I was just wondering about this. I got to call in my first one last night, damn it was fun.

Normally I get tagged around 18. Once I got close, and the host left the game and I couldn't migrate.

But last night I was all stabby and shooty and grenady in the right places. My Harrier and AC-130 helped a bunch.

But then as soon as I got the Nuke I hit fire. Was that the right thing to do? I realise that hey, it's my game I can do what I want, but is that the done thing? Should I have waited until the last seconds of the game? We were 5000/3000 in TDM, so it was pretty much guarenteed we'd win.

Still going BigBadaboom was great.

The one time I got a nuke was on Estate, and I waited until after I was killed before I used it. I got up to 36 before I was whacked and used the nuke as sweet sweet retribution.



I say use it when you want, but hold off till you die atleast once so that you can keep bringing up your kill streak.

I feel for some of the nuke guys, they use it and the host backs out. Robbed.

I think that the addition of a nuke was more detrimental to the game than anything.  Maybe in FFA or something, but in Team matches, I don't believe it is fair for one member of one team to be able to decide the entire game.  Sure, one could argue that anyone with a 25+ K/D is essentially doing that without said perk, but I still think it is overkill.  Then you also have those instances where players who are very good get stuck on a bad or mediocre team.  Where as the other team can be up thousands of points and would win 9 times out of 10, that single great player on the other team wins it for them.  Then you also have the fact that the match is cut quite short, which means waiting another 30 seconds to 2 minutes for the next game to start, which is also a pain.

one time i got it in rundown, used it right away as we were about to lose and there was only a minute or so left in the game. ive never heard anybody complain about a teammate getting a nuke so i think you were safe

So, I take it that the tactical nuke ends the whole match right?

I wouldn't know since my xbox isn't back from repair yet (it should be arriving today) but I know that back when I played CoD:UO while we didn't have anything that would end the game outright, we did have arty strikes which were re-usable every 2.5min or so. Those things were great! You'd get two guys with 40+ kills (not streaks) and then call in artillery on the opposing team's flag then run in and grab it and have someone grab you with a jeep and then take off for the hills. Great fun, and teamwork was mandatory.

You earned it, so you decide when to use it.

I've only called in one so far, and when I got it, I was so excited I just called it in right away. I'm dead set on getting another one, though and waiting till I die to call it in like Linus said. I have my killstreaks set as harrier, chopper gunner, nuke, and I use the SCAR red dot with Hardline pro on. Oddly enough, the nuke I got was when I was using my sniping class on Afghan, and the only other times I've come close (like 24 kills close) were under the same circumstances.
u dont know what to do ur getting mottor boatted

Dest, yeah, I was initially going " Don't kill me, don't kill me!", then "don't turn around! OMFG don't turn around" then "Bwahahahahahahaah!"

My kit was (sorry to say it) a Tvor-21 with underslung shotgun, M9 with Tac knife, Semtex, Flashbangs, Lightweight, Marathon and Commando. I needed those in the end because I'd used all my AR ammo, all my shotgun ammo, and my M9 was empty. I got the last two kills with my knife and I picked up an M4. That got me another kill as I was hightailing it out of there. I was way too stoked to think about trying to get a better KD, I just went with it.

Booooooooooooom.

My kill streaks are Harrier, AC-130 and the nuke.

If you place that Harrier right it kicks ass. An airstrike AND a COD4 heli in one? Sign me up.

But it is also easier to shoot down. I know, I do it often. I've only hit as couple of AC-130's, but I swat helicopters down like flies. Both player ones and NPC ones.

(Besides, I just like the idea of an AC-130. I've liked them since the AC-47 and even like the AC-119. I'd LOVE to be an AC-130 crewman. What do I do? Fly cargo planes, you know, nothing much :) I'd LOVE to get my hands on an AC-27! Hope those aren't cancelled permanently)

I'd hold of until I get killed, might as well get as high a streak as you can.

AC-130's aren't cargo planes O_o


C-130's are the cargo version. AC-130 are the armed combat version.

I think that's what he was saying. He said he'd love to be an AC-130 crewman, but all he gets to do right now is fly cargo planes.
