Assassin

Steve2589

Why is everyone worried about Assassin so much? It's effectively the same as Ghost in Black Ops and I wouldn't have called that overpowered at all. I probably won't be running a UAV in my killstreak setup anyway so it doesn't bother me that much

  • Re: Assassin

    Its different from ghost technically, its pro version is the same but you cant hide from killstreaks (which blind eye does).

     

    Its the perfect perk for flanking campers

      It hides from UAV, Thermal Sensors etc but not helicopters and stuff

      Campers stay in one spot, and wait for the enemy to come into their view.

       

      Flankers run in the opposite direction as their teammates with the hope of catching the enemy by surprise from the rear, or the side of the main conflict.

       

      Both of these people will likely use assassin, but they are definitely different tactics.

    Assassin isn't Ghost unless you pair it with Blind Eye.

  • Re: Assassin

    I honestly think that they've done a good job of balancing the game, and leading you to need to take up 2 perk slots if you want to be truly invincible, and when you do that, you miss out on perks that give u better abilites for killing, as opposed to invicibility. We'll just have to see how people use these when the game finally releases tomorrow/later today

  • Re: Assassin

    Some people are claiming it will be overpowered. They are also claiming how plentiful UAVs, Counter UAVs, and Advanced UAVs will be because of the Support Strike Package. If Assassin didn't hide you from those point streaks, then they would all be vastly overpowered. Assassin serves its purpose.

      Awesome bro.

      I'm not going to say Assassin Pro is overpowered, but I will say it's the must-have 2nd slot perk. I'm one of those that believes CUAV will be spammed because the Support Strike Package doesn't reset after a death.

      I'll tell you right now, when someone hits my minimap with a CUAV it really slows me down and it messes with my flow; knowing where my teammates are is crucial.

        I think I'll basically only use Assault Tier Killstreaks > I do not care about red dots or cuav, pred, pavelow and Jugg it is for me. If you find assassin Pro, OP use it yourself. I will when needed especially against a good clan.

          Yup, I'm definitely going to use the Assassin Pro perk; it's a must-have. I plan on using the Support Package until the Specialist Package opens up and then I'll see how it goes with the extra perks.

    assassin is pretty much UAV jammer from cod 4 with a little bit more things added

  • Re: Assassin

    This is a good example of situation irony: people complaining about something in a game that isn't officially released yet.

     

    I feel it will be balanced, and with a sniper i'm going to use quick-draw. LMG gets blast shield....et cetera.

    • Re: Assassin

      Some YT commentator who got MW3 a couple of days ago was saying that in the hands of an experienced sniper, that sniper/quick-draw will be pretty-much unstoppable. He said that it might be more fair if they take quick-draw away from snipers.

       

      I'm not a sniper fan, but if this is true, I might be forced to check it out. I guess we'll all find out soon enough.

        Sniper + Quick-Draw = Unstoppable?

         

         

        Doesn't work out right, sorry. It's not an unstoppable combination. A truly unstoppable combination would be Assualt Juggernaut + God mode, which won't be happening anytime soon.

        • Re: Assassin

          Really? You felt the need to throw in your pitiful comment about God mode and not bring anything to the table? hahaha! What a douche.

          • Re: Assassin

            There's nothing to bring to the table because there's no indefinitely unstoppable class. God mode isn't happening, so clearly it was meant as a sarcastic remark. And thank you, since I have clearly made you upset in telling you that Quick Draw and Sniper Rifles won't be the most effective combination.

            • Re: Assassin
              r8edtripx

              When I said unstoppable class, I obviously didn't mean literally unstoppable as in what God Mode would be, where no harm can come to the player. Really? I'm not sure if you're serious. You can't be this stupid. Are you really not understanding the jist of this convo?

               

              I'm not a sniper fan, so I would actually love to hear that the YT commentator I was talking about was completely wrong and that Sniper/Quickdraw turns out to be rather weak.

                I'm getting that you don't think this class would be on par with God Mode. I just decided to input a self-humoring comment about Juggernaut Gods. And I'm sure all of us would love to see Sniper/Quick Draw as a pointless combination, as I'm fairly confident it will be.

    Campers will be campers. That's really all there is to it.
