    There were around 5 separate instances where i came across 3 or more of the enemy team and didn't have enough time to knife them all.

    I was saddened. :(

    Nobody? Happened to me again twice last night. Maybe it's just the PC version...

    The closest thing to that I can think of that I experience is that occasionally I get 'stuck' on a rock or the corner of a building or something, and it takes a few seconds to get un-stuck. I hate it when that happens.

    That's one of my only gripes with the game. Getting stuck on random shit, or the whole concept of "I can climb up this 80-degree incline no problem, but I can't step over this 6 inch rock". :noway:

    Yes! Like, I'll stop running forward, but his arms are still swinging as if he's still running! The prick!

    Sounds like minor lag, complete with accompanying graphical glitch.

    Frankly, I'm glad some games still have that. I *hate* when I'm playing something like Gears of War, and there's clearly a lag issue but it's one that's completely invisible. Example: On my screen, I have my shotgun pointed at a guy's back, yet he gets a headshot on me without even facing in my direction. Obviously, what's on my screen isn't what's actually happening on the server. If there's lag, I would much prefer that my screen freeze up for a second and do a visual glitch like you're describing, than to be shown something that clearly isn't happening.

    31-1 on Rundown, started off with a killstreak with an M9 no less?

    Sweet.

    I get that too many, just lag :noplease: Nothing you can do. Thats why I try to work a few steps in front of myself. That was you react earlier and don't get caught off guard.

    I remembered why I didn't play this game for ages now: because it does my fucking head in.

    Yeah I think the glitch you are talking about is one that hasn't been fixed. Something to do with care-packages. You call one in and hold onto it or some shit like that, then you super sprint around the map like Super Mario on Chivas Regal and PCP.

    Lame.

    It isn't a glitch. Pull out the care package smoke canister on any setup and you'll move faster. The game was designed that way.

    AND one of the DEFAULT classes in the game (not the custom classes but the ones above you have to use before) has the marathon, lightweight, commando setup designed for sprinting about.

    It's not a hard thing to put 2 and 2 together and come up with using that profile and a care package marker to go really fast.

    Sure it's annoying but it's a valid tactic. After all they are sprinting about with no weapon so what's to stop you shooting the shit out of them?




    And speaking of annoying tactics, i sat in the alcove in the tunnel on "Skidrow" with my commando pro perk on and stabbed anyone that walked by. Just had to hit the button and my guy launches 5 feet and buries the blade in the guys face. :lol:


    Rinse and repeat for the whole team before they started getting wise. Then it was purely a case of run away super fast with marathon and care package. :lol:



    * And for anyone thinking "wow, this guy is an asshole" i only resort to shite tactics when i'm getting my ass handed to me which isn't that often. Plus with the amount of crap this game has thrown at me i'm due a good kill or 7 regardless of how i get them. :lol:

    I think Shikaru is talking about glitch games were people move LIGHTNING fast, not the care package thing (which is very fun by the way).

    I was talking to my brother yesterday when he was playing it and he got placed in a lightning movement lobby, so I convinced him to do the care package running thing and he was moving about twice as fast as everyone else :lol:

    I've decided I'm going to try my hand at Hardcore Search and Destroy for a bit. It'll never be the same as COD4, but I might as well try.

    ^^ Indeed! I had marathon and lightweight on too, which made it quite hard to control. Not heard of the care package thing before.

    I hope Infinity Ward know how much they fucked up with this game.
