1. Kosh’s Modern Warfare 3 Strategy Guide

Rating: ★★★★★ 

Kosh is an extremely experienced gamer that has some amazing record-breaking scores in most games. He’s the author of some other highly successful guides for quite a few games, including the top-rated guide for BF3: Relik. His years of experience and highly skilled play translates into very helpful strategy guides, and Kosh’s MW3 Strategy Guide is certainly no exception.

This is THE one Modern Warfare 3 guide you simply must read if you’re even thinking of attempting any sort of online play. The competition there is fierce and if you want to level up fast and unlock all weapons, perks and attachments it will help immensely with each of those aspects. This MW3 strategy guide goes a lot further though and teaches you every single detail about all available weapons and their attachments. You’ll never again be confused as to which one you should use. It’ll also tell you all about various game modes, and teach you how to effectively counter your opponents.

The other amazing part of Kosh’s MW3 guide is that is contains a detailed and efficient maps guide which will show you the best locations to get kills and killstreaks without much trouble. Each available Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map is covered and this kind of information I wasn’t able to find anywhere else.

Of course while there are a ton of advanced tactics and strategies in this MW3 strategy guide there are also plenty of tips aimed at beginners at this game, so you’ll find a lot of basic stuff that will help you in case this is your first time with Call of Duty. Additionally, there’s a step by step singleplayer campaign guide, just in case you ever get stuck.

Kosh is also the only author that provides video guides as well. In short, this is a very detailed and extremely beneficial guide that really will help you get better at this game in more ways than one. Highly recommended.

2. BradyGames’ Modern Warfare 3 Guide

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

As a publisher of official game strategy guides, BradyGames is undoubtedly experienced with guides. However, that hardly means these guides are nearly as useful as others. This strategy guide is 350 pages long, but most of the content in it can be easily found on other websites online.

If you’re a complete beginner to Call of Duty I suppose BradyGames MW3 Strategy Guide could prove useful, as it does have references to a lot of stuff in game like weapons, attachments and perks. However, none of that info goes into too much detail and won’t give you much if an advantage. There are some tactics covered, but nothing you won’t figure out on your own after a few weeks.

Basically, if you want a paperback guide this is your only options, but you would do a lot better with Kosh’s MW3 guide.


While BradyGames is a relatively useful guide for beginners, it’s what you would expect from an official strategy guide. Kosh really knows this game a lot better than most players you will ever encounter in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and his extensive knowledge and experience definitely makes for a much better guide. Despite being unofficial, it’s miles ahead and my top recommendation.
