Michael Condrey has tweeted out that the team at Sledgehammer Games has heard fan-feedback and will be enabling parties in Gun Game in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in a future update. As of now, the game mode is constructed as a Free-For-All mode, which results in parties being disabled.

    Thank God!

    Wouldnt mind if they limited parties to 2 players in all honesty, would help stop boosting. We need one in the chamber back next, then a mosh pit of infected, gun game and one in the chamber.

  • Guywithbrains

    This is a nightmare for solo players. Parties already ruin the experience for solo players.

    I hope they add Mercenary playlist soon. I am tired of registered clans using ASM1 Speakeasy…

    • w

      yeah, now we want to be able to play against solo players with the ASM1 speakeasy ffs

    • lel

      How is it ruining your experience in Gun Game? Its a FFA game mode.

      • GinsuVictim

        How does going up against a team in Gun Game ruin my experience? Do you even hear yourself?

      • Guywithbrains

        Parties can work as a team. Also they can communicate to each other and tell what is my latest location.

        Now compare to it casual solo player who has no help at all. It is totally different situation in an unfair way.

  • Stefan Lang

    …. Yet another wasted idea. How about something like a MERCENARY PLAYLIST. Goddamn.

    • ccrows
    • Oli Laban

      How they haven’t added a mercenary playlist is beyond belief. All they want is competitive play. Still, I don’t think it’s a wasted idea. I’m not parted up often, but when I am, it’s modes like gun game and infected that I want to play. Same goes for a lot of people. Hence why it was in ‘party’ games in BO2.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I wouldn’t say it’s a wasted idea, but I agree a Mercenary Playlist is needed.

    • Ak74u

      You guys all kept whining and crying about having parties in gun game in the previous articles since gun game can out!!!!! I bet if they add a mercenary playlist you’ll still be bitching for more and won’t be satisfied. Retards that will never be satisfied with the game smh…. You guys can never have enough

      • Stefan Lang

        Lol fucking false cause I dont even play Gun Game which is why I dont give a shit about this coming to Gun Game. Having a Mercenary Playlist is way more tolerable than playing solo against clans all fucking day, so no, I won’t be complaining then.

        • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

          I dont play solo too much so I wouldnt use the mercenary playlist, but when I played with a friend during clan wars it was impossible to play in public matches so it really needs to be added.

      • Odin

        Because maybe some of us would like to play with friends on an online game.

  • HerrmTheWorm

    Get rid of SBMM my god. I’m sick and tired of playing against full parties. The only way to have fun in this game is with a full party going up against another full party. Forget about winning if you are playing solo and have a KD over 2 in this game.

    • jooker-jr

      You have a KD over 2 ?

      • HerrmTheWorm

        No just a 2. I don’t dashboard or quit mid game. Ruins part of the game.

        • HerrmTheFaggot

          whats your gt or psn then?

          • HerrmTheWorm

            Haha nice name dude. It’s HerrmTheWorm for both consoles.

        • jooker-jr

          Then you’re taking the game a bit too seriously.

      • common sense

        Please don’t listen to that dumbass drift0r. It’s based on SPM just like black ops 2 was.

        • jooker-jr

          He had good points in his video.

    • Stefan Lang

      I know the feel bro. every game me and 2 friends joined we played full fucking parties and nobody would join to be on our team. Fucking stupid ass shit. I swear I hate SBMM so much. Im not asking to just shit on noobs but mixed lobbies would be fucking nice!

    • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

      I have no problems with playing with harder people, actually like it (1.6kd), what I hate is the poorly optimised games causing lag, long search times and fact when I tried playing with my friend it came up with “error: skill difference too big”

      • HerrmTheWorm

        True that man. The lag is real. Thanks to surprise, surprise SBMM.

    • Guest

      If you’re as good as you say you are, then why would you be playing a team based mode solo??? If you wanted to win so much you wouldn’t be playing solo as much as you do. You play solo so you can get all the kills that having party members wouldn’t afford you. You traded out getting all the kills and being big fish in small pond for those wins so stfu.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Yet another CoD fanboy. You really need to quit making up excuses and get over the FACT that Advanced Warfare is one of the worst Call of Duties in its current state. Such simple things that could be fixed are NOT fixed.

        • HerrmTheWorm

          This game has potential. Can’t wait to see what treyarch has to offer on the next COD.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It does have potential. But that potential is still untouched due to the developers being so stubborn.

