Worst Things About Call of Duty

I do not hate COD. In fact it's a really good gaming franchise. I just noticed that many people hate COD and I want to know the main reason why they hate it. Don't forget to vote.

The Top Ten

1 It's the same game over and over again

Call of Duty is not the same as how it used to be four years ago when Black Ops 2 came out. Even though that game had a futuristic setting, it was still an amazing game. I just think that the whole future era of Call of Duty is too much now and it's getting old. More than half the kill-streaks that were in Black Ops 2 or games before that are not even present in the game anymore. Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3, and Infinite Warfare are all the same games. Same weapons, kill-streaks, and maps. Zombies is terrible now and it doesn't even make any sense. The one thing that I really didn't like was that they ruined the Black Ops series after Black Ops 3 came out. The story doesn't even tie into the last two Black Ops games. The first two however were great, 3 was that good. Where I thought that Black Ops 3 was Titanfall, Infinite Warfare looks like Star Wars. When I watched the trailer for Infinite Warfare, I just thought it looked like Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 together, but when ...more

Too boring, graphics are dull and so 2007 (they still haven't reach first Crysis' level until now), gameplay is too futuristic. I don't know what duty they are referring to but the plot is not realistic at all and resembles some sort of Steven Seagal boring action movie. The system requirements are also pissing me off, although I meet them without any issues. But the simple fact that the latest games require i3 or i5 as minimum requirements, regards the crappy graphics, that is simply annoying. I wish they would use a plot similar to the first Call of Duty games but with today's setting. But that's just my wish and Activision does not care. He cares just for the money from these Star Wars DLC's he calls new Call of Duty games.

It's disgusting that Activision are milking the franchise like this by having Infinity Ward and Treyarch release the same, re-skinned game every year. I stopped buying the games after Black Ops and I will never again so much as turn my head at the newest Call of Duty game in my local game shop. Activision are setting a large example of how NOT to make people like you. They deserve to be shot for completely RUINING the gaming industry with this series.

I Think Call of Duty is over played and Overwatch is 10 times better.

2 Annoying little brats

I hate these people so much. They act like there grown ups and speak rude languages. They need to get a life and stop screaming whenever they die when I play multiplayer.

I have this problem with whining 5 year olds who stalk me around the map just to pull a knife and talk about how they're better than everyone else because they "are sneaker than everyone else". In reality, they are probably the most cowardly Call of Duty gamers in multiplayer if they have to stalk everyone. This also applies to campers, though not the ones who only do it once before going back to being Rambo.

They keep raging when they just die and think it's all over, they need a life.

5 year olds should be playing games like Pokemon, but NO, their friends all have Call of Duty, so they HAVE to have call of duty.

3 Campers

The campers just expose the same corner over and over again. sure, they do move around, but they stay in the same general area THE WHOLE TIME.

Campers is a bunch of pussies (except snipers)

Who hasn't had to deal with campers in any first person shooter

Their are always going to be campers, just shut up and deal with it!
This is not what makes Call of Duty bad because mostly every game has "campers".

4 Hackers

Remember the legendary Call of Duty 4? Remember World at War? Remember Modern Warfare 2? Good games, right? Not anymore.

There is nothing worse than having a fun game, and then have a hacker ruin it

Every single multiplayer match has at least one if not several hackers running aimbot at a minimum. I've got tons of them on video as proof including screenshots of the Elegance program they are running. The only way to even play the multiplayer Black Ops 2 game as a legitimate gamer anymore is to get on the team of someone that is hacking and hope his software hacks are better than the opposite teams software hacks. 74 kills and 3 deaths in Hardcore is not a good player it is a hacker period.

I think hacking in a custom match with friends for fun is OK. But if your so bad at a game that you need to cheat, you need a new past time.

5 It's overrated

The reason why it's overrated is that a swarm of 12-year olds pounded are security systems that are supposed to protect the Ball Of Call of Duty that is used to not ruin Call of Duty.

I really hate how much people like this game, and yet they constantly rage at basically everyone else who's playing. Just play a different game! Scratch that, a better game!

It is so overrated that it towers over all the actually good games like journey or portal 2

If you type the word call on a search engine, it will suggest Call Of Duty. That's how popular the franchise is. - madoog

6 Lag and glitches

The lag in this game makes an otherwise bad game as most people say to just downright unplayable at times

Most of my Call of Duty games don't have much lag... then there is Call of Duty Block Ops 2. Demonstration time: three minutes of play time= five twenty-five minutes of migrating host time.

