I agree, the dog is annoying but it's a killstreak. I've gotten killed by the dog, but it's my fault 95% of the time. I kill the owner and forget about the dog. There are times I just walk into a room and the owner is camping there, not much I can do about that. If OP wants the complain about something, he should look in the mirror. You corner camping, leaning players make this game at unplayable at times. I was playing dom on the map that's raining and those bastards were hiding in the grass the whole game. I don't if it's the map size or quick deaths but these guys just wait for ppl to walk by.
I have been running armor piercing rounds in my Honey Badger and it "seems" to be helping with the dogs,....maybe because of their vest?
I have not had much success with dogs but like a lot of you been killed by them often. I think my run and gun play style puts my dog in harms way to often,...seems they are a campers best friend.
The dogs just seem to take wayyyy too much damage (at least in hardcore). I can drop an enemy in 2-3 shots, 1 with a sniper, but the dogs take many more to drop. They're WAY too mobile, and I've seen one glitch through a wall.
The other day I was on Warhawk I believe (The map with the antique store and bakery), and sniped the owner out of the antiques window with my Lynx, and as soon as I did the dog jumps out of the two story window.....really?!? Luckily I shot it mid-air and killed him (must have been low on health). Still, I think they're really buggy, but so is the game at times. I can't tell you how many times I've sniped someone who was laying down facing me, striking them right in the face with my Lynx and chrome, and got a hitmarker.
Still, a dog taking a Lynx shot to the face rolls over, and comes back for more? That's just not right.
At the time I described, I was across the map at the top of the bakery. That was the only time I've ever one-shot a dog. I assume he had taken fire before he jumped out of the window.
Even at closer range, I've had to shoot a dog 2 or 3 times with the rifle. Luckily it rolls because with that chrome barrel attachment, and no reduced recoil, your shots have to be good and fast, or else you've got a dog gnawing on your neck.
