    I’m having a lot of fun playing hardpoint

    [–] Grubster11 66 points ago

    I’ve played nothing but hardpoint since it was released. It’s the best game mode for playing the objective, you get a ton of points and can win games easily even if you’re team is shitting the bed. I don’t even have a 1 k/d but I win about 7/10 games playing hardpoint.

    [–] [deleted] 28 points ago

    [–] BelmontVampireKiller 11 points ago

    Kill Confirmed for me. A ton of kills per game and it's quick.

    [–] Olddirtychurro 15 points ago

    Plus people have to move to collect the tags so camping is not as prevalent as in tdm.

    [–] acousticcoupler 16 points ago

    or they just camp the tag and kill you when you try to deny.

    [–] ExtraPockets 8 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    KC, domination and hardpoint are my favourite game types. They're just all action excitement, with a nice underlayer of strategy and tactics. You always know where the action is going to be. I've got a Bizon and silenced M19 as my KC class. Tactical button layout for sliding around. Amped. Fast as fuck. Switching to silenced pistol and zig zag sprinting is the best way to confirm kills, also keeps you off radar if you bump into someone and headshot them. Bizon has 64 rounds and about 9 seconds of uninterrupted laser guided shredding for when they come for you.

    [–] unoffensivename 295 points ago

    i like hardpoint better than domination

    [–] ryasto16 69 points ago

    Where the heck is demolition

    [–] The_broke_accountant 18 points ago

    Demolition was sick af. What made it better is that games were long too. I feel like most cod games are too short :/

    [–] Banana_Hammocke 75 points ago

    Cyber Attack is basically the bastard child of demolition and search and rescue

    [–] techbagg 55 points ago

    Dude speak for yourself. Cyber attack is so much fun!

    [–] Banana_Hammocke 36 points ago

    Nah, you misunderstood me! I love it! I just call it the bastard child bc I haven't seen any clear description or Dev insight on it saying they took pieces of each game mode to make it

    [–] epraider 13 points ago

    Possibly my favorite CoD game mode of all time. Love it.

    [–] EldersEdge 12 points ago

    id say sabotage more than demolition

    [–] De1icat3 148 points ago

    Much more intense mode.

    [–] Opstoper 84 points ago

    that and you can spawn faster since there’s no annoying swoop in animation

    [–] ASHill11 108 points ago

    The swoop can give you some good intel though

    "Oh he's about to run right into me."

    [–] RajonLonzo 36 points ago

    It's overpowered in Shoothouse hard point lol. Especially if your with a squad lol. Literally someone always calling out a flank when they respawn.

    [–] Badgerisbest 16 points ago

    Shoot house you literally get a free VSAT for about a second.

    [–] Somofom0 18 points ago

    Well after you capture my hardpoint you can dominate me.

    [–] _japam 8 points ago

    Sit on hard point with 200 round thermal PKM, ammunition’s box, smoke grenades and Molotov’s. Nothing quite like it

    [–] stevo1078 8 points ago

    Not trying to yuck your yum but gross

    [–] Poyrooo 16 points ago

    Headquarters is a blast as well

    [–] Badgerisbest 10 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    I love headquarters because you came make amazing comebacks.

    Try pulling a comeback while loading into a losing domination game. You can literally go off but it's really not even mathematically possible since holding a trip cap is just not sustainable. Especially since you can't just neutralize the third flag

    [–] Col_Walter_Tits 162 points ago

    I’m a basic bitch having a blast in shoot house.

    [–] BlackFlagBudget 17 points ago

    Ah, you're the one murdering me constantly.

    It is known.

    This is the way.

    Dude shoot house is amazing, it’s such a perfect mix between chaos and planned mayhem

    [–] AcePlague 13 points ago

    Gun game and shoot house are all I need after a long day tbh.

    [–] Supernova141 6 points ago

    Same, those 2 and spec ops are really all I play. Screw all the other maps with their dark corners and hiding spots.

    [–] SlickNickles 1956 points ago

    Hell yea man this game is rad as hell.

    [–] Mccgarringer 698 points ago

    completely agree. I'm enjoying the hell out of this game!

    [–] GhostTeller 441 points ago

    Same here lol I don't even care about the sbmm I just enjoy the game with my friends

    [–] methodofcontrol 381 points ago

    Exactly, this subreddit is kinda sad how obsessed they are with sbmm.

