I am starting off with MW3 and have been watching some videos from other players on YouTube. I feel like they do a good job of killing enemies on the move while moving from one location to another.

I do good if I camp out in one location and shoot enemies. This has some limitations, though.

  1. It takes time; sometimes enemies wait outside for a little bit before they appear.
  2. I can't rely on this when 3+ juggernauts appears after a wave of 25+.

I understand practice is the best way to achieve this. Beside practice, are there other things like sensitive settings, perks like "Extreme conditioning"?

P.S.: I use Xbox.

I think you're specifically referencing survival mode here. The issue with survival mode isn't that you need to get the drop on enemies, so much as it is that they are plentiful and well distributed throughout the map. It's quite easy to get surrounded in many areas of the map, where 3 or more enemies are attacking at the same time.

What you might do is practice runs around the map where you are trying not to stay in locations where you might be approached from multiple angles. Enemies tend to spawn in waves, so if you get a good run around the map going, you can kind of "train" them into a pack that will only attack from a single direction. This will allow you to more easily get to cover, since you can generally predict how the whole pack will move.

Focus on corners - you want a route that includes many corners, so that you can block their line of fire quickly. Avoid dead ends, as you'll be quickly overwhelmed if you're backed into a corner.

When it comes to the Juggernaut rounds, I try to give the Juggernauts many targets, and have body armor on. Since they move slowly, try to leave them for last, or at least for a break between enemy waves.

Having sentry guns and "sacrificial" riot team and Delta team squads can give you enough extra firepower and "meat shields" that you can take them on toe-to-toe. Flashbangs will stop them from firing long enough to generally get a clip off into them. Aim for the head.

You can also get them to try to melee you instead of firing if you get close, and then quickly back away. Their melee animation is long and can give your "backup" time to fire, but you need to ensure that you don't get hit, or you'll be in trouble.

I find perks like Quickdraw PRO are very helpful since it helps you aim down your sight 50% faster. Also Steady Aim Pro for better accuracy shooting from the hip(not having your gun down the sight) and also aim faster while sprinting. Sleight of Hand Pro or Extreme Conditioning Pro are good for the run and gun type.

Do the spec ops called STAY SHARP. This will def get you prepared for a fast paced environment with enemies popping up at you.

I also find that always having my gun raised around corners helps and if you know someone is around get into prone since it is harder to spot you since they are always looking up.

This chart will show you which guns have the fastest raise time and you can pick and choose from there. Link of it here if you want to see it bigger: http://mp1st.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/N3N1V.jpeg

Sensitivity is personal preference. Don't listen to people on your online service who say "higher sensitivity is better because you can turn faster". It's entirely untrue. You can turn faster, sure, but your aim suffers greatly because of it.

Your play style might not be the run and gun type. You also might be using the wrong weapons for trying to run and gun. Assault rifles are the most versatile weapons in the game, try a couple of those until you find one you like.

Other than that, honestly, just practice.

I'd also suggest migrating to PC where the real competitive experience is. You'll find that problems like this are non-existent on PC because of the superior control method.
