UAV Update Complaints

I just got done reading through a bunch of threads complaining about the new update that raised the UAV score requirement, and I just have to say that a lot of you have shown your true colors as red dot chasing enthusiasts! Has anyone's gaming experience been changed for the worse since the update keeping in mind that camping has always been a part of online shooters and never will go away?

The UAV spamming was a real problem, and at least we can all play with out hearing the dreaded "be advised, hostile UAV inbound." With that said, I think that this all could have been avoided if Treyarch didn't nerf Ghost as badly as they did.

Yhey could've trown AUV to 700 points for all I care. Don't use it. Was completely overused and annoying. I unlocked ghost permenant just to play a bit more relaxed.

Exactly. I don't appreciate how they try and force run-and-gun down our throats. This is a step in the right direction.

The UAVs were never a problem, being a low score streak, or being the ONLY killstreak in the earlier games, people have just gotten used to being able to hide from the UAV in the past two games without giving anything up, Treyarch is just trying to please that crowd. I honestly dont see why people are so afraid to be on the UAV, if you are good at flanking and with your gun, then showing up on as a dot on the UAV every 5 seconds wont change that, it didnt affect flanking in COD4/WAW, and if you wanted full stealth you gave up a bit of gun damage or extra health, perfect balance IMO.

Anyways, there are MULTIPLE ways of taking out or dealing with the UAV, this generation of COD players are just lazy and want everything on easy mode.

They still aren't a real problem. it was just getting anoying hearing every damn 20 seconds something like enemy UAV up or Uav from your own side of the team. You do have to admit, in MW1 and WAW the gameplay was completely diffrent then MW3 and BLOPS2. And even MW3 and BLOPS2 play completely diffrent.

I miss playing MW1. Still the best but full of hackers.

Yep. We all know that you can deal with the UAVs a whole bunch of ways, but we don't feel like we should HAVE to deal with them throughout the entire match.

It was getting to the point that I only used blackhats and stingers instead of enjoying any of the other secondaries and other equipment options.

There were constant UAVs up in COD4 and WAW, and the majority of people never used UAV jammer, because they werent afraid to be on the radar, and they didnt want to lessen their gun damage or have a little bit more health.

Ghost works just fine, all you have to do is move, and the UAV is not a constant dot, its a sweep, you dont have to be moving all the time to make ghost be effective. I think people are just babies,  someone could throw down betties and shock charges, stand at the back of the map and do nothing but shoot down UAVs and air support and get their own UAVs and killstreaks...

MW3 has the support EMP and AA turrets.
Blops has AA turrets.

People forget that both anti-vehicle launchers can be refilled with scavenger.


In MW3 and BLOPS, AA turrets took care of most UAVs.

In MW3, the EMP is the great equalizer

In BLOPS 2... no AA turret, EMPs are expensive.  People don't run with missile launchers.

Solution: Make EMPs cheaper.

Anyhow, MW2 was some broken stuff... predator missile spam.

I couldn't have put it better. I find it very confusing that there are no AA turrets in this game, especially considering how heavily this game's theme revolves around AI controlled devices.
