    Specialist Question

    Justin_IRE

      Has anyone found that while using an AR or LMG with specialist.. That when you get to "superman" mode (8 Kills)..  That is seem to get "too" fast.. The accuracy/ smooth playing is gone..

       

      I know it is because all the perks have just kicked in and you now like a scaled mule, and it is not a problem with my SMG class..

       

      All I seem to be able to handle the change is turning my sensitivity down. I have taught of putting a big launcher on my back to slow things down.

       

      Anyone else found this as a problem? Any corrective advice?

          it's because you unlock stalker, which make you move faster while aiming down sight. with smg's you move pretty fast while aiming down sight without stalker, and when you get the stalker perk you don’t notice alot of difference,

            Besides stalker you also get a 10% speed boost.

              It's all Stalkers fault. If I could I'd disable it from Specialist because I end up spraying all over the place. It's gotten me killed a couple times

                Yea, I have found the Speed boost difficult at best to get used to..

                 

                I would use and agree if there was an option to disable some perks. Could be handy.

                  I typically use stalker so when I get the Spec Bonus it is not too much of a change

                  As well, I have my sensitivity on 10... I could reduce that though...

                    • Re: Specialist Question

                      I was going to say this also. If you set your third perk to Stalker, you'll already be used to it, so you won't have to adjust when you unlock it after 8 kills. Extreme Conditioning is another one, especially if you're running with an LMG. I tried out the Speed proficiency on the L86 last night and had to take it off because I was moving too fast.

                        You need to go to 7. Seriously slow it down a bit. Unless you snipe primarily its way to fast.

                        I love it!!!  I call it "beast mode", all of a sudden you are lighter on your feet, can run around for longer, shoot faster!  Talk about an unbalanced advantage...

                         

                        I wonder why no one has made a thread about the Specialist strike package being OP...??

                            ssshhhh now now.. we wont be starting a "Nerf" topic to one of the best things in the game..

                             

                            Had 2 games over the weekend where everyone seemed to be using it.. no UAV's, Reapers, Choppers.. etc.. it was two of the most enjoyable games I have played to date!

                              Probably because most people, as I do, can get a higher kill total and better K/D with assault. I just use it to rank up faster but when I get to 15 then 20 assault will be my strike package.

                                The first person who says the Specialist package is OP is going to get my fist through their computer monitor.

                                 

                                I worked damn hard to get that bonus and it's probably the most deserving pointstreak in the game. Wanna b*tch about a strike package then go b*tch about the Support package

                                    I know, I was just sitting there thinking "wow, specialist is king".  I could care less that I don't get those "extra" kills from a killstreak.  I don't need to pad my k/d to make others think I am some super badass player. 

                                     

                                    With all the stuff people claim is OP, I was just very surprised that no one has ever tried to claim specialist strike package was OP. 

                                     

                                    Personally, I think it is the best addition they made to this game and I hope it continues with other COD titles.  I only run specialist and most of the times it is a godsend to have that extra perk.

                                        IMO the best addition was the ability to hear someone's reaction after you killed them. That was priceless especially when it wasn't a well known feature.

                                          Yeah I hear you... for awhile I was thinking:"Now that I am one prestiging I will start to use the assault packages"... meh

                                           

                                          I found this setup was too easy: Pred, reaper, AC130 (or pred, attack copter, reaper). It was fun at first, but I migrating back to the specialist package on all classes. Personally, I find it mroe fun (but that is my opinion).

                                           

                                          Sucks to be me, but 7/10 times I get to god mode, I die!

                                      Its stalker. If you dont use it primarily then it screws u up. Well atleast for me it takes a brief adjustment period. Start spraying a bit more. Thats my advice.

                                      • Re: Specialist Question

                                        Its all Stalkers fault. I hated that perk when the game first come out, but now I have it on every class and I feel lost without using it. I suggest you start running it, and you'll get used to it very quickly. Its a great perk. Its much easier to take out corner campers if you can come around the corner quickly already ADSed, Thats why I started using it and it has been very helpful

                                          you get all available proficiencies also. focus will make you seem like you look around quicker when you're ads and in a firefight if you're used to the flinch without.

                                            Glad you said that rlbl....

                                             

                                            I rarely get more then a kill or two after I hit specialist.  I almost always get toasted.  I start running around like freakin batman on roids and end up more like a bat with rabies.  I think thats why I stick to LMG's more often it keeps me slowed down a little.

                                             

                                            On a second note it is the best addition to this game and I hope 3arch arent too proud to use it for bops2.

                                                same, my most used gun is the MK14.. so when "beast" mode is activated.. its tricky to keep the accuracy together..

                                                I dont find it a problem at all with SMG's just that one..

                                                 

                                                As for spray and pray.. just not my game style.. all about leading the target and getting that headshot
