How do you be better at Black Ops? I can't get the grip of it but I was good in the previous game. How do you shoot fast or are there any hints or tips or techniques you could advise me?

It takes quite a bit more practice to get good at this game than in MW2, because most of the weapons are fairly balanced and there aren't really any weapons that stand out as "overpowered". I'd recommend trying out weapons as you unlock them and finding out which ones you're good with, because everyone is going to have different preferences. (I personally prefer the AUG, Commando, M14 and MP5k.) If you're just starting out, some good choices to start out with are the aforementioned MP5k (unlocked right away, good all-round SMG), FAMAS (buyable early on, accurate, high ROF), and Enfield (decent power and accuracy, buyable when Create-a-Class is unlocked).--WouldYouKindly 19:16, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

I would go into Combat Training, set 2-3 bots on recruit difficulty, and get a feel for the weapons you like the most. For example, start with the M16: Good range and accuracy, and once you get used to the burst fire, it can be lethal with a good aim. As WYK said the Enfield is a great purchase, and can fit most play styles. Secondly, find a perk set up that fits your style. Scavenger, Lightweight, Sleight of Hand and Marathon are good for offensive players, while Scout and Hardline are for more defensive players. When you are comfortable with your set up, go online and try it out for real. ScavengePro1Eltomo85 talk 19:36, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

  • Aim for head
  • adjust contrroller sensitivy to your liking
  • practice tactics and test weapons in Combat Training

Hope that helps. And advice : Just cuase stats on damage say so doesn't mean you can be good or bad at it.

Don't believe what the game tells you about weapon stats. Always check here first. Recoil on guns is different, you may want to combat train to get used to it.

Don't buy attachments you don't think you'll need.

Don't buy weapons you won't use.

Try to vary classes instead of having the same perks with just different primaries.

Play the game with a relaxed mindset.AdvancedRookie 19:46, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Is it good to have aim assist on for multiplayer since I feel really slow when it comes to killing other people? Also how do you check you kill/death ratio overall, not for a gun?? Thanks for your help.

You can change controller sensity to where you don't feel slow. The K/O in the leaderboards ain't it ?
