Statwhoring 101: 6 Great Apps for Gamers

gameapps
Mobile games are dope and all (come see us in Tiger Woods PGA Tour!) but sometimes all we want to do while we're waiting in line at the methadone clinic bank is get a jump on whatever console multiplayer game we're geeking out on at the moment. And at this moment, it's the two big dogs in the FPS world, Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield Bad Company 2. Thankfully, a number of app developers have recognized our obsessions, and released a number of apps that let us use our commute for productivity, instead of just reading the news or literature or other useless pursuits. Need to know how one gun stocks up against another? How close you are to that elusive insignia? Pick one of these apps and get on the fast-track to champion status. And by "champion status," we mean "crippling dysfunction."

UNOFFICIAL BFBC2 GUIDE
Price: $1.99
Complex Says: Its maps may be cursory, but a nice dynamic weapon comparison function (your selected gun stays frozen at the top while you scroll through other weapons below it) makes this a decent little dip-in app.

bfbc2manual

BFBC2 SURVIVAL MANUAL
Price: $1.99
Complex Says: The best of the BFBC2 bunch, if you ask us. In-depth weapon stats, full explanation of all multiplayer point allotments, and even a nice single-walkthrough so achievement hunters can track down all the M-COM stations and collectible weapons in the single-player campaign.

BFBC2 GUIDE
Price: $.99
Complex Says: What it lacks in weapons specs—it sticks with the stock bars you see in the game itself—it makes up for by delivering the most dynamic experience of all the BFBC2 apps, from live video search to hi-res maps to the official BFBC2 Twitter feed. You need connectivity, so it's useless for the subway, but a nifty pickup for less then a buck.

BATTLE PLAN
Price: $1.99
Complex Says: A good mix of static info and dynamic content. The weapon stats may not be as detailed as others, but the in-app encyclopedia and class builder functions are nice touches, and a YouTube-powered video finder delivers gameplay vids and inexplicable real-life gun videos to your iPhone/iPod. Weird, but dope.

unlocks

MODERN UNLOCKS 2
Price: $.99
Complex Says: Notable in that it's a full rundown of all the titles/emblems/achievements in the game—and it's trackable, so you can see how close you are to that coveted thermal scope/NBK emblem/etc. Of course, if Activision or Infinity Ward allowed access to its servers, this could be automated and refreshable, but who are we to be picky?

mw2will

UNOFFICIAL MW2 GUIDE
Price: $1.99
Complex Says: From the same developer who brought you the Unofficial BFBC2 Guide and its oh-so-vivid name comes the MW2 counterpart. It's got the same detailed weapons stats and comparisons, but also adds a nice dynamic "Classes" function that lets you view the most popular setups (including perks and killstreaks!) out there. Fun fact: the most popular perk setup is Sleight of Hand Pro/Cold Blooded Pro/Steady Aim Pro. What, no Commando?
