Spotting Crutches

#1I_Got_RhythmPosted 3/31/2013 1:12:06 AM
So I was just in a game of Kill Confirmed on Hijacked, unfortunately leveling my M27, and a guy on the opposing team was running around with an R870. After getting killed by him I immediately thought to myself, "man, it must be nice to just run around with an R870 on this map like that, too bad I'm so bent on golding everything. I bet that guy has triple my score, I know I would". So I went to check his score, of course, and noticed his was less than half mine AND he was performing in the lower tier of his team. I even found myself winning CQ battles against him...

Stuff like that just makes me think about how often I run into players that require crutches to do well at all; I mean, that kid NEEDS that gun for any ounce of hope.

So how about you guys? Any sightings that would make a better man cringe? And yeah, we all know target finder is gonna be a hit, but go for it, I can never read enough target finder hate.

The funny part is when you run across MMS sights on shotguns. Never understood the fascination with that. You have a shotgun so clearing a corner camper or something while going in a room should be a piece of cake. MMS sight doesn't center very well either on shotguns.

I say using the M27 is a crutch, as it has little to no recoil... why not use a gun that has higher recoil?

Now it depends on how good the enemy players are , but I assure you it helps.

Because using the AR with the lowest damage is gimping you, regardless of recoil?

Yeah, I have a tough time in Hijacked. Half the time I play that map, everyone is running shotguns and hipfiring everywhere. :(

Funny how you say you are worried about maxing your weapon, but how do you know he ain't doing the same thing? Why don't people think of that?

The 870 is the 1 k/d player's weapon of choice

Sometimes, the KSG just says 'no, you cannot kill this man because I will not allow it' though.

Near launch I didn't really have any problem with the R870, though that's because nobody really used it. But there has been a giant surge in people using things other than SMGs lately, and they all flock to the easiest setups. The R870 still isn't a huge problem, but even one person using it on Hijacked with a functioning nervous system is a nightmare. Because now you have to revolve your playstyle around avoiding 99% of the map or risk getting OSK out of nowhere.
