Just got the xbox with Kinects set up. Gamer tag ....wait for it.......prattpak, with clan tag of [lds*]. I know I know, its original.
Lovin MW3. The SCAR-L possibly the best gun with the right set up.
If you are having trouble with getting killed all the time as you are going through the maps here is a hint....when you "PIE" a corner and you think there may be someone there.....go around the corner shooting!! 9-10 times there IS SOMEONE THERE! I cant tell you how many times this has worked for me. The other tip, follow someone! If you see them taking on fire then geuss what,,,now you know where the enemy is! Biggest word of advice, DONT BE A CAMPER! If you camp out in a corner or in a room you are not getting the XP you need to unlock things and you are more likely to get a frag in your lap by some punk @$$ teenager!

I just Prestiged for the second time. I used a Prestige Token to carry over the MP7. I love that gun. I was playing last night as a low-level (because when you prestige, you go back to level 1) using my MP7 and people were complaining over the chat, "Hey! How did you get that gun unlocked?!" Too funny.

I am happy to have finally gotten my K:D ratio above 1.0.

I heard Skyrim is really good, but I just don't have time to play something that big and involved. Heck, I take enough flak from DW staying up late to get a few hours of MW3 in.
It is big and very involved. But it is AMAZING. Once you level up a little. It is kind of boring and time consuming until you get to level 4 or 5 then you start the battles. Amazing graphics and a fun game to play.

Surely out of almost 700 Dads there has to be more gamers than just us.

I am one as well, but only have a Wii

Santa did not think I was good enough for a 360 with a Kinect. Maybe in a few months

Good way to go unnoticed. At earlier levels, Perk 1 has Blind Eye Pro that will at least avoid AUV and sentries. But I always try to carry a launcher as a second weapon to take out UAV for my team, even if I have Assassin as one of my perks.

Yes, the Striker is a shotgun - but it doesn't become unlocked (to earn weapons XP) until a pretty high level. But there is a plain (un-upgraded) Striker as one of the early classes available.

SOme of the maps I use the Striker: Dome, Arkaden, Carbon, Underground (if you hang out in the central 'hub'), and Mission (if you hang out between the buildings.)

Here are a few ways I like to set up my perks:
Silenced Ninja-like - Sleight of Hand Pro, Assassin Pro, Stalker Pro. This is my silenced SCAR-L loadout.
Don't Care if Seen on Radar - Sleight of Hand Pro, Quickdraw Pro, Steady Aim Pro. I am trying this with ACR.
Bad Boy CQB - Sleight of Hand Pro, Overkill Pro, Steady Aim Pro. Striker setup with second primary Assault Rifle class.


Do you play on Xbox? If so, we should 'party up' and play some time.
A day or two after you posted this, I got assassin pro and that made a huge difference. No more 3/15 k/d games. I usually run around with Scavenger, Assassin, Stalker and a SMG with silencer and rapid fire.
Yes I play on Xbox. gamertag is WrigleyRyno.

I normally don't camp but I'll admit to playing much more conservatively when I get close to a good killstreak. Or if I'm defending on Domination. But mostly I'm running around. I know what you mean about shoot first ask questions later. I've regretted not throwing a flashbang in to a room many times. Also a good tip- always throw your bouncing betty or claymore out there. Especially on Ground War. It doesn't take very long for someone to trip it. I really like how they made capturing flags and taking down choppers count towards your killstreak. It makes people actually play domination the right way instead of acting like it's team deathmath.

Will do. Although I don't get online much and the time differences will be a challenge...

There are a total of 10 Prestige Levels.

In the shop, you can spend your tokens on the following rewards:

Extra Custom Class
Double XP (two hours in-game time)
Double Weapon XP (two hours in-game time)
Regular Package (Callsign Title and Emblem)
Unlock Gear (Choose one item that's unlocked permanently)
Hardened Package
Veteran Package
Reset All Stats (resets everything, including your Prestige Level)


If you've Prestiged in any of the previous Call of Duty games (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 only), you will automatically receive one bonus token for each CoD game you've Prestiged in. You can only receive a maximum of one token per game, regardless of the Prestige Level in that game.
