    my duel b23rs! nooooo

  • Markdg23

    Wow Treyarch is pitiful, they do gun balancing and nerf more shit instead of buffing some shitty weapons so people could actually use them. Only reason they nerfed kap-40 is because the minor league goons aka MLG girls had it banned, treyarch needs to realize we the community give zero fucks about MLG

    • Batman

      Just die idiot. The B23R and KAP-40 are the most OP things in call of duty since the FMG9 Akimbo

      • Markdg23

        Sounds like your just not that good at the game and get out played often so you resort to living on this forum all day complaining, haha “just die” says the virgin named batman your a real winner!

        • virgin power

          You’ve posted 3 times as more as this batman guy in this single thread. There is no way you have fucked anyone, you boring cunt

        • Batman

          You call me a virgin? The one who plays COD the entire day, and uses the name “Stomping Power”?

          And Im Batman, your argument is invalid

      • IFG

        i don’t get why no one understands the reason the pistols are good is cause they cost as much as a primary it makes sense for them to be good

    • Super_Deluxe

      Lol so a Kap-40 and B23R which are secondaries and being more powerful than SMGs sounds right to you? You probably use that highly overpowered Remington as well if you’re serious about that comment.

      • Markdg23

        Kap-40 was more powerful at close quarters than SMGs, but my whole point of the post was to say they need to just buff weapons since the hit detection in the game is awful, then they can decrease damage on certain guns like the MSMC which is still more powerful than Kap, and yes I do use the Remi and no it’s not OP go use the spas then tell me the remi is OP! Not gonna happened besides you just sound like your one of those people who get on and play and complain the entire time about how you can’t get a kill and forget that it’s just a video game.

        • Batman

          The MW2 SPAS was fine. The R870-MCS is a big problem. Because it has a very good range, and the game itself is based on CQC. MW2 was a game that had much more mid range/long range encounters/combat. And shotguns were secondary´s and the hit detection was awesome

      • xx420xx

        nobody uses pistols and shotguns lmao

        • Super_Deluxe

          If you’re serious about what you just said then either you’reon PC wwhich there isn’t a lot of people who play it compared to xbox and PS3 or you just don’t play it enough to realize these problems. I play on Xbox and I see this almost every game I play and sometimes to the point where almost everyone on the other team is using shottis which makes you rage quit especially if they have good reaction time using it. This doesn’t happen a lot in TDM because you’re opponent is at long range most of the time but in close range games like Free for all or Hardpoint is when it gets really annoying. I’ve used that thing a few times with long barrel and you’re basically untouchable at close range. I’d have a K/D over 2 most of the time or somewhere around that. I think the problem isn’t the shotguns and pistols, it’s the long barrel attachment which makes it an instant death with one or two trigger pushes. Remove that attachment and they’ll become normal weapons again.

          • xx420xx

            theres ur problem
            xbox players are mainly shit kids that use snipers and shotguns
            i have 11 days playtime and i’ve been killed by the remington only 672 times

            and thats because i play sharpshooter

  • Technocentrix

    Finally the kap 40 and the B23R are nerfed. It was OP as fuck

    • STFU Whiners

      Pisses me off how people say “OMG that guns OP boo hoo” damn whiners, thats like saying that paintball guns some will be OP! Any bullet kills so stfu babies!

      • Nick

        Usually people that complains about OP Guns are only catered to 1-2 class sets (Sniper Riffles & SMG’s, SMG’s & Assault Riffles, Sniper Riffles & Pistols etc.) The problem is that they never even give other types of guns a try & they complain about them.

      • Batman

        The Pistols in this game are really OP.

        The rest is balanced and I don´t complain.

    • Super_Deluxe

      What’s the point, now everyone will be using the five seven. Another OP pistol.

      • Michael

        It takes skill to use it effectively

      • auto pistols suck

        Auto pisols are a fucking joke. At least you actually have to have a good trigger finger to use the Five Seven

  • .. And once again, No “real issue” are addressed.

