A CoD4 Disappointment |

I was reading this interview with some CoD4 guys over at 1UP, when I found the following part:

GFW: You can carry only two weapons at once?

VZ: Yeah, you get one primary weapon — an assault rifle, submachine gun, sniper rifle, whatever — and a sidearm. Attachments work with pistols, too. Then there’s the Dual Wield perk, which lets you swap out the pistol for a second primary weapon. You sacrifice Stopping Power or Juggernaut, but you’re packing two weapons.

You need to use a perk to be able to have something besides a pistol as your second weapon. It’s quite common right now for me (and many many others) to have a rifle as your main gun, and then pick up a shotgun as a secondary, close-quarters gun. Or a machine gun and shotgun. Or whatever. Now to get this previous free feature, now I’ll have to pay with a perk slot. I don’t like this at all.

    Oh well scratch it from my list. I hate dual wielding and if they have it then it means you will need to use it. Dual wielding is the dumbest thing ever added to games IMO.

  • I don’t think you understand. They mean the ability to carry two weapons, not the ability to use two weapons.

  • Burten

    Call it realism..
    Try carring a machinegun and a shotgun while clearing a building 😉

    I dont mind this to be honest, i tend to use the same weapon anyway and its pretty lucky if i stay alive long enough to change weaopn…..

  • bob davey

    Not a big deal at all. Dont be a baby ps3blog boy.

  • And don’t be a prick, “bob davey”.

    It IS a big deal, because the ability to have both a long range and short range weapon to switch between is really handy.

  • Jason

    Speaking as someone from the SOCOM 1-3 world I would say that having to choose one primary weapon makes for more challenging and cooperative gameplay. Everyone in our clan seems to have focused on a particular style of play/weapon so team collaboration of a sniper and heavy gunner are encouraged. Plus when you run out of ammo and manage to take down someone with your pistol you get MAJOR bragging rights. 🙂

    Having said that, I’m not a big fan of this perk business either. Sounds too much like Unreal Tournament.

    Bad title for this post there Henning…

    When I first saw it I thought maybe something like no Mic Support…not “oh I can’t carry 4,000 guns at once”.

  • bob davey

    Your short range weapon is the hand gun, so switch to that. Wow, what a baby.

    The Prick.

    ps I agree with derrickgott007, title makes this more serious than this non-issue.

  • Dartmerc

    Well if you want that advantage of a second weapon over other players who only have the pistol.. use the perk.
    That really is pretty simple isn’t it?
    I might as well complain that I cant run forever or reload fast or be completely silent without spending my perk points.

  • Yeah, yeah, I know.

    I’m just a little ticked that I have to use a perk, when it was free in CoD2.

    I know this isn’t the end of the world, I just thought I’d mention it…
