SMG+Silencer+Ghost

=easily 50% of the community's preferred class. Game mode doesn't seem to matter either. I admit even I have a class that runs the Vector with ghost and silencer.

I think I see a nerf coming in the near future. Treyarch did the same thing to BLOPS1 when the FAMAS was OP and was what everybody used. They seem to try and promote people using more than one gun or class of weapon by nerfing whatever is OP.

smgs are the weapon of choice for 3/4 the players and half of those players run silenced smgs.

Ghost is pretty much a must have unless you wanna show up on the constant UAVs. Run it on all my classes. This game is all about chasing those radar blips and it really messes people up when their precious UAV doesn't work.

But yeah smgs are way too common for my taste, and they might as well change the name to SMG Ops 2.

I feel in a bit more time we're going to be seeing a hell of a lot of shotgun users. At least from playing a lot of FFA I can say that.

Shotguns are prominent as well, but if the first shot doesn't kill (and sometimes it doesn't), that person is done. Also, shotguns aren't as prominent on larger maps. They are rarely seen in Ground War because of the long lines of sight.

The SMGs in this game are just too good. You are gimping yourself if you aren't using one. Credit to you if you use other guns and do well, but as things stand, SMGs just offer the greatest versatility on virtually all maps.

Ground war happens in all the small maps in the game, where you're going to find a lot of shotties. True about missing the shot and being done though. Time will tell if they need to buff or nerf them.

I stick to Hardcore for a reason. You're less likely to see folks using ghost. Mainly because the UAV is situational.

Not completely true. Ground war doesn't play Hijacked, Carrier, Slums, Cargo, Express, or Standoff. When I play other gametypes (hardpoint, headquartes, KC, TDM) I see a lot more shotguns being used on these maps than on maps like Turbine, Yemen, Drone, etc. which are maps played in Ground War.

However, they are not unheard of, especially the KSG. Maps like Raid and Overflow (also played in Ground War) are great for Shotguns.

Yeah, I was always pretty big on silencers, and I hate showing up on radars when flanking so I planned on using ghost at least in this game (after practically never wearing it in bo). But I used to be a pretty heavy AR user. The ARs aren't bad, but I'm just not feeling like the maps were designed for them at all so I basically only use them in search or on large maps now.
