pistols shouldn't have the same advantage as a primary!!

Actually, I believe that Secondary weapons should compete against primary weapons...to an extent; especially in the Pick 10 system. I say this because each piece of gear is already worth 1 point, thus if you made it so that secondaries are weaker, then they have no real use besides being back-ups. Now going against machine-pistol secondaries is another thing, but I believe Black Ops 2 has the balance right for weapons (mostly).

I've been having fun by playing hardcore with only a pistol and extra perks. 

Sometimes you can get people to rage and that's worth a chuckle.

Secondary, by definition, means something that is "Inferior" to the primary.  As I can recall, most of the secondaries do not match this description (except the executioner maybe).

The intented role of the secondary (from COD1-WaW) was to provide backup assistance in case the primary didn't finish the job.  This meant that the secondary could only consist of handguns, in addition to being very weak.  The entire concept was thrown out of the window when MW2 was released, and that's not a good thing.

I think the real question here is....

WHY ARE THE PISTOLS SO FAT AND UGLY?!

Also....

WHY DID THEY ADOPT THE "HOLDING THE GUN WITH ONE HAND" THING IT LOOKS STUPID.

I don't see why it really matters at this point.  Maybe in MW3 where you could use Akimbo FMGs(even after the countless patches) and still dominate if you knew its effectiverange.  But now where the pick 10 comes in, it makes more sense to make them act this way.  Also.  I don't know about you guys, but the pistols don't even seem that strong in this game(aside from the B23R since it is pretty much the Baretta from MW2 just more terrible).  I love using pistols only in some cases(now that I discovered the beauty of the Tac45) and from my experience I have got to say that I don't notice much of an increase in effectiveness based off previous games.  Either I just don't notice it as much as you guys, or maybe I just don't have a problem getting killed by them. 

Pistols have alwasy been a class of weapon that either really sucks or actually does work.  And if you look at the history of COD from the first MW you can see that each one always has one really good pistol then a bunch of lessar ones. 

*Not including any Machine Pistols

COD4 - Deagle

W@W - S&W Model 27

MW2 - .44 Magnum & Baretta/ Raffica

Black Ops 1 - Python

MW3 - .44 Magnum

Black Ops 2 - B23R

This is only my personal opinion though.  Looking back at all the other pistols there were some that, in the right hands, could do just as well as the ones I listed above.  So really there isn't anything different that they did with the pistols in this game compared to previous ones.  At least, that's how I feel about them.

Pistols are not as strong as primaries learn to adapt or sell your game.

I'm happy there good as they are. Fucking IW, can't seem to make well designed and well balanced handguns after cod4. Mw2 you were insane to use them, machine pistols outclassed them all, and shotguns outclassed those. Then mw3, machine pistols outclass them again, and every game the desert eagle is worse and worse. But this game, they are nice and fair. I love running around with the raffica and burst burst, then hide and whip out dat knife, and piss junior off!

The only people that are defending the pistols are people who use the pistols all the time. I think it is clear that pistols are over-powered in this game. I am very good at aiming and hip-firing and have been playing COD since COD3 on the Xbox 360. With all that said, it is ridiculous when my Vector gets beat by a pistol in a medium range gun fight on a consistent basis. A pistol should not be better then all of the primary weapons.

A great example of a person that gets killed by something that he thinks shouldn't ever kill him.  Then that must mean it's OP.  If you get killed by a pistol then the person using the pistol outplayed you. Simple as that.  The Vector is a beast of a gun.  If you can't handle a pistol user then you are the problem.  Not the pistol user.