        • Guest

          How the hell am I a fanboy for telling someone that when you play solo on a game like AW with SBMM turned up to max that you’re going to lose more than win? How is that defending the game or being a fanboy like at all? Just because someone doesn’t send death threats to Condrey or say something explicitly negative that doesn’t mean they are a fanboy at all. I think AW is a piece of shit and so is SHG. I also know that when you play solo you’re stuck with so many randoms anyway so add SBMM to that you’re going to lose. He has a 2KD which isn’t so easy in AW so clearly he’s good so if he really wants to win he’d stop playing solo so much until they add mercenary. Some of you are so angry with the game that unless someone says “Eff” SHG you accuse them of being a fanboy. The game is garbage and you should stop accusing people of biases when they don’t coincide with your biased and overly butthurt opinions. Last two COD games are trash. Saying that adds nothing new, we know they are garbage games.

          • HerrmTheWorm

            Sucks cuz nobody plays this game. Might have to go back to blops2 or mw3. I’m looking for some new people to play with. Add me on Psn or Xbox – herrmtheworm

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I couldn’t care less. If you told me that I shouldn’t play solo even though I never play in a party, it would piss me off because I don’t feel obligated to do so, and nobody should be obligated to do it. That’s why a Mercenary playlist needs to exist.

          • Guest

            You being pissed is one thing, calling someone a fanboy when they didn’t even mention the game or defend it at all is paranoid and just angry. We understand the game is mediocre at best. We get that SBMM is ruining the game so until it’s fixed I’m offering a workaround which is just play with 1-2 guys just to avoid getting thrown into lobbies. I understand instead of a workaround you’d rather just cry and be angry but I thought maybe he didn’t.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Meh whatever. You’re not a fanboy, then.

        • Guest

          Reread what I told someone ELSE and then read your paranoid response.I never mentioned anything whatsoever about the devs lmao. So I guess it’s the games fault that he wants to only play solo on a game we acknowledge as shit. I guess before you talk to people on here you have to make sure you say, “Hey guys let me just say I hate SBMM, the BAL/ASM1 is OP and I’m tired of these sweaty tryhard camping kid and it brings a tear in my eye thinking about how COD4 was the greatest game with zero issues at all” Then I can make my point, sorry I know the rules now. Don’t worry I’m not a fanboy at all. Certainly not a hateboy like you. Especially since like a woman complaining about her abusive bf you’ll keep going back to AW after every angry little word you type.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You sure sound like a fanboy with the way you make excuses.

          • Guest

            Quote one thing I even said that would lead me to be a “fanboy”? Name one “excuse” I said. You’re just used to spewing pejoratives like “kid, fanboy, tryhard” whether it fits the description or not. I like to run solo and wish they added mercenary. I got tired of being thrust into games against parties dominating. So I play with 2 people to cut down the amount of times that happens. I decided to find a workaround. This is the 2nd worst COD ever. Try to be less of a rager though. Just because I don’t explicitly say “fuck you Condrey” doesn’t mean I nor anyone is a fanboy. I didn’t defend nor mention the game itself. I merely told him a solution that has cut down my rage. Now let’s just agree to disagree. I’m sure now that you realize I never defended anything about the game itself you go to the next internet move of checking my grammar lmao. I’ll just surrender now. The game is sad though, so either make it as enjoyable as possible and tweet Condrey or become a bitter jerk that is ready to call someone a fanboy or kid if they don’t say anything negative even if they didn’t say anything positive either.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’d tweet Condrey, if he didn’t have me blocked since August for being an e-Sports shill.

      • HerrmTheWorm

        I never said I was “good”. My 2 KD is decent. In previous CODs I’ve had better. I can hold my own, but whenever you play solo in obj modes it’s hard to even win a game because I’m constantly paired up with full parties. It’s ridiculous. I enjoy playing obj. Its a lot better than ffa or team death match. I play the objective and get kills. That’s what is fun to me about COD. It just sucks SBMM makes it damn near impossible to win without a full party. No idea why you’re being a little shithead and talking like you’re all big and bad. But hey man. Whatever.

        • Guest

          Although they could probably replace moshpit with mercenary I still don’t get your gripe. Were you winning running solo and never playing parties on previous COD games? When you play solo you know the majority of the time you’ll be best player on your team and most randoms either don’t play the objective or just aren’t good enough to contribute to the win at all. So of course team modes are more fun than FFA but when you go into a team based mode without at least 1-2 buddies with you then of course it’s an uphill battle. Unless your w/l was 1.7+ on ever COD playing solo then it is what it is. Until the add Mercenary, grab some friends or play your best and lose to parties.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      IKR?

      And what’s the point of giving me a Supply Drop for a daily challenge or unlockable camos when the game has SBMM? Why can’t they make a daily challenge for TDM? Edit: since SBMM in the game, challenges shouldn’t exist period.