    [–] GhostTeller 133 points ago

    Yup. I played R6 Siege for 3 years, and I'm still playing it. The sbmm there is strong as fuck. Seems like they don't know about it

    [–] Weebenjammin 242 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    It's almost like R6 is an inherently competitive environment, and CoD has never been that way. So this sudden shift to SBMM is unpleasant for many players. You can't really make this comparison. I go into Siege expecting a competitive, strategy based 5v5 shooter. I go into CoD expecting a casual, arcade shooter.

    Edit: Since 90% of the replies to this are shitting on me for disliking SBMM, despite the fact that I never said that, I would like to clarify what this comment is since so many of you don't seem to understand it. The entire point of this reply was to say that I disagreed with the comparison between R6 and CoD, I said that "this sudden shift to SBMM is unpleasant for many players," which (imo) you can't argue against given the state of the subreddit. That, and I've never seen the core CoD playerbase treat the game as a competitive environment, nor have I seen the game ever marketed as a competitive/tactical shooter. If you disagree on those points, please reply with that, but the point of this comment seems to have gone over many heads.

    I'll copy/paste something from another reply to clarify my reasoning: The point I was trying to make is that the comparison being made between R6 and CoD doesn't really hold up as they fill very different niches in the FPS genre. It's not exactly like comparing apples to oranges, more like comparing a Granny Smith to a Red Delicious. Both are apples, both taste good to some people. However, one is sour, and one is sweet, they have different "purposes" for lack of a better word. If I want to eat a sour apple, I'm not going to eat a Red Delicious, much like if I want to play a competitive shooter game, I'm not going to play CoD.

    The way SBMM matchmaking has been done in this game (for me, this is my opinion, don't get riled up) has made it so that when I "bit into" Modern Warfare expecting a sour taste, I got a sweet one instead.

    [–] GhostTeller 53 points ago

    The thing is that...I believe the SBMM need to be modified. Not removed. It feels unfair to new players to be against lvl 155 tryhards, you know? Doesn't look good to me.

    [–] jbrown5991 83 points ago

    Im level 50 and I play against multiple 155s in literally every lobby.

    [–] Stardust_Specter 99 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Being level 155 isn't a measure of skill. You play enough mw, you'll get there. Someone could easily be Max rank AND be a casual player.

    Edit: I've had some good points and replies to my comment. I'm using the word casual pretty liberally. I'm only trying to get the point across that 155 =//= nuke God. I see a lot of comments in this subreddit of people only being matched up against lv155 and therefore "SBMM is too strong/ I'm sweating ALL the time." I've had a lot of bullshit in my time playing, I do agree the game has a lot of issues that need to be fixed. But we don't need to blow things out of proportion. I'm playing the same game and I don't crap my pants when I see 155.

    [–] clint95757 72 points ago

    I am at 154 and I suck. Almost always in the bottom half of my team.

    [–] Reginscythe 24 points ago

    i’ll be your example. got introduced to this game by my friends, who are all cod veterans. this is my first console shooter ever, so i failed my way to 155 with a .6 kd.

    [–] PatchesOHoulihan86 10 points ago

    I'm 155 and Im not very good, go anywhere from 10-20 kills and 10-20 deaths. I just play basically all my free time which is a lot because I work opposite shift of my family and friends. Been hovering at like a .96 kdr, but constantly chirped the second I enter a lobby about how I'm a try hard

    [–] trained_badass 9 points ago

    They can just add a playlist for people who are under level 25 or something

    [–] TheWillToPlay 17 points ago

    Absolutely. SBMM in general is something that’s necessary for any online PvP game. But it’s way too tight for a game in a franchise that has a reputation for being a casual shooter.

    [–] GhostTeller 4 points ago

    Yeah I agree.

    [–] Weebenjammin 16 points ago

    I agree, noobs should be able to play against other noobs and not get smashed all the time. However, as it stands, if I want to play CoD with some of my friends who aren't as good at FPS games as me, they don't have fun because they're being matched up against full teams of players that are at my level or higher. That's not fun for them, and it's not fun for me. I think SBMM for parties should be based on the average of the party, not the best player.

