Now if it were a dynamic leveling system that would be different. But basically its just a timer.

This is the first time I ever purchased a Battlepass of any sort. And why? I really actually enjoy this game.
I’m under level 40, and normally play with a group of 155’s. And what’s funny is, the game is pretty balanced. I often win matches or am usually in the top 3. And 99% of the time the people are much higher levels than me. But that’s because they have more time invested than I do.

but my point is, the “better” weapons and options are available at the higher levels, but they do not make much of a difference in my experience when I can win with 1/3 of their available setups.
That is how levels have always worked in online shooters. They're meaningless as it isn't a single player RPG. What does matter are weapon unlocks. Some weapons are terrible until you get certain unlocks at level 33-40 or so. Typically it isn't too hard but it varies from weapon to weapon. If you only care about using 1 or 2 weapons it isn't hard to get them leveled up though.

Right. But my point was the weapon unlocks do not seem to help, or the weapons are balanced enough new players can join and hang if they have some skill.

It has been a while since a COD interested me enough to pick it up.

I've played to level 26 or so and watched many streams. It is one of the best COD games in a long time.

Is it perfect? No, but at least you don't have to buy the battle pass or other DLC on top of the base game to play everything. Personally, skins aren't important to me, so I'm happy to just play without the Battle pass stuff. I used to have to drop $130-$140 CAD on COD to make sure I got the DLC maps and guns... That was terrible.

Some of the weapons are pretty bad without the right unlocks. Double weapon XP weekends are ideal for getting those hard to get attachments though.

Tavor / RAM-7 was terrible until you get to level 33 or so. I needed to get the right suppressor or extended barrel otherwise it didn't do enough damage.

So my friend group picked this up. The battlepass is cosmetic / stat tracking only correct? The base game gets you future map releases,etc?

MP5 and M4 were fine. M4 I had found too weak, even in HC recently. Was taking far too long to kill. MCX was fine with the right attachments, but maybe in regular modes it was bad. M4 I found bad even in the regular mode. I mainly use the SCAR and AK because the M4 did so little damage in Warfare.

I find using the RPG has a couple benefits in shipment, potentially blows up multiple people, and causes them to rage at the same time!

I wish a handgun only mode existed for all maps. BF4 used to have some handgun only servers and it was a blast.
Handgun only TDM hardcore would be fun. There used to be such a server in BF4 and I liked it, but they didn't last too long. Actually wouldn't mind if it was an official mode. Never use pistols in this game though, but I would if there was such a mode.

Im glad i went for the sale as well. Great game! Shipment is addictive and hilarious. If i had a christmas crash 24/7 server then that would be cherry! :ROFLMAO:

You must have been at the tail end of BF4. Pistol only servers were around from shortly after launch and died out only once BF1 came out. Pistol Only were most of my favorite servers and there were multiple variations of them, but not all ran TDM if this is all you were looking to play. Many ran in domination and a few with Oblivion.

I've been enjoying the hell out of COD MW but every match I join I end up with a 5-10 second system hang about 2 minutes into the match and it's even odds whether or not it times me out from the match. Annoying as hell

Modern Warfare Test Reveals Console Players Have Advantage Over PC

A test by Reddit user u/J3RRY__, who was good enough to record video evidence of their finding, compared the turn speed of a player affected by a stun grenade in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare when using a controller as opposed to a mouse and keyboard...the test showed that a controller, obviously used more often by a Console player, allowed a player to turn around twice as fast as a mouse...a further test showed that even upping the mouse's DPI did not do much to alleviate the issue, not shaving remotely enough time off of the turn to be comparable...

Will look into the video, I assume there is a longer version. Trying the pump action shotgun. Is it me or does this thing just suck? Getting some better attachments but it seems worse than the double barrel thing people use. Maybe it gets better, just got a new barrel unlocked for it so will try that out.

I thought controller players were generally not allowed to play with KBM players, so what's the big deal?
If you have crossplay enable, which i believe is default, then there's no restrictions. I get matched up with random mixes of consoloes and BN users with KBM and controller icons.

But i believe there are options to choose KBM only and controller only lobbies if you want.

Hmmm.. I play on PS4 and I've literally never once come across a KBM player. I don't think it's default enabled to allow matchmaking with KBM players (but it would make sense that KBM players would be default both for obvious reasons.)

It's entirely possible it's not the default and I clicked a box that i don't remember when i started. Or like you suggest possibly different defaults depending on setup.

Anyone have any good setups for the pump action shotgun? I've done okay with it, but in general I just don't do good with it. But I find it fun to use so want to continue playing around with it. Finally got some unlocks for the FAL and now it isn't that bad. The first 20-24 levels were horrible but once you get the first barrel and the suppressor it works well enough.

This is the best loadout i've tried for the Model 680. give it a shot, or something similar if you don't have these exact attachments unlocked yet.

Well looks like they screwed up the game big time. Feels like something entirely different. Damage is entirely off, everything requires many more hits. Return of the "super bullets". Performance has gone down the shitter, lots of low frame rates throughout gameplay. It simply isn't a smooth experience anymore. The launch game had similar performance with RTX on than it does now with it off. The whole aiming, killing and shooting mechanic is so different from even 2 weeks ago I don't know what the hell game this is supposed to be. Not what they advertised in the public beta, that is for sure. And certainly not what we were playing as little a 2 weeks ago.

Recent patches were messing up the game, the last one ruined it. Game is pretty much dead as is unless they can un-fuck it quickly.
