Some things you must know in the video game Modern Warfare
another year another Call of Duty and
this year’s game is pretty interesting
modern warfare is a throwback in more
ways than one
Sherman black ops 4 might have brought
back some boots on the ground after
World War 2 also kind of did that but
the game still had just scoping in the
blink of an eye and skating around the
maps at Olympic speeds this game
it ain’t like that if you’re a veteran
of the past few years a Call of Duty
it’s gonna take some adjusting
especially if you’re a newcomer all
together aiming-down-sights is slower
across the board movement speed is way
slower in general and the maps are more
congested and require you to learn them
rather than just having the homogeneous
structure of the previous games I don’t
even need to bring up ground war the
gameplay on its own is so different so
if you’re struggling just want a few
tips or where are you tearing your hair
out over campers keep on watching cuz
today we’re talking about 10 things that
call of duty modern warfare doesn’t tell
you there’s a lot to cover so let’s get
started off with number 10 in the past
few Call of Duty games multiplayer maps
were generally made up of three lanes so
where there were usually three main
through lines through the map left right
and center this game’s maps are closer
and designed to the maps of the original
modern warfare so they’re much more
complex you know with long alleys and
congested buildings the design between
maps is much less standard so knowing
every single map individually is
important here really important be
patient when learning each map you’re
gonna get killed
and it’s gonna be frustrating but just
accept it and take the time to fully
explore the map and understand each one
then you’ll be the one gunning down
people like a pro love it or hate it you
know it’s just different and if you want
to thrive you’re gonna have to adapt
over at number 9 footsteps also like in
previous Call of Duty games are very
loud and prominent here in modern
warfare in fact many say that using
footsteps attract enemies is way more
powerful in this game than in previous
games having a decent sound system or a
pair of headphones can greatly improve
your ability to detect enemies just pay
attention to what sound channel the
footsteps come from and make sure they
aren’t your allies by checking the radar
and then move in for the kill on the
other hand if you don’t want enemies to
notice your footsteps get the dead
silence field upgrade it’s one of the
last pieces of field equipment you want
and for good reason it’s it’s really
powerful you can only activate it for a
short period of time and at the moment a
lot of players feel it’s actually not
powerful enough and should just be a
perk but either way it’s your most
powerful weapon against people listening
for footsteps next at number 8
tactical sprint press the sprint button
twice it lasts a few seconds and you
move much faster than a regular sprint
it takes longer to 80s while it’s active
so just be cautious this is an awesome
little addition to multiplayer but you
need to be careful how you use it
don’t run headfirst into a firefight
with tactical sprint your 80s will be
way too slow to respond and you’ll just
get got instead use it to cross long
distances that you know are more likely
to be enemy free or to escape a
dangerous situation just remember if
you’re running away keep running don’t
throw it into one room and then attempt
to spin around and shoot you just won’t
be fast enough because of the 80s
penalty get far away and you’ll survive
to fight another day or just get killed
somewhere else that’s probably more
likely next over at number 7 in previous
Call of Duty games you were often given
the option to enable or disable gore
effects when starting the campaign in
this game with multiplayer at least on
our end and dismemberment and gore
effects were off by default you actually
have to open options menu and switch to
general tab and then find content
filters then dismemberment and gore
effects and turn that on if you’ll want
things to be more violent this option
isn’t shown to you when you first start
the game so you might not even realize
it’s there definitely just be aware of
it either way and you can turn it on and
off now next at number 6
turn off motion blur and film grain if
you find them annoying or if you want to
just have as much visibility as possible
in multiplayer now to do this go to the
main menu then options turn off world
motion blur weapon motion blur and film
green personally I mean I prefer these
options on I’m just more of a graphics
person but if you find them distracting
and that’s fair enough a lot of people
do it’s nice that you can very quickly
and easily get rid of those effects now
over at number 5
quick-draw mods have been severely
nerfed this time around scoping has been
slowed down across the board most cod
players are probably used to the really
fast 80s of like every other Call of
Duty in the last five years so prepare
yourself for a little adjusting
if you can try to up your sensitivity a
bit compared to last year’s black ops
for the ttk is much higher here so being
able to aim and shoot quickly is an
absolute necessity if you can point in
an enemy first you can kill them first
so if you’re serious about winning
online put it in the practice and turn
up that sensitivity oh and using a mouse
