Tips for Overwatch on survival mode in spec ops, on Call Of Duty Modern warfare 3 learn how to get far! ( MW3 )

Updated on May 10, 2012


This guide/hub will teach you the tips and strategies that you can and should use to get to high levels on the map Overwatch for survival mode on Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3.

PLEASE NOTE ::: Below is a guide for general strategies for all survival maps that i suggest you read prior to the rest of this hub. I will reference and not going into great detail on the things you should use. But if you read the guide i give full reasons of why you should use each item.

The Map

Okay, so here is the legend for the map picture down below.

I initially had the boxes backwards, but is now fixed thanks to medic4army

The yellow G - This is your guns and ammo box, and where all your weapons will be

The yellow W+A - This is the grenades box. This is where the grenades, turrets, and all the other necessities are.

The Yellow KS+P - This is your kill streaks and perks box.

The orange X's - This is turret placement.

The Red and Blue X - This will be your player placement.

The Strategy

Okay So as most of my strategies are, this one is pretty straight forward. Remember the necessities, you should ALWAYS have self revive, and you should keep well stocked of you ammo, grenades, and all your perks. If you are level 50 try to get the Sleight of hand AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This is very crucial for later rounds especially if you are using the dual light machine guns like I suggest in the guide i linked above. I think that Quick Reload is extremely crucial.

Now that the basics are down, now your strategy for this map. Basically the Red x should watch the doorway he is closest to, while the blue x covers the turrets ( orange X's), and this should get you pretty far. Either player can play either role, and you will both get a good amount of action.

On juggernaut rounds, or if you start to get bogged down just run out the doorway and make a loop around the map. This map is perfect for making loops, and this will allow you to take out enemy troops, while making your way to each crate, or back to the camping spot.

Remember to try to take out helicopters first, this is an element that can make or break good or bad teams if they forget to shoot the helicopters first. This is what will allow you to truly get to much higher levels.


This strategy is for solo play only!!!

I guess I will add a strategy for solo play as well, so I don't have to write another guide, and re add the picture.

When I play this on solo, I FIND that the best strategy is a runner strategy. This means you will constantly be running in a big circle around the map. This is a very easy strategy to do, and get really far using. As long as you keep making turns and not getting hit by bullets, and keeping your self revive maintained then you should have no problem getting far.

On this strategy you are going to need slight of hand, and preferably two light machine guns. This will allow you to take your play much further, and will allow you to get much further.

You should also be trying to take the helicopters out first when playing on solo as this will make your gameplay much easier throughout the game.
