Heed the call, the Call of Duty.

I don't consider myself a gamer but I guess I am. I mean, I only like a few games but those few games take up a lot of my time.

What is the biggest and best game right now? Modern Warfare 2. You probably have heard of it. It sold like a kajillion copies and also had some negative press but either way, you must have been under a rock if you don't know of it.

In the game, you can setup 5 different "classes" with customized weapons and "perks" that can help you achieve a win in a multiplayer game. Did I mention this is a game you play with tons and tons of people online? Probably kajillion.

Anyway, I'm constantly changing classes and I thought I would share with you what I have set up now and why I chose it. But really, these change almost daily.


Class 1 - "Assault"

In a nutshell, this is my standard class. Nothing fancy and just good strong power. This is what I use when I'm not doing well and need to rank up some kills.

Primary - ACR
- Red Dot Sight (fast enemy alignment and works at long range)
- Full Metal Jackets

Secondary - Glock 18 (a super fast secondary weapon can really help)
- Red Dot Sight (can reach out and hit people easier than iron sights)
- Full Metal Jackets

1 Frag Grenade

2 Stun Grenades

- Bling Pro (sometimes rotate with Sleight of Hand Pro)
- Stopping Power Pro
- Steady Aim


Class 2 - "Run"

This is probably my most used class. I love this class. It works on smaller maps and even large maps but if I ever have a bad series, I'll switch to the "Assault" class. In my opinion, most people don't know how to react fast enough when someone is literally running everywhere (and fast) with a knife that can really reach out and get them.

Primary - Vector (love this gun but only picked it because it's an SMG, I never fire it)
- Full Metal Jackets

Seconday - M9 (I keep this out but only b/c of the tactical knife, rarely fire bullets)
- Tactical Knife (the tactical knife with the speed in the perks is deadly!)

Semtex Grenade

2 Stun Grenades

- Marathon Pro
- Lightweight Pro
- Commando Pro


Class 3 - "Challenge"

This class changes the most because it's really just to focus on challenges. If I need more kills with a certain weapon, I turn it on here. It's really a random grouping of weapons and perks but they do serve a purpose.

Primary - M16A4
- Grenade Launcher (working on my noob tube achievements)

Secondary - One Many Army (sometimes I just "change" into this same class so I can refill on ammo!)

Semtex Grenade

2 Flash Grenades

- One Man Army
- Danger Close (using this perk with the noob tube to maximize damage)
- Scrambler (hate this perk because it gives me away but I need to level it up)


Class 4 - "Misc"

This class also changes a lot. I like to play stealthy but still be hard hitting so this is what I have setup for now. Nothing amazing but an all around decent class.

Primary - ACR (just a good all around rifle for me)
- Full Metal Jackets

Secondary - M9 (rarely use but I have a good sidearm and fast knife if necessary)
- Tactical Knife

Semtex Grenade

2 Flash Grenades

- Scavenger Pro (I seem to do well with this class and running out of ammo sucks)
- Cold Blooded Pro (love staying invisible to helicopters/harriers/uav's/turrets..!)
- Steady Aim


Class 5 - "Sneaky"

When I want to run around with no one knowing where I am, I turn this class on. Shooting doesn't show up (and can barely hear) and I'm invisible to UAV's and everything else. Oh, and I can even run without making a sound. Something I just unlocked was the Pro version of Cold Blooded. Now, if people are just scanning, I wont show up if they put their sights over me. Before, their sights would turn red and my name might have shown up, not now!

Primary - ACR (my best gun right now)
- Silencer (stay off the grid...)
- Full Metal Jackets (...still pack a punch)

Secondary - AA-12 (don't mind going loud for just a minute)
- Red Dot Sight (had a silencer but range was way too short)

Throwing Knife (reusable and totally demoralizing!)

2 Stun Grenades

- Bling Pro
- Cold Blooded Pro (with this perk and Ninja Pro, I'm totally off the grid)
- Ninja Pro


Death Streaks - All have Painkiller. I know kids hate that. I do too but it's useful. If I get killed 4 times in a row then I'm having a bad game and need some help. I call it the Dr. Mario Pill and my friend Dave says "someone is on the pill." Hah! Love it!

Kill Streaks - I'll change these up depending on how well (or crappy) I'm playing but right now, they are:

- 5 kills - Predator Missile
- 7 kills - Harrier Strike
- 9 kills - Pave Low

If I do really bad for a few games, I open up just something in 3, 4, and 5. Just so I keep getting presents and stay motivated!

Now that I told you what I have, feel free to use it and let me know if it works for you. Also, I'd love to hear what load outs you've had luck with!

Interesting choices in your classes. I'll have to try out some of these combinations. :)

I usually put my trust in the good ol' M4A1, with either Red Dot Sight or ACOG attached. As secondary weapon, I usually have G18 Akimbo, Model 1887 Akimbo or SPAS12.

The M4A1 is very good at medium to long distance, and so I need something more proper for close quarter combat as secondary weaponry.

For perks I have Scavenger Pro (gotta have that ammo!), Lightweight Pro and Ninja Pro.

I also usually have a similar class, only with the Stinger instead of the other secondary weapons mentioned above, for when those God damn Harriers come in and f**k shit up. :p
