imo I dont think it is because I hardly get killed by people using it.
but then again I have never actually put one on a gun myself and I have only ever used it when I picked up somone elses weapon that had it attached.
They put it in the game to combat the campers that have been ruining the game. It's almost impossible to finish a match before the timer runs out which is stupid. With you talking about people seeing you behind curtains and in impossible places leads me to believe you are one of many campers that should NOT be heard.
I dont like target finder, but everybody cries about it saying it is a noob thing, and what about the laser attachment for SMG? An attachment that allows you to kill people without even aiming!
Anyway I think that to balance the TF, it should be a extra atachment to be added to the RD, ACOG or Reflex. Taking two slots, one for the sight and one for the TF:
well the laser attachment doesnt put big red diamonds around all your enemies on the screen.
and when hip firing at such close range you dont really have to aim any way, you still have to aim a little if the enemy is a small distance away from you.
The only class gun that should be capable if the attachment us the LMG as it is actually a plausible attachment for it. SMGs definately not. But Treyarch decided that all guns need all attachments or you will upset the kids.
Also to the topic starter. Your several games to late with the gun that shoots for you. The sentry gun has been available since MW2 =p
When the introduce rail guns is when I quit.
It was not changed because giving terrible players a crutch keeps them paying and playing!
But that makes the difference between "terrible" vs "good". To me the good players, have no issue countering the TF.
