Mark Bryceland started playing video games when he was only a young boy on the Gameboy. That was his first taste of video game life. Gaming has always been a passion that Mark and his family enjoyed doing together, whether that was playing FIFA Football with his dad or beating his little sister at Super Mario Kart.
He got into competitive gaming through having that naturally competitive drive inside of him. He avidly competed in football and took it seriously. Mark had an Xbox and landed himself in a Gamebattles squad with school friends on Call of Duty 4. After winning games, Mark got hooked and felt the need to be the best.

Below are MarkyB’s Top 10 Tips for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer:
- Get used to the faster gameplay – First of all, the gameplay on this Call of Duty is a lot faster paced than some of the more ‘Classic’ style of games you may be used to. Sitting in one spot for an entire game maybe counter-productive and lead to you underperforming. I try and stick to the same areas but try and move around as much as possible to catch people off guard.
- Use the movement mechanics to your advantage – The likes of sliding, boosting and wallrunning can all be chained together and give you great results, you’ll surprise your opponents and take them out from above or you’ll even manage to sneak behind enemy lines to deal real damage.
- Choose the rig that suits your playstyle – The rigs all have their own unique Payloads and Traits, some of which suit different styles of player. For example, the Phantom with the Active Camo Payload allows you to make stealthy plays and is one of the easier payloads to earn. Compared to for example the Synaptic rig with it’s Equalizer payload which may take longer to earn but can be devastating to the other team.
- Equip the right perks – Using the correct perks has always been an integral part in success on Call of Duty. Using the right ones at the right times in game can be the difference between success and failure.
- Adjust your settings to suit you – Sensitivity, brightness and all the rest. Everything can affect how you play so mess around and see what feels best for you. I would recommend turning off motion blur and film grain also, if you’re new to the game.
- Pick the right weapon – Faster paced player, use an SMG for more mobility. Slower paced players, you could use an Assault Rifle or LMG(Light-Machine-Gun)
- Try and focus on improving your individual performance – Practice makes perfect, the more you play the better you’ll become and the more you’ll understand how the game works.
- Play to win – Biggest mistake anyone can make is constantly playing for kills and not for the objective. Not only can it be detrimental to your team, it can end up effecting the amount of kills you get. A good player will figure out how to both play objective while using it to get more kills.
- Use Ghosts – It’s honestly a crucial perk in Public matches with UAV’s being fairly easy to obtain for any level of player. Trust me, once it’s unlocked you should be using it every single game.
- Slow down the gameplay – Knowing when to speed up and slowdown is essential, you may think you constantly want to be sprinting around but you’ll need to slow it down. The TTK(Time-to-Kill) is fairly fast on this title so being caught sprinting a lot could lead to your demise.
