Looks like another issue is going around people can't even log into the game. Just sits at fetching profile screen.

Nice, wasn't going to buy this, but this move made me buy it.
FWIW we have a decent sized office in Melbourne these days. Based on Slack convos they all seem out of the way of harm but it's something we're always thinking about.

When I was working out of Treyarch I remember driving north on the 2 one night to my place in Montrose, and a line of flame all along the Verdugo Hills to the west. Pretty powerful visual that's stayed with me.

Hope everyone stays safe wherever they are.

Did the gamma change in this game over night? There was an update today on my Xbox One X and now the game is washed out on my HDR TV. Looks totally different from where it was yesterday.

So, once you reach level 155 there really is nothing to do is there? What I'm I supposed to do. Play the game for fun or something?

If you haven’t finished your battle pass and related operator missions then finish those up but I would totally stop playing if I was 155 already. Save your missions, other grinding and related exp for next season.

Missions would be the only thing you'd lose out on by not waiting and frankly they don't offer shit for XP.

Like even the really big ones offer less than a match worth of XP.

I guess sure, if you are really that into how fat you can get to 155, but the difference would be negligible.

Dunno if you folks were watching Drift0r's Mixer stream, but he hopped into a match of shipment and was spawn killed nearly a dozen times in a row. The rant that followed was pretty amazing, and his tweets capture a mere microcosm of the anger he was displaying.

Frankly, I totally understand. It's hands-down one of, if not the worst Call of Duty maps in the franchise history, in a game with several contenders for series' worst (Picadilly and Rammaza being my personal most-hated aside from Shipment 2019).

I am with that Drift0r dude when it comes to shipment. I am all for chaotic maps and stupid fun but as I said before, shipment comes close to the one custom Doom (or was it Half Life) map I remember which was just a big square where 10+ people would spawn in with rocket launchers.

Also: When you play against people on console and you see in the kill feed how insane the snap to target aim assist is... wow.

Man holy shit. If you keep using the Holger-26 till you can turn it into an AR... It can actually be incredible.

Hmmm I've played nothing but shipment for a week. I've really enjoyed the chaos, and racking up bunches of kills and xp.

I'm probably not the "norm" though.

I know that this is what gaming has become these days but when I buy the battle pass with real money, it should stay for me to unlock forever. 100 levels is bad enough but when I spend the 10 bucks I should be able to work on it indefinitely. And if I buy the next one I should be able to work on both. You already have my money... what the hell. In the end I don't spend anything at all because of that stupid mechanic. It should be illegal for them to remove it after I bought it imho. It is consumer unfriendly as it gets.

Tried the coop missions for the first time yesterday and they're petty fun if a little bit absurd. One of them is a bank heist type thing and at one point you literally get a never ending stream of suicide bombers until you find something in the vault. It felt like I was playing Left 4 Dead lol.

I unlocked a couple of cool operators and calling cards.

Same.

It's just stupid fun and helps extremely to max out the battle pass and the officer ranks. Thanks to Shipment and 2XP I did 10 battle pass tiers since friday. More to come today...

Getting mad at being spawn killed in Shipment is like getting mad someone bumps into you in a packed club.

Don't be dumb, Shipment isn't a real map.

Oh, it’s real alright. Real bad.

I enjoy smaller maps sometimes, and Shoot House is a example of a great smaller map. Shipment is not that. It’s a tiny map that should never be used for anything beyond 2 vs 2 matches. 6 v 6 on that map is just a cluster fuck and I’m shocked Infinity Ward ever thought it should be used for 6 v 6.

All of it goes to relief efforts.
Sure, and that’s great. The price for most of these cosmetic packs is insane though. 1/3 the price of the entire game for some skins and trinkets? No thanks.

You know what I like picadilly. It's big enough to run around without being killed in 5 seconds and makes alot of the overhead killstreaks easier to deal with since there is cover. It's the opposite of the maps from BLOPS4 which is great because that game was fucking garbage

Piccadilly is actually one of the best maps in the game for S&D. I can't say I enjoy it on any other modes though.

Do the blueprints give you some gameplay benefit other than just unlocking attachments early? I hate stuff like "do X times Y" and would rather ignore that stuff completely.

Oh it’s real bad alright. Real bad you don’t like it.

That map is perfect for what it is. It’s a crazy, joke of a map. And I mean that in a positive way.
I’m usually laughing my arse off at how crazy it gets, either spawn trapping the opposite team, or getting absolutely reamed because of the dodgy spawn points. It’s a map you can just say “fuck it” and see what happens.
I’m usually the guy who will only play the objective on whatever mode I’m currently playing on, but that map? No way. Kill, kill, kill or die, die, die. Either way, it’s an absolute blast.

Oh Shipment. Pulled this gem of a clip yesterday.


I don't know, every once in awhile it's fun to just give yourself over to the mayhem.

You just proved my point. Shipment isn't a real map lol.

It's a mindless shit fest and if you go into it thinking you can use strategy and skill to get a positive outcome every time you are fooling yourself. You can't control shit in Shipment.'

It's for mindless fun, if you want to play CoD go play real maps.

Just starting this game. Would love any tips and advice :)
  • Good starting weapons are the M4, PKM, and MP5
  • If you're not running Overkill, equip a launcher to shoot down UAVs, always
  • You can complete a very simple mission (located under "Barracks" in the main menu) to unlock an MP7 variant that lets you use it from the get-go (though it won't be customizable until level 54, you'll be able to unlock attachments that'll be ready for it when you unlock the gun proper)
  • Most of the maps in the game are bad, but Shipment in particular is one of the worst in the Call of Duty franchise; avoid it
  • Stuns are really strong against PC players in particular, due to how they aim with a mouse, but in terms of tacticals your best bets are the stuns, smokes, and stim (if you like to rush)

M4A1 is best assault rifle.
MP5 is the best SMG.

You can edit your load out when you respawn in game so if something like a VTOL is up, feel free to put on cold-blooded for that life and remove it when the killstreak is gone.

LMGs are just as good, sometimes better than launchers at taking out air support.

Shipment is a huge mess but it is amazing for completing missions, unlocking camos, or just leveling up anything fast in general.

Other maps in this game are slower paced and encourage camping, especially in Team Deathmatch. Stick to objective modes if you’re not into that.
