Call of Duty Tip #4: Don't Stand Directly on Your Care Package Smoke

The first time I had a long enough kill streak to get a care package in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, I was unbelievably excited.  I also had no idea what the heck I was doing.  So, after tossing the smoke signal, I stood directly on the billowing smoke.  Who knew helicopters dropping packages would so accurate?

As as result, I was crushed and my care package was subsequently stolen by an opposing player.  The moral of the story is when you toss your smoke signal, it's a good idea to:
  • Do it near a flag you've captured (if playing Domination).
  • Do it when a friend can watch your back.
  • Find a place that doesn't have any direct lines of sight.
  • Even consider throwing a smoke grenade/Willy Pete to make it harder for enemies to pick you off.
  • Not stand directly on the smoke.
The following clip shows me getting credit for an Assisted Suicide on Grid near Alpha.  If I had to guess, one opponent is trying to share care package crates with a teammate to complete a challenge for the Hardline Pro perk in Call of Duty: Black Ops.  It's probably a SAM Turret and a genuine care package crate getting dropped off.  I'm pretty sure that dude would've gotten himself killed even if I hadn't started shooting at him.