    Not suprised, Just disappointed.

    • DanDustEmOff

      I gave up three months ago its just collecting dust now.
      I might see if the host selection makes a difference.

      • Yo

        AT least they’re trying. Why wouldn’t they?

    • thebulky1cometh

      Overpowered pistols are a real issue, but I’m assuming you’re referring to connection issues? It’s the same old story – the problems are so great that they are unable to fix them.

  • coilover2005

    Kap 40 damage reduction (if it’s actually noticeable) was needed, but not one single nerf on the Remington Shotgun??? WOW! No way in hell they can actually see that weapon is properly balanced.

    • They actually needed that a while back, it was really OP when black ops 2 first released!

      • coilover2005

        Yup! What is stopping them from fixing what TRULY needs to be fixed over there? Secondary’s being used as Primary’s and the “Infamous” Remington Primary owning SMG users from mid range. I will never understand how you can get 4 X markers at mid range with a MSMC and a Remington user has enough time to turn around and hip fire you… The coding is just GOD AWFUL and i think down to heart they know it.

        • Markdg23

          The remington got nerfed already and it didn’t need to be nerfed in the first place, if you believe the R-870 is OP then go play MW2 + MW3 and use the spas, model 1887, ksg, or usas and then you will see that the R870 is more fair then previous titles. I know the hit detection sucks in this game and it is crap when you shoot someone 4-6x close range then they turn and shoot you with a shotty and your insta-dead but let’s not sit here and say the R-870 is OP, besides you got to fight fire with fire… (always have a R870 class on stand by.)

          • Batman

            MW2 was a mid/long range game. The range of shotguns is fine. And MW2 doesn´t have the USAS-12

        • coilover2005

          I see what you’re saying but you’re talking about IW titles. They are known to always have OP shotguns. In MW2 and MW3 Shotis were too damn good. Treyarch has not been that way with them in the past. Just like with Quickscoping. Treyarch kind of leaned towards IW style sniping and shoti using in BOPS 2 compared to WAW and BOPS 1. So if you base it off that it is OP but that’s just my opinion. Then again people say the KSG is OP in BOPS 2 but that gun actually takes skill to use. I use the 870 RARELY. If people spam it I gotta use it.

    • xx420xx

      nobody uses shotguns
      you must be on xbox with all the casuals

      • coilover2005

        Nope. PS3 man

        • xx420xx

          you must be an edgy level 55
          i wont prestig bcus ther no point xd

          • coilover2005

            Wow…Wrong again smart ass. Prestige Master and Masters in League as well. I play the game the way it’s supposed to be played… No point in being a lvl 55 forever unless you are a KD whore which doesn’t make you great at the game either. It’s a challenge to Prestige. That’s why people do it.

          • xx420xx

            >kd whore
            you’re retarded

          • coilover2005

            No, You’re just a comment Dick Rider. All you’ve done is come in here and post stupid, uneducated, negative remarks to peoples comments. You need to lay off the Haterade bro! Go spam somewhere else…

          • xx420xx

            hi im an xbox casual i think a ‘kd whore’ is actually a thing

          • coilover2005

            You know what else is a thing? A troll. Go back to your bridge pal. Have a good day

          • xx420xx

            im up to date with all the latest memes lol hahaha trolls i hate trolls hahahhaha xd lol ur a le troll xdxd lelellee

          • SolarPolarBear1

            Do you not know how to capitalize? Or are you just stupid?

    • Someone

      Just because its better than the other shotguns, it doesn’t mean it needs to be nerfed. And if pistols were weak people wouldn’t use them (that would suck too)


    No snipers got a damage or mobility nerf, again. What a joke.

  • nosferatu

    how about nerfing the target finder? at least make a delay before the triangle shows up at least. Do people really need the assistance that bad?

