Black Ops tips are available throughout the internet to better understand the game. Crushing the opponent can be done by paying attention to the radar often. As one continue to play, a habit of paying attention to the radar without taking the eyes off the screen can be achieved. A player, although paying attention to the radar, must hide himself/herself from it because other players will see his/her movements. Shooting an opponent will make a blip in the radar while sneaking up and knifing him/her will not cause the radar to blip.
There may be instances when showing up in the radar may be inevitable so a plan should be in place prior to exposing oneself. When killing someone, make sure to hide as soon as possible after killing an opponent or when there is a spy plane, hide in a place where nobody can sneak up from behind until the spy plane wears off or is shot down. Moving sideways while shooting can make one likely to ditch attacks and for more accurate shots standing still makes the most accurate shots. Kneeling will considerably increase accuracy, however kneeling while moving will only increase kickback significantly. It is best to kneel and stay put or if there is really a need to move, get up and move.
A player should not sprint then pull out his/her gun because this has some delay. Chances are the player will be killed even before he/she can pull out his/her gun. A player should also avoid open areas. He/she must hide on the outskirts and wait for an opponent to cross. The trigger of flag grenades must be held down for a few seconds before letting go because this will start the timer off and will explode sooner after it is thrown off. Learning to bounce the grenade off walls will also kill opponents who are hiding.
Some more Black Ops tips are: A player must also learn the customization options, how to get the weapons and armor right to stay alive in the game. He/she must also learn how to use the motion sensor as this will help him/her locate the enemies. Wearing a Flack Jacket will also protect the player from explosions which will allow him/her to stay in the game longer.
One of the great Black Ops tips is to go through the Call of Duty: Black Ops Walkthrough where a player is taught how to do things. The walkthrough also gives out tips on how to play the game. A player can focus more on the game if he/she knows the basics of the game. When a player goes through the walkthrough, he/she can be familiar with how and when to use the weapons and how to get the hidden intels thus playing can be more fun and enjoyable.
