4 Tips On How to Get Better at Call of Duty

May 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 117

Ever since Activision and Infinity Ward released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare back in 2007, the Call of Duty franchise has literally hijacked both PS3 and Xbox 360 gaming consoles. It has caused players to fail tests, miss classes, and keep girlfriends angry. If you don't play Call of Duty, chances are you've been living under a rock, have just been born yesterday or your girlfriend has already destroyed your Xbox. The game can be very addicting and enticing but if you're not good at it or keep dying, you're not having the most fun you could be having with it.

I'm not the best Cod player out there nor do I claim to be. Last time I checked my K/D Ratio, for Modern Warfare 3, was 2.29. I started playing Cod when Modern Warfare 2 came out and had a measly 1.24 k/d ratio by the time I kicked the game for Black Ops. I have played with people who were in the 3's and 4's when it came to kill/deaths. On the contrary, I have played against kids that were running all over the place causing their teams to lose. I have noticed that the good players usually incorporate these tips into their game while the noobs don't. Without further ado, here are the 4 tips:

Tip 1. Play With A Clan

It wasn't until I started playing with a clan that I improved at Call of Duty. There are a couple of reasons why you want to start playing with a clan. First of all, when you're in a clan you get comfortable at playing Cod. You make jokes, laugh, talk about randoms things with your clan members which relaxes you. So instead of running around and getting angry with yourself after losing and/or dying, you're more likely to brush it off or laugh about it with your clan-mates. Playing with a clan builds confidence. When you play with your clan against randoms, you're in a good position to win a lot of games. Before i joined a clan, I rarely won. If you play by yourself, you rarely do. There are too much newbies running around who play for their own agenda. Nothing puts a damper on your confidence level like losing. You might not see it in the beginning but it affects your overall skill at the game. When I first joined a clan, we rarely lost. Every match become funner and I got better. I felt as though every game I play, I am going to kick ass. The reason being was because we knew each other. We knew where on the map were our favorite places and where the enemy was through communication. However, the key is to get into a good clan which brings me to my second reason for joining a clan

When getting into a clan, you want to get into a clan that has a number of players that are better than you. As with anything in life, if you want to get good at something surround yourself with people who are already good at it. This has helped me more than anything else. Playing with a clan that is better than you creates opportunities to ask the good players how to get better and it also forces you to get better through playing with better players. You can learn what they do, where on the map they go and what guns, perks and attachments they use.

Tip 2. Play Search and Destroy

For those of you, who've watched Dragonball Z, search and destroy is like the hyperbolic time chamber of call of duty. This game mode teaches you how to survive, kill and have a better feel for the map. Search and destroy focuses on surviving and getting kills to win the round and ultimately, the match. I remember playing search and destroy for a couple of months and being amazed at how good I'd become at all the other game modes. Every other game type is fairly easy once you become moderately good at search and destroy. In addition, wherever kids "camp" in normal game types get magnified in search and destroy. What you have is a bunch of noobs that are afraid of dying so they hide out. This is a gift and curse. A curse in that it gets frustrating when you're on a roll and a noob kills because he is camping so hard that the marshmallows are just bursting out of his rifle. It's also a gift because after a few days playing search you'll find out all the hiding places and have a one up on them.

Tip 3. Keep Your Gun at Mid-Level

There are a lot of players that aim their gun down while running through the map. What happens is when you find yourself face to face with another opponent, you have to swing your gun up and to whichever side the enemy is facing. It takes takes too much time and is inefficient. If you have the gun up already, all you have to do is swing it left or right. It's common sense and pretty simple but I've played with a lot of people who always have their gun facing down. Ideally, you want to aim with the crosshairs then aim in.

Tip 4. WALK Around The Map

Last but not least, my fourth tip. Walk as much as you can and do it around the map. Countless times, I've killed a newbie running across the very middle of the map. There are two reasons why you DON'T want to do this. Firstly, when you venture into the middle or center of maps you can get picked off in any direction. The second reason is not only does this get you killed but it gets you paranoid. You want to be as calm as possible when playing the game and I can't think of two things that gets me on edge like running and going in the middle of the map. When I play, I walk around the map as much as I can. I feel as though when I am walking I have more time to react to situations and see more enemies whether they are at a distance or hiding in a camping spot. Also, it is quicker to aim in when you're walking rather than running. Try running only to turn. It should be a quick movement. Other than that, walk only. There are times when you're in the zone and know where enemies are and walking will only slow you down, but if you're not "in the zone", just walk. You want to walk AROUND the map. If you're walking around the map, you get to pick off enemies that are running in the middle of the map very easily and you only have to look to your right and in front of you if you are walking around the map clockwise and visa versa.

There you have it. Those are my 4 tips on how to get better at call of duty. Most of them are fairly simple but nevertheless can help you improve your game if you incorporate them. I hoped you've got something out of this article and apply these tips to better your game. Now, get out of here. Duty's calling!
