How to get longshot kills in Modern Warfare 2

The two main factors in speeding up getting longshot kills are the game modes you play and the gun builds you use. Some game modes naturally feature more long-range engagements than others making it easier to secure longshot kills. Playing fast-paced point-oriented game modes like Hardpoint is great for weapon leveling but less ideal for this.

Instead, players looking to get longshot kills in Modern Warfare 2 should play Ground War. Ground War is a large-scale 32v32 game mode where two teams fight over five objectives. To accommodate so many players, the maps in Ground War are much larger than regular 6v6 modes, resulting in gunfights often taking place over longer distances. This is fantastic as most kills you get will count as longshot kills.

Another useful tip for getting longshot kills in MW2 is to build your guns for accuracy. Since you are trying to kill enemies from long range, it makes sense to build your guns to have as little recoil as possible. This will make it easier to stay on target when engaging from a distance. Attachments that have Recoil Steadiness, Recoil Control, Vertical Recoil, and Aiming Stability listed as pros are especially useful. Mounting your weapon on suitable surfaces works too as this effectively removes all recoil.

Those who don’t enjoy playing Ground War can still get longshot kills in regular 6v6 playlists. Some maps feature long sightlines that are perfect for securing longshot kills. The best regular maps to get longshot kills in MW2 are Crown Raceway, Mercado Las Almas, Santa Sena Border Crossing, Shoot House, and Taraq.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available on PC via Battle.net and Steam.
