I can confirm that this patch is available on xbox live. I only had time to play 1 round and let me say the new ACOG scope is way better and the kill cams on everything is a godsend. Maybe someone will write up a story on this today? I would but I have school right now

Yeah great fix the 50.cal sniper rifle and mess everything else up! I kept on telling people stop whining sure it has a couple flaws but cod4 multiplayer is almost perfection. Nope people got a keep on sniveling and whining that there 50.cal sniper gun has some kick on it. Its a 50.cal sniper rifle idiots!!!! So now multiple people are having problems keeping connected to a game and the on screen action is slow and laggy. Also you can throw a grenade and it will kill someone that is 40 feet away from it. And the original were going to fix it to where if the host leaves the game doesnt end is actually worse then it was before. I kept on telling people that if it aint broke dont try to fix perfection. But no they had to try and the multiplayer team deathmatch experience is now officially screwed. But hey the 50 cal sniper rifle works better right??? Mad

LMFAO yeah I still play the hell out of it. Twisted Evil I take my mad out on anyone that is on the other team!!!! Lag was pretty bad but it was amusingly bad. I would run around the corner and the other team would be frozen like they were running in jello!!!! I was just going around knifing all the other team that were frozen.They were pissed! LMFAO! Laughing I just can't wait until you can play some cod4 with us Wes! We usually laugh so hard during the matches because of the crazy stuff we try. Like running around with a shotgun the whole entire game! The funny of it is that you usually end up getting the most kills with the damn thing! And the thing is brutally loud! You can hear it all the way across the map! Its hilarious! Laughing

I palyed last night, not playing serious just screwing arround using the RPG to try and give some people some cool kill cams. Thats why I was getting like 6 kills and 12 deaths.

Anyway. About the update...

The grenade and RPG kill cams are cool but I rarly play on regular deathmatch, I prefer hardcore so the new kill cams dont realy mean anything to me.

The host migration is not what I expected and hoped for, I thought if the host leaves the map rotation would continue on its set order uninterupted but it is just like before only keeps same people together. If you are in a party you stay together anyway. As for people I just meet up with in a game, i dont tend to get too emotionaly attached to anyone anyway.

Now the fix they said they were fixing on the snipers was the one where the bullets dont register.
I was playing a bit today and that was happening alot. I get a bead dead center of a guys face that is just crouched in a corner, perfect slug to the nose shot with breath hold on and steady as a stone. I fire the shot and nothing! 2 more shots....Nothing, no registration of a hit. a fourth shot and ding, head shot. I notice this quite a bit today and in different rooms. I didnt even realy notice it before the update much.
So rather than being fixed it seems worse to me. as for the 50 cal. I have not tried that since the update.
What exactly is suposed to be better about it? is it less recoil or less breath movement? Right now I am working on my M21 and Dragonov, and often feel like I am shooting blanks. And yes I too have noticed more laggy games than previously.

The only thing I realy liked was when i played some regular deathmatch last night and killed a guy that had mayrterdom, and I got killed, my kill cam actualy shows me killing the guy before I die.
