A few of my team mates are successful in killing some of them but those cheaters are spread apart and we were not able to grab the tags. There were like three Riot Shield users in the front and the other three switched their shield to their other primary weapon and they were picking us from mid range. Trust me mate, those cheaters were professionals and it seems like they practiced this unfair tactic and perfected it. If I get near them then I get blasted by a C4 and those one on the back are protected by the RS users in the front. i told them that their tactic will be nerfed soon and they laughed even more and told me to get better.
They made me play like a noob and they insulted me with their tactic. IW should do something about it. This problem is no longer an epidemic. It is now a pandemic and Ghosts was ruined by these no life Riot Shield cheaters!
In my opinion, the best way they can remedy this is by removing the ability for equipment to be used while the shield is equipped. As a result, the shield itself will be restored to its proper defensive based purpose. While they're at it, have the C4 updated to only allow remote detonations when the equipment sticks to a surface, thus disallowing any midair explosions.
If the devs can take the time to understand why it's too powerful, then perhaps we can get somewhere. But we'll most likely end up having to bite the bullet until the next Call of Duty is released. Business as usual I suppose, especially when it comes to making the lesser skilled feel happy about themselves.
I think your post has brought out all these noobs who abuse it.
If you have to set up a specific class that is completely out of the ordinary just to counter something, then it is not balanced. These are the same kids that were A okay with danger close/OMA in mw2. It was balanced right? I mean all you have to do is shoot the guy.
