MOAB strategies

So there seems to be a lack of interesting topics here lately, so, tell me what your strategy is when you are going for a MOAB. What game type do you seem to have the most success in, favorite maps, what class setup do you use, party or not, etc. Discuss.

 

 

Oh and Ill start it off. After trying out different strategies for the better part of a week I got my first MOAB in a game of HC KC the other day. I was playing solo, and the class I used was:

AK 47 with red dot and kick

MP9 extended mags

 

claymore

stuns

 

Blind eye

Assassain pro

Stalker pro

 

Support with UAV and Ballistic vests only, no reward in the third slot.

 

Played on Arkaden and wasnt really even attempting to go for the MOAB, it was one of the first matches of the day for me, so I was just "warming up" so to speak. Late in the match when I got my fourth set of ballistic vests in one life I realized I was close and played extra careful to try to make sure I got it.

    i mix it up between SMG and AR. current setup:

     

    -PP90 with ext mags and silencer

    -semtex with portable radar

    -Specialist package: initial 3 being sleight of hand, hardline, stalker

     

    i play on domination and team deathmatch, and i rush like hell

    The ballistic vests on HC were a nice touch. Where did you find most of your kills? Outside the buildings or in the hallway near the escalators?

    • Re: MOAB strategies

      Ive found that the only way to consistently get long streaks on HC is to run ballistic vests for yourself and when the one you are wearing is used up, drop another set at your feet and carry on. Been on so many 15+ gun streaks since I started doing this.

       

      On Arkaden KC I try to stay in the area by A Dom. I ran between the bar, courtyard with crashed heli, and looking through the A Dom doorway. Going inside the mall area on HC is a death sentence IMO. Too many places for dark corner mcdoogles to hide, too many spawns around it.

        That's what I thought - inside is a mess. It's either a bunch of sloppy firefights or a camper's fest. Great job! If you post a video of it I'll definitely check it out!

          Its really not that impressive of a gameplay TBH. It was like a 6 min ordeal to get it done, although the end is rather interesting when I realize Im about to run out of time. I hit the 20 streak with about 1 min left in the match and had to go rambo mode to actually get the MOAB (I called it in with 12 secs left on the clock I think). Personally I saved it because I did feel accomplished to have survived that long and had that many kills, but I had to basically camp/patrol to get it done.

           

          If you're still interested though when I get it captured Ill send you a link.

    I get moabs in 2 game modes. #1 Sabotage. I usually camp the hell out of the enemey spawn and get Moabs. T95, Tac insertion, Scavanger, hardline, Marksman ( To weed out snipers camping in the spawn ). As for the other game mode. I usually get 1-2 moabs a night is  Infection. I have a spot on about every map. All depends on what weapon i am using. So far the only weapon i have not gotten a moab with is a sniper.

    • Re: MOAB strategies

      camp much? lol. but seriously, you should try to get a MOAB on a game type where you arent spawn trapping...jus saying.

        hey it is my $65.00 and i will play the way i choose. But if you need to know yes i have gotten them on KC, TDM and Domination.

        • Re: MOAB strategies

          lol i wasnt judging buddy. it's good you got yourself a MOAB, but your play style seems way too campy.

          • Re: MOAB strategies

            Guys guys c'mon. Everyone has their own playstyle. Thats not what this threads about. Lets all just get along alright?

          • Re: MOAB strategies

            No doubt and i agree with you 100% I am not a camper usually. I run and gun in TDM or KC. But when i play objective games i camp it up. i am always in a party of 6 and we never lose games. So instead of triple capping in domination, we will hold 2 flags and rake in the kills, As for sabotage i know what i do is wrong. But the sapwns are screwed in demolition in this game

            • Re: MOAB strategies

              lol you know, you actually provided me with a good thought. im going to try sabotage now

            • Re: MOAB strategies

              also, because i play solo it can be incredibly difficult getting MOABs. im always brought into games with the noobiest of noobs (argh).

                If you want a good tip on getting a moab and dont care what gam mode. You should really play infected. Camping is what you usually have to do anyway.

                 

                Here are some of my infected game tips to get a moab on.

                 

                Hardhat type 95. Stay up around Domination B. keep a sharp eye into the center of the map and towards domination *a*. Dont worry about your back as most behind you will be busy watching from the *c* area. Be sharp and accurate.

                 

                Bootleg type 95. hang in dom *a*. Stay in the corner looking toward the passage from the center and stay behind cover by the trash cans. I have gotten multiple Moabs here.

                 

                bakara FMG's. Camp the top of the building that says youth hostile. Stay behind the stairs and go to work.

                 

                Arkaden. Type 95 or Stryker. For type 95 stay behind the stand at burger town. Just watch for random knives from the top. For the stryker. Camp and patrol the area in front of burger town ( same can work for the FMG's as well.

                 

                Dome is tough but if you have a friend watching your back and the other entrance to the top of the dome. You can get a Moab by lying down and covering the stairs in any weapon mode.FMG's and PP90 is tough because you burn through ammo fast and you really cannot move to collect baggies.

                 

                I have never gotten a Moab on seatown, Carbon, resistance or the snowy map.

    I dont play HC so i cant say what to do on it but my setup works well for core and ever since i put impact on im killing people alot easier between 4-8 bullets with the acrand shooting through walls is so much fun Im ranked 8th for bullet pen kills on xbox accolades lol

  • Re: MOAB strategies

    I just got one on mission. Using specialist and a silenced mk14. Rushed a bit then patroled. People kept rushing me.

     

    I'm editing the video now. It will be on my YouTube channel soon. www.YouTube.com/GNinja2006

    • Re: MOAB strategies

      ive gotten 3 moabs believe it or not all 3 came by way of ksg damage c4, emp grenade, blind eye , quick draw, dead silence using specialist 1st perk assaison, 2nd perk hardline , 3 perk steady aim     stinger secondary

      • Re: MOAB strategies

        I've gotten quite a few, maybe more by accident then most, but I can pretty much guarantee one on Outpost playing infected w/ the pp90m1. I roam around while the survivors still out number the infected and get to 8 before I start to work my way back to the hanger where I usually have 11-13. After that it's pretty much let them funnel into you (much easier if they come through the small door).
