Modern Warfare 2 Tips
If you’re a veteran of playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 or are just a newbie starting out, there are several Modern Warfare 2 tips that you should know about to make yourself a better player. Though the game has been around since November, 2009, it still remains wildly popular today. Its multiplayer mode is one of the best around and that, in large part, accounts for its continued success. If you want to dominate your friends online, just use the following tips, soldier!
- Use your minimap! The minimap is there for a reason, and if you don’t ever glance at it to see where enemy shots are coming from, then you deserve to die like the noob that you are. It’s all about being aware and knowing where your enemies may be. I’m amazed at the number of players that don’t look at this very important tool during games. This tip should be evident to everyone, yet in the heat of battle, many players forget about the minimap.
- Customize your soldier and use your perks. When you start out in COD: MW2, you get default classes to choose from. As you build up your experience points, you will open new weapons and obtain new perks. Choosing the right weapons and perks for the style of play that you are most comfortable with is key. If, for example, you like to play as a sniper, then you should use Sleight of Hand for faster reloading as Perk One, Cold Blooded as Perk Two to avoid detection, and Ninja as Perk Three to be able to avoid heartbeat sensors. This is pretty common sense stuff.
- Keep your ammo full. Another fairly evident Modern Warfare 2 tip is that you should always reload your gun whenever you have a break in the action. This cannot be emphasized enough. Engaging an enemy without a full clip is really unforgivable. You most likely will find yourself running out of bullets and dead all because you didn’t take the couple of seconds to reload your weapon when you had the chance.
- Learn the maps and find places to hide. Running and gunning may be fun, but most likely you’re going to end up near the bottom of the score list if you adopt this strategy because other, wiser, players will be hiding in some dark corner to take you out. If you’re new to the game, go into matches with small numbers of players so you can learn each map and find good hiding places that offer cover. After you’ve gotten a good idea of the map layouts and found some good places to take cover or where you can get a good view of the terrain, you can then get into matches with large numbers of players. You should always stay close to a wall, a tree, a tank, or some other object that can offer you cover.
- Don’t be headshot happy. When you look at a person you can easily notice how much smaller the head is than the torso. So why would you try to aim for the head when a much larger target is available? Sure, headshots are cool and you get extra points for them, but if you want to score consistently, take your shots at the larger mass of your opponent and shoot him in the body. This tip alone should up your score level consistently.