and keyboard is even easier this year
for consoles if you’re nasty so if
you’ve got that equipment you should
consider trying to use it now over at
number four as usual when a new Call of
Duty game drops people discover very
quickly what the best guns are now I’m
not gonna like rock the boat here this
time it seems like people are spot on
here pound for pound it seems like the
PKM is probably the best all-around gun
in the game ads of launch and slap on a
suppressor and you’ve got a PKM scout
that’ll tear through the enemy pretty
well the kilo 141 is another standout so
far seen by the community as one of the
top two your weapons along with the m4a1
in general it seems like precision
weapons are weaker this go-around unless
you’re playing ground war where distance
is king of course feel free to
experiment with whatever guns you want
but if you find yourself struggling
these three guns the PKM the kilo 141
and the m4a1 they’re all really powerful
and should help even the odds a little
bit especially if you’re struggling
newcomer over at number 3 real as a mode
for the campaign is actually fun and
interesting it’s in the settings no HUD
makes the game really pop and just in
general the graphics are stunning the
new mechanics mainly the mounting and
how it works actually make the game
perfectly playable in this mode as well
it’s actually not as hard as you would
think at first blush if you got a ps4
pro at Xbox 1x were a damn good PC this
feels like the way the campaign was
meant to be played and he can really
experience that new engine in all of its
glory now down to number two because
they ditched that three lane structure
for the multiplayer maps camping has
become a much more viable strategy for a
lot of players we’ve noticed I don’t
think I really need to describe how to
be the best camper just find a good
corner and sit there personally I don’t
think you should do that that’s not as
fun so we got some anti camper
strategies for your loadout you’ll want
anything that can flush your mouth
smoke flash bags explosives anything to
clear a room don’t run in blind if
you’re taken out by a camper try and
alternate route and don’t immediately
start sprinting right as you respawn
think about where the camper was and
what you can do to flank them stop me if
you’ve heard this stuff before but still
we’re filling you in one particular
sneaky trick is that you can toss
grenades through these wall fans so if a
camper is on the other side they’ll
never see it coming
now finally down to number one another
big beginner tip stop me if you’ve heard
this one but playing domination is one
of the best ways to rack up experience
in modern warfare multiplayer if you
want to level up faster killing enemies
gets you 100 XP and defending a control
point gets you a hundred on top of the
hundred you normally get for getting a
kill so every standard kill while
defending a control point and that’s you
200 it’s also the longest mode so really
there’s just like let’s downtime in
general if you want to be in game if not
domination then ground war is also an
excellent way to grind some experience
just jump in a tank and rack up kill
streaks to chain a ton of experience the
objective is obviously the name of the
game but don’t be afraid to also focus
on getting kills because that’s where
you get more XP your team might hate you
a little bit but if you want that sweet
XP that’s one of the best ways to get it
but really good luck out there these are
just some tips and some things the game
doesn’t quite tell you that we think you
guys should know about but of course you
know we’re not like 100% eSports experts

[Falcon] Call of Duty
Modern Warfare 2 is here.
And I am excited for how it continues
what was frankly a very
good reboot from 2019.
But there’s gonna be
stuff that it doesn’t say
and that’s what we’re
gonna cover right now.
Hi folks, it’s Falcon
and today on “Gameranx,”
10 things Call of Duty, Modern
Warfare 2 doesn’t tell you.
Starting off at number 10,
is the M4 still busted?
And let’s tell you about
the other best guns
in the game too.
The one thing everybody always
wants to know off the bat
with a multi-player
shooter, which guns are OP?
Now this is Call of Duty so
it’s especially important
because there’s a lot of guns here
and the quality is kind
of all over the map
with each of ’em.
For an all rounder, easy answer is the M4.
It’s a starting gun.
It’s the one everyone is going
to have at least one try at.
And this time around it’s
incredibly good actually.
The MP5 was the meta
in modern warfare 2019
but this time around
it’s all about the M4.
It’s an easy one to recommend to beginners
’cause it works well in
almost every situation.
If you want a gun that’s
making people really angry
right now, go with the SP-R.
This marksman rifle is a
beast in the right hands
especially if those hands
are holding a controller.
This year the aim assist
for console players
is really generous.
So a lot of keyboard and mouse players
are switching to controller,
like that’s how much the aim assist helps.
The SP-R can kill with one body shot.
So combine that with the aim assist
and you’ve got a really effective weapon.
There is a reason people
are all running around
with this thing right now.
SMGs on the other hand
have for the most part been nerfed
but they can still be pretty
effective in close quarters.
The MX9, this game’s version of the P 90
is especially strong in
close quarters fights.
