Cruise missiles are easily one of the most destructive and threatening scorestreaks in BOCW, we have some tips on how you can reduce your death by cruise missile ratio.
He’s one of those double-edged gunners, you love it when you have one, hate it when the enemy has it. Depending on which map you are playing, a cruise missile almost guarantees a death or six. The points needed to get one are easily achievable and its range of submissiles makes it simply unstoppable.
If you are facing a team that is just too good, a flurry of blows is not against the realm of possibility. So, to try to defend yourself against possibly the best Cold War scammer Black Ops, here are some ways to destroy it.
Shoot down cruise missiles
99 out of 100 players will run frantically to protect themselves or just accept their inevitable fate, but in fact there is another solution that can solve your problems. Ignore your flight response and fight head-on.
Whether you are trying to maintain a score break or resolve a tense decision in Search & Destroy, knowing this information is extremely useful and can help you win a match.
As the Reddit Noobi user has shown, this can definitely be done, albeit with good reflexes.
Even a pistol with a silencer is enough to bring down a rocket in the blink of an eye, as its construction is apparently very fragile. Therefore, the quality and power of your weapon are irrelevant, everything will depend on your time and skill.
Here are some telltale signs of when to know when a cruise missile is coming.
Card in the upper right corner
Whenever a score break is activated in Black Ops Cold War, the person’s business card will appear in the upper right corner detailing which device was used. Most of the time it will be Spy Planes or Counter Spy Planes, but be careful with an incoming missile.
Monitor the scoreboard
We all keep an eye on the scoreboard for reasons of vanity and integrity, but if you see enemy players with higher scores and far fewer deaths, then you can anticipate an imminent threat.
You definitely have a few seconds to hear the sound of missiles flying towards your position at high speed. In addition, there are lines of dialogue that indicate that someone is approaching too, such as “Enemy cruise missile taking you down.”
Use the trophy system
A well-placed trophy system will lead to the rapid disappearance of a cruise missile. The placement of the trophy system is obviously circumstantial, because if it is a Team Deathmatch game, then chances are that you will not be near it for it to be effective.
But if you are playing a game mode that revolves around fixed points at the point for a certain period of time, a trophy system may work in your favor.
In addition to the fact that it can be used to extinguish grenades and hatchets, the trophy system can also bring down scores. So if you are doing your best to control a flag and a cruise missile is coming to ruin your day, the trophy system will usually intervene.
Some of the CoD values should never be underestimated and Cruise Missiles are a big aspect of a Call of Duty game. Now you can deal with them better and use your new knowledge to take down the missile and ruin someone’s time and efforts to conquer it.
