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 ...

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.

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 ...

12 Throwing knife hits will destroy an attack helicopter. Attack helicopters have 1500 health and throwing knives in MW3 multiplayer do 135 damage. 1500/135= ~11.1 but you will need 12 throwing knives to actually kill it.

Camping is a pretty powerful strategy in CoD multiplayer, and it's not just a problem in Demolition, although it is arguably worse there than in most modes once you've taken out one bomb site. The problem with breaking a solid camping strategy is that it generally only takes limited cooperation between a couple of players to set up a good camp, but it takes ...

Other than exploits, the only colored clan tag I am aware of is the one that is a benefit to clans enrolled in the Call of Duty Elite service. Clans on Elite earn experiences similar to what you earn as an individual, by completing periodic "clan challenges". A full list of Clan prestige benefits for each level is here. As you can see, level 10 unlocks a "...

Currently there are very few ways of increasing your clan rank. Clan rank goes up by accumulating clan XP. You can get clan XP by adding people to your clan who have "Founder Status" - this means people who joined the for-pay version of Elite right around the Modern Warfare 3 launch. Since most of these people are in clans already, and it's a one-time ...

When I play survival, I tend to "live off the land" and take weapons off of dead enemy soldiers instead of buying weapons at the shop. In Resistance in particular, it's pretty easy to set up shop in the center house, like I explained here: What is best sniper position on Resistance in Spec Ops: Survival mode? Remember that you can also carry two primary ...

I would say that the answer to this depends on how sensitive you are to spoilers. As has been noted, the survival mode is just the multiplayer maps with infinite waves of increasingly difficult enemy forces. There's no plot- or single-player-related spoilers to be had there. The mission mode draws its maps directly from the single player campaign, but the ...

I'm assuming by "progression" you're referring challenges completed. There are two "hidden" challenges (Weapon Veteran and Weapon Master - not to be confused with Weapon Mastery) for each weapon that are not revealed until you prestige at least once. These are the ones that unlock weapon titles and emblems, and require more kills and headshots (2500 kills ...

The riot shield is really a situational "weapon." If you're trying to hold a location, pairing it with something like Blast Shield can give you a significant advantage. Backing yourself into a corner and crouching down can give your allies (or you) more time to capture a point. As far as offensive capability, pair it with a gun that raises quickly (like ...

This is a tough one to answer, mainly because it depends heavily on your strategy other than choice of weapon. I find on survival maps the best spots are those that are within easy running distance of the armories, and which provide good cover from the AH-6 overwatch choppers. They should also be areas where enemies generally approach from only one ...

The only known way to reset your stats is to get to the maximum prestige and use a prestige token to reset yourself back to level 1. The stats are tracked centrally as part of the Call of Duty Elite service, so there's no way to mod your client to change them. Even if you could somehow break the system to change your stats, you'd probably end up running ...

They do use different game engines. Black Ops uses a modified IW3 engine (originally used in CoD4 and WaW), while MW3 uses the IW5 engine. One of the major differences (in multiplayer) - taken from here is that movement speed is determined by the currently equipped weapon in Black Ops, while it is determined by the primary weapon upon spawning in MW3. Black ...

Yes, I've found one other spot. On the map mission, there is a barrel at the edge of the wooden bridge. Jump on top of that and jump to the lower ground without touching the bridge. I took a few screen shots to demonstrate:

Short and simple: You'll have to start from scratch.

A short and simple answer: NO Every time you prestige you have to level up every weapon again. So if you had level 31 FN P90, after prestige it will be level 1. You can buy unlocks for weapons when you prestige so that you can use some particular weapon or grenade at the very beginning(for example create a class with an MSR at level 4).

Final Stand is a Death Streak perk. Instead of being killed by normal gun fire, you are knocked to the ground and can crawl around. If you survive long enough, you can stand back up. Final Stand happens once per life. If you get "knocked down" again, you die. Final Stand does not activate if you die from a headshot, explosion or fall damage.

I think Ian's answer is partially incorrect. I use EMP grenades frequently, and I'm a pretty good shot. I've thrown many at assault drones without ever killing one. What I recently found as a much better strategy is using a launcher. Launchers will lock on to assault drones and are often a one hit kill.

According to the Call of Duty wikia: Range proficiency is only available on submachine guns and shotguns. It increases the effectiveness of the range of a player's weapon by 25% (it increases damage drop distance by 25% for the weapon; for shotguns it also increases maximum range by 25%). The example they give using the USAS-12 shotgun is: USAS 12's ...

There are a few good, hard counters to the run-and-gun playstyle. A few I would recommend for you are: 1) Don't sprint It's in their name, run and gunners are almost always sprinting, and a simple fact of COD is that 9/10 times if two players of equal skill (and connection) come face-to-face, and one was sprinting, the non-sprinter will win the engagement. ...

Yes, there is an acceleration setting, it's in the line: seta cl_mouseAccel "0" in the config file, stored in: \Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 3\players2 (if you don't use Steam, the route will be different, of course) That didn't work for me, since it was already set to 0. This is what did the trick: With the game running, Task Manager -...

Use a stinger to lock him and take him down. A stinger missile is a one-shot-kill headshot to a Juggernaught.

To me, the singleplayer is useful for multiplayer as it lets you gauge the feel of the game; what movement feels like, how guns behave, what control setup works best for you, how the game engine and graphics feel. It's good for stuff like recognising what bits of scenery are easy to mistake for players, what sort of height of wall must be mantled and what ...

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 ...

At the lower levels, you're more likely to achieve bonuses like "killing spree" for killing a number of enemies without getting hit, or "rampage" for killing many enemies in quick succession. The enemies also go down easier. At the higher levels, you more than likely won't be getting as many bonus points, but the enemies are all worth more. However, the ...