The damage drop off on SMGs
is totally insane this year
so don’t bother trying to
shoot from any distance,
but close up, incredible.
Well, SMGs have mostly
been hurt this year.
There’s one gun type that
has really been buffed,
that’s the pistols.
Instead of taking six
shots to kill somebody
a lot of pistols, including the start one
can kill with two shots at close range.
The revolver called the Basilisk
is particularly powerful
even at long ranges.
If you really wanna enrage people
going akimbo with revolvers
with the snake shot ammo,
it’s just cruel.
This thing was a terror
in the last modern warfare
and it is just as dirty in this game.
And number nine is how
to unlock attachments.
One of the most confusing
changes to weapons
in modern warfare 2 is how
unlocking attachments now works.
I was gonna skip this
but there’s so many people who
are confused and frustrated
with the new system,
so we decided we would talk about it.
In previous entries,
attachments for guns were pretty simple.
You just leveled up your gun
and you unlocked stuff for it.
In this one it’s more complicated though.
Now many attachments
are shared between guns
and if you want to unlock ’em,
you have to have a certain
rank with that gun,
The easiest way to find out
what guns you need to rank up
and to what level is
by opening the gunsmith
and then scrolling to the
part you want to unlock.
You look for the green text
under the weapon description
and that’ll tell you what
weapon you need to rank up
to unlock that attachment.
Little more convoluted, isn’t it?
Now I do think it’s meant
to encourage players
to try out different weapons,
but it’s confusing for both
new and returning players.
Certain attachments even
require you to rank up weapons
in completely different categories.
Like, to get certain shotgun attachments,
you have to rank up SMGs
and I really just don’t understand that.
And number eight, while we’re on the topic
of ranking up weapons, what’s
the fastest way to do it?
So you’re gonna be
forced to rank up weapons
that you don’t want to use
with this new attachment unlock system.
So there’s some tips that seem to work
in terms of ranking them up faster.
Probably the easiest mode to
rank up weapons in is Invasion.
Like there’s a ton of targets,
a lot of ’em are easy to kill bots
and it all counts for weapon ranks.
So you’re free to go nuts
with whatever weapon you want
and you’re gonna get a good
amount of kills no matter what.
Another easy way to rank up
weapons is to play co-op.
Best map for people
who just want to get
a lot of kills quickly
is the defense one,
called Defender: Mt. Zaya.
When you just wanna rank up
and not worry a lot about other players,
defender’s the place to do it.
And number seven, there’s
a fairly easy trick
for abusing the score streak system too.
For new players, still
getting their feet wet,
it can be frustrating
how little you get to use the kill streak.
Sometimes you just wanna drop
a cruise missile on everyone.
So, what gives?
Yeah, I mean is it really so much to ask?
Well, there is a trick that you can use
to easily earn some streaks.
First, go in to kill streaks menu
and switch you over to score streaks,
then get some decoy
grenades and the supply perk
and the extra tactical perks
so you can carry three decoys at once
and equipment will recharge.
So now you just start
chucking decoy grenades.
You get 15 points
anytime anyone on the
enemy team hears them.
And if they get killed you get
115 points for a decoy kill.
As long as you play somewhat defensively
you’ll be rolling in points in no time
and can go buck wild with
kill streaks when you want.
The trick works best on
matched with control points
but the range of hearing
for each decoy grenade
is so wide that you’ll
almost always get a few hits
no matter where you throw it.
If all you wanna do is
build up your score streak
decoy grenade is a fantastic tool.
And number six, turn off texture streaming
if you have low bandwidth.
A lot of people complaining
like lag and other online
And this isn’t like a
hundred percent fixed
or anything like that, but
it can definitely help.
If you don’t have the fastest
internet speeds around
it’s probably a good idea to
turn off texture streaming.
This feature allows the
game to download textures
on the fly while playing the game
which can make the maps
look a little nicer.
But if you don’t have the network speeds
to support downloading and
playing at the same time,
it can have a pretty negative
effect on performance.
If you want the smoothest
multiplayer experience possible
just turn it off.
It’d be nice if they let you
pre-download all these files
instead of streaming them every time,
but at least you could
just stop it entirely.
I don’t know, it’s a weird thing
to eat up all that bandwidth every time.
Why not just store them
after the first time?
And number five, bunny
hopping has been nerfed.
In modern warfare 2019,
the meta was all about drop shotting
dolphin diving and bunny hopping.
And if you hated all that stuff
I got some pretty good good news for you.
