Dual Wielded Pistols Are NOT A Good Idea

Black Ops forum

Agreed.



The people that say Shotguns and machine pistols need to go, and then support Akimbo pistols are just fooling themselves.



The only drawback to akimbo pistols is that you can't aim down your sights, so accurate firing isn't exactly an option. This is easily offset by the fact that all you have to do is click the trigger AFAP, and you get the kill close range. Using your pistol beyond close range is almost always suicide, and since the entire purpose of handguns is to fast swap, having to waste extra time to ADS isn't always preferred.



pistols become easymode, almost as powerful as shotguns, with very little in the way of severe drawbacks. (for a handgun).

I agree if shotguns are a primary weapon then anything that is akimbo should be a primary weapon. If Akimbo is secondary and shotguns are primary then everyone will run around with akimbos and that would be retarded and annoying.



Personally I would like them not in the game at all but I have a feeling they will be in Black Ops. If that is the case make them a primary weapon.

But running around as a sniper with silenced dual M9s had to be by far the best thing evar! I say keeps





Would be the "best thing evar" if the silencers worked. Anyways, I think Treyarch should keep the pistols simple; they could add a few unique perks. Remember Treyarch, keep it simple and don't add all these rubbish attachments that don't even work.

I'm not a huge fan of akimbo anything in the first place. The inaccuracy of using weapons like this is comical, no one uses them because it's better to knife at an akimbo weapon's most effective range (point blank) and more effective to just aim down a sight at just about any other range (akimbo's least effective ranges).



Needless to say I support the original poster in his stance against akimbo pistols. I think Treyarch can come up with more useful and unique attachments to a weapon.

Pistols are a 2 hit kill with SP? And you only need to pull both triggeers??? So F**k! Just double tap. How is akimbo M9s better than a single if the target is over 15meters away.



The 357 was a sniper, and fine.

Hopefully Treyarch loses Akimbo altogether - unrealistic and stupid.
