Anyone have any suggestions for which Assault Rifle to use?
Honey badger, SC-2010, and MSBS are all really good. Honey badger has the integrated silencer, SC-2010 has like no recoil, and the MSBS starts with a three round burst.

I use all three regularly. Grip with a red dot/Holographic and you're good to go.

So this has probably been asked a million times but humor me here - are there going to be more gametypes for extinction added later on?

It was one of the least played game modes actually, as well as capture the flag and demolition, which were also taken out.
Still pissed about this. Demolition was by far my favorite teamplay mode.

HQ not as much, but I liked it because it forced combat in interesting places on the map, and gave a lot more emphasis on equipment usage/perks.

We're at least getting Hardpoint as a sort of HQ replacement, and Blitz is kind of a CTF replacement, but there's nothing for Demo. There's S&D/S&R, but there aren't any fast paced respawn modes with bomb sites, and that sucks a lot.

My NAT keeps changing everytime I log on to this game, sometimes is moderate and sometimes is open, the weird thing is that it doesn't matter at all, performance or lag is the same.

Anyone has this problem? Im on 360 by the way.

Starting to enjoy the multi a bit more now. Had a really great domination game last night. But still have issues with this game because man the perk system is so confusing. Haven't played a COD since COD4 but when the reviewers complained I thought they were just being stupid but no its too confusing.

I can't try out any guns because I need squad points, but then I also need squad points for more load outs, and then I need it for perks. Basically I am unable to experiment at all with the game or loadouts. And I am not that good at it right now so I guess i dont get so many squad points. It really sucks because if i buy a gun i dont like i just lost all my money cant do shit. Have to roll the dice again the next time i get enough points.

Any thoughts on the LYNX?

I think I will start using that Sniper, always liked one shot one kill weapons but Im not a camper, so I play to have fun not to have lots of kills, still I want the best sniper overall.

The spawns, sweet Jesus need the holy ghost! As big as these maps are why are dudes spawning 5yds from me?! Needs patching ASAP.
I killed a dude and maybe 2 seconds after he spawned in front of me, I killed him again, 2 seconds after that he spawned behind me and killed me, was funny though.

You don't have to camp to use the snipers. Honestly you don't even have to hold a zone or whatever the kids are calling it nowadays. It's harder to run around with a sniper but not impossible.

You need to quit and install the update.

On top of poor spawns in general, this is really hard to remedy. With map traversal being so fast and generally players being pretty spread out, it's impossible to get rid of this altogether. It's all part of the volatile, fast gameplay.

What's the best mode for levelling up?

It legit feels like I'm levelling up at about 1/3 the speed I usually do in COD

Well Ill say this, I will not buy a copy of this game until my favorite game modes are inserted back in. This is the first COD I have not bought since its inception.

I'm trying to launch multiplayer or squads on PS4, however I just get an Installing Content message with 3 hours remaining on the clock. I played a couple hours of single player, and when I started it was at the same time. Anyone else having this issue?

I'm using the $10 PS3 upgrade with disc in the drive, and a 1TB SSHD, if that's relevant at all.

Edit: I suppose it's because I have multiple games downloading, I can see in the storage settings I still have a fair few GB to go.

Demolition was definitely my favorite as well. It gave you the most XP in every game since Modern Warfare 2. I had like 2000plants and 75k kills in it in MW3 and it was also the game mode that had perfect spawns. You could never get spawnkilled in it in MW3, which I loved so it sucks playing other respawn game modes. Oh well but you have to move on and keep the game fresh with new game modes. IW did a great job with them in MW3 and the new Grind game mode that is currently on the new consoles looks like fun. I'm curious what game modes may come through playlist updates throughout the year.

Search and Rescue by far if you're good at it. Cranked if you're halfway decent.

Worth mentioning that unless you give a shit about prestiging, leveling does absolutely nothing for you except giving you 'free' perk unlocks. Everything (including perks) can be unlocked with squad points at any level, and you can earn SP by completing operations and field orders in matches.

Well looks like MP is falling way way down on Steam sure it's early morning in the EU but at this moment less then 5000 are playing. This game is just so damn shit on PC and IW not giving a crap.

Man this game's MP is awful. What happened to the amazing confrontation style, head to head MP maps? This is just a set of random corridors everywhere and people spawning randomly and just getting killed with a shot or two. Its... AWFUL. Worst COD MP by a mile.

I clearly remember being one of the first 300 in the Modern Warefare Beta... that was a blast. Overgrown was the map. MW came out and I lost 100s of hours to it. Crash? My favorite map. World at War came out and it was definitely weaker, but I still dug it. Modern Warfare 2 started the IW downfall and I mostly found the MP atrocious. I didn't dig Black Ops too much. Modern Warfare 3 did a few things right and I had fun, and finally came Black Ops 2 which became my favorite MP COD since MW1.

Now Ghosts just fucked it all. I am starting to think Treyarch is the vastly superior team now. So, so disappointed =/. Its the Maps... the maps are a clusterfuck.

