    ghillie suit.... so hard to get....

    AZZERON

      I have been trying to get the ghillie suit achievement and am finding it very difficult to aim with any sniper or marksmen riffle... can someone suggest a good load out that I could use to achieve this???

       

      My aim is terrible!!! Can you just buy the suit???

          haha no you cant buy it, this one needs to be worked to earn.

           

          try the USR usually the most accurate (to me).

            Just camp like most ppl do. If you're not good w a sniper rifle it's going to be difficult.

              Use the USR, it does'nt kick as much with the chrome barrel

                It is not so tricky, pick a sniper you are comfortable with, add chrome lined, and play exclusively with that weapon set-up from now on. You will get much better at sniping during the process. You might die a lot to begin with, but you will get it quicker by grinding with the weapon set-up.  If your aim is being a problem then try shooting prone, just lie down in a good spot a shoot the oncoming traffic.

                  I'm less than 25 kills away for mine.  It's been a very long grind but I actually have gotten a lot better at sniping in the last 150 kills than all before.  As suggested, use the USR as it is quicker and easier to use.  I run Overkill a lot and use my sniper when the opportunity arrives.  Try to avoid holding your breath (depressing left stick) unless you have a target that is not moving.  This will help you acquire and move with the target.  Focus, Ready Up, and Quickdraw also help with quick target acquisition.  I almost never used a sniper in all previous COD games(<100 kills total) so can safely say that I am not that good.  This challenge has taught me a lot about sniper tactics and map awareness which helps in overall gameplay.  Good luck and shoot straight - unless it's me you're aiming at.

                    I heard people talking about ghillie suit was easier to get when ghosts came out bcoz chrome barrel challenge had only 250 kills to unlock ghillie suit. After update it was 850 kills and much harder to get. No idea if this is true coz i didnt snipe at all in beginning. It takes about 1 week to get ghillie suit

                        its always been 850, the concealed cobra was the one that takes 250 with the variable zoom. It was more difficult in the beginning because you had to have had the challenge unlocked.

                        As others have mentioned the USR with the Chrome barrel is good.  If you're having trouble aiming you need to consider why you are having trouble.  Is it because you can't see your opponent (thermal scope could help) or is it the zoom level that's throwing you off (variable zoom scope for this).  Whichever it is you can add a scope to help with this.  The thermal will help you see people quickly but you have to deal with the glowing fuzziness that makes them seem larger than they are and that can cause you to miss.  The variable zoom is great when seeing them isn't the problem but rather losing sight of them while you zoom in is the problem.  Having that lower starting magnification can be quite handy.

                            I did finally switch to the USR and actually did 5 kills in a row while sniping.... after that the other team made it a point to hunt me down.... eve with off the grid they kept on finding me.... seemed odd.

                                not odd, its called revenge spawn system.... people you kill in this game "tend" to spawn near you, and since you recently killed them they more or less know where you are...hence why they are coming after you...

                                  I've pretty much quit even running Off the Grid.  Even during clan wars I just don't get enough value out it generally to be worth the 3 points.  Sure if the other team is spamming SAT COMs then its a good perk to have but if all they have down is 1 or 2 at a time I find that I do just as well without it.  If I was going to spend 3 points on a perk for a sniper rifle I'd use Incognito.

                                It needed to be harder to get since you can use it with any weapon.

                                  I got mine easily with an ACOG on the Lynx. Perfect for the small maps.

                                    I use the USR

                                     

                                    I have two set ups with the USR, the one used for the suit had 3 attachments; Chrome Barrel, FMJ / Armour piercing and Variable Zoom   I also used Dead eye as I don't like hit markers with any weapon that says its deadly from the knee or waist upward... I try to keep it to head shots anyway, unless I have a CQC and have to quick scope faster than I'd like to.

                                     

                                    I advise you to get in a private lobby and try out all snipers with friends or even try it on squads, find which sniper works out best for you. I hate the chrome barrel anyway because it causes a lot of kick and that throws my next shot off, if there are a few people rushing me. The USR minus the Chrome barrel has hardly any kick, in fact its a beautiful little sniper... will always love the Intervention (mw2) and the MSR (MW3) but I have found the USR very similar to them in many ways and I am not a great sniper by any stretch of the imagination but my aim is okay and I have had a fair bit of practice with quickscoping (The boyfriend & friends). Snipers do take some time to get use to because you will be at a slight disadvantage, you are not able to spray this weapon and you do have to be some what quicker than your opponent.

                                      I have to agree sir getting the Ghillie Suit is really hard, wish I could buy it.

                                      I'm not a Sniper I do like the Marksman Rifles thou.

                                      Kinda funny how some players work really hard and patiently to get the Ghillie Suit only to run around like Yeti's jolted on Red Bull.

                                      I thought snipers got the Ghillie Suit to blend in the environment, hide and be a sneaky little bugger.

                                        Free For All and USR sniper. Easy. Just play until you get it. That aim assist with the the magic lag bullets will help you get it.

                                          Agreed, though that is one of the 2 special characters to unlock. A class I recommend to use though to help would be this.

