To help you get started, Activision has shared the following tips and tricks The sun

Gather the troops

Let’s be honest – call of Duty – no matter the game – is always more fun to play with friends. Who wants to play with randoms?

No need for teammates who “act like bots”. If your friends are reasonably good, you’ll smash lobbies together!

Ask your friend if they will play the beta and if they want to play together.

They can all band together to play together as Iconic Task Force 141 and tackle lobbies as they come.

This is the best way to start the beta weekend with ease. It’s like the slogan says, The Ultimate Weapon is Team.

You can then play around the goal and win as a team. This is a surefire way to maximize XP in those early stages of the game’s lifecycle.

Experiment with each weapon

No matter when or how you access the open beta, brace yourself: you can earn the largest collection of free beta rewards ever in Call of Duty history!

A total of ten different reward items—including two weapon blueprints and an operator skin—can be earned during either or both beta weekends.

These items can be equipped in the beta once you’ve unlocked them, and they can only be unlocked during the beta itself. Do not miss!

These special beta rewards, only available if you earn them during the Open Beta, will then become available when Modern Warfare II launches on October 28th.

Imagine being one of the few to have the Side Impact weapon blueprint at launch – a really very rare skin.

To be the first to unlock these, you need to level up fast. As? Experiment with each weapon.

There are various weapon challenges, camouflages, etc. to win in Modern Warfare II.

If you’re constantly using a weapon, your XP will slow down as you level up your weapon and get more kills with it.

The best way to gain XP is to use as many weapons as possible.

Don’t worry about your kill/death ratio

The beta is separate from the later main game and you don’t have to worry about your stats throughout the test.

Your kills, deaths, levels and everything else that goes with it has no influence on your statistics in the finished game.

Forget the stats, try something new and if it doesn’t work – try something else again.

Break out of your usual CoD routine, play unfamiliar modes or try a different playstyle. They can still be normal after release.

Spend time in the settings

If you’re like us, you just want to get right into the gameplay. As fun as that may be, it’s not the smartest choice.

Settings have changed, your sensitivity may need adjusting, or you may not be used to Modern Warfare settings (if you’re from Black Ops Cold War, for example).

Before diving into everything, take 15 minutes to go through the settings and familiarize yourself with your surroundings.
