meh, Hardcore is the way to go. I like headquarters just because it is a quicker pace that reflects the fast paced nature of CoDs mp gameplay.
I like going 70-40 in a round while only using shotties and pistols...
plus it gets rid of the crosshair and map and all that other help.
I worked QA for an old UT'99 mod called Infiltration which was realism based so I've always despised crosshairs and persistent maps or tells.
although I did like "WAR" in WaW, that was a fun gamemode.
Hardcore search and headquarters and barebones are the only game types I play.
I'm back in the game. Started up MW2 this week. I still dominate.
what if you like to play both for different reasons?
Yes, the akimbo 1887 were over powered and were patched pretty early in the games life.
The ACR is a very good gun but it's not god mode like you make it out to be. I'd much rather use a 40 damage gun or an SMG with the same if not higher damage and increased mobility.Ok you only play hardcore where player health is 30 so the ACR probably is god mode there.
I probably come off as a MW2 fan boy but call of duty 4 is by far my favorite with black ops second, world at war third(I've never played it) and MW2 last(I own the PC version).

Of the 360 CoDs. Mw2 is by far my least favorite.
MW #1 by a mile
As for the game not being designed with HC in mind is $#@!ty to hear.
I have never liked having to put multiple rounds into someone for a kill.
HC is the only way I can play without wanting to put my fist through soneones frontbottom.
COD2 will always be my favorite. Campaign and multiplayer.
#1 MW2 (Yes, dead serious)
#3 That's it.
Never liked WAW or Black ops.
SO excited about this game...I returned World at War and Black ops within the first month of buying each...Modern Warfare versions have been so much better
Do people still get online and play WAW? I might have to get on tonight and play a little.
Less than two months away!
Here are some of the information about MW3 I found on another board that has compiled all the multiplayer stuff.
Tier 1: You'll have to choose between faster flanks, faster kills after kills, ample ammo, avoiding air support, and marking enemies for teammates.
Explosive damage paints the target on the mini-map.
Bullet damage paints the target on the mni-map.

Spawn with more ammo.

Every two assists count as a kill towards your killstreak. Deathstreaks require 1 less death.
Undetectable by UAV, portable radar, thermal and heartbeat sensors.
Immune to CUAV and EMP. No red crosshair or name when targeted.
Two primary weapons
Second primary can have 2 attachments
Tier 3: You'll have to choose between finding traps, stealth, mobility advantage in a firefight, making sure your teammates kill a wounded enemy in hiding, and more concentrated hip-firing.
Identify enemy targets at longer range.
Longer hold breath.
Move faster while aiming.
Delay enemy Claymore explosions.
Detect enemy explosives and tactical insertions.

Thanks for postin ILTL.........online play is going to the shizzzy
Thanks for MP info, sounds awesome.
One month and about 14 hours to go fellas...........
Placed my Hardened edition pre-order at the Mueller Best Buy. Will have it at midnight, and have the next day off...
Do we get any perks or deals for pre-ordering it? I may want to pre-order at game stop ($5) then wait to read how the online game play is and whether or not tons of people use it. I don't even care if it's a lot like MW2, I loved that $#@!. And if they just made small improvements here and there to basically make a better version of mw2, that's fine by me. I just need to know if online play is poppin
I was hoping for a special gun or extra map or something...
I saw an ad yesterday for some "choose your perk" bonus at GameStop, but have no idea what it meant. Just went online. some kind of lame promotion. skip.
I pre-ordered through Best Buy and didn't get sh*t. Anyone going to pre-order the Call of Duty Elite? I'm just a fan of the game so I might but it's probably just another way to get money out of me.

$#@!. Guess I might need to dust off one of the old games to play some. Get back in the swing.
Start prestiging now in Black Ops or MW2 since you will get a prestige point in MW3 if you prestige in those previous games.
Is this limited to one prestige? Also, I heard you get to "pick" bonuses for prestige (unique camo, extra class slots, tags, etc). I hope this would stack accordingly if true..
Can't wait! Traded in a game at BB and got $30 off when I pre-ordered!
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Video-Ga...at23290005001050% More Trade-In Value
when you trade in games and pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception or Saint's Row: The Third.
Definitely worth trading in at Best Buy imo. They will give gift card credit for any amount over the 65$ for one of those pre-orders so take advantage of the extra 50% and trade in all of your old stuff.
Whomever put the PS3 and Xbox 360 game tags.........can you repost? I can't seem to locate it and $#@! is about to GO DOWN IN T minus 15 days
As Activision explains: "Every time you prestige in MW3, you'll receive a prestige token. Use it to unlock rewards like double XP for a limited time, an extra custom class, or choose one piece of gear from your custom class to keep unlocked from rank 1 of future prestiges."
Anyone who prestiged in MW2 and BO will automatically get some tokens to start unlocking stuff beofre you start playing
