So, we have all had the chance to play this now for a month or so. Overall thoughts? Better than MW2? Black Ops?

I like it just fine. There is some nitpicking, but it's fun. No better or worse than the past two CoDs.

I like it better than Black Ops, since I wasn't a Black Ops fan. It is on par with MW2, but I really am looking forward to some bigger maps to play on. I still wish latency wasn't such a huge part of these games, but overall I have had fun with the game, and I will be playing it until I at least fully prestige.

I freakin' LOVED MW2, hated the Black Ops campaign, but thought the MP was frustrating, yet OK. The campaign on MW3 is awesome, and I love what they did with the multiplayer with the loadouts, weapon upgrades, and package variants...my only gripe is a lot of the maps 'feel' too similar, and there aren't any bigger maps. The first map pack may fix those gripes.

Took the words right out of my post. Couldn't agree more.

Also, I'm very pleased that prestiging does more than give you a stupid emblem.

Here are the notes for today's patch:

Additional improvements to address lag.

Fix for Melee Jump.

Clan Tag Validation (remove buttons from clan tags).

Improve Host Migration logic. Prevent stat Loss.

Weapon Rebalancing (Dual FMG-9, Type-95, CM-901 Attachments)

Hitmarker Sound on Ps3

Reticle fix for certain weapons.

Updates to the Spawn system

Further “lag compensation” or “host advantage / disadvantage” updates plus ability for on-going hot fixes based on feedback.

Default :30 Round Start timer for System Link only, while looking into adjustable timer for System Link games for Competitive Play.

Options to allow System Link players to ‘unlock all’ for competitive play in System Link only.

If lag/lag compensation isn't fixed in this patch, I'm probably just going to sell the game. I went back to MW2 yesterday, and it was amazing. People actually died when I shot them. No more dying to people who hadn't even come around the corner yet on my screen. No one had any lag advantage over me, and I didn't have any advantage over them. Even when I was dying, I was just so much more relaxed.

This is my number one issue with the game. I can't tell you how many times I muttered "wtf???" having no idea how I died.

I wonder how much they toned down the Type 95?

I have never had anything that bad, but I am still in awe of how bad the "turn the corner" kills have gotten. I can literally be 6 feet around a corner, and I'm getting hit while trying to evade.

I honestly think it's a spawn glitch issue and here is why I say that - last night I hopped on to play for a bit before calling it a night and while I was crouching by a tank....I heard someone fall next to me...it was a sniper from the other team...I thought it was one of my guys for a second until i didn't see the "green" - what's funny is that there was nowhere he could have come from if he didn't spawn - he couldn't have had been running around silent because again, his player made the fall noise - he also couldn't have jumped from any building because the building I was next to was non-interactive....it was really weird and I'm guessing the sniper from the other team had no idea he fell into place and made the crunch noise when he hit the ground.

Infinity Ward Drops MW3 Banhammer Once Again

Per Teamxbox site Dec 14th... http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/25394/...er-Once-Again/

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 developer Infinity Ward is once again dropping the banhammer, this time hitting offending MW3 players with 5000-day "perma-bans". To put that in perspective, if you're hit with one of these bans today, you'll be out of action for just over 13 years and 8 months -- until Friday, August 22, 2025, to be precise.

patches really have helped this game...I am no longer getting killed and seeing replays of something that did not happen on my screen. Spawns are still fucked up...bad...but this is a much better game now...

Yep. I have had numerous 30-2 games after the last patch (that I couldn't get prior) and have bumped my ratio to 2.1.

Game is much, much more playable.

If they can have 3 large maps in the next map pack and fix the atrocious (worst in the series...probably compounded because of the smaller maps) spawning, it would be the best in the series multiplayer wise.

Yeah, I've noticed this big time - I can actually setup in any designated spot now for a few seconds to gather where I want to move to next.....previously, I had no choice but to constantly move no matter where I was at - the bans they are doing are helping big time.

You consider this spawning worse than Black Ops? The spawning isn't as good as MW2, but definitely better than Black Ops from what I have experienced.

Black Ops spawns were much better...I am surprised you feel that way.

And the spawns in MW3 are compounded because the maps are so small. I have been shot in the back by an enemy I just killed in MW3 more times in one day of playtime than all of the other CODs combined.

What was being considered banworthy? I guess I didn't notice what the cheating tactics were.

Re: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 (PS3, 360...)

I did not have to much trouble with the spawns in black ops...but MW3 has some of the worst I have played since GRAW....


The game is so much better though after the patch...

Also, I have finished all the survival maps to wave 15...that was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be...only one achievement left....48 stars on spec ops..I think I am in the high 30's now...getting close...


Overall a step above Black ops in SP...and the spec ops blows zombie shit out of the water...if only it was 4 player....I still think the MP in Black Ops was a little better...but I will wait until the first Map Pack comes out for my final decision...Nothing in this game comes close to the fun of Nuke Town Domination....

Is there anyway to get extra grenades/flashbangs? Or any way to replenish them?

I thought scavenger allows replenishment as long as the scavenger pack you got is from someone who had not used their nades or tactical nades

- I no longer get shot in the back IMMEDIATELY upon respawning (this was almost a constant for me)
- I now longer see people being able to launch a million javelin missiles when you're only suppose to get one (this was a glitch in MW2 I think as well) Also....this was happening with other weapons as well.....mainly with Launchers.

Game play as a whole just see much more balanced now - I can't really explain that in full but that's about as good as I can say it. And one last thing....whatever fix they gave to the Type95 (if any) which is my weapon of choice with the red dot site and rapid fire attachments......I thank them as I almost got 21 kills in one game....NEVER reached that much before but unfortunately it was just one game so...doesn't really say much for my skills.

I think the spawning in Black Ops was WAYYYYY worse than MW3, especially Summit. I literally had people spawn right next to me, or even worse right behind me, when I didn't think there was room behind me!

I'm like 1-2 away from finishing a column, missing 4 total. Would be willing to trade just so I can finish at least one column.
