Not 1 gun was really overpowered? AK-47, 74u? Or the MP5 with the silencer attachments? Worse than the overkill usage of UMP45's in MW2.
No Killstreaks raining out of the sky every 12 seconds like MW2 or nade spamming? You can't even spam airstrikes or helicopters (excluding chopper gunner or AC130) in MW2 like you can in cod4, you forgetting how badly balanced Wet Work's was with the obsessive use of frag x 3 and the onslaught of airstrikes and helicopter's in the map with nowhere to hide besides inside containers or the top part's of the ship. Or the incredibly crazy amount of frag x3 thrown from one side of the map in Killhouse to the other side which gave you 80% chance of nading the whole other team's spawn point.
I don't know where your basing your statistics from, but you need to get some of your fact's straight.
explain to me how it WASN'T the most balanced of all the modern cod's? i never said it was perfect but infinitely more fair and skill based when compared to all the other cods that came after (not counting waw, never played that, never cared to)
all the guns you mentioned weren't overpowered, they were just used alot because people liked them, those werent one shot kill weapons, they didnt have insane rates of fire that other guns couldnt compete with, people just used them because they liked them
you only pointed out 2 maps, where it was possible to rack up kills with killstreaks if things just happened to go your way that match, but it wasnt a every game type of deal and by and large the rest of the maps more than made up for them, also i dont know what you mean as far as spamming air strikes, i dont see how its possible since your kills stack and if you failed to use your prior killstreaks from 5 and got to 7 you lost your airstrike and went straight to chopper
i mean if honestly you dont think cod4 was the most balanced and had the best maps as a whole, then i would really like to hear which cod you think was the pinnacle of the series and your reasons for them
also i dont pretend to be some massive cod elitist or expert, im a battlefield player if anything, but i also enjoy cod and fps games period
