A lot of people on here complain about assassin but....

scotland-rules

I see many people complain on here about the well known perk assassin.

 

But the thing is you were probably the ones who complained about ghost and cold blooded all the way through the cod series from mw2 and black ops (cant remember much about cod 4) but anyway you complained about it but do you know what? they split the perk in half so now you need blind eye as well to be completely hidden and use a silencer on core to remain off of the mini map....but you still complain, why is this?

 

They have done a good job making the perk more of a balance and putting it in beside some pretty good perks like overkill quickdraw blast sheild ect. Yet some of you guys still complain.

 

So why do you hate asssassin so much?

    triiviium-

    Because their 500 spy planes cant see you.

    people should not depend on the spy planes

  • 3. Re: A lot of people on here complain about assassin but....

    They're complaining now for one reason and one reason only- people actually use the perk now. From COD4 to MW2, you rarely encountered anyone using the anti-UAV perk. That meant that if your teammate called in a UAV after 2-3 kills, you were pretty much guaranteed to know every enemy location. Some people just got spoiled and lazy because of this. Now that they removed Stopping Power, people are actually free to use other perks, which naturally means there is an increase in the stealth perk usage. This bothers the red dot chasers specifically, because now there are actually people hiding from UAV, whereas before almost nobody ever did. They could make ghost/assassin ONLY hide from UAV, and these same people would still be whining like a stuck pig that the perk is overpowered.

    Cold-blooded wasn't a problem because of two reasons. Stopping power in the same tier and Heartbeat Sensor as a counter.

     

    Ghost had counters, the Blackbird and motion sensors.

     

    Assassin needs to have decent counters. My suggestions: Advanced UAV, Marksman and Heartbeat Sensor. Move HBS immunity to another perk, like Dead Silence.

    I never knew that because i play hardcore, and you always met ghost/assassin users lol

  • 6. Re: A lot of people on here complain about assassin but....

    Assassin already has two conuters- Recon perk and recon drone.

    Blackbird was patched early on because it did say ghost was ment to block it and it was patched, so no Adv UAV. Also do you want a repeat of all the previous cods? where HBS is blocked by people moving silently, people hated that in mw2

    Neither is good enough.

     

    To be able to expose an Assassin user with Recon you need to know where he is and use up your very limited supply of explosives/flashes. And the effect only lasts 10 seconds (5 seconds if he has Dead Silence too).

     

    Recon Drone? So you earn one after 10 kills, again you need to go and find the Assassin user and manually tag him. The effect lasts until he dies and then he's hidden again. Not good enough.

     

    There needs to be some passive counters. Marksman should show the name above head even if the enemy is using Assassin Pro. Advanced UAV should show up Assassin users aswell (it only takes one Stinger to take down, so it wouldn't be op at all) and Heartbeat Sensor should counter it so you could have a constant passive counter like you did in MW2. Another perk should in turn counter HB sensor.

    Also you would find this game would go down hill if you did what you suggested, just because it does not have any reallly constant threats does not mean it is a OP perk, think a lot of assassin users dont use blind eye so there kill streaks other than UAV can kill them and if they use both then lets face it they are good enough to sneak partner it up with DS and your doing well, also DS would make assassin even better for users cause people hate HB sensors so therefore assassin users would combind blind eye and DS
