One thing that I sort of didn't like with these so called new hell hounds variant that you like to call it which doesn't bother me at all though was the fact that they remove that Beauty of Annihilation guitar solo bit that plays after clearing out all the hell hounds. Cmon I actually liked it, plus Beauty of Annihilation is a really good Easter egg song. The remix on the Giant was alright but the original is better.So are you saying they become weaker when they start running? (I am not sure I understand) I know on Der Riese in Black Ops they don't die as easily because I was struggling to kill them just recently due to how fast they move and they didn't go down easy after several hits. The Giant however, it seems like only one bullet or two from the Kuda kills them instantly.
Yea I think they are slightly different variants of the hounds because they do that, they move faster than normal hounds and they appear to be skinnier as well. (Which probably explains why they move a lot faster) I need to go into Theater Mode and look at them more closely.
Right now I've been mostly playing multiplayer as I'm trying to finish the dark matter challenge. Only have 4 weapon classes to get diamond for. Right now on my last sniper for the sniper class *on the SVG 100 right now* and getting gold on these guns are dreadful. Heck even some of the pros at CoD that has good K/Ds even admits it's a hellish process. The P06 wasn't as bad as everyone thinks it is. Even though it needs to charge before firing the bullets, the gun already does massive damage to begin with, plus 3 round bursts that's something you can't go wrong with.
For people who are having a struggle with getting blood thirsties for the snipers because their aiming is bad, I'd recommend camp near a window or whatever spot you can find that may help and lower the horizontal aiming sensitivity to 3 and pray that you can get 5 kills in a row without being flanked from behind. It would be a good idea to use sixth sense but the fact that your aiming sensitivity is going to be really low, you might not be able to react fast enough if the enemy is coming from behind. Also don't forget about the silencers.
Fringe and Infection are great examples for sniping but I prefer infection more because I seem to have some bad luck with getting flanked on fringe especially when camping inside the barns and inside the white house as well, no pun intended. Plus I really like Infection's map design so yeah.
Many people would recommend to use shock charges and rejack *yes apparently rejack still counts towards challenge progression* etc. However I failed to acquire all of these after hitting prestige 2 and also for the rejack since it's usually the worst specialist ability yet up until hearing that it still works toward challenge progression but I think I can handle this without all of them.
I'm probably going to play secure and hold with the combat knife inside the houses on nuketown as its probably easier that way if you don't have 2 of the worst specialist abilities aka Rejack and camo although I think overdrive might help a bit too because of the speed boost. Enough said.
