Yeah, target finders are definitely nooby, but whatever, they're in the game. I have a class set up with the target finder on an AR for big maps; definitely the lazy/noob approach.
I have a couple of classes, where the only difference between another class I have is that I switch my 2nd tier perk to Cold Blooded. If I see the Killcam, and it's some guy just being lazy/nooby with the target finder, I switch classes.
Yeah, Target Finder will still change the reticule to a different color, but it's not obvious like the red diamond. (shouldn't even change colors, IMO, but oh well.)
That's why it's so important for people to prestige and get those extra custom classes.
Target Finders are not OP. They are not nooby. So why is everyone complaining about them?
1. Diamonds highlighting enemy players - Cold Blooded fixes that, and even without it, the diamond is unnecessary and sometimes annoying. You already SEE the enemy, so it's not like it's a major advantage.
2. The color changing red - If this is overpowered to you, then I don't want to live on this planet anymore. What kind of nerf would be implemented on this feature? Is the color red so OP, that it needs to be nerfed to the color green?
The scope doesn't increase weapon effectiveness and accuracy. You increase weapon effectiveness and accuracy. Stop blaming your lack of skill and abilities on a simple little weapon sight.
I don't see what the fuss is about, I don't even see TF users go positive very often.
If you're tactically aware, and your reactions are good then a TF user shouldn't cause you a problem.
Having used it a bit myself on LMGs I actually find it a disadvantage, you lose all peripheral vision and maybe aren't as aware of what's going in around you as you otherwise would be. If you need a red box to see what you should be easily able to see with iron sights then you're obviously not very good at the game, and I kinda feel sorry for you.
Also, learn to EMP.
