Modern Warfare 3: Gaming Tips That Will Make You An Elite Player!

Updated on July 11, 2013

Modern Warfare is back!

Becoming one of the most anticipated games of this year, Modern Warfare is back with the third one in its series; however this is officially the eighth addition to the Call of Duty series. Whilst many players have complained that this game is simply just a bit of Modern Warfare, and Modern Warfare 2 put together, I would have to disagree as this game completely blew me away... So after much research, as well as first-hand experience, here are some great tips for you to implement in your gaming strategy!

Gaming Tip One.

The first thing you should always do before even joining a Modern Warfare 3 match, is to prepare an awesome class for you to play with. I strongly recommend that you choose a personally preferred weapon, although if you're new to the game the photo to the right shows a really good option! Make sure that with every class that you have, it has the "Sleight of Hand" perk, as well as the "Hardline" perk. These two will not only make your game much easier, but also you will level up faster too!

Gaming Tip 2.

The second tip that I think is an absolute must when playing this game, revolves around not running around like a mad-man at any time... It's amazing how many people you see just sprinting everywhere, but with all that speed and no cover to hide behind, they are easily shot by the enemy. Unless they have super-fast reflexes of course, and then those players will get killed by kill-streaks. The best strategy for playing Modern Warfare 3 is to keep a good pace of getting around the maps, but always take a route where there is a lot of cover for you. Otherwise you will most likely "rage quit" within minutes...

(It's strongly recommended to stick to the perimeter of the map, as then you can easily take cover and take down the enemies in the centre of the map.)

Gaming Tip 3.

Finally, my last gaming tip for you will be to choose a game-type that you are good at, or are better at than all the rest. If you find yourself often being killed by the enemy, maybe Search and Destroy wouldn't be for you, but something like Team Deathmatch would be. You've got to think about this quite carefully, as while you do get 500 points for a kill in Search and Destroy, if you are constantly dying, then go for the 100 points Team Deathmatch offers you instead. This is essential for quick levelling up, and overall enhanced enjoyment of the game.

As a little side tip for all players new and more experienced to this game, try to make sure that you complete as many challenges as you can! If you get over 500 kills with a weapon you earn 10,000 experience, on top of all the kill experience you got with it too. This is a great way to rank up super quickly, but once you achieve that challenge, simply move onto the next weapon of choice. Otherwise you will no longer be getting extra experience for that gun.

Having fun tip 1: Never camp in a MW3 game for more than a minute or so... This kind of game-play can be extremely boring, and will result in you putting down the game. trust me whilst you might get more kills by camping, it is one of the worst things you can do in terms of having fun.
