true story. I am not a great player. as an old man playing a young man's game, I just try to survive or help the team as much as I can. With the young men I play with, I established myself as the support player who keeps the battlefield free of equipment and the skies clear of nuisances. I have a good game every once in a while, but I am just as happy to help them all out.
i destroy agr all the time one emp only needed same with sentry gun ,gaurdian,and the flyer
AGR takes multiple emp. If you have been killing them with one EMP you have been getting lucky and the AGRs are already weak when it happens.
MK48 - Rapid Fire and FMJ. While rapid fire reduces range, it won't matter when dealing with low flying streaks.
I used to absolutely love my Stealth Chopper. But lately it seems like 4 out of 6 players have a rocket strapped to their back...
AGR's used to kick ass but now more players are using EMP grenades... no one used to use them. Also you can destroy an AGR with 1 black hat (which makes no sense since it takes 2 rockets + bullets to kill one.)
Any class with Blind eye completely negates your Stealth Chopper and Escort drone... I know you know this and I am not tryign to piss in your corn flakes. I like these 3 streaks also, but lately more players know the counters.
I find Hellstorm missile, Lightning Strike, Sentry gun really affective. Of those 3 only the Sentry gun can be countered but it usually kills 2-3 before it dies.
That actually sounds like one of the worst combos, all easily taken out in 1 life.
It's a good combo but if you have a dude like me in the game, your gonna have a bad time. The ARG takes 2 EMP grenades + 5 (normal) gun bullets, and the helicopters can be shot down so easily, even when they are flying out of map (not entered the map yet).
Seems like everyone wants to tell you how crappy it is, and how they'd do this this and this to take them all out... really, it doesn't matter, what matters is your kill count with them. I am always evaluating my streaks in the combat record. I've used hundred of AGR's and Stealth choppers. AGR's average me about 4-5 kills per AGR (I don't control them just let them roam so I can get gun kills), and Stealth Choppers about 6.
That said, the kill per is going down as people are getting better at taking them out. Bottom line is, while yes, people do have classes for anti-air, you still have to first die, then switch the class. By this time the chopper probably already got a few of their teammates. And, I'd say about half the time people don't take the stealth chopper out ever. So, those times it gets you the 8 kills or so, and the times it does get taken out I usually still pick up a couple.
The thing I love about running AGR/Stealth Chopper is you almost always get them together. And I always let them go at the same time, and usually a team will take out one or the other fairly quickly but not both. The escort drone multiplies that effect, although I prefer the warthog since it got patched it's pretty amazing.
Don't let these guys fool you, you don't run into try-hards like this on a regular basis in public matches.
I get you. The people here are pretty much trashing my combo because they know what they are doing.
No offense guys but there are still enough idiots that don't kow what they are doing.
Yes blind eye counters them all. How many people run blind eye? almost no one.
And because the the choppers are not the biggest problem compared to the swarm and dogs and all that people tend to not even bother bringing them down.
The peopel that are active on this forum actually know how to play but a lot of people don't even try to take down air support. So you can bag a lot of kills with easy to get scorestreaks.
Stealth choppers hard to shoot down? Lol.
Now escorts I believe are harder to shoot down. You want to talk about flying low, those things fly super low and are hard to spot at given points of certain maps, such as raid. Some people who run FHJs dont put on blind eye and seem to hope to respawn and get shots on the escort drone in the grace safety period, but it's nowhere to be seen. I really didn't care for the AH-6 in MW3 but I love the escort drone here.
As for AGRs... yeah, the few times I ran it I was cleaning up. I love seeing them myself since I always run EMPs and C4s with scavenger. EMP + C4 alone usually does it.
