When you're playing Call of Duty games online, you're probably heavily focused on the kills, and the wins. If you're anything like me, that'll most certainly be the case. But it's not always about complete focus on kills and boosting your kill / death ratio. In fact, there are lots of other strategies which can be perfect for helping to boost your score and therefore your stats. Let's take a look at three tips that you can use to gain the competitive edge – and make yourself a force to be reckoned with when you're playing Call of Duty games online.
Play games for points and net even more
Most Call of Duty players are in it for the kills. They want to see their kill / death ratio as healthy as possible, and they see netting tons of kills as a route to that. But that's not actually the best way to do things – not always anyway. Take a game like Kill Confirmed. In this mode (of Modern Warfare 3), you get 50 points every time you pick up a dog tag. So even if you have not got any kills, you can still make a lot of points.
Level up your weapons as well as your character
It's easy to get distracted when playing Call of Duty games online, and start focusing too heavily on the number next to your name. But – at least in Modern Warfare 3 – there are numbers on your guns, too. You can gain a lot of powerful weapons (and XP) simply by using as many weapons as you possibly can. So do not be too hemmed in when it comes to weapon of choice!
Be a team player, and use killstreak rewards that help your allies
In all Call of Duty games online , you can earn killstreaks that reward either you (an airstrike, for example), or your team (ballistic vests). If you choose to focus on yourself, you'll get a few more kills, sure, but you may score even more highly if you're able to help your team. Take ballistic vests, for example. By placing these for your team, you'll get 50 points every time someone picks one up. And if you've played a game of Modern Warfare 3 online, you'll know how tempting it is to pick up one of those ballistic vests. Be a team player and the points are sure to follow.
So there you have it, three great tips for netting even more points in Call of Duty games online. Always keep your wits about you, play to win, and I'll see you on the battlefield!
