Black Ops 4.....Is it time to

Recommended Posts

Play? I am a COD enthusiast but the last two incarnations have dented my enthusiasm for the game. 

I hated all the boost jumping wall running in IW, and got WW2 quite late in the day, I have been playing Ghosts and MW remastered recently since I got a monitor, which has enabled me to see! Lol

So, is BO4 worth getting? It seems to be plummeting in price, (not always a good sign) but looking at all the negativity about it in the forums should I just let it pass me by?

Answers on a postcard please, ;)

Here is my 2 cents. I play it and have fun and like the game. But I'm about to contradict myself here. There is really something wrong and off about it. Some nights I'll play it and all of the servers are laggy as hell. I'm currently a 1.5 kd and normally a 1.8-2kd player. I swear hitboxes are off and it's pretty frustrating. All cods have got me pretty pissed at some point. But this one has to be the worst. I would just wait until they release mw2/3 and mw4. Not sure if they are going to release them before mw4 or with it.

I like it. But I also hate it.

It's typical CoD, arrogant developers thinking they know what we want and ignoring what the players say.

Specialists are OP and annoying as hell.

The flinch mechanics that they've implemented (flashing screen, gun-jump, 'total seizure' movement) make it seem like the game is lagging when it isn't.

But if you're a good player (on CoD in general) then you should find it very easy. It's less sweaty now and is turning into a regular Pub-stomp which is nice.

Specialists ruin it for me, I can play for very short bursts and have some great games but if I get hit a few times by Prophets shock mobile or any of the other noob friendly ability's I turn it off and play something else.

It has the potential to be great : only one ability per specialist like in Blops3 with a long timer.

A judder fix, the blops series goes into a meltdown if a players internet is jittering.

Do away with the fog of war.

Let all guns have the possibility to run silencers.

I'm very much enjoying it. Don't play it much but thats mainly coz I'm loving ESO so much.

Specialists don't bother me tbh.

Hate the flinch mechanics. If I'm peppering a guy thats using a sniper, their aim should be all over the place, not managing to one shot me 9/10... last few CoD games have been like that though :(

Defo agree with letting all weapons use a silencer. Some maps its a nightmare playing without one... looking at you Firing Range. I have to use a different setup for that map.

Not experienced this juddering that I've seen so many complain about so can't comment on that.

Haven't had a shoot first die first moment in ages now which is great :D

Yes. Yes. Yes.

I forgot about that, a laggy enemy makes you lag like in BO3.

And I also forgot the ridiculously strong auto-rotation aim-assist, that's some rotten shit.

If you played it more, I guarantee it'll start to bother you.

I'm finding that more than half my deaths are from specialist weapons or equipment and are virtually unavoidable unless you run a complete 'Anti-Specialist' class (which is no fun at all anyway).

And it's not like BO3 where you had to be stomping the enemy just to earn the specialist weapon twice in a match. In BO4 you can get the weapon a few times easily and the equipment is really quick to earn so you probably get that 6+ times in a match. On top of that you can use the thing that lets you earn them even quicker, I reckon you can probably get the specialist weapon 5+ times in a match and the equipment about 10 times with that.

Imagine if all 6 enemies were using that. 30+ specialist noob-streaks in a match of TDM and about 50 specialist equipment streaks. When in BO3, a team might get 10 total in a match. That's horrible.

Totally agree with you both on the suppressors. A longer TTK, many flank routes, rapid movement, some terrible spawns, combined with a lack of suppressors does not add up to something nice.
