A lot of times while playing Modern Warfare 2 online, I find myself torn between certain choices in Perks, Deathstreaks, etc. Luckily, while playing this I have devised a few ways in which I can implement a few of the well-known Perks and Deathstreaks into my strategy, without actually having them equipped. I have named these, The Homemade Tactics. These are tactics that most any player can execute with ease, and they may even help you in the decision-making process when creating your custom class.
Homemade Scavenger: A commonly chosen Blue Perk, to use the homemade version of this perk, all the user needs to do is kill an enemy who is using the same class of weapon as you (i.e Using a Mini-Uzi, kill an enemy who has a P90 or other Sub Machine Gun equipped). After killing them, running over their corpse quickly enough will give you extra ammo for your main weapon. Not as good as the original but some may find this useful.
Homemade Sleight of Hand: My soon to be favorite Blue Perk, this speeds up the reload time for the user’s weapon. To add a homemade little twist, start reloading a weapon and hit the Aim Down Sight button. This only works for certain weapons though. An alternate option for Light Machine Gun users is using the One Man Army Pro Perk to switch into the same class since some LMG’s take longer than 3 seconds to reload.
Homemade Martyrdom: Probably my most frequented Homemade Tactic, simply ready or “cook” either a Frag or Semtex grenade (or Claymore in some rare cases) when entering a room full of enemy personnel or in cases in which you are sure you will lose a fight. Upon death your character will drop the grenade, just as he would if the Martyrdom Deathstreak we’re active.
Homemade Overkill: This is definitely the simplest HMT to perform and is a classic Perk from MW1. While n the heat of battle or in between battles, simply pick up a fallen enemy or comrade’s weapon and swap it out for the weapon you are currently holding. This is perfect for when your run out of bullets or if you are unsatisfied with you secondary weapon.
