Best tips, tricks, and strategies for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer mode
1. Find your suitable sensitivity
Finding the most suitable sensitivity is the most important thing to do at the beginning of the game. Sensitivity has a great impact on your performance in the game. So before you start to play matches, make sure to visit settings and tweak your sensitivity a bit to find the perfect sensitivity for yourself. Visit the firing range to try out your new sensitivity with your most used guns.
2. Use perks and field upgrades
Perks and field upgrades are one of the most important parts of the gameplay of Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer mode. Perks give the players various kinds of passive abilities when equipped. Field upgrades are also tactical equipment or gadgets that can help the players massively on the battlefield.
The tactical camera is one of the most useful field upgrades of the game. Players can set up the tactical camera manually to keep their eye on places where the enemies might camp or attack from. The tactical camera helps the players monitor the area without getting noticed by the enemies.
3. Learn slide cancel and bunny hopping
Movement is one of the key factors for winning more matches in Call of Duty. The infamous slide cancel movement has always been the best movement in Modern Warfare, despite the amount of debate and controversies around it. Bunny hopping is another movement skill where players can move and peek at corners while jumping. This makes it harder for the enemies to aim at you and gives you more time to react and return the fire.
4. Do not reload in the middle of a fight
This is one of the most common mistakes done by Call of Duty players. In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, developers have replaced the previously used reload cancellation mechanism with a newly introduced mechanism. The new mechanism is called Reload Checkpoint, where the reloads are divided into a few stages. If a player cancels the reload in one of these stages, he can resume the reload from that stage whenever he wants to reload the gun.
However, reloading the gun between a fight is a very silly mistake, as it might get you caught off-guard by the enemies. Always reload your gun when you are in a safe place and when there is no other enemy around.
5. Make the best use of the Weapon Platform and gunsmith system
Infinity Ward has brought major changes in the Weapon Platform system and gunsmith system in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Although, the gunsmith system is just as important as it was before in Modern Warfare. Players must make the best use of this Weapon Platform and gunsmith system to pick the best attachments for their guns.
