I was sure this had been answered before but I couldn't find it... The holographic provides a small amount of "Zoom" of the sight (not the rest of the world) in comparison to the Red Dot (obviously looking down either or just your "irons" provides some level of Zoom). As a result the "dot" on the Holographic is slightly larger and covers more of your ...

No, there are no achievements for that level. There is an easter egg where you can walk over to one of the museum desks that has a button. Pressing the button makes the characters come alive and try to kill you. If you want to complete the achievements, you can find a complete list here. If you need help, you can also consult the achievement guide.

Both games implement some combination of or have variations for each of the following features: Scope sway Gravity induced bullet drop Bullet travel time Body posture Clothing (Ghillies) Tools Battlefield:BC2 Scope sway None. BC2 does not implement a "breathing" aspect for sniping. Thus your crosshairs are stationary unless you move them. Gravity ...

It's much easier with a co-op partner. When I did it, we split the targets between us in a predefined fashion so we had the whole run choreographed. I think aiming is necessary but only for a split second i.e. aim-shoot all at once.

You need to get XP as fast as possible: Throwing Knife gives much XP. Try to get Payback as much as possible. Easy killstreak rewards such as UAV, Care Package and Predator Missile give XP when used. Headshots give extra XP. One shot kills idem. Never quit a match, you won't get match bonus. Just try everything to get much XP. OR You can get a fridge ...

Modern Warfare 3 features the Prestige Shop. Prestige you've performed in a previous Call of Duty games (MW1, World at War, MW2, Black Ops) earns you a single prestige token per game. Prestige tokens can be spent in the shop to unlock things like an additional custom classes, special emblems and titles, and numerous other features. Full list (from here): ...

Modern Warfare 2 (in fact all the Infinity Ward / Treyarch COD games) are based on a heavily modernised variant of the Quake 3 engine. This means that the server (and other clients connected to it) can send config data files to your machine and pass on weird settings. There was an exploit some dude did on a hacked X360 version of the 1st Modern Warfare ...

First of all, you should have a fairly good idea of the map layout. That way, you'll know what to expect, and from where. Learn common hiding places. The Strategy Stay out of his line of sight. Use available cover at all times. Don't just run around in the open. If you know there's a sniper nearby, take an alternate route and surprise him, or just avoid ...

I would say avoid big games especially Ground War. It seems it's easier to get kills because there's more people but in fact it's a lot harder to get high kill streak because of bigger chance of getting killed. Do learn the maps as fast as you can so you can easily pick good spots and avoid those from where you can get killed from easily. Watch killcams for ...

Sleight of Hand Pro Stopping Power Steady Aim Intervention, FMJ Practice with a throwing knife if you want, but you need to try and get the character in the middle of your screen and tap the sight and fire at almost the same time. You should not even really see through the scope at any time, though that's up to you to decide what works best. Also ...

As far as I know, Pavelow has always counted. Only care package drops/sentry guns don't count and any killstreaks that you earned in a previous life do not count. All other killstreaks count towards a higher killstreak as long as you don't die. That is, if I were to earn Pavelow via a 9 kill streak and then die, the kills that the Pavelow will get will ...

In the Call of Duty series, there isn't a ton of focus on balance between weapons in the same class. Just because a weapon is unlocked later doesn't mean that it is any better than any other weapon in that class. There are almost always a few clear winners in the weapon lineup in every Call of Duty game, and those tend to be used the most often by the ...

It's part of his plan. He planned for the missile to explode above the atmosphere, creating an EMP that disabled vehicles and electronics. The Americans still had the advantage in this situation.

Attach FMJ to the weapon you are trying to complete the challenge with. Then follow an enemy with your fire as they run for cover. Or otherwise try to get them behind cover once they are hiding. Often, you can easily spot someone behind a window or a wall when the barrel of their weapon is sticking out. Easiest to shoot through is sheet metal like the most ...

The best thing to do is land on a mattress. For example, there are mattresses at the bottom of the sniper ledge on Afghan, and it always amazes me the number of people who miss them. If you are very careful, you can often 'slide' down things, but that is touch and go. EDIT: Oh yeah... and commando pro. I totally forgot that one.

One of the major considerations i make when creating a load out is "What do i want to do with this load out?" then i pick and choose perks that best suit that end goal.

To expand on what Arda Xi said once the package lands it should show an arrow with an image inside.

It is the current production version of the each game. It started to display the current version number with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

This is what the lead developer has to say on the subject: None of the basic game files are modified, most of them are replaced with custom versions or specific versions shipped by IW in patches. Also, reverse-engineering claims are invalid in Europe to my knowledge, which is where I am located. I'm afraid replacing files does counts as modifying, and ...

Anything greater than 1 is "good". More kills than deaths. Really good players do better than that. But more kills than deaths is probably a good starting point.

Though not helpful, Some assumptions can be made: AimTarget_GetTagPos - Likely this is refering to the hitbox (or target area) that you are currently targeting (with your reticle) tag[j_helmet] - I'm out on a limb here, but I'm guessing this is refering to the helmet area of a person. Now why this is importaint is that MW2 likely calculates damage ...

I don't think there's any secret to it at all. The font is proportional and so it's important to use wide characters. To produce this screenshot I simply entered as many G in Steam settings as was possible. There are probably wider characters. Indeed, the letter W extends off-screen without having to mouseover the name.

Its 'realistic' to play with any gun. An LMG is a very 'well rounded' gun. If your having problems pulling it up in time use a slight of hand/ steady aim combination. You can begin to shoot from the hip while pulling your gun up. Most of this game is recognizing the strengths of your gun and sticking to areas that utilize it! For example, if you use an ...

I wasn't able to find an 'official answer' but there were a number of sources that said only the primary affects your speed.

Major Nelson posted a video on Twitter last week, that gives a high level overview of the plot of previous two Modern Warfare games. That should get you up to speed on the events prior to Modern Warfare 3.

No, Modern Warfare 2 is still a supported multiplayer game. I'm guessing you had some type of network issue or encountered some sort of bug. Modern Warfare 2 is still among the top 10 multiplayer PC games on Steam at the moment, going by the Steam Game Stats - today its peak players was double that of Black Ops, but nowhere near the amount of players of ...

Use the pistol you start with and the Deagle. Line up your shots so one bullet takes out two targets (possible 3 or so times). Switch to the other pistol instead of reloading.

Kill / Death ratio isn't that important really. For example, mine is about 0.7, but I regularly top the scoreboard. Just focus on getting a weapon / perk setup that works for your play-style and have fun with that.
