Assault Rifle Weapon Attachments

The next thing I'm going to talk about is my favorite weapon attachments for the Assault Rifles.

These attachments go for every assault rifle with a few exceptions, when it comes to the FAL-OSW and the SMR, I would use a reflex sight and select fire along with the adjustable stock. Aside from these exceptions I like to use the adjustable stock, fast mag, and the quick draw handle. The adjustable stock allows you to move faster while aiming. This enables your otherwise clunky and slow assault rifle to move around as if you were holding a sub-machine gun. The fast mag allows you to reload much faster than normal. This can turn the tide of battle in your favor in an instant. The quick draw handle increases your aiming speed. This allows you to get the drop on most enemies, and if you ask me, that's the biggest advantage in winning a gun fight. You'll notice that I have three attachments here. In order to use three attachments, you need to equip the primary gunfighter wildcard.

The Latest DLC Maps: Uprising

I'm going to go over two of my favorite maps from the latest DLC to come out of Black Ops II. They have already released two map packs, Uprising being the second one; and like in typical Call of Duty fashion, we can expect two more in the future. But for now, lets take a look at Uprising.

This map features both short corridors, in the middle, and long narrow streets, on the side. This makes it somewhat difficult in choosing a weapon. I recommend an assault rifle to deal with all possibilities. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this map is the volcano right next to the city you're fighting in. As you can see in the picture, it's erupting; the map has lava flowing through it in certain areas. This lava causes instant death if you touch it.

The most interesting thing about this map is that it's set on top of a giant skyscraper, don't fall off the edge. It has very narrow corridors throughout the entirety of it. For this reason, I recommend a good sub-machine gun, some frag grenades, and perks that allow you to run quickly without getting tired.

The Peacekeeper

This is a gun that was first introduced with the Revolution DLC (Downloadable Content). It has since gained a reputation for being one of the best guns in the game. The reason for this is because it has the mobility and fire rate of a sub-machine gun, and the accuracy of an assault rifle. This makes a deadly combination that, when handled properly, can be unmatched in multiplayer.

The stats of the Peacekeeper are shown above. This only confirms what I said before. The only downside of this gun is the low - medium penetration. Whether you're a Call of Duty veteran or a newbie just starting out, I highly recommend this gun to anyone.

Here's a video of me playing the map Plaza with the S12 shotgun. I go over my load-out before the game begins and during the match I talk about some tips on good ways to play the map.

Multiplayer at its Finest

Call of Duty has gained a reputation of being one of the greatest video games of all time. So what is it that's so great about this game? Yes, each iteration has an incredible single player campaign, but what really sets it apart from the competition is its illustrious and addicting multiplayer. I would argue that the only other run-and-gun style multiplayer shooter out there that even comes close to the awesomeness of this game is Halo. Now let be clear, I don't consider Battlefield a run-and-gun shooter. Battlefield is a great game and I would never dismiss it as a giant in the gaming industry, I just don't like comparing it to Call of Duty because I feel they both have different things to offer.

The latest Call of Duty to hit the shelves, Black Ops II, is as complex as it is simple. Let me explain, it's very easy to get into and can be as simple as pointing and shooting. But it also gets very complicated when you start focussing on things like: finding the load-out that works for you and mastering all the maps so you can maneuver through them like a pro. If you're at this point in your Call of Duty career, or if you're just looking for some good reads/videos, this blog is for you.
