Call of Duty Tip #1: Repetition Can Be Good and Bad

I'm going to kick off my series of tips for bad Call of Duty players BY a bad Call of Duty player.  The tips are not in any kind of order of importance.  I'll probably be presenting them as I find appropriate clips I can upload.  Without further ado, here's the first Call of Duty: Black Ops clip:

The tip here is that repetition can be both very good or very bad.  You'll notice that I got nearly the exact same kill four times in this match of Domination on Summit.  You'll also notice that three of the four kills were on the same opposing player.  Repetition got me a bunch of kills and it also got the opposing player a bunch of deaths.  I'd also like/hate to admit, that I was similarly killed multiple times trying to secure Charlie.

In an ideal world, notice how your opponents behave.  They might get fixated on something and present a pattern where you can get a bunch of easy kills.  Similarly, please notice if you keep trying to take the same flag or if you keep walking down the same alley and keep getting killed --  Mix it up!

In the immortal words of George W. Bush, "There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee -- that says, fool me once, shame on ... shame on you. Fool me ... you can't get fooled again."
