VESTS ARE BROKEN!!!

Big_FN_Target

Please, can someone explain this to me...

________________________________________________________________________________ __________

 

I get 5 kills, I throw down a vest, and I grab one.

 

I run a few meters and suddenly I encounter an enemy!

 

I try to get a bead on him, but he is already aiming at me when I turned the corner... crap!

 

He points his reticle at my head and I think "Dang, I'm a dead man"... He pulls the trigger and BAM his 7,62 NATO round leaves his muzzle and strikes me in the face at full velocity from several yards away...

 

BUT WHAT'S THIS!!! My vest, the thing that I put over my body to protect my vital organs, has somehow stopped this absolutely beautiful shot to my face and I am still standing! I take this opportunity to line up my shot and unload a on him, making him regret only take one shot at my face instead of the necessary two or three...

 

Yeah... how many times can a vest that I put over my body stop head shots? Oh I dunno, depends on the gun I guess, but I'd say three....

 

Yeah... it's totally realistic and doesn't make me think the vest are broken at all... (SARCASM MUCH?)

________________________________________________________________________________ __________

 

 

Ok and put aside the fact that these vests protect against headshots...

 

How come it seems that the vests are never the same?

 

I mean, I'll shoot an MK14 into a guy who just picked up vests and it'll take two or three shots to kill him.

 

Then I see another guy with vests on somewhere else in the map and it literally takes 5 shots with a MK14 just to get rid of his goddamn vest... he doesn't even die!

 

Is it just me? Or do these vests need to be f'in fixed!?!?

    I'd like to say, it's just you.

     

    As if you couldn't die fast enough already, you're complaining about taking a few more shots to kill someone? A second must last an eternity for you.

      Wow kid, you felt the need to add your two cents to both of my posts eh? Alright, I guess I'll reply to this one too.

       

      First of all, by your elite profile I can tell you are another one of those noob core kids. Yeah 6 hours of Hardcore TDM makes you an expert right? I bet you didn't even start playing HC until they buffed the vests because you couldn't handle real players like those that dominate HC game modes. I've got well over 400 hours of HC TDM experience, a 1.5 kd (in HC TDM), and am ranked 1300 or so in the world of HC TDM. You are an insignificant bug on the CoD windshield kid.

       

      And to reply to your post;

      A second must last an eternity for me? No kid, in a fire-fight an extra second or that extra bullet to kill someone usually means the difference between living and dying. And considering it now takes twice the number of bullets to punch through a vest, that means it's now easier for noobs like you to camp in corners and survive an onslaught of bullets from my MK14.

        6 hours, and at least half of it was spent before I started playing it with Vests and I have never used Blast Shield, even in HC and post-patch. Before that, I was actually using Specialist, but realizing a more proper strategy, I started using the Support package. I actually enjoy HC more because of the one-hit kill ability of most of my loadouts.
        Your rank and experience is nothing if you can't adapt to current strategies, but hey, it's up to you if you want to stick to being obselete.
        As for Vests, it doesn't just add health, it protects your character as well. It's just stronger in HC because it would be useless. Oh wait, Blast Shield was like that pre-patch. What do you know.

    I just want to point out that some people might take different amount of bullets because they have already been shot.

     

    Now on to my opinions about what you said. I agree vests are retarded. They took out Juggernaut (a perk in COD4 incase you didn't know) and gave us this ****. There is no reason a person should be given extra health. I am ok with the Juggernaut killstreak, because if you get it you definitely earned the right to walk through people. Yes, the vests are stupid and should be removed, but I would rather see deathstreaks removed first.

    Vests are not broken, the game is not coded to where the vest only protects the players torso of the body. It provides protection for the full body when worn, this is how they chose to make it. They have the right to make the game be like how they want even if it is not how you want.

      With the "they have the right to make the game how they want" logic then can make a game with as much lag as anything else and they have the right to make. With your logic a person can not voice their concern over lag because "IW can make it however they want".

    So what!! Just play the game.

      I do play the game! I just came on here to discuss broken vests, got a problem with people b!tching? Then why are you on the forums!?!? lol

        I don't have a problem with them.  They are a support streak, that provides a little extra protection.  They might be one of the most selfless killstreaks out there, as you get very little XP from them and they provide those on your team that really care, some much needed protection.

         

        So what if they don't account for header's (or foot shots for that matter), it's just a simple concept, get a killstreak and you get this nifty added feature.  I think that is is what Dragon is trying to imply.

          Pretty much.

           

          Vests are meant to drastically change game play when used. Just like any other ksr or equipment can. I always asume a player may be using one in HC. So always play according to what is needed to remove them and then kill the player.

           

          I can be annoying to die to someone with it on, but its not broken. It is working how it was meant to.

           

          The problem with snipers is if you wait more then .5 second to fire that second shot the vest has allowed the health to regen so now it takes even more damage to kill. So when in HC and using the RSASS I always double fire if not tripple fire to get the kill.

    Stop acting like Call of Duty is supposed to be realistic. It's not supposed to be.

    I only got one thing to say about the vests, the random amount of bullets it takes before someone dies is due trough lag, it is also possible to see when people aren't wearing vest.

    Don't you have this moment that enemy A takes a few bullets to be downed, while enemy B takes a shitload of them before he goes down?!
