One of the challenges for the DG-58 LSW is to get 25 strafing kills. If you don’t know how to get those strafing kills in Modern Warfare 3 (MW3), we can show you. Follow along.

Modern Warfare 3 (MW3): How to get strafing kills

The act of strafing is when you move side to side without turning. Sounds easy right? Wrong. You must use hip fire, meaning you can’t aim down sights. This can be pretty hard to do especially if you’re like me and accustomed to moving around like a squirrel. 

While playing Modern Warfare 3, I’ve found if you got a weapon like the M4, with a good build, kills via strafing can be easily done. However, if you don’t have the M4 unlocked, any AR or BR will do. Just make sure they have above average fire rate and handling. Because you can shoot first and make your shots count, getting strafing kills comes with ease.

Play on smaller modes

Another area to look into is what mode you’re playing on. Fighting on bigger scales battles like Ground War could either make it harder to get those kills. This is because players are spread out more, and father out. If you go snipers on the field, well that’s just going to throw a wrench in your progression. So my best advice would be to play on smaller game modes like Kill Confirmed, Team Death Match, and my favorite, Cutthroat

Additionally, to take things even further, try to play on maps like Rust. Even though I hate this map, it’s great for getting a bunch of challenges done at an amazing pace. Unlike most maps in Modern Warfare 3, Rust is very contained and small, and you can get consistent kills faster because everyone is near you almost all the time.
