I love the Trophy System and really not sure how but I got a double kill with it the other night. I wish I would have kept that video and seen what happened.
The real Trophy system (the one designed to protect Israeli tanks from rockets and missiles) detects an incoming threat and fires a bunch of metal pellets at it, kind of like a computer-targeted shotgun.
The MW3 version just seems to do a weak explosion of its own covering the entire surrounding area, not only destroying the incoming explosive, but also damaging nearby enemies. If an enemy is wounded, a Trophy can kill them.
It shoots the projectile to detonate it mid-air instead of when it hits the ground. It protects against grenades, secondary grenades, RPGs and (I believe airstrikes and such), but only for 2 uses per life. Its not a glitch or anything.
A predator is only a 5 kill streak and without a trophy is an easy double to launch to attack heli.
It's not a glitch and should stay how it is. Watch te YouTube video on the real life trophy system. It's used on tanks and it's badass.
Speaking of double kills, I got a game winning kill with a trophy last night. I would uploa it and show you but my elite is broken. I was lying prone with my deagle and you hear pop. Going back tO theater offered little explanation.
Full list is nades, betties, c4, rocket propelled grenades, noob tubes, grenade launches, the 40 and 105 mm shells of the ac 130, air to ground missiles including pred, and it has some effect on stealth bomber.
WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT A GLITCH? i have said nothing about a glitch in this thread have i?
All i'm saying is that is pathetic for a throphy system to destroy a pred..
You saying "fixed" implied that there was an error in coding.
When you consider that the IMS is 90% avoidable by having sitrep on and a sentry gun is 100% avoidable with blind eye, it would be completely unbalanced for the pred to have no counter. You're just lucky hardly anyone uses them.
