If we can't stop killstealing, then why don't we...

...make up for it. Dare I bring it up, but Call of Duty has a system in Kill Confirmed were you will earn partial credit for having a teammate confirm your kill. This could be as simple as earning 25 or 30 parts if a teammate executes one of your downs. It doesn't seem like there's a whole lot you can do to prevent killstealing without messing with situations where it's necessary, besides maybe a delay on special executions that aren't yours, so why don't we make up for it?

The enemy dies, shouldn't matter who on your team killed him.

True sanddude but you may have gone out your way to get a kill to get half the reward.

It isn't even half, if you add up a down and an execution, a down is still worth more I believe, regular execution at least, can't be certain for a special one not like I do them anymore since they leave you way to open.

I think an update like that is unnecessary. I've had executions taken from me and I've taken some from others, its part of the game. If someone is intentionally taking your executions, then simply finish your downs with an extra shot or two to get your execution points. Regardless, I'd take a team win over a few missed points on an execution. Going out and playing super killer will only get you killed more ultimately leading to less opportunities anyway. Just my opinion Smiley Happy

Kind of surprised by people's reactions to such a minor tweak that woul reconcile a common annoyance. While not a huge deal, I don't really see how this could have a negative effect at all. Some guy steal some points that you deserve? Here's a consolation. It's kin of like the Marked Target Downed bonus, only Downed Enemy Executed Nowhere have I made a big deal about this. I just noticed lots of people complaining about it and it gets on my nerves sometimes as well. It doesn't seem right to grant temporary immunity to a downed enemy that isn't yours, so I thought I'd offer up my suggestion.

Steal my kill, I intentionally follow you around the map the rest of the match and take your executions.

If it's JUST a game then why the hell are you on a forum? For video games? Obviously you care.