    • Batman

      Reduce the range/or give more recoil to a gun with target finder

    • coilover2005

      Excellent point!

  • Diabetus

    Nerf the snipers and shotguns. Quickscoping is unrealistic and needs to be taken out. Yes haters I can QS. And no I wull not 1v1 you.

    • Batman

      Black Ops II removed the panic knife, but it created the panic snipe

  • Super_Deluxe

    Wtf they still haven’t fixed the issue where revolution and uprising aren’t in the map rotation?! Had to delete both map packs so I can play this stupid game without being forced to play the uprising playlist and ground war only. They fixed this issue on PC but not on Xbox and PS3. Un-fucking-believavle. Whatta joke and a waste of money buying those maps that I can no longer play…

    • Nick

      I have the maps in rotation.

      • Super_Deluxe

        Nevermind it’s been fixed. Thank God.

  • Batman


  • Mitch

    Nerf the god damn LMGs!

  • thebulky1cometh

    Glad to see they actually nerfed the KAP and B23R…anybody actually played after this update? I’m looking forward to, you know, perhaps beating the KAP40 while using the SCAR.

  • InFamous ELiT3

    No offence to Xbox players, but if this type of special treatment, for Microsoft continues, while PS3 is given, watered down versions of COD, then I will convert from being a dedicated COD fan, to a dedicated Crysis fan. I no longer have a desire to play a 2nd rate version of this series. I am the leader of a clan that consist of 50 members, and we all agree that this game has run its course. This is not a complaint, this is simply customer feedback, I’m just letting you know what I intend to do.

  • Korflock

    Another patch without a lag fix?

  • InFamous ELiT3

    Great…..Now the KAP 40 and B23R aren’t good for anything but pistol whipping. Oh, wait you can’t do that on this game. Then I guess they aren’t good for anything. Treyarch You should have left the guns the way they were in the beginning. Now its no longer your design, but a design of a bunch of crying fans. But don’t change it on my account, I will just have to adjust like I always do.

  • hcm

    yeah and it ppl like you who are whiners that ruined the game but it ok that you can quick scope!!!!!!!!

  • InFamous ELiT3

    How hard is it to get an accurate estimation of the range and type of damage that a pistol would be capable of versus an assault rifle, SMG, LMG, or shotgun. I know some of your weapons aren’t real, but I am pretty sure you based them off of real guns. With that being said, why not just base the attributes of your guns off of the real guns that inspired yours.

  • Nick

    They should make every weapon instant kill(even the assault shield) since everyone complaining about Op weapons.

  • Juan Antonio

    anyone getting this hidden Personalize Weapon/Select Reticle, that wont go away. I Cant seem to find or is this for the new camos that are coming next week.

  • Jackpeepot Cp

    Noooooo My Double Blunder Gats Why Why Why !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Batman

      You can still have 2 blundergats I think.

      But you can´t do that trick of using the afterlife while someone hits the box

  • Bob

    Ungh! The game was fine when it first came out. Sure, I had my complaints, but the way it was designed catered to everyone’s strengths, but you just had to find out what guns, perks, etc. exploited that strength. Nerfing guns has gotten to the point where now everyone has exploited the new fad… C4! Next, you’ll probably see people saying the executioner is OP.

  • flamedragon3088 .

    they still havent nerfed the god damn qs’ing, and snipers in general? or fixed the lagg? so what exactly did they fix? 2 pistols? what about the target finder, or the snipers, or the lmgs? i dont understand, treyarch nerfs the smg’s, nerf’s the fal and sum other ar’s, nerfed the remmington in the beginning of the game, but dont touch anything else, well excluding the pistols that they just did. WTF are u guys at treyarch doing are u just catering to the pro mlg fags and not listening to the entire community? and wtf is arms race? we wanted tdm score to be changed to 125 not 150 and y the fuck did u make arms race when u cud’ve just as easily made tdm kill score 125 and leave it at that. treyarch is a fucking joke company.
