MW3 Callsigns – Top 10 Titles in Modern Warfare 3
The coolest Titles you can get for your Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Callsign. Or can you?
Your MW3 Callsign is the means by which you tell other players what kind of MW3 player you are and how good you are, and the Title is the most prominent, most important part of your Callsign. But which Titles are the coolest?
Many Titles just tell other players that you play Modern Warfare 3 a lot, while others tell them that you’re prepared to spend time doing some dumb, pointless stuff just to unlock a stupid little picture on your profile. These aren’t the Titles you want.
You want the ones that can’t be obtained without doing something cool. They aren’t necessarily the hardest, and they don’t necessarily have the best names or pictures, but they are the coolest…
The hardest Title to get in Modern Warfare 2 was Dictator, which required you to empty an entire clip from an LMG without missing. It was so hard that Infinity Ward elected not to bring it back again in MW3, so the closest thing you’ve got to it now is Surgical, which requires doing the same thing but with an assault rifle. It’s still tough, but it’s doable, especially if you use the MK14, which is accurate, powerful and has only 20 bullets per magazine.
Obviously, you can make this one easier for yourself by choosing Killstreak rewards that come from three, four and five kills but still, even getting three kills in ten seconds isn’t exactly easy. And it’s not just about the skill required, it’s about the feeling you get from invoking all your special powers in one fell swoop.
We can’t remember if there is a scene in Hard Target in which Jean-Claude Van Damme (sporting one of the finest mullets of all time) actually shoots two people dead while in mid-air, and we weren’t allowed to watch it all the way through during work time in order to check. But we’re pretty sure it’s the kind of thing JCVD would do and therefore we’re pretty sure this Title is named after that movie. And it’s a cool movie (because of, and not despite, the mullet).
There is no single, objective measure of pure skill in Call Of Duty, but Kill/Death Ratio is about as close to one as it’s got. And while just managing it once isn’t that big of a deal, you still have to be at least half-decent and be on top form to get 5:1 in a match.
If your opponents’ team is dumb enough then this needn’t be that hard to get, but it’s still really cool just because of the idea of it. What better way is there to impress your total dominance upon the enemy than by wiping all of them out in just a few seconds?
Friends With Benefits
Not that hard if you have a friend willing to cooperate with you, but it ranks highly in the cool stakes because it’s a funny, and sometimes devastating, way to attack. It should be the ally with the semtex stuck to him that gets the Title though – he’s the one running up to enemies and exploding, and that’s what’s cool.
Get hurt, but not killed, by enemies five times in a row without dying. That is undoubtedly an action hero thing to do, and pretty tough to pull off in Call Of Duty too. Were this Halo or something else where you get shields then it’d be simple, but it generally only takes a few hits to get a kill in Call Of Duty so it’s rare to get hit and survive to the point of full recovery.
I’ve never killed an enemy with a crate in any Call Of Duty game, but I have killed myself in this way many times. That doesn’t count though, so this is a very hard Title to get. You’re basically depending on an enemy being stupid enough to stand on or very near your package’s marker flare, or else just being very, very unlucky. If and when it happens though, you know it’ll be a moment you’ll treasure forever.
…The Harder They Fall
Not to be confused with the Modern Warfare 2 Achievement of the same name, this Title is earned for killing the top player 5 times in a row and isn’t necessarily that hard if you happen to be playing against a bunch of opponents who all suck. But this is still the coolest Title because it sums up what Call Of Duty multiplayer is all about – owning other gamers. And the more confident and skilled the player you’re owning, the greater the sense of ownage.
