Boring. Poor Gun Balance. Poor Perk Balance. Terrible Lag. Boring. Terrible Hit Detection. Introduced Lag Comp. Introduced hardcore dark corner camping with stealth perks. 2nd Chance Did I mention it was boring?
Also, it was SO BORING.
It also was not rewarding, fun, or interesting. It looked cool, worked well in local matches, but anything not splitscreened/LAN'd was a BORING nightmare. But the SPAS was pretty sweet...
This is pretty accurate. It also had something which BO2 also has, and which I absolutely hate, which is audible enemies!! If I'm sneaking around to flank the enemy, the last thing I want to do is shout to anyone in earshot that there's a UAV incoming or C4 or whatever. STFU you stupid moron!!!
Also how come I can hear clearly what's being shouted but not footsteps? Should be the other way round.
Eh, I loved running with the MP5 in COD4 and MW2. When the closest thing to that in BO1 is the Aug, then you know you have a problem. SMG's as a class were pretty bad in BO1.
As someone who used everything, but mostly SMGs, I strongly disagree. Although if you're strictly talking about the guns themselves without perks or attachments, then I can certainly understand where you're coming from.
The closest thing to a Stopping Power MP5 in BO1 was an MP5k or 74u with Rapid Fire, and it was actually pretty close.
