Hi, first time call of duty player, need some help.

Call of Duty Ghosts Playstation 3

Hi, first time call of duty player, need some help.

I know im a little behind with the game, and the whole franchise, but i just recently picked up a copy of ghosts and finished the campaign, played against some bots and then gave shot at multiplayer, TDM, and needless to say i absolutely suck. In one game i died 14 times with no kills and another 15 times with one kill.

Here is basically how i play.

Game starts. I run around like a caveman trying to find people to kill, get picked off left right center by people i dont see coming, or campers, and the ones i do see from behind or so, i cant aim for shiz.

I aim, hit, miss, die. At point blank i cant even get into aiming mode before i am dead. I tried sensitivity 6 then 10 then 14 then 20 and still i cant aim for shiz.

I googled for best gun, so i tried the MSBS, its powerful when it hits but i cant hit anyone and before i can fire 3 more bursts i am dead.

I use only perks, no secondary or tacticals or lethals.

So can someone please gimme some advice on how to aim better and what guns and sensitivity to use or just, idk, gimme some tips to be better i guess.

I played squads offline alot but that doesn't compare to online, plus there is no lag in squads so yeah...

Thanks in advance.

Learn the maps, use a lower sensitivity for more precision, don't take the MSBS since it's a burst weapon and

your aim is not good enough to use it efficiently.

Try using SMGs like Vector, Bizon or Mtar - those are pretty strong atm.

Another thing you could do is sticking to higher prestige players and follow them around the map to see what they do

and how they play - plus they will be glad if you provide some cover and die less

no dont follow people around thats ridiculous, unless your all communicating efficiently. all that'll happen with that is a run and gunner will run up behind and take everybody out pissing the good players off because your running with them and probably giving away their position

Try 7 for sensitvity. Walk, don't run, around the outside parameter of the maps. Use amplify and dead silence if you can. Core will take a lot more bullets to kill people so keep that in mind. You can also use an ied strategically placed to get a few kills. Gun wise you'll have to see what works for you. I prefer the Vepr personally.

Alright, i'll try and help as much as i can. I would suggest you start by camping (As much as everyone will disagree with me). Try with an Assault Rifle with a suppressor and grip.Perk wise i would go with incog, slight of hand, fully loaded, and whatever else you feel would help. IED's are good for protecting your back well your looking the other way.

If you're going to Run-&-Gun, then i would suggest the Vector or the Mtar with Flash suppressor, suppressor, grip, or extended mags. Perk wise i would go for Sleight of hand, ready up, scavenger, quick draw and whatever else.

But in all actuality, it all depends on you.I started playing in Black Ops and sucked all the same, if not worse.If you're on PSN you can add me and i'll give you some tips and pointers and we can play a few tomorrow. I more then willing to help you out =)s

My PSN is LumpyPlug.

Have a good one and i hope this helps.

So here is my suggestion. And some people may disagree but to each there own. I started playing COD with MW3. Then got heavy into Black Ops 2 and with ghost. Everything that everyone above is saying is correct. Stick to the outside, learn the maps, walk not run, etc. Here is what you may want to try. Set up a class with an Assualt rifle. Remmington, SA-805, or AK-12. All great guns with good overall stats. You will just have to figure out which one you lilke best. Perks: Incog is a must due to all the sniping and camping in the game, Amplify is a must to start, don't need dead slilence as you should be moving most of the time while starting out. Blast shield is a must as well. To many explosives being thrown or laying around. And my last piece of advise, which I know sounds crazy,try play TDM in Hard Core. Yes. Hard Core. In core my K/D raito is a 1.52. In HC I have a 2.20 K/D. I feel it levels the playing field, first gun pulled, first bullet fired wins! As far as sensitivity goes on the controller goes, just starting out I would not go above a 7. I play at a 12 but I worked up to that. One of the best guys in my clan plays at a 5 and his K/D is a 2.67. Just do what works for you. It will take some time. Don't get frustrated and quit just keep playing. Remember going 4-0 is good and will help you K/D in the end. My clan is MLI and my PSN name is jmillerohio. You can add me if you'd like. Good gaming and shoot straight!

If you are AR inclined then I'd suggest the SC-2010.  Put a Red Dot sight on it and I like to use a silencer.  Try 8 for your sensitivity.  It's plenty fast enough without being too crazy but if you find that you are having trouble staying on target, lower your sensitivity until you find one that fits you.  Higher sensitivities will only make the problem worse.  You might find this crazy but a lot of pro players run somewhere between a sensitivity of 2 to 4.  Make sure that you use Focus as one of your perks.  Past that it's all about map knowledge and learning when to push in and when to wait for a second to see if somebody runs by.  That all comes with time in the game.

My guess is that the lower sensitivity helps them to stay on target easier despite being hyped up for the match.  I suppose they can get away with this because they are playing against other pro players which are going to use the exact same lines of sight and tactics that they will use.  So player positioning is less random in MLG than in normal pub lobbies and that affords them the luxury of easier pre-aiming and consequently reduces their need for turning speed.  I think back to a few videos from a MLG guy that has a habit of asking when he dies unexpectedly, "why are you there?  There's no reason for you to be there" when he's playing pubs.  The randomness of pub players has a lot to do with why we pub players always push to use the highest sensitivity that we can handle.  We need to be able to turn quickly.  Whereas the pros don't.
