Black Ops forum

Let's say Black Ops is released and everything is fine for the first few months.



But then lots of people start to use the same guns. In every game you walk into, that specific gun is bound to be there and used by 50% or more of the people there, much like what happened with the M16 in COD4, MP40 in WAW, and anything that rhymes with R in MW2.



Should Treyarch nerf these weapons once they get to a point like this?

Haha, a randomization of weapon stats every 2-3 months would be crazy stupid.

Well we wouldn't want everyone using the same gun like in WAW...

No. If they nerf a certain gun everyone would go to another gun. Then they would nerf that one and everyone would go to another. The cycle would just go on and on.



That would make the game turn bad.



Also, people need to choice to choose any gun they please.

Under one hand, definitly, that way people will think 'OMGZ THIZ WEPON IS DUM LETZ DO DIFWENT GUNZ!'



One the other hand, might not be such a good idea because people will switch to another gun, which will eventually get nerfed, then another, and another...you get my point...

Think about it. In WAW everyone would have more or less diversified. There is nothing that can really follow up to the MP40 or even go close to its power, the Thompson being a MAYBE. But people sure wouldn't all start using the Thompson.

Besides, I don't think we want this game to end up like WAW...

Well hopefully treyarch know now to balance it properly before the game is released so this won't happen
