So does Hardwired work on scorestreaks now?

Black Ops II Xbox 360

Does it after the patch?

Its always worked against Counter UAV's and EMP's.

Oh I meant if it worked for sentry guns and guardians too.  I assumed it wouldn't, but I was a little confused by the notes, stating that it now fully protects you from EMP.

I think that's just talking about the little flash effect you get for around half a second when hit with EMP grenades using Hard Wired, wont ever work against Sentries or anything because that's not what its for.

No worries, the flash effect I'm on about happens like 2 seconds into the video in the link...

Also if you don't use Hard Wired you should give it a bash, I use it on all my classes as I find it essential in HC due to everyone EMP'ing me, even my own team.

I find toughness or scavenger more useful in those slots though. ... if it protected your own scorestreaks from getting destroyed than I would probably consider using it... as of right now, getting EMPED is annoying, but it doesn't stop me from killing the enemy.

I run UAV and VSAT though and there's nothing worse than getting a 1200 scorestreak wasted because of teammates hitting you with EMP's for the entire duration.

People rarely use EMP systems anyways... even less to have one ready as a VSAT goes up.

Yeah the actual EMP system isn't the problem for me, most of my clan run EMP nades and toss them at everything red for extra score and because the blast radius is so large and the fact its HC where the blast also effects me if my own team throws one, without Hard Wired I'm pretty much EMP'ed for half the games so it was either run Hard Wired all the time or continue moaning at my friends for constantly hitting me the EMP nades lol
