Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Multiplayer Cheats


Adjust your settings

Modern Warfare 3 gives plenty of customization in the menus. There are tons of settings for audio, visual, and input devices that you’ll likely want to change for a better experience. For example, some of the game’s default visual settings aren’t great for multiplayer. Turning off things like motion blur, film grain, and depth of field will greatly help with visibility. There are also settings like changing the field of view to zoom out and see more information on the map. If you’re on console, we have a recommended settings guide for getting the most out of Modern Warfare 3 on PlayStation or Xbox consoles.

Grab a headset

You’ll want to use a headset if possible. Having a headset with a mic is crucial for communicating with teammates, which is especially important when you’re playing objective-based modes. Additionally, a headset also provides better audio quality for increased map awareness, allowing you to better hear enemy footsteps and pinpoint their positioning.

Build custom loadouts

Once you start leveling up in Modern Warfare 3, you’ll unlock plenty of perks and weapons to use. Some guns will be easier to handle than others, and you’ll likely want to choose attachments that help improve the handling and mobility of the weapon. Perk choices will depend on your preferred playstyle.

We do have a recommended loadout guide to help you choose some of the best weapons and perks in Modern Warfare 3.

Choose your streak preference and best streaks

Score-based or kill-based

Just like last year, Modern Warfare 3 lets you choose how you want to earn your streaks, meaning you can work towards killstreaks or scorestreaks. The choice isn’t tied to a perk or any disadvantage; you can simply pick how you want to earn your multiplayer streaks. So, just consider your personal playstyle here. If you’re a player who likes to play aggressive and go for kills, you can leave the streaks on the default setting. However, if you’re someone who likes to play the objective, you might want to switch to scorestreaks.

To choose between killstreak or scorestreak, you’ll simply want to press the right trigger (R2/RT) on the killstreak menu to toggle between the two options. You can change this option at any time between matches, so you don’t have to worry if you change your mind on how you want to play.

Best streaks

Additionally, when choosing killstreaks you want to make some smart choices. Some of the high end streaks like the Chopper Gunner or Juggernaut suit can be a lot of fun to use, but if you’re new to Call of Duty or just struggling to earn streaks, you’ll likely want to go for the choices that either feed you information or take information away from your enemy.

This means the UAV, which is the lowest-cost streak in the game, is actually one of the best to equip. It reveals enemy locations on the minimap and gives you and your teammates map awareness.

The Counter-UAV is another solid choice for a low-end streak, as it will take info away from the enemy. Additionally, the Advanced UAV is a great high-end option as it provides you and your teammates with an untargetable orbital UAV that reveals each enemy’s direction on the minimap in real time.

Navigate the map wisely

Modern Warfare 3 is launching with the entire map pool from 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, and while all of the maps are remastered with only very minor changes, not everyone will be familiar with these old map layouts.

One helpful tip I always give to new friends playing Call of Duty is to work the outskirts of the map. If you just rush straight into the middle of the map, you’re putting yourself in the hot zone, and you run a greater risk of being targeted from multiple angles and enemies. You’ll still get plenty of gunfights working from the outskirts and slowly working inwards, but this gives you time to get more familiar with the gunplay, fast-paced movement, and learn the hot spots for each map.

For example, if you just rush straight to the crashed plane near the center of Afghan, you’ll likely get insta-sniped from a number of different directions.

Keep your gun up

Modern Warfare 3 doesn’t feature a time-to-kill as fast as MW2, but the game does include much faster movement mechanics, meaning an enemy can easily slide or jump around the corner in a flash.

The best way to counter this is to make sure you’re aiming your gun as you navigate through buildings and turn corners. Never have your gun down in these moments, because in the seconds it takes to raise your gun and aim down sights, an opponent can appear out of nowhere and fire at you.
