Any LOGICAL reason why the orbital VSAT should exist?

Just make it vulnerable to getting shot down, (3 missiles) but hard to see. In turn, it could last 10 more seconds.

Cuav is only a counter for the two seconds it takes to shoot it down.

I said benefit. Not provide an unfair advantage.

5 years ago, anything like this would have been looked at as a hack/cheat. Still is in almost EVERY other FPS.

Only reason Treyarch implemented this is because as the player base gets "more casual", they need to be able to get more kills easily to make them feel a little bit better than they actually are.


No. Just stop. If they are so cheap, then why play the game?


I said logical; not incidental.

I play the game for the same reason 80% of the playerbase does. Not cause it's necessarily amazing, but because their friends play it. It's a chain effect really.


Couldn't you just, like, camp when a VSAT comes out? Find a good spot, set up some betties or claymores or shock charges, toss on Tac Mask and Flak Jacket so that if they chuck concussions, frags, or any other grenade at you you live, and just camp out the VSAT. They know just where you are and you know that they are going to be hunting you down, so use the fact that you know that to your advantage and lead them into traps.


First thought that came to my mind. Too bad the majority of this community acts like their fingers will fall off if they have to sit still for a little while and would rather keep running around and lose the game than use a strategy that will give them a better chance of winning. Same goes for Lodestars, VTOLS, etc. They'll spawn in a building and STILL go running outside just to get killed instead of simply waiting it out.


This has to be the first time I have ever seen anyone complain about NOT ENOUGH people camping in a COD game. Don't change community.

VSATs are pretty much unattainable, to what I would estimate as, 60% of this player base. Beyond that, it's luck for a lot of people, and the ones who are good and/or roll in a team still don't get them a majority of the time.

Quit cry-babying, settle down, don't hold LS forward like your life depends on it, and have map awareness.

Or just use a CUAV. Not many people bother taking things down anyway.

Someone just got smashed by a party running VSAT.

I don't use them. They are cheap. I set my killstreaks to something that will benefit my team. Lightning strike, AGR, EMP.


I'm not one of those who will complaing about the quickness of the Lightning Strike, but you call the VSAT cheap, but will happily use something that will kill a victim before they are warned. You will use a score streak that you can leave unattended that will get kills for you. And you will also use a score streak which will null an enemies HUD and bugger up whatever electronics they have AND remove whatever score streaks they have in the air without having to whip out the usual means of anti-air?

The majority of kill/score streaks in essense are cheap. XD


This.

Also, you contradict yourself. First, you say that the VSAT is cheap, which implies it's very useful. Then, you imply that VSAT isn't beneficial? What?

How is it idiotic? Explain that to me. How is it in any way different?

I think TC abandoned this topic.


I think he was tired of being wrong.


That's your opinion. You can't call ones opinion wrong. Mine is logical.

I haven't insulted anyone here. I haven't insulted your opinions or anyone's intelligence. Yet still, forum kids must continuously insult me. I simply don't understand. I stated my opinion based on past knowledge that spans longer the most of you have been gaming. 5-10 years ago, anything that put the enemies exact up to date location on your radar would be considered cheating. Still holds the same in pretty much every other FPS.
