I would like to see a buff for the SMAW

Modern Warfare 3 Forum

The only reason I would like to see a buff is for airsupport. I think the only thing you can take down with the SMAW is UAV and CUAV. You get a hitmarker with everything else. It wouldn't be so bad, but it's a one and done launcher so you effed in the 'A' if you don't have Blind-Eye.


The SMAW is the only defense against airsupport you have until level 20 (Blind-Eye). So what are you suppose to do until then, shoot it? It still takes a full clip with most weapons AFTER you fire your SMAW rocket

Definitely agree that the lockon aspect of the game should be buffed. Nothing else though.

You want a stinger? SMAW is fine for lower levels.

You don't unlock the Stinger until 40 something. You have nothing to protect you from airsupport until level 11 when you get Blind-Eye

It is fine for low levels...how many games does it take you to get to lvl 11?  the smaw isn't your problem...its teamwork.

Before you can have teamwork you need a team, running solo that doesn't happen often. I don't see what the big deal is to buff the SMAW so you can take out an Attack Heli

I don't even care about taht aspect. I can't even lock on to the chopper. It beeps a few times then after I shoot it misses the chopper completely.

I've never had that problem. I just get hit markers

I've had my Stinger do this the last couple times, too.
