When it came to designing this year's Call of Duty, Infinity Ward knew this was not going to be a big challenge.

With all the backlash Call of Duty has received in the past few years, something special was needed in order to revamp the franchise to be as successful as it once was... from this Modern Warfare was born.

Oh and not to forget an all-new game mode - Gunfight. Which has now quickly become a favourite amongst fans.


Bullets flying, bodys dropping and the pressure of being better than the opposite two.

Teamwork makes the dream work

It goes without saying - playing as a team will give you greater success rates! Why? Because you are able to communicate, work together and outplay the enemy.

Play together - Not apart


If you are playing Gunfight as a solo and your teammate does not have a mic, well... it's going to be a lot harder to win those crucial rounds.

RealSport suggests when playing Gunfight, you make sure you are playing with a friend, preferably someone who knows how to play Call of Duty, else you will have to do all the work!

Familiarise Guns and Attachments

Gunfight is one of a few game modes in Call of Duty Modern Warfare that doesn't require you to make loadouts to use. This is because Gunfight generates different unique classes every couple of rounds.

How does this affect me winning, you may be asking? Being able to use all the different classes that you come across can be difficult - especially if you only stick to using a couple of different guns in other game modes.

RealSport suggests when playing make sure you are getting familiar with how each gun feels and it's recoil.

This will allow you to become a better player with all weapons and finish on top!

Learn the Maps

All the maps that have been made for Gunfight are considerably smaller than those designed for the traditional 6v6. Being able to know where to run and where not to will help when it comes to winning.

  • King
  • Stack
  • Speedball
  • Docks
  • Hill
  • Gulag Showers

Get to know every nook and cranny.

Make sure you are not vulnerable to getting killed of spawn, be aware of where the enemy are spawning and position yourself effectively.

Most Health Wins

Not all Gunfight rounds end with both players dying; if you are able to out live the timer, this will then lead to the players left remaining fighting for the chance to capture a flag mid map.

If this flag is not captured by anyone, then the team with the most health wins!

This is why it's vital to ensure that your team has the most health! To do this, you have to hit and not be hit. If you are able to gain a couple of shots at the beginning of the round then the power is in your hands.

Bare this in mind before you go rushing around - play tactically!

Use Lethals and Tacticals

When playing Gunfight, many players forget to use both of their Lethals and Tacticals.

BE SMART: Using your Lethals can give you the upper hand


Using these will give you a competitive advantage over your opposition, potentially causing damage. REMEMBER, you gain them again every round you play so please, please use them. It really can be a game-changer.

Combining each of these tips will turn you into a beast when it comes to playing Gunfight. Having the knowledge of when to push and when not to is crucial.
