Instead of complaining, any tips from anyone who are succeeding?

So far Ghosts has been nothing but frustration for me.  Past CODs I've done well, always held a decent KD...1.4 or above since MW2.  Even if I struggle at the start I get better, and when I say at first its usually just the first day or so.  Not the case with Ghosts.  3rd day in and I just haven't gotten any better or see no progression.  The maps certainly have alot to do with it, I do like to run and gun but the size, levels(so many ups-downs/buildings, etc), lack of a focal point have my head on a swivel, and not in a good way...I have no idea usually whats going on.  The general bad spawns are there, losing in gunfights you think you won, dying seemingly very quickly, so on and so on.  You get over that eventually.  I haven't unlocked to much stuff yet(I'm at level 16), just trying to save some points for whatever reason.

So if you're succeeding at Ghosts, got any tips??

Agreed. slow down a bit and learn the Maps. I have been trying to learn one part of a map at a time. I will stay in one area of the map until I learn where the enemy comes from and how they act in certain area as far as camping, sniping, run and gun, Etc .

I still suck but as I learn this I SHOULD get better. LOL

This. Take your time, rushing will get your head blown off. Learn the maps piece by piece.

I'd like to offer some magical advice but unfortunately, I've only got two evenings worth of playtime in and each one gave me a different grouping of maps.  So outside of a few of them that I have played a couple of times, I'm about as lost as you can get with regards to maps.  However, that will probably change by the end of the week.  For now the only thing that I can tell you is that staying in one place too long will get you killed but so will running around too much.  If you are going to push hard, stay to the edges of the map.  This especially helps to cut down on the number of deaths that you will take due to enemies hanging out in obscure rooms for who knows what reason.  Always be aware of what cover is nearby and be ready to dash behind it quickly.  Lastly, avoid long lines of sight unless you are equipped with a long range weapon.  Ok one more lastly, the Focus perk is a big help and now that choppers are starting to hit the skies you should find a way to work Blind Eye into one of your classes.

i would concur with these, blind eye keeps you from been seen by the oracle system and focus with the grip helps with you shootouts where you don't flinch as much when shot to where if forces you to shoot all over the place...

Get a headset and use awareness. Massively overpowered!!!

As soon as you have the coin, get the MSBS assault rifle. It's a burst gun, but it's absolutely deadly!!

All of this. I don't even have headsets and I can track enemy footsteps without having to turn the volume up loud so I can only imagine the effectiveness of this with headsets. I have even reincorporated crouch walking back into my gameplay lol.

i took marathon off of all of my classes... i will use some type of ghost once unlocked to counter all of the "seeing my body form through walls" and my dot showing up on the radar.  as of now, i'm positve, but it's not great by any means.  i've slowed down, stopped running and when i spawn, i look for a great place to set up camp, usually close to a flag my team has captured... if you wait just long enough, eventually people just run right in front of you, or if you're lucky, they'll even spawn right in front of you.
