How to boost your accuracy FAST in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 ( MW3 )

Updated on May 30, 2012


In this guide i will teach you a trick that will allow you to boost your accuracy extremely fast, and simple. This is a strategy used when you need to boost it a few percent within a couple hours.. You will not need to change your strategy, or play differently, you just simply need to set up an extra class.

Also.. I am on the Xbox Live network, for those of you who continue to ask, my gamer tag is Agent Johnr. I tend to not add new members from here unless I play with you first, and I only play hardcore domination, or Infected, but either way if you see me on, feel free to send a shout out.


Well this hub is designed to teach you how to raise your Accuracy rating higher, in a very short amount of time. This is very simple to do, and will not take you very long to bring up.

So first thing, lets set up your class.. First off, you need a light machine gun. This is because of the large clips, and large capacity of ammunition, and will be useful as opposed to an assault rifle or sub machine gun.

Next you need to choose the game type. Now the MOST effective way to run this strategy is to play Hardcore Domination. Ill get to the reason of why it SHOULD be hardcore in a few minutes, but first lets look at domination. The game mode itself allows you to get a good amount of kills, and you should notice that more than 1 person can and usually does get escort airdrops, and such.

So now what is your main goal. You shoot the aircraft. While some say focusing more on training your aiming, and going for players. If you play like me, you are going more for the kill not for the accuracy in that matter, so when it does come down to raising my accuracy instead of changing my entire game style i would rather just do something fast that can increase it. Which is where the helicopter killing comes in. If you shoot at the helicopters then your accuracy does inf act go up. So with a light machine gun unloading a full clip would allow you to take out a helicopter, and playing domination will have multiple helicopters going up each game.

Now the reason that i said Hardcore. With hardcore game modes.... you can shoot your teammates killstreaks as well as the other teams. So this means that you are not only allow to take down the enemy helicopters, but you can unload into your team mates ones as well. This doubles the amount of helicopters you can aim at each game. Now i do not suggest doing this if you play with a full group of your friends, as this will probably make them pretty mad ( it is fun sometimes though) but if your bored and alone and need to raise your accuracy this is the perfect way to.

Keep in mind that typically in hardcore domination a lot of people use escort airdrops. This will be VERY VERY VERY effective for you as they can take a LOT of ammunition before they get taken down, therefore this will allow you to raise your accuracy even faster.

Well this is my short guide that will help you raise your accuracy quick and simple, and as i said in a mere couple hours you can raise your accuracy A LOT. Below i will share some of my other useful hubs

      Umm, as far as explosives I don't know, but i know within a match if you get a 2 for 1 kill, chances are throughout the match you will shoot your gun which will throw that figure off anyway.

      As far as the perfectionist etc.. it will not work for those, it will simply work for the statistic on the leaderboards.

      I believe the only 'accuracy' related things where shooting killstreaks doesn't work is the "Perfectionist," "Mach 5," "Dictator," and the equivalent assault rifle challenges. Lord knows I've emptied enough SMG, assault rifle, and LMG clips into ospreys. My younger brothers (they play Xbox, I play PC (ONLY)) have tried this too.

      Also, I'm not sure how collaterals and explosives work. Like does firing an XM25 straight up hurt your accuracy or does hitting 2 people with 1 shot help your accuracy more than hitting only 1 person?

      Well i was going to say, that the accuracy does not say that your are hitting people. You accuracy is a count of how many bullets you fire, as opposed to getting hit markers, so according to other call of duties, and thank you for double checking now this one, the hit markers do in fact go towards you accuracy.

      John, I tested this briefly last night. Shot at a few guys, but spent most of the time firing at aircraft. Even had an Osprey Gunner to fire a few LMG mags into. My accuracy DID increase. If hits on aircraft didn't count, there is NO way it would increase. I fired at least a few hundred rounds. Myth Busted. This works.

      I am trying to verify this as we speak. I know in all the past COD's shooting aircraft, helped your accuracy, and could count towards the using all bullets in a gun without missing. I know that i shoot all air craft down every game with my guns, and my accuracy, continues to stay the same or go up ( i've fired so many bullets through the 10 prestiges its hard to change it), but i will look into it further and double check.

      I believe shooting aircraft and other killstreaks (IMS, Assault Drones) don't count toward your accuracy rating. They actually hurt it. Accuracy is for shooting players only isn't it? It was this way in MW2 as well when I tried boosting my accuracy. I started shooting aircraft killstreaks in this game, and saw my accuracy actually go down quite drastically. I may be wrong, but can you verify this?
