I riot shield with BS, (bad-dum-tss) and still get OHKd by DC noob tubes, and sometimes C4.

That doesn't surprise me.  BS going up against normal explosives often fails it you take a direct hit.  If ever there was a perk that could use a buff that would be it.  However, that's just how IWs game are made which is why I prefer to stay outside of their blast radius.  Granted that isn't always possible to do but I can make it work most of the time just by picking longer line of sight routes when I'm going up against them.

Should there really be a counter to Danger Close?  Danger Close is a 4 point perk, meant to counter Blast Shield, a 2 point perk.

Without Danger Close, explosives would be useless, and would be pointless to be in the game.

Explosives aren't useless without DC.  Blast shield is pretty weak in IW games and doesn't work against a direct hit.  The ballistic vest is actually stronger than BS in my opinion.  However, you do make a good point that DC is a 4 point perk.  If you are going to tie up 4 points on one perk it had better work.

Explosives should not require accuracy of a sniper rifle in order to get a one hit kill so yes they are useless with out Danger Close. Also Blast Shield is just broken against noob tubes I didn't killed by a grenade without it and when I had it on I died. Danger Close should be like it was in MW2 all it did was increase the blast radius because the explosives already did one hundred percent damage.

I won't argue with you on your first point.  I agree that they shouldn't require pin point accuracy but they do.  Or at least a lot of them do.  The C4 and the IED both give you a little cushion to play with but the grenade and rocket launchers pretty much have to be a direct hit to get a kill no matter what the other guy is using.  Understanding this I've gotten pretty good at pinging people with them and therefore I have no trouble killing people with explosives.  So they work for me even though I agree that they should have a wider highest damage radius.  I'm pretty sure in Ghosts DC doesn't increase the overall blast radius but it just makes the strongest point within the blast cone further out.

Danger Close in this game should increase damage and blast radius in my opinion. If explosives did their job Danger Close would be worth four points unfortunately they don't so Danger Close should be worth two points.

Well I should have added the I only play HC Dom and blast shield is completely pointless.  Blast shield should be the counter for standard tubes as well as the tubes with Danger Close... it's basically the most powerful gun in the game because there is no counter for it
