Tier 1: flak jacket, lightweight, blind eye (cant stand random killstreak deaths so have to load a class or 2 with it when facing a good team)
Tier 2: scavenger. (I dont notice much of a difference with toughness 90% of the time)
Tier 3: extreme conditioning, engineer.
None of the other perks are really worthwhile for me since i dont notice a significant difference from dexterity/toughness and really dont care about ghost.
This just proves how useless half of the perks are. Instead of nerfing everything, developers should make every aspect competitive. I should feel the need to pick Dead Silence or Awareness, not completely ignore them.
Now playing: MW2 and BF3 Premium. Member of the MW2 master race. #Salute if you are too.
I would agree that these two perks are situational if not completely under-powered. I find that mixing Ex Conditioning with Engineer and a SMG is fairly useful for CTF, while Hardwired is a nice second tier2 perk if you're going for 6 perks.
I personally run Ghost, Scavenger, and Dexterity. If I take a second perk it's usually Blind-eye because I hate Hunterkillers and wish whoever decided those were a good idea would choke on something horrible >:C
But what do you guys think? Does the Hardwired perk needs to have an Anti-VSAT effect? Would that be too OP or not? IMO, it would be OP.
I think an anti-vsat function would be a bit too OP. Maybe an anti MMS function instead of cold-blooded, or protection from Guardians (even though that wouldn't make sense and the only explanation I can think of for it would be "lol a wizard did it")
Most people realized this before the game even came out. Pick 10 is a decent experiment if all of the perks were balanced, but they're just not. Look at Blind Eye, mostly used to dodge hunter killer drones. I rarely saw people use fast hands or hardwired, and maybe saw a handful of cold blooded users. Footsteps are embarrassing, making both dead silence and awareness useless. Extreme conditioning is hardly ever used.
I agree except that cold blooded is the s*** and very underrated.
On a long range class (or on carrier and aftermath) it is almost necessary since it makes such a big difference in you not being spotted. It makes target finders weak sauce. On hardcore mode it is beast since people hesitate to shoot you without a red name. And of course you no longer have to feel like the only one targetred by player controlled scorestreaks.
Great perk IMO
