Ill start off with what the whole assassin perk gives you (this includes pro)
-Undetectable by UAV
-Undetectable by portable radar
-Undetectable by thermal
-Undetectable by heartbheat sensors
-Immune to counter UAV's
-Immune to EMP's
-No red crosshair or name when targeted
So for 1 perk you technicallly get 7 things??? add blindeye and dead silence to this you are completely invisable!
First of all why put all these 3 perks in different slots? it just creates one overpowered class, they should have at least put them all in the same one, so it makes you chose between, being silent, keeping off radar or not being seen by killstreaks. Basicly with all of this in one create a class slot you are getting possibly about 10 - 12 different things in just 3 perks, how can this be considered balanced? Personally i feel like they should have made you chose between what it is you wanted to hide from when using assassin. For example: You chose to be immune to portable radar but everything else that is in the list can still see you, or maybe you want to be immune to EMP's but again everything else in the list can still see you. Doing this could have made the whole assassin perk thing way more balanced.
But like i said assassin pro gives you about 7 different things, so why is it other perks like quickdraw only give you 2 things like: recover from grenade usage quicker and faster aiming time or stalker Move faster while aiming and delay triggered explosives. It just seems to make no sense as to why a perk that helps people literally camp for an entire game should give them 7 different advantages from 1 perk.
Also did you know that an advanced UAV also will not show up assassin users? seriously go try it in a private match. In black ops which was based about 30 - 40 years prior to Modern warfare, the blackbird could show ghost users, but now that we are in the future and all this technology has meant to of evolved somehow an Advanced UAV wont show assassin users?
With this all in mind i am starting to consider using assassin myself as it seems to be the only way to counter other people using it. A few of you might say well just use quickdraw because you can aim faster than them, it makes no difference. If they are going to surprise attack you, you are most certainly dead unless you get lucky with the bullets. However i have always used quickdraw since the release of MW3 and i like it hence the abillity to get on target quicker. Personally myself as a player, i am quite good at staying alive and reading situations well and usually comming out on top, (on average i get about 5 deaths a game to 20 kills) but im sure if i put assassin on i could double my kills and half my deaths because no one would ever know where i am.
I really dont want to have to resort to using Assassin as apparently alot of players think it is nooby, but i really am loosing hope of going on much longer with out it.
