I've been reading a lot of posts about Akimbo saying that Akimbo should be left to the pistols (which will become the only secondaries with launchers and the knife as possibilities).
This is NOT a good idea.
For anyone who actually used them in MW2, they were 2HKO's with SP. So basically you click both buttons and get a kill. And if you don't have SP or missed a bullet? YOU KEEP FIRING. With guns like the M9 that had 15 bullets a mag, you were pretty much assured a kill up close. With high powered guns, namely the Deagle and Magnums, you didn't need SP and a 2HK was easy.
What am I trying to say? Treyarch is removing shotgun secondaries and the like because they have too much firepower and Akimbo pistols are simply that. Even if they recieved a big nerf, you're still slapping SMG's and shotgun users in the face. Akimbo pistols should possibly be a primary, perk, or be enabled once you pick up another pistol. For now...no, as it is.
Actually, he's right. I'm sure treyarch feels the same way. And besides, they said they wouldn't copy IW.
I dont like Akimbo' neither.
- Give's any weapon too much power, even handguns
- Looks ridiculous
- I know the game isnt suppose to be exactly like real life but it should atleast try to give the impression of realisim. I dont think firing 1 gun with 1 hand and reloading a gun with the other hand somehow, give's that impression.
And here's another way of looking at it from a weapon discription point of view.
'Dual wield weapon'
Imagine if the attachment description read like this.
'Double the Damage & Magazine size of this weapon at the cost of aiming down sight.'
Now, if people read it like that they'd have probaly played hell with IW.
