I. Campaign

In the campaign you play as two soldiers in two different companies. Sergeant

Soap MacTavish in the SAS, and Sergeant Paul Jackson in the USMC. They start

off on separate paths but later their stories intertwine with each other. The

campaign is single player only which is stretched out across 21 missions. A

few of the missions aren't exactly missions but cut scenes. There are 4

difficulty settings in the campaign. Easy, Normal, Hardened, and Veteran. You

have infinite regenerative health. It regenerates when you take cover and

don't get shot for some time. You have a set equipment set up, but you can

pick up more ammo if you find the same gun or same ammo type from another gun.

There are some missions with extra special grenades and other equipment. The

missions are set up as so:

II. Arcade Mode

A new mode in the game is the arcade mode. The arcade mode is unlocked after

you beat the game. In this you can choose from "Full Challenge" or "Level

Challenge" and play the campaign levels or the full campaign and earn points.

These points will be added up at the end of each level (or if you run out of

time/lives) and be displayed on the leader boards to compete against other

people around the world. Depending on where you shoot the enemy, you are given

points. Multiples of 5 in the range of 5 to 100 points. Grenades give you a

certain amount of points, as do grenade launchers and knives. If you go on a

kill streak within a certain amount of time from each kill then you get a

multiplayer. X2-X8. Once you reach X8 then the music changes and you have a

certain amount of time before the kill streak resets. You also get points for

blowing up cars or certain objectives. At the end of the level the game adds

in your time remaining along with the number of lives you earned in that level.

You have a set amount of lives and can get more if you kill more enemies and

reach a checkpoint. You also get a multiplier on the final score depending on

the difficulty. X1.5 for normal, X3 for Hardened, and X4 for Veteran. If you

go through an entire level on the Hardened and Veteran difficulties then you

get an extra X2 multiplayer before the difficulty multiplier.

III. Multiplayer

There are a few modes in multiplayer. The first is split screen where you can

play against friends on the same console and same screen with preset classes.

However, you cannot play on all maps. You can customize the settings of the

match in various ways such as headshots only for a kill, double health,

hardcore mode, old school mode and more.

There is also system link to hook up many systems and play just like split

screen, but on different screens.

In the multiplayer you can play against other people around the world on the

same system you're playing online. Meaning xbox 360 to xbox 360 or PS3 to PS3

only, no cross consoles. There is a private match option to play with friends

using your created classes and customized settings for matches. Or you can

find a match in one of the 14 play lists. These play lists are:


Team Deathmatch - Straight up Team Deathmatch. Use teamwork to kill

enemy players and reach the score limit (750 points/75 Kills). 6-12 players.

Each kill is 10 points and an assist is 2 points.

Mercenary Team Deathmatch - Same as team deathmatch however you get set

up with random teams and no parties are allowed.

Free For All - Straight up Deathmatch. Every man for himself. Kill

Everyone. 4-8 players. Each kill is 5 points with no assists. First to 25

kills/125 Points wins.

Domination - 3 flags in the level must be captured. Your team gets

points for having control of a flag. The more flags your team holds, the more

points you gain. 6-12 players. Each kill is 5 points, assists are 1 point.

Capturing a flag is 15 points. The Game ends when the flag capture points

reach 200 for one of the teams.

Ground War - Big team games - Team Deathmatch and Domination. 8-18

players. First team to 1000 Points/100 Kills or to 200 points in domination wins.

Sabotage - A neutral bomb is in the center of the level and teams fight

to destroy the enemy team's objective. The bomb carrier can be seen by all

players. First team to successfully bomb the enemy objective wins. However if

nobody bombs the other team's objective after the 20 minute time limit then

there is a 90 second sudden death. No respawns and the first team to kill the

other team wins. 6-12 players. Each kill is 5 points. Assists are 1 point.

If you die you have to wait 7 seconds to respawn

Headquarters - A neutral base to capture is marked in the level. Each

team fights to capture it. Capture and hold it to gain 5 points every 5

seconds. The team that holds the HQ doesn't respawn. 6-12 players. Each kill

is 5 points but adds more points per kill when holding a HQ. Assists are 1

point. Capturing the HQ is 15 points plus the 5 points everyone gets once the

base is captured.

Search and Destroy - No Respawning, defend and destroy one of the two

objectives. Just like sabotage, but nobody can see where the bomb is with the

animated bomb sign. 6-12 players. Each kill is 50 points, Assists are 25

points, and planting the bomb is 50 points.

Team Tactical - Small team based games. Team Deathmatch, Domination,

Headquarters, Sabotage, and Search and Destory. 4-6 players

Hardcore Team Deathmatch - Team Deathmatch with: no points popping up

when you get a kill, no kill cam when you die, no HUD, no crosshairs, wait to

respawn (anywhere between 1 and 16 seconds), minimal health, no health

regeneration. Friendly fire on, if you kill a team mate 2 times you get 15

seconds added on to your respawn and die instantly. Each team kill after that

adds 15 seconds and is an instant death. 6-12 players. Same points as TDM.

Hardcore Search and Destroy - Search and Destroy with hardcore rules.

6-12 players.

Old School Free For All - No classes. Weapons and perks are pickups,

health increased, no health regeneration, and jumps are higher. 4-8 players.

FFA points and score limit is the same.

Cage Match - 1v1 deathmatch. 20 XP for each kill and first to 10 kills


Hardcore Headquarters - Headquarters under hardcore rules. Once you die

you instantly respawn. Hardcore rules and headquarter rules can be read in the

other playlist descriptions.


