There IS a hardcore mode, go to the server browser instead of quick-matching and press the right thumb stick to filter, and choose Hardcore.idk what it is but MW3 reminds me so much of the first MW. i think playing BF3 for 10 days straight day and night burnt me out on it. I was level 29 when most people were barely pushing level 10. Averaging 5k-7k points a round. i just hate how there isnt a Hardcore mode on BF3. So Hardcore DOM on MW3 it will be at least until i move.
