Kind of surprised there's zero noise in here.

Sucking at any MP is OK as long as you have some fun.  I've pretty much sucked at most MP except Titanfall.

I have it for the One. Campaign so far has been pretty cool and the multiplayer is......indecisiondifferent.  Not bad, it feels like a new game so I can't tell yet if I going to like it or not. The MP is very fast and the jumping adds a level of depth the CoD games have been lacking. Be prepare to be frustrated though.

The multiplayer is different with the new vertical aspect you need to watch.  The pick 13 is very Black Ops like.  Overall not a bad game.  It seems to be much faster, well I guess that is what happens when you don't play COD for 6 months and pick the new game up.  

I had a couple connection issues where shots would not register, but nothing too bad.  At least not out of the norm with COD.

btw - Went to Best Buy yesterday when they opened to pick up pre-order and there was not one other person to get theirs. Definitely not like old releases.

Did something happen overnight?  Yesterday the frame rate was nice and smooth, today it's lousy.

Dunno, but yesterday on PC, I was doing okay - positive on the scoreboards, and today, I can't kill sh*t. I suspect lag compensation is screwing my super internets over.

I just went 11 / 0 by NOT running or jumping anywhere. It seems my hit register is awful if I sprint, and I mean w a a a a  y worse than any other COD game, but if I walk around, I get the kill. It must know I'm an old fogey laugh

I picked it up. It does play much differently than previous versions. Definitely faster.

After I hard booted my console the frame rate returned to a nice silky smooth experience.  This is just like the issue Titanfall had on the One. Since there was a dashboard update I bet they ticked resume games quickly back on which causes this issue.  In fact I'm positive they turned it back on because my games don't load from scratch after turning my console off.

Apparently the option has been removed from Power and Startup in settings.  Manual process now.

So I was getting frustrated, it's COD, normal right. Every game I was breaking even, but just couldn't get ahead - then I unlocked the IMR assault rifle !

4 round burst, great at distance which is perfect for old reaction times and skeet shooting kills - but good enough to drop a young punk close up.

THe other gamerr changer..the exo stim, or legalised wall hack - on close quarters maps it takes all the surprise out of who's around the corner - add the extended exo perk and you're an old timey shooting psychic.

Is it cheap playing, my pride says yes, but then again, anyone using the lazer on PC is a filthy, shameless kill slut, so I feel slightly less dirty than them devil.

What's your go - to - beat -  them - whippersnappers - set up ?

 For me the burst AR's just don't work out.  Many hate the SMG's but I do fine with them.  Depends on map and game type.  Played ranked for about 4 hours today.  No Wins.  Back to GenPop for me.  I like the game, mostly the pace.

I like the burst ARs and the MP11. I've been really getting my ass handed to me, but I think my playstyle is getting me killed to much.

I'm enjoying Advanced Warfare multiplayer on the Xbox One. I went prestige yesterday for the first time during the double XP weekend. Already ranked back up to level 30. I'm using mostly assault rifles. I always attach a foregrip for better accuracy. The quickdraw grip helps also. I use stealth perks as much as possible (Low Profile, Blind Eye, Cold-Blooded, Blast Suppressor). The only killstreak I've been using is the support version of the UAV with threat detection and/or extra time. I can get that most games since it stays active even after you die.

AK12 - accurate and very good at long range, but weak at short and medium ranges (the R.I.P. version of this gun deals more damage and is better at short/medium ranges)

BAL-27 - high fire rate makes this good all around, but recoil is a bit shaky especially with optics attached (foregrip helps a lot though)

ARX-160 - very accurate, but you usually need 2 bursts to kill

HBRa3 - good but fire rate is a little slow, I recommend you go for the higher damage 'Average Joe' version which you earn after getting 300 kills with this

IMR - not really a fan of this, slow reload

MK14 - really bad with slow fire rate and not enough damage

It seems like the weapons you start with are better than almost everything that you unlock later. Unlocking a weapon in this game is like waking up on Xmas morning and getting a lump of coal in your stocking since the weapons you unlock are worse than what you already have. A little disappointing, but that's okay. It does make it easier to prestige starting over at level 1. My only complaint with going prestige is that it can take a while to unlock the quickdraw grip for your weapons again. Overall I am liking Advanced Warfare, but most of my friends don't play it unfortunately. The only gametype I play is non-Hardcore Team Deathmatch, so we could maybe team up if you want to play that on Xbox One.

I like Average Joe red dot, foregrip, quickdraw. Same for any auto in the AR's

Ameli Crafty  same  attachments. Probably my favorite weapon.

ASM1 same  attachments

SN6 Ditto,  running with Money this go around.

Lightweight, low profile, blind eye, toughness.

UAV, missle strike with lock ons, bombing run.

I really like the MP in AW.

Yeah!  I'm playing the crap out of it.  It's a lot of fun.   A few problems though.  I'm on the 360 and I get discconnected from xbox live at least once a day.  But when that's not happening, I really enjoy it.
 

Fav guns:

BAL-27 a couple from the resupply crates are very good.  they have nerfed it on the 360.

AK-12  Long range low recoil high damage.

IMR   Prints it's own ammo - 4 shot burst, very accurate.

KF5 - best SMG.  first 5 shots of each mag have a much higher fire-rate.  It's a boss with rapid fire and extended mags.

Hardly ever use any exo abilities.  I use the semtex some, but the grenades, stuns and EMPs are all weak.

Love the UAV with extra assist points (but wish it was more than 5) and threat detection - even with just a party of two, you can wreck the other team with threat detection.  If you get three or four good players using that, you should BEAST every match.    I think the bombing run is awesome too.  I get some decent kills with it.  It's great if you're playing the objective modes: Dom, momentum, hardpoint.  I also really like to put "sentry" on the remote turret.  It's not great, but it shouldn't be.  I've gotten the Paladin once and got 10 kills with that, but I can't  seem get it any more so stopped trying.  System Hack is what I fear most.  I use hardwired on EVERY class.  I will use system hack myself too occasionally.  So I've found some weapons, classes and streaks I really like to use and I'm having fun.

I like dropping a hellfire missile strike on the enemies spawning after my bombing run.
