I had a nice steady k/d going till I started going for some gold guns. Then it dropped and dropped as I tried to complete various gun challenges. 5 gold guns in and my k/d took a pounding. Same thing happen to anybody else?
I just finished golding the Combat Knife, MK48, MSMC, and Remington 870 the past few nights and my K/D dropped from 2.01 to 1.99.... lol. I already have diamond launchers, and that took a huge hit on my K/D. Getting those gold was a huge pain in the ass.
Awesome guys - thanks for the feedback. My gold guns are MSMC and Mp7 (those 2 were easy), AN-94, Remington (was tough cause I probably went about it the wrong way), and DSR which was the worst because I hadn't used sniper rifles in a cod and it took a lot of getting used to.) Doing the Remington and the DSR are what killed the kdr it went from 1.98 to 1.56 (6th prestige)
So your K/D dropped .40 when you left your comfort zone. That doesn't mean you're now not capable of that 1.9 you had before. Throw on your favorite setup and gun and you're still that same player, right?
If anything, it's just going to have people in the lobby write you off a bit before the match. That isn't a bad thing.
Going to a car show and looking at the minivans is like going to a strip club and looking at the DJ.
