In this post we are going to look at the key skills that you need to become a better player in Call of Duty Black Ops 2. In actual fact a lot of the following tips you can use in ANY FPS and it will make you a much better player.
What you need to remember as well is that practice is key. But instead of just picking a random game mode and running around each map you should be making a conscious effort to watch the best players, the weapons they pick and the perks they are using.
Here are a few key skills you can use to get better at the game.
Know The Maps
I know this is SO obvious but it is probably the BIGGEST deciding factor on a good player Vs. a bad player. If you know the maps, the choke points and the objectives you will be a far better player. You can always tell the players that are new or do not know the maps as they will be running around like headless chickens.
Take a look at this site for help:
Although there is not any REAL help here you will be able to see the look and feel of each map from a bird’s eye view and if in doubt:
Pick a SMG as all of the maps seem pretty tight.
Stick near the edges of the maps to begin with and then move out as you get better.
Perks are key to becoming a better player in Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 – if you don’t understand perks you will not pick the right skills for your playstyle. Again this is tricky as everyone will have a different playstyle and you need to find something that suits you however for some pointers:
The main way to work out which perks you need to pick will be down to the gametype.
For a gametype like Domination where you should be completing an objective you might want to go for a perk like Flak Jacket.
If you are more like a Sniper than Ghost will be decent as you will be undetectable on the UAV’s.
If you find that you are running everywhere you could use Extreme Conditioning to get a longer sprint. Essentially what you need to do is practice and find out your playstyle and then pick perks that complement it.
Always watch the mini map as it will give you an idea of where the enemy are when they are firing and you will also be able to see when once of your team gets killed that will let you know if you are walking into a firefight.
You can also get the edge if you see this happening as you know the area you are in has the enemy nearby.
For actual skills to make your aim better and so on make sure you get the right sensitivity settings and if you are not sure start off low and increase it up as high as you can. Chances are that if your sensitivity is too low you will not be fast to kill the enemy.
Always make sure you are reloaded and when you do make sure you are out of danger or at least crouch or go prone.
Also make sure you actually aim!
Instead of just letting off rounds make sure you aim before you shoot.
It is very easy to “pray and spray” but you will be a lot more accurate if you aim first and then actually shoot. An easy tip but commonly overlooked.
Also remember to switch to your pistol in the middle of a gunfight rather than reload or if it is close up use the knife!
