That makes sense. Some people spam them everywhere. I'll be hit by 5+ of them and a frag, blinded for 10+ seconds with no health at all while they just rush me.

Yeah, I hate that. Especially in small maps, like Rust. I was in love with Tactical Mask Pro on Blops. Best perk ever. I hope they have that perk again in Blops2.

Same with Flak Jacket. Blast Shield doesn't do shit. It reduces explosives by like 2% and flashes by half a second duration. What type of perk is that?

Yep, Tac Mask Pro & Flak Jacket Pro were amazing for Domination. Absolutely loved Black Ops. I felt like it was the most balanced game in the series.

i hate that blast shield pro only does half flash/stun. why not immunity like tac mask, which was better because it was a tier 3 perk.

mostly i hate snow maps because its hard for me to pick people out. everythink is white, the ground, the buildings, the players have light coloured clothing. same goes for dark, dirty maps where everything is black and dark grey

I agree with this. In BLOPS you could actually play Domination and stand a chance. In the MW series, it seems so much harder to capture flags and such. It's like as soon as you're on a flag you're dead whereas in BLOPS I could consistently capture objectives. Alot more fun in BLOPS playing Dom.

Or they get shot down before they enter the map. Let me ask you, why does a recon drone have 2 flares and takes 3 shots to take down, but a helicopter takes one. Assault takes more skill to get than Support. That's just how it is. I think my Strafe Runs should take at LEAST 4 stingers to shoot down. They take two. What the hell is up with that? You can take out 5 helicopters with two rockets.

My last prestige I went for the 40 Strafe Runs title, and one of the games on Dome I called in 3 strafe runs, 4 attack helicopters, and 6 predators missiles. I got about 6 kills from all of that air support because some jackass shot it all down. -_-*

Why do some people say head glitching? Since when is shooting someone in the head considered a glitch? Jus cause there are standing behind a car camping is not a glitch!

You have it wrong. The term is used for when all you can see, shoot, and hit is the head of someone. Usually sitting (camping) behind a box. With host advantage and connection issues landing the 2 head shots or 3 body shots proves difficult. If it always was a headshot it wouldn't be a problem but you usually hit the shoulder or some body part that isn't visible.

It isn't a glitch, but it's a lame tactic that ruins aspects of the game. It's VERY hard to hit them.

That's not the case though. It's when someone is standing or crouching behind an object where their gun really isn't peaking over, but the game "lets it" and they can shoot you and only have a tiny part of their head visible, making it very difficult to hit them.

The map just doesn't flow well in my experience. Many a game spent lapping for nothing.

Ahh yes, that one. I thought that was a beautiful disaster. Interesting idea, but the way it ended up was atrocious. Not the worst map, Dome and some other one I can't rememeber were worse than this one.

I almost always have a rough time on this map. With the choke points and awkward spawning I seem to get flanked a lot.

Downturn is one of my favourite maps. I think it's my 9th favourite (6th if we don't include FaceOff maps, 3rd if we don't include DLC at all). Black Box is by far my least favourite.

As someone else mentioned, it's a great Domination map. All the triangular Domination maps (Arkaden, etc) make for great matches.

That map sucks. I just hate the way its laid out. I never vote for it, UNLESS the other option is "OUTPOST."

I like to play it for fun on infected. It is a pretty hard map on HFFA because people are hard to spot, and you don't have time to register them before they shoot the hell outta you. Best map for me is something like this Infected: Mission, HFFA: Village, and TDM: Outpost (yes, seriously)

Downturn is one of my favorites and one of my most hated...depending on what setup I'm running.

Flashbangs don't really bother me...I use them hard. But the majority of the time they're used towards me, it is by idiot teammates who don't seem to understand the map. Turn around, moron. The enemy is coming from the other way.

Compared to TERMINAL , DOWNTURN is the best map ever. I DESPISE Terminal with a passion.

As SilentStrike said, the only thing I really want to play this map on is Domo. I'm my opinion, it isn't a completely horrible map but it also isn't one of my favorites either.

I really dislike this map along with Carbon, Bootleg, Dome, Arkaden, Bakaara, Outpost and Underground.

Wow, never meant that list to get that large, most of these maps I really dislike.

I may get an ELITE subscription and see what tall the DLC maps are like.
