5 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Tips

Posted on Tuesday, December 13 @ 14:57:09 Eastern by
I sat down to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 the other day and I sucked so bad. Then I played for 24 hours and 27 minutes. This is what I learned.


1) Learn the Maps:

It might seem like people are constantly flanking you or that you're spawning right in front of them. That may in fact be true (although an upcoming title update should address this issue). I know it hurts, but you'll definitely find games where you're opposition has found the perfect place to exploit your team's spawn points. The most vulnerable game modes are demolition and domination.

Once you do get out of your spawn, explore the map. There are tons of nooks and crannies and alternate paths to flank your enemies or set up a good defensive position. Sometimes it's that one overlooked path that'll let you split the enemy force and flank for several kills.


2) Match Perks, Strike Package, and Weapons:

It's not enough to just pick a weapon, a handful of perks, and the default killstreak rewards. Your weapons, perks, and strike package can form together to keep you a successful and contributing member of your team, even if you don't wrack up a ton of kills.

Take this one for free: The Recon Perk allows you to mark enemies on the map for your team mates if you do explosive damage to them giving you assist points. Once you've leveled it up to Recon Pro, your bullet damage achieves the same effect. This makes it an ideal perk for Support Strike Package users who're using Hardline Pro. The pro version of that perk allows you to count up killstreak points for every two assists.


3) Play with Friends:

Everyone is always complaining about the grating, vulgar teenagers on Xbox Live. When you sell millions of copies it's not surprising that there'll be a few horribly rotten apples that stink up to high heaven. That can be pretty easily fixed by playing with a few decent people in a party. Maybe you meet them in the game because they were actually coordinating with the rest of the team or maybe you use the Call of Duty Elite service to find a group of like-minded individuals.


4) Make it a Meta Game:

Call of Duty has become increasingly focused on challenges and levels, with Modern Warfare 3 including the ability to level the gun in your hands and tweak it to your liking. There are tons of ways to earn new emblems and titles and most of them will make a losing game a lot more fun. Finding the rest of your team uncooperative? Go for three kills with knives only. Try to nab a set number of skills with a killstreak reward.

It might seem like a drip feed of new content, but collecting the titles and emblems can feel like an achievement on its own.


5) Don't Play Call of Duty, Go Outside:

It might seem silly to say this, but if you're not enjoying the game, don't play multiplayer. There's single-player and spec-ops missions and survival mode too. There are other options. Once you've spent some time in the other game modes you might find your reflexes and knowledge of the game's mechanics have increased.

Or you know... just play something else... or go outside.
