The only easy day... was yesterday.

Call of Duty Black Ops II Playstation 3

The only easy day... was yesterday.

I've been playing some MW3 lately and although it has the same lag issues and worse spawns it is so easy compared to Blops 2, infact all CODs are easy compared to Blops 2. I've been getting lots of reapers, pavelows and ac-130s. I've had alot of 30+ kills below 5 death games. Does anyone else think that Blops 2 is the most difficult COD? I had a game on Resistance, rushed the spawn and got a reaper (9 killstreak) in under a minute but in Blops 2 I can barely get a bloodthirsty. I'm not complaining and I'm not trying to brag because I'll be the first to admit I'm not the best COD player. I'm just curious if anyone else thinks that Blops 2 is the most challenging COD to date.

I have been back to MW3 too. your right, its insanely easy compared to BO2. to do well in BO2 i have to put my full concentration into it, think about everything i do and time everything spot on.

In MW3 i run about like a headless chicken, racking up kills without any real effort or concentration.

The pace of the game is more suited to my style of play, and the simple aid of sleight of hand helps keep the flow and allows you to get more lead on target quickly.

BO2 with SoH would be

Playing MW3 made me realise how much I miss SOH. Sound is a huge factor as well. In MW3 is someone spawned behind you atleast you could hear their footsteps. I didn't compare stats but it just feels like weapons generally killed faster in previous CODs. I don't know if it's lag or weapons in Blops 2 do actually have slower TTKs but it takes forever to kill someone in Blops 2 compared to MW3.

Can't edit original post . Forgot to mention that this post is purely within a TDM context as I almost exclusively play TDM.

I don't think Black Ops II is hard skill wise, its just tough fighting all the different enemies; lag, spawns, frame rate drops, horrible teammates.

Then you add in the fact that there's another team you have battle against and the game becomes impossible

MW3's lag is just as bad and the spawns are worse. As for horrible teammates I think it's so much easier to carry a bad team in MW3 compared to Blops 2 (remember this is from a TDM players perspective).

Its not just you, I always go back and play previous cods out of their main life cycle. Ive had the itch recently to play black ops 1 and all I can say is that the hit detection is still garbage and that hardline with a 2 kill uav, a 3 kill cuav, and a 7 sr71 is possibly the most fun Ive had play cod in awhile. Most of the reason why the cods seems to run better out of life cycle is because a majority of the people with horrible connections have moved onto the next cod and the majority of try hards are gone.

I got a brutal the other day. Would've got a nuclear with 2 more kills but the timer ran out.  Sucks, but I digress:

I think Black Ops 2 is one of the more skill based CoDs, with players on this game are genuinely good at it. There's less cheap shit to abuse, but if you're a decent player, you shouldn't have too much trouble. The hardest CoD for me would be MW3 hands down, but that just bordered unplayable.

I got a brutal in a TDM game on Turbine but when I looked at the score it was at 71 . I wish my teammates would have stopped killing people.
