Im genuinely confused by this because treyarch had brilliant gun balance in black ops 1 I never came across an overpowered weapon that made me feel totally outclassed there where definitely stronger weapons in each class but nothing majorly so but in black ops 2 I find the weapon balance to be a little iffy the snipers are just silly they might as well have put a magnet on the end of each snipers barrel thats attracted to enemy players since they made the auto aim so damn strong quick scoping now so easy ray charles can do it but on to the matter at hand.
Recently I have noticed a lot and I mean ALOT of people running pistol only classes I assume youtube has a hand in the huge increase in numbers over the last few days. Now the pistols have always been very very powerful down right scarily so but you didnt see many of them about apart from the quickscoping idiots who run them as secondaries however now people are running them as primaries and their power is showing to an obscene degree.
the five/seven is arguably the weakest of the pistols apart from the down right laughable executioner and yet it dropped me in 2 shots from one end of the walkway on express to the other and continued to do so for the rest of the match, I even pre aimed pre fired and head glitched my way to death against a strafing loon and a pistol that for some unknown reason did more damage per bullet it seems than the smr or fal.
Why on earth did the developers decide to create monster pistols like the kap 40 the most powerful smg in the game and the b233r the better than any assualt rifle in the game the five seven is marginally weaker and yet still out performs a scar at medium range didnt they learn from the fmg9s how much the community hates over powered secondaries at least the community outside of douchebags did
what are your thoughts on the pistols? have you noticed an uprise in these people running pistol only classes? and what happend to treyarchs weekly patches for over powered or under powered weapons this needs fixed and yet command central is strangely quiet
A pistol is a backup weapon not a primary it is your last line of defence when you need to reload or need a close range weapon for a sniper outside of overkill of course and they are not close ranged like I said I got dropped in 2 bullets from one end of the overwalk in express which isnt close range its medium and its consistant with that power too making it a damn sight better than the smr which takes 2 bullets sometimes and 3 at other times
So you comment on a thread with the same exact content and then post another thread? Canned meat.
Pistols take up a CaC slot, so they have to be usable, viable alternatives.
The guns in this game are amazingingly balanced. You must have never played with the Python in Black Ops. That gun was a sniper from range and a shotgun up close.
If I was to shoot you from one end of a bridge to the other with a 9mm pistol round twice as long as I didnt get a head shot you would live for several minutes in this game you die from two rounds at stupid distances it is a back up weapon not a primary stop treating it as such it does not reflect real life handeling and shouldnt even be half as powerful as they are.
a pistol should be a 4-5 bullet kill other wise we should just place them as primaries and be done with it
I started my thread before that other one was around I used the search function and couldnt see anything immediatly relevant as soon as I clicked post discussion it refreshed and loe and behold the other thread you are referring to was first one on the list I chuckled at the conincidence and then read and posted on his thread sorry for ruining your day by being part of a random sequence of events I shall try harder next time to avoid such things