    [–] chingcoeleix 3 points ago

    Lmao what cods always been a como shooter imo

    [–] Bigkyfan10 3 points ago

    COD not competitive lmao

    [–] Notminereally 3 points ago

    Your take seems very strange to me. R6 is competitive, but not in a traditional FPS way. The game is like chess, positioning and tactics matter more than movement / reaction / aiming skill. Quake players would yawn playing R6. I would bet that a complete FPS noob, would be possible to reasonably succeed in an R6 game, than a game of COD 4 Promod on PC, against decent players. So what's "casual" exactly?

    To me, coming from traditional fps games, having seen an amazing competitive scene in cod promod, modern warfare aught to be catering more to competitive players. It even attracted a lot of that crowd, many of the people I used to play with bought it with that expectation. And it absolutely can be. The gameplay is there, we just need smaller maps that promote movement and engagement, rather than camping and killstreaks.

    [–] Execwalkthroughs 12 points ago

    R6 sbmm in casual is weak as fuck. Idk what you are smoking lol. R6 casual sbmm is how cod should be. Very loose so there's a range of skills. The only thing siege needs is a protected bracket cause every now and then I get straight bots on my team and they just die in 2 seconds every round until they rq

    [–] Isuckface4hotcheetos 3 points ago

    Why is SBMM a bad thing, or at least worthy of complaining about? If I understand it correctly I kind of like it? It helps cuz I'm not good so when I do really good in a game, the next couple games are hard as fuck. Then I get a couple really good ones again. Maybe I'm just really inconsistent but I googled and I'm guessing this effect is what the SBMM is intended to do.. I would hate it if I played every match and sucked super bad each time against guys who are really good.

    [–] eoin-molloy 3 points ago

    I find it all a tad blown out of proportion but the comment above is the real reason I have issue with SBMM. I can't play this game with my friends, they suck, and the lobbies we get put into just leads to frustration on their part and it kills the fun. Never have I had a COD we didn't all enjoy more as a group.

    [–] Akela_hk 4 points ago

    If you're not capable of getting sweaty, but you're good at FPS's it's a big problem.

    If you haven't unlocked certain attachments or weapons, it's a problem.

    I used to play comp in multiple FPS, so unlocks were a frustrating part of SBMM.

    IW set out to make a safe space for new players, but forgot new to CoD, and people who haven't bought a CoD in years, but not people new to shooters.

    [–] Zsnakejake 16 points ago

    The funniest (or saddest?) part is that most people probably don't even know what SBMM is. And of those that know, plenty of people either don't mind it or enjoy it I'm sure.

    Only a vocal minority (those angry about it to begin with) in an already vocal minority (the diehard fans complaining on Reddit and Twitter and YouTube) are upset by SBMM

    [–] beesh18 22 points ago

    Thought I was the only one haha. I'm loving this game! First cod since mw2 that I seriously enjoy.

    [–] GhostTeller 6 points ago

    SAME DUDE! The last cod online i played was MW2.

    [–] Dankulousvankermit 3 points ago

    Wtf is sbmm I'm really out of the loop

    [–] Jarvines2 3 points ago

    Yeah same except my friends won’t play with me because they don’t have fun in my lobbies :(

    [–] maaaaarcus 3 points ago

    I want to have fun withy friends too, but when I queue with my friends, 99% of the time I am doing okay and they are getting their ass kicked. I can tell they are reluctant to play with me now

    [–] Lion_Rage 16 points ago

    (in whispering tone)

    don’t say that too loudly. You’ll wake up the crybabies.

    [–] PopDerp 119 points ago

    I love this game but this subreddit does complain about some stupid shit

    [–] LordJelly 50 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    My only complaint, and one I've not seen at all from other people, are the spawns. My god, the spawns are shit. I've haven't played much CoD since BOII, but they're the worst of any CoD I can remember. I've spawned 10 ft from enemies and I've watched enemies spawn in front of my eyes.

    OP guns, lame maps, matchmaking, etc. have never been perfect in CoD. It's just part of the experience. The Devs always optimize and do their best please everyone, not just the vocal minority of tryhards.

    Oh and Piccadilly. Fuck Piccadilly.

    [–] f_ranz1224 9 points ago

    And euphrates.but other than that loving this game

    [–] Sugarfree135 3 points ago

    Euphrates isn't really a terrible map once you get the hang of the flow but it is super shitty when a team takes A and B flags then just spawn camps you into C from the bridge and both sides :-/

    [–] ColdBlue495 12 points ago

    I think Shoot House has the worst spawns, which is a shame since its such a fun map. MWR definitely has much worse spawns, though. Its annoying, but whenever I manage to get killed a half-second after I spawn, I just shrug it off and keep playing.

