    You're right on about these perks for a wireless connection. These, the ACR and the Stinger are the items I spent prestige points on to have them available right from level one.

    By the way Ukla, do you care to explain what you had to do to earn the achievement in Saint's Row that is represented by the icon in the lower right corner of your signature banner?

    Fantastic idea, Enteleki!! I'm quite addicted to this game as well, no matter how poorly I play. I've had some great tips along the way and do better in some gametypes than others. Especially in Drop Zone. Works real well if you have a full Geezer team all willing to run just about the same perks. You can't go wrong...going in alone can be a complete disaster!

    If you play poorly, then there is no concept low enough to describe my level of play.

    Nice thread - lots of good advice and I like your CoD Zen, Enteleki. Om...

    Personally, I've found that my shooter schooling evolved its emphasis over time. I did a TON of research online for tips, strategies, and background before I started playing Gears and MW2 (I loved Halo but stayed out of multiplayer because it just didn't fit me). I tend to do way too much prep research, which is why I'm generally not allowed to cook.

    However, the biggest boost to both my enjoyment and skill level came from actually running with a group of other Geezers as a team versus Timmies. Big rooms filled with only Geezers were a blast, but that didn't happen often. Listening to BadDad, Kandy, Rhastus, and others helped a lot, especially when they advised me to avoid common beginner mistakes.

    But as I played more, I found I was now able to put all that other online research into better context and that helped some more. And now I think I've reached the point where it's mostly a matter of practice. I now know a lot of my bad habits, and I'm working on fixing them. I now know what guns fit my strengths and I mostly stick to them.

    It sounds sappy, but THIS place and YOU Geezers are the reason I enjoy multiplayer games online - even when I'm on my own in a room full of Timmies.
    *sniff*
    I love you guys.

    Awe, shux...you're the shweetest!! I still love getting tips from Geezers that really get into this game and do really well. It's helped me tremendously. I do tend to stick to my comfort weaponery/killstreaks...don't have the giblets to try new weapons as it usually fails me. Kind of like prestiging with this title... Now in BlOps, I was all over the prestige mode!

    It is a story line quest where you storm a a cargo ship to "free" some street walkers from a rival gang. It is not exactly heroic in that you can either put em back on the street earning money for you or you can sell em back to the guys that were holding them captive.

    The Acr is definitely my go to assault rifle. In black ops I favored burst fire rifles but that doesn't work as well in MW3

    Also flash bangs are much better than concussion grenades in this and a trophy system is your friend in objective games.

    Side note: IW and MW3 have released multiple statements essentially saying that the kill cam is NOT "accurate." It is simply there so you can see the location/way that you died. So don't get too caught up in the "I shot him 4000 times and the camera didn't even show it." I learned this the hard way, but it relieves a lot of frustration when you accept it!!

    IMHO, I would run concussion grenades over emp or flash bang. If anyone is looking to learn the ropes, or just needs a group you can always shoot me an invite/message!

    Spot on advice from Timmy on running the concussion grenades.

    Just to pile onto his other statement, the killcam is basically worthless. Unless I really want to see where someone is I never ever watch it. As soon as I die I'm mashing the X button to respawn and skip through the killcam. All watching the killcam does is make you angry and as Timmy said, it's not a 100% representation of what happened.

    ETA: Oh, and watch out for Timmy offering to teach you the ropes, you never know what that might actually mean......
