How about you leave both the C4 and riot shield alone and learn to play against it like a good evolving player instead of acting like all the other thumb sucking, want their hand held all the time whiners?

IW is taking off the training wheels this game so you have to start fending for yourself. They should not be obligated by every whiner to change things just because the player cant beat it or gets killed by it all the time.

They finally made the riot shield actually worth using this time and i think that is why you have problem. In previous games, it was just about pointless to use the shield considering how easy it was to kill the people using it. But now with all these combos, it actually looks worthwhile to use and since you are complaining about it like that, that only gives more incentive to use it.

Key thing here, who cares? I have only seen 1 person since the day of release use a riot shield and get a kill with it. It is NOT an epidemic that needs a cure. It is fine the way it is.

I really don't see why they keep bringing back the riot shield.  The only people who seem to use it are trolls from what I see.

why dont they just make it to where penetration rounds can penetrate the riot sheild then they would make it seem real that would also make it easy to fix and would make a way around the bs

Because that would render the riot shield useless.  The only thing that should be limited is the equipment usage with the shield--not the entire shield itself.

I have to completely disagree. Why should the equipment for the riot shield be limited? It is not limited with any other primary weapon in the game so why should the shield be different?

That makes no sense whatsoever.

The riot shield's greatest feature is it's defensive capabilities.  With the equipment usage as fast as it is, the equipment gives more offensive capabilities to the shield than it needs.  That's like saying the shotgun should one shot kill people from across the map.

You know, I might agree if these "defensive capabilities" you talk always worked and I wasn't exposed half the time I should be covered. And the "defensive capabilities" you talk about come with a price that will get you killed: slow speed, cracked glass, heavily (even more so) connection dependent, and ZERO RANGE.

I find it funny that as soon the riot shield becomes viable it is deemed overpowered. That is just sad. The only range the riot shield has is absurdly close range, and it can't even do that by itself. It has to rely on equipment. And what makes this even more amusing is that the riot shield loadout  has occurred a not insignificant amount of nerfs since MW2. And yet you people think it is OP and try to put arbitrary restrictions on it.

Even with the riot shielders having this kind of capability, it is STILL easy as all hell to kill them.

And them having this good of a combo is a good thing because the riot shield users were very limited on what they were using which was just the shield and secondary weapon. It took a very bad aim on the opponents part for those using the shield to use c4 without getting killed in previous games. I view this change as a much needed change for the riot shield class because in previous games, it wasnt worth using at all. But now it gives just a tad more incentive to use it.

I really dont see the problem with them taking something that wasnt worth using before and making somewhat worth using now. Or is it just because you cant kill them flawlessly like you could in previous games and you have to work for it this time?

I disagree. Why would you limit what a Riot Shield user can wield? I get it, you're getting owned. That's why.

You are basically asking for a nerf on a combo that you're having difficulty dealing with.

They don't need to deny equipment usage with the riot shield. They should really just fix the problem. I'm sure it would be quite easy to do if they wanted.
