Today I will talk about how to put down proper Suppressive Fire. Suppressive fire (also known as covering fire) is a term used in military science for firing weapons at or in the direction of enemy forces with the primary goal of reducing their ability to defend themselves or return fire, by forcing them to remain under cover. Here is a short video I found about the Saw and suppressive fire. This video also features a new light machine gun coming out in the near future.
If your carrying a big weapon like the SAW in Call of Duty 4, your job is to put down suppressive fire. Your team relies on you to put down fire and force the enemies to take cover. This will allow your team to either gain a better position or to wipe out the other team entirely. If you don’t provide the proper cover fire your team will be demolished. Call of Duty 4 is a team game and if you want to be good then you must work together as one.
How to Put Down Suppressive Fire (Covering Fire):
Step 1: Find a Good position. Don’t be standing in a wide open area or you will be gunned down before you can supply any cover fire for your team. Try not to hide behind something that can be easily blown up such as, car, truck or explosive cannisters.
Step 2: Locate the enemies. Don’t just shoot at nothing for the sake of laying down fire. Shooting at nothing is pointless and will only get you and your team killed.
Step 3: Fire at Located enemies and call out enemy position. If you are able to get kills great, if not call out enemy positions. Force the enemy or enemies to stay in cover until a teammate can finish them off.
Step 4: Repeat Steps 1 to 3. If you can lay down effective suppressive fire your team will win a lot of games. It’s called doing the dirty work. Not everyone likes being at the bottom of the leader board in kills but if your winning who cares.
