Tangenting completely from my usual theme of satirising the ridiculous inflation in usage of certain weapons, I've decided to catalogue a trio of perk combinations which might prove useful to you.
Note that these are of my opinion only and may differ from your hardline COD-first opinions which are results of continuous days studying play strategies (and growing a beard from not getting up off the lounge.)
A Sniper's Dream
Simple: equip Blind Eye, Assassin, and Dead Silence. Blind Eye will stop you from being targeted by any annoying helicopters or sentry guns in the rare times that your Vitamin-D deficient sniper skin sees the light of day (thanks to your in-game character being inside all the time). Assassin, the biggest help here, stops tho…Read more >
The recent patch has brought two things which are game changing: the first one would be the Striker losing a pellet. So our trusted shotgun has now been nerfed to kingdom come (but idiots still use them.)

There has been a massive surge in the amount of people running around with PP90M1s (which includes me, I spent my first Prestige token on the helical baby) and it's really getting out of hand.
You will find PP90M1s with various attachments, proficiencies and camouflages all over the floor every match (wonderful - I don't need Scavenger anymore!) and it's how people turn the tables of FFA matches: switch to your SMG class after much trauma caused by other PP90M1s and let rip.
In fact, SMGs have seen more prominence as a whole in this new metagame - UMPs, MP7 s and (the Godly) PP90M1s litter the floors, the character models, and the golden camouflage market. Where have shotguns gone? Where's the beauti…Read more >
