This page contains tips and tricks for success in Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer.
Right off the bat, players will have to choose between five Divisions: Airborne, Armored, Expeditionary, Infantry, and Mountain. Each Division will start out with a set weapon and ability.
- Do not worry about the weapon as you can equip any weapon to any class as you progress.
- Make sure to read the unique abilities for each Division. For example, if you are a player who enjoys not being restricted by sprint fatigue, choose the Airborne Division.
- As you eventually unlock every Division for multiplayer, make sure to play with the Division and weapon you’d like to level up. Level ups include more attachments for weapons and more abilities for Divisions.
Basic Training is passive abilities that you can add to help any Division. Each Basic Training can help you customize the way you fight and play in multiplayer.
- Unless you are a master at Call of Duty multiplayer, it can be tough to stay alive long enough to unlock scorestreaks in game. Using the Basic Training Requisitions allows you to maintain progress torward your scorestreaks. The downside of this Basic Training is that scorestreaks will take longer to earn and can only be used once so equip the harder to earn scorestreaks.
- On the flip side, if you enjoy taking the challenge of unlocking scorestreaks before dying, try the Ordnance Basic Training for cheaper scorestreaks. Make sure to use the Care Package scorestreak with this Basic Training as you can reroll whatever you earn from the Care Package.
- Find yourself loving the sniper role but having trouble defending yourself with a pistol? Use the Rifleman Basic Training to equip a SMG or other weapon when in close quarter engagements. Note that your second primary will not be able to have any attachments on it.
- If you would like to use a Basic Training that assists your overall neutral game, the Inconspicuous or Scoped Basic Training abilities are two of the best. Being able to move around quietly or have overall less flinch can tremendously improve your chances of survival in multiplayer.
Keeping a constant eye on your radar is vital in all Call of Duty multiplayer games but here are some other tips about map awareness you might find useful.
- Be aware that whenever you fire your weapon, you will be exposed on opponent’s radars. Keeping this in mind, make sure to keep moving and don’t stay in the same area for too long if you’re firing off shots. Using a suppressor will mask you on radars.
- Pay attention to your teammate’s deaths. Skulls mark the location of fallen teammates so be extra cautious around those areas as you can bet the player that just finished them off is waiting around somewhere close.
- Make sure to listen to the game. Call of Duty: WWII has implemented a feature in which teammates and enemies will yell out vital information during the match. Teammates will call out the location of seen opponents and opponents will yell out when under attack. Using these audio cues along with footsteps can provide much more information than a simple radar can.
- Players will always spawn on the two opposite sides of a map. If players push too far into a spawn and control it, the game will force those players to spawn on the opposite side of the map. Keep this in mind when trying to defeat opponents while they spawn, they might be spawning behind your allies.
Call of Duty: WWII has a whole arsenal of new weapons to try out but here are some of the best weapons in terms of optimal kill time.
- BAR: The standard issue BAR rifle could possibly be the best weapon in multiplayer. Capable of killing opponents in three bullets and a easy-to-manage hip fire spray, there really is no downside to the BAR.
- STG44: Another great rifle, the STG44 has a very high rate of fire that can be easily controlled when more attachments are unlocked for the weapon.
- Lee Enfield: The Lee Enfield is a solid sniper rifle capable of one shotting opponents from the torso up. Equip the ACOG sight and reduced sway attachments to it and it becomes a beast in the right hands.
Unless you are using certain Basic Training skills, you will spawn with one Equipment to use. Use this equipment wisely as they can net you more kills.
- S-Mine 44: A deployable mine that kills enemies when stepped on, make sure to deploy this in hot areas and spawn locations for maximum efficiency.
- MK 2 Fragmentation: A basic frag grenade, this weapon can be bounced off hard surfaces and cooked to detonate faster on release. If you know opponents are holed up in a room, pull the pin and let the frag cook for a bit before throwing it into the room.
- Throwing Knife: This knife will kill upon contact but it also can be picked up after thrown! Make sure to keep track of where you throw the knife and simply walk over it to pick it up again.
- Drop-Shotting is the act of going prone or crouching during a gunfight in order to confuse your opponents and make yourself harder to hit. Engage with an opponent, shoot a couple bullets, then quickly go prone on the floor and finish them off.
- Jump-Shotting is the act of jumping around a corner and shooting an opponent on the way down. Use this tactic instead of walking around a corner to catch opponents off-guard and make yourself harder to hit.
- While sprinting, hold your crouch button to lunge and dive on the floor. This move is very effective to get to cover faster and dodge grenades. You can also dive toward your opponents and shoot at them while diving to really confuse them.
