DEATH STREAKS!

sweetgehenna

Can we please get rid of them? Or at least the mini-nuke AKA Dead mans hands and final stand? I hate those and always seem to get screwed over from them. Last i check people shouldnt be rewarded for dying all the time. What do you guys think?

    Agreed. But will never happen. I just hope this rumour is true about blops 2, "no more death streaks and final stand"

    Tried to reason with one of the developers to either removing the deathstreaks, nerfing some of the deathstreaks (i.e. reduce the range of Dead Man's Nuke) or giving a no-deathstreak playlist BUT the developers refuse to do anything about it unfortunately.

     

    Guess we will have to wait for Treyarch's next COD title where I believe that we'll never have to deal with deathstreaks ever again.

      I hope this is true. If they have them they should be more like revenge for 1 dlif, juiced, hollow points, maybe the poop drop.

        Yea, I hope so too mate.

         

        I mean if Vahn has apologied for putting second chance in BLOPS & also removing deathstreaks in BLOPS, I think MW3 will be the last COD to implement rewards for dying. (unless IW continue to keep it in their COD games)

          They can keep it in their games. I actually do not even think there will be another IW after this game. I think they will pass the buck on to SH with their n0-oB asse5. I will not buy there games that is for sure. I can respect Vahn for admitting tha he just was trying to help. Yet didnt realize how negative an impact Sissy Chance wouldve had.

  • Re: DEATH STREAKS!

    i disagree with this opinion,because death streaks are useful....u have one more chance to kill your enemy when u die(afterlife kill martyr or hand)..i think that is a good tool to anyone's hand.moreover,death streaks provide good things like more speed and payback kills for a little time..to sum up,death streaks in my opinion must be in all cod games because it helps all players!!!

      So just because you got outplayed 6 times in a row, you deserve to detonate a nuke in your hand?

       

      It's not really fair on the player who's obviously outplaying you.

      Death streaks don't help me that's for sure!

       

      On the very rare occasion I get on death streaks, it's always juiced. (cos I never bother my @ss to change it as its for sh1t players)

       

      If I'm doing badly, I don't want the game to help me get a g@y kill, I want to get my revenge MYSELF without the aid of unnecessary death streaks.

       

      I hate dying by final standers and DMH. It's pretty annoying when I'm on a nice killstreak, but what infuriates me more is when I am having a bad game, I get punished even more by the fact that some noob on the other team is sitting on his ass with a pack of c4 waiting to blow me up as I innocently walk round the corner!

       

      If they won't nerf them atleast mark them as danger spots on the mini map!!!

       

      I.e for DMH a red skull and crossbones

      For final stand a large red dot would do!!!

        I remember the issues with martyrdom and how every one hated that. At least you had a warning and could move out of the way. Dead mans hands is crazy but getting taken out by someone in second chance who becomes invincible really ***** me off. Remove it from the game and allow players to learn the maps and strategy not to die 6 times on the bounce.

  • Re: DEATH STREAKS!

    as i have posted before i think you should earn the title douchebag and emblem of a douche bottle when you use dead mans hand ... i get the points of deathstreaks but i think they could of came up withsomething better .. i dont know like maybe 3 deaths in a row get a uav, 4 in a row get a ballastic vest , 5 in a row get a extra perk one that isnt one of your defaults ...6 in a row you they should just have mercy on you and kick you the f out of the game ...

    No but seriously yes i have used dead mans hand yes i thought it was funny as hell .. BUT it shouldnt be in the game .

    My personal belief is that Final/last stand will always be in COD games as long as they are produced. At least in Bops you didnt get killed as easy by last stand users as they only had a basic pistol, and you needed pro to be revived. In this game you just recover which is BS.

    The devs need the game to appeal to a big section of people, You have Pro's, average players and players who just suck at the game, and that is why i believe that deathstreaks will always be in COD, because it keeps the crappyist players happy as well.

      A guy I play alot of cod with said once that it would be a good idea to phase out death streaks while prestiging. So say once u hit prestige 2, a death streak is removed, and at prestige 4 a further death streak is removed and so on and so forth.

       

      As Someone who is prestige 10 (although not necessarily a good player) shouldn't need these death streaks to aid him / her.

       

      To counter this, better rewards would have to be given to people who do choose to prestige and  in turn lose death streaks. (such as extra weapons / camos or something)

    OK lets look at the flip side of this.

     

    You are a great player, so why do you get to earn killstreaks. You are so good you should not need a helicopter or jet to get another 10 kills you should have to use your gun.

     

    lol

      you just blew my mind mrtmb

      Isn't that what the specialist package or if you want to be more gun on gun, there's barebones. And most of the good players do use the specialist package anyway.

       

      If someone is having a good game, why should he not be rewarded by earning his/her pointstreaks by slaying & playing the objective?

        I agree. BUT, you know what? I play demo and when the choppers come up, I shoot them down, I seem to be the only one. I've been in games especially in the third round where they are spammed badly, so when I've finally taken them all down I've been killed 6 times. I now rush the final bomb throw my three gernades and shoot bullets like mad. I try to defuse the bomb and the camper is there and thankfully I get him dead lol.

         

         

        Thats only one scenario, But ya, deathstreaks or killsteaks, barebones is the solution.

    Dead Mans Hand is one of the worst ideas in CoD history. I'm not sure what idiot thought that was a plausible deathstreak...

     

    I doubt they can remove deathstreaks from MW3, as stupid as they are, I just don't see them taking them out. I have two fixes that would make them more tolerable however.

     

    Dead Mans Hand- When a person drops down with Dead Mans Hand make them have a red flashing light like the suicide bombers do in Survival Mode. The most frustrating thing about Dead Mans Hand for me is not the ridiculous range, but the fact that the split second after I drop them I cant tell if its Last Stand or Dead Mans Hand. If they added this flashing light, I could shoot them from behind cover to finsh the kill, or I could at least have a viable counter.

     

    Last Stand-  No primaries, disable shooting/knifing while in the falling animation. Very simple and self explanitory fixes

    • Re: DEATH STREAKS!

      i got a great idea for a death streak perk!!!......what happens is, if you die 4 times in a row you automaticlly get transfers to a lobby without ******* CAMPERS!!!!! N i also got an idea for the developers to reduce camping.... You automaticlly die if you stay in the same spot for more then like 3 seconds unless you r armed with a sniper rifle

  • Re: DEATH STREAKS!

    I'm fine with more bullet damage over 5 deaths. Final stand is a better deahtsteak, beyond annoying thing to vs yet it's a 4 deathstreak, thus overused. Kind of retarded IW. If there was no BS like any form of a second chance (deadman's hand is beyond unfair and final stand overused & glitchy with God mode moments) and no commando lunge (free ohks) just a swipe making knifing take stealth, this game would be 10 times better.