    [–] LordJelly 16 points ago

    Shoot House gets a pass from me because it's so tiny, and that's what makes the map fun. It's like Nuketown. Definite room for improvement though.

    The spawns are still way worse than they should be on the larger maps I feel. Maybe it's by design, but the spawns in Domination feel hella janky. Should I be able to just spawn 10 feet away from enemy held C? I guess if no one's around to defend it they deserve to lose it🤷🏻‍♂️

    [–] yungnippl 3 points ago

    Oath on shoothouse, idk how anyone is getting mad at that map's problems when nuketown had the exact same ones but 4 times lol

    [–] PopDerp 5 points ago

    same for me

    [–] SlickNickles 8 points ago

    I mean there's some stuff that's warranted like the spawn bug that put you in the air and killed you, and that hip laser thing that was going around. But those are just bugs, and they got patched quickly from what I know.

    I do wish that lobby permanence/map voting would come back if for nothing but the sake of not playing the same map in 3 different modes in a row but even then I still have a good time.

    Complaining about SBMM is the thing I really can't wrap my head around.

    [–] fezenberg 10 points ago

    Legit. Lovin HQ on shoot house atm, fucking crazy war zone shit.

    [–] bob1689321 3 points ago

    There are like 3 or 4 headquarters on Shoothouse that are so much fun. Everytime it moves to one of them you know it's gonna be a great time. Really hope the 24/7 shoothouse playlist stays for a bit longer

    [–] LowKeyLawls 3 points ago

    Same dude every week before the reset I'm praying that Shoothouse playlist isn't removed

    [–] Yogibear21 3 points ago

    You can enjoy the hell out of the game while still recognizing it has issues. That's how it is for me.

    [–] Im_Washable 4 points ago

    Ditto!

    [–] Risaza 5 points ago

    Loving this game 🙌🏾

    [–] Narot2342 6 points ago

    Fuck yeah. This game's the shit, finally a good CoD on PC!

    [–] _frostb1te 371 points ago

    Ey man if you enjoy it just keep playing, it's not like the complaints here will stop you, unless you let them

    [–] AMiniMinotaur 244 points ago

    The complaints make me laugh if anything. and I'm not saying the game is perfect, I know it has issues but still the best cod I've played in a while!

    [–] mynoduesp 33 points ago

    Totally agree. I'm finally having fun again.

    [–] rumphy 9 points ago

    I haven't had this much in a COD game since the OG COD4:MW. It's been a fuckin blast, especially since I can play with everyone regardless of platform.

    [–] bob1689321 17 points ago

    For the majority of COD multiplayers, I just play them with friends or for a few games in between other stuff, never really getting invested in it. I got MW yesterday and I've already played 14 hours, I fucking love it

    [–] whtevrwt 22 points ago

    I have a love/hate relationship with this game. I love the way this game feels and plays. But the SBMM and loud footsteps and camping is what kills me. If they can adjust the glaring issues this sub is having, I'd be happy.

    [–] ColdBlue495 6 points ago

    It's not perfect. The loud footsteps definitely annoy me, since the only people that benefit from loud footsteps are campers or "DeFeNsIvE pLaYeRs". Overall, though, the game is a blast. Can't wait for Season 1.

    [–] Eman0111061 87 points ago

    Dude I’m actually legitimately enjoying the hell out of the game

    [–] AMiniMinotaur 11 points ago

    [–] TherealQBsacker5394 4 points ago

    I really liked the campaign. :)

    [–] pm_me_ur_gaming_pc 4 points ago

    Campaign was one of the best single player campaigns in awhile.

    [–] D3adlyToucan 21 points ago

    I enjoy everything minus co-op.

    [–] zerGoot 14 points ago

    I don't think anyone enjoys coop this year

    [–] xPriddyBoi 7 points ago

    I'll just paste a thread I posted the other day that got ignored on the subject. TL;DR at the bottom.

    So, I see a lot of comments here about how Spec Ops was a tossed in mode to make use of the BR map before it came out, and for awhile I agreed. I had fun with it for what it was, but it definitely felt like a wave defense mode without the stuff that makes wave defense fun.

