Also,  I often get killed by one or two shots, while it 'seems' I'm hitting my opponent half a dozen times and he doesn't go down.  Must point out here that I'm not much of a hard-core gamer, only really play GTA, and have only just got into MP so I'm very much what you guys call a n00b.  So is it because I'm completely sh*te at this game, or could/should I be doing something different to improve my kill-rate.

Sometimes it seems to have tiny lags and the point are not updated. Or you shoot down health and armour of the enemy but he kills you then with one shot.
But other time I can kill an other with one headshot.
The best method is much training. Play one week every day 10 hours.
I recommand Rank mode: Team Deathmatch.
Be fast, allways on moving and looking for cover. Find pickups which are near of you: Armour, MG, SMG
Or catch a car if you see one to can pickup faster the items. Be careful to drive with car into the fight.
Make shure to get the better MG and SMG,.(there two kinds, a light version and a strong version, look in ammu shop)
With the strong MG you have the advantage to can hit from more far distance, use it. Aim allways to the head while moving sidewards.
Important are the kills which you made. Its not important how often you have been killed.
But if you die because of other reasons, e.g. you explode your self with rocketlouncher, you loose 100 points

Thanks Zaz, some good tips there.

Then of course there's my piss-poor hand-eye coordination to work on, but I don't think anyone else can help me with that.

I'm confused as to how you create your own matches? I want to know how because I'm tired of getting stuck with the preferences of another person.

I think on 360 you do it during single player in your phone, not exactly sure where you go in your phone to do it though.

Near - you see enemy blips when they are near to you

Far - you see enemy blips when they are far from you

Team - you see only your team blips

Leader - You only see the team which is in the lead (played this once, pretty sure that's what it means)

None/All - obviously no blips or all blips

SuperJude, once again, thank you. I've learned more about this game from you then any
net search or user manual.

You should check and see if Rockstar is hiring!

So speaking of blips, what is your preference? I've been used to all blips, but have found myself in
a few games where they were near or far, but I didn't understand which was which so I got snuck
up on alot. Never been in blips all off. Can't imagine why some people like that, but to each his own.

Honestly, I like blips set to ALL. I like my action fairly fast. While Blips FAR can also be pretty entertaining, it's a different type of game, more crouching/creeping.

FAR seems to work better (for me) when I'm playing with an experienced crowd, mainly from here, otherwise people just quit out.

ALL is simple, and some claim it takes little skill but regardless, it takes the mystery out of where to find your next kill.

Now if you're playing Sniper Rifles, FAR or better, NONE is the way to go, especially at the Airport or Prison.

A couple of questions if anyone wants to take a stab at them.

I have searched the forum and the interwebs and I can't seem to find the info.

Call me stupid, I don't care. I just want to know.

Is there a list anywhere of which weapons are available for the each of the weapons settings in multiplayer?
What does "standard" include? I know I could figure this out in game, but I would like to know the exact
availability before I set the game up.

How do people enter the message "Player A wants to kick Player B" when it appears in the upper right screen
during game play?

Extra credit bonus trivia:
How many seconds before a cooked grenade goes off? I guessed about 7. but in the heat of battle I'm not
really counting.

How many seconds before a car blows up after catching fire? I've been able to drive around for what
seems like 15 seconds looking for health icon, or driving into a group of players to have them join me
in the afterlife.

thanks man.

I was playing around with grenades testing it out. It seemed I could hold one for about six seconds. not
sure if lag comes into play or not.

all I know is it's dangerous when you play with grenades. it's all fun and games til someone blows themselves to bits! suicidal.gif

As far as the cellphone, I guess I have to add people as friends first to be in my phonebook? maybe I'm just
an idiot.... lol.gif

No dude, all the people INGAME will be listed in your cell under PHONEBOOK.

Here you have the options to CALL for a one to one conversation (useful for planning), the MUTE/UNMUTE function (useful for... um... MUTING annoying people/wannabe rappers) and the KICK function. Once you've kicked somebody you need the majority of the room to follow suit to kick said person.

When I attained a rank of 5, my money earned statements went wacky. One game I had $450,000 to earn, the other I had $130,000 to earn. The lower number was correct, because it kept going down.

I think on 360 after an update a while ago, you modify those options through your phone somehow.

yeah, there's a new option in the phone called "preferences". you choose what settings you prefer before you join any lobbies, then it will only put you in games with the settings you chose. if you're in the lobby and wish to change any of the grayed-out settings, you have to leave the lobby and change it in your phone. unless you're in party mode. there, you can change the settings in your phone before you bring your team into a lobby.

The highest rank is 10.
