Black Ops Strategy
In this article, I will not only be revealing three of my favorite
weapon and perk combos, but also the best Black Ops strategy to play them to rack up tons of kills. Between
the three, you will be sure to find a class that you like.
Additionally, you can use all of these classes, depending on the map you are playing on. I routinely use all
three, and my choice depends on the map and the enemies I am playing against.
Black Ops Strategy - Best Weapon and Perk
Unless otherwise stated, most of these combinations are based on my experiences in team games, in particular
team deathmatch. If you like to play FFA, all three can be used; I would pick one based on your
playstyle.Click Here to Visit Black Ops Domination - The #1 Black Ops Guide
Combo #1 - The Balanced Build
Weapon: M-16 with Red Dot attachment (any assault rifle works)
Perk 3: Last Stand
Strengths: This is my favorite overall combo. I find that when playing with a set-up like
this, I can not only get a lot of kills, but I also rarely die. It is perfect for larger maps and team games.
Weaknesses: This build suffers when it comes to charging buildings and rushing enemies'
that are camped out. It does require some patience.
Strategy: The key way to play this set-up is to move slowly (you should almost never
sprint) and focus on working a specific part of the map. Patience is key, as you want to slowly move from cover
point to cover point (i.e. rocks, walls, buildings) as you look for players.
When you see someone that does not see you, kneel, aim, and shoot them. Usually a torso shot with the M16 will
result in a kill and a headshot always will. This build rewards accurate players, so if your aim is good you can
quickly rack up a lot of kills.
Another thing I like about this build and the M-16 in particular is that it only uses 3 bullets a shot, and you
should be able to take out another player in 1-3 shots, depending on distance. As a result, your ammo goes a very
long way. Completely automatic assault rifles run out of bullets very quickly if you are not careful.
I always pick last stand with this build because of the perk that lets other players revive you. When you get
revived, your killstreak is maintained, which makes it a lot easier to get big rewards like the Chopper Gunner.
When using a rifle, you generally should stick with your team, so your chances of getting revived are high.
Combo #2 - The Assassin
Weapon: AK47U with silencer attachment (or another submachine gun)
Perk 2: Ghost
Strengths: Really shines at small maps. Also works well versus highly-skilled players. You
can get a lot of kills shooting from the hip. It is also a very exciting build because you are always moving
Weaknesses: Cannot shoot far due to submachine gun and silencer combo. You need to be
close to reliably get kills. You will also die frequently; it is hard to rack up a large killstreak with this
Strategy: This is an awesome set-up because you never show up on radar. It is downright
amusing the amount of times you end up sneaking up behind another player (or even group of players). Since you have
a silencer, you can shoot without a problem and frequently take out large groups of players who are facing away
Your main strategy here is to flank the enemy team the best you can. You want to avoid your teammates.
Your teammates will show up on radar so you want to stay as far away from them as you can. Try to head around the
outskirts of the map the opposite direction from where your team is going.
This way, while the enemy is distracted fighting your team, you can come up from behind and often surprise an
entire team of players. However, these players are then likely to spawn all around you, making it tough to stay
alive for long.
That said, if you play it right you wind up with 2-3 kills for every death that you have. For this reason, I
prefer to only break this out when I am playing against a good team. Versus a weaker team I will almost always opt
for Combo #1.
Combo #3 - Bunker Buster
Weapon: Shotgun with grip attachment
Perk 2: Steady aim
Specials: Claymore, Frag Grenade, and Flash Bang.
Strengths: This combo was built for busting into crowded rooms and clearing out groups of
campers and Snipers. It is also well-built to defend highly-trafficked buildings, particularly buildings that offer
good vantage points for the level.
Works well on small maps with buildings (such as Nuketown).
Weaknesses: Absolutely no range. You can only fight in close-quarters combat. However, you
can always grab an assault rifle as a secondary weapon from someone you kill.
Strategy: Now this build has a very particular use and a very particular Black Ops
strategy. Notice that this is the only build which I specifically note that you will want to get a Claymore, Frag
Grenade, and Flash Bangs as your specials. Here is how it all comes together:
When playing this build, your primary objective is to storm into rooms where the enemy is hiding out in. This
works particularly well in rooms where players like to shoot out of the windows (i.e. buildings that you can see
most of the level from).
What you will do is when you approach a room you know is full of people, you can cook a grenade, toss it in the
room, immediately follow it with a flash bang, then charge in and start spraying with your shotgun.
Do not aim the shotgun. Shoot from the hip and strafe; if you are even half-way accurate with your frag grenade
and flash bang it will be absolutely no problem to wipe out an entire room full of people.
The beauty of this build is that it works even when the enemy knows you are trying to break in. It is a great
way to break boring stalemates where the enemy is refusing to engage in combat.
An assault rifle and submachine gun will not stand up to a shotgun being fired from the hip (i.e. not aiming),
and when you stack a grip with steady aim, you have extremly high accuracy with a shotgun from a close range,
resulting in many 1-hit kills. In short, it is a lot of fun to unload 8 shots from a semi-automatic and quickly
take out a room full of people.
Once you take the room, it is almost guaranteed that your enemies will want to take it back. Set your Claymore
by the entrance; this is not likely to net a kill but will let you know when someone is coming. Post up with your
shotgun at a hidden point at the top of the steps or just behind the door frame and blast them as soon as they step
It is nearly impossible for someone with an assault rifle to take back a popular camping spot once you have
control of it with a shotgun.
Black Ops Strategy Conclusion
These three builds all give you all the Black Ops strategy you need for dealing with any situation you may be
placed in. Combo #1 is an all purpose-build that gives you the best chance for landing a large killstreak, Combo #2
is an easy way to get kills even against very tough opponents, and Combo #3 helps you flush out any campers to
breathe life into a game that ends up in a stale-mate.
