What does using your gun have anything to do with why blast shield and danger close are in the game? Blast shield in blops was retarded and had no counter you ate explosives and laughed about it now blast shield has a counter and it's a bad idea and should be removed. Why don't you guys just get over it you died from a explosive what's the difference than being shot you still died and then re spawned they still got a kill and moved on.
If only Blast Shield is in the game, the explosives wont kill you if you equip it. Therefore, the player who used the explosive, if they want the kill, has to go into the location or find an angle where they can see you to finish you off with their gun. Danger Close completely overriding Blast Shield means people can just spam explosives.
And why the hell does everything need a counter, even the COUNTERS? Is the Call of Duty: The Counter Perk Wars? I thought people wanted gun on gun action in an FPS, well f*** me sideways I guess.
Yes, I am pretty sure that people love being blown up by explosives so much, its not like there was huge outcry about SnD/R being ruined by RS/C4/DC - no, people love explosives especially when they are pocket nukes. People complained and it got changed, same principle applies here.
Also, since we're reaching about playstyles, you sound butthurt that someone wearing Flak Jacket in Blops (1 or 2) was resistant to your no skill explosive spam and thinks the game should cater to you.
You are acting like a sheeple that thinks we should be honored that IW has graced us with CoD:Ghosts, that IW can do no wrong because they are the almighty devs, and if you don't like something, you should leave.