      • RdJokr

        There is actually a TDM daily challenge. I just completed one yesterday.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          They always show up for objective game modes for me. I wouldn’t know because I haven’t played today.

          • RdJokr

            Same here. I cringe whenever I see a challenge that involves CTF or Momentum, because “PC”.

  • ccrows

    Condrey – “yeah, the people of spoken. Will look to make that change”

    ^ Really Condrey? The people have spoken (a whole lot more people BTW) about a much more important issue, and you have yet to fix that… *SMH*

    • theres like a thousand issues they said they were going to fix in a future update…. i have still yet to see any challenges to unlock elite weapons because all i get are MK14 variants and different color socks in my supply drops.

      • Melchor

        “Different color socks” – LOL

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        SBMM, BAL, ASM1, and a Mercenary playlist is far more important than unlockable Elite weapons.

  • Michael

    Too bad the game already sucks balls.

  • jooker-jr

    Nice !

  • Louis

    “Lots of people want parties in gun game” ummm like 3 people?…

  • ScOott

    Yesssss this is what I want !!! So disappointed I couldn’t play split screen … Gamers have wife’s Yano 😮

    • w

      wait i thought you were like 15, thats cool that u have a wife tho

      • ScOott

        Lmao I loved this comment

  • Andrew Venegas

    That exo suit?

  • Potato Republic

    I feel like Condrey has a somewhat mild to severe case of brain damage…

    Or is just very stubborn. Like, more than a damn mule.

    • It’s called prioritizing busniss matters over fans. I hate how marketing works.

  • Slingshot // Twitch/iiillilili

    i keep getting challenges for gun game but theres nowhere to track them because it wasnt added to the challenge list

  • Guywithbrains

    After playing a lot of Gun Game I find it less enjoyable compared to previous titles’ Gun Game because of spawns. I literally get into fight within 3 seconds after respawning and usually I die.

    • i watched someone spawn in front of me yesterday….. i lol’d and then i turned the game off.

      • Guywithbrains

        Spawns aren’t so bad in other modes but FFA based modes are cancers.

        Another problem in Gun Game are players “YOLOSW4GGERZBOYZ” using only knife. Really? REALLY?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I’m a big FFA player, and I haven’t come across such disgusting spawning until AW. Literally shot in the back constantly and seeing 3 guys on my screen as soon as I respawn all the time, and I notice this too with Gun Game. Hope the spawns get fixed in the near-future, but I won’t bet on it.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Ghosts’s spawns are worse (yet the game is still better than AW somehow).

        • w

          nah nothing beats ghosts in being bad.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I had fun when I played it. Still getting melted… But there’s no BAL or ASM1.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Ghosts spawns in FFA are bad, but nowhere near as bad as AW spawns in FFA.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Haven’t played FFA on Ghosts because I was never compelled to, but I definitely could believe that.

      • jordanxcomplainer

        youll love one shot ffa then. 12 people on the map yeee

  • drjakeyoung

    Already a glitch to get into gun game and free for all in party’s online. Just hover over the gungame (or free for all) playlist, then invite your freinds, and when they join the mode will not be blurred out. You can then play all free for all modes in full party’s online!

  • LikeaSomeboday

    Advanced Warfare is too unbalanced. They even managed to take the fun out of GG and Infected. COD is supposed to be a casual FUN game, not a skill based, competive game. There was a reason for league play. Tbh, Jordan has every right to be dissapointed. A game with so much potential ruined. Treyarch are the saviours.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Thanks, and I wouldn’t say “Treyarch are the saviours”, but boy I hope they make a fun game, otherwise I might lose all hope with CoD 🙁

      • Treyarch aren’t gonna be “saviours”.

        Activision provide the blueprint, the devs deliver it.

        Unless Activision get taken over or they actually carry out some useful market research into what people actually want, and deliver that with fine balance and not working to extreme changes such as Exo-Suits, CoD is on a downward spiral for the next 3 releases until Treyarch or the 2018 developer make something worth playing.

        I hope I’m wrong and I love 2015 CoD.. cos I’m dreading the possibility of Ghosts 2.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          The developers are the ones who put the things they do in the game. Activision is just like Gus from Breaking Bad; all they do is look over the project. SBMM is Sledgehammer’s fault. The only thing Activision is involved with are the BS microtransactions.

        • jordanxbrookes

          I didn’t say Treyarch were gonna be saviours, I was quoting him. But due to previous Treyarch games, I have fair confidence in Treyarch delivering a fun a game, just hope they don’t fuck up.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      You speak the truth, brother.

    • DEMOLITION12

      how is it supposed to be a casual game
      do you get that idea because the majority of players are shit

    • Guywithbrains

      Well I think Treyarch will deliver when it comes to story and Zombies.

