Toughness is a useless perk.

Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

Toughness is a useless perk.

I use it all the time, and over the weekend, I'm constantly getting out gunned, mostly close quarters by kids who don't even bother using it.

I assumed the difference between Toughness Flinch and No Touchness Flinch was huge, and that flinsh was a needed perk.

But yet, to my suprise it's not.  It's great watching kill cams of people who don't have toughness, and not seeing their gun flinch at all.

Or better yet my favorite, the Flinch up to get an instant headshot.

Toughness is a pretty dang good perk, especially for SMG users imo. Always a tough choice for me between toughness, scavenger, and to a lesser extent cold-blooded.

try playing without it and you will soon notice the difference unless you play hardcore then it is worthless

I have to disagree.

This is just my opinion on it but toughness makes me play like a tank.

When sniping or using an LMG the flinch is so much reduced it's probably unfair even.

Get shot 2-3 times while scoping in and don't even flinch a bit making the one shot kill pretty easy.

Coupled with Tac-mask and Flak Jacket, and you are a steam train.

Not unfair for LMGs and not because I use them.  They are the heaviest weapons in the game so may be that's why there is less flinch, presumably that's why they have the longest ADS times too.  It also means that you can win a few more long engagements which is what they're really for.

Not sure on the sniper rifles because it appears to happen only when scoped in and the SVU-AS is a light weapon so there ought to be more flinch.

LOL just take it off of your classes and you'll soon realize just how much it helped you to win those gunfights.  The guns in this game have a ridiculous amount of flinch without Toughness.  So for every gunfight that they win by a lucky flinch, I would be willing to bet that they lose 10 because of the flinch.

The OP would be right if he was talking about HC. But its very useful in core
