Don't worry UAV's don't bite. Perks just aren't as important as they used to be. Engineer is the only must have perk for me. Why would you trade an amazing pistol for a launcher anyway. I've been considering using tactician so I can carry four black hats.
edit: You're right I can only carry two black hat. But I can still overkill and carry two shotguns or two snipers with fast hands. Don't like my shotgun, here it's another shotgun. Hooray for the impractical.

Just got out of a match of HC TDM in which the UAV was spammed. I switched to a Rocket because the UAVs have been getting to me lately. People pre-firing around corners gets old.
EVERY TIME I went to take the rocket out and locate the UAV I was shot at or killed... including several times when I had just spawned.
That is a problem.
We have known for a while that the ghost change was going to have a negative impact on traditional hardscope snipers, especially since 99% of snipers carry a secondary pistol/gun and not a launcher simply because well, close combat happens. Personally I have always felt the UAV should be a much higher streak, but Treyarch elected to favor UAV spam, a failure in my eyes. I'm prolly not even going to bother with sniper rifles in BO2.
