Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Maps Strategy Guide

‘Array’ Map Guide

It’s a large snowy map. Since the map is not small, you can stick to the basic strategy for large maps. You can snipe or assault from distance. The map’s hot spot is the central area near the communication tower. You can can directly enter the battlefield or you can flank your enemy from wings. Buildings along the way can provide good cover for camping.

Strategy
You can adopt various strategies in this map. The more common strategy will be to take an assault rifle and shoot from distance. In search and destroy, beware of the flanking paths from the wings of the map. Both the bombing spots are near the central communication station.

If you are playing domination (Capture the flag), you can cover the flag in the base with sniper support. Flag that is almost at the same distance from both the spawns will be crucial as it is difficult to capture.

Classes
Again, best you can do is choose an assault rifle with red dot sight and go with your favorite perks. If you prefer sniping here, than you should use jammer so that you don’t get spotted easily.

For rushers, they can adopt 2 strategies; either they can use jammer and flank enemies or use steady aim with sleight of hand. Perks choice depends on your game style.

‘Cracked’ Map Guide

It’s an urban themed map where you can enjoy SMG or Shotgun as it’s a small map. There are buildings and the main street connects the two spawns.

All the buildings in the map can be used for cover. You can use the windows for better view form above. There are multiple routes through which you can switch between the buildings. So use the one that is quick with less exposure to the enemy.

There is a 3 story broken building with multiple entries. This building will usually be crowded with enemies so you can have some kills in there. You can use the balconies of the building to camp and stop the rushers along the street or those trying to flank you.

Strategy
Since there are many buildings in the map, you should be cautious as you can be shot from any corner of window of any building. Running on the street madly can cause you trouble.

If there are more players (more than 10) then it is better that you wait for your enemy to come to you. The map is good for TDM and Free for all game types while Search and Destroy won’t give much joy as there are hell of camping spots.

Use Flash bangs before you enter any building so that you can avoid any ambush inside.

Classes
SMG’s are best suited in this map. Sleight of  hand with SMG can prove useful. Steady aim is also a good option here. Perks like “Ninja” aren’t going to benefit you much specially in FFA and TDM.

Assault rifles aren’t going to benefit you much unless you are quite a persistent and patient soul. For camping, you can use claymores to cover your back and then use any LMG through windows of any building.

      As shown above on the spawn areas on the map Grid, both A and B bomb sites are located on the wings of the map making it more difficult to flank as the only area to pass the bomb sites is straight through the middle of the map which is the worst place to be as you only get one life per round.
