XXXXX Chopper Gunners need a fix (video)! XXXXX

Hello everyone, I'm here to talk about an issue that is now starting to affect me. I am a decent player, but not good enough to get Chopper Gunners and Attack Dogs every match, but when I do get my chopper gunner, it gets shot down instantly. I've done this before, and I felt bad, because I know how it feels, so now I don't do it anymore and instead I just hide.



Here's a video to show Treyarch how some players get rewarded for a 9 killstreak:








Also, the person who posted the video made a comment saying "the fact is the chopper needs more flares and should be immune to lock on for the first 10 secs" and it has a lot of thumbs up.



Please take a look at this Treyarch.

Chopper gunners are hit and miss, some times you get a good team that will shoot it down, just because you get a killstreak, you aren't guaranteed kills. This game is about you and your gun, not you sitting in a chopper.

You don't need a good team to shoot down a Chopper Gunner. I've gotten Chopper Gunners shot down by players with M72 Law launchers. And in less than 15 seconds. As long as the other team has at least 2 people with M72 Laws, or 1 person with the Strela- 3, your Chopper Gunners aren't gonna last for more than 20 seconds like 95% of the time.

Blackbird is good, but doesn't last very long either, so you don't get nearly as many kills as you would with a fixed Chopper Gunner.

But what if I EARNED a Chopper Gunner? If I get 9 kills without dieing I deserve the privilege of "sitting in a Chopper Gunner" and getting more kills. Right?

Agreed. Whenever I only get 2-3 kills with a Chopper Gunner, I always think "Wow, they were ready to shoot it down".



It baffles me that people get mad that they don't rack up 10-15 kills with it.





It's like people want other people to willingly get killed by them.

Re: XXXXX Chopper Gunners need a fix (video)! XXXXX

Basically, I was on Nuketown and got one, and before the doors even opened and the person grabs the gun I got shot the first time. I then get 1 kill and it's shot down. Honestly, a Spy Plane is more effective than a chopper and it takes at MOST 3 kills to get. A chopper gunner takes more kills, which should mean it's more rewarding, but it's not rewarding in the least. Obviously since I have a positive K/D and barely any chopper/gunship kills because they get shot down I don't rely on stuff besides my gun, but it's called a reward for a reason, and we're not getting the reward. Honestly, I'd be fine if they made it so that only SAM turrets can take it down and it takes 3 shots from one, that'll never happen. I guess if they made it so the first shot at it couldn't come until after 10 seconds from when you get to the map that would be fine too.
