    Finished COD, online noob question

    Hi All,
    I've never been much of an online gamer but after finishing the COD single player I tried it last night. Bottom like is I suck terribly and in about 5 go around I only had a high of 3 kills.

    Question, when I run around I see the red dots on the map showing the other team, but what are the little ghost faces that don't show on the map but show on the screen? I feel like even when I was creeping, people could pick me off and knew exactly where I was. Any tips?

    Ok, I Googled tips, played Blacklight Retribution and confirmed that I suck at FPS. That is all.

    Yeah I suck at FPS too, lol, don't forget though you generally play against people who only play COD and play it a lot.

    The ghost faces are the markers of where a friendly was killed, if I'm thinking of the same thing you're talking about.

    And I'm by no means AMAZEBALLS at online, but I'm definitely finding myself do worse in Ghosts than previous versions. I'm also finding most of the maps are $#@! too.

    Thanks guys for the response. I stopped by my buddy's restaurant today and while having a cold one at the bar with him I told him how I sucked. He called over one of the waiters that was a young kid and man did he give me the skinny. Talking about knowing spawn spots, weapons, "cheats", it's ridiculous. I may just have to find my own band of $hitty fighters!

    try to watch videos of other people playing, that might help. maybe try some private matches with your friends so they can show you the ropes.

    I'll see if I can get on tonight. As for pizza in Dayton, not me. I'm from Long Island, NY. Vinny Pizza was a nickname my old college football coach gave me and it just stuck.

    I think my friends suck too! We might just be too old now! But I'm definitely going to check out some vids.

    So I still suck at COD, though I am learning some things. The first is that people who spawn trap just ruin the game, and campers are no fun when you spend half the time running around the map looking for them. Just had to vent about last night. But I'm learning the lingo!

    I used to play a lot of BO2 online on 360 but when I tried Ghosts on ps4 I was so bad I couldn't face going on again.

    I get abused by some people, to defend a 0.36 K/D! Though some guys are cool, as long as I'm not on their team :-/

    I always found CoD to be a game I had to switch off chat to enjoy.

    I wouldn't let black light be a confirmation of how good you are. I'm no 2.5 K/D holder, but Blacklight has horrible controls. Not to mention there's a VERYstrong auto aim, making veterans a lot more lethal.

    Personally, I suck at shooters too. On a good day, I may get 15 kills in FFA. But I enjoy FPS games regardless. Just matters how much skill and practice you get in I guess.

    Maybe u should try "local play" and play against bots to learn the maps, weapons and general gameplay. It will be good practice. Also customize your perks so they suit your style of play
    Good luck buddy!

    Thanks man, I do the boys and then get bored wanting the challenge of real people. I did play one round with those awesome guys from last night, they communicate a ton. I'll go on the mic to give heads up on locations etc, but it's tough when no one talks or just spends time singing there demo tape like it's American Idol.

    Yeah I get what u mean, but playing bots will really improve ur aiming.
    I always mute, never met someone online who actually use the mic to communicate with their team. Miss that!

    Yeah, it sucks when people don't talk. If I get killed and know a teammate is behind me, I'll shout out a location to give the guys a heads up. Going on now, maybe lady luck is on my side. 13 kills is my best, tonight it falls.
