Don’t get me wrong I love playing on Black ops as its fun and entertaining, however I am not a hyped up fan of the series. This is a list of things that need to be fixed, as they are annoying or just an idiotic move on Trayarch’s part.
The gun sounds.
Some if not all of the guns don’t sound all that good. They sounded much better in MW2. Infact the sound of them has even put me off using some of the guns, make the guns sound a little bit better.
Special gun purchases.
When you buy all weapons in a set (Assault rifles etc) it unlocks a special weapon in the category. However what I find disgusting is the fact you also have to pay more COD points to get that special weapon. After spending over 100,000 COD points on weapons the least you could do is give us the final weapon for free.
Flawed Hit detection system/Kill cam.
On a lot of occasions I find myself getting killed by someone who I clearly shot, the game even indicates that I hit the enemy, however when I come to watch the kill cam Apparently I never took a shot or I missed… this is not an issue with just Black ops, every call of duty game (from COD4) has has the same issues, and yet they fail to see this flaw.
Whether or not this is an issue with the kill cam or hit detection system is beyond my knowledge.
A simple patch may fix this flawed system.
Display the host of a public match.
Time and time again the host keeps rage quitting and ends the match. The only issue is that the host does not know that they are the host. Having a small icon next to their player name would be a good thing. However on the flip side if the host were to quit and people found out who the host was it could cause people to post hate messages to the host.
The crash issues
In relation to the host migration it sometimes causes the game freeze (PS3 only) whether this was the result of lazy coding and designing of the game by trayarch remains to be seen. I have seen the list of what the next patch fixes, it doesn’t include the freeze/crash issues. A game crashing or freezing is never a good idea, I am just lucky that is crashes only on loading screens/host migration screens. If it were to crash while saving data it could corrupt the whole PS3 hard drive and I would possibly lose all my save games and DLC.
Improve the report system.
A feature many people wanted on the COD series for years, Xbox live doesn’t need it as it already has its own report system. On the PS3 version I believe that the report system can be abused and we might start seeing players get banned because they are better than other players. If “The pro” is made aware of it then all players are in big trouble.
A good idea is to implement a 3 strikes system, that way players won’t be unfairly banned and also it might give players a chance to appeal against the report.
Let a gun with an under barrel attachments have another attachment.
Its annoying as I really want to use the grenade launcher but I am put off by the fact I can’t use another attachment whilst I have it on. MW2 was good because I could use a scope and grenade launcher on an assault rifle. On Black ops I can’t.
Set the Care package kill streak back to 4 kills.
I would rather not have to use the hard line perk to get a care package at 4 kills. I loved having my kill streaks at 3,4, and 5. However I do see why it was changed to 5 kills as people kept boosting with them.
Give the LMG’s a 100 round limit.
I thought COD was based off real life, but yet the LMG’s only have 30 rounds a magazine (45 with extended magazine attachment) its a bit low and its why I don’t use LMG’s. (This issue doesn’t include the M60 as that has the 100 round limit)
Allow us to duel wield 2 different weapons (Like on Halo 3)
Imagine how good it would be to dual wield a pistol and an SMG at the same time. You could make this a perk.
Allow more than 1 Claymore
Not that big of an issue but it would be good to have more than one claymore to use at any given time. I think that having two would be sufficient enough.
Remove the previous map from the voting system.
Time and time again I would find myself on the same map multiple times in a row and its all because other players want to play on that map. Instead just have the next map or a random map, it would keep things fair, and for new players it will help them get used to the game. Playing on the same map over and over again is really boring and ruins the fun. I have left countless games because of this issue.
(This has actually been implemented now)
Bigger maps please … for free.
I wouldn’t mind having slightly bigger maps, if you look at the maps on battlefield bad company 2 you’ll see how big the maps are. I am not asking for gigantic maps but more slightly bigger maps couldn’t hurt. I will also not be paying for an expensive map pack after spending £45 on launch day. I want these maps for free.
That is about it.
