Keep in mind when sliding corners that you can't ADS and your hipfire cone is maxed for the first half of the slide. You want to round the corner in the slide just as the game lets you ADS, about half-way through the slide.

Could be America-exclusive or very time limited?

Looking online confused me more than ever. Apparently WW2 is one of June's PS plus games, but they did flag it as free early (whether on purpose or accidentally). I had to search for CODWW2, which brings up the $60 Gold Edition, then scroll down to Bundles and the base game was (and still appears to be) free

Maybe only in America because of Memorial Day though?

The secret to fast camos in shipment is to stack your stupidity. No attachments, slide and hip fire round corners. If you're lucky you can even get a few triples, no attachment, crouched and hip fire kills all at once. Then when that's done you throw on whatever poo poo you use and do the mounted ones on the barrels. Then just move on when you only have long shots left.

Long shots can be a little tedious but there's enough bad snipers in ground war and on shoot house in the long lanes you can crank those out pretty fast.

You just drink beer and talk poo poo with your idiot mates while you do it and ignore your pro gamer stats.

Not sure who said double XP tokens dont stack with happy hour/double XP events because they absolutely do and i got like 70K+ on a single game of shipment by stacking tokens during happy hour.

HC 10v10 moshpit has been by far the best place to grind longshots for me. Just gotta remember to back the gently caress out when Kill Confirmed on Euphrates Bridge comes up.

I would have thought that would be ideal for longshots and no one will be collecting tags so itíll go to the time limit!

Best out of 71?

Shoothouse longshots almost has a gentlemanís agreement feeling to it. Iíll hop up there on the wall and get mowed down for five or six kills, then Iíll mow the opposite team down for my five kills. Got gold for my M13 pretty easily. Leveling up the FAL on hardcore shipment has been pretty easy too, except for owning my teammates by accident.

Going for longshot kills on Shoothouse is much easier when you realize you can just drop deployable cover and shoot from one end of the junk yard to the other.

I wish that was the case. I just played a few rounds and it was the sweatiest poo poo I've ever steeped myself in. Just squads of tricked out SMGs gunning you down before you even know they are there, coupled by some adderal enhanced sniping expert on the opposite table.

This assumes your team isn't the one that gets trapped in spawn.

But yeah I got like 20 longshots in a round the one time that actually happened.

I feel like with Mission you could flip the spawns with a concerted effort since it gave you some flanking options. Bridge? Nah, you're hosed and never getting out of there.

Bridge is fine if you start on A side. it is a horrible loving meat grinder if you start on the C side.

Orv posted:

maybe not the jumping so much but crouching and proning is purely a tactic to place your character in the area of the screen hidden by your weapon.

I think jumping thing is because auto aim doesnt really correct for upwards movement, so while auto aim might track a jumping player laterally, you have to manually correct the aim up to hit the high-damage areas.

I mean they could just make it so that jumping immediately craters your accuracy to zero.

and ADS could not give 100% accuracy until the animation is fully finished

and they could make certain weapons *not* a OHK anywhere on the body

but the game has had terrible loving dumb rear end bullshit like that in it for 10 years and like 10 different games so i doubt itll ever change.

Yeah I mean I don't expect it to change but as an old who wins most gunfights by being in the right place before the shooting starts it takes a while to adjust to tracking that jumping. It's fine.

I'm actually doing better than I have in a CoD in years, both in HC and Warzone which is especially baffling since I've been on a long shooter break. Maybe it just all finally stuck after years of being awful.

FYI two goons in the last week had their activision accounts stolen. This game being the first to do crossplay via said account, ALL your progress AND purchases are tied to it instead of your PSN, Xbox, or Battle.net account.

Activision support is non-existent and thereís no apparent way to recover your account once itís taken. The accounts also have no 2factor authentication or any other additional level of security so a really good password is all you can do and that may not even be enough.
