Here’s a few tips you should keep in mind in multiplayer matches:

  • Make sure you switch from Power, Stealth and Armor nanosuit modes all the time as required
  • Always keep an eye on your energy meter
  • Always pick up dog tags (if you’re too lazy just get the nanosuit module that picks it up automatically). Dog Tags allow you to call an orbital strike and similar rewards
  • Make sure you look at the map before you call in an orbital strike so you hit as many enemies as possible
  • Don’t forget to use the visor functionality. If your teammates kill a marked enemy you can also get additional points!

This is just a basic overview of the multiplayer leveling in Crysis 2, along with a few tips. Make sure you add your own tips and tricks in the comments below.

7 Thoughts to “Crysis 2 Multiplayer Progression & Leveling Guide

  1. Jason Bean

    First-Person shooters are the type of genre that originally got me interested in video games. There’ve been several good FPS games released this year (2011) but Crysis 2 is the first one that I feel is worth the $60, especially for us single-player only gamers.

    Even with it’s flaws Crysis 2 is an excellent game! With open-ended level designs, player customization, a good story and a lengthy single-player campaign (a little over ten hours on the first play-through!) with high replayability this is an FPS that’s more than worth the money you put into it. Highly recommended!

  2. Adesoji Ogungbesan

    Everything’s already been said about the graphics etc. Started a bit slow, not much action till Mission 10. I’ve heard it said that you choose how to play, what tactics to use etc, but (to me anyway) seems stealth is the only way to play, the suit can’t take many hits. Good game, bit frustrating at the beginning.

  3. S. Hull

    Crysis one wasn’t the world’s best game, but it was a blast.

    Crysis 2
    Pro’s – smoother, less demanding on PC, suit easier to use

    Cons- truly does feel like I’m playing the Xbox, as a PC port. It is VERY VERY VERY scripted/linear. I truly mean go to point A, B, C…. no free will like in Crysis. It has no replay abilityfactor. I tried multiplayer and found it annoying.

    Glad I got it for $29 on the daily deal, but overall it’s a one time play.

    I would NOT spend more than $25-29 on it at the max.

  4. Joe

    In spite of having to run the game on med-low resolution settings I found the game to be excellent. The story flows very well and you never get bored with it. The graphics are excellent, characters are well played for the most part, and the final battle is epic. Even the escort mission (the achillies heal of most games) felt realistic and worked well…

  5. 33rd degree scotish rite

    Game is garbage looks like trash on the xbox looks worse in 3d and runs like garbage on the xbox. Shouldn’t a game look better in 3d. It seems to take a hudge hit to the hardware on the xbox when its in 3d the game feels slow and unresponsive in 3d the floaty controls while in 3d is in my opinion uncalled for. The ai in campain is terrible I stood in a waterfall and watched aliens get stumped as they could not figure out how to get into the waterfall pathetic big step down from the original crysis I wish tesselation was out when they made crysis one.

  6. Crisis two gamer

    This game is superb mind blowingly perfect. The offline is fun and can be extremmly challenging when set on higher levels. The online is awsomely relistic just like offline. Dosent lags little to no glitches. U get hooked right fromm the begining. And if you invest a good 2 hours online u cant stop playing. Smuck mw3 and cod. I used to love until i played crisis and now they look like shit well worth 60$ get it email me At [censored] for secreat tips on how to rock and pown everybody in multiplayer(no cheats)

  7. Jim

    Im having a really hard time choosing mouse sensitivity in crysis multiplayer. I use the cl_sensitivity=# command but theres just so many choices. I hate when people say just put it on the lowest but thats not true aiming skill. sure anyone can slow down the sensitivity so they dont have to do much work…I want a sensitivity where its true hand eye coordination and not just low lazy sensitivity that feels like your dragging 50 pounds with your mouse just to move an inch on the screen..
