One of the most under-appreciated perks in MW3 is one of the most valuable for everyone to master!
While playing most first person shooter games online there is usually one strategy that can almost guarantee better results in Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch – working the perimeter.
As you will see in the corresponding video, there are a few different matches that will exhibit the best aspects of working the perimeter in Modern Warfare 3.
The first thing you must do is make the conscious decision to actually work the perimeter. Cast away all desire to run out into the middle of the battleground and take out everyone. You are now ready to move on with step two.
Silenced weapons are the second necessity you must focus on. The idea of this is simple – you don’t want to give away your position on the map for enemies. Also, make sure it is your weapon of choice because it is vital for you to find comfort in your weapons as well as the strategy. My weapon of choice is the silenced MP7 with kick reduction for more effective middle and long-range attacks as well as its fast rate of fire.
The third step is using cover effectively. You must plan out your movements in order to stay alive for the longest possible time while still being an effective player. This means determining whether the cover you use can be shot through (certain metals, woods, etc.) or penetrated from above (predator missile or other kill streaks that come from the air). While having cover is a necessity, you must also stay mobile in case you must backtrack if outnumbered or outmaneuvered.
By the time you figure out how to best navigate the perimeter of each map you will become a much more effective player in this regard. While there are always going to be exceptions to this strategy it remains highly effective.
So, Valentine’s Day is this coming Tuesday. It is in that spirit that I give you all an early gift of digital carnage.

I noticed during my 5th season in Franchise Mode with the Browns that I could move down in the draft one spot and gain a first round pick in the next draft. While I don’t really enjoy making videos or posting blogs about Madden and some of the flaws therein, I must admit that the more I play this game and pay close attention to the trades and what I can do from a front office perspective in Franchise Mode – the more I notice exploits and flaws like this.
In a world full of wonderful people that are pleasant and well-meaning there is always that one jerk that seems to poke his/her/its head out and ruin what might have been a great day. The problem is that while this is a mere possibility in the everyday existence of humanity outside in what some people think of as the ‘real world’ it is a more than common occurrence in the world of online gaming.
The problem with this starts with the assumption that many people have once they go online – the assumption of anonymity.
You aren’t anonymous online and in the world of online gaming, you are surrounding yourself with a lot of socially maladjusted kids that have grown up on Sponge Bob and Crack (Mountain Dew). So, when you start hearing that kid on your headset say something about your gamertag being gay or stupid just do the smart thing. Mute, avoid and report the rugrat.
This also goes for any of the typical punks you come across – Mute, Avoid and Report. (Think Wash, Rinse, Repeat)
I will be posting some videos to show exactly how to do this as the week progresses.

My personal favorite so far was when I was teamed up with my friend Wonky Britches <—- Real Gamer Tag!!!!
and some guy’s (I am assuming a minority) trash talk was – “You’re just some white guys with good credit!!!!”
I am still trying to figure out if this was meant to offend us or simply imply that he admired our credit scores. Either way, keep your language clean when you are online because all it takes to find out your name or other stuff is a simple google search of your gamertag.
Both of these take some time to learn, but you will be glad you did.
When you play Battlefield 3 the first thing you will notice is that it is a fairly realistic game for the most part. While it isn’t ARMA 2 – it is still a great game for some more ‘paced’ action than Call of Duty’s high octane, ADD/Arcade shooter modes.
The next thing most people notice is the presence of vehicles in Battlefield 3. The vehicles are awesome and if you can master them you will be amazing at this game. However, if you are driving a jeep or anything with open windows or ‘open air’ available to be shot through – you are a target. Not only are you a target…
You are MY TARGET. I love the recon class and DICE (the creator of Battlefield’s Online Mode) understand that snipers aren’t front lines warriors; they are laying low and taking sure shots that no one else really could. In this case you see me as a recon class with an SV98 Sniper Rifle…
The video will walk you through how to snipe a jeep jockey and make what is difficult a little easier and more enjoyable… For snipers anyway.
