    Lightweight Pro is Pointless

    So after using for a while, I find it pretty pointless. Supposedly the pro version gives you no damage taken from falling, but there's so few sections in the game where you actually need this to prevent fatality from jumping off a high ground, because there's barely any tall buildings in the maps that are above 2 stories (I counted around 6 or 7 and only around a few maps like Launch or Array).

    Wait actually, I don't think there IS ANY buildings above two stories in this game at all :|

    And the run faster part is pointless also once you get marathon pro, because you literally have unlimited sprint, so it basically just becomes a useless perk. You could have had scavenger pro or hardline pro or even ghost pro to use, all of which are far more useful than this perk, I don't get why some people even use this perk. Thoughts?

    I got lightweight pro while I was playing objective games, it was easy enough and easy in terms of XP. But I never used the perk because I would rather use Hardened pro or Sleight of Hand pro. Never really found it useful anyway...
    And in the morning,
    They shook their pillows
    violently, hoping
    all the dreams they lost
    that night would tumble out.

    It's actually not pointless at all, for obective based games and even Team Deathmatch it's useful for getting or places or away from places fast and with Marathon Pro it makes it faster. There are actually places on every map where you can take falling damage. Even if it is barely any it will make a difference when an enemy is taking shots at you, and for that reason that is why all the MLG people use Lightweight Pro. In Reg though people use Flak Jacket unless the setting is turned off

    It's not about preventing you from dying by falling, it's about not giving you a disadvantage if you jump down from a high place and an enemy is somewhere near. So it's definately not completely pointless, but I personally would rather use something else normally.

    Lightweight Pro isn't pointless if you think about it actually.
    While Marathon Pr0 doesn't even give you UNLIMITED sprint(lol treyarch)
