    COD 4 on xbox live any multiplayer tips?

    Have just started playing this on live and have got to level 5 Lance corporal, but are there any good tips for levelling-up please? Red dot sights would be good for a start.
    looked at a few guides, but most of them list level achievements rather than useful hints. Sick of getting my butt kicked by high school kids!
    Anyone want to invite me to a game later, my tag is J9STL. (good cannon fodder at the mo!)

    you have to earn red dot sights by killing 25 enemies with the gun of your choice, try using sub or light machine guns as they are easy to use and fire lots of bullets :-D

    Go through each gun starting from the top of the list, just get the 150 kills required per gun, don;t worry about the headshots till later. Have your classes made to reflect the guns you need to get the 150 kills, works out about 1350 points per 150 kills you will level kinda quick.

    I have had a few kills, but at times I picked up a victim's gun after and used it as it was better. Maybe need to stick to the one gun as you say :thumbsup:

    playing different matches like team death match and free for all to get easy unlocks and level ups too, choose your perks wisely, martydom is a good one to use

    Use the M4 carbine with grenade launcher or the RPD on Hardcore mode. This mode is so much better than the normal one and you can rack up a lot of points quickly, especially if you get on the winning team of search and destroy. Use the mp5 in close quarters maps. Use the UAV Jammer perk in hardcore mode as stopping power makes no difference in hardcore, most guns are 1 shot 1 kill. What time you thinking of playing?

    Best tip is be on my team :lol: ....... you win more games than you loose - quite often when you come across kids that use jugganaught I'll team up with someone and they'll follow up my sniper shots with finishing them off with a machine gun, you'll get the kill points and the winning bonus. try to complete some of the easier challenges first - they're worth more xp.

    Seriously though, best bet is just get yourself familiar with the maps and find out which guns and perks work best for your style of play for that map.

    I read of one unlock that you jump 30 feet to your death for points!

    Play Search and Destroy for more points per kill, join up with some good people while you learn, try out all different classes and perks. Learn the maps there are some very obvious spots people will kill you from.

    Learn the easy ways onto the roofs and hard to get places asap.

    NEVER run forward in the first 10 seconds of a search and destroy match unless you wish to have a hail of grenades land on you.

    Go onto Crash and then jump off the top of the building.

    i agree with the carbine but the gerande launcher isnt always the best route if you keep missing! have shot people while they reload just need to learn to jump and dodge dodgeball springs to mind!

    play headquarters --> you get more points !!!

    This works for 15 feet too as long as you dont die

    one is to jump off 15 feet and survive...... jump off one of the machine gun turrets on the ledges either side of the map on downpour.

    thanks for info so far guys - will need to start taking notes soon :thumbsup:
    probably get killed reading notes in middle of game lol

    When you go for the "What the ?" achievement,. equip C4 on Vacant and throw it through the gate inside the building., then when an oppenent walks through the opposite door shoot through the gate hitting the C4 for easy completion.

    tell her everyone gets kicked out at the end now she know what happens simple

    Claymores when you unlock em will give you lots of added kills....

    Plus if you can get an RPG shoot down a chopper (2 shots!) and you will get 250 points first time...

    check out all the challenges in the Barracks section....
    I stuck with M16 trying to get all headshots and its just so slow...so have been changing to different weapons as Alfonse says and been flying up lately

    As someone else said M4 is a good weapon. I find rapid reload is a good idea with this gun when it's unlocked as it can be a bitch when you start to reload just as someone comes round a corner . It has fair range and tends not to jump about when you fire.

    Also you would be suprised the number of kills you can get from having the drop grenade when you die or pull a handgun at death addons.

    a lot easier on a turret though...... downpour best for that one, pipeline if you have a good team to protect you.

    come back to COD4 , we can take turns killing each other :thumbsup:

    If you sneak up on someone try to headshot them instead of just knifing them it will help with the challenges in the future. UAV Jammer is a very good perk when you can unlock it.

    :lol: not always.

    Anyone who plays against me knows I'm a sniper, but not a camper - I move around a lot, but on certain levels I have my favorite spots - the biggest danger I have there is when I run out of claymores from those who sneak up on me, at least if they knife me they'll be caught up in the resulting explosion from matrydom.

    variety pack free d/l with GOTY edition.
    The Variety Map Pack includes four new multiplayer maps. "Creek" is a wide-open village ravaged by combat where concealment is the difference between life and death. In "Broadcast," fight throughout an enemy communications building with confined corridors and wide-open parking lots. "Chinatown" is a foggy downtown district, lit only by a full moon and the neon glow of the city. "Killhouse" features a desolate training warehouse filled with a variety of building mock-ups and soft and hard cover points.
