Shouldn't have to be mentioned but since I nubbed it up and did this myself, for those of you with surround sound set ups, make sure you change your audio settings manually.

Since getting my new 5.1 set up I've been playing MW2 more but something felt odd and not perfect. I was getting more kills and tracking people well but clearly not as well as a couple of clanmates did in the past. I had a hard time telling where sounds were coming from at like 75% certainty but it definitely felt improved over the simulated surround sound from my TV. Changing the receiver to Action Game settings helped it a bit more but it wasn't 100%.

Yesterday I decided to check my audio settings and found that the PS3 defaults to 2.1 audio output via HDMI. In addition to that it doesn't enable Dolby decoding by default. My receiver was upscaling the 2.1 into surround sound and it tricked me because it showed all 5.1 speakers used, which they were but they weren't getting fed their proper channels. In addition to all of that there are a ton of formats not enabled by default, so check your speaker and receiver specs/manuals and set it up properly.

Originally I was at -25db and it sounded decent with +50-70% more accuracy than simulated surround sound. As soon as I switched the audio output and enabled the proper format, I had to lower my receiver to -35ish db as the room was now shaking and it sounded like a war broke out. I was smoking people left and right, tracking their footsteps with deadly accuracy of like 85-95%. I never need to use a UAV because I can hear where the opposing team is firing from and just head in that direction.

Active listening is definitely an acquired skill but I've been doing that since my 6th Prestige or so, the only hard part is you have to actively recognize what those footsteps are on. Snow steps sound different from cement steps and metal steps, if you can figure out where those are spatially in relation to you, it's fucking beast mode. The real interesting part is when people are hunting you down because there's nothing more invigorating than taking out an entire enemy team flooding your position.

When the next MW2 patch rolls out, the only people left standing will be those with surround sound set ups, be it a headset or a 5.1/7.1 system. Aimbotters and radar hacks are going to pay dearly for their lack of skill.

Ran into a hacked lobby. I was actually fortunate enough to know of the hacker before it got started, somebody on the IW posted about julianportman doing his hacks and so I got it on camera. The video is processing right now but here's the link.

You can view the radar hack active in the radar screen and he randomized the spawns, took out the game timer and turned on respawns for Search and Destroy.



Edit: After checking my score, yeah, it screwed up my score and I've got a stupid amount of points. My kills remain the same though, thankfully they can't add or subtract. I jumped from a score of around 230k positioning I want to say to now in the top 90k. Scores can still be screwed with sadly.

I want to say I probably grinded pretty hardcore to reach 10th relatively quickly but the last two levels were quicker than the rest. I never really had an issue plowing through the Prestiges after my third Prestige though. My first two I was trying to be ultimate sniper and my last two I've been an AK whore. Once you start killing scores of people, the levels just roll on in, so I'd say just focus on getting killstreaks set up to give you tons of kills early on because that's where all your levels are going to be. An easy one to do would be 5/7/9 because all you'd have to do is purchase 7 and 9. I regularly go like 3-10 to 1 running 5/7/9. I get less kills on average going for a nuke more than anything else.

Until I get headphones, Im playing with no sound, so that could explain a bit of my low scores, and the 2 bar... lol. I am done trying to fix that connection, nothing I do helps. Probably have to get a different router first. Or plug the router after the switch.

Since I doubt I will ever play COD BO again, I just locked in my COD BO tradein at amazon for 32.25, putting that towards the Socom 4 Move/SS Bundle. Anyone know of a better trade value for it? I have til 30 Mar to mail it off, so I have time to hustle more money out of this game. I still need the damn zombies trophies, too frustrating.

Are any of you MW2 guys interested in Crysis 2 or I'm I the only one. I'm liking what I've played so far, I'm not to anal on FPS though, I've played and enjoyed most of them like WAW, BLOPS, MW2, BF:BC2, and even stuck with the not so great MOH (nokill's most hyped game of 2010). I think I'm going to stick with Crysis 2 until BF3 depending on how SOCOM is I still need to try the beta. I would recommend crysis, but I want to you to know what I've played and enjoyed.

As much as I really want to support IW right now, fourzerotwo just tweeted that they'll never turn off auto aim for MW2. Which means quickscopers will always have a home. I think it's a completely shitty choice for a game that has been out for so long now.

Don't forget that they need to patch this again to remove (hopefully) all of the hacks. I really wish I was recording last night so you could see the crazy death I suffered from the speed hack in Storm. Mind you I had cold-blooded, ninja, and silenced weapons. I was coming up the stairs to the area with the mannequins and the other person was coming in off the catwalk. Before I can raise my weapon to shoot he manages to switch weapons, cover the entire distance between us and knife me....all before I can get my weapon raised - and I saw him before he saw me because he was backing into the room.

It seems like the speed hack and the radar hack are the two prevalent ones remaining. I know Mad and I both suffered from the radar hack more than a couple of times last night, although I don't think either was present as much in S&D. I think I only witnessed one radar hack in S&D while we were playing Trailer Park Trash.

Mad - I can hear better directionally with the new headphones, but you could see how the delay was killing me - as evident in TP. It would have helped us if we had anyone else who knew the concepts of how to play last night. I have a great idea, the other team has 2 quick scopers and have called in Choppers and Harriers while none of you are cold-blooded....lets bunch up in front of the windows. My highlight of the night was the level 70, 10th prestige kids (hacks) who were still talking trash after going 0-12 in the two S&D games.

I'm probably in for Friday night....although I probably will not be around until 10ish CDT.

Yeah, it's back to pre-patch conditions. The exception is they can't derank or uprank you, other than that they have full access to the rest of their cheats. They can screw up your score but not unlock challenges, awaiting the next patch from IW. XBox 360 and PC are slated to receive the updated patch before PS3.

Haven't gotten a chance to play it, but I do know that the game was selling so poorly that THQ's stock dropped 10 points and the game had to be discounted a day after it came out.:-#

Really? I was playing MW2 last night and I didn't notice any "hacking" for a good 2+ hours. Before patch I'd see it all the time. Maybe the patch just deterred them. "Oh well, can't hack after this patch, might as well just play normally."

Also, my cousin (CoD: BO fan) said he liked the Homefront multiplayer more, whatever that's worth. He's a cool guy, but he only plays casually.

It's more fear that they're going to get banned if they do completely overt cheating. Now they just cheat for themselves and whomever they're partied with, so UAV/Radar hacks and the like are more common than what you're used to. I know more or less when I'm against a hacker and when it's just spawn camping because of the team I get stuck on.

S&D is more a test of reactionary skills but early early on Nubbles, myself and 3 others ran into one guy who used the radar hack to kill all of us as we were coming around corners. It's hard to beat planned cheatings with unprepared reactions but I found equpping Akimbo Rangers makes them choose an easier target.

Ninja Pro? I'm assuming you all use it, since you guys use Headsets you know the dangers of not having Ninja Pro on, so you're probably right about that guy. Though, it's probably way more prevalent[cheating] in other modes besides SnD.

I always thought of SnD as a combination of reaction and strategy. Like knowing what the other teams play like, which can be determined by mid-second round, and being able to adapt to it, and know when to move. Only thing that takes me awhile to get used to is rushers. I have a slower-then-most reaction time on knifing[firing I don't] so I usually lose out to that since I'm a slow mover. (Riot Shield or Sniping mostly)

Marathon-Lightweight-Ninja I find are harder to kill; MLC, not so much.
