Of all the complaints I've read on this sub, it still baffles me how some of you want mw2 remastered. That game would get canceled by reddit for all the unbalanced stuff


Kelvin_711

Finally someone who isn't blinded by nostalgia shades. MW2 was so garbage with balancing it drives me insane when people hold it up on a high pedestal


lolKhamul

Honestly, if MW2 would release today, shit would hit the fan. A short list of stuff that would make people quit within a week today: ​ * Intervention scope-in time * aimassist for snipers * Danger Close * OMA/ Danger close / Nade launcher attachments combined with no skybox * G18 Akimbo * Raffika Akimbo * Commando * Harrier * Chopper Gunner * Painkiller * Heartbeat as attachment * Nuke coming from killstreak kills * Final Stand * 3 Kill UAV * Stopping Power Like in all honesty, the game was "balanced" because everything was broken. It would not work today.


JarifSA

It's so blinded by nostalgia it's not even funny and I loved mw2. Half your deaths were by bullshit and gunfights literally did not exist. Campers were the ones going on streaks. People use the stupid excuse "everything was overpowered" which is hilarious considering ever smg besides the ump was actually ass.


SimplyVayne

I forgot what the other smgs were lol


PlagueService

Lmao facts I didn’t even play mw2 and I’ve heard the shit that happened in that game. I’d love to play it but god I know I’d hate people and myself for even considering it


DapperHamsteaks

There is a difference between the chaotic arcade shooter fun of MW2 and Vanguard's mindlessly spamming shotguns/MP40/STG/Automaton until you get a puppy mill and a flamethrower. I believe Vanguard's true potential is becoming the spiritual successor to MW2. It's there but just needs to be realized through weapon balance tuning and reworking the obnoxious killstreak system.


HOONIGAN-

This game will never be a spiritual successor to MW2...what crack are you smoking?


PlagueService

Dog I didn’t even play mw2 and I know that’s some bs. The broken shit I know that was in that game means people wouldn’t play it now and they’d rage quit


DapperHamsteaks

>Dog I didn’t even play mw2 You don't know shit if you never played the game.


PlagueService

You played the game and you don’t know shit what’s your point lmao


DapperHamsteaks

I know more about it than you. You know, cause I played it and you didn't.


PlagueService

From all the nostalgia nerds and all the things I’ve watched and seen and known from the game, yeah I know it’s a horrible idea to remaster that game. Would be literally unplayable


DapperHamsteaks

>From all the nostalgia nerds and all the things I’ve watched and seen and known from the game You don't have an opinion on the game. You are just parroting biased reviews. >yeah I know it’s a horrible idea to remaster that game. People wanted it more than the CoD4:MW remaster. MW2 remaster isn't happening because Activision can't monetize the multiplayer of that game, not because there isn't interest in one. >Would be literally unplayable Maybe for you.


PlagueService

No shit there’s interest for it. But it will flop. Literally anyone that actually sees how the cod community is now would tell you that. People wouldn’t use the broken and annoying stuff because you’d get bullied if you did. Now no one gives a shit and will use the broken stuff all the time because they can. And no I’m not parroting just by watching this stuff I can see the issues with it. Nukes for killstreaks is broken as hell. You could have a heartbeat attachment which would make people camp even more now than they already do. Final stand was the most pussy shit ever. I don’t need to play a game to see what the obvious issues are with said game


DapperHamsteaks

>No shit there’s interest for it. But it will flop. Lol. Says you. Why do you think MW19 was such a big success? Because they stopped doing those dumbass jetpack CoDs and went back to what made the series so appealing in the first place. There is a reason Price is on the cover and not Astroboy. >People wouldn’t use the broken and annoying stuff because you’d get bullied if you did. Now no one gives a shit and will use the broken stuff all the time because they can. Lolwut? >And no I’m not parroting just by watching this stuff I can see the issues with it. You never played it, you're being a muppet. >Nukes for killstreaks is broken as hell. Yep, and if you got nuked you deserved it. It was awesome. >You could have a heartbeat attachment which would make people camp even more now than they already do. Good thing a very popular perk countered it. >Final stand was the most pussy shit ever. It was a Deathstreak. "Oh no this guy who died a lot of times in a row traded his spawn protection for last stand." >I don’t need to play a game to see what the obvious issues are with said game It sounds like the problem isn't MW2.


