Worst Things About Call of Duty

PS3gamer12
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 really upsetting that they keep making every new Call of Duty game set in the future, what's also bull is that you have to buy Infinite Warfare just get Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered Edition. Seriously, A lot of people pre-ordering Infinite Warfare is just so that they can get Call of Duty 4 remastered. And it's going to make treyarch and Activision think that this Game is "successful" so it's going to make them create another Call of Duty.

Trying to imagine world without video games, we still had computers but Call of Duty was just a board game HA!

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.

I agree so much, I HATE annoying people in every way. However, that is not the GAME itself, that is the COMMUNITY playing the GAME.

3 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!

4 Hackers

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

How is this not higher? It is not cool at all to force your idea of fun onto everybody like that. Worst of all, most of the time, it's just some little kid that thinks they're some video game god because of their hacks

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

They ruin the game.

5 Little kids play it

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

That's just bad parenting

Here is my opinion little kids are always going to get there hands on games like these. I've met a 9 year old on Grand Theft Auto V so I mean you can't really fix this but parents should be more careful.

Hell yes I agree

6 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)

My biggest pet peeve. I hate these more than campers. It's a cowardly move in my opinion. It may work in real life but it a weak move in video gaming.

They just sit there and do nothing

7 Tryhards that don't play objectives everywhere

Call of Duty = kill everyone and get a good k/dr.

8 The awful memes

Memes are bad

9 Overpowered guns

More like 1 bullet from an smg kills you

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

It adds realism

I love overpowered weapons when I use them... but when someone else uses them? "DIE DIE DIE ALREADY! "

10 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.

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

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!

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

The Contenders

11 Trolls

Well how about you just stop feeding the troll and mute them you idiots!

Trolls are they worse especially when they record you - kosdff

There's always going to be trolls.

12 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...

13 Horrible spawn system

Gets worse every Call of Duty

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

I hate it when I spawn and then I die straight away. YOUNOOB

14 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!

Why don't you play ARMA then?

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

15 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

16 Fake FaZe fanboys

Faze is just too much drama and overrated.

17 Call of Duty Fanboys

It's completely unfair that most people wish the Call of Duty community alive and defend them for disrespecting opinions and trying too hard to be edgy and cool. Call of Duty haters are way better than Call of Duty fans. Studio Ghibli is so underappreciated in comparison and in general.

This is what really destroys the redeeming aspects of the games! Especially in Black ops 2!

The Call of Duty fandom is so toxic!

Yep they suck nobody likes Call of Duty - kosdff

18 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.

genius

20 Racist people

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

21 Friendly fire will not be tolerated

If there is a character that I really hate in the campain and I just wanna kill. I shoot them and then it just says that message and I die. I know it's related to the plot but it should be gone in ghosts. Instead just make them tell you to stop because it is so annoying.

This is really good when you like to troll people - kosdff

22 Christmas noobs

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

23 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

24 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

25 It's a cash grab
26 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

27 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.

28 It's gross

It is.

29 Killstreaks are annoying

Streaks are what make the game unike.

30 Probation

Why do I have to finish every game I play so I don't go on "probation"? What if I have to dump?

31 One hit knife kills

You get 5 rounds to the body and you alright, BUT a knife to the leg is an INSTANCE KILL!

Knife deals more damage because you stab enemy with your strength

32 Unfair Matchmaking

Have you ever started a game with your mates? You've all just bought the game on the day it came out and all level ones, you start playing matchmaking, and you are placed in a game with PRESTIGED LEVEL 50s! I mean come on, why Activision? What happened? Why must you force us to compete with people who have high powered sniper rifles? This happened to me and my mates, and, seriously, why are there prestiged people already? Have they seriously got nothing better to do? I play for like six hours a week, they play for 6 weeks straight! Why isn't there a thing which places level ones with level ones? Why?

33 There is no skill needed

If it was "Realistic" as it looks, 70% of players would become noob-level

Where is the bullet drop? Destructive cover? Ability to lean? Call of Duty developers need to team up with boyfriend/MoH developers and learn what it takes to make a realistic, skillful FPS game... I've noticed Call of Duty bears a lack of team work involved, also. They need a Squad or Buddy system.

Call of Duty makes people believe that they are really good at fps but suddenly when they find a game that needs skills like recoil compensation ammo consumption management (like in csgo) they suck and blame it on the game

34 It make kids violent

The kids learn swears from the frequent 12 year olds who seem to have a relationship with my mother.

35 Maps are horrible

People who puts this on this list was actually never play BO, MW, and WaW

The maps are so stupid why can't there be a map from campain

36 Last Stand
37 Noobs hiding in buildings

All they do is camp with a shotgun and a riot shield, its annoying

38 Your parents won't get you the game

This is right

39 Broken hitmarks
40 K-9

When your on a 10 killstreak and get killed by dogs

41 Clans

You also get annoying players who think they are in FaZe clan by having FaZe as their clan tag name - BlazinWraith

This is why I hate FaZe and OpTic. FaZe Temperr, Faze Rain, and FaZe Apex are all white fat nerds with no life/job.

So is FAZE Adapt

42 It's a rip-off of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake

I. Have that game no more it is not good

43 Forgettable music
44 It makes kids think the military will be fun
45 It's a waste of time and money
46 Campaign gets worse in each game

Well it turns out advanced warfare had finally have a good campaign

People who puts this on this list was actually never played AW, and BO

47 Broken knives

Black Ops 2, knives are so broken I can't kill someone 5 millimeters away! One time, I tried to stab an enemy when I was literally right behind him, nothing happened! No hit marker, nothing! Treyarch needs to learn to actually fix their games before they publish them. Campaign was okay, though.

48 Recycled scenes from past Call of Duty games
49 Wall glitches

Why, in a game supposed to be perfect, are there wall glitches? In AW, there's a map, where people can go through walls and into inaccessible rooms. They can shoot back out, but we can't shoot in! If this happens in infection mode, no chance of winning!

50 Lousy melee mechanics

I mean seriously, I'm right behind this guy, melee him, he moves an inch to the right, I miss, he steps back and melees me, and he's like 1 foot away and I die! In other Call of Duty games, the melee mechanic was automatic, you'd move forward or auto aim them, successful melee kill achieved, no this doesn't exist, no wonder why I like the halo series better.