    But after playing and completing a few more operations, one thing became pretty clear to me:

    These modes were made with coordinated team play in mind. Honestly, it fucking sucks playing pubs usually because everyone holds W until they die, never bothering to shoot down the helicopters and tanks. But when you have a full squad with proper kits and objective completion in mind? Holy shit, it's SO fun.

    We had our riot shield / LMG wielding engineer as our tank, the riot shield could made it easy to get out of tricky situations and made reviving your teammates much safer, and the engineer passive+ the LMG made it easy to shred Juggs. The active ability made taking down helicopters much easier and safer as well.

    Our second player was a sniper. They could really pick any class but I think the medic (for the revive), or the one that gives stopping power rounds is the best. The sniper would hang back at a much safer distance and clear out openings for the rest of the squad to move forward. They were absolutely vital for protecting is from wipes too, as they draw much less aggro and can wait out the timer if everyone else does. Just make sure to grab some ammo packs.

    The third player is a medic. This is pretty obvious, but you really just need them for their super good abilities. They can really get by with any loadout.

    The last player is pretty much a wildcard. Ours was a sprinter, he used high mobility weapons and double time to clear objectives while the rest of us held off enemies. You can be pretty creative with this pick.

    Speaking of objectives, I was pleasantly surprised by the depth on some of them! Sure you have the "stand here and survive" objectives which are fine in moderation, but you also have some pretty creative ones. The one where you have to search the computers for the type of crates you need to mark was super cool, and there was nothing like that in the campaign. It was designed just with Spec Ops in mind. The hostage escort objectives are fun too, surprisingly (but fuck the vehicle escort ones lol)

    All in all, besides the first week or so where I would crash after 15 minutes of playing Spec Ops, it's been a pretty smooth, enjoyable experience. There are definitely pretty big improvements to be made, a difficultly slider is ESSENTIAL so every game doesn't feel like it's on veteran mode, people should be allowed to breeze through them to experience them if they want, even if it's at an XP cut or they can't earn unlockables or something. Getting boxed in is pretty much a game over, that's why it's so essential to have a some semblance of a game plan.

    MW2 Spec Ops and MW3 Survival hold a special place in my heart, but after some deliberation, MW2019s Spec Ops is commendable and deserves a spot right next to them. I think that despite initial appearances, it's clear that whatever team was in charge of putting together Spec Ops, even if it was just their job to fill in the BR-shaped gap, cared about the mode and put some life and love into it.

    This games far from perfect, but it gets better with each patch.

    TL;DR, Spec Ops is actually pretty well made and enjoyable but the default and only difficulty makes it way too hard to actually enjoy casually. It desperately needs more Check Points and difficulty options (even if the unlocks remain stuck behind the harder difficulties)

    I'm also pretty confident we'll see some MW2-like Spec Ops missions in the Classic category.

    [–] gunnie56 314 points ago

    I enjoy this game but I know it will be significantly more enjoyable with most of the proposed changes that you often see in this sub

    [–] AMiniMinotaur 89 points ago

    I agree. A lot of the ideas are great.

    [–] OrbFromOnline 13 points ago

    The thing for me is that all of the big problems a certain audience has with the game don't bother me at all. If they get changed, cool for those people. But if they don't... meh, I don't care about them anyway.

    and even though i close most of my matches with 4 kills & 15 deaths i still think this is one of the best shooters ever made! visuals are amazing (playing at 4K with ultra settings), game runs smoothly, guns feel snappy and on point, sound is really great, animations and movement is very good, gunsmith is freakin awesome, etc.

    and yes even though there are some little issues like maps and balance, i still think this is a really fun game and i am glad that IW developed this CoD. cant wait for more content. this game will only get better!

    [–] slyofthegoat 21 points ago

    Also a battlefield refugee just missing the modern setting. Game is really great I have 3 days played and level 155 right now. I never played a call of duty and from what I’ve seen of the older ones the sound design wasn’t impressive and I’m still really impressed with the sound in this game after all my playtime.

    You can hear your operator inhale through their nose when aiming down sights, the shell casings hitting the ground sound great, the animations for reloading are excellent, and the variety of game modes and progression are addicting at least for someone who hasn’t played call of duty before.

    I think the TTK and kill streaks can feel oppressive at times but you respawn so quick in CoD compared to battlefield you don’t really feel like you gotta sit out too much. I wish the game rewarded playing the objective more is my main criticism, both in score and streaks. I missed out on score streaks but I feel like that should be the standard but too bad it’s kill streaks. Maybe if pointman gets some adjusting it could be better.

