    I got 32 killstreak, but I forgot to unlock the nuke.

    and the only useless perks i can think of are commando and one man army.

    Commando is actually a handy perk because of how damn over powered it can be sometimes. Can stab people that are like 20 feet away from you and, like said before, you can't be killed while stabbing. So it has it's up side. The down side is if you aren't much of a knifer, then in that case just don't use it. :p

    Zomg, here comes another one of my epically long posts and maybe just the epically short ones.

    Assault Sniper Rifles: Aren't very clear about that either you're saying it's very accurate or people are pulling intervention shots from the ACR which is btw, a promotion using your key code to unlock the really strange guns like the ACR Sniper or Mini-Uzi Sniper.

    Sonic the Hedgehog Care Package Running: Rob Bowling said their working on it, but it's not one of the "serious" issues that are going around. Next patch is coming out. And this IS a ban able glitch.

    Nuke Boosters: WTF are you talking about?

    Useless Killstreaks: Lets see here...
    • UAV: See where the enemies are
    • Counter UAV: Doesn't allow the enemy to see where you are. Unless they have heartbeat.
    • Care Package: You get a random killstreak except Tactical Nuke, Emergency Airdrop, and another Care Package.
    • Sentry Gun: Only good for covering a wide area say CTF flag, Domination Flag, Demolition bombsite, Search and Destroy bombsite.
    • Predator Missile: Can be a person UAV with a big radius, even bigger with Danger Close/Pro. Kills at least 2 people if you're good with it.
    • Attack Helicopter: Identical to the one in Call of Duty 4. Not as effective as the Harrier because the Harrier has the initial bombing and the harrier can take down Chopper Gunners, Attack Helicopters, Pave Lows, and other Harriers
    • Precision Airstrike: Identical to the Call of Duty 4 airstrike. If you're good with it then fine. If not, then don't use it.
    • Harrier Strike: 2 initial cluster bombings then the harrier itself. Easier to shoot down but can take down other killstreaks.
    • Care Package: 4 Care Packages clustered into one. Except you can't get another Emergency Airdrop, Care Package, Tactical Nuke, or the EMP.
    • Pave Low: Heavily armed and defended aircraft. 2 FMJ turrets on each side. Can be shot down easily by Harrier/missile/or rarely the Attack Helicopter.
    • Stealth Bomber: Carpets the area with bombs from point A to point B of the edges of the map intersecting where you selected.
    • AC130: 20 second long gunship that has 3 cannons. If you use only the big one, you're a noob. The big cannon can penetrate some surfaces. 3 flares and restocks 1 flare per 10 seconds.
    • Chopper Gunner: Helicopter that has you controlling the gun. It hovers over the map to get you a better shot at the enemies. 1 flare that doesn't restock and can be taken down virtually by anything from the predator to the harrier.
    • EMP: If the opposing team has all their killstreaks in the air, useful. If the oppsing team depends on heartbeat, thermal, red dot sight, uav, hud, very useful. Otherwise, virtually useless.
    • Tactical Nuke: 'nuff said.
    In the end, if you know how to use it, then they're all very useful. Suggestion, if the opposing team can get AC130s or any other very gay killstreak that is hard to take down, then save a predator. If you're lucky, you can use the predator to hit the AC130, otherwise hit the Pave Low, Harrier, Attack Helicopter, Chopper Gunner, Stealth Bomber, Care Package's little bird, and even a sentry turret. No killstreak is useless.

    Stupid Perks: The only perks I can think of that are stupid is Sitrep and maybe One Man Army. All the others are because either you suck, they hacked, or you just have crap lag.

    1887 Longshots: Yes they fixed the akimbo but if it still has problem with bling, then tell that to IW. They will listen to you.

    Recoil-less Assault Rifle: Everyone thinks every gun has no recoil... No. When a person thinks of a gun, they think the recoil sends the front part of the barrel up. Well you're partially wrong...
    3 mains types of recoil:
    1. Up: The barrel of the gun goes up. Like the AK-47.
    2. Left/Right: Where the barrel doesn't just go up, it goes left and right. Like the MP5K.
    3. Back: Yes people, there are guns that have recoil that goes backwards. Take for example, the recoil of the Barrett M82 is redirected backwards but because the recoil is just so powerful, it also goes left/right. The ACR and the M4 both have back recoil. Next time, watch the killcam. You'll understand.
    Headshot Hitmarkers: What are you talking about?

    Commando's temp invulnerability while lunging: You're lagging. and the knife takes less than half a second. In that half a second if you weren't lagging, you can kill him. Also, you probably panicked and didn't aim and sprayed.

    Huge Knife Radius: Once again, you lag.

    Thats right. PC has much more possiblities than console and they should have used it... but whatever... its their problem.

    actually, console shooters are SIGNIFICANTLY slower paced than PC shooters. If you compare MW2 PC to MW2 360, youll notice that in PC you move MUCH faster. This is to compensate for the fact you react quicker with the mouse than the controller.

    Theyve also patched the 1887 Bling Akimbo/FMJ glitch.
    One Man Army is NOT a useless perk. Infact, its on the most useful imo. Its essentially free ammo. I've seen a friend get a tactical nuke by just an M4A1 + OMA and Claymores. he would plant claymore all over the place since he could refill his ammo with OMA.

    Sitrep is also quite useful, especially in Objective games (Search and Destroy/Demolition/Sabotage). Can help you find those damn claymores/C4. Also helps you find Tac Inserts, which many proficient players in demolition use.

    Agreed. Consoles also have an abundance of.... slower people. Much easier if its your first shooter

    It wasn't a glitch, it was the community complaining that it was "Too 1337 haxorish". Its a gun you get for 3 levels, com'on.

    IW is "Tweaking it", so don't expect that from your friend anymore. Its another attempt at kissing up to an angry community.

    well, theyve already capped C4 at 3, dunno about claymores. its still a viable tactic imo.

    Agreed. It makes CoD:MW2 (which costs $60 STILL!) worth absolutely nothing compared to Battlefield Bad Company 2. No question about it.

    Agree. Unless you prefer holywoodishness to realism.
