perks is definitely annoying (especially without Toughness), but I rather do them together and get it over with. I can get 150 kills in 4-10 games (depending on my form that particular day). But those are the easiest to do.

And it's always that last challenge that you need to complete that takes ages to get. It can be that last Bloodthirsty medal (when before those challenges were unlocked you were getting it pretty much every game) or Long shots for AR's.

There's a youtuber who posted 4 hours of gameplay proving that the Grip attachment only effects 3 guns. It's more of a 'placebo effect' than anything.

I've never watched it, but I'm just pointing out that it exists.

My buddy swears by the foregrip, while I find more use using quickdraw.

none of the AR's have recoil that isn't easily manageable.

Foregrips are probably only necessary for me on LMG's.

solo demolition is too damn hard!

Worst loss today: 31 kills, 24 deaths, 4 plants

Most satisfying win: 43 kills, 26 deaths, 1 plant, 5 defuses

I'm on tier 3 of all the demo master challenges, but still probably going to be a while before I can grab that card. Going to finish up hardpoint after that because I'm somewhat close. Then I think I'm gonna go for CTF because most of those badges look pretty good. Haven't played a single second of CTF in this game though.

Which is actually strange, now that I think of it. Does CTF not come up in chaos moshpit or nuketown24/7 when that's available? Because I've played both of those playlists a lot, and I've never seen CTF come up.

Just a suggestion, if you're going to do CTF, try it on Hardcore. I didn't like Core CTF, but since I started HC CTF, I haven't really been playing any other game mode.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll definitely try both.

Recoil issues only affect players who attempt to overcorrect. A lot of players grip their controllers far too tightly which results in joystick mashing and overcorrection. Recoil is manageable at almost every distance with every gun as long as you're conscious of how much you're trying to "force" overcorrection and you're not white knuckling your controller.

Same, man. Exact same. I play well and then just fall apart out of nowhere. I never even know what I'm doing wrong.

Anyone have any advice? I seem to ALWAYS just get shot first and never see these people coming at me. MY aim needs work too.

Placebo or not the fore grip helps me so I will continue to rock it.

I am inconsistent but it is tough when you don't know anyone that you play with. I am always the random that comes in

quickdraw just helps you ADS faster, it's not as great for shottys as for other guns. you're much better off using things like suppressor, laser, long barrel, etc...

FINALLY decided to try the Fal the last couple nights.

It really is a great gun if you're an accurate shooter. If you're more of a sprayer, not so much. You can basically snipe with it on Turbine, which I did a couple times last night. Right now I am using RDS and Quickdraw but my plan is to try the Select Fire to go full auto and see what all the hype is about.

I'm kinda salivating at the chance to go Stock, Select Fire and Extended Clip. Could be beastly.

The only argument towards that is for the KSG. While I normally run Long Barrel and Laser sight on all shotty's, the KSG is most effective when ADS'ing.

Quickdraw can help with this quite a bit.

Though, If you're in that much of a panic to ADS, hip shotting will probably be just as effective.

Activision's customer support is really pissing me off.

My case says Nuketown 2025 included

No code was included.

I paid for the game and didn't get the code. I should be given a code for it, yes?

They are refusing to do so

KSG isn't really a shotgun though, its more of a semi-auto rifle

curious, Are you good at talking to customer service on the phone?
Stay calm, explain to them early in the convo that you are upset with the product, not the person. Tell them the issue. If they say they can not help, ask to speak to someone else.

No chance this is the first time it has happened, and I'm sure CS knows about it. They are probably informed to tell people they cant help.

If you didnt get it, its false advertising, which is illegal. I'm sure they wouldnt want to deal with a class action lawsuit in this situation (dont threaten).

I believe it was one of the Mass Effect (could be wrong) games that had a class action brought against them for false adertising... soon after it went public, the suit was dropped...
