CoD4 noob seeking advice.

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm new to FPS games, and I'm getting owned online (CoD4). Any advice? (Please no basics, like take cover or that... I'm not that bad. ;P)

One thing I was wondering, if I have an automatic weapon, should I fire in bursts or all the way?

Also, M14 or G3?

Anything on how to survive would be helpful, seeing as I'm the first to die all the time:

*Name: AutocannOn
*Kills: ~3550
*Headshots: ~420
*Assists: ~360
*Streak: 12
*Deaths: ~6190
*Time played: ~2d, 3h

Thanks in advance. My SteamID is also AutocannOn, if anyone plays online through Steam.

To be honest, that's not too bad. Try to find good postitions and stay there, even if you aren't getting many kills. It's what I do anyway

Try out MP5 with bandolier, stopping power, and steady aim. Also play HC...you can kill so many more people.

G3 over m14. Add a reddot on that thing and you're set.
Don't have much advice, really..for me I played a lot and after a while I could predict where people would go (or I tried to at least) and I knew spawn points on some maps.
Fire in bursts if they are far away but if an enemy is point-blank, I'd say just hold the trigger.
As for tactics, try not to get into spots where enemies could potentially shoot you from many different points. I try to stick to the outside of maps so you can cover a lot of places. Another tip is changing field of view to maximum. To do this open console and type /cg_fov 80.

test out all the weapons and figure out what you like the most, and radar is probably the most important thing. I love the m14 with red dot, use in bursts, unless in close range

I also use different weapons on different levels, so that's something to consider

i like the g3 better my self. but IMO the best gun is the M16 just becuase it lands 3 bullets on them and its accurate.
but its all about your playing style. throw nades often in spots theres usualy some one.
and the fastest way to level is headquaters, but thats not all the games about

^ I agree with Taquito. M16 is a deadly gun if you can aim accurately. Slap on stopping power onto a set with the m16 and one burst to the chest usually kills.

Okay, so I need to be patient... alright.

I have a class with the MP5 + silencer + Bomb Squad + UAV Jammer + Dead Silence. I use it on servers with few players, and own with my MP and knife. That's probably my best class; should I change Bomb Squad out for Bandolier?

Alright, swapped out my M14 with the G3. I found it hard to aim at long distances (which is what the G3 is best at, no?) with the Red Dot, so I added an ACOG instead.

Spawncamping is evil. Roger, I'll stick near the edges of the map (when possible). What's the standard FOV, in case I want to change it back?

Okay, will do. About the radar, how much should I rely on it?

I can't seem to aim the M16; it ends up landing three uber-accurate bullets either left or right of them. HQ is fun, but I don't really care about leveling... I'm already level 53.

I assume that means firing even if you don't know if anyone is there? Like shooting through a wall hoping to kill?

Thanks for the replies everyone.
