Call of Duty 4 Tips and Hints: Page 1 | Page 2

Grenade Tip - When throwing grenades, its very easy to hit someone if you aim at about an 70-80 degree angle.

Grenades require a large toss in this game if you want them to travel far. Try to learn the exact distance grenades travel at different angles.


Shoot through walls - Anytime you see red dots on your radar directly in front of you, and there is a wall, spam it. You WILL get kills this way. I've seen too many of my teammates just stand there when there are like 5 red dots on the radar directly next to us.

Anytime I spam a wall with multiple enemies with an M16 with Deep Impact, I get at least two or more kills.


Be Aware - It's simple. Always glance at your radar when you can. Then listen for footsteps and judge where an enemy will be. Look at where your teammates are on the radar. Those areas are much less likely to have enemies.

Always try to get to know the map well enough to know where an enemy might be coming from. Predict where enemies will be. Always be ready for an enemy around every corner...because as you know, it is very easy to hide with UAV jammer and a silenced weapon.




Teamwork - Most people run around like rambo in this game. I advise more people team up and work together. I just don't understand when someone is taking the flag, and you are off somewhere trying to kill a lone sniper, in the middle of nowhere.

The radio commands are not that good in this game though, so you will have to actually communicate. (On the PC version.) On the Xbox360 version there is more teamwork because of the headsets.


Gold desert Eagle Hint - You get the gold desert eagle at level 55.

Some tips - This is in addition to the Survival tips. I haven't been playing long, so I don't have many examples. Try not to be redundant.

  1. Never keep advancing toward an opponent with a shotgun (w/out your own). Shotguns are the most effective at close range. Keep a safe distance and engage.
  2. When your health indicator flashes red, (duh) take cover until it is no longer flashing.
  3. Remember to always shoot the Helo. Hide somewhere then pop out, hit it a few times and then hide again. The helo is pretty stupid most of the time, and won't be able to kill you if you have some nice overhead cover. to ensure no opponents are about to knife you. (It happens.)
  4. If you hear a grenade drop, slow down what you're doing until you hear it explode. No reason to run right into a freshly thrown grenade.
  5. Flaming cars will explode with a blast radius of almost double that of a C4.
  6. If you see a C4, don't just run by it, chances are that the enemy is waiting for you to walk by.
  7. Lay down when planting bombs.
  8. If you get lucky on any mode sniping from a certain place, DO NOT STAY THERE!
  9. Same but with S&D dont go back


4 Tips -If you wing a guy that is running towards' his side of the map and is a fair distance from you, let him go, odd's are it you chase him you will run to about 3-5 of his teammates and meet a quick death.

-CHECK CORNERS, I cant count the time sif been kill in a seemly empty room but some punk hiding in a shadowy corner, it still happen in fact.

-Dont attack all enemy's on sight, know when to attack and when to shadow them until the time is right for a strike.

-Martyrdom is a childish and weak way to get kill's in any game type on any map.....expect shipment, there is is GOD!

-(Obvious one) When you here a "click" RUN! It means a claymore is about to end our existance.


Sniping common sense - This should be common sense for a sniper, but if you've killed 4+ people from the same vantage point, its time to find a new spot, or they will snipe you back...


Reloading - If an enemy catches you mid-reload, chances are you're about to die. Only hope is to use the sidearm and hope for the best. Reloading even when you've only shot a round or two can really save you later.


A few more tips - In domination type games, if you don't have any decent cover or no one's got a smoke grenade, run back and forth...zig zag, and be a difficult target.

The area you can stay in around the flag is bigger than you think. A perfect example is when people hide in that one spot in Shipment to capture B.

They're protected by barrels, and can hide in the dark. Their only concerns are a person running in there too or cooked grenades.

-In a S&D game in Bog, you can plant the bomb without actually having to go inside

-Flanking helps. A lot. Do it. In 2's.

-Just like what's said in those death quotes...If you can see the enemy. The enemy can see you too. Unless of course, you're behind their back...just hope they don't have good ears/good sound system.

Don't spend too much time trying to get that headshot. They just might move and spot you.

-Sleight of Hand doesn't work while Last Standing. Sorry.


Boom.. no headshot? - Never aim for the head with a pistol, aim for the neck, they are not 1 hit kills, by the time the second bullet flys out the recoil will have aimed for you.


Grenade Tip - - Don't always throw a grenade to the center of the room, throw it towards the wall, so it will bounce off towards the center of the room. This way you can throw a grenade into a room without exposing yourself.


So have you tried C4 yet? - Let me guess once or twice? Personally I use it all the time in search and destroy when you are defending. Plant the 2 C4\'s on A or B your choice.

For Example I place the C4 at a, then I run back all the way to B and guard that area. When the bomb is planted at B trigger off the C4 ASAP, you have killed the bomb planter maybe 2 if lucky. Don't plant the C4 in obvious spots.

If you have C4 planted then dont run about, hide! Also you can place a C4 at a flag you are defending, and when it's being taken detonate it! (Submitted by Cory)


Claymore tips by Phc Reaper
A great defense against unsuspecting players rushing in for the kill. This is a great Perk 1 to use on Mulitplayer. For Snipers, it's probably thier best friend.

These things are deadly, but only when placed in a good position. Also be aware that players can run past claymores right before they explode and survive. The key is to put it at an enemie's blindspot. In doorways, try to position the claymore as close to the door as possible, while still keeping it out of sight from the side the enemy is going to run through.

If your going to be hinding in a room the claymores lead to, make sure your behind cover that's inbetween you and the opening where the claymore is. If you don't, the enemy could just shoot you from outside the room.

More tips on the way. Please submit your own if you have any. Thanks!
