8? That's Rolling Thunder, aka a B-52 bomber. 9 is for a chopper gunner.

Too bad that the 3 kills didn't add to his killstreak. He could have had dogs and set them loose in the middle east.

But lets be honest, the terroists would have camped on top of ladders and bunk beds in order to avoid said dogs.

Can we get subby banned fora week or so for mis-using the ironic tag?

No. They describe different things.

In their country, no Americans at the hotel. Was this not an anti-west attack or did they just screw up?
 
2011-06-29 12:41:25 PM  
They probably got the 8 kills by repeatedly spawning behind the other team.

Its like subby but dumb... dubby. yea. I'm tired.

Unless your talking about the bonus reward in which case, from the headline NATO Choppers kill three gunmen atop a Kabul hotel after one of the Afghan Army soldiers defending the place got an 8-killstreak bonus reward
 
2011-06-29 12:43:22 PM  
I wonder if they'd still require 40k reward points to stay there. I would think after this I could at least get a discount.
 
2011-06-29 12:53:10 PM  
I'm sorry but I play BFBC2 so I'm unfamiliar with this kill streak bullshiat. Next thing you know, they're have remote controlled cars with C4 strapped to them.

Based on the contents of the thread I am forced to assume the headline makes no sense whatsoever because I don't play a certain game?

Am I right?

Still don't agree. Only time I had a problem with BO's spawn was on the really small map(s). There were only occasional hiccups on the other maps. MW and W@W where horrible, and MW2 was only slightly better than those.

/though, haven't played any of them in 5 months.

That's great, NATO. Just great. You're only encouraging the terrorists to get SUCH a high enough killstreak that they'll be able to detonate a nuke. Damn it all.

I loved the car packages with Hardline Pro, cause it was only gonna be very rarely that I would ever get a 8+ killstreak and the care packages gave me a chance at some of the neater kill streaks.

Being spawned on top of a claymore was always a joy.

Or being spawned, and looking around and see it's between 3 members of the other team.

MW2's competitor, BC2, lets you spawn on a teammate. Which is usually good except for when you spawn on your teammate that is getting shot full of holes like Murphy from Robocop.

I enjoy them now and again but overall just a pain to call in and as a person who gets atleast one dogs a game, it is semi useless. I run blackbird, dogs and napalm. The blackbird and dogs go hand in hand but I can usually get a napalm every death which makes it enjoyable to run. for me care packages really slow the game down.

I admit it's mostly because I'm just not that good at the style of game play.

I don't have the patience to camp and I can't twitch fast enough to do much good running around where whoever opens fire first wins.

I'm sure you are fine. True skill is attained by finding your playstyle. People will say there are two different play styles, camping (bleh) and run and gun. Technically this is true but there seems to be a bountiful mix of the two in between. camping for me is to boring and run and gun seems inconsistent so I naturally gravitate towards a middle ground. Staking out one postion with a good flow of traffic and constantly moving is a great way to build up your killstreaks. This is the sole reason I only play objective based, may I suggest domination :) Also, never underestimate your postion on a team. I like playing with kids who get uavs and counters constantly rather than a team full of people running blackbirds and dogs. Unless your team is really skilled you'll see one "big" killstreak the enitre game. So though you may not be the best at putting up some good k/d, it takes many different players to make a great team.

On a side note, hardline and uav is easy peasy. two kills and you got it. this is extremely helpful so keep up the good work. Oh and find a team to play with if you don't already have one. People make this game fun and help you play better.

Just typing this out because I'm bored and call of duty runs deep in my blood. Can't wait to get out of work and get home to playing.

That killers were killed?

Me? Spy plane, SR-71, Chopper Gunner.
Then Ghost Pro, Sleight of Hand Pro, & Ninja Pro with a silenced Commando & the M72 to shoot down the other guy's spy plane. Because I'm a team-player like that. Don't ask me about my KDR. This comment was nerdy enough already.