                                           

                                          Weapon: LL15 or USR (I recommend USR but both are practically the same)

                                           

                                          Attachments: Chrome Barrel, Extended Mags (If needed use the Thermal Sight instead of extended mags and replace Slight of Hand with scavenger)

                                           

                                          Secondary: None or any pistol besides PDW and Magnum is wanted

                                           

                                          Tactical: None

                                           

                                          Lethal: None

                                           

                                          Perks: Slight of Hand or Scavenger, Dead Silence if playing Aggressive or Amplify is Camping, Quick Draw, Focus, Take down is using pistol or ICU if not using one.

                                           

                                          Kill Streaks: Specialist: Sat Com, Ballistic Vest, and Night Owl or Radar Scrambler.

                                           

                                          That is my favorite camping/aggressive sniper class, hope it helps out!

                                            I think I can help you. Go into a private lobby, make a class with each sniper rifle, play a TDM match with bots, no friendly, maybe 5 or 6 enemy bots on recruit. 50-100 kills depending on time and patience. Set Radar Always On to yes, remember, you're feeling the snipers, not bot hunting. Just get a basic feel for the Snipers. I personally cannot stand to use any semi automatic sniper rifle, I don't get it but even my first shot seems to Always miss, but a bolt action is better to improve your aim as long as you keep it in your head that you have one chance, when you use a semi automatic you get it into your head I can just spam if I miss. But with a bolt action you are determined to hit the first shot, if you don't, you die. After determining which style of rifle you prefer, go through each of the types, bolt action or semi in another game, go with no bots and determine the better value of damage(Lynx/L115) or speed(VKS/USR) now the tricky thing is, you want to have the EXACT SAME class loadout, attachments, perks, killstreaks, lethals, tacticals, secondaries, everything, so as to not throw off the feeling. Now remember that the VKS has a built in suppressor, so yo can't actually get the ghillie suit with the VKS, so keep that in mind. Also keep in mind the unique characteristics of each, the Maverick A2 has the tracker scope, and a VERY unique look. The Urban Sniper Rifle (USR) has the trade off of less damage for more speed, and the awesome extra bullets on the side. The L115 is British, that's enough, and it's a later generation of the famed L96A1, yes these are mostly trivial, but it's basically a matter of speed vs damage and bolt vs semi auto. After you find your perfect sniper rifle play 4-5 matches with bots, however many you want. Friendly or otherwise. Just make some cannon fodder to practice your aim with. Hope his helped of you actually bothered to read the essay I've concocted.

                                              Couple things. Never camp with a sniper, whatever you read on the forums don't take into consideration. The general populace camps, uses triple attachments, lethals, etc, etc. I never camped to get my ghillie, I'm just good at sniping. Just like everything in life, it takes practice and dedication. A class I would recommend would be:

                                              primary: USR    

                                              no secondary

                                              no lethal, no tactical

                                              sleight of hand, quickdraw, dead silence, scavenger, marathon

                                                Play hardcore mode. One shot kills every time. Use focus, as it steadies your aim. I also used a silencer and thermal sights. I started averaging 20 kills a game half way through my 850 kills. It took me 4 nights of playing a few hours each night. Practice makes perfect.

                                                 

                                                My set up

                                                L115(it has less recoil with eat consecutive shot)

                                                Silencer & thermal sight

                                                No secondary

                                                I.E.D

                                                Blind Eye, Off the Grid, Incog, Fully loaded(I sometimes use focus instead)

                                                My kill streaks are,

                                                Battle Hind, Griffin & Helo Pilot

                                                My kill streaks aren't recommended while trying to get your ghillie suit due to the fact that you are taken from the regular game and put into the vehicles.

                                                I would use the support class and use the following

                                                Squad Mate, Ground Jammer and Oracle.

                                                You don't want to use things like Sat coms or vests due to the fact that when you place them, anyone with sit rep on can see them and will know your position.

                                                    Use the USR with quickdraw and don't FORCE it, by that I mean use it on mainly large maps or maps with longer sight lines don't try to do it all at once, little chunks, don't use it in smaller maps like strikezone unless you can QS well.

                                                        If you are still having trouble with this there is one other option.  I got this unlocked about 2 weeks after ghost came out and I was just not a sniper back then. This method is very effective at netting a large amount of kills but your KD will suffer from it.

                                                         

                                                        The Class:

                                                        Primary Weapon: LYNX

                                                        Attachments: Acog, Chrome Barrel, Extended Clip

                                                        Secondary: Any handgun with 2 attachments

                                                        Perks: ready up, focus, stalker, extra attachment, agility

                                                         

                                                        Game Mode: Free for all

                                                         

                                                        Free for all tends to take place on the smaller maps in the game. Alternatively, ground war or kill comfirmed can work for this as well. You want to use the pistol to move quickly to a populated area of the map. After getting there, switch to the LYNX and ADS.  You want to get about 20 to 30 meters from your oppoonets and then strafe with the sniper rifle like a slow firing LMG.  The Lynx kicks hard up right so pull down left and just spam off the whole clip.  Given it's OHK area you can get quite a few kills just spraying down opponents with it this way.  However, there are going to be a lot of times that your life expectency with this class is less than one clip.  It took me about 8 hours of playing this way to unlock the ghilli suit.  I probably died 1500 times to get the needed 850 kills though.  It wasn't the most effective way to use the sniper rifles, but if you are not overly precise or hate camping it does get the job done.  I netted around 15 to 18 kills a game with this strategy.

                                                          Yeah it is pretty hard to get. And on top of that it doesn't even provide any camouflage like it used to in previous CODs.
