Want to play Black Ops 2 better?

Men’s Journal just released 9 tips on how to become a better player based on interviews with Mike “Hastro” Rufail and Ryan “Fwiz” Wyatt, official play-by-play announcers for Major League Gaming (MLG).
- Cover is your greatest ally: Might sound obvious, but utilising cover makes you a smaller target, in contrast to the ‘run and gun’ approach
- Perfect your jump shot: Learn to jump, aim and shoot while in gunfights, moving through doorways and around corners.
- Stop, drop and fire away: The dropshot can drastically throw off your opponent’s ability to target you, and Wyatt recommends changing your controller to “Tactical” button layout
- Try attaching the millimetre scanner (MMS) to your weapon: It has the capability to reveal enemies behind cover or smoke within 25 meters and is touted as the ultimate anti-camper weapon.
- Know your spawn points: Understand where respawn zones are using theater mode and position your team to force respawns that are tactically advantageous.
- Be aggressive: Learn to play with ‘smart’ aggression, going after the enemy instead of protecting your KD ratio, but making sure you have the advantage where possible before engaging.
- Practice, practice, practice: Practice your shooting and aiming via fast-paced objective game modes like Headquarters and Domination that are more target-rich.
- Watch yourself: Use theater mode for your education, watch and learn about how you got taken out so easily, using your opponent’s point of view.
- Get a better TV: If you are serious about your hardware, a 20 to 27 inch computer monitor with short response time outguns a 42+ inch flat screen in terms of responsiveness to onscreen activity…having said that, I am not keen to go smaller screen and miss the action!
