  • 195. Re: Petition to buff AA-12: More reserve ammo

    I tried using support with the AA12 and its painful. SPecialist is your best choice, but i use that on pretty much every gun, i sometimes use uav ballistic vest combo though, vests are my fav killstreak of all time!

    Geez that's awful. The AA-12 really does have almost everything going against it.

     

    -It has low starting ammo
    -Its spread is huge compared to other shotguns

    -Has the lowest damage of all the shotguns (a bare AA-12 needs 7 of 8 pellets to land to get a OHK in max damage range. Good luck with that considering its spread.)
    -Has the least range

     

    It's ROF advantage can barely be considered one as the Striker can almost match it while being better in pretty much every way.

    Wait a second.  Sorry to call you out, but did one of the forum moderators say the AA12 should NOT be buffed, because it's "fully automatic"?

     

    No offense, but if that's true, that's a stupid response.

    So in one thread you're bragging about how you massacre people and get 50 MOABS with the AA-12, and in another thread you wanna buff it? There are holes here.

  • 199. Re: Petition to buff AA-12: More reserve ammo

    I wouldn't mind a buff. I don't use it in multiplayer, but I tried it on Survival Mode (where all the guns are their multiplayer versions) and the low reserve ammo made it almost pointless if you weren't camping at the weapon armoury.

    I'm dead serious RS, I should go and try finding GHANDI's quote before it gets lost in the 100's of pages of discussion in that thread. It made my jaw hit the floor.

     

    Wait a second, I just re-read your post... Are you calling me stupid or IW's "weapon balance" team stupid?

    @Vileself, you have to remember this one thing, the AA-12 was a steam roller in the right hands with extended mags and the either the last two profficiencies, but since that patch on the 24th, the AA-12 took some getting used to, because performance wise, it took a dramatic dive for the worse, it wasn't as powerful. That is something I've come to accept. I guess one way to look at it is, if I played my clone from mid-December/January, and we were both given "post patch" AA-12's, I would surely beat him.

     

    You know that saying, "everything happens for a reason"? Well, its as if the AA-12 was indirectly nerfed so that I could get better with it, and in turn make myself better. No one can argue the point that the AA-12's prowess was immensly reduced since that patch. I was almost ready to give up on it, but instead I hung in there and vowed to become exceptional with it. If you look at how the petition, and not just "for me" but on behalf of everyone using the AA-12 has gone from a "rage buff" to a very reasonable and fair buff: more ammo, that's it and there ain't nothing wrong with that. More reserve ammo won't make the AA-12 "OP" or "easier to use" like some believe, it just gives it longevity for the average player. As a matter of fact, no gun should require a perk to get more than a few kills.

     

    Anywhore, thats what I think IW should do, just give the AA-12 some more ammo, especially since IW themselves think its fine as is. It shouldn't be a weapon you just pick up and start owning with like most other guns with out any prior experience. I believe it SHOULD sort of suck, so you have to devote time and effort in to becoming a powerhouse with it.

     

     

     

    Also, I don't have 50 moabs with the AA-12, I wish I did though . Everyone has bad games, and we don't win them all, but I wasn't bragging, at least I wasn't trying to. I think "capinyou" is bragging in his thread, and I hope I wasn't doing that. Sorry if thats how my threads come off to you. I just remembered this: If "I" do good with a weapon, the AA-12 in this case, that doesn't automatically mean its overpowered or balanced. In fact it's quite the contrary, if I was one of the worst, and I had the stats I do with this gun, it might actually be becuase its cheap or overpowered, but the AA-12 is seriously anything but.

     

    I just realized I'm going to have to edit my original post... again... I'm not even mad, I'm impressed.

    Its ok, he was calling the balance team stupid (who wouldnt?).

    Ok cool. Hey whats this I hear about the "Actual" IW staff being replaced or fired over the years and supposedly thats why MW3 sucks? Is that true? I don't know how to do their job but you know they don't seem to be the sharpest tools in the box.

  • 204. Re: Petition to buff AA-12: More reserve ammo

    I have no idea what has been happening behind the scenes at IW, if anyone else knows I would be pleased if you could fill us in. All I know is that Activision screwed IW over a lot.
