People act like there are absolutely no tactics you can use to survive a Blackbird.
The BB is my #3 streak in terms of usage (because for so long I ran UAV-CUAV-BB) and trust me, it doesn't win games by itself. There are lots of times I only get a few kills during it. There are lots of times when I die during it. And there are lots of times during an enemy BB that I survived without dying once.
Jammer, CUAV, camp with your team indoors.
I used it because it wouldn't get shot down or nullified by Ghost Pro, not because it was the most insane killstreak. And because it's not a "selfish" killstreak.
It's not broken by itself. It's when you're playing with a cordinating team that it's broken. When you string several of them together, it's a massive advantage.
You're not going to capture or hold domination points when constant BB's are going up along with those BB's providing easy attaintable dogs and choppers
Treyarch was right to make BB's take more points to earn. My team and I really took advantage of that broken ass killstreak --- GT: Arcade Fire87
I jus put down a jammer and me and my not dumb teammates would hang out around it for 30 seconds --- Hadn't he said he wanted only justice? But I couldn't. I could not tell her. It would have been too dark, too dark altogether.
So, what's the cutoff fatclemenza? What is the highest killstreak you let other players get before you shut them down every time time? You only let players get Blackbirds 10 times or less...those were an 8 streak? What about 7? 6? 5? Could people even earn UAVs against you?
Unfortunately, CoD Elite doesn't show how many times a streak has been called against you. What it did say was that I've been killed by the Chopper Gunner 13 times, by the Gunship 2 times and by Dogs 4 times. I don't let the other team put up high streaks.
You could also use Decoy grenades to fight against the Blackbird. The decoys display as directional arrows when a Blackbird is up. --- People are strange, when you're a stranger, Faces look ugly, when you're alone
Not to my knowledge. The focus of the discussion here seems to be about Black Ops where Blackbirds were apparently so common, so that's what I was referring to. I don't think you'll see many VSATs at all now that the requirement is even higher. --- People are strange, when you're a stranger, Faces look ugly, when you're alone
Ghost was only bad in TDM. Flack Jacket+Tacmask combo was just as good if not better in objective game modes, and the RC-XD helped keep ghost from being OP in SnD. --- Mike Dawson never returned to the carnival, ever again.
