Ghosts General Discussion

so just wondering why do they not work on riot shields, as they work on jugs and choppers but not a shield, just seems silly

If they did the RS would be all but useless at that point. So they gave them that one protection so as to not make them completely useless. For once people learned that they worked against them everyone would use AP rounds and thus the RS would be completely null and void as a viable for anything ever.

aye AP rounds would counter the riot shield but then the riot shield counters normal rounds, just think its silly that it does not work on the shield

There are plenty of "silly" things in CoD. It's not a simulator meant to represent real life.

The Riot Shield shouldn't even be in the game to begin with.

It has a place in the game as a defensive tool when used correctly. Just most that use it don't do so or even understand how to do so for it relies on team work which does not happen with randoms that often.

Even when used correctly it's not entirely useful. With as many flank routes and the fact that it's not very protective outside of the 5-10* in front of the use I'd say it has a limited purpose that's so limited it's not worth it.

If I was the manufacturer of the Riot Shield, I would make it impervious to any type of bullet. Y'know, so it could actually be a shield.

It should rip through the riot shield.  Not kill them instantly, but good enough to where they cant hide in the corner.  Not everyone uses AP, so it seems fair to be able to get a couple of bullets through.

If not, might as well just a RS user a cape and the ability to fly.

AP rounds penetrating the riot shield is a stupid idea.
