BO1 started the trend of noticeably worse lag issues than the previous CoD games, had the most clone weapons by a long shot while STILL managing to have badly balanced weapons (FAMAUG/pre-patched AK-74u), worst selection of LMGs, thought playlist specific challenges for perks was a good idea, had the most boring method of unlocking stuff, mostly boring maps, and worst of all: introduced Nuketown which completely poisoned the series in terms of map making from then on out due to all of the stupid little kids flocking to it.
BO1 is bad.
Blops had the best m60 of any CoD, and that sweet stoner63.
BO1 had one excellent LMG (M60), an AR with more bullets than normal in exchange for bad movement speed (Stoner), and then two LMGs you would never in your right mind try to use. (The other two).
That's basically 1.5 LMGs. You certainly didn't play the Stoner like an LMG.
And so begins a tale of vengeance and betrayal. Destiny by sinner sought. Tragedy by power wrought. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
