Call of Duty Elite: PS3 Walkthrough

Dan Amrich's Avatar + Posted by Dan Amrich on Nov 08, 2011 // Community Manager, Activision

Call of Duty players all have one big thing in common: Call of Duty. Sounds obvious, I know, but I think that’s enough. Now, some of you reading this are fantastic Call of Duty players. Some of you stink on ice. Let me slide over on this big block of frozen water to make room for you folks in the latter camp. Come sit next to me and we can talk about why we always seem to be on the wrong end of a noob tube.

That said, the gap between the masters and the students is not that wide. We’re all playing for the same reason – Call of Duty games are fun, that’s all. I’ll always take an opportunity to learn and improve, but even when I get my ass handed to me online, as long as I enjoy the company of the people I’m playing with, I’m more likely to leave a session laughing, regardless of KDR.

This is where Call of Duty Elite comes in. Not many games have 30 million people playing them, so the idea behind Elite was to give all those players a common ground – a service that would help them connect, compete, and improve. We’re all playing together as it is; let’s play together better.

This summer, some of you may have had a chance to check out the Elite beta, which gave PlayStation 3 players an early taste of the service. The beta only incorporated data from Black Ops, but Elite’s launch date of November 8 – same as Modern Warfare 3 – is no coincidence. The beta was truly just the beginning. Well, before the beginning, if you think about it.

Check your stats. Tweak your loadouts. Analyze heat maps from all the matches you’ve played in the last month and learn what you did right and wrong. See your stats using each weapon in the game and get detailed advice on how to use it better. Track your performance and compare it instantly to that of your friends on custom leaderboards. Create a clan and Join social groups of players with similar interests. I found groups for guitars, juggling, and Ghostbusters; if you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can create your own. (You are hereby invited to join the OneOfSwords group – that one’s mine.)

Elite04
All that stuff is free. No charge. Thank you for being a Call of Duty player, says Activision. Enjoy this extra stuff.

What’s more, in MW3, Elite is fully integrated into the game. Wanna change your loadout during the day for your big match that night? Just visit the website, change your settings, and it will automatically push to the game, waiting for your next login. Don’t want to use the web? Use your iOS or Android device. Just want to do it all on your console? No problem – there’s a PlayStation 3 downloadable program that you can download and use from directly within MW3. That Elite PS3 application is free. The mobile app is free. The website is free, too.

If you are a dedicated player and you want more from Elite, you can sign up for a premium membership (using the funds in your PlayStation Wallet, of course) to access a ton of extra features – most notably, you’ll get ALL of the MW3 DLC content as soon as it is released on PS3, ready and waiting for you the day it comes out. You’ll also have access to exclusive Elite TV programming to high-stakes competitions for real-world prizes (like iPads, Jeeps, and trips to Paris) to more video storage space to all the MW3 DLC that will be released, ready and waiting for you on the day it’s released. There’s a big chart that goes into all the relevant details here. And if you like what you see, anybody who activates a premium membership before November 13 will receive Founder status, which comes with its own benefits. Plus, you get to say “I was there from the beginning.”

Regardless of how you wind up using Call of Duty Elite, just remember why it’s there: to serve and unite the community of CoD players. Maybe you’re wonderful sniper, maybe you’re terrible flag runner, or maybe you’re simply a work in progress as a player. Call of Duty Elite is here to make your triumphs into celebrations, your losses into educational tools, your performance into prizes, and your opponents into your friends. After all, we all have one big thing in common.

Why would you sell a service that is out of order, or does not work? Shouldn,t you get the service up and running atleast. By law we should be able to pro rate ourselves and get some money back! You guys release content before it is all the way working! Would you buy a car that didnt have a gas tank, and you had to wait three days for them to fix it? Or a house with out a roof in the winter time? Sure if your an a hole or an idiot!

Well, i was stupid and too anxious and pre-ordered thru the internet. hopefully get it soon too. Dx(
i have to say I LOVE all the CoDs so far and hope to love this one. Also just to add, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, Assasin’s Creed: Revelations and the other new games all look AWSOME and seriously can’t wait to paly them!! :D

I spent 4 hours in line, then played it from 12:30am, to 3:00pm strait, no breaks! I like COD, they provide a nice range of weaponry, my fave is the ACR!!!, great maps, and a fun environment. However, I found MW3 to just me an extension of the previous. Same graphics engine, small changes to weapons, slight change to leveling, etc… Nothing that WOWed me! I just expected more form you. I just might have to try Battlefield 3, see how they stack up…

Don’t get me wrong, MW3 made improvements!!! I just thought such a big title, with so much competition, would put up a bigger fight… :)

I hope they get the connection issues fixed with Elite soon. I have been trying to enter my Founder Code from the Voucher that comes in the Hardened Edition and the Website screws up every time.

The App from PSN only works about half the time as well…. =(

I tried to sign up for Elite membership (I also have the premium) but I am stuck at 60%. The main problem I am having is it says I already have another PSN account linked. Can I reset this or something so that I can link my main account. It will let me add a secondary account that I don’t use as much but all of my trophies, and other stuff are on my account that I cannot link.

congrats to an excellent game, hopefuly between all the glitches in the bonus content will resolve, and our benefactors in the Ward can get sometime to play also. black ops was good but Infinity does it better lets hope the haters put their keyboards down and go play the games they prefer, and allow these forums to relay kudos and constructive critique, to help develope MW3 into the polished and squared away game that MW2 became,… yes still waiting for my founder status… but playing is far better way to wait…. back to the DZ
…Mystec1 out..

Anyone who buys this game is a complete ignorant and shouldn’t be called a gamer. While other games are bringing new features and becoming a full masterpiece, this thing called CoD rinses and repeat the same thing it’s been 5 years ago. Yet, all the commercials you see show no love and respect for PlayStation. It’s sad to see millions of people gathering and queuing just for something that is painted with a different color every year. Thank you Uncharted, Killzone and Battlefield to give me a full PS3 experience, not a crappy port from a crappy console.

I love mw3 but am truely a little dissapointed with the lack of ‘new’ things. Don’t get me wrong, I love mw3 but i expected a little more than a new gun or two. Then again, i don’t HAVE the game but i did watch my friend play a few games at his house and honestly, I thought he was playing on a map from a mw2 DLC (cuz i don’t have mw2 DLC i decided to just save up for B.O.). Very good job, but i am a little dissapointed.
