Riot Shield Bad?

Post by Shifty on Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:45 am

Okay guys, I joined this site a while ago but this is my first post.

I wanted a opinion from you guys and a answer.

My friend lacks faith in COD MW 2, he says that the riot shield will ruin it becaue it is unbreakable. I did not know if it was unbreakable or not. So is it unbreakable? And if it is is there something that evens it out so there not god-like? And also if it is unbreakable do you think this will be like the new martydom? As in a very noobish perk.

Thanks!

Shifty.

I believe it IS unbreakable, however, it has weaknesses which make it a welcome addition. First off, you have to crouch to have the shield block your entire front. Second, when you are holding it up front, you are completely vulnerable and defenseless from behind. Third, the more shot up the shield gets, the less you can see out of it, up to the point where it is totally opaque.

And stunning/flashing people with shields will make them lower it, presenting an ample opportunity to get a headshot.

Well if you throw a flash or stun gernade it blinds them and expose themselves. And its a primary weapon not a perk. and the shield protects your back when your not using it.

you could run up behind them and knife....the CTF multiplayer video showed someone try to do that but other teammate killed him before he got to knife

the riot shield should not be a problem at all to counter, even though it is unbreakable, it makes it very hard to maneuver for the person using it, if you the maps well, you will know ways to get above or behind them, making them easily destroyable, all in all, they shouldnt be anything to be worried about

the riot shield definitely seems balanced. You can expose the person with a special grenade, they cant shoot you, it takes up a primary weapon spot, it covers your back when wielding secondary weapon, it takes two shield bashes to get a kill, you move slower etc. it seems fair to me. i personally prefer a primary weapon but thats just my style. It should be interesting to see how many people actually use the riot shield

Thanks for all the feed back guys! My faith is restored!

So when you want to shoot you have to put the riot shield on your back?

it all depends

Post by SergeantHatredx on Mon Dec 14, 2009 10:55 am

It depends on the user of the riot shield, its all how you use it. charging people isn't the only use of the shield. when there's a turret in a narrow hallway, you crouch with the shield and walk towards it(deflecting all the bullets) then melee it to destroy the turret. also you can distract your enemy with the shield, meaning they'll be trying to kill you(shooting your shield repetitively) while your teammate sneak up and kill them, or let them shoot your shield till they need to reload then switch to your secondary and shoot them.
----------------------------------------
that's what I do with the shield, again it all depends. and even adding a throwing knife can help the shield wielding class.
-------------------------------------
OH and as everyone else said yes it is unbreakable, but they missed a weakness.
1)the arm that hold the shield
2)whenever using a throwing knife they expose themselves
--------------------------------------------------------
a great advantage over shields is this class type:
*MP5N w/ silencer(or any other sub-machine gun, don't matter)
*USP w/ tactical knife(or any pistol with a tactical knife)
*Semtex
*stun x2
*marathon pro
*lightweight pro
*commando pro -or- ninja pro
(reason for class: you can easily run behind and knife them before they can melee let alone turn around)(second reason: the sub-machine is the lightest primary weapon so you run faster with than any other primary, and the tactical knife has a 3x faster stabbing rate than a normal knife, and a faster weapon recovery to shoot)

I saw the shield put to good use yesterday in a Domination game on Skidrow.

Anyone who knows that map will know there's a narrow concrete staircase inside the building leading from the ground floor up to point 'B' on the first floor.

One guy with a shield sat himself on the staircase and it took three of us to shift him in the end, but that was only after a while as the capture points continued to rack up for his team. Brilliant defending.

Teams that have one or two guys with shields who know what they're doing can be real tough to beat!
