Inspired by Producto!

Are you a technician like Hark- who finds every possible exploit in a map and use them to your advantage?

Are you kill stealing S.O.B. like Kato who cherry picks 50% of his kills (with love Kato)?

Are you role player who does one thing and does it well?

Do you snipe?

Do you camp a spot and shoot people in the back?

Does your style differ from other MP FPS/3PS games?

Also what's a sweet kit or two that you rely on or use in specific situations?


Playstyle:

As for me I do a little bit of everything.  I like to aggressively attack the enemy but also take advantage of the environment- not to the degree of Hark, but find the best spot on the map and blast people.  So I guess my play style would be a mobile/strategic camping combination.  I'm usually on the move, unless there's a super sweet spot  (and I have claymores) then I'll set up and rain down the bad news.

Kits:The M16 is a great all range gun useful for CQ and LR engagements and nearly every map is set up so that it can be used effective from any distance in any play style.

Primary Kit:
M16, single flash, single frag, 2 claymores, Deep Penetration, Stopping Power

Secondary Kit:
Silenced MP5, Claymores or 3 Frags (map dependent), Stopping Power, Deep Penetration

Secondary Alt Kit (AKA The Cheap Kill Special)
Silenced MP5, 3 Frags, Martyrdom, Sonic Boom

Alt Kit (Rare Use)
Shotgun, Juggernaut, Extreme Conditioning

As for how my playstyle matches up in other games: My COD style is largely how I tackle most MP games with the exception of Halo3- which is sheer aggression and relentless pursuit.

I'd have to say my style is highly mobile but cautious and aware.  I rarely run guns blazing into a firefight, and I instead keep moving and occasionally stop for a moment to pop off a few shots when I find a good position, especially when on higher ground or when I see movement.  But I never sprint around corners and I try to avoid leaving myself open to attacks from my six.  I rarely go into buildings or spend much time in 2nd floor windows and instead prefer to remain on the ground and use topography to my advantage, and I'm constantly aware of movement and also of my surroundings.  I can just tell when an area or situation just feels bad, and if so I'm on the move again.  I also keep an eye peeled off into the distance and if I see enemies moving in a particular direction I'll warn teammates and then take a roundabout route to head them off.  Usually they'll come around a corner and before they can finish exclaiming "HOLY SHI....<<BLAM>>" they've stumbled across a flash bang and then it's as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.  But I wouldn't consider my style "run-and-gun".  I approach Halo 3 with a "run-and-gun" style, never standing still and always firing on the fly.  But with COD4 I'll try to keep mobile, but I'll take a few moments every so often to take in my surroundings, scan the area for enemies, and fire off a few rounds when possible.  But I try to keep from staying in any one spot for very long.  I'm always mobile and aware.

I almost always play with the M16.  Granted, the three-shot-burst can be a bit hairy at times, but I recently unlocked the double-tap perk and absolutely love it.  My kit of choice is the M16 with deep penetration and double tap (the double-tap makes the M16 lethal and you can fire off shots an order of magnitude faster - the first time I tried it I actually said, "holy shit!" out loud because I couldn't believe the improvement), and I usually go into battle with frag grenades and flash-bang grenades.  I have yet to try claymores, and whenever I try other weapons I always miss my M16, especially with double-tap.

I typically run out of ammo with the fully automatic weapons, and so the M16 helps me to conserve ammo, aim a little more steady, and it has pretty good stopping power as well.  I just don't really like any of the other weapons in the game.  I'll sometimes use something different to unlock the red dot sight, but then I'm back to the M16, especially if I have a bad round.

I would say my playstyle is much like Pete's.  I take most of my skills from years of tactical sim gaming, and usually use that approach.  That is, take things slow, let the enemy create opportunities for engagement.  I rarely engage someone that I don't think I have a good chance to take down.  I miss the support role in BF2/Joint Ops/BF2142.  I love taking a defensive position, going prone, and laying down cover fire with a big gun like the Saw-249.  I have yet to really try it in COD4, I'm not sure if the maps are big enough to hold a position for long enough, before the enemy descends on my position.  Right now I'm just trying to rank up and get unlocks, so my go-to kit has been the M4 with Reddot, Extra Stun Grenades, Stopping Power and Martyrdom.  I have had some success with the MP5, but I find it rewards a "spray and pray" type of firing, and is actually less useful with the sights.

Everytime I try to run and gun in COD4 like I would in Halo 3 it ends quickly in disaster.

Primary Kit
Ak 74U Silencer
Gold Deagle

Perk 1:Bandolier
Perk 2:Uav Jammer
Perk 3:Steady Aim

In stock CoD 4 I do pretty well with that kit it's mostly about getting those guys who don't expect it. Feel pretty safe when they have their UAV up and wham I take em. Main weakness range/stopping power.

Secondary kit
G36C Red Dot
Gold Deagle

Perk 1: Bandolier
Perk 2: Stopping Power
Perk 3: Steady Aim

Alternate to above kit

Ak 47 Red Dot
Gold Deagle

Perk 1: Bandolier
Perk 2: Double Tap
Perk 3: Steady Aim

Primary Kit
M16, Single Frag, Single Flash, Bandolier, Stopping Power, Deeper Impact

I take Bandolier over claymores because I often find myself running out of ammo on the M16 before I die.

