The competitive group of gamers over at SemperCog lend their hand with five of the most important tips for ensuring multiplayer domination and victory in Call of Duty: Black Ops.
After extensive trial and error I've been able to find the settings that best give me the FPS and lag free experience I need for total multiplayer domination, no matter the gametype or map.
No matter what u do Kdog, ill still kick ur @$$ =P
Big DISAGREE added. Follow the tips and suggestions involved and we'll see what happens. ;)
Nice post, but i still agree with LJ on this one Kdog.
Noone brings down the KDog in online competition. NO-ONE I TELL YOU! With that said I can't stress enough how important the graphical changes and tweaks are to ensuring a satisfying and efficient multiplayer experience.
You should always go for a high DPI mouse but lower your ingame sens waaay down. Lower sens will enable you to be faster and more precise (with training, youre going to suck at first). Never heared of anyone actually trying to promote high sens in FPS games. Just go and read any random CS guide.
Like we’ve mentioned, it comes to finding a sweet spot that further enhances your PERSONAL playing ability. Even with say, a Razer Naga set to its full DPI potential, get’s bogged down if the in-game’s sensitivity is set too low. While I personally play with the mentioned DPI and in game sensitivity settings, further experimenting with your own will ensure a better experience and range of movement. As an added note, I don't take most of my multiplayer tips for BO from "any random CS guide." But hell, PC players are an opinionated lot. I should know.
Well it doesnt really work like that. Any sens level will become a "sweetspot" if you play with it for a while. If you want to get better start lowering your sens from what you are comfortable with and play with your new sense untill it feels good. Then lower it again. its not easy to know when to stop but if it takes to long to get accustomed to the new sens you have probably reached your limit. The reason i mention CS guides is because CS is even more skillbased than COD and when you get "good" every advantage should be used. Lowering your sens is one thing that can make you progress from being good to being great. Its easier for a human to make a larger movement quickly and still be precise than a small movement. Many seems to belive that lower sens makes you "slower" but that only applies until you learn to move your mouse faster. In the end the payoff is great.
I agree. I can’t emphasize how much these simple tweaks actually help game performance. It was so frustrating stutter stepping all over the place, haha…
These tips are great but in the end it all comes down to if you have it you have it, if you don't you don't.
I doubt that any pro gamers are at that level because of some inherent skill. Like anything, practice pays. Learning the maps and the nuances of the game mechanics can make anyone a great player. 8 hours a day can make you amazing.
#1. Camp #2. Snipe #3. Bunny Hop #4. Strafe and spray #5. Prone jump I am just about done with competitive MP. I only played it in Call of Duty: Black Ops to get the trophy. I can't believe how bad this has gotten since the days of Counter-Strike. I think Im getting to old for competitive. It seems like they gear it towards 10-20 year olds. cuz for me it just aint fun anymore. Now coop, thats a whole different story, love it.
Spoken like a true TDM junkie. Try playing S&D and communicating with your team.
I was being sarcastic. like "here are the things i hate about MP" I guess you didn't read the whole thing. I hate MP in Black Ops, it's terrible.
You're clearly playing the wrong game Cryptech. Try Bad Company2 and leave the kiddie games to the kids.
That's one that I can actually play and enjoy, looking forward to Vietnam addon. I also enjoy Armed Assault 2. Now that you mention it, maybe it is the game. I haven't ever really enjoyed the multiplayer in any Call of Duty. The only exception would be Zombies and Spec Ops. I wish they would've added more coop in this itteration. oh wellz, I guess I just had to vent a little.
You do know that the Call of Duty series is mainly MP right Cryptech?
I've never bought it for the MP. I just play the campaigns. Throw it on vet and get my ass handed to me lol. I did love Spec Ops and Zombies though, nice additions.
