Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package strategy guide


Salvage is small and fast. Use a submachine gun, shotgun, or an unscoped assault rifle. Keep your gun raised as often as possible, and avoid running through tight passage ways. There's nothing wrong with walking - slow and steady, slow and steady!

Part of the map is seen below. The "skate park" on the left consists of a bunch of concrete tubes.

The dangerous passageway we've marked out is a narrow gap between piles of junk, and anyone in the building south west of it can pick you off while you run through, so keep your eye on the window.

Running through the tubes in the "skate park" is also dangerous. Keep your weapon up, because someone is probably either directly behind you, or directly in front of you, you just haven't seen them yet...

The tubes are divided from the area north east of them by a highly defensible wall. People run through the little door all the time, but it's a terrible idea. You can see the door in the screen above. From the other side, there's a great camping spot, if you're a bastard.

It's easy to get up there, just jump.

Salvage is not a very complex map, you just need to stay on your toes, and know where to look for campers. Watch out for idiots hiding in the dog house.

Have any tips of your own? Drop some knowledge bombs in the comments!

    To get into the dog house with a riot shield is to prone-it, then crouch with your riot toward the door and you can catch id iots with your throwing knife. And you'll be pretty good on protection from the front.

    man I don't see why I should give Dan Amrich and Bobby Kotik more money when they laid off the people who started infinity ward.(just kidding Dan) Also why spend money on that game when Bad Company 2 is a waaaay better game?

    Good job, guys. Supporting a rip-off is totally worth learning where to camp in a few new maps.
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - April 4, 2010 9:04 p.m.

    one last thing is play like its parkour. go in & out windows, off ledges, jump on boxs the crazier u get the better u do, just make sure not to get hung up on any walls(practice practice!!!!). study levels jump around with commando no fall damage!!!! I litterally normally kill my self if i dont have it on. nothing is as funny as falling off a huge ledge and knifing a person and then knifing his buddies he was following. also study backways around!! it may take longer to get from point a to b but no one will know when u get there. also if playing against campers simply running straight in on a camp site u can easly catch team off gaurd and kill the whole team ive done this hundreds of times.
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - April 4, 2010 8:48 p.m.

    also if u use the sheild u can quickly throw a blade at sumone without letting ur gaurd down people never expect a flying blade. and if u dont want to use the sheild switch for a smg of sum time i use the ump45 with rapid fire. u can actually get sum distance with this weapon. i have 3 different builds just for different situations using just a knife primarly. <3 tacs!!!!!!
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - April 4, 2010 8:42 p.m.

    44 mag is my fav easy to get tac since premade set has and a knife kill counts as a 44 kill. on average im well over kills to death ratio 2-3 to 1 ratio. not bad for just messing around. plus no one ever expects a crazy player to run straight up and knife. it is highly effective. Its perfect for everything execpt hardcore matchs generally speaking. u have to change sensetivity to high to insane depending on the individual.
  • bl00dyvalen7ine - April 4, 2010 8:35 p.m.

    most messed up class evar..... riot sheild a pistol with a tac. smoke and a throwing knife. marathon lightweight and commando. run around knifing people in there faces!!!!!!

    @ TURbo Another great tip, is unloading the clip when turning the corner in hotspots. No need to aim down the sights. Works 95% of the time. This works. Also, as soon as you come out of spawn, turn left and fire a rocket or noob tube over the short wall there where a man is usually peeking over it, perched on a dumpster. kaboom...yer d.e.d. ded.
  • Ror444 - April 4, 2010 5:39 a.m.

  • penguinsrule3 - April 3, 2010 9:55 p.m.

    Sniping on salvage is surprisingly effective
  • idlemindkiller - April 3, 2010 6:41 p.m.

  • Persona - April 3, 2010 3:53 p.m.

    If I can be a bastard I might actually consider getting this map pack. Being a bastard on MW2 is always entertaining as heck >:D

  • philipshaw - April 3, 2010 11:07 a.m.

    I won't be buying this, it doesn't even come out until april 30th on PSN anyway
  • frmonth - April 3, 2010 10:25 a.m.

    I bought this even thought the price is a rip off for the amount of content your actually getting (only three new maps). However saying that the new maps are actually very good, I'm enjoying them alot and it has added alot more enjoyment when ever I pop online.
