Poor balance of weapons

OZZO

I am stating the obvious but I am sure it will increase playability if some weapons are boosted.

Otherwise, who in the right mind would play with a pistol?? It is so underpowered. I used it for a little bit to unlock some stuff and it sucks big time!

Waiting for the big hitman handgun... otherwise totally agree... but what else would you use? I havent gotten used to overkill being overused

By all means, you could use a shield to live longer or launchers to unlock their camo. Launchers take the longest to unlock.

I dont feel so good about launchers. Guess I am kinda biased. Like Noobtubes. (Got some skins on the first launcher though ;))

Shield is definitly a good idea!

I currently like my Oden the best. Also started a little sniping again. Been some time since mw2

The original idea of using handguns was that it is quicker to switch to your sidearm than it is to reload, the power or lack of power is a penalty that offsets the speed advantage of swapping guns rather than reloading. Plus carrying a lighter sidearm makes it possible to run faster than you can with a primary weapon selected.

You must be on console because the oden has insane uncontrolable recoil unless your very close.

Yep.

Could also be that I didnt recognize it that much, because the m13 just turned unplayable to me. Insane recoil long distance too.

Damn the M13 is one of the few weapons I can reliably kill with at a distance without mounting. Even mounting it doesn't help a ton but some weapons that others use with iron sites and they somehow see me across the map and reliably easily kill me is so damn frustrating. First I dont see how they can even see me. I have a Samsung G7 monitor and very good computer and still cant see enemy that far. I am positive that theres a ton of Cronus Zens out there on consoles. Oh and not to mention enemy tags occasionally show up as my team color to throw a real fly in the ointment. Here I think its a team mate and suddenly I am kilkled by them. This game really is unbalanced for PC players.

I got the faster trigger now on the 1911 i think it is. . .
Works great now.

a pro will do, and they can kill you with just 1 or 2 pistol shot, not to mention the auto pistol ...

Where does the game say that pistol is for pro players?
Compare apples to apples please.
Vast majority of the player base are amateurs playing at various levels. And pistol is way underpowered compared to other guns. See your own stats doing Shipment with SMG and a pistol and let us know ;-)

if you can aim with a pistol you can kill with a pistol but i prefer to mow them down with my primary because at the end of the day its about kill or be killed.

YEAH THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forget apples, leave snacks for between matches, use whatever weapons you have at hand during games, they do more damage.

By vast majority, do you actually mean you?

It takes as much skill to take out a player with a well aimed shot using a pistol as it does to mow them down during a spray and pray frenzy with an smg. If you are not good with a pistol, maybe it's not the fault of the weapon, maybe it's your own lack of expertise in using that class of weapon.

Get yourself into some pistol only lobbies and try it out there, they are a lot of fun.

Pistols are amazing at close range to medium range, and it is easy to collect one hit kills with pistols, after you have taken the time to learn how use them effectively.

Mate, I have gold camos on all pistols, so I know my way around the game, don't worry.
It is through extensive gameplay that I made some observations. For example, that unless people are unlocking something related to pistols, it will not be their weapon of choice in the regular gameplay.

Yes, I completely agree with this point, I'm surprised that you have gold camos in pistols given what you appear to be saying in earlier posts though.

Having got gold camos, surely you can see the ads speed advantage that a smaller, lighter, weapon gives a player over the heavier, slower ads speed from more powerful primary guns. A headshot with a weaker weapon will stop a single shot from a more powerful weapon if the pistol is fired first, right?

Pistols are situational. ADS advantage is not too significant if it's not a pistol that kills with one shot and you managed to land that headshot. In normal game mode damage buildup of SMG or AR will quickly overpower the pistol that has to fire s few shots to kill. I reckon that many players will have more satisfaction with the pistol in Hardcore mode because then it could be on par with some other weapons.

you have to understand that pistol is a side arm, and yet you expect it is comparable with a AS, or SMG??? or other type of guns. Also, are you expecting me to compare a gun, single shot with less than 15 bullets vs a full auto- lazer beam- 60 bullets guns???and i can tell you that a 50. Deagle with mediocre aim is as lethal as any spraying guns
