On the 360, I've only been killed by an underslung grenade launcher maybe three times that I can recall. From what I've seen, very few people are using them since grenades in general have taken a nerfing.

As far as pistols are concerned, they seem to be too weak according to my gameplay experiences. I've been riddled with dozens of pistol shots, it seems, without being killed and I've dumped my fair share of ammo in to targets who don't seem the least bit fazed by .45 caliber rounds which do little more than tickle. They simply aren't reliable sidearms, for the most part. And this is a Black Ops thread. Unless otherwise stated, Stella, I refer to that game in particular.

Perhaps you would like to indulge in how multiplayer is 'dumb'? I don't entirely mean to be condescending, but elaborating any flaws you have experienced are good for discussion.

The amount of entertainment you get from multiplayer.. I had 15days on MW2; working out to paying about 0.02 an hour, probably less - Well worth the money.

Multiplayer isn't dumb either; MW2 is one of the best selling games of all time.. Not for the shitty 4hour (On veteran) campaign, or the dumb special ops.. But the multiplayer.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, when i said dumb i was being sarcastic. I meant it would be dumb to pay $60 just to play multi-player.
So do they do that on purpose? Make a game thats not really good and so u are basically paying for just the multi-player?
And now the price for xbox live is more expensive, so that seems to me to be a lot of money for multiplayer black ops. Especially since I dont have much time to play every day.

First off, I like the game so far. Yes it has some flaws at the moment with low framerate and stuttering being the worst on pc but I do think that it is still a good game. The killstreaks aren't nearly as brutal for the most part, the guns are decent with the exception of the sniper rifles (which I think is really a map problem more than a gun problem), the graphics are decent and certainly not the horrible mess people are going on about, and it is generally quite a blast to play.


BTW, since I am not a console player I have to ask: wtf is quick and hard scoping???

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Hard-scoping is standard sniping. Quick-scoping is where you get a player in the centre of the cross-hair - then you aim in and shoot in a quick manoeuvre, thus quickly-scoping them; It's a way for snipers to deal with UMPfags rushing us.

For example, we can be hard-scoping players trying to plant a bomb, then a UMPfag runs round the corner in an attempt to rush us; and we follow suit to quick-scope them.

UMPfags hate us QuickscopeFags because we stop me being able to rush snipers.

Except quickscopers do it to everyone. There was a perk that would pretty much auto target someone the second you went into scope and the sniper rifle would just one shot them with very little aiming. They'd to it to everyone even across maps, it took little skill.
