things like this is never going to work because all this is just a bunch of crying the akimbo nerf fine but they nerfed the gun itself rendering it useless unless you use akimbo the tac insert removal face it thats plain whining there camping mommy make it stop sort of thing the deathstreaks is just more crying i'm two kill from a moab ive killed this guy 6 times oh make that seven now lets run over his corpse oh im dead its always grr deathstreaks not grr your own stupidity my suggestion get better not more vocal and removing assault killstreaks from support which for you is anything that a team player can use to kill you i have begun to realize that the COD community is a bunch of whiny children looking to join the people who want the advantage be it with their favorite gun or there killstreaks or whatever just shut up and try doing something worthwhile but for everything else in this article i agree

So people want to protest a game simply because it isn't 100% perfect? Every game for every console has features that some people don't like. Get over your petty little grievances and just enjoy the game!

You think it's bad on Xbox? Try playing it on PC. That's where the shortest end of the stick is. Between the swarm of hackers, no Elite, and (the list goes on). On that day I will not be touching MW3.

oh and i find it unfair that the ones who spent there money for hardened edition of the game just for them to give away some of the features that originally came with the package only for those people they gave them away like founder status, and how we wasted our money on cod elite just for it not to work for a whole 3 months when the game came out. the theater mode is hella bad if you ask me you cant even watch recent clips with your friends anymore like together in one lobby oh an final stand needs to be taken out of the game and dont substitute it for second chance that is the most cheating aspect of the game your loosing so you not only get a chance to fall to the ground and get a kill off the person but if you hide you can get back up and as long as you only get kills while in final stand you can always drop get down kill people while half dead than get back up like you took a piss me off pill and get back up to keep being a baby buffalo. if you suck that bad then play spec ops and try to get your hand eye coordination up from that first than play online or something cause the skill level of some people in the game is just bad on a different level. and i thought that you had to be 17 or older to buy the game when ever im in game chat i swear all i hear is 12 year old squeaky little kids that try to act tuff, they curse talk nasty and be make fun of people and then get recked in the game then call the person who they was originally talking crap to a no life try hard. because there bad. start banning the freaking modders and hackers when they get reported or im going to start stripping on halo which is the worst game i think. cod is my favorite game but i think im going to battle field if this stuff wont get fixed

I'm actually happy with the game. Gonna play double time on April 20. Also from what I've seen, Infinity Ward has responded to almost all the issues that the fans have had in the past. Let's say they actually make these changes cuz of this one video. The 9 of you that liked this page will be satisfied, but then 30 million other people will complain. From the looks of it, Infinity Ward has fine tuned it to a point where everyone can be happy. Oh and as for hackers, I keep reading these articles about how 1000s of accounts get banned every week. I have yet to find any hackers yet, and trust me, I've been looking. I'm a loyal fan of COD, play every day, and am satisfied. Seems like this whole article may have turned out to be a bit of a swing and a miss?? PS: Have the 9 of u that liked this page tried any of the other game modes? That may be an easy solution to your problem.

your one of those camping little qweers who piss everyone off with your fmg9's and gay death streaks they havent fixed anything worth not complaining about. they said they were fixing lag but they didnt, spawn logic got an update but they just made it worse, final stand is complete cheating, fmg9's got like 4 nerfs and it still by far the most over powered gun in the game its the only gun that can take out a juggernaut in a clip or less, the maps are made for campers, they said at cod xp event that they were coming out with new camos and maybe a weapon pack in a different q and a but if you look at the dlc drop calender there only coming out with maps and missions for spec ops, for the people who was intent on resetting there stats keeps getting put back because they added more prestiges which isnt bad for me but there adding another 5 for a total of 20 like for pc but fofr console. boosters, glitchers, modders,, hackers are all being giving unlimited chances to make our lives hell with modded controllers and there qweer jay tags. and the tac inserting boosters who dont even get banned for a good deal like the good old days. glitches personally i think if they didnt make a shitty undone game in the first then there wouldn't be glitchers or exploiters so why ban them for exploiting there dumb mistakes fix the problem and it wouldn't be any need for glitchers

Holy shit, you can't spell, start off your little rant with an immature "insult" which is also misspelled, and that entire paragraph consisted of three sentences... I think it's true, playing video games DOES lower your IQ...

I agree that MW3 has some issues. However, I like the deathstreaks. Sometimes it is a relief when getting your butt kicked. I wish they would make final stand a regular perk. The spawn system has been broke for, well, forever. I think they should nerf the shotguns and sniper rifles as well. Oh, and Activision and Infinity Ward should actually do something about all of the cheaters (people who use aimbots and other forms of hacks). Seriously, these hacks are sold all over the internet and sometimes I think Activision is behind it. I joined a game last night were almost every one on the other team had over 100 kills and you literally could not move after being spawned. These cheaters have presteged several times, so I doubt anyone at Activision or Infinity Ward is paying attention.

Nerf the shotguns? They're already shit. We're talking about MW3 not MW2.