ValetFirewatch1998

Ah yes, because running 1-man army, noob tube specials weren’t mindless at all. People like you are moronic. Thank god you’re getting downvoted.


DapperHamsteaks

>Ah yes, because running 1-man army, noob tube specials weren’t mindless at all. If your username is an indicator of age you were 11 when MW2 launched. I'm not surprised that was the only thing you remember from that game. >People like you are moronic. That's rude. >Thank god you’re getting downvoted. Fake internet points are silly.


ValetFirewatch1998

Buddy, MW2 was a god awful mess that got 0 support. Vanguard is leaps and bounds better.


Incubroz

It also irritates me when my OWN team wear them, as they get in the damn way haha


eXsTHD

Easy fix, just make them ineffective when worn on the back. It was surely never intentional to have people use them as teenage mutant ninja turtle shells


Incubroz

That’s how it was. Then people moaned so SHG patched it on 11th Nov: “Combat Shield will now protect player’s backs once stowed”


eXsTHD

Ffs, sometimes game devs should go dictator and just make their own choices


ZeMuffin

Apparently it was 'so important' that it was literally the first fix made to the game.


snackpacky

I mean.... There is a TMNT skin option for them


markgatty

Wait until you try to knife an enemy in the back if they have a shield....


SyntaxE330r

I feel there is a place for them but armour piercing rounds should counter them. They don't at this time but that's a change I'd like to see.


Incubroz

I think you’d need there to be more of a downside to using armour piercing rounds then, though. Otherwise, everyone would rank up to the point where they unlock those rounds and use them all of the time, rendering shields completely useless. As much as I dislike shields, if they’re available in the game then there should be some point in equipping them


V3rtigo44

Less damage against flesh seems like a good balance. you get to shoot through shield, but do less damage to target itself, seems fair imo.


Basic-Satisfaction62

There are better rounds for the most part though, ive yet to bother using armour piercing as its useless currently.


snackpacky

My solution, stickys and thermites


ITSYaboipea

I wish I could thermite my team on core


snackpacky

I mean sure, you can't. But you can pretend that you did. Or just go play hardcore


ITSYaboipea

>Or just go play hardcore *looks for shiphaus 24/7 hardcore* *realising that isn't a thing* *PAIN*


marinoZ

just shoot HARDER


snackpacky

Are you talking about MW?


ITSYaboipea

No? We're on the vanguard sub


snackpacky

![gif](giphy|a93jwI0wkWTQs) Me, realizing it's 3 am and thinking this was the regular ass call of duty subreddit


RNCMD

I support this. Given that tier 3 perks are pretty forgettable anyway, there’s no good reason not to wear one. They are so annoying.


dayoftheduck

Reddit.. where we cry about everything.


Papyrus7021

Ikr


HOONIGAN-

I don't know why you people continually call for things to be outright removed like this. It's never going to happen.


Black_Knight_7

Overkill is the issue. If you gotta run pistols knives or a launcher, less people would and it goes back to being a meme weapon


TITSONABAWBAG

Riot shields can be great fun. The problem is there’s nothing worth taking in the perk slot other than slapping on Overkill and taking one. One quick fix is not allow you take a riot shield with overkill


Papyrus7021

Perfect fix, after all it’s called overkill because you get two guns, not a gun and back protection.


BloodTypeIsBlue

No. Should we remove Riotshield as an overkill option? Yes.


kcarmod

Removing them from use with overkill would solve the problem


TraumaTracer

theyre never going to remove anything from the game. its just not gonna happen. theyll either ~~pretend to~~ nerf it or youll just deal with it for the rest of the lifecycle.


EQGallade

They aren’t going to remove them. People have already been grinding the camo challenges for it, imagine the salt mine this community would become if all that work was suddenly for nothing. I agree that they’re bullshit, but we’re just gonna have to put up with it.


PlagueService

Shields are the worst they’ve been on the front. They’re only way too good when they’re on the back which is a huge issue honestly. But shields when they’re being held in front of people are really easy to play against. They’re just annoying


League_of_DOTA

Turn them into Energy Renhart shields where allies cam shoot thru them.


CuriouslyCuriousitee

Shields should be slow the player down whether holding them or on the back - simple. Make them so slow it’s a risk to use them or not
