How I properly use Overkill: I leave it sitting there lonely and unselected in slot 2, then pick up one of the 40 ACR's and MP7's laying in piles all over the map, or I use my MP9 secondary which is worthy of being a primary in this game, allowing me to use Quickdraw, or Assassin.
Seriously though, the only good use for Overkill to me and when I've even considered using it is with Specialist, because it's the only perk you don't get with Specialist Bonus. But even then, there are just so many weapons lying around, and strong or OP secondaries like MP9 or Akimbo FMG's, I rarely see occasion to use it.
My only non-pro perk.
Add: I really like your opening thumbnail, very nice, I have no clue how to make those do you know of any tutorials or anywhere I could learn? I can't watch the vid now bc I'm at work, but will watch it later, and let you know what I think. If I like your vids, I'll sub

K I watched. Some Feedback:
I like your commentary, you have a good voice (I do comms but don't like my voice, not deep enough), and you sound natural not like your reading off something, and not monotonous and boring which is good. Not SUPER excitable/humorous/personable, but usually tip comms aren't supposed to be so good job there. I myself struggle with comms, but I am almost always doing more than 1 take. I noticed you had a couple of very small awkward moments where you were searching for the right words...do multiple takes till those are minimized...doesn't have to be perfect though.
You have really nice graphics. Your opening thumbnail and the graphic where you explained Overkill were really well done. I'd love to have that skill, all the big tip guys like TMartn usually use nice graphics, I myself really want to learn that. However, at 1:04 you mispelled Attachment as Attatchment. Use spellcheck, misspelling takes away from the graphic.
Your video was a good length, people have short attention spans these days. Good job speeding up the parts that didn't contribute to the point you were making , like when you sped up your Reaper which of course has nothing to do with Overkill.
Also, good job explaining Overkill and nice touch adding in how to get the pro perk, the game doesn't clearly spell that out. The only criticism I'd give is that it's a little late in the MW3 game for Perk Tips, everyone has been playing for over 9 months and there's very little new players joining at this point. Plus Overkill is simple and has been around for many CODs.
Start this same series early on in BLOPS 2, and do the new perks first before you do ones that have been in past CODs. Anticipating that you will, I will be subscribing. Nice vid.
