Collateral kills in MW3 are, by far, some of the hardest types of kills to get in the game. They consist of nailing two people with one single shot. This means you’re going to have to be lucky enough to line the shot up and have enough firepower to get two kills with one bullet.

Timing, luck, firepower, and situation are everything for these kills. However, there are ways you can improve your chances.

Pick the right map

Using a map with long corridors is your best bet when it comes to Collateral Kills in MW3. What you want is for your enemies to be funneled into a narrow space and stacked on top of each other. If you can find a map with this angle, it will help a lot.

My suggestion would be inside the plane or in the corridor facing the plane on the Terminal map. The all-new Vista map for Season 2 also has three long corridors. Finding a spot with some cover and mounting your sniper will give maximum stability and the best sight lines. However, you’ll quickly become a target, so move on as soon as you nail your first Collateral Kills in MW3.

Get a heavy-hitting sniper

Here at PC Invasion, we like the Katt-AMR as the one-shot champion of MW3 Collateral Kills. It packs a heck of a punch over a massive range and is a one-shot kill on headshots, even from the upper atmosphere. We recommend this build.

  • Sniper Rifle: Katt-AMR
  • Muzzle: Sonic Suppressor XL
  • Stock: Precision Stock Pad
  • Ammunition: .50 Cal High Grain Rounds
  • Barrel: Zang-34 Barrel
  • Optic: Forge Tac Delta 4

Using this particular sniper, you should be able to do maximum damage. The High Grain rounds will help greatly with bullet penetration, too. What you want is for the bullets to continue through the first target and into the next, making it a Collateral Kill.

Take your time

The real secret to nailing those Collateral Kills in MW3 is patience. They are very hard to get, and if you rush your shots, you’ll only end up missing one or both targets. The best plan is to find an angle with a long corridor and hold it. If you’re playing with friends, you could always get them to watch your back. Otherwise, claymores are the next best option.
