My First MOAB!

A couple of weeks ago, after Christmas I got my first ever MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs/Massive Ordinance Air Blast) and I can tell you it’s a non-nucular weapon. I achieved it on the map Interchange (Not my favourite map!) on Kill Confirmed using the Specialist Kill-streak reward. My Class:

Primary Weapon- MG36- Silencer- Kick

Secondary Weapon- Stinger

Lethal- Frag

Tactical- Flash

Perk 1- Blind Eye

Perk 2- Assassin

Perk 3- Marksman

Specialist Stricke Package- Slight Of Hand, Quick Draw, Scavanger

I must admit I didn’t use just the LMG I ran out of ammo and picked up my mates ACR 6.8 with silencer, which got most the kills. At the time my heart was pounding and my hands so sweaty! It was a tense time. I have come close to second on Bakaara in Demolition, I was going 20-0 with a PP90M1 and Acr 6.8 both silenced. Then in the second round I made the mistake of rushing into their sporn and well, lets say it didn’t go well!

New MW3 game modes!

Robert Bowling, Community man reveals on twitter that new MW3 game modes are coming!

‘Ready for new game modes for Modern Warfare 3’ he asks to the public. ‘I’ve go some surprises for you for the weekend. I’ll confirm full details tomorrow’

The new game modes could be anything but for now all we can do is sit and wait like excited little boys. It’s like an early Christmas present!

MW3: at War with Hackers

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has gone to war with the dirty little hackers. Once you may have played a on-line game, and came across a guy who was flying or hiding in a rock. Most of these people are hackers and cheaters gaining an unfair advantage over us normal people. Well Activision says no more banning over 1600 people in the first few weeks of release:

”Any attempt to cheat,hack or glitch in MW3 will no be tolerated”, says creative strategist Robert Bowling on twitter. ”1600+ bans issued. Updates in works. Please cont. to report offenders.”

The hackers seemed to have gained the ability to exit the on-line map and hide in ‘unauthorised’ places.

”We will verify reports with in-game stats, in-game video recordings and other data to verify you were cheating” Robert bowling tweeted.

The bans have affected both PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 users. Rival game ‘Battlefield 3’ has had to ban players who found ways to gain thousands of points in matches.

MW3 low Metacritic User Score

A few Days ado MW3 rated 2.7 out of 10, pretty embarrassing for such a big title I know. What shocked me the most was Glen Schofield, developer of MW3 coming out and practically begging on twitter for people to go and raises it, he said:

‘I don’t usually do this but, if you like MW3 go 2 metacritic.com and help our user score. It’s suspiciously low. Be honest but help if u agree’

Metacritic is a site that you can rate or grade entertainment like music , films and games. It is a great place to go to if you can’t decide if you want something or not, just remember it’s the public voting on the score.

The score has recently shot up to 8.7, but will you help?

MW3: First Impressions

MW3 has been out for a bit now and I have really enjoyed playing it. From the small amount of time I played, I sort of got to grips with the weapons and a few perks. It is a cross between MW2 and Black ops, you have to take it slow yet still be aggressive. The way the guns level up is so pleasing, the maps are bight and colourful – unlike the depressing black ops maps. The proficiencies really pay of and the camo’s are really cool. The class to start of with, I would recommend is the UMP ‘rush class’ or the Noobtube ‘assault class’ ( the noobtubes are so much less powerful). I haven’t got to grips with the maps as so many people probably haven’t yet. My tip is to take it slow for the first couple of games on a map and look for the camping and high traffic spots – not to mention the cut throughs and short cuts. The new perks are so hard to remember for they have been renamed and revamped – in this blog I won’t go there. The decent guns are the Scar-l and M4A1 and fell good and handle well. Start of with the ‘Support Strike Pakage’ to maximise your point steaks and help make up for those noobie instances at the start of the game. It also helps your team mates. Another bonus is that if you die half way through your streak then your hard work doesn’t die with you, you keep building on this type of point streak. Once you have got to know the maps and are ‘at one with your gun’ move on to the ‘Assault Strike Package’ for the bigger better kill streaks! Hope this helped – remember to subscribe up for updates, there will be more in depth blogs about the game. Good look in your killings!

MW3: 1 Day Left!

The time is almost upon us where we stop playing MW2 or Black ops and put MW3 in our disc tray. Yes folks it is 1 whole day till Modern Warfare 3 comes out. I just can’t contain my self. I will have 2 prestige tokens – from prestiging in Black ops and MW2 plus 4 hours double XP which I got from pre-ordering of Game. I will keep you updated on: what I think of the game, which guns are the best, the best camping spots on maps and tones of other stuff. So follow this blog by clicking at the top right hand corner and entering your email address.

MW3 for $1725

Mw3 has been mistakenly sold early on eBay for $1725. Now, I know a lot to pay for a video game but you’ve got to admire the balls and money of this guy. He has the game early he can be 50 levels a head by the time we get it! One copy was placed on eBay and sold for nearly 29 times the retail price. It was bid for 88 times in total.

Early play may carry a harsh price. Xbox live’s Director of Policy and Enforcement Steven Tolouse tweeted ‘re-release play not authorised. Please be patient playing early may impact your account’. Activision has put these rumours at rest though saying they have no interest in banning players who get the game earlier. They just ask for ‘everyone to wait for Tuesday when everyone can play the game together’

If you were at that auction, at what price would you stop bidding? Leave your answer in the comments:

Call of Duty: Double XP

For the first time ever there is double XP across the whole Call of Duty franchise, for the whole weekend, that’s Call of Duty 4, World at War, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. My advise is use this to prestige and in doing so you will get prestige tokens in MW3 which you can buy stuff with, like an extra create-a-class or special emblems. So in Mw3 you could start of with 6 create-a-class and be ahead of the game. Beat you friends!

Battle Field 3

Today I was browsing YouTube and came across a ‘Gadget Show’ clip of a BF3 simulator where you are the soldier. You move – He moves, you shoot – he shoots … you get it. The full ‘article’ will be on Monday 24th October and looks a cracker. But the question must be asked, will there be a Modern Warfare 3 version? Watch the clip here.
