The way the announcers say "Lightning strike inbound" is BOGUS

It's so bland, there's no feeling behind it!

Like in Modern Warfare 2, when the enemy team calls in an AC-130 and they just ****ing scream out "ENEMY AC-130 ABOVE!!" and then the first bombshell comes howling in; that's sheer ****ing terror and the proper way to do it

It would also help if he announced it BEFORE it struck.

I miss when the announcers in MW2 said anything about enemy killstreaks. Especially the AC-130. **** just got real when you heard "ENEMY AC-130 ABOVE!!!!!"

I can't say for MW3, but yeah, BO2 announcers definitely suck. Even the Lodestar and Warthog's announcements. Get some feels bro.

I miss the MW2 ones, and Ice Cube.

THIS.

"Heads up--

*dies to Lightning Strike 4 seconds after spawning*

--Lightning Strike inbound."

I mean, Jesus I know that Mortar Team was drastically underpowered because of how long it took to actually hit, but they totally skewed it the other way now. It is literally impossible to dodge the first 2 hits of the LS because they're landing before it's even announced that it's happening. You can avoid the third if and only if you're quick and very near a building.

Also the Lodestar is the AC130 on steroids. It's as if they sat around a table and someone drunkenly said "Guys, what if, like, the AC130 could just fire continuously?" And then high-fives were exchanged all around because that's totally what the game needed.

I've had Blind Eye and still died every time I spawned because he's just exploderating all over the map and spawn points.

Trash game is trash.

"We ARE.....winning this fight." So bland.

Might as well be "We ARE....currently ahead in points during this current game of Call Of Duty..."

I agree.. inbound means the event is arriving... when obviously its already past-tense.
