I would classify these players as bad. K/D does not matter but when you are a level 40 or above for example and you are going 0-18 with helicopters coming one after another and UAVs up constantly you would think they would try and do something but no,
they continue to run mindlessly around getting killed over and over by aerial killstreaks. I hate joining games late and see half the team doing this. Make one custom class and never change it. Blind Eye Assassin Stinger secondary SAM turrets and Predator
missiles also take out choppers It's not difficult, you get more points than killing someone, and you help yourself and your team.
I didn't make this to berate players I made it to bring awareness. Of course I'm sure everyone on the forums already knows how to take something out. I just don't understand why people that are not doing so good make things even worse for themselves by not
taking out a helicopter and instead ignore it and continue to die by it. And to that Excel guy, when I join a match from the beginning of course I take out the stuff myself and you have no idea how I play the game. But I joined a match of HQ, on the losing
team obviously down 390-60 and the entire enemy team camping the HQ location, two guys on my team were 0-20+ and there was a pave low up, got killed by it, respawned and took it down, then came out a chopper and a few uavs took those out, next comes osprey
gunner, I died by it 5 times while taking it down, and I'm pretty sure there were more. Meanwhile in the 10 minutes left in the match those two guys just kept rushing in and getting killed over and over and over again without even attempting to shoot anything
down. It just boggles my mind.
I consider myself more of an aggressive camper with an LMG, in that I like to patrol an area with at least 2 or 3 approaches. I shoot down anything I can see. I'll trade a death for two kills all day. I run support class with items to help the team. I
play TDM only.
When I started playing COD 4, I was awful. And I mean AWFUL.
I remember having one match like 2 weeks into me owning the game where I went 17-12, and I was so excited, because it was by far the best game I had registered up to that point.
I eventually decided I would minimalize my poor play by being SUPER stingy about dying so I wouldn't bring my friends down(who were better than me).
So for months I went 7-1, 10-2, 5-0 etc. etc., and always shot down the Helicopters.
I was a total campfest, but that was where my skill level was at, so that is how I played to get by.
In particular I tried to help by targeting certain sections of the map, that I knew were important strategic areas, and making it difficult for the other team to feel comfortable there.
Eventually I got more and more comfortable doing different things and using other weapons, so I evolved into the player I am now. (PRETTY DAMN GOOD!) Heh, J/k. I am a good player, but not one of those Elite players.
I guess I would say in short, Play to your strengths until you get better.
There is a big difference between camping and using the shot guns. You could use an assault rifle with silencer and assassin and try to advance through the parts of the map that only have 1 or 2 sight lines.
But, always shoot down killstreaks if you are having a bad match. It really makes up for you negative score, no matter who you are.
Would you rather for me to semi-camp, moving around a bit, not going big negative, and shooting down all the air support, or running around with a shotgun, going major negative, and shooting down the air support?
I tried the shotgun thing last night; it just doesn't work for me. Guess I'm too old and tired.
I've never understood it either. I mean, it can't be helped if you're not running Blind Eye and you get spawned outside over and over with no close building to take cover inside you're just gonna get shot. But when people knowingly just run out to be a hero
to get killed for nothing over and over and not change their approach one bit is a little disturbed. To be honest it only effects a couple of game types that rely on K/D ration to win.
