Originating from Modern Warfare 2
, an in-game phrase during online play that the announces to your team that a enemy was lucky enough to score an 11 kill-streak and has earned the chance to unleash destruction at the pulling of a trigger.
Hearing this phrase brings panic and chaos and generally leads to 1 of 3 things happening:
1) Players immediately run for the nearest form of cover (e.g. : buildings, houses, etc).
2) A more senior player will whip out a Javelin
and aim it at the AC130
in hopes of bringing the rampage to an end before the pilot racks up a 25 kill streak for a nuke
or 3) Newer players will stand out in the open and fire their guns at the plane, trying to bring it down. This is usually met by a 105mm
round or 40mm
round from the airplane above.
Following the announcement of the AC130's arrival, chaos ensues along with the howling entrance of 105mm rounds blasting the map to smithereens.
Computer Voice: "Enemy AC130 Above!!!"
Player 1: "Ahh shit, run for cover!"
Player 2: "Hey, I have an AT-4
. I'll shoot it down."
Player 3: "Take that! What is that sound... Oh noo!! BOOM."
