I just unlocked the Overkill perk last night and so that's bumped up my excitement for this game a little bit. I like to carry around an MP5+silencer/Dragonov combo. I'm not a very good sniper, but I'd say I'm at least average for someone that doesn't do it a lot. I like how sniping is set up in this game, just the way it mimics reality (holding your breath, leading your target, being extremely vulnerable to people with more assault-oriented weapons). It's like a completely different type of gameplay within the multiplayer mode itself. The animation for snipe kills is awesome too. I love the mental image of blood squirting out on a dude that had no idea what he was about to walk into.

It's a pretty useful combination for maps like Overgrown (I think) and Ambush. On Countdown you can hop onto just about any of those missile silo lids and get a nice vista of the rest of the map, you just have to be wary of other players who are rushing your spot from the flank.

Lately I've also been using the RPGx2 perk, so having the ability to take down a chopper, snipe, and quietly rush people is pretty useful, although it relies heavily on individual skill with the weapons (due to the fact that you have to rely on iron sights with the MP5, losing your first perk, etc.). Not that I have any noteworthy skills at this game. And that's what I think the game's main draw comes from, just trying to find out which combination works out best for you. It's quite spectacular in its own right, sort of like an RPG. I can't wait to unlock the Barrett.

On a side, I think it's funny how every time I kill a black person, I assume that the person playing them is black. Sometimes I wonder if people also think that I'm black when they kill my black avatar.

edit: Another thing I mentioned late last night is that I fucking HATE how the killcam will show someone in the middle of a reload, with their magazine OUT OF THE FUCKING WEAPON, and then instanteneously they'll go back to killing me with whatever was left in their clip. At least show me that they had to double-tap the weaponswap button before they just went back to shooting, you fucking piece of shit.

I love the 3x frag grenade perk. I get so many cheap kills just from random grenade throwing.

and i get so many cheap deaths from it. thats why i fucking hate wet works beyond words. i NEVER.,..EVER get past the half way point on that map.

the killcam is going to be the death of me. im going to have an aneurism or heart attack from seeing the way i die a lot of times. like, it would look like i unloaded half my clip into these faggots, then the dude turns around and shoots me in the ankle with 1 m16 round and i die.

i dont know why i get so worked up sometimes, but fuckin a cotton, im gunna lose it one of these days.

I fucking hate wet work. The strategy I've had the most success with is to just run like a motherfucker. Stab anyone that gets in your way and try go get behind their spawn area. You'll die a lot trying to get there, but when you do, you'll rack up the kills.

The worst for me is seeing some jackass lob a grenade over a building and hit me a mile away. I'll do that a lot too, but it still pisses me off like no other when it happens to me.

Wet Work is extremely shitty for HQ. It seems like the team that captures the HQ first, captures it every time because the HQ always spawns where they respawn.

Spawning, walking 3 feet in front of you and getting shot in the face FTW.

I've died to the same airstrike three times before.

And it was my airstrike.

I wouldn't pay $40 for that game. The only thing worthwhile is online, and I'm almost rank 20 and still suck balls at it.

I'll wait for Gears of War 2. Or World at War.

I wasn't any good until well after I hit 55. Of course, it's a lot easier to level on PC, but it still takes a while before you get the hang of it.
