You’ll need to get point-blank kills if you want to complete some camo mastery challenges in Modern Warfare 2. Unlike getting longshot kills, earning point-blank kills can be harder to execute in the field. This is because you need to be really close to the enemy, risking yourself being attacked from different angles. If you’re struggling with this challenge, here’s how to get point-blank kills in Modern Warfare 2!
How to Get Point Blank Kills in Modern Warfare 2
To get point-blank kills in Modern Warfare 2, you need to eliminate an enemy in less than five meters. Simply put, you must be extremely close or within melee range of them. Please don’t confuse this with melee kills, as it doesn’t count. Given the range you need to be from your target, we’d recommend you use an SMG, or if you trust your aim, then a shotgun is the way to go.
There are a lot of ways to get point-blank kills. If you’re the type to play it safe, then you can sneak behind a door and wait for someone to go through it. You can finish the kill quickly as soon as a clueless player walks in. This is a great strategy, but it can take a while for someone to pass the place you’re camping.
If you like a bit of challenge and fun, you can use field upgrades and perks. One that will come in handy for a challenge like this is the Dead Silence. This field upgrade allows your footsteps to be temporarily silent, which is excellent to use to flank other players! Pair that with Ghost, which hides your position from UAVs, radars, and heartbeat sensors, and you’ll be almost undetectable. Use these perks to your advantage and flank around buildings to get easy point-blank kills on unsuspecting players.
You can also choose certain game modes and maps with tight spaces to complete this challenge quickly. The Ground War game mode, with its chaotic nature, would be the perfect fit for this. As for the best map for point-blank kills, the Breenbergh Hotel would be your best bet.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is available right now for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