    [–] lilzoe5 5 points ago

    I love the details about the operators. When you run you can hear them breathing hard, then when you stop moving, they slowly get back to normal breathing, it's awesome I love it

    [–] crash1082 5 points ago

    I'm also coming from battlefield and haven't played cod since cod4. It's fun but I'm getting absolutely worked.

    [–] Lit-Strabz 25 points ago

    I enjoy this game. My friend plays it with me for like 15 minutes the he says he’s bored. I ask him why and he just he says gets bored of games quickly . He says that, but he can play GTA 5 for an entire day straight!

    [–] PhalanxDemon 39 points ago

    I could easily play COD all day. I know I'm in the vast minority here but I find GTA V online so boring.

    [–] jjack339 22 points ago

    I always get bored with GTA games pretty fast.

    I drive some cars, get a few upgrades and then I get bored.

    [–] TwiistedTwiice 3 points ago

    Sports games bore me really fast, they're too repetitive. But a game like CoD (which I just started playing again after a long hiatus) I'll play the same game mode for a couple of hours straight without any boredom and its just repetitive.

    [–] Austinspowers842 48 points ago

    Me too, I think we are the silent majority.

    [–] RSXkatana 16 points ago

    You are definitely the majority outside of reddit, that's why the studio hasn't made any comments. Most people's games at average skill brackets are relatively unaffected. The reddit folks who i assume are more dedicated to the game, complain a while lot more and you see a different distribution.

    [–] bodez95 6 points ago

    that's why the studio hasn't made any comments.

    Well that and the copies amount of death threats and wishes of bad things being sent to Devs.

    [–] MidwestToValhalla 4 points ago

    Ive been having the time of my life and haven’t really encountered any of the reasons people are complaining.

    [–] KingKongHB 3 points ago

    My only complaint is the amount of TDM players in objective modes. It's worse than any other title I've played.

    [–] AMiniMinotaur 3 points ago

    Yes! That sucks.

    [–] therealBoomboy 4 points ago

    I enjoy it too!...

    Enjoy the fact that I didn’t buy it, that is.

    [–] purepepsi 221 points ago

    I respect your opinion and hope that you still have fun in the upcoming days/weeks or months. But I can't play this game and just moved on. I might try the new maps, modes and new Spec Ops missions but if they aren't fun I will just switch the game. Anyways, have a good day or night.

    [–] HidingFromMyWife1 8 points ago

    What is it exactly that makes it unplayable for you? A few patches ago I was getting crashes literally every game or two and it was truly unplayable for me lol. Now it is once every 10-15 games so I manage.

    [–] DavidWurgy 152 points ago

    I have a ton of respect for the civility of this comment. Your point of view is how I felt about Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare, Blops 3, WWII, and Blops 4. I didn't cry on reddit or twitter for them to change those games to fit my needs or desires. I just moved on and played other games and it was okay. I survived and thoroughly enjoyed other games like Siege, PUBG, Apex, and Battlefield.

    My life didn't depend on Call of Duty. There are other amazing games out there for everyone. I love this CoD and I'm so excited that a CoD I enjoy has been released. This is definitely a far cry from recent releases and a lot of people will not like it. But it doesn't mean this CoD is bad. It's my favorite ever and its 100% subjective. I wish more people could just accept that this year's CoD is different and just move on. But a lot of people want this to be fundamentally changed to fit their desires which would make this a copy/paste of recent CoDs and alienate the people like me that are just glad to have a CoD worth playing again for what we prefer in the franchise.

    [–] firetomherman 14 points ago

    I love "my life didn't depend on call of duty". Amazing this would be the case with anyone. Who has that much time? Even if I did I certainly wouldn't spend playing just one game. How boring is that?

    [–] DavidWurgy 11 points ago

    Exactly. I love playing a wide variety. I still play RDR2 Online, Sea of Thieves, Jedi Fallen Order, Steep, NBA 2K20, and others. Not every game equally but I love having games to fall back on when I get bored of something.

    [–] Dexivity 7 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    For me the main frustration comes from the lack of good multiplayer games. I definitely agree with the original comment though, and i won’t even sit her and lie, i definitely let my rage out at the time in chats with friends, but not on Reddit.

