  • Streek9999

  • Boba

    this game is the BIGGEST garbage FPS i have ever played. they need to compensate for this POS game by acutally FIXING it and compensate to the people by giving them something free, like free MSP or something

  • the akimbo’s got buffed watch this

    • Hound

      Old video yee scrub.

  • Is there more detail on the buffs and nerfs. 

  • ” Nerf to all Akimbo weapons (reduced fire rate)” from what ive seen that is BS

    There’s something else that’s been changed. Voice volume in the options will no longer affect player VoIP chat. This really sucks, since now I’m back to having to mute all players whenever I join a server, and occasionally mute people that have just joined in the heat of battle.
    Also, it LAAAAAAGS. Before this update, around every 10th server was laggy. Now, I’ve played three games, all three were lagging like hell, in the end, my PS3 froze up so I had to shut it down using the PSU switch.
    Anyway, that was the last nail in this game’s coffin, I’m gonna play BF3 now ^^

    Hi All

    Downloaded 1.08 update today 🙂 now stopped playing MW3 due to Lag 🙁 all fine until I get 6 or 7 kills. Then the Lag is so bad I can’t even move without running into every object in the map.

    So for me it’s back to BF3 and I will just have to wait and see if they get this sorted, but with the way this game is being……well let’s just say it’s the last COD game I will be buying 🙁 good game, but poorly implemented and very poorly supported. Try going on the MW3 homepage and finding anything out ? Lol I have seen more action from the morgue then from anyone in charge on there site.

    We can not even call ourselves mushrooms, as they are kept in the dark and feed on bullshit !!!!

    But we are just kept in the dark lol.

    If it wasn’t for sites like this, I would not have even the slights clue on what the he’ll is going on with MW3 !!!!!

    the patch did nothing but screw more things up as every patch does in cod 


    Insane lag now 10 out of 10 games I’m watching a slideshow I wish they just left it alone at least before maybe 1 out of 10 games I would see bad lag but this is ridiculous.
