I will be posting guides for online play, multiplayer game types, set ups for each game mode, zombie guides, campaign guides, info guides, and anything that you need to know going into Call of Duty Black Ops 2.

Before I get started, let me say, please feel free to ask questions below in the comments section..

Also you can ask question on my Gamer Tag on Xbox Live IF need be.. My gamer tag is MKS JohnR space between the two.

ALSO!!! - I am starting a new clan. If you are reading this feel free to message me on Xbox Live, or on Twitter. As of now I am only open to people on Xbox, but will be moving multi-platform in December/January. So please feel free to contact me with questions. Also I will have a Website specifically for the clan, and it will be pretty big.

The Kill Streaks

Okay, so before I get to the kill streaks let me say first off.. The kill streaks WILL NOT apply to all weapons. Some things will only apply to pistols, or some things may only apply to sniper rifles. So keep that in mind when reading.

Also I will be posting a guide with special attachments that will greatly help you get through the game best. Also which attachments will benefit you to the game modes, so keep in touch and check back or those weapons.

Weapons attachments

ACOG- Well this attachments has been in every Cal of Duty game. Basically this is a short distance scope that allows for quick access to the gun. Very effective at short to medium distance ranges.

Adjustable stock - This will essentially allow you to move around easier while you are in scope or while aiming.

Ballistic CPU - This will allow you to have less movement while in scope, or while aiming.

Dual Band - This is a night vision camera with a built in thermal scope.

Akimbo - This will allow you to equip two pistols at the same time.

Extended Clip - This will allow for a 50% increase in your magazine one your weapons. For instance if normally you carry 10 bullets, with extended mag you will carry 15 bullets.

Fast Mag - Well this has been known as dual mag on other games, but allows for switching mags every other clip to e twice as fast. This is pretty effective.

FMJ - This stands for full metal jackets, and will have deeper penetration on objects when shooting.

Fore Grip - This will have a significant effect on your weapon recoil.

Grenade launcher - Well this is your standard noob tube. Here you will find a weapon that allows for you to shoot a grenade, and take out those pesky weapons.

Hybrid Optic - This will allow you to switch between a red dot scope, and a ACOG scope.

Iron Sights - This will allow you to take the scope off of your sniper rifle. This is effective for you trick shooters out there, or those who are using a sniper rifle at closer ranges.

Laser sight - This is pretty cool, and will greatly increase your hip fire accuracy, but also will make you significantly more visible by the enemy.

Long Barrel - This will increase the range of your weapon.

Millimeter scanner - This is a pretty cool new feature. This will allow you to see enemies up to 25 meters..

Quickdraw - This will allow you to aim your gun faster.

Rapid Fire - This will increase the fire rate of your weapon by 20%

Reflex sight - This is your standard red dot scope on the gun.

Select Fire - Probably one of the best new features of the game. This allows you to switch from a burst fire to automatic fire. This is a coop new feature, and I plan on trying this a lot more during the progress of the game.

Suppressor - This has been in EVERY COD game. This will allow your muzzle fire to be invisible, the gun will be quieter and will not show up on the mini-map when firing.

Tactical Knife - This will allow you to carry a knife on your off hand and allow for faster melee attacks when using a pistol.

Target Finder - This will identify enemies and highlight them in red on your red dot. This is pretty effective.

Variable zoom - This scope will allow for you to zoom on a few levels when scoping. Pretty effective on sniper rifles, although i prefer the regular scope.


So overall this is your list of weapon attachments. They really added a whole bunch of new attachments, which is a very effective, cool addition to the game. I will be doing another guide that talks about which weapons are in fact the best.

Hey, I was screwing around with bots earlier, using an LSAT, and noticed something interesting. The magazine had its own ammo counter. Yes, I mean sort of how Dead Space displays ammo counts. On-screen, it shows up along the bottom of the screen, at approximately the center. Unfortunately, it moves off-screen when you ADS.

Yes that is my favorite feature of the LSAT.. Especially since I play only harcore (for the most part) that allows me to see the ammo left in the gun..

Well, just saw this video about the hybrid sight:

Sorry about posting ANOTHER link, but I'm not sure what to say about this one...

WOW that's interesting.. i just sent that out to my team.. I hope that will be fixes soon, although that will be very difficult to perform on a console controller.

Hey Johnrr631992.I am currently creating a website similar to yours.I wanted to ask if you would like me to setup a site for you.I would need a name for your site and a title for your pages.I can have it done in 3 days.

Wraith 4 years ago

I believe they have patched the Hybrid Sight thing, I tried doing that in a private match the other day with an M8A1 and ended up with an odd number of bullets left in my gun...lmao.

@TK Gaming.. I don't really need that as of now.. I currently own .. have 2 more sites in the work, and with Hubpages, and Youtube, I barely have any time to work on my other sites.. Maybe in the future I would be interested in something like that, but any other sites I start from here are going to be to move my writing from here to that site, and develop a better name for Johnrr631992.. But as of now this site works fine, and youtube isn't bad either.

@Wraith.. Yes I have noticed that it looks like it is hard to do that glitch. Although I only have seen a couple people attempt that within the game to be honest.. Like I was talking with my co-leader.. With the amount of effort it takes to do all that, it's just as easy in my opinion to use the an-94/skorpion/ or now peacekeeper.

Wraith 4 years ago

Another one to add to the list of funky attachments on certain guns... the select fire Vector. If you can pull the trigger fast enough, it shoots almost as fast as the Skorpion EVO. The Vector with select AND rapid fire shoots as fast as the Skorpion EVO with rapid fire (again, IF you can pull the trigger fast enough).

Yes I have seen the Vector vid, and that is interesting.. I have tried it myself, but my trigger finger was a little tired that night, and I didn't notice the speed, not to mention I haven't been a fan of the vector.. I use the peacekeeper now, but as far as other submachine guns go, once I got them all mastered I moved on..

Wraith 3 years ago

Personally, I'm not a big fan of select fire (well, at least on the fully auto weapons). I much prefer using fast mags, quickdraw, and laser sight (laser sight especially for the SMGs). That said, I haven't exactly leveled up many of my weapons enough to unlock it. XD

My personal favorite SMGs are the Vector and MP7, with fast mags and laser (Or quickdraw. I like being able to quickly shoot accurately at range...).

I can't stand select fire and NEVER use it, with the exception of the chicom, and the swat.. I feel that is a crucial attachment for those weapons, and can make them unstoppable under the right circumstances.

Wraith 3 years ago

Actually, after having used the SWAT-556 for a while, and having tried using select fire, I have to say. . . I don't like using select fire on it. I much prefer using the ACOG scope (Ranger Drop reticle), with either quickdraw grip, fast mags, or stock (usually quickdraw grip), and taking a TAC-45 (extended clips) or Five-Seven (long barrel). I will be honest though, I haven't really tried using the pistols with the tac knife or akimbo yet, I really like using long barrel though.

I found when using select fire, and a laser sight it was much easier for me to get that weapon gold.. Solely because the hip fire allowed for much easier close range headshots.

Wraith 3 years ago

I prefer using the SWAT almost as an exclusively long-ish (mid-range to long-range) weapon. I tried it with select fire, and the ROF felt ABSURDLY slow. It just seemed more manageable to me with burst fire at longer ranges. (Just how it seemed to me, all subjective...)

Yes it is subjective, also depends on you game mode, and play style.. Being on hardcore, I like the select fire, because as long as i can manage to hit them once chances are they are dead haha.. But it is all subjective..
