Not as bad on Playstation - its a small download but still takes about an hour to 'copy' it into place

And it looks like the last update has a bug in one specific weapon

Famas under barrel shotgun has been fixed and Bruen has been nerfed. I don’t know if any of these broken mechanics actually effect multiplayer to any major degree, I think most are Warzone specific.

I’m totally and utterly addicted to Warzone, I love it. I was so bad at it to start but I’m getting better and could happily play it all day.

The Famas didnt seem to work anything special on multiplayer , however the night that was posted i played a few games of plunder using it and it was great but the 6 shot limit was a big problem :-)

I have had a few runs of really good games and then a few runs of terrible ones where i land / get killed / get binned out of the Gulag , or win the gulag / land / get killed again

I'm not as keen on the pick-up guns this time around , or at least i've not found the ones that work for me as well as the last season

I'm on most nights between about 9 and 12 if you want to play either multiplayer / warzone or the campaign missions stuff - at the end of last season I went through and completed most of them with randoms but they are quite fun to do when you get the flow working

The new set of warzone missions include an annoying one where you need to climb 3 towers in a single game - I found that easiest to do in plunder so you dont need to worry about the gas (2 towers at the far south and 1 tower near the TV station)

Of the ground loot guns this season, I like the Oden best of the ARs and the Delivery Boy of the SMGs (that’s the P90 with silencer and Burger Town skin). The Origin 12 shotgun is a bit of a beast; if you can hit every shot you’ll win a 1v1 every time. Good for clearing buildings.

I’m considering levelling up the Oden and trying it as my loadout gun for a few games.

We should organise a game night one night when Jen and I can play with you guys Zaphod and Matt. At the moment we have too many IRL friends playing but if we planned ahead we could make our excuses with them.

How did the win feel Matt? Jen and I were standing up cheering like Scotland had won the six nations when we got our first one lol. I adore this CoD for Warzone and love how hard it is. We got two wins in one night the first time we won (back to back) but we’ve not had a win for a few weeks now.

Thanks i'll keep an eye out for those - I seem to remember the Oden being just far to slow to get initial shots out with in Multiplayer so you always lost to SMG's / Shotguns and just about every AR

My loadout gun in Warzone just now is he M13 but that's just because its solid and dependable , After watching that video series you posted i did also try the Ram but it didnt do anything special for me

I've also unlocked (and got the various attachments) for the new AR the AN-94 which i used to love in BLOPS2 but it just again feels to slow to get shots out in this one

I'm on every night anyway so probably better getting a day that would work for Myp - or if you want to just play some multiplayer a bit of a warning and organization on here i'm sure would bring Pundy / Bobby / Curio at least

I’m around most nights but need a bit of forward planning as I’m often on Deep Rock Galactic at the moment.

I can’t do Thursdays or Sundays.

That game last night where I managed a solo squad wipe of the bounty hunters was probably the best movement I’ve had in the game. I killed one upstairs as he was coming into the room I was in, killed the second on the stairs then back up and jumped out the first floor window, circled round the house and came in the back door to kill the one waiting downstairs.

I’ve been levelling up the Kilo recently. Was using the FAL a lot and in some engagements it was brilliant but it lacked the range of the other AR’s and so many Warzone fights are at a decent bit of range so I sometimes felt like I was waiting while my team mates fought. The kilo with the 3.0x VLK scope is very nice, minimal recoil and the sight is clean unlike some of them which can obstruct your view to some extent.

Obviously its gone again but any time either just Shipment or Shoot the Ship is on the rotation the quickest way to level the guns is play a few rounds of that with a double weapon XP token going - anything other than snipers only takes a few games to max out

The FAL is another that went through a recent buff and nerf cycle so it was rubbish - it got really good and then went back to just a bit better than it was before

If your not aware in the main lobby hit the L3 trigger to get to your available tokens and remember the tokens countdown in real time so your 30 minutes of double XP will be more like 15 of actual game play

Also rumours about what’s coming in CoD 2020c including one prominent CoD leaker @ModernWarzone saying there will be a Zombie Royale mode...

53 minutes it thinks to download for me - and I bet theres another hour of 'copying file' after that

They tried to integrate the Zombies Royal mode last time in BLOPS4 where the Zombies were sorta NPC characters on the map and you could get points and drops for killing them but i dont think it really worked

I am interested in what they are going to do with Zombies at all this time just because the last one was a real mess and they ditched the main story / lead guy for it before the end of the last games 'season' - although it says on the wiki he didnt leave till Feb he went silent a long time before that

https://callofduty.fandom.com/wiki/Jason_Blundell

It does mean they could have a fresh start (they have tried that a few times) but the fans want Takeo / Dempsy / Nikoli / Richtophen in there somewhere

It's weird, so many people who like the zombies mode are massive fans of it and almost seem to love the Tryarch series specifically because of it but I just didn't ever get into it despite absolutely adoring the zombie genre in general, and specifically games like Left 4 Dead or survival game modes like the one in Gears. Will give it another try when this next one comes out.

Played for a while last night and had the worst night I've had on this game. We won on Duos the night before, and on Quads the night before that so I don't know if that pushed us up in the SBMM or something but we just couldn't get started. I think we only collected our loadout a couple of times and I lost nearly every 1v1 and think I only came back from the gulag twice. I hope it was a one off.

You should play with me then. I’ve only played a couple of times so will doubtless drag you down in more ways than one.

Downside, my mic still works.

Zombies just really clicked for me at the end of BLOPS1 after i'd 'finished' the multiplayer and everyone else stopped playing the normal game I just really started spending a long time playing the zombies modes and with practice got further and further into them / unlocked more of the general stuff and loved finding some of the secrets (this was all before youtube videos and lets plays on how to do each thing) - the following versions were good and BLOPS3 Zombies is probably the best of this generation just because they added all the old maps and stuff in

The WorldWar2 one was rubbish and then BLOPS4 was a mess but I'm interested in seeing what they will do with it now

I did also notice that the new game has a standard edition and a 'cross generation' version for £5 more which will work on both PS4 and PS5

He'd send you ten messages, but you wouldn't receive any. Then you'd send him one message which he'd get straight away. He will proclaim this "bullshit".
