I'm terrible in the Crucible

#1

My 0.37 k/d explains it very well. Can’t even get assists because my teammates don’t want to be around me.

There’s a reason I walked around with a riot shield back in Modern Warfare 2.


#2

It’s all about using the radar.

Disclaimer: I suck too.


#3

And the shotgun… a lot


#4

Yes, the radar works very well at leading me to my death.


#5

No worries, I’m not great, either. I found using the radar a lot more to know where the enemy is certainly helps, as does playing less aggressively. In other words, less random running around and more preparing for a gun fight, trying to get the jump on people.

I’m not a huge fan of the PVP in this game; it feels unbalanced and too unpredictable to me. It is a lot of one-hit kills and less actual gun fights. It is also better if you can keep your distance. I’m not sure if it’s a special, but the Hunter melee attack is brutal. I’m planning to level up my Defender subclass and see how differently it plays.


#6

I’m in the same boat, middle age and twitchy PvP is a rough combo for me.


#7

Last two matches I rocked a 0.9 k/d. Movin’ up the boards with that hand cannon.


#8

At first I had it pretty rough in the crucible but i’m getting better. I used to run an’ gun alot but now I play a bit slower, try to hold down choke points and whatnot.

Except when I get heavy ammo…then I go full on viking-berzerk! MOAR DAKKA!

@Nubhugs I can not get used to the shotgun in this game, does it get better when You upgrade it? It is easy for me to reach 2 k/d but people with shotgun annoy the hell out of me, since I can not do it myself : D

@Topic Just get an auto rifle with as high fire rate as possible and aim for the head : P That is my approach ;]


#10

@Moro I think shotgunning is 85% luck and location. I guess it relates to the radar discussion. Usually I switch when they are coming to me on the radar and I’m in good close quarters, which is most maps. I play a lot of Control and it’s really effective for flag defending.

Since shotguns are all different in range, most REALLY short, you need to learn your range which takes a lot of “THAT’S BS I HAD HIM” deaths.


#11

@Nubhugs Do You zoom or hipfire?


#12

@Moro I zoom all the time. I have a shotgun that gives me just a bit more range when I aim down sights.


#13

I’m determined to blow heads off with the hand cannon in everything I do. I’m only level 12 therefore haven’t unlocked Defender subclass, so I’m hoping my close-quarters style will get a little better after that.

Until then it’s cannons & shotguns, then finish them off with a fist-to-the-face. I’m also trying to practice my slide technique as a gap closer.


#14

2.57 k/d. I took the screenshot and posted it on the fridge.

#15

.037 to 2.57 in under 24 hours. Either we have a god gamer or someone is using Game Genie


#16

It helps pad the stats when 3-4 are standing on the flag so I can roll in with Fist of Havoc.


#17

Nicedude! That was control?


#18

Yes on Control. I seem to do better with objectives than open deathmatch.


#19

I haven’t even played a match since the beta…I know it’s probably time to go.