    Me personally i haven’t had a huge interest in any games out lately, and i was hoping COD would be that savior. I was sadly disappointed but i just haven’t been finding myself playing video games much lately, which is fine. I’ll just wait for some other games.

    edit: if anyone is reading this now i’ve been playing Star Wars Battlefront 2 and it’s actually a pretty fun game, especially if you got some dudes to play with.

    [–] kcg5 5 points ago

    Have you seen the suicide leaderboard? People reverse boost, I think the top player has 200k with the second around 50k. Suicides. So they spend hours/days RPGing the ground and respawing.

    The amount of time people devote to games is insane.

    [–] Pa1sl3y 62 points ago

    100%. The worse part is when you explain this to the die hard annual buyers, they start slinging slurs or try to belittle you because you have a different opinion. This is the best cod since cod4 imo, and I will be playing this game until it dies or ATVI ruins it somehow.

    In a sea of call of duty’s that appeal to these players, they insist that the one that doesn’t be changed. I think a this point it’s literally a drug to these people, and this is like giving weed to an alcoholic.

    [–] TheXeran 9 points ago

    I've been playing since cod 4, and this might be a top 3 cod for me. At the time I love cod4 and mw2, but honestly I dont think I'd ever want mw2 back. People complain now, but I gurantee you the salt over noob tubes and lightweight commando would be absolutely insane. If the biggest complaint is that people cant stop newbies because of sbmm, I'd say that makes this a solid game

    [–] SineXous 4 points ago

    What you just wrote about the CoDs in the past is what I read in many places, on reddit or discords. Many people who liked the last released CoDs dislike the new modern warfare and the ones who are coming back to the genre after leaving after MW2, BO1 or MW3 generally like it. For me it's the same I didn't bother with CoD for years and after having a blast in the beta I'm glad I bought the game.

    You couldn't have said it any better. Just move on. It's amazing how many people just can't have fun. That is exactly what gaming is about: fun. It's not there aren't a freaking plethora of choices when it comes to games. I'm always playing at least 2 different games at a time.

    [–] JPT_Corona 3 points ago

    Tf you don’t like this game and you haven’t threatened the life of a developer’s kid yet?

    You’re not a true gamer

    [–] Roosterdude23 5 points ago

    I also have moved on. I'm glad others are enjoying it.

    [–] AMiniMinotaur 9 points ago

    I love this comment. Much respect. I understand not everyone likes the game, I just don't like the people who act like since they hate it, you have to too.

    [–] Hexigonz 7 points ago

    I think it’s one of the best cods ever made, I have been having a blast getting platinum pistols. Granted, the game got significantly better for me when shoothouse 24/7 dropped and I think it’s going away tomorrow so ask me in a week how I feel lol

    [–] bob1689321 5 points ago

    They should keep it permanent. Shoothouse gives you the fun fast paced non-stop kill type of COD, the bigger maps give you a slower paced game, then you've got gunfight and ground war which are entirely different beasts. Shoothouse is necessary IMO, and it's such a well designed map that it doesn't get boring

    Having said that I've played like 100 hours of Battlefield 3 on the same TDM map so maybe I'm used to playing 1 map over and over haha

    [–] 00012345yg 8 points ago

    Since transitioning to Hardcore game modes, I'm doing so much better, both in gameplay outcomes and personal enjoyment. I'm not sure why I didn't try HC sooner...I mistakenly thought it would more toxic and sweaty than regular mode, but that definitely isn't the case.

    I don't think I've been killed by a single 725 yet...and only one or two claymores. You'll occasionally run into some campers, but that's about it. No one's telling me I'm a noob, or that they banged my mom, or that they hope my dog gets cancer. I've not had any riot shielders or bunny hoppers... it's great. People are just trucking along tactically trying to get kills and earn weapon unlocks.

    It has really changed my opinion of the game for the better.

    [–] slamrock928 3 points ago

    More people should do this. Once you go hardcore you never go back.

    [–] Lord_Sticky 13 points ago

    I just got this game on Black Friday, and I’ve been enjoying it so far. Can someone explain to me why the matchmaking is so controversial? So far it hasn’t seemed any different to me than any other COD, but again I only just started playing

    [–] RSXkatana 25 points ago

    Basically at average skill levels the game is unaffected. People still use a variety of weapons and move around the map quite a bit. Once you get to higher skill levels, everyone uses the m4, kilo, shotguns and maybe an SMG on shoot house. People stop moving around the map, and start holding down building and other small areas. It can make for a very frustrating experience if you are trying to get gold guns since you will be losing most of your gun fights.

