      Sniper Rifles

      Improved sniper rifle usage.
      No aim assist for any sniper rifle.
      Less sway


      No longer just perk 1 chooses the players appearance
      Appearance is a combination of all perks and type of Pointstreak being used.


      Larger emphasis on hardcore than ever before
      No grenade launchers
      Only vehicle guided rocket launchers permitted

      Perk System 2.0

      The Perk Pro system has been upgraded
      There is now 2 options a perk can advance to.
      Both require different challenges to unlock
      Once the desired Pro version is unlocked, the player can select that as their "Perk Pro".
      Once selected, the only way to choose the other option is by entering prestige mode.
      For example Perk slot 1 has the perk called Speed
      Speed - Reduces the time taken to aim down the sight. Pro imilar to the behaviour seen in the MW3 Spec Ops survival

      The post is empty. Anyway, from what I heard, Black Ops 2 will have multiplayer maps similar to BO and not MW3.

      I've seen an ad to news for Black Ops 2 on Steam but I never clicked it, but I know it's coming.
      I've played Black Ops for PS3 and it was fun. I hope for multiplayer gameplay, they bring back the small "playground" map.

      Nuketown was really fun to play! High expectations from BO2! ;)

      Yeah, that's the name of the map. It's small and the perfect map to kill people with a shotgun (the weapon I'm best at with Black Ops for the PS3).

      It certainly does become a fast paced game on Nuketown :) I love it when they do Nuketown 24/7 on a double XP weekend. That is fun :)
    8. Marc

      Marc Crazy Dave FTW!

      Yeah. You can get a lot of kills easily if you have the right weapon (even short range that does good damage will do)

      Black Ops is almost dead now on PC. very less servers and the amount of players has also decreased. I really hope BO2 has dedicated servers! :)

      Me too. On Steam I see MW3 players that I've added, played Black Ops singleplayer & multiplayer every once in a while (not as much as MW3, of course).
      I'm expecting everyone from MW3 to move over to BO2 in the early stages for multiplayer since there will be no hacks available, :)

      Ikram45 Getting There

      Ofcourse. Anyways, how is MW3 going so far for you, Marc? Have you started the prestige yet?

      Check out one of the videos of my gameplay in my vault and you'll see.

      Well, it certainly looks like you have improved quite a lot! :) Are you going to buy Black Ops 2 on PC ? :)
    14. Marc

      Marc Crazy Dave FTW!

      Did you really look at one of my videos? (answer carefully cause I'll ask questions, haha)
      Anyway, yes - I'm going to buy Black Ops 2 ( I told you this on Steam already o_O )
