After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

5 Tips For Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Piazza And Liberation Maps

Posted on Friday, January 27 @ 10:59:05 PST by

While researching these tips, I realized how much I suck at Call of Duty. When someone buys into Activision's Elite service, it goes a long way in describing how much he or she plays the game or what skill level best describes that player. I am not Elite. I am terrible.

Still, I've watched the tapes and seen how my enemies bested me. Here's how they did it:

1) Beware of Snipers on Liberation


This should be painfully obvious. The wide open spaces and long lines of sight make Liberation sniper heaven. Consequently, it makes it hell for your brains, especially when they get splattered all over the bridges, the open court yard with the gazebo, the rear parking lot and nearly every where in between. The only place that isn't necessarily in danger of scope-sights is the underground tunnel, but the entrances are certainly open for fire.

2) Be a Sniper on Liberation


Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Even if you're not normally a Sniper, objective game types can lend themselves to a great tutorial for up and coming hunters. Objectives mean you know where the enemy is headed and where their attention is focused. Set up with a decent line of sight in the opposite direction and pick your opponents off in transit.

If you're a total noob like me, there's a differentiation between rifles and where you decide to set up camp. The single-shot sniper rifles are great for destroying your enemies as they run across your sight horizontally. If you're going to set up in a position where enemies will run towards or away from you, feel free to equip a rifle that might require two shots to take an enemy down. Be smart people.


3) Know Liberation's High Traffic Areas


You're playing a sniper, so in order to be the biggest asset, you'll want to minimize movement and maximize enemy damage. That means you'll want to hole up where there's going to be a lot of foot traffic. You know how spiders just sit there waiting for flies and shit to get caught in their webbing? Be the spider.



4) Play Piazza on Spec Ops Survival First


Piazza is literally a bird's nest of pathways, staircases, and tunnels. You will absoultely get lost. There is no doubt about it. Before you hop online and get worked over by everyone else, play a few round of Spec Ops survival on the map to learn what leads where and how to get from one end of the map to the other. You might even have some fun mowing down the AI baddies while you're at it.


5) Know Piazza's Fastest Routes


There will be times when you spawn on one side of Piazza while the action or objective seems like it's miles away. Minimize the time you're stuck in traffic so you're not stuck defusing the bomb with 4 seconds left. There are plenty of short cuts, back alleys, and flanking pathways that'll put you in a dominant position to the objective. Of course, watch your back because you'll likely find yourself having to defend from flanking paths when you get there.
