Does anyone use Black Hat? Or the AN-94?

I don't use Black Hat. Find them kind of useless as the enemy is notified of you hacking their equipment immediately.


They're also notified when you destroy their equipment with EMP grenades, but that won't stop me from using them.

I used to be an avid black hat user but I've found that the EMP grenade is far better. You don't really have to aim it, you just throw it in an area and watch the points rack up. EMP grenades are fantastic on Hijacked. Just throw them at either of the buildings and you're likely to come up with 100+ points every time through destroyed equipment and assists. Black hats have the advantage of being able to take down air support but that isn't an issue for me at all.

Yeah, but I'd rather toss an EMP grenade randomly around the map and get EMP assists/equipment destroys all day than hack their equipment only for them to turn around and destroy/hack it back. Just my opinion.

AN-94 is amazing.


If im hacking there stuff and they know about it...it doesn't matter cuz im most likely done hacking by the time they get to me, if its a Sentry Gun or something on the ground. But if its a jet or helicopter i could be anywhere on the map and they wouldn't know where im hacking from.

Plus i like how i hack black hat through walls at a sentry gun. You just have to aim at the sentry gun after you see it and it will hack!. Thats amazing.

I havent used the EMP grenades though, so they might be more useful...ill find out tonight.

You mean to say "Does anyone not use the Black Hat and AN-94?" right?

The enemy doesn't know you're hacking their equipment until after the process is finished. Throwing an EMP grenade at a Sentry Gun or Guardian is a lot easier than pointing a Black Hat PDA at it for 2 or 3 seconds. On top of destroying the scorestreak, you probably affected an enemy or two and might get some assists out of it. The scoring potential is so much higher for EMP grenades.

I really like using them to clear buildings. I'll throw one into the middle of the first floor. If I don't get a hitmarker, I know the building is clear; if I get a hitmarker, I know I'll at least get a 50-point assist out of it.

As someone else posted, I don't use the Black Hat because the announcer tells the enemy when their equipment has been hacked, making it useless. You can't use it to sneak up on enemies, nor can you kill people with their own equipment. The Black Hat will only give away your position and most of the time the enemy will destroy their own hacked equipment for points and to make it so that nobody on their team gets hurt from it.

Emps can take out multiple equipment at once, and it's much safer to take out scorestreaks because you don't have to wait like two or three seconds exposed to the enemy. Also, the emp blast radius is huge, so you can get random emp assists for chucking them into high traffic areas (especially useful on hijacked). The emp actually does a small amount of damage to enemies, sometimes actually killing them if they're severely injured. It takes away enemy's mini-map and renders the scope they have on their gun useless (most significant on target finder users) for an entire 14 seconds.

You can get "stuck" explosives off of you if you emp yourself fast enough. You can also emp yourself to remove the effects of concussions, flash charges, and even other emps.
