Well two hours into it and I'm at 30%. I do have a pretty slow internet connection so that's why.

I started downloading this am when I first woke up. 20 mins later I was at 30% so just left it on with a timer for 1 hour. So hopefully it'll be done when I get home from work.

This frightens me...

I'm only going to be able to play from like 330-6 today so I'm hoping I can download and at least get some game time in, but that doesn't look too likely I guess...

Yep, it's basically two buildings from what I can tell. Perks are riding in the elevators. Build this purple goo gun early on which makes everything slippery.

Grind is crazy-small, B flag in Domination is literally one sprint-cycle past A/C

Mirage is small-ish, Downhill and Hydro seem relatively mid-sized

and holy crap the Peacemaker is nice, got SMG firerate with AR power.

I got up for work, turned on the xbox and started the download this morning and left. No idea how long it took but I was home 5 hours after and my xbox was off and the package was downloaded.

My favorite right now is Grind for capture the flag. Mirage is cool too. Haven't played the water level yet and played the ski resort once but was put in at the end of the game and the team was getting destroyed so wasn't much to learn when I was getting spawn killed already. Maps out less than a day and people spawn killing already, ugh

My download went shockingly fast, like, done in 20 minutes or less fast. It was insane, go internet!

Really like the peackeeper. But get this ****, I figured today would be a great day to work on backfire medals AND not lose any progress with the peacekeeper due to the fact that everyone is using it, genius, right? Wrong. Every time I killed an enemy today, and I mean EVERY time, I would pick up their gun if it was a peacekeeper. I would kill one or two, or none, after that, and back to square 1 where I would kill and pick up.

Guess how many backfire medals I got today?

Spoiler alert: 0

I want that humiliation card so bad!

So, after 1 about 1.5 hour session with the peacekeeper I'm at 173 kills, with 33 headshots and a 1.66 K/D ratio. Not bad.

What the hell was the deal with those backfires though?

I would guess that the backfire is caused by the fact that people don't have the download so they don't get awards related to that gun right now? So even though you have the DL, you don't get the awards as there are none associated with that weapon.

Just a guess on my part

Having watched a lot of Die Rise game play I'm VERY excited to play it. Looks much better than Green Run.

AN-94 on the wall (50/600 pack-a-punched)
PDW on the wall
Badass new wonderweapon
Beautiful map design
Actual challenging locations
Might actually be the first zombies map to ever scare me.
Overall this map just seems very awesome.

Tranzit on it's own seems like a disappointment, but just one DLC in and Black ops 2 zombies seems like an incredible package. Survival Green Run/Town/Farm/Bus Depot + Grief+Nuketown Zombies+Die Rise and I already have more awesome options than I know what to do with. February 28th (allegedly when Revolution is out for PS3) can't come soon enough.

Any mod-sized large maps?

You know, ones that aren't an SMG ***** fest?

Were you running a secondary weapon and did you swap your secondary out with their weapon? I'm pretty sure that's what you have to do. I was having trouble too with not getting backfire medals. Finally finished the challenge last night.

Peacekeeper is OP. There's a reason they covertly nerfed all SMGs last minute.

Mirage is a good map.

New Zombies is fun.

I totally forgot about the DLC pack until I was playing a Domination game and picked up a Peacekeeper.


I found what may be my best AR class.

M27 (Hybrid Scope & Extended Mags)
No secondary
Flak Jacket
Scavenger
Extreme Conditioning & Dead Silence (+ Perk 3 Greed)
Semtex & EMP Grenade


I never tried the Hybrid Scope until this weekend when I wanted some quick XP unlocking the reticles. It's fantastic.

Apparently starting February 1st at 10am PST until February 4th at 10am PST they are having double weapon xp weekend. Not sure if it's for PS3.

Downloading the map pack . Hopefully its good . Didn't purchase the season pass , since there's usually one or 2 packs I don't like.

Took me 16 mins to download. Not bad

I'd wish they'd include more maps that were big like Wasteland or the big snow one in MW2
