In Multiplayer for Call of Duty: WWII, you'll get to experiment with Divisions and Basic Training skills that offer an array of specialized abilities and traits to mix and match with an arsenal of customizable weapons, lethal and tactical equipment, and an assortment of Scorestreaks to help you and your team on the battlefield.
When you start your career in Multiplayer, you're taken to the Theater in Headquarters and presented with five Division filmstrips to watch. Choose a Division to begin customizing your Soldier and preparing your loadouts. Learn more about each Division.
After choosing a Division, you can start building your Soldier's profile in tabs.
Now that your Soldier is ready for action, it's time to test your combat skills. Open the menu and go to the Find Match tab, then choose a Playlist. The most common Playlist is Public Match, where you can play the following game modes:
While each game mode varies and requires different tactics, Multiplayer at its core is kill or be killed. You must pay attention to what you carry into battle, but it's also imperative to know what to do once you get there.
Learning how to use your weapon is critical. Depending on your weapon of choice and the distance between you and your enemy, you will often need to make split-second decisions on how to engage your foe. Hip firing is best served in close-quarters combat or when using shotguns or automatic weapons. From medium and long ranges, aiming down sights improves your accuracy and your chances of survival, particularly with rifles.
You can improve your aim and make yourself harder to hit by crouching or going prone. Both maneuvers stabilize your weapon, and while you become a smaller target, you sacrifice movement.
There are six basic weapon categories in the Call of Duty: WWII and each one offers an advantage depending on the combat situation.
Weapons in each category vary by damage, accuracy, and reload speed, among others, so it might take some experimentation before you find the weapon you like the best.
You can also choose from a variety of Tactical and Lethal items to carry into Multiplayer matches.
Guns and equipment are awesome, but sometimes you want a little extra firepower. As you take out enemies and complete objectives, you rack up points to use toward Scorestreaks. Dying resets your Scorestreak points, but any Scorestreak you earn remains available if you die.
Choose three Scorestreaks to call in during matches.
