<a href=”http://www.primagames.com/games/call-duty-ghosts”>Call of Duty: Ghosts</a>’ Hunted game mode is what you would expect if you took Scavenger from Battlefield and mixed it with Team Deathmatch in Call of Duty. When the round begins, players must race to the location of randomly dropped crates. Not only is the location random, but so is the weapon it will supply you with. Each crate has a lifespan, with a countdown timer ticking away over top of it. Should you miss out on one crate, don’t worry, there will be plenty more throughout the round. The game ends either when one team reaches the 65 kill limit, or if the game clock runs out. Should time expire, the team with the most kills will emerge victorious.
Finding a Weapon
When the game begins, you’re armed only with the .44 Magnum and a very limited supply of ammo. Your first goal is to sprint to the closest crate and grab a weapon. If for some reason you fall behind, watch your approach. There could be opposing players camping the crate, waiting for some easy kills. Try to take note of your team’s presence in the area. If they are all gathered around the crate and none of them are dying, go snag a weapon.
If you’re not able to grab a weapon from the initial crate drop, it’s time to go into stealth mode. Get a kill with your .44 Magnum, and if the player had a weapon from the crate, you can take it off their dead body. Of course, it may be easier to cautiously go where the action is. Where there are lots of people, there are bodies. Where there are bodies, there are weapons to be picked up.
Armed and Dangerous
Now that you have a weapon, it’s time to get to the fun part, picking on players that don’t have one. One of the easiest ways to rack up the kills is to hang out near the crates. There’s always people who either didn’t get a weapon, or died and spawned back into the game with their .44 Magnum. That’s right, when you die you lose whatever weapons you gathered from the crate. Of course, your window of opportunity is limited for several reasons. First of all, campers are always flushed out before too long, and secondly, the timer on the crate will expire and you’ll have to move on.
The best advice we can give you once you find a weapon is to be methodical. Follow our previous Team Deathmatch guide and stick to the perimeter of the map. Try not to sprint unless you’re moving from cover to cover. The more rushed and frantic you are, the more likely you’re going to make a mistake and lose that hard-earned weapon. Take opportunities that are presented to you, and don’t try to force them. If you find yourself near a dropped crate, go for a couple easy kills on the swarming players. What you don’t want to do is sprint halfway across the map just to camp a crate.
As we mentioned earlier, this game mode takes on many similarities of Team Deathmatch, so keep that in mind. You can’t choose your load out, so there’s no advice to give you on that, but you can choose how you play the game. Good habits and intelligence are far more important than the gun you use when playing Hunted.
