Aiming and composure are two keys to increasing your KD ratio in Black Ops 2. Good players are extremely good with their aiming, both knowing when to ADS and when to hip fire. I decided to share where these two skills are key below.

Turbine-0.71 kd, “Terrible Hands”

Poorproficiency will kill you every time. Call of Duty MW3 introduced weaponproficiencies as a feature, but I’m talking about fundamentals. When you watch videos of great players scoring kills, watch for howthe reticle moves at diagonals. Youwant to be strafing with one joystick while moving your weapon to center on theenemy with the other joystick. I realized while watching my gameplay that I was ADS-ing, then strafing to center on my target. Be hard on yourself about using both joysticks in tandem. If you find that you are leaning on one, focus on moving them together the next several times you spawn. Stats after the game revealed the telling indicator of my performance: no killstreak rewards, no captures, no defends–not a good way to start the morning.

    When there are two enemies in the open square, you have the high ground and backup (off screen below) DON’T follow the blue arrow! FPS shooters with a high Black Ops 2 kd ratio are cool customers. What I should have done (and you should do to) is come back up to a crouch, rotate behind the statue from the furthest enemy and focus a few chest-head shots on the enemy nearest. Take a breath, and be a calm, collected killer.

    If you want to get a high KD ratio, the first step is to get the kills. Kills reduce the deaths and lead to killstreak rewards… which is where I hope we’ll find ourselves tomorrow. As you see, starting off poorly, getting too flustered in combat, and not grabbing those killstreak rewards gives you a tough KD hill to climb.

    I post my session records because I want to be perfectly honest about my performance. I’m learning too and I want to share my methods for improvement with you. A bad stretch of games in the morning is a great way to get into a horrible mood. After review in Black Ops 2 “Theater” mode, a bad stretch of games is a great education and a great way to get better.


    See you tomorrow. Keep working on your skills… I will be.