But if you loved it,
maybe not the best news
’cause it’s all been nerfed into oblivion.
The new meta is a lot
simpler, that’s going around.
Pre-aiming was already important
but now it’s basically what you’ve got.
ADS speed when exiting a
sprint, it’s pretty brutal now.
You lose a huge amount of
acceleration when you jump
and slide canceling is just plain dead,
like it doesn’t work anymore.
Nearly all of the old movement
tricks have been killed
from the game.
That doesn’t stop people
from trying to do it,
especially corner jumping,
but it’s way less effective,
like versus somebody
who’s already pre-aiming
you’re just gonna lose every single time.
And number four,
the trick to getting
the gunless achievement.
There’s a couple campaign
achievements that challenge you
in the single player story mode.
Probably most of them
but I think there’s a few
things about the gunless one
that should use some clearing up.
You earn this achievement
by completing the level alone
without firing a single shot.
That sounds difficult and it is,
but there are a few
ways to make it easier.
The most important thing is
the wording on the achievement.
You can still kill enemies,
you just can’t fire a gun.
That means weapons like the throwing knife
and kind of surprisingly
the crossbow don’t count.
You can use both of these tools
and they make getting
through the level way easier.
The first throwing knife
you can get from a safe
after going through the
door with the dying guy.
The clue for the safe is on the calendar
and the code is 10 10 80.
Throwing knife, it is a beast.
It’s a one hit kill.
You can collect off the
dead body every single time.
So reuse it as many times as you like.
Second safe in the plaza right
after leaving the restaurant
containing the first one, is in the garage
and the code can be found
in a nearby computer.
The combination’s 37, 60, 80
and has one more throwing knife
and a crossbow with two bolts.
Like the knives, the
bolts are a one hit kill
and can be collected again after firing.
And they’re basically essential
for getting through the end of the map
without firing a shot.
If you get these two weapons
then getting the gunless
achievement becomes way easier.
And number three, battle
rifles do different damage
depending on their firing mode.
This one, I gotta give all the
credit to a Reddit username,
Tired of Pink, which let’s be serious,
if pink is an innuendo, what?
If it’s just the color, sure, I get it.
There’s a lot of pink out there.
But anyway, this guy put in the work
to discover that battle rifles,
which are normally pretty effective,
actually do different levels of damage
depending on if they’re
fired semi-auto or full-auto.
So switching between the firing modes
doesn’t just make you more
accurate with the lower fire rate
it actually affects how
much damage you’re doing.
Full auto is noticeably
weaker than semi-auto.
And actually sometimes it goes too far
as to take an extra shot
just to kill somebody.
The two most commonly
considered good battle rifles
the SO-14, then TAQ,
they can kill someone with three shots
to the torso on full-auto,
but only two on semi-auto.
These guns already have a
relatively low rate of fire.
So that one bullet can make
a pretty big difference.
If you’re gonna try to
main one of these guns
remember to swap between firing modes
’cause that can make a
really big difference.
And number two, a shotgun that
shoots like a sniper rifle.
Yeah, just switch to an
explosive slug shotgun.
If you wanna start
playing dirty, here’s how.
There’s no gun more
controversial than a shotgun.
And nobody can agree if it’s
overpowered or underpowered
because everyone’s working from
a different starting point.
But if you want something that’s
feeling pretty overpowered
right now, just try this weapon.
It’s the Bryson 800 shotgun
with a 12 gauge explosive ammo.
It’s literally an explosive
slug, which combined with
the already very, very
generous aim assist,
it turned your shotgun
into a kind of sniper
that does splash damage.
It can almost feel like cheating at times.
Like it’s just wrong to be
able to hit people accurately
from these kinds of ranges with a shotgun.
Yeah, it’s a slug, but
it just isn’t right.
there are some really
amazing inspect animations.
Like this is just a fun little thing
we thought we’d end on.
In game, you can inspect your weapons
by pressing I on the keyboard
or by holding left on the
D pad on a controller.
And while most of these
are just stock animations
but a few of ’em really
get some extra flare.
If you’ve got the revolver,
then instead of just looking at the gun,
you’ll do some fancy
pistol spinning tricks
which can look pretty damn cool
especially because the revolver
is actually pretty good.
So getting kills with it is pretty viable.
Another weapon that lets you
do fancy stuff is the knife.
For players who really like to show off,
there’s some pretty cool little animations
that don’t amount to much,
but you really look like
a badass when you do ’em.
And that’s all for today.
