The 10 Most Annoying Call of Duty Players

We've all been stuck in a lobby with one of these unlikable goons. Read on to make sure you're not on the list.

With large and diverse following, the Call of Duty series has more than its fair share of insufferable gamers who pollute the online multiplayer experience. We've all come across unsavory sorts while firing our way through Modern Warfare, World At War, and Black Ops, but which are the most loathsome? Check out our list below.

10. The Dead Weight
These players come in all shapes and sizes. Some gamers can't help their poor skills; they simply aren't blessed with twitch reflexes or haven't familiarized themselves with the maps yet. Some slowly drink themselves into a stupor over the course of the night. Others are hopeless parents investigating what this whole video game fad is all about. Whatever the circumstances, no one likes seeing a teammate rack up 2 kills alongside 20 deaths in a team deathmatch round. With dead weight like that, you're better off finding another match than suffering through the unavoidable streak of embarrassing losses.

9. The Kid
The last four Call of Duty games were rated Mature, but that hasn't stopped irresponsible parents from letting their prepubescent brats jump online and ruin the fun for everyone else with their high-pitched voices, incessant lobby singing, and eardrum shattering shrieks. These entitled kids defiantly keep on blabbering despite the chorus of "SHUT UP" that inevitability rains down from every rational human being in the game lobby. Odds are these obnoxious rug rats are the reason Activision added the mute toggle in the first place.

8. The Lone Wolf
A breed of annoying gamer born out of years of deathmatches, the lone wolf only cares about the personal glory of a positive kill/death ratio. That's perfectly fine in TDM, but when you jump into Domination or Search and Destroy it's time to set aside your narcissistic goals and be a team player. Not these stat freaks. Instead of helping out with the objectives, these jerks run to their favorite camping zones, and justify their go-it-alone behavior it by saying their godly kill numbers are helping keep the opposing team away from the objectives in the first place. What's the big deal about a great K/D ratio, anyway? Are you awarded 7,000 vestal virgins when you die? Is it something you can put on your resume to find gainful employment? Here's the bottom line: Nobody cares dude. When even Ice-T is sick of your crap, it's time to take a look in the mirror.

7. The Stoner
The stoner is the easiest annoying player to spot. For many of these mind-numbed gamers, it's not just a hobby, it's a lifestyle. They showcase their support for THC by using pot leaf emblems, picking Gamertags with "420" somewhere in the name, and by telling everyone in the lobby how unbelievably high they are when they arrive in the match. If you can tune out the crappy jam band playing in the background of their mics, you can even hear the faint sound of bong hits in between spawns. The marijuana may take away their pain from repeatedly dying thanks to diminished reflexes, but there is no secondhand smoke to ease the agony of their now-shorthanded teammates.
