Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Tips

Tips and tricks to help you kick ass in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

This article will teach you a few tips and tricks for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer. It’s been a year since the most recent Call of Duty game, and the formula has changed since then with the addition of modernized weapons and new movement mechanics. Before you take the plunge into multiplayer, it’s a good idea to acquaint yourself with some of the changes. Read on to find out a few tips for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Use Cover

Arguably one of the best tips for any shooter is to ensure you use the cover to your advantage. When moving between locations, try to keep close to walls, obstacles, and other environmental pieces so that if you do take a hit, you are close enough to quickly slide behind some protection. But also...

Keep Moving

While remaining behind cover to heal is important, an equally important tip for succeeding in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is to keep moving. However, this doesn’t necessary mean blazing around the map at full speed. Take your time, but keep applying pressure to the enemy by forcing them to reposition. Use the environment to your advantage as well. Thanks to the Rig’s thrusters, you’ll be able to move swiftly around the map, which will make it difficult for the enemies to hit you.

Use the Thrusters

This tip ties in with the above Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare tip to keep moving, but is a little more specific. The thrusters on your Rig allow you to do a Thrust Jump which will send you in a direction of your choosing. As you move, use the Thrust Jump to change the position of your head and body, this will make it difficult for snipers to hit you and for enemies to track you.

Remember to Slide

Sliding is an extremely useful mechanic as it allows you to maintain some of your momentum while also reducing your overall hitbox size. Use this to your advantage when repositioning or moving as you will be more difficult to shoot. It’s also a crafty move when you need to be aggressive, as a sliding opponent is more difficult to hit than one that runs in a straight line.

Reload Often

You can’t kill an enemy when you don’t have enough bullets in your gun. Take the time to reload after each engagement. Running into a group of enemies with a gun half-full of rounds will do you little favors. If an enemy manages to evade you, take a moment to reload before chasing them down as you could easily encounter more of their teammates around the next corner.

Watch Your Mini-Map

The mini-map is there for a reason. It should become second nature to glance over at it during a match. By keeping a bead on your mini-map, you’ll be able to easily tell where your allies are and if there are any enemies in your vicinity.

Learn the New Perks

As with previous titles, in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare there are perks that can be unlocked. These perks directly affect how you can play the game. Take the time to read over the perks, regardless of whether you have them unlocked, that way, when you encounter them during a match, you will know how they work and how to combat them. Taking the time to read the perks will also give you an indication of alternate playstyles you might like to employ in the future. Perks are a great way to change up the way you play or even enhance your preferred playstyle in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Take Your Time During Zombie Fights

Preparing for the next round in a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombie game is just as important as staying alive during a fight. Before the round finishes, save one zombie and spend time collecting ammo, purchasing weapons, and regrouping with your teammates. It’s important that you begin each wave with as much preparation as possible.

Watch for Hitmarkers

Whenever a shot you fire connects with an enemy, it will be highlighted by a hitmarker on your screen. By watching whether a hitmarker appears, you will be able to easily tell where an enemy is or whether your shots are hitting or clipping the environment. If you see no hitmarker when firing at an enemy, try repositioning or shooting at a different section of their model.

Save Your Salvage

When you first start to earn Salvage in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, your reaction may be to immediately research a prototype of the gun you are currently using. Instead of researching the first gun, take some time to amass a bit of Salvage before taking the plunge. By doing this, you will avoid wasting Salvage on a weapon that may be underwhelming, while also ensuring you have enough to craft a weapon you might prefer later down the track.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare brings to the table a whole host of changes that alter the familiar territory of multiplayer. By taking the time to familiarize yourself with the above tips, you will sure to enter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with an advantage over your competition.
