Its not that I pitch a tent, but with a sniper you have pull up the scope (which takes longer than any other gun), hold your breath (which others guns you don't have too) and you can't spray your shoots. The other gun classes all have attachments to increase pulling up the sights and moving faster while ADS but not snipers. Plus when you add in the bullet trails that have been added it puts the sniper rifles at a big disadvantage vs any other gun class in the game.
Yeah I kind of find it funny how they said you wouldn't show up on the radar with Ghost unless you sat somewhere for X amount of seconds (Which I thought I heard was 5 back at gamescon.)
But truely if you go Prone as soon as the UAV hits, you're on the map...If you crouch even for one second you are on the map.
I do like how the changes made Ghost be played RIGHT. I.E Used mainly for flanking and getting kills without the worries of being red dot chased but the people who literally sat in corners are the ones who gave Ghost a bad name.
CoD has moved towards Youtubers, if you want to have a voice in a game you'll have to some how manage 300k+ subs.
protip:- shoot down uav's with rocket launcher..... or use black hat and hack them.... or use counter uav.... or shoot them down with your gun....
I had the 2000 Stnger kills Title before anyone I know of, and I had the 5000 Stinger kills Challenge done before anyone I know of (forum members included).
I have a Stinger or Black Hat on every class in this game and I love the free XP from the UAV spam.
I even used my Prestige token to permanantly unlock Scavenger so I can replace them when used.
Your condescending "protip" is wasted on me as well as redundant, because it doesn't work.
If you stand still for a second to use a Rocket, Black Hat, or Gun to destroy a UAV, then you will show up on the mini map.
Why don't you just face it? Ghost is now a perk made for Quickscopers and Rushers rather than purist Snipers and LMG Defenders.
I use an LMG and dont use ghost. Ghost with an LMG is not as good as flak jacket. If the enemy has constant UAV's then you need to consider why they are getting reliable scorestreaks. There should be no more than 5 or so UAV's per game. Shoot down UAV's when you are around teammates. If you are away from your team then you deserve to die.