During the matches you can get 3 different kill streak bonuses. When calling

an air strike, the kills you get will be added to your kill streak. If you die

before you call a helicopter, the helicopter's kills will be added to your next

kill streak unless you die once more. After the initial 7 the game says 10

Kill Streak, 15 Kill Streak, and onward for every 5 kill streaks until you die.

They apply to all playlists.

UAV Recon: After 3 kills you get UAV for 30 seconds which shows everyone

on the radar who doesn't have a UAV Jammer.

Airstrike: After 5 kills you get to place an air strike anywhere on the

map. Three fly overs of bombs depending where you drop it.

Helicopter Support: After 7 kills you get a helicopter which is

controlled by a computer. It kills enemies with a machine gun and can be shot



The Barracks is another section of the online multiplayer which allows you to

create a clan tag with 1-4 characters. However, some words have been banned.

There are challenges you can complete to gain XP rewards and weapon add ons.

The leader boards is another section in the barracks that allows you to view

your Score, Wins, Kills, and Accuracy against your friends or everyone in the

world on that particular console/system.

V. Create a Class

Also in online multiplayer is Create a Class which allows you to create

customized classes with weapons and perks you unlocked as you progress. You

unlock weapons and perks as you rank up. You rank up by gaining experience in

online play lists. There are 55 levels that you can rank up to.

Prestige Mode

Prestige Mode unlocks after level 55. You have to go to the barracks to

activate it. When entering prestige mode EVERYTHING is started over from level

1 with the exception of the play lists, clan tag, and barracks leaderboards

(challenges are locked again). You gain XP and rank up again but you get a

special icon next to your rank. You can prestige 10 times.

Creating a Class

When creating a class you get to choose one primary weapon, one side arm, a

special grenade, and three different perks. However, certain perks fall under

perk 1, perk 2, and perk 3 sections. When adding a grip to a LMG/Shotgun or a

Grenade Launcher to an Assault Rifle it takes up the perk 1 slot. You also get

one frag grenade automatically. Commonly used classes are as such:

VI. Weapons

In multiplayer all players have 100 points of health. Each bullet for each gun

has a set amount of damage. I will give the max amount of damage a bullet from

each gun can do in MPPB (Max Power Per Bullet). Stopping power increases the

damage and juggernaut decreases it by 40%. Range is another big factor by each

weapon. The more range, the better the bullet damage stays the same over long

distances. For instance, shotguns have great power but extremely low range.

Sniper Rifles have very high range and power, making them almost always one

shot kills. Headshots of all guns increase damage by 40%, but with sniper

rifles they are increased 50%. Shotguns do not have damage multipliers. On

sniper rifles the body and neck also gives damage multipliers. All guns have

three mags of ammo total, except for LMGs which use two.

Assault Rifles:

Only assault rifles can use Grenade Launchers. They can also use Red Dot

Sight/Silencer/ACOG Scope. Assault Rifles are best for medium to long range.

They have medium bullet penetration through walls and nice firepower.

are two versions, the GP-25 found on the AK-47 and the M203 found on all other

GLs. Default unlocked.

ACOG Scope - Replaces iron sights with a scope. When aiming down the sights, the

player's perspective will zoom in and field of view will be reduced. When

increased. Sniper Rifles range is reduced with ACOG scopes. Unlocked after

150 kills on Assault Rifles, SMGs, LMGs, and after 100 Kills on Sniper Riles.

The cheat menu is unlocked after you beat the game under the options menu, and

shows how many enemy Intel are in the mission you are playing. Cheats are

unlocked by collecting enemy Intel, which look like laptop computers, that are

hidden throughout the campaign. Once you collect that Intel it will be gone

forever on that account, even if you delete your game. Using cheats disables

Achievements. Here is a video from you tube to find all 30 intels.

VIII. Difference in the Wii and DS Versions

Wii Version Differences:

First off let me note the game contains all the same weapons and perks from the

original COD4. There are a few differences since the wii is a lot weaker than

the PS3/360/PC. They lowered the maximum number of players to 10. So there is

no ground war mode but there is a new mode called "Squadmate" which was in WAW

Wii version. There is now host migration and fully customizable and remap able

controls. Players can now hold their guns tilted sideways for smaller one

handed guns by twisting the Wii Remote from left to right. The Wii Zapper is

compatible with the game. There is no Kill Cam, Wii Motion Plus, or Offline

Multiplayer other than Squadmate Mode. The cheats for single player are also

different. Ragtime Warfare was replaced with a new "Paintball Gun" cheat, and

a Bad Year now requires you to get a headshot, or the enemy will not spawn tires.

DS Version Differences:

The DS version of the game allows the player to assume the roles of several

anonymous soldiers, who are either affiliated with the British S.A.S. or U.S.

Marines. Unlike the console and PC version of Call of Duty 4, players do not

directly impact the outcome of the war. Instead of going after the main

antagonists of the overall plot (the Four Horsemen: Russian and his allies),

the playable characters in the DS version participate in minor missions, such

as escaping from an American military base in as it is attacked by enemy

forces, or raiding two cargo ships in the stormy black and dark Baltic Sea

which may be carrying nuclear materials. The DS version focuses less on the

main attempts to end the conflict and more on the supporting role of the

various other soldiers who played a part in the war. The player can also be a

gunner on a AC 130-Spectre Gunship as are in the regular console/computer

version of Call of Duty 4.
