Aaaaaah, Hearthbeat sensor.

I know that people can avoid it with perks but some don't and those that don't... DIE! Mwahahahahahaha.
I still suck compared to the vast majority of players but just unlocking the heartbeat sensor has made this more enjoyable that it already was. I really wish more people would use the UAV instead of just saving up for predator missiles and such. I seem to the one of the rare few that actually use it regularly.

Using the UAV doesn't take away your kill streak you know, use the UAV and one more kill you get a care package etc.

I'm on regularly from about 10.30pm, but stuck with playing with randoms mostly - if anyone here is on at this time, drop me a friend request.

I think what he is saying is that as you only get a choice of three killstreak rewards, a lot of people are choosing predator missiles as their first then two higher ones after that.

Yeah, there seem to be fewer and fewer UAVs going up at the moment. It's kind of annoying when you spawn on the outskirts of a map and have no idea where the action is.

Oh I see, sorry. I'm a traditionalist I stick with the UAV

I find the uav invaluable and will always have it. I chuck them up regularly. Well, as regularly as I get a 3 kill streak anyway!

I didn't know this. Unless I'm doing well (i.e. the opposition are really shit) and confident of going farther without dying, I've been saving them to 'upgrade' for a care package. What a div. :(

It's a shame the Killstreak set-ups aren't attached to classes. Surely it would make sense to do this?

Personally i think the first set of killstreaks are brilliant:
UAV is an instant tangiable help for you and the team
Care package gives you the chance of a nice little earner above what you might have likely got
Predator missile gives you a nice free boom with a bunch of kills.
I never seem to get high enough to use anything past 7 kills and every time i've used a pavelow or gunship it gets shot out of the sky tout suite.

Had my first night of hating this tonight. Just couldn't get on with it, no matter what I tried. Felt like I was playing in treacle or something. I had no coordination, couldn't shoot for shit and just had a miserable couple of hours. I'd suggest taking a break but it's the first time i've played in a couple of days!

I felt exactly the same, man. I was really, really pissed off earlier.

I think if anything kills my love of this game it'll be the lag and general attitude of some of the players, where their own score comes before the team. It's much more noticeable than in Battlefield, which I suspect will become my focus once it's out.

Brilliant. I've not seen one yet but I can just imagine the crying from the other team.

Also, how the hell did you get 25 kills without dying?!? I think my highest is about 7!

I had my killstreak rewards set to Harrier > Chopper Gunner > Nuke

Managed to get a 7 kill streak in a domination game, called in my harriers, the opposition didn't seem interested in taking it out so that got me my chopper gunner. Then i got enough kills in that to get me my nuke!

I set up my killstreaks specifically to get my nuke, now i've got it i'll change them back to something more team beneficial (UAV, emergency airdrop etc)

I'll be honest, I don't think I've ever deliberately gone to a care package. This is wrong, right? Do you get loads of loot or just one thing?

They're a hazardous business, care packages. I'm at my most nervous when I try to open one as you're completely vulnerable - it's great!

Lots of people are using their own care packages as bait and also, moving quickly to the opposition's packages then lying in wait so it's best to choose where you drop them quite carefully - or just dump them wherever you are and risk it for the rush. :eyebrows:

You get one thing per package, except emergency care packages which have four items.

Usually if the care package is on the radar for longer than thirty seconds, it's obvious someone's using it as bait. I tend to creep around, take the guy out and then turn the tables on him, as he'll ALWAYS come back.

I finally got the stealth bomber killstreak last night, and promptly bombed myself.

Does the stealth bomber bomb in a line across the map? I was miles away from where I set the pointer, but the arrow may have been pointing towards me.

Yeah it does. On 360 you use the right stick (iirc) to set the direction of where it bombs from and to.

And I did the exact same thing last night with a Predator. Saw some guy sneaking up on my hiding spot so dropped it on us both. It was totally worth it.

I once saw the entire enemy team trying to reach a care package that was stuck up on a ridge on Quarry. I promptly whipped out the predator and dropped it on the lot of them. :wub:

<_< <_< :o

I saw my first care-package death today. I was lying in wait after just seeing a teammate get gunned down ahead of me. Enemy appears and I line him up in my sights and then SQUISH.

CARE-PACKAGE!!

I was immediately killed as well as I was laughing too much to notice someone come up behind me and knife my spine.

Right, so. First time player to a CoD game of any sort, though not a stranger to multiplayer fps in general. Anyone either willing to give a brief nub rundown of how to get started, what mode to play etc or is there a handy link somewhere? <_<
