Strategies
The only way to really dominate CoD4 is to master getting the 5 kill streaks.  once you get that then you call in an airstrike and then a helicopter strike and then rinse and repeat.  So what do those guys that consistently get the top scores do?  Well there are four methods that consistently work:

1) Sonic Boom: You get this skill at level one and it essentially makes your grenades and grenade launcher into WMD's.  You can then get three super shots off: 2 grenade launchers + 1 frag or 3 frags (level 41).  This method is pretty handy on most levels/maps because it works with big and small servers alike.  You'll die alot sometimes but you're always going to take alot of people down with you.

2) Sniper: It may take a while until you get a hang of it but its pretty easy to get 5 kill streaks with the sniper rifle.  Really the only things that will kill a good sniper is a good sniper!  Especially maps that have long streets which you have to make your way down.

3) Camping: Be it a Light Machine gun or assault rifle or smg or maybe even a shotgun (though i've not tried), they can dominate when coupled with sweet camping spots.  Take bottle necks, high traffic areas or places where shooting through walls can get lots of kills.  This one is all about finding the right spots which takes some trial and error or some good tips...i won't go into what sweet spots i know in this post!

4) Balanced Play: Take any kit and just go fight.  Forget the strategies, some maps just require great overall skills!

MAPS

Ambush – Large desert town, excels in Sabotage Matches. US Forces vs. OpFor
This is an urban desert town divided horizontally by a main road, on which a convoy has been destroyed. The northern side is a shanty town, while the south side is constructed of sturdy materials and offers more stable cover. There are two drainage pipes running under the main road that run south to north.

Bloc – Large Russian apartment bloc. Intense Domination Matches. Spec Ops vs. Spetsnaz
This is a snowy, low visibility complex of apartment buildings. A central court yard with low walls slows your advance from building to building. Definitely a snipers map. There are some great stairwells that you can use, and of course a host of windows and other openings to snipe through. Most of the action takes place in the two facing apartment buildings, which both have upper and lower levels.

Downpour – Big rainy Russian farm. Excellent for Sabotage Matches. Spec Ops vs. Spetsnaz

Two main bridges connect the two sides of the level, and a main road runs down the center of the town on the south sode.

Wetwork – Medium-Large cargo ship. Fast-paced Search & Destroy Matches. SAS vs. Spetsnaz

which fits into balanced play.  as dominating as the p90+double tap combo is, there's not much you can do on some maps where nading or sniping dominates (e.g.-wetwork).   this isn't a guide for kit combos, but rather general strategies which work and don't work for the various maps.

IMO sonic boom is probably the single most powerful perk in the game.  it improves explosions considerably and makes the grenade launcher incredibly effective.  sonic boom + grenade launcher is almost a guaranteed two kills at least and doesn't require a great deal of skill.

yes, i forgot that sniping along the long alleyway is very effective.  probably because I've given up trying to run down that damn alley cause its a death trap.  still you're right that people can quickly get 5 kills that way.

Well, if you sit in that building overlooking the alleyway you can cover some of that middle area too.

I'm not much of a sniper myself though, I like to get in the action with my MP5 or silenced M4.

To fix:

First of all, Spec Ops should be SAS.

Incorrect maps:

Countdown: SAS vs. Spetsnaz
Overgrown: SAS vs. Spetsnaz
Pipeline: SAS vs. Spetsnaz
Shipment: SAS vs. Spetsnaz
Wet Work: SAS vs. Spetsnaz

Nice work with good effort but its bullshit. Camping and sniper on most maps is just your opinion which may work for you, but is just boring for most people. I NEVER snipe or camp and i can win most rounds without either.

You mist out P90 rushing to get to a great spot and dominate from there, and that's just one different strategy. There are a lot more than what you have put, and everyone suits a different style.

Sniper camping on S&D is just ghey, boring and makes you wanna kick the idiot doing it.

As for sonic boom, the nade spamming is bad enough without sonic boom making it even more retarded.

Good effort but your "chosen" strategies for the maps are lame, you can easily use all strategies, camping, hunting, or noob extreme on every map, the only strategy that works on a few maps is sniping.

The biggest problem i see is that overgrown is the best sniping map in the game. Pipeline is also an excellent sniping map especially on s&d.
