Get High to Get Kills – Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer

Get yourself to a high position for an advantage
In the heat of battle it is easy to forget to look up. Good players know this and take advantage of the high ground.
If you are like me, you have run pell mell through a fight and all of a sudden get shot out of nowhere. Spec’ing the killer reveals his spot – above you.
Good players realize the advantage of taking the high ground. You get better visibility of the map. You also don’t have to worry about looking up.
The hazards of staying low
Staying low has several drawbacks:
- You have to watch out for enemies in front of you
- You have to watch out for enemies behind you
- You have to watch out for enemies coming from the sides
- You have to watch out for enemies above you from all angles
Taking the high ground elminates #4 – you don’t have to worry about above you. You get a much better view of the whole map below you and have an instant advantage. That is why if you are playing with good players, you will always find them high up, especially on city based maps like Karachi where if you stay low, you are cannon fodder.
Be smart, stay high!
