Of course it’s fine, shotguns have no range but 1 hit, a magnum from six feet is perfectly fine, it’s all about balance, otherwise nobody would use them.

 

It's a secondary weapon you can equip without overkill though, which makes them a bit mad.

If anyone else is trying to unlock the new LMG but finding that it's not tracking correctly it's because YOU have to be near smoke when you kill someone. Not the enemy as the description of the challenge would have you believe.

I have managed 5/15 on the challenge but I have no idea of what counts...googling it suggests all of the options: only you in smoke, only enemy in smoke or both you and the enemy must be in smoke! 

 

So from what you're saying, I'm better off popping a smoke by my feet and then getting kills whilst inside it? Enemies don't need to be in the smoke?

That's what I did yeah. LMG with a thermal, smoke at your feet, hit the deck and hope someone walks in front of you! Rinsed through it on shipment quickly enough although I felt dirty doing it.

Is anyone else finding it a horrible laggy mess since the update?

Yep - been awful for me and it was great before I updated

Is matchmaking painfully slow for people on PS4 or is it just me?

 

Edit : I should have went back a page.

I haven't tried today, but tried Thursday/Friday and the matchmaking is broken since the update. I was getting TDM games when my playlist had just FFA selected. The lobby would load, hang, and then crash out and start again. 

 

I can't be fucked to try and get in touch with them any more on Twitter (or whatever mechanism they chose to start up for the community, and then close down. The official forums where closed a couple of months ago as no one was listening). I've spent a while trying to get them to address the PS4 Pro Fan issue with the unlocked framerate in the menus since the Beta back in September and they don't give a shit. They reply with "clear your console cache", which is the software equivalent of replacing the thermal paste bullshit.

Matchmaking is absolutely fucked on Xbox since the update. Takes upwards of 5-10 minutes to find a game. Fucking rubbish.

Got three old mates together for the first time in years to play this last night...absolute mess which ruined an evening. Laggy, audio would die (we were using crossplay chat) and matchmaking sometimes took 10 mins. We had one game where we were in the last 3 squads and one guy came into a house solo and then disappeared - when he reappeared 3 of us were suddenly dead and my mate panicked and lost the 1v1.

 

I'm completely naive about programming but given how few issues there were prior to the patch (for me at least) and that it's a patch, by nature you would assume most of the code would remain the same so I wonder how it's gone from excellent to a mess within a one week update. Also none of my challenges are tracking which is annoying as I'd spent some time trying to get the new LMG and then it just resets to 0 everytime I log in.

 

Rant over - great game, hope they fix it before it becomes too frustrating to go back to.

I haven't seen many problems on PS4. I always play with crossplay off - not sure if that's helping?

 

Another WZ trio win this morning. I was teamed up with a couple of absolutely ridiculously good French or Belgian guys. I mean, I held my own, and even won it when they were both down at the end, but they had a silly number of kills each. I think I had 5, but they had at least 10 each - i.e. we killed at least 1/6 of the population between us!

Sounds like you are describing a Warzone game? This is the MW thread.

Yeah, it was kind of decided that having a Warzone thread and a MW thread is too fractured, because no-one knows where to post and shit gets missed. Like the patches that change everything should go in here but some people only play Warzone so they might miss something.

The matchmaking and lag at the minute is depressingly hilarious. The matchmaking has picked up a bit for me, it's only a minute or two now.

Yeah, edited my post to make that clear. The WZ thread went into hibernation a while ago, and it does seem a bit pointless separating them. (Maybe @bradigor could merge it into here?)

What's going on?

There seems to be a massive disconnect from the people making the game, vs the people responsible for the updates and patches. They've taken what was the best COD so far, an absolute masterpiece, and completely ruined it, driven the playerbase crazy and made the game progressively worse with each patch. Here's double XP and double weapon XP - only XP isn't registering, the Battlepass isn't progressing and get this - you can't get in a game anyway since we hosed matchmaking. But don't worry, next week we'll force another 30GB patch to fix it.

 

Total mess.

Taking a very long time to find a game of shipment...

 

I can’t believe they’re even doing double xp with a shipment playlist. Altho I’ve missed most of it and apparently the online won’t work.

Yeah the double battle pass doesn’t seem to be working. Takes an hour of shipment grinding to move up one tier.

The battle pass XP is definitely working for me as I'm on 63 with something like 27 days left, which is unheard of before now. Although I'm also pretty sure they stealth* buffed that

The games are fine when I can get in, but it's just * waves hand in air vaguely *

 

 

 

 

*communication is so poor it's probably not been a stealth buff.

1-2 hours for a BP tier when you're playing a boosted grind mode is not great though.

I'm not getting that, I got a level in less than that I think. I'm going to have to watch it progress tonight now.

 

 

Although I have had a revelation that some people already knew about and have talked about in this thread; the career challenges. I totally forgot about them in S2 and while I'm not jonesing for the bizarre emblems they unlock they are xp and keep the game interesting. I kind of hope this game keeps going after the new one comes out because I'm done investing in this shit every year.

Right, I got 3 quarters of a battle pass level with one 1500xp challenge in a game of Domination on Shipment with 33 kills.

 

 

This means precisely dick all.

This is a total joke, why can't we just have a game that actually works?

There is a really 'fun' glitch at the moment whereby in-game voice chat just cuts out after 2-3 minutes of play in Warzone, and doesn't come back until you leave the game or the game finishes.

 

Which would be fine if everyone's on the same platform, but is absolutely gamebreakingly shit if you have some friends on Xbox and some on PS4. 

 

Spent half the games this evening playing in a squad in warzone in silence.

I managed to get into a few games and finally finished off damascus. I completed the riot shield yesterday and started work on the knife this morning, and it's not been too bad all told. The worst thing has been mounted and crouching kills with the assault rifles, purely because of the sheer amount, and some of the shotguns and marksman rifles with no attachments were pretty awful. 3 kills without dying with the riot shield was pretty frustrating, but it's surprising how quickly it comes together once you get into the groove. I only really spent yesterday concentrating on it, and I had it done by teatime. I tried to concentrate on shipment for knife kills, and the last thing was kills while wounded. On shipment you're pretty much gauranteed to be wounded 90% of the time and I got it in about 3 matches, but I was chucking a thermite on the floor and running through it when I could.

 

I hate damascus, I think it looks like shit.

 

I'm going to put it on my launchers, so everyone can see that I've done it and run platinum on everything else.
