Modern Warfare Out Friday, 10 Tips for Multiplayer

Ready for launch? Here are the top 10 tips that every Operator should know when heading into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer.

launches imminently, and if you’re like us, you’re ready to spend the entire opening weekend playing this new entry to the Call of Duty franchise.

Whether you participated in Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer Alpha and Beta periods, or are jumping into the game for the first time, there is always room for improvement as a Tier One Operator. We’ve studied this game to give you as much intel as possible so that you have the tools to become a Modern Warfare master.

We’ve summarized what we’ve learned while playing the game into a handy top-10 list that anyone – from a recruit to a veteran – can learn from.

Operators, these are your Top-10 Tips for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer:

10. Play the Campaign and Special Ops. While we know a good portion of players just enjoy Multiplayer, there is a lot to be learned about Modern Warfare through its Campaign and Special Ops modes. Exploring these modes could give you a bit more practice with the game’s basic mechanics against A.I. opponents, whose difficulty can be adjusted to offer a challenge for any skill level.

9. Open up those Options. Default settings are a great starting point for any newcomer, yet it’s not the end-all be-all for how the game should be played. Whether it’s trying out new sensitivity settings and button layouts or fine-tuning visual options to your comfort level, the biggest step towards improving your game could be the changes you make before dropping into battle.

8. Know your Loadout. A shotgun may not be the best weapon for long-range sharpshooting and hitting a target with a sniper rifle without aiming down sights can be difficult. Even if tensions are high in battle, always keep in mind the strengths and weaknesses of your loadout.

7. Think like a Tier One Operator. The best players in Modern Warfare know the value of staying alive and taking calculated risks. Reckless deaths may lead to the enemy gaining the upper hand, so it may be wise to take a tactical approach and consider all options before diving headfirst into combat.

6. If there is an objective, consider playing around it. When playing objective-based game modes, you’re more likely to get into engagements and win games by focusing on the objective at hand. Plus, the potential XP gained for capturing objectives and the multiple challenges revolving around winning games, make it worth considering playing the objective.

5. Take the drive to Enlisted Rank 55. When you first start Multiplayer, you will be limited to default loadouts, a few Killstreaks, and two Field Upgrades. However, as you play the game and gain experience for both your Operator and weapons, you’ll be able to further customize loadouts and more to your playstyle. Keep on ranking up until you have the entire arsenal at your disposal at Enlisted Rank 55.

4. Experimentation could equal success. Don’t be afraid to try out a new weapon, Killstreak, Field Upgrade, or even an attachment. Who knows? Coming out of your comfort zone could help you get a step closer to upping your game and finding an epic win streak.

3. Communication is key. Tier One Operators is a plural term. The best in the business probably rely on their squadmates to execute the mission at hand. Whether you dive into Multiplayer with friends or make some new ones in the lobby, clear, effective communication can go a long way in battle.

2. Intel is power, both in-game and out. Having what we call a high “COD IQ” – knowledge of the game and its mechanics – can help in online matches against fellow community members. Be sure to check the Activision Games Blog often for a variety of guides – from basic movement tips to map and mode specific tactics – that will help up your COD IQ.

1. Our most important tip, as always on our blog, is to have fun! It’s only a game, after all. Party up with friends, don’t sweat the tough losses, and just play!

We’ll see you online, and until then, stay frosty.

    Really clutching at straws with this article. All 10 ‘tips’ are just stating the obvious! Looks like someone wrote it on a Friday afternoon.

    • My personal favorite – “if there’s an objective, consider playing around it”. Wow, never thought of that one… I do wish more of my teammates would actually play the objectives though, so I guess the obvious isn’t so obvious to everyone.

  • What about spawn kills/trap will this be addressed in this call of duty multiplayer?

  • Dont suck and you wont get spawn trapped?

  • Hmmm, the Outer Worlds comes out on the same date yet no mention…. I mean, I like CoD games but I only play single player because most multiplayer matches have rude people or people who think a GAME is everything and if you mess up you are the anti-christ so I gave up on multiplayer a long time ago.

      they actually listened to some of the original fans and put story mode back in along with co-op. though most games are made for the super hardcore or super casual. there is no happy medium.

  • I started playing the new game this morning October 25. I am a below average player and I do die quite often. That being said it is really frustrating to have to wait for a teammate to resurrect you instead of just being able to come back to play like previous call of duty games. Anybody have any comments about this feature?

  • Obvious, but it does get me hyped to play this game…can’t wait…

  • Amazing game.
    Is it possible to share play multiplayer with one other person? Haven’t been able to try it.

    Also, please unlock split-screen for co-op.
