Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

WKMMS

It used to be that I just picked up a gun I liked, added in a set of perks I thought would best serve my needs, maybe throw in some equipment, nades etc and go merrily on my way to try and kill everyone that had a red name over their head, in any way possible.  It's only since reading through many of the discussions on this very forum that I have come to learn that some of the tactics I have used, not always, but occasionaly, might have been less than sportsman-like, according to the unwritten laws of MW3 gaming conduct.  With that in mind, I would therefore be very grateful to anyone who could advise me on a class set up and play-style that would meet with the approval of the unofficial CoD ethics police that seem to patrol these forums and seem to vehemently shoot down (pardon the pun) any and all play-styles but their own (though never actually owning up to which guns and perks they run with themselves).  I thank you in advance for your help.

    Fool around with some SMGs and go rushing.

    A good class would be:

     

    Primary: P90 Supressor & rapid fire

    Secondary: MP9 Suppressor

    Lethal: Semtex

    Special: Stun Nades

     

    1st perk: Ext conditioning Or SOH pro

    2nd perk: Quickdraw Pro

    3rd perk: Steady Aim Pro

    Kill streaks: Specialist:

    1st perk: Dead silence

    2nd perk: assasin

    3rd perk: Scavenger

    Play a gametype like domination and run around flanking the enemy's spawn.

    It's pretty enjoyable

      I don't know... that sounds like something I could get in trouble for... I mean Steady Aim and a P90 with rapid fire... I could be very tempted to hip fire that... and the suppressor would mean the other enemies wouldn't know where I was... doesn't seem very fair... as for Assassin and Dead Silence... gosh, I could be very tempted to sneak around knifing people in the back and surely that's ungentlemanly conduct?

    as a rule of thumb, any gun you use that kills someone is a no0b gun or over powered,

    using any equipment in the game if it kills someone is a wrong,

    moving is wrong

    whereas standing still is equally wrong,

    using the minimap is wrong

    using any perk at all is wrong

    using a perk that stop people following you on the mini map is very wrong

    sniping is wrong regardless of if you qs or hardscope

    using any shotgun is wrong

    where any ar is fine as long as it doesnt kill someone or you aim with it

    all secondaries are wrong

    using any machine pistol in akimbo mode is wrong

    using any machine pistol without akimbo is wrong and makes you a no0b

    claymores, bettys, nades, c4 , or anything that makes a bang is wrong

      Anyone making a legitimate response to this thread is just...Wro...DUMB!

      hmmmm.... how about if I just stand out in the open and ask people politely to lay down their armaments and enter a peaceful discussion so we can end all this senseless bloodshed... CoD -> Call of Diplomacy??

          Pacifists have no place in COD.

           

          hehehehe

    Playing the objective while using th support streak will make you cheap.

    Playing the objective while using the support streak will make you a tryhard.

    Not playing the objective while using any streak will make you a camper.

  • Re: Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

    Well...  If you want to ensure that no one has a problem with your class setup and playstyle theis is the class for you:

     

    -Dragnov with stability and variable zoom

    -USP with ext. mags

    -Throwing knif... wait, since infected throwing knives are no longer acceptable

    -Radar Scrambler

    -Recon

    -Blast Shield

    -Sitrep

    -Assault Strike package:

         UAV

         Precision Airstrike

         Osprey gunner

    -Juiced death streak

     

    For a playstyle to go with this class, walk slowly around the map, but not too slowly, or youd be camping, and move generally towards the objective.  Make sure to zoom in on targets for at least 1 to 2 seconds before firing, and fire only one shot at the time, or youll be a spammer and quickscoper, and that would be immoral.  Never aim for the head, as this is a one shot kill, and therefore cheap.  Also, if you somehow get your precision airstrike, make sure you dont use it while your UAV is up, because it would be unfair to know where enemies are if you are using an airstrike on them.  Finally, whatever you do, make sure you dont ever win.  Everyone knows that the only way to win at MW3 is to cheat.

     

    This class set up should keep you out of trouble with the MW3 ethical police.

    If you're talking about unsporting conduct, then not following the rules or the spirit of the game type would be considered unsporting.  For example, not capping bases, allowing the enemy to cap the base when you could have stopped them, not collecting tags, allowing the enemy to collect tags when you could have stopped them, not playing the objective, etc...Those are all less than honorable ways of playing.

  • Re: Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

    For the ultimate in non noobliness, I would use the following class.

     

    Type 95- HB sensor, rapid fire

    FMG9- Akimbo

     

    Any lethal

    Portable Radar or stuns/flashes

     

    SOH pro

    Assassin pro

    Steady aim pro

     

    Support package

    UAV

    Stealth Bomber

    EMP

     

    Final stand/DMH

    Lol, OP nice one! =P To anybody who actually wants a serious answer, though, maybe read this, as it is actually an interesting issue.

     

    An important thing to note here is that you shouldn't pay too much attention to any negativity you may receive as a result of your playstyle/load-out choice/whatever. The main reason for this is because no matter how you play/what you do, somebody somewhere will dislike it and chuck an insult in your direction, misguided and inaccurate as it may be. For example, sometimes I get called a try-hard for capturing/defending objectives and racking up lots of kills... I just don't let it bother me. It is impossible to play in a a way that pleases everybody.

     

    At the end of the day, the game is for enjoyment, so do whatever is required for you to have fun. As long as it doesn't involve sitting in random corners for extended periods of time/ignoring the objective, it's ok in my books. Getting 'tubed may annoy me, but I don't think I have the right to tell that person to play in a different way, as they are fulfilling a purpose of sorts. For example, they may defend objectives using them or whatever. Only thing I cannot stand is corner camping in random spots as it greatly reduces the pace of the game and rarely aids the team effort.

    We really need a sacasm font;(

  • Re: Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

    You're suppose to run around like an idiot with your head on fire and let the other team win. No strategy is allowed at any time. You cannot stop for more then 2 seconds, otherwise it's camping. You're not allowed to hold down an area. You're not allowed to use a type 95, scar, acr or any other gun that shoots bullets. You have to take down enemy air assests with sniper rifles. You cannot have a high K/D (mine is 1.81 and I only play HTDM). If you do have one you're clearly a cheater. Skill is just crazy talk.

     

    The most important thing is to always remember; you're suppose to make the other team feel better about themselves.

  • Re: Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

    Yeah, get 12 of your mates and dress up in some army attire, "easy to aquire". Then go to your nearest corner shop, "about the size of these maps" and be quick about hiding behind one of the boxes containing quavers. Now you could just sit there all day waiting for one of your buddies to pop his head up from behind the counter containing fanta or you could run in the middle of the shop and spin around whislt spraying completely avoiding any tags along the way.

     

    This is not a dig at you m8.

    • Re: Can anyone advise on a morally and ethically sound way to play MW3?

      Lmao, but on a serious note, i've long learned not to play fair against people in this community. No one else does except for that one dude out of 5 games.

       

      FAD and MP9 both with extended mags, C4, SoH, Assassin and Dead silence. Come the fuk at me bros.
