Same thing with every COD. I can kill people with the most "OP" weps with a pistol because I make better decisions.

Well I didn't really know that, the reason I ask is because well 1... I'm interested in picking the game up and 2 I always here a crap loud of comments that say if you have to bigger gun than yours odds of winner are greatly increased.

If this is a game that requires you to get the drop on an enemy(like the surprise commercial) or taking your decisions into mind than I'll pick this up.

It's more about map awareness, and your connection than anything else.

Also guns, since at lower lvls/ no attachments unlocked you're at quite a disadvantage.

I've never really considered COD a "skillful" game, but that's me. Sure, I've seen what appears to be crazy skill by some, or extremely dumb luck. I guess that could qualify as "skill."

I agree that map awareness plays a key part in being a good player, knowing routes and anticipating spawn changes etc.

So it really doesn't balance out if your a low level? I mean I know that halo 4 started stuff like loadouts and ordnance drops(care packages) but it always felt balanced in a way that a lvl 16 person can take of a level 130 person if they know what there doing.

I've seen youtube vids of a girl(no hate for female gamers) plow though lower level people cause she was a higher level and had a better weapon.

No some of the good guns are unlocked 4-22, lower level aren't completely screwed at all. It's more knowing the maps and not being stuck in the open than anything. Attachments or specific guns and perks do play a large roll, but at the same time, you can get killstreaks with just a gun, tacticals and lethal grenades if you play the map right.
