5 obnoxious ways to be a troll in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

It's your time

The Call of Duty titles are some of the most trollable online games out there. The intensity of the matches, the high emotions, the competitive environment, the multiplayer is simply a breeding ground for unbridled rage. Now Advanced Warfare has hit the shelves, and it's time to find the most ridiculous loadouts possible, hop into multiplayer matches, and harass other players with a whole lot of nonsense.

To induce considerable amounts of frustration (and confusion) from other players, I've come up with effective classes designed to transform you into that obnoxious turd that everyone hates. Behold! The troll classes of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. And remember, being a dumbass is best with friends. So, team up with your buddies and get grating on people's nerves.

The Agent of Shield

Primary: Heavy Shield
Secondary: Knife
Perk 1: Flak Jacket
Perk 2: Fast hands
Perk 3: Hard Wired
Exo: Exo Shield
Exo Launcher: Exo Stim
Wildcard 1: Tactician

Shield holders are extremely annoying. That's a fact. Except when you're behind the shield. Then being the shield holder is just a ton of fun. Here's the key: in Advanced Warfare, you can equip two shields at once (and actually hold them simultaneously if you want). Turtle yourself by wearing a Heavy Shield on your back and equip an Exo Shield to cover the front. Then block incoming gunfire with the Exo and stab enemies with a knife when they reload or try to throw a grenade. Become an invulnerable dunker in the Uplink mode, wedge players into corners and beat them to death, and render enemies' guns useless. I'm not saying you'll survive every encounter, but you're sure to shorten some opponents' tempers.

The BOOMer

Primary: Grenade launcher
Secondary: Rifle with underslung grenade launcher
Perk 1: Danger Close and Overcharge
Perk 2: Fast Hands
Exo: Exo Hover
Exo Launcher: Frag or other explosive
Wildcard 1: Overkill
Wildcard 2: Perk 1 Greed

There's a reason why noob tubes became so infamous in first-person shooters: explosives are cheap! One shot can kill you, there's splash damage, and everyone uses them. Well, in Advanced Warfare, get ready to take tubing to the extreme. To wreak havoc on the map with the Boomer class, equip the MDL and a rifle with an underslung grenade launcher and keep the explosions coming. Danger Close will get you that explosive damage and Fast Hands will get you lobbing at a faster rate. But if you want to get really creative, try using Exo Hover to glide over highly trafficked map areas (modes with capture points and objectives are prime real estate) and fire everything. Nothing's like raining concussive death upon your enemies from on high. The view is incredible.

The Invisible Man

Primary: Combat Knife
Perk 1: Lightweight and Low Profile
Perk 2: Blind Eye and Cold Blooded
Perk 3: Blast Suppressor
Exo: Exo Cloak
Exo Launcher: Smoke grenade
Wildcard 1: Perk 1 Greed
Wildcard 2: Perk 2 Greed

There always needs to be a knife troll class. It's REQUIRED. Nothing is worse than losing to a knife in a gunfight. That's why I've put together a class that allows you to get in close for those embarrassing slice-n'-dice kills. Make yourself invisible to enemy radar and vision enhancements by using all of the perks above, equip Exo Cloak, and hang out in dark, confined areas. For a little added flare, drop a few smoke grenades in your vicinity. When your victims come waltzing into your domain, they'll never know what hit 'em.

The Crotch Hunter

Primary: Tac-19 Shotgun
Perk 1: Lightweight
Perk 2: Gung Ho
Perk 3: Toughness
Exo: Exo stim
Exo Launcher: Exo overdrive
Wildcard 1: Tactician

Sliding into someone's crotch and blasting them with a shotgun is probably one of the most humbling and humiliating deaths you could ever give to an opponent. I mean, that person just got schooled. And that's what you're going to do. All. Day. Long. You're going to want to be as fast as possible so Lightweight and Exo Overdrive are a must. Slap on the Gung Ho perk for the ability to slide and shoot simultaneously and you're all set. When you're about to go head-on with an enemy, activate your exos, slide, and blast. Repeat until you detect sufficient enemy rage. Then keep going.

The Advanced Camper

Primary: XMG
Perk 1: Flak Jacket
Perk 3: Hardline toughness
Exo: Exo Stim
Exo Launcher: Tracking Drone
Wildcard 1: Perk 3 Greed
Scorestreak: Remote turret with sentry mod

This isn't your daddy's camping. You can make use of a bunch of futuristic military technology when you're hunkering down and racking up kills in Advanced Warfare--which makes things a bit easier than they used to be. Instead of relying on your own eyeballs and a rifle with a 30-round clip, now you have a dual XMGs with 150-round magazines (in each arm) and plenty of remote turret options to choose from. This dual-wield machine gun allows you to turn yourself into a stationary turret. Once you earn a remote turret, find yourself a well-trafficked, narrow pathway, set your Sentry-enable remote turret in one direction, and post up facing the other way and gun down everyone you see. The great thing about the XMG is there never needs a break between in firing to reloading. Just reload one hand at a time while the other gun keeps on rockin'.

How do you troll?

That's how I like to mix things up in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer. Do you have any troll/custom classes that you like to run just to get a rise out of the competition? I'd love to hear about it. Drop a line in the comments below.
