What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

owiseguyo

Personally I just started using it and it has improved my search gameplay 200%. I use it with the specialist strike packege with DS as my first streak perk. I do find myself crouch walking in alot of situations before I get DS but overall its finally given me the ability to play search as effectively as I had in past games(Getting 10+ kills every game). Before sitrep pro, I had maybe 5 games with over 15 kills in search. Just yesterday, I had 4.

 

In the 2 days I have used SRP, I have gotten at least 15 messages calling me bad for sound whoring and camping(when on defence). Whenever to top players in the world(Say top 10000) see that I use it, they give Sh!t for it telling me to play the game right. Is there something wrong with using this perk or are DS Users just pissed that there is something that counters their beloved silence. I know in BO, the motion sensor countered DS and in MW2 Sitrep pro also did the job. So whats the problem and is thier one?

 

Whats your take on the subject?

    I do not play S&D much but when i do i love to use this perk it gives such an advantage with my style of play.

    the game is already loud, now SRP is like sonar, doesnt matter where you are on the map you will be herd, i dont know about you but i do just fine on search with out SRP, and i think 15 kills a game is a bit much sounds like your waiting/killing more then searching im not the type for it anyway if i wana do that ill go play Dom or something, planting defusing or giving away enemy position for my team to win that is why i play search, the perk is called DS for a reason and since SRP totally nagets it what should be an appropriate conuter for SRP, people complain too much thats why stupid thing like this happen buffing or nerffing perks should be done carefully not because our little cornor camping weekend player whines about it.

     

    Peace Out

    I just have to be a tad more careful now. Its a btch when I play against a whole team using it tho. Wouldnt be near as bad but the maps are so small when your heard your position is easy to pinpoint. Really with these small maps it can be the most useful perk by far especially for teams. I will say that if I see someone do good and I know there using SR pro im not as impressed. These small maps are just to easy to sound whore. Especially with all the noobs that walk right into them and all the people that probably dont even realize SR pro lets you hear DS users now. If you dont get on these forums then you probably dont know the change occured. I mean the game wasnt like that for what 8 or 9 months lol.

  • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

    Not saying everybody is doing it but every single SRP user I have come across in S&D has done NOTHING but camp with this perk. I have YET to see somebody doing anything other than post in a corner/doorway and wait for you to fill their barrel of their gun.

     

    Maybe if I've seen at least SOME people act a little more ehh I don't know, more active I would have a better opinion of it. I don't know how many games people have stopped playing the objective just to kill everybody like TDM. But like everything else mostly in this game it just gets a laugh off.

     

    To each their own I suppose.

     

    (and yes I know it's the same as MW2 but with these maps it doesn't help any.)

      Yes, alot of the SRP users are HC campers because they have bad gun skill and tactics. But when a SRP user already has great gunskill and tactics like myself, there is no reason to camp especially on offence. Yes crouch walking becomes a habit when walking into enemy territory and when I dont have DS yet from specialist but I find thats the best and most effecient way to play/win search in MW3.

       

      In BO, the best setup to use was Ninja with a motion sensor. I thought MW3 was very unbalenced for search since there was no counter to DS like the motion sensor from BO. But now, SRP changed that and personally, I like the way it is now. I liked BO Search better but MW3 search is now almost as good.

       

      JMHO

  • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

    I'm not a fan of it. It's almost like it encourages camping as much as Assassin.

    I'm an avid Sitrep user but my Search class has always Dead Silence. Since the patch though Sitrep is king. I prefer they had designed the sound better so hear things different through surfaces. Like if someone is in a building near you, opposed to out in the open.

    I really haven't used it in Search since the update. To be honest, I really haven't played a lot of Search since the update. I play a lot of TDM and I no longer rage when the spawns swap. Now I can HEAR the spawns swapping. It's so much better now. No longer are people getting the drop on me. I'm getting the drop on them.

     

    I play by sound a lot. It's a big part of my playstyle. It has been since I started playing COD. I mght be different than most, but being able to hear everything makes me feel more secure about moving around. I'm not gonna run around full tilt but I'm not going to sit in a corner camping a claymore either. I move around using cover, trying to track and get the drop on people, etc. Then again, having not played Search in awhile, maybe things are really that bad where they call for those kinds of tactics.

    ok.. it's search and destroy...  if you are defending then why would you go out of your way to run around the map to find these cats?  Why wouldn't you wait for them to come to you?  It's not like you respawn after you get killed ... what would running out and giving the enemy a head to head fight prove?  Nothing other than you should have planned your attack a little better than being stupid when you only have one life per round.

      I've come across a lot of people playing Search with that attitude. They ***** about camping when you're on defense. I've even had teammates do it to the point I've had to mute them because I couldn't hear what was going on in the game, and I'm not going to argue tactics with some guy who is 0-5 when I'm 10-1. And yes, they carry on like that even when we are winning.

