What are your bad COD Habits??

Modern Warfare 3 Forum

And there's another 2 issues I have, reloading constantly and sitting for 5 seconds waiting on that guy to come for you then you say, sod this, I'll go for him then he appears and kills you, another one I just thought of was checking the scoreboard too much.

I hate that i get a kill my instinct is to reload because my fear of running low on ammo and half way through my reload i catch an enemy out of the corner of my eye and i get killed

I reload at horrible times, although I've got better at it or switch to my secondary. And occasionally I just let all my situational awareness go out of the window and run around like an angry beheaded chicken.

Same as yours but add sprinting round corners and checking the uav to much!

UAV reliance and getting killed by the guy with Assassin - yup. 

I am learning to check it occasionally and really get a sense of where the enemies are rather than red dot chasing.

Reload seems to be a problem for most of us!  Not only the frequency/infrequency of reloading, but when your clip is spent, it's many times much more effective to switch to your secondary rather than reload - I need to do a better job at that. 

I see good players take out 3 guys with their primary, whip out their pistol for another 1-2 kills.  Hate being in that reload animation and thinking "shitaki I'm DEAD" as I see the guy come around the corner. 

Another one I just thought of.  When I run into a guy, I will usually shoot or backup and shoot, when a panic knife is the most effective method - if the other guy panic knifes and you shoot you will lose more often that not. 

I do play on tactical but I have a Scuff Controller so I should be able to knife well, just bad habit from when I played with a reg. controller on tactical, you can't panic knife effectively.

Mine used to be panic knifing at random times. I would grip the controller too tightly when shooting but end up trying to knife someone from the other side of the map so I changed to tactical layout then I used to dropshot EVERY gun fight, I couldn't help it. It was too stuck in my muscle memory but a few months ago I started playing bf3 and I would do it on that too but in bf3 if you do that you die as you stop firing so playing bf3 sorted that out and now I have a scuf controller so I can drop and panic knif at will.... Result!

My other one would be use of stuns, for example when capping a Dom flag I will throw stuns in one direction but I don't leave long enough between throws so I sometimes end up double stunning nothing but a plant pot.
