Of course that's not true 100% of the time, but most of the time it is, as is with all "one shot/one kill" games. If someone gets the drop on you, you're screwed. I understand that's more "realistic" or whatever, but sometimes realistic doesn't always equal fun.

Maybe I'm just spoiled to the best multi player FPS of all time: Team Fortress Classic.

Now there's a fun game! 9 different classes to choose from, and you don't die from one bullet. That's why I like it more than COD4. In this, you actually duel with people. You can go toe to toe, and the person with the best movement, aiming and timing wins. It's not just "oh i saw you first, you die." Call me crazy, but I'm not at all impressed with COD4 multi.


To each their own, I rarely die from one shot though. You must either be playing hardcore mode or are sniper fodder. In close combat, usually takes a p90 yielding player 3-4 hits to take you down (it's like a bb gun).

You want to have fun? I recently put on shotty w/ UAV jammer & smoke gredades. Smoke, then run through and get behind enemy lines, and WOW what an adrenline rush. You can cause so much havoc it is unbeleivable. Since you have UV jammer, the lazy players pay you no mind unless they visibly see you (IMO the most important perk for most public servers). Surprisingly, I have a 3 to 1 k1ll ratio with the shotty and am usually in the top 1-3 scorers for the round. I always thought it was useless, but there in lies the surprise for my opponents. Close combat, shotty will usually win... even if outnumbered by 2 opponents.

It's a really nice change up and a pure rush ;-D

overrated as in the people that awarded it the game of the year, the amount the game sold or the rediculous amounts of people that are still playing the game?

ive seen the stats on the guns and what it actually takes to kill somone and there are very few guns that can kill you in one shot. first of all they need they stoping power perk, you not to have juggernaut...and need to be head shots. the following weapons also need to be used: m14...any sniper...shotgun. thats it (the m16 does it with stopping power, but thats actually a 3 shot burst). most guns take multiple shots even to the head so im not quite sure where you come up with the one shot kill thing unless TS was right and you are playing hardcore.

team fortress may be a great game...but its ruined by a community of eliteists. no thanks.

Yep, actually the headsho ts are annoying when you're going for golden gu ns. I can sneak behind a sn1per, and it takes 3 shots - point blank to the head - to finish the job with some of the sub-machine and assua lt rifles... no joke.

Well I didn't play long enough to get the extra armor perks or whatever it takes to be able to survive more than a shot or two. The point is... if you see someone before they see you, unless you're a complete klutz, you're going to win that battle. Which, like I said, is more realistic, but I don't think that necessarily means more fun in this instance.
