All I see is smart a$$ remarks that involve Blast Shield or trophy systems. I know you can equip blast shield, reflex, extra tac, and your only job will be to run around everyone and placing trophy systems out when you hear the explosives coming ( sounds FUN, since everyone wants to talk about fun).. I don't agree with banning anything..I agree that things need to be fixed in Hardcore...so how about all you obvious tubers stop responding with all the sarcasm and just be honest that you know it's ridiculous to die from a thermobaric tactical grenade and that running around with 3 or 4 tubes in hardcore is just plain...unplayable. Or how about each of you gimme your gamertag I'll invite you to a game and you can show me how it's done...i'll make sure my guys on the other team are well equip...All of you wanna make fun of a post...flame, troll whatever it is you feel the need to do, but you aren't helping matters. You wanna blast a guy for making a "stupid" post, by making a stupid post yourself. The title could of been different,but I'm sure he knew it would provide plenty of views. The point is, explosives in Hardcore need to be addresses.

That's part of the challenge of HC - working together as a team. Think of it this way - if you pair up or complete objectives in Dom as a team, the flags are capped before the other team even has a chance to launch that grenade. I run solo all of the time - and have been in my fair share of grenade happy rooms - but as I said - I play for fun, could care less about my K/D - my main goal is to capture objectives and win the match. Because of this, I have adapted to playing HC Dom and changed out my canister bombs and semtex for C4. LOVE dropping the C4 near an objective - as soon as I hear "losing A/B/C" I hit the trigger and "BOOM" - Defense Maybe the problem is the OP needs to worry more about dealing with the weapons of the game and less about their K/D....just my thought

Admittedly, I haven't done HC in this game just yet. But in Core, you get two tubes per life and they do not resupply. If you get "3 or 4" per life in HC, then, yes, that might be an issue. But I find it difficult to believe they would place 150% to 200% more tubes in HC as opposed to Core.

Nah, you dont even get 3 or 4 unless you are counting the setup where you have the undermount on your primary and the 2 shot GL secondary, but that is it.

And IW made it in MW3 that you could not resupply GL using Scavenger unless the person you resupply from also used the GL but I am not sure if they made Scavenger resupply those again. I would laugh if I found out they did.

I will clarify...3 tubes...and when 2 or 3 guys are running around with them...it is an issue, I really wish people wouldn't state the obvious and keep telling me I should run around with Blast shield ( doesn't protect you in HC ) and trophy systems. ( not saying you are, but it seems I need to clarify every word I say on these forums and cannot use any exaggeration ) . I'm more concerned with a thermobaric grenade that kills me and the gryphon takes 5 hits to kill someone.... doesn't make sense. I'm not an idiot that wants everything banned. Just stating the obvious. It's easy to say " there are counters stop whining". I'm not whining, I'm stating facts. By all means anyone who wants to come play me on HC DOM and run around with 2 trophy systems and see if you break 100 points I will accept the challenge. For the guy who said I didn't mention "clans" HC is a huge part of clan wars so obviously you know nothing about HC, Clans..or how the game play is. I'm not complaining, I'm just merely stating the obvious of flaws in the game. ( hope my punctuation and grammar was okay for everyone )...anyways...I made my point and stated my opinion along with facts. It won't matter regardless but I thought a forum was for discussion...seems to me it's just people trying top act "tougher" "smarter" and "know it alls" who try to out wit you with comments. It's pathetic..I guess I shouldn't of thought si highly about the CoD community.

Then next time post with some common sense rather then saying that they should ban explosives tell them to buff Blast Shield in Hardcore it's that simple. Then tell them to fix the stats of the thermobatic grenade and the Gryphon is that's simple. Don't go on these forums yelling cause it's not going to help your cause. It's not the explosives fault you are dying it's Blast Shield's and messed up stats fault.

@ kstaples ... the problem is that the devs have been making changes to these games that are based on a lot of hyperbole. Nonetheless ... Ghosts is the ONLY COD in which I have not played HC. However, I just got the game, too. I will play it because I've always enjoyed HC. As far as Blast Shield goes, I wouldn't use it much regardless of its effectiveness and regardless of whether or not other people are using tubes a lot. Prior to BO1, I played a crap load of HC. Prior to BO1, C4 was not the only explosive worth using - they were all very effective. Now? Not so much. So, on the one hand, I can relate - don't tell me about Blast Shield because I'm not interested in using it (same for Trophy Systems). On the other hand, I just never had much of a problem with explosives that could easily kill you.

I would take you up on your challenge, but it comes across much like a 1v1 challenge and ... well, I just won't go there. I have yet to use the thermobaric grenade or the gryphon and I don't think anyone has used them on me. I'll check them out and let you know my opinion on them. I have no problem teaming up with your or your clan and giving it a go against those that are giving you headaches just to get a better feel for what you are talking about. In any case, maybe you do have a point. I'll have to check it out for myself to be certain.

At any rate, I am extremely reluctant to go along with buffs or nerfs - regardless of whether or not they are needed. As we have seen for a number of years now, you allow one group a buff/nerf, then another crowd feels they have a right to one, as well, then another group, and another group ... before you know it, the game sucks because nothing is really balanced at all. Everyone is just back to square one and feeling happy because, why, the devs "listened to me" and ... well, hopefully you get the point.

I'll be fair and check it out further myself. But, like I said, I doubt I'll feel any differently about adjusting anything in the game.

Checked it. Didn't see an issue.

To say that blast shield doesn't work in HC is silly. It does. It works well. I actually do run around with two trophy systems in HC DOM... with blast shield. You would be amazed at how the other team reacts. And, yes, I'll break 100pts. But "1v1 me bro" challenges are barely sophomoric. The fact you are in the the room versus any other group of players... since it's such a common problem, after all... makes no difference.

Things you continue to label as facts aren't facts... they're simply your opinion.

The reason you feel like you are getting grief is because you are ranting and then crying for a nerf. Try reading your OP with an open mind and you'll get why it was met with mostly sarcasm and quick, obvious replies. To be honest, the very post I quoted above comes across with a smug attitude about your perspective and belittles everyone else.

You get what you give, neighbor.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),
