First I want to let every one know that the term “nerf” should only be used to reference the toy company that produces plastic guns that shoot foam darts. I don’t know who decided that it was a term best suited to reference toning down weapons in CoD but I’m not a fan.
On a more important note, STOP SAYING THINGS ARE OVERPOWERED. Was that sentence a little overpowered for you? Seriously though, the word is being used way too much to describe anything and everything with regards to Call of Duty Black Ops. I mean it’s starting to make the MP40 complaints look like compliments.
Let’s take the AK-74u for example.
10 year old forum poster: “omg teh 74u iz soo overpwerd!”
A lot of people use the AK-74u, myself included. Some like to use it exclusively (not me). But thats the gun that works for them! If you pick up a gun and it works for you/you are winning with it, wouldn’t you want to use it all the time? Also, everyone paid the $60 or whatever for the game, shouldn’t they be able to use whatever gun makes them happy? I’m not saying I don’t get pissed sometimes, hell I complained many times about the MP40. But I’ve never seen such garbage flying around every CoD forum about “overpowered this” and “nerf that”
And that ladies and gents is what grinds my gears.
