What is SPM Score per minute
Score per minute is a newer feature to the Call of Duty games in which it highlights your effectiveness in games. This is what most clans, and teams, and people consider the new KD Ratio. This is because anyone could potentially have a good kill to death ratio simply by camping. BUT to have a good score per minute you need to actually be active on your team, help your team, and not camp. You essentially must be good at the game modes you play. Good score per minutes are usually based on anything above 200.. Anything above 200 means you are on good progress to build your stats, and make the most out of your gameplay. When you are playing you should do a number of things to increase your score within the game to make the best score per minute possible.
What Game modes to play..
Typically the best game modes to play are objective based games. This is preventing campers, and will give you more than just kills as a way to earn points. Typically core is better than hardcore, but my team only plays hardcore capture the flag typically and we maintain a good score per minute. With that being said, we also play nuketown, and similar game modes which really allows for one to have a high score per minute. This will typically allow for people to boost their numbers higher and the games are usually short.
When choosing a game mode, choose one that will allow you to use your strengths. Also remember that camping will usually KILL your score per minute, and allow other people to have a significantly higher score per minute than you.
This is and will always be a big part of any success guide I write. These are extremely crucial as well to have a high score per minute. When you throw an EMP Grenade for any equipment it takes out you receive 50 points, which on objective games can usually mean 100+ points between betty's and shock charges on the objective point. Not to mention you get 50 points for an assist for every player it hits, which in some game modes like kill confirmed is the same points you get for getting a kill. AND finally you get 125 points for every score streak you take out with an EMP grenade. This also provides good use.. Essentially you can have more points from just your EMP grenades than kills and objectives in a game. This will greatly increase your SPM.
Guns to use..
When you are trying to raise your score per minute the best thing to do is use your best guns. Although this may be tough if a LMG gun or sniper rifle is your best gun, but whatever gets your kills is the best gun to use. I suggest using a sub machine gun or assault rifle. Solely for the mobility. This will allow you to move a lot, and to have the best success when you are playing the game. When you are choosing the gun, also choose the right attachments for the game mode.. For instance in hardcore I may do a sub machine gun with a laser and silencer, but in core will use FMJ's and a silencer. Those allow me the best success when I am trying to play either game mode.
Strategy to follow.
The best strategy I can usually suggest is sneaking into their area to get the objective, and getting as many kills as possible. FOR INSTANCE. On capture the flag, I will usually grab the flag, stay in their spawn, and take as many out as possible before running back with the flag. I can usually get a stealth chopper or better each time I run the flag back. Overall your goal should be to get kills near objectives. Unless you are playing team deathmatch, there is always something your team is trying to achieve, and those who are attempting that get rewarded with more points. And since the score per minute is your total score for that game divided by the time, then you want to max out your points each game. This means you should always be around objectives helping your team get that win.
The most important thing to remember is practice. Practice makes perfect and over time you will notice that you get better, learn the spawns and secrets, and allow you to do better each game. Over time this will make you a better teammate, better player, and have more fun. But overall don't stress out to much because your stats can be reset at any time once you get good, and you will be able to reset those stats that are so important to you.

So to raise your score per minute remember to throw EMP grenades, get the objective, be in their area, use an effective gun, and have fun. Remember this is just a game, and at any time you can reset your stats with a prestige token, and be able to reset your stats. This will allow you to be the most effective, and get that ratio up that to some is more important than a win ratio or kd ratio.
