I Think Sniping Hasn't been gimped.... You Just need Skill to Snipe, I have seen Someone Who sniped throughout a full match, and he did Great!

Can someone show me the option to upload to Youtube in Theater mode? I can't find it at all.

I have used the snipers often enough and I have no issues with them... as long as I'm playing on hard core which is common for me. I tried using them in core when I was playing in a party, but the bolt action sniper doesn't even get one hit kills unless you hit them in the head, which I find stupid. Its understandable with the semi-auto snipers, but with the bolt action, by the time you've bolted to hit them with the second shot they're usually gone.

I'm currently working my way through the single player now. Hoping to get it finished at some point today.

My friend plays the 360 version Black Ops but his dad bought him the PS3 Prestige Edition by accident. He copied down the Zombie Map Pack code & returned the PS3 Prestiged Edition for a 360 Prestige Edition. Then he gave me the WaW Zombies Map Pack code.

I'm happy. :)

Thanks Jawdyn, but it's been working fine so far today.

A lot of the things people have been complaining about here are not an issue for me. The spawns haven't been bad, the RC-XDs haven't been too annoying. One thing I don't like is the emblem editor... everything I make in there looks bad when it comes out... don't understand why.

2 hours, 20 minutes playtime and I still haven't played Jungle.

Now that I've gotten some weapons that are usable and I learned the layouts of the maps, things definitely got better. And Nuketown is still my favorite map just because I'm someone who constantly is moving and it's great not having to look for people in a map and fishing out campers everywhere.

Speaking of which, the sheer lack of grenade launchers and camping in this game puts it close to COD4s multiplayer for quality. Spawns still need work though.

On top of this the way I see it, every weapon but sub machine guns take skill to use. You can even out manoeuvre people. If SMG's were removed this would top Vegas 2, coming close to Vegas 1 in my eyes.

Nuketown is already my favorite one, and I think at one point I had played it 5 times in a row which was fun, but also tiring and repetitive. Anyways, if anyone on Xbox Live wants to play, message me on there. GT is Triple 6 Holla.

Wow, you are really dumb, huh? That, or a troll.
It's the same guy who was celebrating that Black Ops wouldn't have Stopping Power like it was going to make a huge difference. Let's just move along now shall we?

It did make a huge difference. When you count bullets per kill anyway.

I don't want anything but the spawns and sub machine guns to change. I found it really hard to play at first which is good! Its not like MW2 that ANYBODY could pick up and (potentially) nuke the game off, since it was that easy to play.

We took a guy who had never played a game since the 90's, spends all his time on his guitar, but he managed to get a nuke on MW2 being a total nubcake at it running around. It doesn't work like that in Black Ops. You need to be precise, if you sprint all the time you will die.

For once I actually feel like I'm thinking about what I'm doing. The shooting is so much more fluent, and when it lags its still (amazingly) playable! You can still get kills, and people aren't half as spongy as they were on MW2.

I still haven't decided if it's worthwhile to prestige. I think I'm going to do it once just because I get the immediate award + it only took me about 3 nights of playing to get where I am. I'm just really not looking forward to getting the pro perks again. Seems like nobody ever drops sentries; I'm going to kick myself in the ass every time I die to a killstreak reward. It'll also be a pain in the ass to have to beg people to take my air drops again but as long as I get sleight of hand done quickly I suppose I'll be alright.

Fuck it, maybe I'll just stay at 50. I'm really not seeing the benefits here. I don't care about being "super cool gold camo man" and beside the custom loadout slots everything else you receive for going through with prestige mode is either frivolous or aesthetic. Hell, I hardly even customized my weapons, save for the AK47 (Fuck I'll miss my AK <3.)

There wasn't really much benefit to cé prestigious (trying to sound French) anyway in the old game other than challenges and titles.

Just do it if you feel you want too, or need a challenge, or anything. Nobodies forcing you to prestige, but since there isn't an exploit to rank up, prestige, actually means something (slightly) in this game. Shows how experienced you are as such, and you get a neat little emblem to prove that.

I know I am once I've sorted out my emblem though. I can just taste that nice little prestige icon now!

I created a specific class for nuketown so it's actually fun now.

Flak Jacket, warloard pro, nade launcher attachment, with mortar strikes killstreak. Always equiped the flak jacket for nuketown or you'll always die from random grenades.

I'm still having this issue with wager matches and zombies. I'm hoping they have an update released some time this week too. There are quite a few things I'm starting to notice that are needing fixed in order to have the multiplayer working at it's best.

I have mixed feelings. The game is pretty good, but pretty bad at the same time.

that's the definition of mixed feeling yes

It doesn't have the same thrill that Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty 4 gave me when playing. It's so bland... the way the game looks, the annoying ways you die from RC cars, etc.

i get cod4 but mw2 had no thrill and had worse annoying ways to die.


Also I was dismayed when I realized that stopping power was taken out.

Theres no need for stopping power anymore.

Yeah, I can't stand this slight lag every single time I play this game. Even when my connection is fine there's this tiny bit of lagging. I've been kicked out of more matches than I've played, and I've spent more time looking for matches than actually being in them. Some patches need to happen soon, I'm just so frustrated with the game right now.

I think you have to record a 30 second clip in a theater match, save it to your file share. go back into theater mode, select that 30 second clip and choose render at the bottom of the screen. I don't what you should do after that, since I've only gotten to that point.

Why choose a nade launcher with warlord? You would be better of choosing warlord with 2 attachments and a china lake or sleight of hand with 1 attachment and a china lake.

Whenever I used a Tactical insertion in mw2, I'd always hide it somewhere, so no one would camp it. It's pretty useless if the enemy figured out that you have it though.

I did hide it, and it's even less noticeable in black ops then mw2

Cod points reset when prestiging. So use the ones you have left on emblems, backgrounds and eblems layers before you prestige. I just lost 40000cp because i didn't use them :(

Well, I'm kind of worried about purchasing Black Ops now.

I've heard of the constant stuttering, and fps lag that multicore CPUs have with Blops, and as much as I want to play this game, it would be a shame to spend $60 on a paper weight. Treyarch seems to be trying to fix the problems surprisingly, so I expect that the problems should be fixed by the end of the month or so. Then again, they could just never fix their broken game.

On the other hand, there are people using dual cores, and running the game at max just fine, with a smooth FPS. So I guess it's sort of luck of the draw.

Basically I'm asking, should I wait till the end of the month or so before I purchase? Has anyone here even gotten Blops for PC? Most of you seem to be 360/PS3 goers.

My specs pass the requirments, but I hear of people with much better setups (quad core CPU, etc) getting stuttering, and low fps. Supposedly this was fixed in a patch, a problem with mutlcore processors, but I'm still skeptical.
