Saint570's Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Guide
News! Updated SMG Weapon Section.
Hey, i'm making this guide to aid people who are struggling on the game and might need some help. Personnaly when i first started playing MW2 i sucked. Now my k/d ratio is 1:98. Hopefully this guide will help you and you'll have a more enjoyable time playing
The first thing you should do is change your options. You can change your stick and button layouts to w/e you like best, i think that stick should be default and button should be tactical.
Now you should change your sensitivity to 5. If you're wondering what sensitivity is, it's basicly how fast the screen moves. The reason you should start on 5 is because it'll move pretty fast if you usually played on 3 and it would be too much of a jump to move straight from 3 sens to 10. You should gradually move up sensitivity to 7+
In Modern Warfare 2 theres a huge range of weapons to choose from. The Primary Weapons are: Assult Rifles,Sub-Machine Guns,Light Machine Guns,Sniper Rifles and the Riot Shield.
Assult Rifle :-
M4A1,FAMAS,SCAR-H,TAR-21,FAL,M16A4,ACR,F2000 And the AK-47.
You should pick your assult rifle based on how you play. If you play Aggressively you should use a gun like the TAR-21 or a F2000. The reasons for using these guns is that they both have the worst accuracy but best fire rate and damage. If you are a camper you should use a accurate gun so you can pick off targets from long range easily, You should use a Any assult rifle other than the TAR or f2000. If you play a mix of both you should probably use a m16,famas,scar or a ak-47. Obviously you can choose what you want, but these are my reccomendations.
My weapon of choice. I play fast and agressive which makes me require a gun that has power and speed. SMG's give you that but the only downside to them is there range. The UMP is the best weapon in the game probably because it has 40-35 Damage which means it deals 40 damage /100 at close and 35/100 at long range. The power at long range even beats the ACR at close and long range. The UMP is the best choice and for anyone going for SMG's and if you're a try hard use it. If you like just to have some fun and relax use any of the others. my favourite for fun is Vector ACOG and silencer. Seriously that gun looks amazing.
LMG's are a great way to provide support to your team. The 3 Best imo are the RPD,AUG H-BAR and if you can control it the L86 LSW. LMG's are heavy so you will move so with them. But what they lack in speed they make up for in power.
Sniper Rifle's :-
Snipers are used to pick off long range targets. When sniping try not to go to obvious spots where other snipers will get you. You should try and snipe in cover like grass and bushes.
I would reccomend using either a intervention or a barret. if you are using a m21ebr, make sure you use FMJ.
Riot Shield :-
The riot sheild is mainly used for defensive purposes like covering your team.
But if used properly it is also good offensivly, use throwing knifes when the are reloading and also try and get enemies attention so you distract them and your team can get a easy kill.
If you disagree with what i've said. Just use w/e you want.
Perks & Killstreaks.
Perks are extremely useful in mw2, You should think carefully about choosing.
Blue Perks :-
Sleight of hand - You should use this if you spray bullets alot or just dont think you need any other blue perk.
Marathon - Useful for a knifing class, but best used for Search 'n' Destroy.
Scavenger - Useful if you are trying to get a good killstreak and good if you spam grenade's.
Bling - If you dont think you need any of the other perks, use bling. Bling gives you two weapon attachments which is extremly useful if you cant decide what attachment to take.
OMA (TY bling) - OMA is a great substitution for Scavenger. Lets say, for example, you are on Wasteland and you are on a great killstreak but you don't have any ammunition left. Scavenger would be useless unless you manage to knife someone. Use OMA to refresh your class or choose another class that you desire.
Red Perks :-
The Red Perks are the most Best perks and the are the one's that'll really give you a boost.
Stopping Power - My personal favourite is this perk. It increases your Weapons damage, which is why its the most popular perk in the game.
Lightweight - Useful for a knifing class and also a good perk for "rushing" in Search n D.
Hardline - Hardline makes Killstreaks require 1 less kill, Personnaly i think SP is more useful.
Cold-Blooded - Basicly the stealthy perk. Using this will make you invisible from UAV's,air support, sentries and thermal sights.
Danger Close - Increases explosive damage. Good if you're using a grenade launcer or any other kind of missile.
Green Perks. :-
Commando :- Commando increases your knife's distance greatly and is one of the most useful perks in the game.
Steady Aim :- When firing from the hip it will make your crosshairs smaller for more accurate shots. Useful for guns with lots of recoil.
Scrambler :- Only useful when they have a UAV, otherwise it gives away your position. Only use in radar on matches. Also use this in 1v1 if radar is on and you'll have a huge advantage
Sitrep :- See enemy explosives. Not the best choice in this game due to the fact that traps arent as common as they are in the other CoD's because they now are in the Equipment section.
Last Stand :- Dont use or most people will hate you.
Also use Painkiller as youre death streak.
Spot Enemies On The Radar,
Except Those With Coldblooded,
More UAVs in use at once, the more frequent dots come up.
GoodFor: All Gametypes
Block enemy radar for a short time
Goodfor: when enemy has UAV
Picks A Random Killstreak, and uses it.
Smaller killstreaks are picked more frequently
You cannot get another capepackage, emergancyairdrop or tact.nuke from carepackage.
Extra ammo can be rewarded from a carepackage
You pick up a carepackage in app.3 seconds
enemys and teammates have app 6 seconds
Airdrop that when can be picked up by anyone
you can place it nearly anywhere, and it will shoot others when spotted (unless they have coldblooded)
it can be destroyed with one knife, or loads of bullets.
you can move it when placed.
Goodfor: Objective Based Games (Place near objective)
Enemys seen with box around them.
can be sped up by pressing shoot button.
you open a laptop and command it yourself.
it makes about the same explosion size a stinger does.
Brilliant in objective based games
An, airstrike you can place anywhere on the map,
i would not prefer using this. Mostly because you can get a harrier for one more kill.
its just my opinion, disagree if youd like
A notverywell armored helicopter, that first goes through a bombing stage, then shoots.
I would say this is an extremely good killstreak to use. This will shoot down enemy helicopters.
A helicopter that is pretty well armored, and shoots down enemies.
This is like the pavelow's younger brother.
I would not prefer using this over harriarstrike ANYDAY
An airdrop with 4 random carepackages,
This could change how a game goes for your whole team, probably one of the more helpful team-associated killstreaks
A really good helicopter, thats well armored and can shoot fast. Stays in air for quite some time.
The, not add to killstreak glitch has been patched, and now makes for an effective chopper.
This killstreak is sexy.
it is an airstrike that will wipe out a large portion of the map
This is the *censored*. A chopper u can command yourself, gets you loads of kills.
Amazingly hard to shoot down. Spawnkilling machine. The only problem is who is piloting the chopper is a dumbass.
Better than AC130 ANYDAY!
You can kill yourself with this.
You can command it, say its ur mininuker.
i dont prefer using it over choppergunner. its well armored, u can get an amazingly cool animated emblem for it.
Doesnt shoot frequently enough.
You can kill yourself with this
Disables the enemy's electronics for quite some time.
Enemy killstreaks cannot be used.
Thermals wont work.
This is a great killstreak, with tight emblem.
Ends the game, kills all players even yourself.
My Fav Set up's
For game modes with spawning enabled
Game Modes With No Respawns
COUNTER UAV/CARE PACKAGE
Part 4 End
Obviously by doing all this you wont exactly be the best. But if your still playing bad, just practice. Hopefully this guide will have helped you and have a great day! Also please no negative comments