As rare as this is, I don't find fun either.

Every time I play TDM on Black ops 3 there's always someone with a lag switch or too many players online, mostly hackers or trollers!

7 It gets boring

It can get repetitive. You have to be in the mood or want to do something like set a goal for you to play for hours. It's still fun for me

I can only play like 3 matches before I get bored

The only non-boring game in the series is Call of Duty 4...

8 Horrible spawn system

Spawn-campers and instant death galore!

Time after time it's just spawn...then dead after 2 seconds in game because someone spawns behind me

No you don't always go all the way back

That sounds horrible

9 Little kids play it

Meanwhile the oldest Call of Duty player turns 15...

That's just bad parenting

Only so they can be cool that's what they do - VideoGamefan5

I thing they could because it's fun

10 It's unrealistic

Somebody can magically stab you from 15 feet away and instantly kill you, but a grenade or rocket going off 5 feet away from someone doesn't kill them? What? And also the game would be 1000x better if they could get at least a few of the guns right. It seems like they just pick a random gun, change everything about it, rename it, and throw it in the game.

Everyone is trying to be their own Rambo!

People who put this on this list was actually never play WaW, and MW series

It does not matter if the game is realistic, it matters if it is fun.
Go play paint ball if you want "realism"

12 It's getting futuristic

Advanced warfare at least used prototype technology. Blacks Ops 3 creators just ate shrooms.

I like futuristic games but I don't buy Call of Duty for futuristic I buy it because it is supposed to be realistic

Honestly, I like how Call of Duty is being futuristic because it goes above and beyond their capabilities, showing their limit break. Also, I like sci-fi, so the futuristic Call of Duty games will make Call of Duty better for me. - SelfDestruct

The futuristic sucks go back to the good old days with mw2, mw3 world at war and black ops 1 something

Two shots in ghosts from an assault rifle kills you. what - cdxtreme

14 Racist people

It's just a bunch of kids who get angry they have to yell a bunch of racist stuff

15 Quickscopers

The game at this point you can't have fun with it because you get killed at an odd angle your wondering what just happened and the kill cam shows you 360 noscoped by some try hard optic clan member ad its infuriating every time I feel like the snipers in the game people say it should be like battlefield but even there the snipers get to their scopes a little to quick the snipers should be like medal of honour warfighter

They suck. It is so frustrating when you are using an SMG and you are playing to the strengths of YOUR weapon only to die once you put like 2 shots in them.

How do you defend against a glitch in the game that gets you a one shot kill.

Annoying and stupid, after they show-off the game

16 Christmas noobs

Mann they need to chill! All these little kids getting Call of Duty for Christmas lmao

17 Boost Jumps

Its WAY too stupid. Its not Even fun anymore. Its annyoing, cowardly and gamebreaking. People can just jump and shoot you. They can Get to camping spots and glitches with this stupid feature

18 Activision is reusing the same game engine

I get they are getting a new one for ghosts, but come on. You should use the same engine for 1, 2 titles max, not for SIX YEARS. Anyway, I really do like the franchise, but this is annoying considering how much they get from the series.

This applies between MW2 and MW3 as no improvement of graphics between bothof them

19 Soap dies

Okay look, Soap was a great character and all and we loved him, but I think the death was fine. We saw a character that supposedly could not die, die right in front of us. It wasn't like it was sudden either. It gave us a reason to push forward and that's why it was so good. BLACK OPS DID THE SAME DAMN THING WITH DIMITRI, YOU ALL LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Probably I will been die for say this, but the game turns better if price will death, I don't know, I only think that is better kill other character than the protagonist of the main saga

That was so dramatic! The MW3 needed to make a huge bang at the and Soap's death, but it was very sad and I can cry all over again if I see his death again. If there could be anyway, to revive him...
R.I.P. cpt. Soap macTavish, my favourite character FOREVER!

Activision killed a good characters, also kill a good villains

20 Anti Campers

Real snipers sit in the same spot for hours waiting for their target to come, but when I try doing this in Call of Duty I get call a noob and some cheap camper well deal with it quick scoping is for rambo not "realistic" based games!

Sniping takes skill, quick scoping does not.
