Black Ops 2: 4 Things We Want To See
4. Insta-banning For Players Using The Noob Tube
The humble grenade launcher is immensely popular because anyone can use it and it is devastatingly effective. Too effective: it requires no skill. Over the years we’ve told this to the producers of Black Ops, Homefront and Modern Warfare 3, and each time they laughed nervously and seemed unable to answer the question as to what to do about it.
Being the geniuses we are however, we’ve figured it out. It’s very simple, really: every time you use the noob tube (which is once, in this instance) then you get banned from COD Elite, PSN and The Beano Fan Club. That’ll learn ‘em.
3. Removal of Overpowered Weapons
It’s all well and good saying that you’ll ‘balance the weapons’, Mr Developer Man, but we don’t believe you. We’ve played enough COD to realise by now that some guns are overpowered, and some never get used.
The ones that never get used aren’t a problem of course, but people abusing OP weapons is a nightmare. Tried to play Modern Warfare 3 lately? Everyone using the RSASS rifle, sometimes with an ACOG scope on it? Killing you before you get a chance to even think? Thought so.
Nerfing guns seems like a good solution, but nah. Get rid, we say. Sure there will eventually only be one weapon left, but won’t we all be happy then?
2. The Ability To Choose Your Map
Battlefield gives you the choice of which map you play on. That Call of Duty still doesn’t, 50,000 years after COD 4, is stupid. And, should we leave a game having been dissatisfied with the level we dropped into, don’t put us back in the same one.
1. No Attack Dogs Killstreak
Because, come on people, they’re rubbish. No further explanation is necessary.
