What are improvements made to the series since CoD4?

I thought this would be more constructive than the numerous complain topics. So, here's the deal:

1. List one thing (could be a weapon, attachment, perk, customization option, gameplay mechanic etc.) that you think was a positive improvement since CoD4. (I choose 4 because it is the cutoff for what most people are familiar with)

2. Preferably list why you think it was an "improvement"

3. Please avoid broad subjects like "net-coding" and "map design", we're talking specifics here.

I suppose I'll start it out and say that the Trophy system in MW3 was a great improvement, because it made Predator missiles less dominant and provided a great counter to grenade and tac nade spamming.

Throwing knife.

Seriously I loved the throwing knife and suck with the hawk.

More varied ways to play the game. More perks, more streaks, different kinds of weapons. That kind **** is more fun to me than M16/Stopping Power or M40 ACOG.

Hmmmmm.....host migration. I absolutely hated rage quitting hosts because they ended the game for everyone. I sent a ton of hatemail back in those days lol

Great topic btw

Also, I enjoyed being able to assign Streaks to individual classes as opposed to just one set of streaks. There are times when I go into a game with high streaks only to get killed right before I get it.

Moments like that make me wish I had another class with lower streaks set up to improve my performance and help the team win.

I can agree on that. I liked setting lower killstreaks on my sniper and riot shield classes, it kinda sucks that they took that out in BLOPS II.

No deathstreaks of any sort. Martyrdom and Last Stand were basically 1 death-streaks in that game. Now they're gone, and good riddance.
