Tactics Run and gun is about one thing - traversing the most often-traveled areas of a map quickly (hot zones), to encounter and ideally dispatch as many targets as possible. If this is not your style (it is most people's), you best course of action is to play directly against this behavior - effectively, play anti-run and gun. The first key element to ...

I've been doing quite a bit of research on this topic (reading FAQs, watching replays, and consulting with others) in the last few weeks, and I think I can put together a pretty good strategic overview at this point. Know Your Role In CoD multiplayer games, you are generally doing one of three things: Defending - You have an established position and you ...

Take your time It's slightly heading towards being a camper, but take your time. You don't need to run all the time, only run at times where you know you are very unlikely to be shot or can do anything about it if you are. It's a little bit frustrating, but then balance that with having to respawn. For example, stairwells - no point walking slowly up them ...

Focus on what you're good at! If you are decent with most guns breadth is a great way to gain some quick levels. Otherwise, use you're favorite gun and mop up the competition. Ranking up like a bad *** Gun Challenges Its also worth noting that more kills trumps completing challenges almost every time. What I mean by this is don't spend your time on a ...

The easiest ways to kill people wielding riot shields (not including using kill streak rewards) are to stick them with semtex, shoot them in the feet, or throw a grenade behind them (hopefully right under them if possible). Another way is to flash them or use a concussion grenade (I prefer concussion, because they physically can't turn to face you, whereas ...

I wondered this same thing for the longest time but I figured out the answer. You have 100.3% because on the level "Mind the Gap" there are 3 pieces of intel even though it only says there is 2. So since you found the 3rd one it counts it as .3% since it is not registered in the game. If you don't grab that one though you won't get the collect all 46 pieces ...

It is a "secret" killstreak (25, excluding strike package kills, or 24 with Hardline) that's not bound to a specific strike package. It is similar to the Tactical Nuke in Modern Warfare 2 — using it triggers a countdown, and a bomb drops. However, unlike the Nuke, it "only" kills the entire enemy team (as opposed to all players) and disables their ...

I know of three ways: 9-Bang (Flashbang) or concussion grenade them straight in the face if you have Blast Shield and run into their sides or back, and then either put a knife or a bullet or two into them. If they are in a confined space, then first throw the flash/concussion, then rush in. If they are running, it means they are standing, shoot them at ...

MW3 will again be using Valve's anti-cheat system VAC. The inclusion of dedicated servers in MW3 should allow for a better implementation than was done for MW2. VAC is designed to use a delayed banning system so that cheaters can't tell which cheat caused them to be banned. Due to this it is expected to be used in addition to server administrators to ...

I had the same problem, and I really have no idea why it happens or how to fix it. I have, however, found a workaround. I tend to just do this from the get-go instead of actually using the setup, because of weird issues like this. Don't run the disc setup; instead, activate your CD key manually, and abort the actual installation process. Open the backup ...

Double XP will cause your "Player Level" (Your actual level) to progress at twice the normal rate, which will cause you to unlock new guns and perks at twice the normal rate (while it's active) Double Weapon XP will cause your "Weapon Levels" (the level noted individually for every weapon) to progress at twice the normal rate, which will cause you to unlock ...

Even with Juggernaut players are still very vulnerable to headshots (due to the damage multiplier). Most headshots 'overkill' a player so you never really realize how much more damage they actually do. To deal with a juggernaut: crouch behind a box, wait for them to walk by and stick a semtex to them, knife them, or (the most reliable) repeatedly shoot ...

You can unlock any type of item (primary, secondary, equipment, perk, death streak) with a prestige token and it will stay unlocked for your entire MW3 prestige career You will need to re-earn the pro version of the perk that you chose to unlocked with your prestige token. All items (challenges, attachments, weapon level, weapon proficiency and camo) reset ...

Assassin only protects you from showing up to UAVs and similar "radar" sourcing devices when you are not shooting. Only a silencer conceals you when shooting. You can see from this link: Makes you undetectable by UAV, thermal scopes, Heartbeat Sensors and Portable Radars. You can still show up on the radar if you fire a weapon that doesn't have a ...

Grenade launchers ('noob toobs'), sniper rifles, C4, and other explosives are all pretty useful, but what you need the most is time. If you can find a place where you can see them at a range, or you can glitch them into staying away from you, you'll survive a lot longer. I've killed quite a few juggernauts in co-op with a friend, and usually I'd be the ...

You can install it from the retail discs via this method. Log in to Steam and click on Library. Right-click on the game, select Delete local content, and confirm.

As you can see in the chart in my answer to this question, range and damage are intertwined. The silencer does reduce the range of the gun, and thus reduces the radius of "close range" damage. This means that you will likely notice that it takes more shots to kill targets, unless they are very close to you.

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): ...

MW3's new point streaking system means numerous actions now count toward your killstreak rewards; plants, defuses, captures, defends, kills, and even assists (with Hardline Pro) count now. Destroying killstreak rewards (helicopters, SAMs, turret guns, etc.) will count against your killstreaks, for every strike package. These do not count toward your actual ...

Keeping a group together, but reasonably well spread out helps to protect you from an experienced enemy team. Keep in visual range in order to be able to provide covering fire, and use your role strengths. If you are close together, you can lose 2 or 3 people before you can get to cover (the enemy can concentrate their fire and move rapidly from one target ...

There are actually several differences, almost too many to list, but I'll give it my best shot! Here's a brief rundown of the type of gameplay for each game. Battlefield 3 Large maps capable of 12vs12 matches (Xbox 360/PS3), or 32v32 (PC) Vehicle warfare consisting of boats, jets, tanks, and HMMWVs Four Classes to choose from (Recon, Support, Assault, ...

You receive one prestige token per time you rank up to level 80 (not 50) and then prestige. You can also get prestige tokens for other Call of Duty games that you've prestiged in, with one token per game being awarded to you. Source

Juiced is a Deathstreak Reward received when you've died four times in a row without a kill, (3 times with Hardline Pro). You run faster than if you'd just used Lightweight, and it occurs on every respawn until you kill someone. http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/Deathstreak http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/Juiced

One solution is to make a symbolic link (Windows only, similar to a shortcut) from your Steam folder on your SSD to your HDD. In this case, you would want to make a symbolic link from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ to S:\SteamLibrary\. Make sure that the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3\ does not ...

It does not - the three platforms (PC, Xbox360, and PS3) are all distinct, separated multiplayer platforms (PC servers, Xbox live, and PSN). This would require PSN and Xbox Live to interact via an agreement between Microsoft and Sony, which is unlikely given that they compete. Additionally, the PC version supports dedicated servers and official servers, ...

The more damage a gun (or class of guns) does, the more likely it is to be able to shoot through objects. That means that LMGs, assault rifles, and sniper rifles are better equipped to shoot through objects than shotguns, SMGs, machine pistols, or handguns. This doesn't apply to launchers, which inflict massive damage but are effectively useless for ...
