Hate Final Stand in Modern Warfare 3? Infinity Ward sympathises with you.

Call of Duty gamers have developed a love-hate relationship with 'Last Stand', a perk that allows you to pull out a pistol moments before death. Someone despise it, while others use its frustrating ability to give a victim the upper hand in a one-on-one shootout.

Infinity Ward got rid of the perk in Modern Warfare 3, replacing it with 'Final Stand' as a Deathstreak. And yet the hate remains.

Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, has had plenty to say about the controversial addition.

“I wouldn’t say no one," said Bowling in response to calls for it to be removed. "Deathstreaks are popular among the lesser skilled players. The game has features for all skill sets.”

He also empathised with gamers that loath it.

“Last Stand was removed because it was super annoying as a perk (used every death), kept Final Stand as compromise (every 4). I understand for guys like you & I who find it annoying no matter how often it is, this still sucks, but it is what it is.

”Deathstreaks are the thing that’s always going to piss off good players and always make bad players happy. But there are a lot of people who play call of duty and no one likes to constantly get owned.

“You know, when you still see it, it’s frustrating as hell – if you hate that concept to begin with, which I do and other people do. But then there are other people who disagree with us. And so it’s that balance – it’s the compromise of game development.”

You can listen to more of Bowling's thoughts here.

Do you think Final Stand should be removed all together?

Remove all the perks like the gud ol dayz of CoD.

Who cares about Final Stand? Dead Man's Hand is far worse.

What does that involve?

Isn't there any option in the game for everyone to play without any perks?
dead mans hand , its like final stand but u get c4 and blow up u and everyone else close to u. keep away ;)
I like it, its a 'realism' feature, as long as its not a perk 100% of time for each and every kill.

True, Last Stand in MW2 wasn't realistic. It was like kill someone and they revive straight away. That wouldn't happen in war.
Like that perk they used to have that when you died you dropped a grenade. Whoever came up with that genius idea should be kicked in the nuts.
CoD4 perks are da bst
As if you guys want the old cod back. :S The entire multiplayer of the old CoDs is put into one gamemode in the newer ones. The same people that complain about CoD being the same every year actually want them to devolve?