The worst thing about the spawns is in domination. It is not uncommon to have an enemy spawn on your capture point even though the enemy team owns the other two. That makes sense. Or if you're controlling two, instead of keeping the enemy locked down, they'll start spawning at one of your controlled points even if you have like 4 teammates currently standing at that very point. Ridiculous.

This has been a problem with COD games for years now, on 360. Never seemed to matter all that much though.

Can someone here who bought Ghosts for the PS4 on day 1 tell me what the numbers were day one?
It's averaging 35,000 at peak hours.

Return. Get KZ if you don't already have it and download Blacklight... i'm glad i did. Blacklight plays like an even faster more PC-like COD. And KZ is... well... epic.

As someone who has played from COD4 up until now, this is probably the worst multiplayer experience I ever had. Mainly playing as a rusher, all these maps seem to cater to anyone with silencers and campers who just sit there all day. Maps are way too huge for a 6v6 match and everything looks the same. The atmosphere of every map is just sad and depressing. Whoever had the idea of weapons with a built in silencer should be fired. Just promotes more camping.

Perks seems like they do nothing. Quickdraw and ready up seem completely worthless compared to MW2, or Black Ops 2. I literally can't enjoy my playstyle because these perks have been reduced to nothing.

Im alright with the fact that the tactical insertion is gone but the spawns... This game has the worst spawns compared to any other game. Why do I spawn near them? Why do I spawn behind them? Why do they spawn behind me?

Im not gonna complain about the connection but I feel they pick the worst host...

It's disappointing that alot of the game modes are down. I was a big fan of headquarters since you could rarely camp and it was just an ongoing head to head combat in the entire match.

That leaning,sliding, and the "hand over the obstacle you are jumping" seem useless and annoying.

SAT COMS are probably the most worthless alternative to a UAV. Why is it ground based? Who makes these decisions? Why isn't there a counter SAT COM/UAV?

Im ready to drop this game but I still feel there's hope of it getting better.

Gaf needs to step it's game up

Ranger and I be killin it!
Ha I saw our clan ratio is like 0.62, as well as a 1w/l and was wondering how. I still have your k/d beat in TDM xP and am chasing down your all-time one!

...although it's really difficult to maintain the tdm one, cause 1 bad game drops it significantly.

Been playing this and I really enjoy the MP. I totally suck at it but it still fun. Ive been using a Remmington and it seems really good. It reloads amazingly fast.

Yay, I'm in the third place!
What loadout do you use?
And what playstyle? Actively running around or picking people from distance?
My K\D was about 3.25 in BO2, and I moved a lot around the map, but in Ghosts I'm almost forced to camp to stay alive.

You can't run around like an mindless rusher, but you can play aggressively. Use SitRep to identify where people are likely camping near IEDs. Use stuns to approach building. Try Recon, so you know where they are in the room if you stun them. There are tons of ways to get into each location, and someone just camping a window or ledge will get shot in the back if they don't play smart.

Some of the multiple entrances/exits plus Amplify do penalize movement, so you will probably see more corner camping in this game, though. For people that are afraid to move, you will see corner camping. I agree corner camping is very bad, but most players don't do this. Probably because it's just not fun.

It's still possible to run around and you just have to play more tactically. With the huge maps, part of the challenge to rush is actually penetrating the zone that is being protected (unless you just spawn there[...]). That's not a bad thing. Not every CoD has to appeal to the SMG/akimbo machine pistol crowd. This is a different game.

Perks seems like they do nothing. Quickdraw and ready up seem completely worthless compared to MW2, or Black Ops 2. I literally can't enjoy my playstyle because these perks have been reduced to nothing.
The perks have been tested and they have an effect.

Im alright with the fact that the tactical insertion is gone but the spawns... This game has the worst spawns compared to any other game. Why do I spawn near them? Why do I spawn behind them? Why do they spawn behind me?
Agreed, the spawns are awful. There's no sense to them on large maps.

SAT COMS are probably the most worthless alternative to a UAV. Why is it ground based? Who makes these decisions? Why isn't there a counter SAT COM/UAV?
Why not have them ground-based? Why does it have to be like it was before?

The SatComs are both nerfed and buffed. By being ground-based, they're way harder to shoot down from the sky. Of course, by needing two of them for a good sweep, it requires teamwork (or at least wait until your teammate puts one down).

There are perks that counter SatComs (Off The Grid) and use your opponent's SatComs to your advantage (WireTap). There's also a Counter SatCom that destroys all enemy ground equipment called Ground Jammer in the Support Package.

Just because it's different doesn't make it worse.

Do they really need to? This happens every year and every year the spawns get fixed after about a month or so. It's amazing what short memories people have around here.

I'm actually sort of happy that the spawns are the worst thing about this game because they are so fixable.

So I tried messing around with the app on my phone. Afterwards, I no longer can select a clan tag (GAF included). It says I am not in a clan, yet I have accepted three invites. I asked one of the other clans to reinvite me, but it told him I was already on the team. What the fuck?
