Second Chance.. oh yes, that perk that you hear about all the time. Complaint after complaint, yet it still appears. It started off in Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare as Last Stand. Last stand gave you one last chance to shoot the person who killed you with your pistol sidearm. Then returned in MW2 as Last Stand but added the feature to crawl. Then in Black Ops it returned as Second Chance, but Treyarch pushed it a little to far (We’ll explain). Then it returned to MW3 as a death streak in which if you survive, you could stand back up!
In Black Ops Second Chance was the one thing that made me want to throw my controller at the screen. You would shoot someone then they would get into the Second Chance mode. They would be on the ground with their weapon still shooting, but the worst part, they could be revived by their teammates. What were you thinking Treyarch? Please, please, please, Treyarch do NOT bring Second Chance, Last Stand, or any form of this back into Black Ops 2. It ruined the “fast pace” basics of Call Of Duty. The reason why we played Call of Duty was lost at some points because of this feature. Yes I understand how you guys say “what about the new comers?” Give them other death streaks, like in MW3, Juiced. It is NON-Lethal, and doesn’t piss people off. Treyarch, I know you guys care CoD community, so please leave out this feature/perk/whatever-other-form-you-are-thinking-about.
When we asked a few folks on twitter, @DiRizz responded, “No, because it’s the worst perk ever created in Call of Duty.” And @GBP480 said, “No because Treyarch would get to much complaints for that”. And @the_gibbymanx said, “no cause all people do is whine about it and that’s annoying, personally I have no gameplay problems with it, but wouldn’t use it”.