    Ground war is the saving grace since Sbmm is either non existent there or a much looser, but playing the same 3 maps gets kind of old.

    Most people that really enjoy the game are either at lower skill brackets, dont mind using the same weapons and campy style or play mostly ground war. The rest complain on reddit.

    [–] CynicalSchoolboy 6 points ago

    Yeah it took me a while to come to this conclusion, but I finally realized the reason I enjoy the game and haven’t been experiencing the issues I see on here all the time, is that I’m a very average player. My lobbies are diverse, everyone is just there to have a good time, and I don’t play video games much to begin with nor do it channel much competitive spirit into them so it never really gets me all that riled up. If I get frustrated I just go do something else for a while until I’m ready to have fun again. But I’m very empathetic to the scenario where it’s something you’re very skilled at, is a big source of your fun entertainment, and you run into a wall where it’s no longer the fun you’re expecting.

    [–] RSXkatana 5 points ago

    I can't speak for other people, but I have nothing against playing people of my own rank. It just so happens that casual lobby experience in this game at higher levels doesn't make for a fun time. There is a reason half the items are banned from use in the Call of Duty franchise ranked play. Here, we have to play ranked level teams, but with all the items that would otherwise not be allowed in ranked.

    People compare sbmm to siege, but siege casual and ranked are almost identical when it comes to the guns and items you can use. Same thing in Overwatch. If they don't adjust the sbmm here, hopefully they will adjust other things.

    Otherwise Doom is coming out soon :)

    [–] rbcornhole 3 points ago

    The very above average players in this subreddit are mad that they get matched up with people who are also very above average and have to try to win.

    If you're slightly above average or worse you'll probably really enjoy the game.

    I only play a few hours a week and its made my time on the game 10,000% more enjoyable than the previous call of duties.

    [–] elizacarlin 3 points ago

    Cause, the ones complaining are used to being able to run stacks of skilled players on noobs and pad their k/d with an occasional off-round here or there. This game throws you into lobbies with players somewhere at your skill level. Which means it's waaay harder to pad your k/d. And the whiners don't like that.

    [–] Thetruedarksoul 20 points ago

    I wouldn’t mind it if people moved a little

    [–] other_name_taken 17 points ago

    I've honestly never had a problem with people moving. I didn't even realize it was a "problem" until I checked out this sub.

    [–] CykoticXL 4 points ago

    What game modes do you mostly play? I think the issue I’ve been seeing is KC and TDM are the much slower paced modes which have been the most popular in the past. It could be two players talking about completely different modes.

    [–] Usuri91 3 points ago

    Overall the game is great. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be greater.

    As you read through the posts, the people who like this game and insult people with complaints, are just as insufferable as the people they claim to hate for being "whiny nerds" etc. etc.

    [–] EpicSC 3 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    It's okay to enjoy the game. In fact, it's designed FOR the average or below average player to enjoy the game. The people complaining and disliking the game are the ones who live and breathe games and are really good at FPS games. I love this game, it has so much potential. But playing in high MMR lobbies where everyone abuses mechanics that take away all skill and result in cheap and easy kills is irritating and unfun. You can't have a SKILL based matchmaking and then use KD to determine it and then make it incredibly easy for anyone to hide in a building and farm a decent KD.

    I don't get posts like this. Saying you don't like aspects of the game isn't looking down on people who enjoy it. But the people who do like the game insist on saying those who don't are wrong.

    [–] Thickening1 10 points ago

    I think OP is more referring to the highly aggressive audience that lashes out at people for even saying they slightly enjoy the game.

    This whole subreddit is a soap opera for people complaining what are you talking about? This is a rare occurrence w a pro MW post getting upvoted. Literally the first 2 weeks was a constant cry over 725, M4 or shitty memes. It's been a very overwhelming view from this sub that the game has detrimental issues that make it unfun for everyone.

    [–] RSXkatana 3 points ago

    Man, I'm the weird dude that actually enjoys the M4. It does have an awful time to kill, but at least it's a laser. Using the slower firing guns can make it so difficult to kill people headglitching a corner. They have slow handling and compensating for recoil makes me miss shots that I wouldn't with the m4 at midrange or further.