Secondary
P90 w/Silencer, Single Frag, Single Smoke, UAV Jammer, Steady Aim

This one is freakin beautiful in regular modes and the enemy has a UAV up. If you have your own UAV up you can watch all the little red dots converge on your teammates, leaving you to work your way around the back edge and pick them off.

Hardcore Only
M14w/ Acog, G35w/Silencer, Single Frag, Single Smoke, UAV Jammer, Dead Silence

Heavy
RPDw/Grip, Single Frag, Single Smoke, Stopping Power, Steady Aim

And my last is the sniper class but that's pretty standard. Stopping Power, Iron Lungs, Claymores.. and whichever sniper rifle I feel like using before the round.

As far as playstyle I tend to just play and change my style/tactics based on the game I'm in. If I start out sniping and it works well all game.. then that's what I'll do. If I start sniping and discover quickly that my teammates can't really keep any kind of map control I usually switch to my main config with the M16. If for some reason that doesn't help I cylce over to the Silencer/UAV Jammer class.

I can generally always find a class that works out whatever game I'm in. I guess if I have a style it's just to try and adapt to the flow of the game.

I hate waiting.
I hate random grenade tossers.
Most of all I hate helicopters.
Every kit I have carries an RPG. Those two are strictly for endgame fun.

My playstyle depends on the map and gametype.  Team Deathmatch I run and gun on most maps (my K/D ratio isn't that great).  With Vacant I'm a bit more cautious, hanging out where "B" would be, or circling the edge of the map.  Overgrown, I typically stay on the street side, not the farm side, because there are more places to hide and its really easy to pick off people coming from the 1/2 building, from the middle building or from the gas station.  Typically, I don't use the map exploits on any because by the time it takes to get them (Rooftops on Overgrown, Tree on Backlot) and I usually get killed trying.

Domination is pretty much capture the close point, then try to sneak my way to the opposite side for a flank or capture point take over.  Main Kit is for starters, then depending on the map, snipe or silent kits.



Main Kit:

(As of now) MP44 - just using it till I get the headshots done, then it will be my Gold AK
Gold Deagal
Frag x3
Stopping Power
Deep Impact

Sniping Kit:

Whatever Rifle needs headshots (currently .50 cal.)
Silenced Pistol
Bandolier
Stopping Power
Iron Lungs

Small Map/Close Quarters Kit Vacant/Shipment

MP5
Gold Deagle
Frag x3
Sonic Boom
Martydom

Silent Running
Silenced MP5
Silenced Pistol - Usually pick up a dropped weapon to replace it.
Bomb Squad
UAV Jammer
Dead Silence

My playstyle depends on who I'm playing against.  Against noobs I go aggresive usually with a silenced kit.  Against clans and experienced players I will camp like a mother f%!*er but I might stop camping if I see an opportunity to flank.  I am a .50 cal whore (there, I admitted it).

Favourite Kit:
G3 (just an amazingly accurate weapon at medium to long range)
Stopping Power
Deep Impact

Aggresive Kit
:
Silenced P90
UAV Jammer
Dead Silence

Support Kit
:
M249 + Red Dot (I know, everyone prefers RPD but I like the stability of this without a grip)
Stopping Power
Deep Impact

I prefer capturing and defending key points of the map (house with attic on Overgrown, etc), so I'm not much of a "run'n'gunner.

Loadout 1 - (Backlot, Bog, Crash, Crossfire, District, Strike, Overgrown)

Gun - Either the G36c or AK-47 (Red Dot on both)
Pistol - 1911 .45 silenced (Desert Eagle occasionally, but I'm a Prestige guy so I don't have it until later usually)

Perk 1 - Claymores (I pride myself on my Claymore ability)
Perk 2 - Stopping Power
Perk 3 - At the moment, it's Martyrdom, but only to get the challenges, I usually use Steady Aim

Loadout 2 - (Bloc, Pipeline, Countdown)

Gun - M4 with Red Dot, M16 with ACOG
Pistol - Same as above

Perk 1 - Claymores
Perk 2 - Stopping Power
Perk 3 - See above

Loadout 3 - (Downpour, Showdown, Wet Work)

Gun - MP5 or AK74 (both silenced)
Pistol - See above

Perk 1 - Special Grenades (Stun)
Perk 2 - UAV Jammer
Perk 3 - Dead Silence or Steady Aim

Loadout 4 - Vacant

Gun - RPD (Iron Sights)
Pistol - Ditto

Perk 1 - Claymores
Perk 2 - Stopping Power
Perk 3 - Steady Aim

This is my go-to setup:

AK-47u / Silencer
USP
Perk 1: Bandolier
Perk 2: UAV Jammer
Perk 3: Steady Aim or Deep Impact

Very much run-and-gun.  Though I'm coming to appreciate the G3 and taking more time for my shots.

Well, I understand Hark using bandolier as he likes to perch, but why you Kato? You run and gun and my assumption would be you die before you need the extra bullets.

I prefer the claymores because that allows me to set up in a spot and blast away...If I run out of bullets, I usually just displace and get another gun.

I'm just a lazy bastard, and I hate picking up weapons that are not mine.  (this is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine)

But you're right, I don't need it.  Gonna change it next time I log and maybe put on 3 flash or 3 frag.
