i also notice no difference since the patch. they still instantly kill and at least 1/3 of all players are still using them. i don't think treyarch understood the problem; the whole playing community hasn't been whining since day one because the akimbos were just 1% overpowered. a miniscule tweak isn't going to do it.
pretty much every clan i see uses them. if you're serious enough to organize and play together then you're probably serious enough to abuse akimbos to get the most kills possible. i back out any time i see a clan just because i know it's going to be nothing but FMG's and non stop stun grenades the whole time.
I normally back out as well. If not for akimbos then for hacking. I have never played against a clan that wasn't hacking and most are hacking on top of using akimbo. Granted I haven't played a ton of clans, but everyone I've been against was hacking. It got a lot better after the last patch of course, but they are starting to trickle back in now.
Still OP and now they are apparenlty customizable. I picked up an akimb FMG9 custom tonight. As if they weren't bad enough before.
that's a glitch/exploit, one that's pretty easy to do at that. i wonder how bad the FMGs would really be if people were forced to take off damage or whatever other proficiencies and attachments they've cheated onto their guns. odds are if someone's using akimbos they're a cheating d*****bag anyway, so it wouldn't surprise me if most fmg users had glitched attachments.