      However, in my opinion their games have the most amount of lag from all. I hope they have learned and make fun game. I liked BO2 prestige system and map colors for example but those maps played horribly sometimes.

      • LikeaSomeboday

        David Vonderhaar said something on twitter, about trying to get Dedicated Servers on Cod 2015, and why it was hard,

        • If anyone from IW/Sledgehammer said that, I would not believe him.. Go go go, DV ! 🙂

    • Too unbalanced? Advanced Warfare doesn’t have infinite noob tubes and stupid deathstreaks like MW2 did.

      It also seems that people have this idea where a Call of Duty is only fun when you don’t have to try, yet can easily achieve victory. I’m sorry, but it doesn’t work that way, unless you’re a filthy reverse booster. Also, Ranked Play is extremely terrible since everyone quits 24/7 and only uses the BAL & ASM1.

      The only thing that ruins AW are the people. They complain all day about how it’s too difficult for them ie from SBMM or Exo Movements, resulting in people reverse boosting like cowards.

      • LikeaSomeboday

        My k d is higher than in previous COD’s.

  • LikeaSomeboday

    Also why does the AW dlc cost 20% more than previous COD’s?

    • Juses

      No it doesnt

      • LikeaSomeboday

        It does in the U.K.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    First step to change is to stop supplying the problem. COD is never going to change only the customers(you and I) can do is stop participating in this yearly freakin let down!! Back to back years of screwed up philosophy by Activision. Enough is enough. If they won’t make these games fun then we need to stop buying them. Simple isn’t it?

  • GinsuVictim

    “I know, let’s listen to what the STUPID people say we should do in our game….then DO IT!”
    -Michael Condrey

    Seriously, you can’t have single players going up against teams in a FFA mode.

    • Fariko Lunatik

      True and you just open up the abuse to boosters

  • AmzIsMyName

    This really should have been in gun game without an update, same thing with a pause menu in exo zombies. Sometimes I honestly don’t get the thought process behind some game developers.

    • GinsuVictim

      They thought, “Let’s make a FFA mode without party support, because that’s how FFA modes are supposed to be. OH, wait…..what’s that? Crybabies are crying?!? Quick, put a bottle in that mouth!”

      • Kobrah

        But it’s a party game

        • GinsuVictim

          FFA modes are not for parties. The only thing they need to do is give us Gun Game in private match if we want to play with our friends or bots, and they didn’t even do that.

  • Dr. Salim

    How come SHG always listens to the community after they mess something up.

  • idkwhatmynameis

    I’ve stopped playing for a few days and I don’t see myself playing again til the zombies drop. Lvl 45 on 14 prestige at least 10 days played and my armory is a joke. Best elite variant I have is my face hammer bulldog. I jus can’t take anymore disappointing supply drops. Soooo many games out there that reward your grind and accomplishments, but SG decided tosay to hell wit yall if you want the best shit you gotta be lucky.

    Moral of the story more fc4 and dbz comes out next sooo AW it was nice to meet you but I gotta whirlybird to catch

    • FATHEAD661

      Please don’t tell me that one of the other games you think has a better reward system is Destiny. That game is a complete and utter joke when it comes to rewards. Hell, the game as a whole is a joke.

      • idkwhatmynameis

        I traded destiny for borderlands pre sequel

  • 21

    ENABLE IT IN PRIVATE MATCHES WITH CUSTOMISABLE OPTIONS PLZ

    • 21

      Also, please fix Scavenger and make it work in Private Infected after you alter classes.

  • Random

    Well I’m less likely than ever to play gun game now. I enjoyed it in previous games, and had some fun playing a few games over the weekend in AW, but not once did I think that parties were needed. I get that some people just want to get on and compete against their mates, but there will be as many who just want to boost and ruin the experience for others. If parties must be enabled, then create a mercenary playlist for GG and while you’re at it, give us one for TDM and Mosh Pit.

  • Michael Montgomery

    And one clan will rule them all. Or better know as the song: I’m all about them clans, bout them clans, no solos.

  • Now everyone’s going to boost…..

  • Haitian Jack

    Thats cool and all, but ive had the game glitch up on me twice so far, where I get stuck on a gun and wont advance to the next one. I had the ASM1 for about 15 kills earlier. When yall gonna fix that?

    • BLBooger

      STFU. Gun game works perfect. You probably just suck

      • Haitian Jack

        Or… The game is broken. Half the time, the gun wont advance, sometimes, you fall off a cliff and dont get demoted. Ive had games where the enemies guns all were advancing but mine was stuck on the pistol. I did a video on how broken and glitchy it is. (Incoming shameless promotion. lol.)
