im new here and simi new at this mp game (stoppped for a while)but i don't do bad except... tell me, I thought this pb mode stops the cheats. how can i guy hit me with 3 shots and im out, yet i can unload a mag into them and nothing. is it me that im such a bad shot? is there a way around this? it's not much fun to play this way today. when the game first came out it was great now it depends who is playing. :confused:

The reason you may have been killed so quickly was that the person was possibly head-shoting you while you were aiming for the body. Go for head shots with the thompson, go for only head shots ... you'll find you kill a lot quicker. It is possible the person may have been using a cheat but IMHO it doesn't sound like it from what you described.

Also, a little known trick, make sure you use short controlled bursts when you fire or you will miss half your shots. If you notice your aiming cursor, when you hold down the fire, it gets bigger, this is giving you a visual cue of the area the bullets can hit. As you hold down the trigger longer, the gun becomes less and less accurate. Its difficult to do, but if it gets too big, you will have to stop firing, pull back, take cover if possible, and wait a couple seconds for the aiming cursor to get smaller, then be carefull again.

Thanks for the replays. It just seems funny how someone can hit me in the head with 3 to 4 shots while their dancing around the room. It's really a quick death. I know I can jump up and down while shooting keeping the cross hairs on target, but no way if I'm moving side to side (a and d buttons). I do know I do have a problem doing head shoots trying to keep the hairs high enough but im working on it. Thanks again for the info, anymore help would be appreciated.:confused:

Gnaget and Nighshade have some good tips, bro :agreed: :agreed:

Here's my 2 cents...try using a smaller crosshair that you select in the game setup...not sure of where it is in the menu but you'll find it. At first, your kills may drop but you should notice that they will get better with time. The reason for this is that it will force you to aim better. Big crosshairs are very misleading cause the shot still only goes to the spot basically and all that other poop just gets in my way at least from seeing where you want the shot to go and where his head is.

Some other things to consider...the later in the day you play, at least as far as I have seen, the more you start to run into the really good players. These guys are "hardcore" and alot of them are in clans that rank among the best in the league they are in...guess how good they have to be to be on that team...:uhm: :uhm: Also, practise...practise...practise... When I first started a few months ago, I was terrible...couldn't hit anyone and usually wound up killing my own team by mistake :( :( Not saying that I'm THAT good, but feel I can at least hold my own and be an asset to a team.

You'll get better...don't worry...then the MP really starts to get fun.

Uh-oh...:lookaround: :lookaround:now I'm going to have to watch out for you if you're on the other team. Happy to hear that it helped you. Don't forget those headshots dude and whenever possible, crouch when firing any weapon...really improves accuracy. Another thing that will really improve your kill rate is to become good with grenades...saw one guy run through 4 of us, drop a grenade, killed all of us and then got away clean...love to be that good with them.
