What is HardCore Search and Destroy

Hardcore search and destroy is a game mode where there are two teams. One team focuses on planting a bomb at location A, or B, and the other team is trying to defend these two positions.

If the team who is planting the bomb gets it planted, then they must defend that location for 30 seconds from the other team to win that round.

This is a game where you get more points in a game for each kill, and bomb plant, and this will allow you to rank up faster. This is also a game mode that requires a decent amount of skill as you need to be careful to fight the enemy, but not get killed first. IF you do die, you must wait until the next round before you will respawn.

Strategies.

So there are a few strategies for this game mode. First off you have the run and gunners who will focus on running, and gunning. These people usually focusing on rushing to the enemies spawn, and killing as many players on the enemy team as possible. This is an effective strategy if you are a quick shot, and you are able to kill quickly, and fast on the trigger. This is not a strategy for those who have trouble playing the game.

The camper. This can be done in two ways. First off you can camp in the spawn. This will allow you to essentially sit in the spawn and wait for the enemy to come to you. This is very effective if you are trying to kill the enemy players, and end the round without them planting the bomb, or hoping that they are using a run and gun strategy and will come to the spawn for you. The other camper strategy is that you will camp in a designated location throughout the map. Usually this will allow you to camp the bomb area, or to camp someone in the map, and take out the enemy as they run through the map.

Explosive artist. This will first off have you play a C4 on each bomb. This is effective when you are going to camp the other bomb. Typically it gives the enemy away if they see the C4 and shoot it, or when they plant it you explode the C4, and take the enemy out. This is extremely effective. Typically this person also uses the grenade launcher to take out the base or area of where the bomb was planted. This is fairly effective, and will allow you to take the enemy out effectively and easily.

Weapons

There are a variety of weapons that you can use on this game mode, but it being hardcore you don't need to use weapons that have a strong bullet power. For instance when you are using run and gun method, most players will use a sub machine gun in order to be extremely effective, and take out the enemy.

Campers usually use snipers or assault rifles as they are more powerful and offer a one shot kill, but an assault rifle will also allow you to take your time, and move around the map if need be. None the less you need to be smart when you are choosing your weapon that way it is the most effective that it can be.

Usually the best way for you to succeed in this game mode is choosing between a sub machine gun or assault rifle. Some people will show off and use other weapons, but then it simply falls down to luck as opposed to coming down to skill.

Summary

Remember that overall this game mode is meant to have fun. You are supposed to be having fun and ranking up slowly. This is why Treyarch is only making 10 prestiges and making them easy to accomplish being 55 levels. This is to help you progress quicker through the game, and have less trouble doing so.

Also please feel free to drop a comment below of what your strategy is to playing search, and to let me know your favorite weapons on this game mode.

My play style is as follows:

1.) I sprint to a pre-designated sniping location, whip out my sniper rifle (An accurate one, rather than powerful [Hardcore game mode]), and wait for a few moments, watching popular sniping spots for enemy activity - My locations are often hidden, nearby popular spots, as few people check there inially - then start dropping the enemies.

2.) After that, or if no-one turned up, I cautiously move away from my location to another, or simply work my way around the map on the edges, to the enemy spawn, Pistol in hand (I'm quite deadly with a pistol - Just ask the countless fools who underestimate me). Kill any and all campers/AFKs as quickly and quietly as possible to avoid attention.

3.) Provide overwatch with sniper for team members, kill enemies and watch bomb locations (Defending or Targeting), all from the enemy's sideof the map. I will plant bomb too, If I have it, and defuse likewise.

SUMMARY

I snipe, but don't camp much unless I have a good killzone and stupid opponents. Then I rush cautiously (Is that even possible?) before sitting in the enemies sniping spots and causing havoc to said enemies.

Was that a little long winded? If so, sorry - that was why I did the summary.

I use an mp7 with a suppressor so i can silently sneak up on popular spots and a dual band crossbow because the explosion can kill them alone or just stick them it work very effectively if im watching a bomb from a distance and think they are planting/camping i shoot my crossbow near there and stop them:) I usually get many mad players when i kill;)

I really just snipe on HCSND.I mean I am good at using it.It is a good way to camp and get a certain spot where you can see them planting.Also I go in with a friend that way we both can see 1 bomb.

Thanks for the tips John. I prefer to use the msmc for the run and gun strategy with a secondary of a knife so I can rush the enemy spawn for multiple kills. #THANKS
