I spend the entire day at work thinking about going home and sitting down to play this amazing game.

And then reality sets in and I end up being #1 player on my team with a negative K/D and even if I stay in the same lobby, the matchmaking doesn't even bother evening things out and I end up always on the worst teams possible.

I finish #2 in total score but still, that W/L ratio is making me depressed. I can't imagine anyone has as much bad luck as me. Like holy ****, how hard can it be to spread the top scorers out?

If you play Mercenary like I do you really see how bad the match making is. Probably 9 of 10 games I play are just complete lopsided blowouts.

That's how it seems it is in almost any mode as well..

I play a lot of kill confirmed in Hardcore and it always ends with the score 100 to 70 or so

What's with all the hate on the M27? That's easily my best gun. If I'm not doing well, I just switch to my gold M27 and then all of a sudden I'm back on track.

It's really challenging at first since its not my style to be a sniper, but once you get the hang of it, it's fairly enjoyable.
It's the only sniper I've used. It's almost always a one hit kill above the waist so that is why I've never touched the others. The only downside is that if you miss your first shot though you are in trouble as it's slow between shots.

Yup.

That riffle with a KAP-40 pistol / bouncing betty / shock charge is a pretty good setup.

Its also annoying when you miss your shot low and you hit the guy in the legs. Usually they start running away because they have taken damage. Would rather miss completely than hit a guy low

It's not a great gun for core, i'm currently using it. It's an MTAR with worse range and less stopping power for a small trade in the accuracy department.

The gun is an absolute treat in Hardcore though.

SERIOUSLY!!!!

Why even play Zombies if you don't have a mic? It is so crucial to have one.

I have come to the conclusion that I just won't play with someone who sounds like a little kid.

Not since I started playing strictly HC. I can't stand playing core anymore it seems. I always stop shooting and the guy is alive still. Plus I am used to SMGs on HC and forget to use ARs on core.

I am slowly getting better. I have some CTF games of 20k40d and some of like 30k5d. I tend to kill it on the new maps, meltdown and standoff

It is so accurate and has so little recoil, I love those attributes but it has no stopping power. I get so weary of dumping half a clip into someone and having him turn around and blast me.

My "back on track" gun is the FAL with the selector switch. When I'm having a tough time I go to that and I'm laughing.

Is it just me or do shotguns seem to be the least affected by lag? If I have a 3 bar, my smg's seem to suck. Switch it to a shotty and I get right back on track

I still struggle with the Remmington in laggy games.

A one shot kill turns into 2 or 3 shot kills or me dying.

The remaining shotguns on the other hand ... thats a different story.

I started playing FFA the other day and I think I'll be sticking with that for a while. No lag AT ALL in that mode (for me at least).

They usually have been the least effected.

I mean, they're effected the same as any weapon, but a single spread shot does wonders when they guy is bouncing around.

Now try the KSG in a laggy environment, you'll go back running to the smg is no time.

Since I've diamonded my shotty's, i've been thinking of a next class of weapons to work on. Thinking LMG's. I have the first one gold, the others just don't excite me as much as the first.

Another weapon that's beastly in laggy games is a Scorpion with Rapid Fire.

You only get one kill before you have to reload but with fast mags you can reload easily.

It's like hot knife through butter.

I had a game last night on Slums where the opposing team were all snipers. I got 3 Bloodthirsty just mowing down the snipers hanging out in the usual spots. They all rage quit and the game broke

The Hamr is one of my favorite LMGs

Starting to get bored with the current maps. I like what I see from the new DLC content and looking forward to it.

I tried the hail mary challenge tonight and got a long shot medal kill with the axe but the hail mary didn't unlock. WTF? It was basically a C to A throw on Hydro domination.

The last shotgun, whatever the hell it's called, is such a pain. It makes me want to give up on diamond shotguns altogether.

Had one of those "My God my team sucks" kinda games in TDM last night. I finished 23-4 in a losing cause.

I have started using the Shock Charge just for the lulz. It induces rage combined with a Betty. I love hearing the charge go off and then seeing a +100.
