Let me tell you a little story/experience I had while playing Modern Warefare 3 with a few couple of my friends. We were in a kill confirm lobby, practically running the place. My friends and I were talking like there was no tomorrow, and making jokes left in right! It was such a fun lobby, in fact we had an old clan member in there who happen to be on the other time most of the time. This old clan member thought he would cause some problems in our clan so we kicked him out of the party and talked about him in the lobby while he was there. It was fun because at the end of the day we were all friends just messing with each other. This old clan member was known for camping but he was good at it.
As we were in this lobby, playing game after game and using Game Chat not Party chat, a few people from the lobby jumped in to our conversation. Well long story short, I turned every single player in the lobby against this old clan member. There goal during the game was to “take him out”. This was all for fun but we were laughing when ever someone on our team would yell out ” got him!’. While playing in these games there was a user who used only a Riot Shield and some Knfie`s. He was killing so much, I gave the guy the nickname “Riot Shield”. So through all the conversations we had and all the team kills we got together. I finally asked him a common question!
How did you get so good at Riot Shield? .. He gave me all his secretes it seemed. It was one of the best descriptive conversation Ive ever had with some complete stranger. The night was over and I was tired so I went ahead and got off. The next day I used his advice to see what I could do! I couldn`t believe it but with riot shield you actually need to do some work in order to defend the bullets and explosions coming your way. If you are just walking around with it, your not using it to its fullest potential. A Riot Shield is not the length of your characters body, when enemy’s see the Riot Shield they tend to shoot for the body parts that aren`t covered by the Shield itself. You are in control of this and you need to know how to change the position of your Riot Shield to fit the form of your body.
A great tip while using a Riot Shield and an enemy is shooting your shield with a sub machine gun, try pointing your shield downward. This prevents your characters feet and legs from being shown. Also be sure to be crouching down so that your riot shield fits to your body height. The goal when using the Riot shield is to “distract” and “protect” your other teammates. The Riot shield is the most team related weapon in Modern Warefare 3 and is used for people to work together and gain kill streaks.
Your Class and Perks are everything when using the Riot Shield. As you know the Riot shield is not made for offensive gameplay and gaining kill streaks alone. When using the Riot Shield you are exposed to more close hand to hand battle, and close range firing. When using this you are going to need perks to protect you and your kill streak. A great tactical weapon to use when running around the map with a riot shield would be a knife. They are quick, quiet and actuate. When using the Perk Scavenger, you gain more knifes and won`t run out. This is a must need for a close range weapon when using the Riot Shield. The Next perk that is highly recommend would be Quick Draw or Blast Shield. Quick draw, so you can quickly withdraw your knifes and use them properly. Bast Shield because when people first see an enemy with a riot shield, they are more likely to throw a grenade at you than fire their gun and waste bullets.
As Much as Blast shield is useful, most people feel that it have been powered up a little more, when getting hit with a Flash or Concession it reduces the stun and feeling your character gets affected by. Some players were disappointed with this feature and that is why they usually replace this perk with QuickDraw.
Overall, using the Riot shield is a lot of fun and is something you have to try! You can either use the Riot Shield for Offensive Gameplay or Defensive Gameplay in Modern Warefare 3. This is extremely important and something that can change your Gameplay as well. Get your friends involved with it, take on some hardcore players with your buddy, give him some cover while he goes for the kill! I did it! and highly recommend it!