    If I know a user I'm playing against has SitRep pro and I'm playing with a group of mates then we turn their biggest strength (well what they think) into their weakness. With this update to SitRep some players have become more reliant on audio cues and pay less attention to their surroundings. As you know with and S&D games there ae certain places which are more adventagious to be in than others and when you miss direct a player by walking on one side of them but at the same time have in place someone who has crouch walked on their flank it's an easy kill as they are not focused on the flank. Use SitRep pro against the player who has it!!

    Does anyone NOT use Sitrep Pro in Search?

    • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

      ALOT of people use Dead silence. And some use marksman for snipeing.

      Nope i would rather DS and i am against SRP, if the maps were bigger fine i would use it but there not, if the ambient sound of the game was of better quality i would use it, but it is bassically impossible why should SRP users be able to here me form across the map while i have DS on, again they did not think this tru and have screwed it up properly, look at ASS pro. if you get taged you will show up on radar temporarly with recon same thing so SRP should not be able to detect DS users 100% maybe 50% maybe 25% i dont know give it a radius, the game as already loud with out it, perks i use in search BEP, QDP, DSP on specialist ASSP, SAP and HLP thats it, oh sorry one more perk Suround Sound Pro your tv settings yes they work just fine with the right adjustment No turtles Nessasary.

  • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

    It is great for not getting caught off guard while rushing and preventing people from sneaking up on you. At the same time it really promotes people to just wait and listen...even worse than before. So... I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. If you're not using Sitrep Pro in SnD now you're definitely at a disadvantage.

    only play Domination and team death match,and use sit-rep pro on all set ups apart from  when using any sun machine gun class, i love this perk for finding all those nasty little things that glow, especially those portable radars,

    imo, the pimped siterep pro was a bad idea...there already was a counter for DS - claymores, bettys...now with siterep pro, there are two counters...and in your example you can see how false it was to buff this perk...siterep ro users could detect claymores, bettys etc. and prevent from it, DS users got always trapped by them...and now, as said, with the buff, it's double gifted...prevent by claymores and detect DS-users, as DS-users again, have at the end, nearly no effect by their perk, and so i think, the buff was a fault and destroyed 'a perk'...

      I think if they just stuck with what BO's did with the motion sensor and hacker(or in this case SRP) being the only perk to not pick you up on it, then there would be no issue. You would have to choose to be silent and get picked up by motion sensors, or have loud footsteps and not be effected by equiptment.

    Sit rep pro made search so much more easier for me.

  • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

    SR pro has made SnD easier for many people. I Have heard the phrase "I love Sit Rep Pro" about 100 times over the past week or so. Honestly if I notice someone tearing up and I find out their using SR pro I think oh well no wonder they have been killing all my teamates, my team has been walking right into them unknowingly because they probably dont even know SR pro users can hear them with DS because the game wasnt like this for the first 8 months.

     

     

    Its not that I think less of a SR pro user, its that to me there will always be this stigma like "this dudes doin awesome but oh hes using SR pro". Could he have done that without SR pro? Maybe but possibly not. I might not always think this way but at least over the next month or so at least. Until it is common knowledge even for the people who dont take the game sseriously to know about the change.

      I'm constantly getting accused of hacking and modding. People are like, "how the heck did you know I was there?" "How did you get the drop on me so easily" "You've got a mod, you're hacking". To which I simpy reply, "you have loud boots". That totally confuses most, might generate some trash talking but a lot of people still have no idea that sit rep pro works differently now. After the hostility dies down I explain to them about the change in the last title update. A lot of people still won't believe you though, can't believe you can hear them even though they are running dead silence, and still think you are cheating.

      • Re: What do you guys think of Sitrep Pro in search?

        Not suprised, cheating seems to be a common excuse for people getting beat.

         

         

        Thi sdoes remind me of when I ran into one of the first people who Ive seen that could use it effectively. I got killed by this dude like 3 or 4 times in one game. I watched the killcam everytime to see what was going on but didnt pay attention to his perks. He had like 20 kills that game. Next game (I remember the map and everything, Hardat) same thing. he killed me another 3 times or so. I was starting to think wtf is going on here, maybe this dude is cheating some how. And ive really never thought that about anyone and ive played against some dudes that tear up. But it was like this dude knew what i was going to do before i did it seemed. After about the 5th time he killed me in that SnD match I finally looked at his perks and seen SR Pro and was like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lol. None the less he was still a b i t c h to deal with. After that I toke notice to SR pro users much quicker. This was the first dude I seen use it that had skill. He had like literally around 20 kills in every game in SnD.
